MEGADETH played its first show with drummer Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK) on Friday, May 20 at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

MEGADETH recruited Verbeuren to play drums for the band while Chris Adler is busy touring with LAMB OF GOD.

Adler played drums on MEGADETH's latest album, "Dystopia", and has taken part in most of the band's live shows in support of the CD so far. On those shows where Adler was unable to play with MEGADETH, he was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE), the veteran extreme-metal skinsman who has worked as MEGADETH's drum tech since 2011. However, going forward, MEGADETH will utilize the services of Verbeuren, the 40-year-old Belgian-born-and-now-Los-Angeles-based drummer who has been playing with SOILWORK since 2005.

Verbeuren was recommended for the MEGADETH job by Adler, who called Dirk "probably [one of the] top three drummers in the world." Chris told Banger TV's "Lock Horns" how the connection came about. "MEGADETH is on tour now doing a couple of festivals same festivals that LAMB OF GOD is," he said. "We tried as much as we could with all the promoters and all the festivals to have us coincide and play on the same day. I've done double duty with LAMB and MEGADETH across the U.K. and just done five shows with them along this tour that we're currently on right now, because we were able to collide and make those things happen. As we go in different reactions and play different things, MEGADETH has a drummer to be able to play those shows. Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman] would certainly prefer to have me there, and I love playing with those guys and I would love to be there, but obviously I cannot be in two places at once."

He continued: "Dave asked me He said, 'As we're doing this, and if you're not able to be there I understand you wanna fulfill your commitment with LAMB OF GOD. And we're planning on going over to Europe while LAMB OF GOD is still touring. Help me find Who would you want to drum for us?' And I said, 'First of all, the drum tech you currently have, Tony, who was the drummer for DIMMU BORGIR and ANGELCORPSE, [he's an] amazing drummer, so you have someone on staff that can easily do this.' But then he asked, 'Well, if there was someone out there that you would personally recommend, personality-wise and playing-wise?' And [Dirk] just began the job today."

While Verbeuren is playing with MEGADETH, his seat in SOILWORK will be occupied by Bastian Thusgaard of THE ARCANE ORDER.

MEGADETH's current lineup is rounded out by longtime bassist David Ellefson and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA.

MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell's ALL STARR BAND played at 013 in Tilburg, The Netherlands on April 29. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

ALL STARR BAND features Phil alongside his three sons: Todd, his eldest, and Dane from STRAIGHT LINES; and Tyler from THE PEOPLE THE POET.

"It's good to play gigs in new places," Phil told Birmingham Mail.

"We play great shows in large venues and we play great shows in smaller venues," he added. "I love the smaller shows, personally. It makes a nice change, for sure."

ALL STARR BAND's setlist is full of classic MOTÖRHEAD songs infused with covers of some of Phil's favorite bands, including BLACK SABBATH.

Asked what fans can expect when they see ALL STARR BAND, Campbell told Birmingham Mail: "It's a party atmosphere. You can expect good quality cover songs from a great band with a great singer. There [are] some MOTÖRHEAD songs, some other classics, and [it is] a great experience for everyone."

According to Phil, the ALL STARR BAND is looking to enter the studio in the coming months to record some of its own music. "We've been writing original material and, hopefully, there will be some concrete plans on that front for the future," he said.

Phil Campbell was the lead guitarist in MOTÖRHEAD for more than 30 years.

Key acts among its roster included Grave Digger, Hellhammer (who became Celtic Frost), Kreator, Running Wild, Gamma Ray, Kamelot, Tankard and Helloween, whose second and third albums Keeper Of The Seven Keys: Part 1 and Part II achieved worldwide success in the late '80s.

The new Kamelot compilation Where I Reign: Very Best Of The Noise Years has been released and is now available via Amazon Germany and iTunes.

The track list is as follows:

CD 1

"Black Tower"    
"Call Of The Sea"

CD 2

"The Fourth Legacy"

"We Three Kings"
"We Are Not Seperate"

Kamelot recently released a music video for the track “My Therapy”, taken from their latest masterpiece Haven (2015, Napalm Records/Universal/ADA/Warner). The “My Therapy” video serves to put a spotlight on social anxiety that effects up to 20% of adults worldwide.

Kamelot vocalist Tommy Karevik states: "The original idea of the song was based on experiments done years ago on children where they would be clinically taken care of, but never held, loved or nurtured. The outcome was disastrous and proves that in this sometimes complicated world spinning faster and faster, the very foundation of our health and well being really rests upon something very simple and uncomplicated... The human touch...."

