RUMOURS\\ Live N' Louder: festival volta com Twisted Sister no mês de abril

Segundo informações do jornal Destak, em celebração aos 25 anos da produtora Top Link, o festival Live N' Louder terá nova edição no dia 14 de abril, em São Paulo. Uma das atrações será a banda Twisted Sister. Mais informações em breve.

Entrevista\\ Korn: estaria Brian Head Welch retornando à banda?

O ex-guitarrista do KORN e atual frontman do LOVE & DEATH, Brian “Head” Welch, está lentamente trabalhando sua volta às fileiras do KORN, desde sua aparição surpresa no Carolina Rebellion Festival em 2012, onde Welch tocou “Blind” com o resto do KORN. Agora que o guitarrista já tem compromissos com a banda no Rock On the Range Festival, em Ohio, além de várias datas na Europa, a possibilidade de Welch permanecer com o KORN se torna mais e mais real.

Além da performance surpresa de Welch e as novas datas do KORN, contendo o guitarrista, o companheiro de banda, James “Munky” Schaffer, contou ao Loudwire, em uma entrevista exclusiva, que ele gostaria de ver o amigo voltar eventualmente. Em uma entrevista com a Rolling Stone, Head afirmou que compartilha de sua animação com a turnê, além da vontade de retornar ao grupo.
“Todos neste mundo estão quebrados.” Disse Welch à Rolling Stone. “Há muitos divórcios, ódio e rancor. Para as pessoas, ver isto [a turnê de Welch com o KORN], eu acho que é realmente edificante. Eu nunca pensei que fosse acontecer, e eu ainda não estou certo de tudo. Os fãs adoraram, porque muitos dos fãs daquela época tinham tendências suicidas e de lares partidos, vindo de abuso. Eles nos olhavam como sua família e ver sua família se separar foi difícil para eles. Colar todos os pedaços dá uma alegria às pessoas que se importam com isso.”

Quando perguntado sobre uma possibilidade de uma turnê completa nos Estados Unidos com o KORN, Welch pareceu aberto à ideia, ainda que um tanto quanto realista: “Nós estamos indo devagar. Diz. “Nós estamos juntos quando eu tenho tempo, mas eu vou lançar meu álbum agora e eles estão ocupados com suas coisas, mas neste momento eu diria que nada é impossível.”
Finalmente, quando perguntado se gravaria mais um álbum com o grupo, o guitarrista afirma: “Novamente, eu diria que nada é impossível”.

CIRCLE PIT \\ Killswitch Engage lança novo single

Premiere\\ SOUNDGARDEN: DAVE GROHL-Directed 'By Crooked Steps' Video Available


Reunited grunge legends SOUNDGARDEN tapped FOO FIGHTERS frontman and documentary director Dave Grohl to get behind the camera on December 18 and shoot the band's new video for its song "By Crooked Steps". The clip, which casts SOUNDGARDEN as a "Sons Of Anarchy" type of biker gang and also features electronic DJ sensation Deadmau5 in a cameo role, can now be seen below.

"By Crooked Steps" is taken from SOUNDGARDEN's first album in 16 years, "King Animal", which came out in November and sold 83,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart.

Grohl has directed a number of videos for FOO FIGHTERS, and has completed his first feature-length documentary, "Sound City", which will be released later this year. The film chronicles the history of the legendary Los Angeles studio where acts like NIRVANA, FLEETWOOD MAC, TOM PETTY, METALLICA and many others recorded classic albums.

"By Crooked Steps" follows "Been Away Too Long" as the second single from "King Animal". Singer Chris Cornell told The Pulse Of Radio a little about the tune: "It's one of the earlier songs that we started working on, but I also felt like it, to me, is like definitely sort of a new chapter for us. If you wanted to take one example of SOUNDGARDEN progressing, that's a good one for me."

SOUNDGARDEN reunited in 2010 after a 13-year break, releasing a retrospective collection called "Telephantasm" and a concert album titled "Live On I-5".

The band kicked off a winter North American tour on January 18 in Washington D.C.

RUMOURS\\ Black Sabbath no Brasil 2013? Butler confirma América do Sul


O ícone Black Sabbath pode vir ao Brasil ainda este ano! Nos bastidores da Feira Internacional de Música NAMM, o baixista Geezer Butler fez uma entrevista à Rádio KCAL Rocks 96,7 FM, de Redlands (California, Estados Unidos), contando quais os planos da banda para 2013.

De acordo com Butler, o Black Sabbath começará sua turnê em abril com shows na Nova Zelândia e Austrália. Em seguida, vai para o Japão para uma versão do festival Ozzfest. Em junho será lançado o novo álbum do grupo seguido por uma turnê pela América do Norte. Em seguida, ele faz uma observação que irá para América do Sul e Europa.

Rocknews\\ Axl Rose: vocalista fala sobre vítimas da tragédia em Santa Maria

"Terrivelmente triste pelas famílias e amigos que perderam seus entes queridos no incêndio de um clube no Brasil e orando por aqueles que estão feridos", postou Axl Rose em seu twitter oficial.

Entrevista\\ Anthrax: Scott Ian esclarece desejo de falência da indústria

O guitarrista SCOTT IAN do ANTHRAX informou que, quando disse recentemente em uma entrevista que "nada o faria mais feliz" do que ver a falência da indústria musical, ele não se referia as gravadoras independentes que ajudam o cenário da música underground há mais de 30 anos.

Conversando com a revista australiana Loud, SCOTT IAN foi questionado sobre o futuro da indústria da música. "Eu não sei mesmo - Eu não me importo; Eu não tenho ideia," ele respondeu. "Eu realmente não dou a mínima para a indústria. (...) Eu só tenho esperanças de que toda a indústria entre em colapso e vá à falência, ou algo do tipo, porque eu realmente não tenho nada de bom para dizer sobre a indústria musical."

Ele continuou: "Quando você pensa sobre os bilhões e bilhões de dólares que as gravadoras roubaram das bandas desde a década de 40 até meados da década de 90, e agora se queixam que ninguém compra mais discos. Bem, de quem é a culpa, você sabe? Essas companhias, corporações e indivíduos literalmente roubaram bilhões de dólares e voce teve artistas, bandas que já não existem mais e literalmente são como, há um passo de ser um sem-teto ou viver em abrigos, ou o que seja. Mas você não vê a maioria dos músicos se aposentando e vivendo o resto de suas vidas com milhões e milhões de dólares, apenas por ter deixado uma gravadora. Esta grande porcaria é insana, a forma como as gravadoras atuavam. Especialmente nos anos 40, 50, 60 e 70, quando as bandas era realmente roubadas."

