Influenced by Lemmy, Helsinki Performance, Another Lyric Video, and Teaching Gig

Influenced by Lemmy


You may hear something a bit familiar with new music from Halestorm. Lzzy Hale says her influence for writing new music lately has been Motorhead. The band is piecing together tunes for a new album and in an interview with Music Radar, Hale says the band is halfway done. Hale says writing new music is exciting, but it’s a “mindf**k”. As for the Motorhead influence, Hale says she asked herself “if [Motorhead front man] Lemmy was a girl and played guitar, what would he [or rather she] do?” Lemmy isn’t the only influence. Hale says that some of the songs they’ve pieced together sound like Tom Petty tunes as well. There’s no firm timeline for when the new album will be available.


Helsinki performance


Wanna hear Metallica perform a decades old song for the first time? The band has released footage of their set in Helsinki, Finland, where they performed “The Frayed Ends of Sanity” from the 1988 album … And Justice For All. The 30-minute video shows the band warming up and doing a sound check while rain comes down. Their overseas tour is better known as their “By Request” where fans in Helsinki requested the ‘80s Metallica tune.



Another lyric video


They just might release the entire album in lyric videos before it’s even released. Another lyric video from Linkin Park--this time it’s a tune that features System of a Down’s Daron Malakian, and you can kinda tell ‘cause it’s quite riffy, in a SOAD way. Not only does Malakian jam on the six string for the song, he also provides his voice. The tune “Rebelion” can be found on the band’s forthcoming album The Hunting Party which drops in stores June 17th.



Teaching gig


If there was ever a reason to go to college to study music, this might be it. Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi is now a professor of music at London’s Coventry University. Iommi was given an Honorary Doctorate of Arts by Coventry last year, a sign of appreciation, but with an actual teaching gig, the doctorate has gone from a nice gesture to being very practical! Iommi will be teaching this fall.