Haven sees Kamelot striving for new heights with their epic and highly emotional trademark sound: As if this album was meant to be a soundtrack for an unforgettable and monumental silver screen experience, it boasts dark melancholy, aggressive metal and soul-soothing melodies.  

Kamelot is:

Thomas Youngblood - guitars
Tommy Karevik - vocals
Casey Grillo - drums
Oliver Palotai - keyboards

COREY TAYLOR On Whether N.W.A. Belongs In ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME: 'You're Goddamn Right They Do'

SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR singer Corey Taylor was asked by Loudwire Nights for his opinion on recent comments Gene Simmons made about the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inducting rap artists. He responded (see video below): "I see what Gene's saying, and, you know, I'm old-school guy as well; I get it. But at the same time, the more I look at what N.W.A. did, man, I mean, they influenced me, and I'm a rock and roll guy. So how do they not deserve to be in there? To me, bands like that, bands like RUND.M.C., it's a different type of band, but it's a band, man. I mean, that's straight up. So I can see both sides of it."

He continued: "I have bigger problems with the Hall Of Fame than some of the people who have gone in. Mine has more to do with the fact that until this year, CHEAP TRICK and DEEP PURPLE weren't in. That, to me, is disrespectful on a whole other level. Does N.W.A. deserve to be in. You're goddamn right they do. But did CHEAP TRICK and DEEP PURPLE deserve to be in years before they got in? You're damn right they did. So that whole organization needs to figure out who they're gonna honor and when, because there are still bands right now who aren't in that should be."

Simmons originally took issue with hip-hop acts and other non-rock artists being inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame during a 2014 interview with He stated at the time: "It's really back-room politics, like Boss Tweed. A few people decide what's in and what's not. And the masses just scratch their heads. You've got Grandmaster Flash in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame? RUN-D.M.C. in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame? You're killing me! That doesn't mean those aren't good artists. But they don't play guitar. They sample and they talk. Not even sing!"

He continued: "If you asked Donna [Summer], 'What kind of artist are you?', do you think she would say 'rock?' If you asked Madonna, 'What kind of artist are you?' do you think she would say, 'Oh, rock!' So what they hell are they doing in the Hall Of Fame? They can run their organization any way they'd like, but it ain't rock! It just isn't! If you don't play guitar and you don't write your own songs, you don't belong there."

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the KISS bassist/vocalist predicted that rap would soon die out, and he'll be the first one to dance on its grave.

"Rap will die. Next year, ten years from now, at some point, and then something else will come along," he told the magazine. "And all that is good and healthy. I am looking forward to the death of rap. I'm looking forward to music coming back to lyrics and melody, instead of just talking. A song, as far as I'm concerned, is by definition lyric and melody, or just melody."

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS members Dean (guitar) and Robert DeLeo (bass) discussed the band's vocalist search in a new interview with Rolling Stone. "We've been neck-deep in the process of auditioning different singers, and we've got some guys we like, and that process will continue," Dean said.

"We're looking for somebody that fills a lot of criteria man, woman. Like I said, there's a couple of people we really dig, and we have some more coming in."

Robert added: "Look, we're not trying to replace It's impossible to replace [late STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer] Scott [Weiland]; it really is. We created something that only the four of us could create, and moreso it's about moving forward, but it's also about someone honoring that, and being able to get their creativity around that. So, like Dean said, there is a lot to ask of someone someone that can move this band forward."

He continued: "I enjoy still playing the songs that Dean and I wrote. I wanna continue playing those songs, and I think people still wanna hear those songs, and that's what we wanna do.

"The three of us Eric [Kretz, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS drummer], Dean and I have something that has We've been playing music half our lives, and you can't just dismiss that. It's something that I appreciate and I cherish in my life, and I wanna continue doing that."

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS earlier in the month shot down rumors that CREED frontman Scott Stapp has become their new vocalist,. The rumor was apparently semi-started by Stapp himself, who hinted in a radio interview that he had been recruited by STP as the third lead singer in the band's history. But STP tweeted a brief statement on May 2 saying, "Despite recent comments, Scott Stapp is not, nor has he ever been considered as the singer for STP."

A day later, Stapp was announced as the new singer of ART OF ANARCHY, the band which released a self-titled debut album last year that featured Weiland alongside DISTURBED bassist John Moyer and ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.