Em uma série de mensagens enviadas pelo seu Twitter na última noite (Sexta, 25 de Janeiro), SCOTT IAN elaborou em seus comentários: "Apenas para esclarecer o que eu disse sobre a falência da indústria musical em uma entrevista recente... Eu não estava falando de selos independentes como o Megaforce, Nuclear Blast, Metal Blade, etc. etc. Esses selos mudaram os negócios e acharam um meio que funciona e não são apenas justos com as bandas, mas vão atrás de desenvolver a banda do jeito que era feito quando começamos. Os grandes selos já não tem mais lugar no rock/metal e se você é uma grande banda, é melhor fazer as coisas por voces mesmo. Este era o ponto que eu queria dizer."

"Head is back!!," says KORN's Jonathan Davis. "Rock On The Range is going to start it all off!! Get ready, we are going to hit it hard!!"

"BUSH are thrilled to be playing Rock On The Range with such great bands," says BUSH's Gavin Rosdale. "We look forward to seeing you all out there."

"This massive lineup has scratched our seven-year itch!" says Gary Spivack, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. "Getting SOUNDGARDEN for their first Ohio play in two decades and having seminal acts ALICE IN CHAINS, KORN, VOLBEAT and PAPA ROACH return along with bands new to Rock On The Range that include SMASHING PUMPKINS and BUSH, and everything in between — the spectrum of rock n roll is covered…three days of constant energy. Rock On The Range is truly where rock lives."

Now in its seventh year, Rock On The Range will again take place at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, May 17, Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, 2013. With the addition of a full slate of artists performing on Friday, festival organizers are also adding a series of additional enhancements for Rock On The Range 2013, including the new Rock On The Range Comedy Tent.

"Our goal with Rock On The Range is to constantly create new and interesting ways to expand the event and give even more value to our fans," comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live. "In 2013, we've added a comedy tent within the site that will be curated by The Funny Bone comedy club. Having a slate of incredible, up-and-coming comedians to riff on the rock experience will be a great change of pace for the weekend. The site layout is also changing dramatically in 2013 to create better event flow, to add more interactive fan activity to the festival, and to allow even more people to experience the higher caliber of talent on the second stage this year."

As a special limited offer, pre-sale weekend tickets startat a low price of $89.50 (plus fees), for Stadium GA tickets only, from Wednesday, January 30 through Thursday, January 31 at 10 p.m. EST.

The nationally renowned festival, centrally located in the heart of the country, has annually drawn weekend crowds in excess of 70,000 since its inception in 2007.

CIRCLE PIT \\ BRING ME THE HORIZON: 'Shadow Moses' Video Released


"Shadow Moses", the new video from the British metalcore act BRING ME THE HORIZON, can be seen below. The song comes off the band's fourth album, "Sempiternal", which will be released on April 29 in Europe via RCA and one day later in North America through Epitaph.

Proving to be perpetual favorites among fans, the CD's first single, "Shadow Moses", came charging out of the gates earlier this month after premiering on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, forcing Epitaph to post the song on YouTube a week in advance due to popular demand.

"There's a very euphoric sound coursing through the album, a very uplifting but yet sad sound," says BRING ME THE HORIZON frontman Oliver Sykes. "Electronically, it's far more advanced than anything we've done before."

The five-piece, consisting of Oliver Sykes, Lee Malia, Matt Kean, Matt Nicholls and Jordan Fish, recorded "Sempiternal" over a three-month period with super producer Terry Date (LINKIN PARK, DEFTONES, SOUNDGARDEN). The band also brought in David Bendeth (A DAY TO REMEMBER, PARAMORE) to add to the all-star production lineup and mix the album.

"Writing 'Sempiternal' was a completely different process," comments Sykes. "We worked from a computer, laying down ideas and riffs and working on them tirelessly until we had what we wanted." For the first time, "Sempiternal" sees a new member appearing on the record, Jordan Fish, who takes on keyboard duties on the record as well as during live performances. "Bringing Jordan into the mix changed things completely; he opened up so many more possibilities."

Sykes goes on to say: "The lyrical theme is everything. My head was a lot clearer when writing this time and it allowed me to write from a different perspective. It's the best stuff I've ever written, in my opinion. It's very dramatic, quite blunt, and at times sarcastic, but the biggest part of it — is how it is combined with the music to bring the listener vivid imagery and emotion. I think we really managed to pull that off."

"Sempiternal" is an embracing ride through soaring vocals, supercharged melodies and what can only be described as spine tingling metal anthems.

After the critical and commercial success of their previous albums, "There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret" (2010) and their breakout success "Suicide Season" (2008), BRING ME THE HORIZON plans to take heavy music to the next level, incorporating the most dynamic elements of hard music to create one of the most exhilarating albums of the year.

"Sempiternal" track listing:

01. Can You Feel My Heart
02. The House Of Wolves
03. Empire (Let Them Sing)
04. Sleepwalking
05. Go To Hell, For Heaven's Sake
06. Shadow Moses
07. And The Snakes Start To Sing
08. Seen It All Before
09. Anti-vist
10. Crooked Young
11. Hospitals For Souls

BRING ME THE HORIZON recently parted ways with guitarist Jona Weinhofen. A replacement axeman has not yet been announced.

Traduza\\ MOTÖRHEAD, ANTHRAX, CANNIBAL CORPSE, PRIMAL FEAR Celebrate 30th Anniversary Of METALLICA Debut

MOTÖRHEAD, ANTHRAX, CANNIBAL CORPSE and PRIMAL FEAR are among the bands who are featured on Metal Hammer Germany's "A Tribute To Kill 'Em All" CD, celebrating the 30th anniversary of METALLICA's classic debut album. The collection features every single song from the original METALLICA LP performed by a different artist and includes two exclusive tracks: "(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth" by EISREGEN and THE VISION BLEAK, and "Jump In The Fire" by DUST BOLT.

