The release of Halestorm’s “The Strange Case of…” is inching closer and closer, and when the set arrives on April 10, singer Lzzy Hale says to expect something unlike anything that Halestorm have spit out before. Speaking with the Pulse of Radio (via Blabbermouth), Hale explained that fans are “going to be hearing and tasting a lot of different sides of Halestorm” on the album.
Dark New Day’s latest full-length, ‘New Tradition,’ packs a variety of hard-hitting rock sounds. That having been said, it’s no surprise that band members have a wide range of musical tastes and influences — and that breadth really came out when the guys recently rattled off their top five albums that changed their lives.
The first time most of us heard about Mark Tremonti, he was heading up post-grunge behemoths Creed, touring the country and playing bread-and-butter rock hits such as ‘My Own Prison,’ ‘Torn’ and ‘What’s This Life For?’ That was in the late-‘90s and early-‘00s, and Creed have since gone on to become multiplatinum rock sensations.
Heavy metallers Mastodon head out on the ‘Heritage Hunter’ tour tonight (April 4) — a massive, co-headlining trek across the country with fellow hard-hitting act Opeth. Mastodon are touring in support of their current release, ‘The Hunter,’ and when it comes to the music that made it onto the album, guitarist Bill Kelliher describes it as “kind of a rebirth.”
Vancouver, British Columbia-based hard rock quartet the Veer Union first grabbed the attention of the rock community with their 2009 radio hit, ‘Seasons.’ Now, the gentlemen are back with a new album, ‘Divide the Blackened Sky,’ and the disc is jam-packed with fast, hard riffing and lead singer Crispin Earl’s always-soulful vocals.
Listening to the band’s latest, unmistakably brutal self-titled album, it’s obvious the guys are Corrosion of Conformity — but it certainly doesn’t sound like their past work. As it turns out, guitarist Woody Weatherman says the band were completely spontaneous when recording, and what came out was a set of songs that fits into the next generation of Corrosion of Conformity’s sound.
Lacuna Coil are big into Social Networking, but it’s not all about getting publicity. As frontwoman Cristina Scabbia explains, the Italian heavy metal group love connecting with fans over Facebook and Twitter, and it enables them to take listeners inside the Lacuna Coil camp and show fans what they’d likely never see onstage.
Las Vegas hard rockers Adelitas Way know how to make a rock hit. Just look at the band’s lengthy list of chart-topping songs, from ‘Sick’ to ‘The Collapse’ to ‘Invincible.’ The band is set to play the 2012 Avalanche Tour, which kicks off this Tuesday (March 27) in Anaheim, Calif., and singer Rick DeJesus says playing the tour alongside Shinedown, New Medicine and Art of Dying is a sign that the band is coming full circle.
Alternative metal bigwigs Korn are taking their heavy sounds to Europe right now, before they head back to the States to kick off the second leg of their massively successful The Path of Totality tour. While playing a gig in Italy, guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer offered up some thoughts about the band’s current full-length, ‘The Path of Totality,’ and how the band took chances on this set by incorporating dubstep into the mix.