STP recently held open submissions for a new vocalist after singer Chester Bennington exited the lineup in 2015 to focus on his other band, LINKIN PARK. The band has recently held private auditions with several finalists.

Weiland, whom STP parted ways with in 2002 and again in 2013, died last December.

AEROSMITH's JOE PERRY Says New Singer Rumors Are 'Completely Untrue'

AEROSMITH guitarist Joe Perry has shot down as "completely untrue" recent reports that the band was considering bringing in a guest vocalist while Steven Tyler is busy with his solo country career.

The rumors of a new singer for AEROSMITH were revived earlier this week when guitarist Brad Whitford told Metal Rules about the possibility of a guest frontman: "Absolutely, we have considered it but whether it will happen, I don't know. I think it would be great." Asked who he thought would be a good fit, he said, "A lot of people, everybody from Myles Kennedy [ALTER BRIDGE] to Axl [Rose, GUNS N' ROSES]. [Laughs] We had a bunch of people a while ago like Sammy Hagar. It would be a lot of fun."

Earlier today, Perry released the following statement in response to the latest reports: "Any rumor out there about us looking for another singer is completely untrue. All five of us were just on the phone together talking about how excited we are to go to South America and Mexico City."

AEROSMITH's tour of South America and Mexico will run from September 29 to October 27.

Classic Rock magazine reported a few years ago that Perry had approached Paul Rodgers, Chris Cornell and Billy Idol about singing with the band, while representatives for Sammy Hagar denied that he had been offered the gig.

The rest of AEROSMITH fell out with Tyler in 2009 after a canceled tour and Tyler's stated intention to work for two years on a solo project. Tyler subsequently entered rehab for an addiction to painkillers.

Both sides maintained that Tyler never officially left AEROSMITH, and his management and attorneys threatened legal action if the band went forward with finding a new singer for touring purposes.

Asked by Metal Rules if all the turmoil with AEROSMITH ever gets old, Whitford said: "There is still a lot of turmoil and it can be frustrating. It should be easy. The whole thing started because of the music. If the focus was right there, everything would be fine, but we don't. [Laughs] Let the drivers drive and let the music happen, [and] everything will fall into place. We get caught up into a lot of silly stuff."

Former MEGADETH Drummer NICK MENZA To Launch Rhythm Hits The Wall Art Project In June; Video Streaming

Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza is releasing a debut piece of art created from rhythm. The process involves the use of drumsticks that light to craft the visuals within the artwork. To build the piece, Menza worked with SceneFour, the art team behind the medium and publishers of rhythmic works by a highly select group of legendary drummers.

Says Menza: Totally rad that my artwork is finally going to be released and I will be unveiling a piece of it on June 16, 2016, Only 100 are in the edition (all signed and numbered). The art piece is crafted from capturing rhythm and is done as part of the Art Of Drums Project from SceneFour. Get more details when you sign up and join the interest list here.

Former MEGADETH drummer Nick Menza will unveil an art collection crafted from the new medium of "rhythm-on-canvas" on June 16.

Menza has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on the collection titled "Rhythm Hits The Wall".

Says Menza: "Totally rad that my artwork is finally going to be released. Only a hundred are in the edition (all signed and numbered)."

SceneFour is the team responsible for the "Rhythm-On-Canvas" medium, having released blockbuster art collections over the last five years with a highly select group of drumming legends, including Bill Ward (BLACK SABBATH) , Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD), Mickey Hart (GRATEFUL DEAD), Jose Pasillas (INCUBUS), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER) and Frankie Banali (QUIET RIOT).

The process of creating artwork from rhythm is an extensive one that begins with the drummer utilizing a bevy of drumsticks that light in a variety of ways similar to that of a painter utilizing brushes with different colors. In the creation process, the drummer is crafting rhythms that translate visually to abstract imagery before they are brought into the SceneFour studio, manipulated meticulously, and laid to canvas.

SATYRICON - Unboxing Video Streaming For 20th Anniversary Edition Of Nemesis Divina Album

Artistically imperious, instinctively forward-thinking and remorselessly creative, Satyricon have long since earned the right to be hailed as one of black metals most important and influential bands. And now they revisit the album that raised them from underground heroes to bold contenders on the world stage the timeless and towering Nemesis Divina.