"A Tribute To Kill 'Em All" track listing:

01. Hit The Lights - BLACK TIDE
02. The Four Horsemen - BURDEN OF GRIEF
03. Motorbreath (live) - RAGE
04. Jump In The Fire - DUST BOLT (exclusive)
05. (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth - EISREGEN and THE VISION BLEAK (exclusive)
06. Whiplash - MOTÖRHEAD
07. Phantom Lord - ANTHRAX
08. No Remorse - CANNIBAL CORPSE
09. Seek & Destroy - PRIMAL FEAR
10. Metal Militia - DEW-SCENTED

Originally issued on July 25, 1983 through the independent label Megaforce Records, "Kill 'Em All" was recorded in two weeks on a miniscule budget in upstate New York. Although only 1,500 copies were initially pressed, the album was reissued by Elektra Records after the band signed to that label in 1984 and has since been certified triple platinum for sales of more than three million copies.

The original title of "Kill 'Em All" was "Metal Up Your Ass".

The album's opening cut, "Hit the Lights", was the first song that frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich wrote together after forming METALLICA. An early version of the track appeared on the 1982 compilation "Metal Massacre".

Lead guitarist Dave Mustaine was replaced by Kirk Hammett shortly before recording commenced, although Mustaine still has several writing credits on the disc and went on to form MEGADETH.

A number of songs from the album are still part of METALLICA's set list to this day, including "The Four Horsemen", "Seek and Destroy" and "No Remorse".

METALLICA has since gone on to become one of the biggest rock bands in the world, selling tens of millions of copies of its eight studio albums, including 15 million alone of 1991's self-titled "black album." The band's ninth effort, "Death Magnetic", arrived in 2008.

Premiere\\ SISTER SIN: 'Hearts Of Cold' Video Released


"Hearts Of Cold", the new video from Swedish female-fronted heavy rockers SISTER SIN, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Eric Richter in Chicago, Illinois and "packs a ferocious punch in a span of four minutes and sixteen seconds that will have your adrenaline rushing with your fist held high," according to a press release. The song is loosely based on characters Mikey and Mallory from the 1994 movie "Natural Born Killers" and mirrors the Finnish, real-life version of them — Juha Veikko Valjakkala and Marita Routalammi — who crossed the border over to Sweden and killed a family of three.

"Hearts Of Cold" comes off SISTER SIN's third album, "Now And Forever", which entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 44. Released on October 23, 2012 via Victory Records, the CD was recorded at Standstraight Studios in Stockholm with producer Chris Snyder and was mixed by Cameron Webb (MOTÖRHEAD, SOCIAL DISTORTION, DANZIG).

SISTER SIN singer Liv Jagrell underwent surgery in November to remove nodules on her vocal cords. As a result, the band was forced to cancel all of its previously announced shows for the remainder of 2012.

Premiere\\ Ghost: vídeo de novo single, "Secular Haze" na TV sueca

Traduza\\ GHOST: Studio Version Of 'I'm A Marionette' Available On SPOTIFY


The studio recording of GHOST's cover version of ABBA's "I'm A Marionette" has been released on Spotify and is now available for streaming in the YouTube clip below. The track, which reportedly features none other than Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) handling production duties and sitting behind the drum kit, serves as the B-side of GHOST's strictly limited 10-inch clear vinyl version of its new single, "Secular Haze". You can now pre-order a copy from the Swedish webshop Bengans.se.

In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, one of the Nameless Ghouls stated about GHOST's decision to record an ABBA' cover: "We are Swedish, and ABBA has always been a very, very strong part of our modern musical heritage. We all grew up with their music very present. Not only that — ABBA basically took a few hundred years of traditional Swedish music and made it into pop songs. I'm talking about folk music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Anybody outside Scandinavia probably isn't familiar with those tones or musical language. But one of the reasons ABBA broke through so enormously first in Sweden was probably because of their folk music influences. I think anyone from Scandinavia is easily infatuated with that sort of music, so ABBA has a deeper meaning to us, I think."

GHOST will release its sophomore album, "Infestissumam", in the spring via Loma Vista Recordings, the new record label founded by Tom Whalley in partnership with Republic Records, a division of Universal Music Group. Frontman Papa Emeritus and his Nameless Ghouls summoned Nashville-based Grammy Award-winning Nick Raskulinecz (DEATH ANGEL, DEFTONES, FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH) to produce this offering.

"Infestissumam" track listing:

01. Infestissumam
02. Per Aspera Ad Inferi
03. Secular Haze
04. Jigolo Har Megiddo
05. Ghuleh / Zombie Queen
06. Year Zero
07. Idolatrine
08. Body And Blood
09. Depth Of Satans Eyes
10. Monstrance Clock

The band's debut album, "Opus Eponymous", was released in late 2010 in Europe and in early 2011 in North America via Rise Above Records.

Traduza\\ METALLICA To Perform Entire 'Black' Album At Australia's SOUNDWAVE Festival?


According to Australia's KillYourStereo.com, Soundwave festival promoter AJ Maddah has confirmed that METALLICA will play a two-hour set at this year's event, complete with the "Snakepit" rig, all but confirming that the band's setlist will include the entirety of METALLICA's 1991 self-titled effort.

The last time this rig was used was during METALLICA's 2012 European tour where the LP was played backwards, starting with closing number "The Struggle Within" and ending with "Enter Sandman".

Asked whose idea it was for METALLICA to play the "black" album in reverse on the most recent tour, the band's drummer, Lars Ulrich, told Rolling Stone magazine, "If you like the idea, it was mine. If you don't, it was James' [Hetfield, guitar/vocals]. For better or worse, I'm the setlist guy. This is all subject to change if it doesn't work. But the idea of starting off with the lesser-known songs buried down there and ending up with 'Sad But True' and 'Enter Sandman' seems like a winner. You finish with the money shot, which is the first song."

"Metallica" in 2009 surpassed SHANIA TWAIN's 1997 record, "Come On Over", as the best-selling CD of the SoundScan era. To date, the black album has sold more than 16 million copies in the United States.

Although METALLICA had scored their first radio and video airplay with their previous effort, 1988's "...And Justice For All", the black album was the band's biggest commercial breakthrough, producing five singles and making them into one of the most popular rock bands in the world.

