The new Volbeat record is coming together with some heavy hitters of metal. Not only has former Anthrax guitarist Rob Cagiano joined the band, but the Danish rockers also have welcomed into studio fellow Danish metal legend King Diamond. The album titled Outlaw Gentlemen and Shady Ladies, which is due out April 9th, will also feature a slew of various characters and themes. From man Michael Poulsen says that the album is going to be quintessential Volbeat, but even more of “the rockabilly stuff, the melodies, the ultra-heavy stuff, the Western motifs and the big rock songs. It’s everything that Volbeat are all about, but taken even further.” This will be the bands 5th attempt.
It's gonna be dirty
Speaking of forthcoming albums, Alice In Chains guitarist and spokesman Jerry Cantrell says that the new album is going to have some real filth to it. Due out in May and titled The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, it’ll be the second full length album with singer William Duval. Cantrell says the band is growing in their sound and fans are going to notice some distinct changes. Meanwhile, their latest single “Hollow” is rocking the charts. Request it today on QLZ.
New lyric video
In This Moment has released a lyric video for the tune “Adrenalize”. The video (below or at this link) shows a dingy hallway that seems to be falling apart then zooms out to show a decrepit house. As with all other lyric videos, the lyrics come in full force and dominate the screen. One good thing about lyric videos … it helps ingrain the tune in your head so when you see them live you can sing along with front woman Maria Brink. In This Moment will be at Boondocks in Springfield March 28th.
Nothing like a good knighting
An Australian woman has gotten her 500th signature on a petition to Knight Ozzy Osbourne and surely she’ll get a ton more. Helen Maidiotis says she wanted to get the whole band knighted but figured it would be best to just focus on Ozzy at first and then move on from there. In other Osbourne news, Ozzy’s daughter Kelly is hospitalized after suffering seizures. The Seizure happened while she was filming her E! show “Fashion Police.” Not further details were available.