To herald the 20th anniversary of this most illustrious piece of dark art, Nemesis Divina is re-released today, May 20th, via Napalm Records, newly remastered by Satyr himself and boasting upgraded and revamped packaging worthy of an album that has had a huge and enduring impact on both the black metal scene and underground heavy music in general. Check out an unboxing video below:

Satyricon will return to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this seminal masterpiece with a never-to-be-repeated series of exclusive European shows, wherein the Norwegian trailblazers will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time.

Its not what we do and it wont happen again! avows frontman and creative mastermind Satyr. This band, as you know, is definitely not retrospective. But we started playing live in 1996. Our most groundbreaking milestone record came out in 1996. Its the only one that we still play several songs from in our set to this day so if we're ever going to do anniversary shows, do a reissue and make it a big deal, its gonna be Nemesis Divina and it has to be now.

When Satyricon released their third album in 1996, their status as one of the most significant and creatively vital bands in Norwegian black metal was already beyond dispute. But Nemesis Divina was no ordinary record or just another step along the road to infamy. Instead, this was a revolutionary and groundbreaking piece of work from a band that had suddenly hit their stride on every conceivable level. From its uniquely vibrant and impactful artwork, which broke every supposed rule in the black metal handbook with its vivid colours and refined aesthetic core, to the supremely confident and idiosyncratic songs and individual performances that heralded a newfound sophistication and a freshly incisive vision, Nemesis Divina almost single-handedly took black metal from its voluntarily shadowy and obscure origins into the glaring spotlight of the international metal scene. There are many classic albums to salute from the Norwegian scene of the early 90s and while the likes of Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor and Immortal undoubtedly share Satyricons esteemed position in the genres spectral hall of fame, it was arguably Nemesis Divina that most vigorously announced the arrival of this arcane musical phenomenon to the rest of the world, destroying the notion that black metal was an entirely self-contained and inward-looking subculture in the process. Most of all, however, Nemesis Divina showcased a band that finally had the skill and the musical intuition to back up the undeniable potency of their artistic vision. Sonically devastating and compositionally meticulous, songs like Mother North and The Dawn Of A New Age redefined what black metal was capable of, while proudly retaining the genres ageless essence and aesthetic values.

Everything expanded tenfold with Nemesis Divina, Satyr states. For most people who liked the first two records, Satyricon climbed to a whole different level on Nemesis Divina and people really started to love the band. This album has a special place in our history. Suddenly we were selling 80,000 and then 100,000 records, and those numbers were unheard of in our small part of the world. That was the record that everyone that was into this scene wanted to buy. If you say there are two stages of evolution in black metal the 80s, with Venom and Celtic Frost and Bathory, and then the 90s with the Norwegian stuff and everything followed in its wake there are, at most, a handful of albums and a handful of songs that really define modern day black metal. Nemesis Divina is definitely one of those records and Mother North is definitely one of those songs.

Nemesis Divina tracklisting:

The Dawn Of A New Age
Mother North
Du Som Hater Gud
Immortality Passion
Nemesis Divina
Transcendental Requiem Of Slaves

Album stream:

Nemesis Divina formats:

- Limited Edition Mediabook CD + extended Booklet incl. exclusive liner notes
- Limited Vinyl 1LP Gatefold + A2 Poster
- Limited Deluxe Box Set incl. Mediabook CD + 12 Picture Vinyl + 12 Slip Mat + A2 Poster

Order here.

Satyricon will then embark on a series of exclusive one-off shows, performing the record in full for the first and only time.

Its 20 years since Satyricon made its live debut as a band, and 20 years since we released Nemesis Divina, Satyr states. I thought Either we do multiple shows, re-release the album and do it properlyor we dont do it at all. So here we are. Well be performing Nemesis Divina, front to back, doing only a few exclusive shows and we look forward to sharing this unique experience with our loyal fans."

DESPISED ICON: 'Beast' Video Released

The video for "Beast", the title track of the new album from the Montreal-based deathcore act DESPISED ICON, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Jessy Fuchs of Slam Disques.

"The time has come," comments the band. "Here it is, our first single in seven years.

"We're overwhelmed by the amount of support we've been getting these past few months.

"Expect to hear more new music in the coming weeks."

"Beast" will be released on July 22. The album was produced and engineered by former guitarist Yannick St-Amand (BENEATH THE MASSACRE, NEURAXIS) and mixed/mastered by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, NEVERMORE). Artwork was created by Alexandre Goulet.