Rocknews\\ Nikki Sixx: fazendo as pazes com Tracii Guns após quase 10 anos



Mais de 10 anos depois de terem formado o BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, e nove depois de terem trocado farpas na internet, NIKKI SIXX [MÖTLEY CRÜE, SIXX: A.M., 58] e TRACII GUNS [L.A. GUNS, HOLLYWOOD ROSE] parecem ter feito as pazes.

Aparentemente, a mão estendida veio de Nikki, que no dia de ontem, 20 de Janeiro, quando o baixista felicitou Guns pelo seu aniversário de 47 anos no Twitter. O cumprimento levou a uma conversa afável de ambos os lados, com direito à troca de memórias dos ‘bons tempos’.

Sixx deixou o Brides of Destruction em 2004 para retomar o então hibernante Crüe, o que deu início a uma sequência de acusações de ambas as partes – e com JOHN CORABI [também ex-membro do BOD] tomando partido de Nikki contra Tracii, cujo suposto ‘ego inflado’ teria deflagrado a implosão da banda.

SEFOTEU\\ Madman se fere em incêndio em sua residência

Um incêndio na casa de OZZY OSBOURNE e sua esposa, Sharon Osbourne, na manhã de 17 de janeiro, deixou o Madman com cabelo chamuscado, sem sombrancelhas e com pequenas queimaduras em seu rosto, além de afetar um problema na mão.

Bombeiros foram chamados à residência de Ozzy, nas colinas de Beverly Hills, por volta de 4:45 da manhã, para combater um incêndio causado por uma vela que não foi apagada antes do casal ir para a cama. A vela foi alojada em um vaso de vidro que supostamente explodiu, causando um pequeno incêndio na sala de estar da casa. Sharon e Ozzy, que havia sido submetido a uma cirurgia na mão na véspera, tentaram apagar as chamas, mas os esforços resultaram em ferimentos leves no vocalista.

Ozzy tentou apagar o fogo com sua mão ainda imobilizada e Sharon jogou água sobre as chamas, fazendo com que elas se espalhassem. A explosão resultante queimou o cabelo de Ozzy até suas orelhas, afetando sombrancelha e bochecha. Sharon e os animais de estimação não sofreram ferimentos.
Sharon descreveu o incidente em seu programa "The Talk", hoje:

"Às cinco da manhã ouvi um ruído de metal caindo. Pensei que era nossa empregada chegando e que tinha deixado cair suas chaves, então, não dei muita importância. Poucos minutos depois, com os olhos cerrados e a garganta fechada, pensei 'tem algo cheirando mal por aqui'.

Então, meu cachorro começou a latir, desci as escadas e a sala inteira estava pegando fogo. A vela tinha queimado e o som era do vidro quebrando e da vela explodindo...

Meu marido fez uma cirurgia em sua mão ontem e está com ela imobilizada... ele desceu e foi como 'oh, fogo, fogo!' E tentou apagá-lo com sua mão debilitada. Então ele abriu as portas francesas e eu fui até a cozinha e joguei água sobre aquilo, e houve uma erupção...

O cabelo de Ozzy (da orelha para baixo) desapareceu! Suas sombrancelhas sumiram... e sua bochechas também foram afetadas. Estávamos como dois idiotas. Tudo o que não deveria ser feito - ir para a cama com velas acesas, abrir as portas e jogar água por cima - nós fizemos.
Eles (os bombeiros) vieram e nos deram uma lição e Ozzy era como 'ela fez isso para mim por 32 anos! Diga a ela, diga a ela, nada de velas mais!'

Peço desculpas ao meu marido porque ele se colocou em perigo. Ele piorou sua mão, ela começou a sangrar. Me desculpe, eu te amo e nunca mais vou acender uma vela novamente...
Quero agradecer aos magníficos bombeiros de Beverly Hills e quero dizer à todos lá fora, por favor, verifiquem suas velas antes de ir para a cama."

Estamos contentes em saber que Ozzy escapou com apenas ferimentos leves. 2013 está apontando para um grande ano da lenda do Metal, BLACK SABBATH, que anunciou recentemente o lançamento de seu novo e aguardado álbum "13", em junho.

Premiere\\ HARDCORE SUPERSTAR: 'One More Minute' Video Released


Swedish sleaze rockers HARDCORE SUPERSTAR will release their new album, "C'mon Take On Me", in Europe on March 1 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2010's "Split Your Lip" was produced by the bandmembers themselves and mixed by Randy Staub (METALLICA, MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE CULT).

The video for the first single from the album, "One More Minute", can be seen below.

"One More Minute" is available for free download from the Nuclear Blast web site.

"C'mon Take On Me" will be made as a CD in slipcase, as a digital download, on black vinyl and on strictly limited pink vinyl (only available at the Nuclear Blast mailorder).

Commented HARDCORE SUPERSTAR drummer Magnus "Adde" Andreasson: "We came up with the idea [for the 'C'mon Take On Me' cover] during the recordings of the album. It's just so sexy when a woman jumps into a drum kit — what could be more exciting? We discussed the concept with photographer Micke Johansson, who loved the idea. What we especially like about it is the combination of sex and bruises!"

"C'mon Take On Me" track listing:

01. Cutting The Slack
02. C'mon Take On Me
03. One More Minute
04. Above The Law
05. Are You Gonna Cry Now
06. Stranger Of Mine
07. Won't Take The Blame Pt. 1
08. Won't Take The Blame Pt. 2 (Sect Meeting)
09. Dead Man's Shoes
10. Because Of You
11. Too Much Business
12. Long Time No See

HARDCORE SUPERSTAR celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2011 with a best-of album, "The Party Ain't Over 'Til We Say So". The collection contained songs from all the records that the band released between 2000 and 2010 along with a newly written track, "We Don't Need A Cure".

"Split Your Lip" was released in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records except in Scandinavia, where it was made available through Gain Records.

Premiere\\ TREMONTI: 'Wish You Well' Video Released


"Wish You Well", the new video from TREMONTI, the band led by CREED and ALTER BRIDGE guitarist Mark Tremonti, can be seen below.

