Candlebox are back in full force with a new album, ‘Love Stories and Other Musings,’ and lead singer Kevin Martin says the album’s inspiration came from a very different place in his life than it did when the band first broke out in the early ’90s. He also offers a surprising list of metal acts among the bands that help inspire his songwriting.

Slash is gearing up to unchain his sophomore solo album, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ on May 22.

All in all, he kept his response positive.
Lacuna Coil‘s latest album Dark Adrenaline’ pays homage to some of the band’s biggest metal influences throughout the years. Case in point: ‘My Spirit’ off the release is dedicated to late Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele, the man whom singer Cristina Scabbia says turned her on to heavy metal music.
Metal music has changed exponentially over the years, and one thing that’s really evolved is the way people describe metal sounds.