"Beast" track listing:

01. The Aftermath02. Inner Demons03. Drapeau Noir04. Bad Vibes05. Dedicated To Extinction06. Grind Forever07. Time Bomb08. One Last Martini09. Doomed10. Beast

For many extreme music fans, it may be hard to remember a time before DESPISED ICON, given the massive influence they've subsequently had on the genre. But when the group formed back in 2002 and released "Consumed By Your Poison" the same year, there was little intersection between the sounds of classic death metal and the brute force of hardcore. But DESPISED ICON were among the first to fully embrace the signatures of the traditional death metal formula combined with a relentless embrace of breakdowns, part of an emerging new sound.

Now DESPISED ICON have returned with their upcoming album titled "Beast". The genre-defining band is fully reawakened, poised to recapture the crown with the monstrous and merciless might of their potent expression. Featuring the men responsible for most of the band's now-classic death metal catalog, "Beast" is a vicious commentary on the state of the world and the state of music itself.

Extreme metallers Brujeria are currently putting the finishing touches on their fourth album release and Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut. Recently, the band released an exclusive 7" single for Record Store Day, which sold-out instantly in stores everywhere. Brujeria is offering that 7" release, which includes the songs "Viva Presidente Trump!" and "Pared De Muerte", for sale digitally.

"The song (“Viva Presidente Trump!”) was on shelf for years with no idea for vocals," states vocalist Juan Brujo. "It was gonna be an 'Anti-Castro' part II song but nothing came out of it. It just needed proper motivation to go and attach itself to someone... and Trump came thru!

"I see Trump as the white republican version of Juan Brujo circa '93. Wanting to start shit for the hell of it!!! That's why it's called "Viva Presidente Trump!" We both want same thing! So much that I want to be his running mate!!!"

"Viva Presidente Trump!" is streaming below:

Check out the visualizer teaser for "Viva Presidente Trump!":

Brujeria's current touring lineup includes Carcass frontman Jeff Walker (a.k.a. El Cynico) on bass and Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury (a.k.a. Hongo) on guitar. Brujeria's last full-length effort, "Brujerizmo", came out in 2000 via Roadrunner.

VOLBEAT: Official Lyric Video For New Song 'Seal The Deal'

The official lyric video for the song "Seal The Deal" from Danish/American rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's sixth full-length album, "Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie", which will be released on June 3 via Republic Records.

Produced by longtime collaborator Jacob Hansen and co-produced by frontman Michael Poulsen and lead guitarist Rob Caggiano, "Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie" includes a total of 13 new tracks, reflecting their signature hybrid of rock prowess, metal power, blues soul, and rockabilly swing.

On the new album, Poulsen says: "After months writing and recording, we're thrilled to finally be able to unleash 'Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie' into the world. Play it loud!"

Like the band's last effort, 2013's "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", there's a loose concept to the new disc, as Caggiano explained. "There's definitely some stuff that kind of weaves in and out of the record," he told The Pulse Of Radio. "You know, the last album was leaning heavily towards like the Western stuff and, you know, outlaws and cowboys and that kind of thing, and this is a whole different thing. There's definitely some cool characters and some voodoo stuff on this record, which I always found fascinating."

"Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie" track listing:

01. The Devil's Bleeding Crown02. Marie Laveau03. The Bliss04. The Gates of Babylon05. Let It Burn06. Black Rose07. Rebound08. Mary Jane Kelly09. Goodbye Forever10. Seal The Deal11. Battleship Chains12. You Will Know13. The Loa's Crossroad

VOLBEAT will spend most of the summer in Europe, returning in August for SEETHER's Rise Above festival in Maine on August 6, the Heavy Montreal event on August 7, and an opening slot for METALLICA at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on August 8.

VOLBEAT recently announced the addition of bassist Kaspar Boye Larsen to the group's ranks.

Kaspar was previously a member of the punk rock outfit THE HITCHCOCKS and alternative metal group THE KANDIDATE, and even went on tour with VOLBEAT as a support act in 2010.

Kaspar will make his European debut with VOLBEAT at Germany's Rock Am Ring festival on June 3.

Video: Original ANGEL Lineup Reunites On Stage For First Time In More Than 35 Years

Legendary rock group ANGEL appeared at the 2016 Vegas Rocks! Hair Metal Awards on Sunday, May 15 at the at the Eastside Cannery Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The group received the "Glam Rock Legends" award in honor of their contributions and influence in music. Accepting the award were Punky Meadows, Frank DiMino, Gregg Giuffria, Barry Brandt, and Felix Robinson. This marked the first time all surviving ANGEL bandmembers bassist Mickie Jones passed away from cancer in 2009 have been on stage together since 1980.