TREMONTI will head out on the road again to bring its debut album, "All I Was", to the fans live around the world. The tour kicks off in Copenhagen, Denmark and runs through March 5, wrapping up at the famed Roxy Theater in West Hollywood, California. The trek will make stops in Berlin, Milan and London, to name a few, before coming back to the U.S. where it will stop in markets such as Pontiac, Minneapolis, Chicago and Seattle, among others.

VAN HALEN bassist Wolfgang Van Halen made his first appearance as part of Tremonti's solo band in September at a show in Rhode Island. This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father Eddie, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth.

Asked if he is going to be involved with future TREMONTI tours and recording sessions, Wolfgang told "Robb's MetalWorks", "Yeah, every chance that I have. I'd love to be a part of this. If they'll let me, I guess," he joked.

Wolfgang Van Halen is replacing Tremonti's bandmate from CREED and ALTER BRIDGE, Brian Marshall, who is sitting out the Tremonti trek for undisclosed personal reasons. The other members of Tremonti's touring band include Eric Friedman on guitar and Garrett Whitlock on drums.

Premiere\\ BUCKCHERRY: 'Gluttony' Video Released


The official video for the song "Gluttony" from Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY can be seen below. The clip was shot in November in Los Angeles, with the band putting out an open casting call for fans to appear in the video.

"Gluttony" is the first single from BUCKCHERRY's sixth studio album, "Confessions", which is due on February 13. The disc will be BUCKCHERRY's first domestic release with new label Century Media Records. The CD will be made available via Eleven Seven Music in other parts of the world.

"It's just about trying to control your behavior," BUCKCHERRY singer Josh Todd tells Loudwire about "Gluttony". "They always say that you have to do everything in moderation and that's never been my experience. One is okay, two is better, three is fantastic and four is the best. I want to consume everything, I want to go big or go home. I'm either on 11 or I'm asleep."

He continued: "That's my problem, that's my struggle, trying to moderate — that's what 'Gluttony' is about. It's like, 'I want it, I need it, I love it' and everything that feels good to me, I want to overdo it. It's just who I am and I don't understand why I can't do it."

"Confessions" is a loose concept album that revolves around the notion of the seven deadly sins and is inspired by events in Todd's childhood.

"Confessions" track listing:

01. Gluttony
02. Wrath
03. Nothing Left But Tears
04. The Truth
05. Greed
06. Water
07. Seven Ways To Die
08. Air
09. Sloth
10. Pride
11. Envy
12. Lust
13. Dreamin' Of You

Todd has helped co-write a short film that will come out around the same time as the album and expand upon the record's themes. It's not clear yet how the film will be distributed.

Todd said that "Confessions" is "definitely a heavier, musically, record than we've ever had, and more melodic. It's pretty intense, but everybody's gonna love it. It's quintessential BUCKCHERRY at the end of the day."

The band will join KID ROCK as special guests on his upcoming "Rebel Soul" tour, beginning February 2 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Premiere\\ Krokus Debut "Dirty Dynamite" Video


On February 22nd Krokus will release their 17th studio album entitled 'Dirty Dynamite' and have posted a music video for the first single and title track.

For almost 40 years now Krokus has stood for high-quality, honest-to-goodness, hand-made power rock. No other Swiss rock band sells albums and its back catalogue worldwide like Krokus. The band has already sold over 14 million records, toured the world and received gold and platinum record awards. The milestones in their rock career are dotted around the world: from Australia and the USA to Canada, Mexico, Russia, Japan and Chin.


But it hasn't all been one long "high": death, sickness and internal strife have pushed the band to the brink of collapse. The story of Krokus is like no other. Dotted with highs and lows, sell-out stadium concerts and sweaty club gigs, these five musketeers of rock have outlasted trends and survived treacherous US managers, tough splits, bad deals, shady lawyers, drugs, awful fast food, endless bus trips, disco, grunge, grotesque record companies and double-dealing advisors.

Today they are back in their classic line-up -- Marc Storace, Chris von Rohr, Fernando von Arb, Mark Kohler, and Mandy Meyer -- and are stronger than ever on their new album 'Dirty Dynamite'. Guest musician Kosta Zafiriou plays drums on the entire album. The band spent a whole two years working on the new album under the watchful eye of bassist and original founder Chris Von Rohr. "We didn't spend all that time on golf courses or tennis courts. No, we just wanted to make the best album yet, the magnum opus of the new Krokus era" says the hit producer. Guitarist Mark Kohler has this to add, "This is not just another Krokus album. I think we have definitely passed another rock milestone with this record."

To reach this goal, no expense was spared. The band booked into the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Krokus went back to their roots, back to where it all began with the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Free, the Who and the Bluesbreakers. Back to where the band headlined concerts in the Hammersmith Odeon, celebrating their first international success. "The atmosphere there is very special and we wanted to make the most of that," says vocalist Marc Storace. Guitarist Fernando Von Arb is quick to add, "With Dirty Dynamite we have recorded the urgently needed dirty kind of rock that no one plays in this country."

'Dirty Dynamite' track listing:
01. Hallelujah Rock'n'Roll
02. Go Baby Go
03. Rattlesnake Rumble
04. Dirty Dynamite
05. Let The Good Times Roll
06. Help
07. Better Than Sex
08. Dog Song
09. Yellow Mary
10. Bailout Blues
11. Live Ma Life
12. Hardrocking Man

Traduza\\ DAVE GROHL Featured On GHOST's Cover Version Of ABBA's 'I'm A Marionette'


Swedish webshop Bengans.se, which delivers to every country in the world, is accepting preorders for the strictly limited 10-inch clear vinyl version of "Secular Haze", the new single from the mysterious Swedish buzz band GHOST. Featured on the single's B-side is GHOST's cover version of ABBA's "I'm A Marionette" with none other than Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA) handling production duties and sitting behind the drum kit.

In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, one of the Nameless Ghouls stated about GHOST's decision to record an ABBA' cover: "We are Swedish, and ABBA has always been a very, very strong part of our modern musical heritage. We all grew up with their music very present. Not only that — ABBA basically took a few hundred years of traditional Swedish music and made it into pop songs. I'm talking about folk music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Anybody outside Scandinavia probably isn't familiar with those tones or musical language. But one of the reasons ABBA broke through so enormously first in Sweden was probably because of their folk music influences. I think anyone from Scandinavia is easily infatuated with that sort of music, so ABBA has a deeper meaning to us, I think."