Formed in 1975 by Meadows and Jones in Washington D.C., ANGEL straddled the fence between the prog-rock pomp of YES and ELP, the orchestral hard pop of QUEEN, BOSTON and ELO, and the riff-heavy raunch-rock of KISS and AEROSMITH. They were discovered by KISS bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons while performing at a nightclub and were eventually signed to the same label as KISS, Casablanca.

Released in the fall of 1975, the band's self-titled debut was promoted with a number of live appearances on the great American arena circuit with the likes of AEROSMITH, BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, JOURNEY and RUSH. The group's gimmick the members were all dressed in white got them labeled the "anti-KISS" by rock critics, and their spectacular stage show was so over the top that even Simmons & Co. were said to have been inspired by it.

ANGEL started to fall apart in the early 1980s after Casablanca pulled the plug on the group due in part to disappointing album sales. In 1981, Robinson and DiMino left to pursue other projects. Meadows and Giuffria tried to keep ANGEL going and came close to landing a record deal with CBS. But it didn't pan out, and ANGEL finally disbanded.

In a 2007 interview with the Washington City Paper, Meadows said about ANGEL's demise: "If you're riding the crystal wave, it's great. If you're not, then it's not so great. You wind up getting taken in by managers and lawyers and every other thief in the business." He noted that he and his ANGEL bandmates signed away the rights to all of their songs. "Musicians don't have legal minds," he said, "and there ought to be laws protecting them."

Los Angeles’ 9ELECTRIC To Release The Damaged Ones Debut In July; “New God” Video Streaming

Los Angeles hard rock outfit 9Electric will unleash their full-length debut album, The Damaged Ones, on July 15th via Another Century.

The group is currently in the midst of a nationwide tour alongside label-mates Lacuna Coil, Butcher Babies and Painted Wives. Check out the live performance video for the track “New God” to give you a first glimpse into their music:

"We've had a more thematic approach to our videos in the past, but for a blistering track like 'New God,' a raw live show was the only way to go" says 9Electric lead singer Thunderwood, who also directed the video. "Being a band born of the new Hollywood scene, we decided to throw a farewell show for a club that was closing and we shot the video there. The power and energy tells the story here, and also offers a hint of what's to come without giving away too much about the depth and themes of our album."
9Electric are not just a product of the Hollywood scene, they are a band that helped build today's scene. They did it with a live show that is bigger than the clubs they pack, a sound that is as big as their live spectacle, and the determination to remind us all that while rock and roll is a celebration, it resonates the deepest when it has a purpose. "We are about empowerment and living with a sense of intention" Thunderwood says of the band. "Whatever you do, do it with some fucking conviction. Make something happen in your life."
The Damaged Ones is 9Electric setting their conviction to music. It is not a placebo intended to placate the masses, it is intense group therapy for the band and their fans.
"The album describes the human condition - no one is truly safe, because at some point we're all damaged" says Thunderwood, with bassist Casey DC adding "the song itself - the album's title track - is about the process of becoming damaged and how it leads to being socially ostracized, a common feeling amongst bands and fans. This song is about how we band together and become part of the rock scene as opposed to the mainstream."

SEBASTIAN BACH: Video Footage Of Philadelphia Concert

Fan-filmed video footage of Sebastian Bach's May 19 performance at Theater Of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania can be seen below.

The former SKID ROW singer's "An Evening With" tour is scheduled to end on June 3 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Bach will follow the trek with the release of his long-awaited memoir, "18 And Life On Skid Row", due this summer on Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Speaking about his decision to play two sets during the "An Evening With" tour, Bach told Billboard magazine: "My true fans that have followed for decades now know that I open with the same song and pretty much done the same set for maybe 25 years now. Not exactly the same, but there's like five or six so-called hit songs that I've got in my catalogue that everybody knows I'm going to do. And then there's the song 'Slave To The Grind', which if you try to replace that as an opener, it obliterates any other songs. [Laughs] It's just such a strong opening tune. So what that leaves me with is I've pretty much done a very similar set, but so have a lot of my favorite bands. Like, KISS does the same kind of set. Lots of bands have a certain specific number of their repertoire that they have to do every night."