GHOST will release its sophomore album, "Infestissumam", in the spring via Loma Vista Recordings, the new record label founded by Tom Whalley in partnership with Republic Records, a division of Universal Music Group. Frontman Papa Emeritus and his Nameless Ghouls summoned Nashville-based Grammy Award-winning Nick Raskulinecz (DEATH ANGEL, DEFTONES, FOO FIGHTERS, RUSH) to produce this offering.

"Infestissumam" track listing:

01. Infestissumam
02. Per Aspera Ad Inferi
03. Secular Haze
04. Jigolo Har Megiddo
05. Ghuleh / Zombie Queen
06. Year Zero
07. Idolatrine
08. Body And Blood
09. Depth Of Satans Eyes
10. Monstrance Clock

The band's debut album, "Opus Eponymous", was released in late 2010 in Europe and in early 2011 in North America via Rise Above Records.

Premiere\\ NEWSTED: 'Soldierhead' Video Released


"Soldierhead", the first video from NEWSTED, the band fronted by former METALLICA, VOIVOD and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM bassist Jason Newsted, can be seen below. Directed by Leon Melas, the clip was filmed on December 15, 2012 in an abandoned factory in California.

In a recent interview with Sonic Excess, Newsted stated about the video shoot: "It's just a simple thing, and I just wanted to capture the band. There is no heavy concept, no literal thing about bullets chasing your head or any of those things. It's old-school metal and most likely will be black and white. It was shot in an old factory. It was a gnarly, dusty, old factory and it had energy. That is what I will describe it as. I haven't got to play to the camera like that for a long time, and I was really going for it. The soldier version is something everyone will have. An HD version will be available on iTunes, but I want everyone to have it for free across the world. I want it to be the tip of the spear for everybody to see and hear what exactly it's all about."

"Soldierhead" was premiered on the December 17, 2012 edition of the "Eddie Trunk Live" show on SiriusXM satellite radio. The song comes off NEWSTED's four-song EP, entitled "Metal", which was released on January 8 exclusively via iTunes. The EP will be made available as a physical CD on January 15.

"Metal" contains the following tracks:

* Soldierhead
* Godsnake
* King Of The Underdogs
* Skyscraper

By purchasing all four songs, you will receive a copy of Jason's handwritten lyrics.

NEWSTED is:

Jason Newsted - Bass, Lead Vocals
Jesus Mendez Jr. (THE NAPOLEON BLOWNAPARTS) - Drums
Jessie Farnsworth - Guitar, Backing Voice

O ANTHRAX anunciou Jon Donais, do SHADOWS FALL, como guitarrista para as próximas datas ao-vivo da banda, na vaga deixada por Rob Caggiano. Donais assumirá o posto para os shows na Índia, para os festivais Soundwave Festival na Austrália, e para os shows da North American Metal Alliance Tour.

"Jon é um brother e também um completo rasgador," disse Scott Ian. "Eu trabalhei com ele em duas oportunidades em projetos paralelos e ele arrasa. Estou animado de tê-lo do meu lado botando fogo no palco. com o anthrax. 2013 vai ser um bom ano."

"Eu cresci com o Anthrax, eles são a cena thrash, eles são um dos Big Four, eu seria louco se não quisesse tocar com eles." disse Donais. "Primeiro Rob me ligou e disse que estava deixando a banda, e perguntou se eu estava interessado na vaga. Depois Scott me ligou e tudo se ajustou.

Eu também tenho de agradecer a minha banda, Brian, Matt, Jason e Ed - que apoiaram incrivelmente e me encorajaram a fazer isso."

Souvenirs\\ IRON MAIDEN: Model Replica Of Plane Used On 2009 'Somewhere Back In Time' Tour Available


ModelBuffs, a one-stop factory source for handmade museum quality wood model airplanes and wooden helicopter models, hasd released a replica of IRON MAIDEN's Boeing 757-200 Astraeus which was used for the band's 2009 "Somewhere Back In Time World Tour".

Statistics:

Body Length - 17.00 inches (43.20 cm)
Span - 13.70 inches (34.80 cm)
Height - 4.90 inches (12.40 cm)
Scale - 1:110

Says Modelbuffs: "The scale model aircraft exhibits unique, unrivalled quality and detailed design to come as close as possible to the accuracy of the actual plane. It comes standard with a robust , durable base or stand which is available in a variety of different finishes designed to match your own personal requirements including solid wood, wood with polished chrome steel supports or adjustable wood wall mount and will be ready within about eight weeks from placement of order.

"The Boeing 757-200 Astraeus IRON MAIDEN model airplane is made of the finest kiln dried renewable mahogany wood (commonly known as Lauan or Meranti) which has undergone many stages of carving and meticulous and careful sanding giving the beautiful finished museum quality masterpiece.

"Many collectors and model connoisseurs demonstrate their preference for genuine handmade and hand painted mahogany wood models rather than plastic, resin or die cast (diecast) alternatives due to the overall look and totally different feel of the item. Our craftsmen and gifted artisans ensure that our finely handcrafted model airplanes match the precise blueprint details of the original aircraft. The Boeing 757-200 Astraeus IRON MAIDEN model aircrafts paint scheme, markings and parts are closely matched, reflecting the original Boeing 757-200 Astraeus IRON MAIDEN.

CIRCLE PIT \\ ASKING ALEXANDRIA Guitarist Says New Album Sounds Like Mix Of 'Old SLIPKNOT' And MÖTLEY CRÜE


British metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA has completed work on its third album with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EMMURE) at the Foundation Recording Studios in Indiana and NRG in Hollywood for an early 2013 release via Sumerian Records. Guitarist Ben Bruce confirmed to GuitarWorld.com that, as previously reported, the sound of the material falls somewhere between SLIPKNOT and MÖTLEY CRÜE. "There's a lot of heavy riffage on this record, whereas in the past we relied more on rhythms and breakdowns," he said. "So in that respect it's very much like old SLIPKNOT. But then the choruses and a lot of the bridges are more rock-based, which is our MÖTLEY CRÜE side."

Bruce was quick to add, however: "The album is by no means a regurgitation of the Eighties. If kids buy this record thinking it's going to sound like [MÖTLEY CRÜE's 1987 effort] 'Girls, Girls, Girls', it doesn't fucking sound like 'Girls, Girls, Girls'. It sounds like ASKING ALEXANDRIA."

Bruce previously told Billboard.com that that the follow-up to 2011's "Reckless & Relentless" will contain 13-15 songs, six of which will be "radio-friendly" while the rest will be "our usual balls-to-the-wall kind of stuff."

Regarding the lyrical direction of ASKING ALEXANDRIA's new material, Bruce told GuitarWorld.com: "It's a lot more mature than anything we've done before. It's not so much about partying and fucking random girls and doing drugs and stuff. We've actually taken the time to write something that's truly meaningful to us. The last two records were great, and we loved them, but we were different people then. We were a lot younger and had less experience. When you compare the albums, it will definitely show how much we've grown."

2012 foi um ano para se lembrar para o ASIA, com o lançamento o aclamado álbum “XXX” [Triplo X], marcando o 30º aniversário da banda, mas 2013 também parece ter sua importância.

Premiere\\ T&N: 'Slave To The Empire' Video Released


"Slave To The Empire", the new video from T&N (formerly TOOTH AND NAIL), the new project featuring current and former members of DOKKEN, can be seen below. The song is the title track of the band's debut album, which contains seven new original songs and five re-recorded classic DOKKEN songs that feature sensational vocal performances by Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, DIO DISCIPLES), Doug Pinnick (KING'S X), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW) and Robert Mason (WARRANT, LYNCH MOB). The drum tracks on the new, original compositions were laid down by Brian Tichy (WHITESNAKE, FOREIGNER).

"Slave To The Empire" track listing:

01. Slave To The Empire
02. Sweet Unknown
03. Tooth And Nail (feat. Doug Pinnick)
04. It's Not Love (feat. Robert Mason)
05. Rhythm Of The Soul
06. When Eagles Die
07. Into The Fire (Jeff Pilson)
08. Alone Again (feat. Sebastian Bach)
09. Mind Control
10. Kiss Of Death (feat. Tim "Ripper" Owens)
11. Jesus Train
12. Access Denied

Last year, T&N was forced to shorten its name from TOOTH AND NAIL for legal reasons. The band stated, "We cannot keep [the name] as TOOTH AND NAIL as there is a label that has it trademarked. [Fans] can still call us TO$%H AND NA$L... We can't."

Regarding how T&N came together, Pilson said in an August 2011 interview, "The DOKKEN [original lineup] reunion has been scrapped, and I take a lot of the initial responsibility for that because of my schedule and commitment to FOREIGNER. . . Then George asked me about working with him on the next LYNCH MOB record — and I jumped at the chance. He and I started writing, got into a groove and wrote an album's worth of stuff, all with the intention of Oni [Logan, LYNCH MOB singer] writing lyrics and it being their next record. Brian Tichy laid down some incredible drums at his studio (and co-wrote some music on one track) and we had an incredibly strong start. Then Oni just wasn't feeling the music as being LYNCH MOB, so it was shelved. We figured it'd be the start of another LYNCH/PILSON record some day. Then, actually, it was Brian who had the idea that Mick, George and I should do a band, similar to what HEAVEN & HELL was to BLACK SABBATH, and call it TOOTH AND NAIL. Because of everything else we have going, it'll be just a recording project at first, but sure sounds fun. We'd record the classics keeping true to the originals but make them fresh and organic. Then the idea of doing new songs came up, and it grew from there."

He added, "I have absolute belief that the music George and I make together (along with Brian Tichy in this case) is real and inspired, and that's what it's really all about. So out of a mess of a reunion attempt, I think we'll end up with a really fabulous record, and what could be better than that?"

When asked if T&N is basically DOKKEN without Don, Pilson said, "Don is, and will always be, the singer of DOKKEN and an invaluable part of the DOKKEN chemistry. No one ever wants to take that away or dispute it one iota. But the three of us do have time tested amazing chemistry, and because we were writers on these songs, I feel we have a lot to express. If anything I think this will be a show of respect for Don, not some kind of competition. I only hope people enjoy it in the spirit for which it's intended . . . Don't think of this as DOKKEN without Don... that's misleading. Think of it as a band with great chemistry coming up with new music that excites them, and also paying tribute to DOKKEN — music which the members all are heavily invested in emotionally."

The song comes off the band's latest CD, "The Divinity Of Purpose", whicih is available for pre-order on iTunes (in the United States and Canada). When fans pre-order the album, they'll also receive an instant download of "Put It To The Torch".

"The Divinity Of Purpose" will be released on January 29 in North America via Razor & Tie and on January 25 in Europe through Nuclear Blast. The CD was co-produced by HATEBREED, Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHADOWS FALL) and Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD), with Wilbur also handling mixing duties. The cover artwork was created and illustrated by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, SIGH, ANACRUSIS, GWAR) and can be seen below.

Regarding the musical direction of the new HATEBREED material, singer Jamey Jasta told "Maximum Threshold", "We did enough experimenting, I think, on the last record… A lot of people really liked that record and it did gain us a lot of new fans, but on this record, with the 10-year anniversary of [HATEBREED's 2002 album] 'Perseverance' and with Wayne [Lozinak, guitar] being back in the band — this will be his second record with us — it's just fun to kind of keep with the old-school influences. I hear more CRO-MAGS and KILLING TIME and SHEER TERROR and OBITUARY and BOLT THROWER and SLAYER and ENTOMBED and those kind of '80s and '90s influences in there. Which is fun for us, because we emulate the bands that we love. We try to make it our own sound and make it our own style, but at the end of the day, we're just fans of those styles of bands."

"The Divinity Of Purpose" will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2014.

SEFOTEU\\ It's Official: BLEEDING THROUGH To Disband


It's official: California metallers BLEEDING THROUGH are calling it a day. Prior to going their separate ways, they will embark on one final tour spanning North America, Europe and Australia.

The Orange County band began 14 years ago, embarking on countless international tours, inspiring multiple logo/lyric tattoos on rabid supporters, releasing no less than seven studio albums and two DVDs and changing the face of heavy music alongside the rest of the NWOAHM (New Wave Of American Heavy Metal).

BLEEDING THROUGH participated in two Ozzfests, Vans Warped Tour, MTV2's Headbanger's Ball Tour, Australia's Soundwave festival, Europe's Never Say Die! and more. They've supported bands like SLAYER, MARILYN MANSON, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, AFI, HIM and MACHINE HEAD. Over the years, they headlined the Strhess Tour and other package tours. Their U.S. headlining trek in support of "The Truth" featured support from EVERY TIME I DIE, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and HASTE THE DAY and sold out two nights back to back at the Anaheim House Of Blues.

BLEEDING THROUGH has been featured on the cover of magazines like Outburn and Metal Edge. Alternative Press included their albums in "Most Anticipated" lists and Revolver twice featured keyboardist Marta Peterson on the cover of their "Hottest Chicks in Metal" issues.

The band's breakthrough album, "This is Love, This is Murderous", sold close to 150,000 copies in the U.S. alone. The follow-up CD, "The Truth", sold over 17,000 copies in its first week of releae in January 2006. They worked with producers Ulrich Wild (STATIC-X), Rob Caggiano (ANTHRAX), Devin Townsend (MISERY SIGNALS, GWAR, LAMB OF GOD) and Chris "Zeuss" Harris (MUNICIPAL WASTE) over the years.

BLEEDING THROUGH began as a side-project for then-EIGHTEEN VISIONS guitarist Brandan Schieppati, whose lyrics and persona remained the consistent voice through the band's evolving lineup. "Dust To Ashes" was issued by Prime Directive in 2001. Brian Leppke (guitar) and Derek Youngsma (drums) joined for the following year's "Portrait Of The Goddess" on Indecision. Ryan Wombacher (bass) and Peterson had come onboard by the time "This Is Love..." was issued in 2003. Lead guitarist Scott Danough was the last founding member (aside from Schieppati) to part ways with the band sometime after the release of "The Truth". Dave Nassie (ex-NO USE FOR A NAME) contributed a guest solo to 2008's "Declaration" and was an official member by the time the band released their 2010 self-titled album on Rise Records. Last year, Rise released "The Great Fire".

"This is Love..." and "The Truth" were released internationally through Roadrunner. "Declaration" was issued overseas by Nuclear Blast. In North America, those albums were handled by Trustkill. BLEEDING THROUGH's struggles with Trustkill Records became public in 2008. Trustkill eventually filed for bankruptcy, reportedly owing significant sums to BLEEDING THROUGH, THROWDOWN and other bands.

Through it all, BLEEDING THROUGH always relied on their fans, who often shared stories with how much their music had helped them, in turn.

In an exclusive statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Schieppati had this to say regarding the band's decision to wrap things up with BLEEDING THROUGH with final tours in 2013:

"When you have some success doing something that you love, you never really think about writing a statement about that something coming to an end. Well, that dream that we have had as BLEEDING THROUGH has come to an end.

"I think I can speak for the rest of my bandmates in saying that we always hoped it would end on our terms, and it has.

"We have been fortunate to have a strong fan base worldwide and have brought joy to many and pissed off many more.

"BLEEDING THROUGH was always a band that wore the emotion of the music on our sleeves. We cared about everyone like family that ever took the time to listen to our band, support our merchandise and go to our shows.

"Since 1999, we have been blessed to be able to tour the world, record seven records with some great musical minds, tour with amazing bands and people, work with people with character such as management, booking agents and road crew. Most importantly, we made lasting friends from this journey.

"We have been honored to be part of a expanding the musical movement of heavy music and hope to be remembered as a benchmark and pioneer of a specific style of music.

"We have been a band since 1999, and many of us just had life catch up with us in the way of marriages, kids, businesses and other endeavors. We can no longer dedicate what we need to to keep BLEEDING THROUGH going.

"Personally, I feel doing this band in a part-time fashion is not what this band is about and and feel like we have always been an all-or-nothing band. With that being said, and because we have established a worldwide following over the last 14 years, we want to give us and those people one more chance to share in this music together. We are setting up farewell tours. Dates will be up and promoted very soon.

"To those who supported this band: It has been an honor."

The other members of BLEEDING THROUGH will issue personal letters via social-networking sites as well, so stay tuned.

SEFOTEU\\ Guitarrista Rob Caggiano anuncia saída do Anthrax

O guitarrista da banda Anthrax, Rob Cagianno, anunciou sua saída da banda de thrash metal após nove anos com o grupo. Rob disse que deixou a banda amistosamente e quer focar em outros projetos, principalmente na produção de outras bandas. As informações são do site Hollywood Reporter.
Rob Cagianno entrou no Anthrax em 2001 e ficou até 2005. Em 2007, o músico retornou a trabalhar com o grupo e permaneceu até o começo deste ano. Em um comunicado, Cagianno disse que está "extremamente orgulhoso do tempo que passou com a banda".

"Esta é uma decisão extremamente difícil e emocional para mim, mas meu coração quer ir em uma direção diferente agora. Sempre segui meu coração em tudo o que eu faço e, enquanto isso pode ser um dos decisões mais difíceis da minha vida, parece ser o caminho certo para mim neste momento".

"Scott Ian, Charlie Benante, Joey Belladonna, Frankie e John Bush sempre serão parte da minha família e esta decisão não muda a forma como me sinto sobre eles. Gostaria também de agradecer a todos os fãs incríveis que eu já conheci em todo o mundo ao longo dos anos. Vocês sempre foram e sempre serão o razão pela qual eu faço música! Nos dias de hoje e com a minha idade, ser um músico nem sempre é fácil, mas os fãs realmente fazer valer a pena para mim. Espero ver todos e cada um de vocês de novo muito em breve".

O Anthrax está se preparando para uma nova turnê para 2013 e será a principal atração do festival Metal Alliance Tour junto com o Exodus. A banda foi nomeada para um Grammy este ano na categoria de Melhor Performance de Hard Rock ou Metal com a música "I'm Alive" e está "considerando muitas opções de peso para substituir Cagianno".

O grupo também afirmou em um comunicado oficial em seu site que a saída do guitarrista foi amigável.

"Rob tem sido parte integrante do Anthrax por tantos anos como nosso guitarrista, em sua capacidade de produção, mas acima de tudo, como nosso amigo próximo. Suas contribuições para a banda tem sido enormes. Enquanto estamos tristes que ele está saindo, nós desejamos a ele muito sucesso".