He continued: "The industry has changed so much in that when I started out in music, it was all about making a new record and then going out on tours supporting that new record, and then going off the road and then coming up with another new record. I only got to do that three times exactly. That's what it was a long time ago. Now if you're lucky this isn't a bad thing, but the way the music industry is now is pretty much non-stop touring, like, all the time. Like, I don't ever stop, really. I will stop for a couple of weeks at the most, but I'm still lucky that I'm always playing shows. So I look at my schedule and thank my lucky stars I have around 40 gigs. It's just in the USA. Holy shit, dude, you're going to go to 40 shows, like that's a lot. That's a lot of cities. And I'll be damned if I'm going to go do 40 shows of the same set that I've done for 25 years."

"I always aim to write songs to which people can relate, but this time I wanted to see not only how the songs would connect lyrically, but also how theyd connect musically."

MEGADETH Recruits SOILWORK Drummer DIRK VERBEUREN For Upcoming Shows

MEGADETH has recruited Dirk Verbeuren (pictured; SOILWORK) to play drums for the band while Chris Adler is busy touring with LAMB OF GOD.

Verbeuren will make his live debut with MEGADETH later today (Friday, May 20) at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.

Adler played drums on MEGADETH's latest album, "Dystopia", and has taken part in most of the band's live shows in support of the CD so far. On those shows where Adler was unable to play with MEGADETH, he was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE), the veteran extreme-metal skinsman who has worked as MEGADETH's drum tech since 2011.

However, going forward, MEGADETH will utilize the services of Verbeuren, the 40-year-old Belgian-born drummer who has been playing with SOILWORK since 2005.

Verbeuren was recommended for the MEGADETH job by Adler, who called Dirk "probably [one of the] top three drummers in the world." Chris told Banger TV's "Lock Horns" how the connection came about. "MEGADETH is on tour now doing a couple of festivals same festivals that LAMB OF GOD is," he said. "We tried as much as we could with all the promoters and all the festivals to have us coincide and play on the same day. I've done double duty with LAMB and MEGADETH across the U.K. and just done five shows with them along this tour that we're currently on right now, because we were able to collide and make those things happen. As we go in different reactions and play different things, MEGADETH has a drummer to be able to play those shows. Dave [Mustaine, MEGADETH mainman] would certainly prefer to have me there, and I love playing with those guys and I would love to be there, but obviously I cannot be in two places at once."

He continued: "Dave asked me He said, 'As we're doing this, and if you're not able to be there I understand you wanna fulfill your commitment with LAMB OF GOD. And we're planning on going over to Europe while LAMB OF GOD is still touring. Help me find Who would you want to drum for us?' And I said, 'First of all, the drum tech you currently have, Tony, who was the drummer for DIMMU BORGIR and ANGELCORPSE, [he's an] amazing drummer, so you have someone on staff that can easily do this.' But then he asked, 'Well, if there was someone out there that you would personally recommend, personality-wise and playing-wise?' And [Dirk] just began the job today."

MEGADETH filmed a video for the song "Post American World" late last month. The track is taken from "Dystopia", which came out in January.

MEGADETH's current lineup is rounded out by longtime bassist David Ellefson and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA.

How IRON MAIDEN's 'The Book Of Souls' Stage Gets Built (Video)

British heavy metal legends IRON MAIDEN have uploaded a two-minute video in which "Mayan temple expert and Killer Krew member" Ashley Groom explains how the band's "The Book Of Souls" stage set gets built.

IRON MAIDEN guitarist Adrian Smith recently told David "Devo" Oosthuizen of South Africa's The Blacklist about the band's current setlist: "It's a balance [between the new album and the classic songs]. The thing is, with the Internet now, as soon as you play one show, everyone knows the setlist. Because the show is so theatrical, there's a lot of cues in it, so it's not like we just get up there and play and change songs every night. It's a coordinated show, so we [aren't] changing much. It's a good balance of [the classic tracks and] our favorite of the new songs, from the new album, 'cause we wanna promote the new album, 'cause we're very proud of it. As a band, as musicians, we like to be moving forward and be creative. Thats always been the biggest buzz for me."

Asked if it is ever frustrating that the fans expect MAIDEN to keep playing songs the band wrote decades ago when MAIDEN has released so many other albums since then, singer Bruce Dickinson told Noisey: "I don't mind, because the new record's really good; it stands up a hundred percent on its own. To an extent, we can always tweak the set list. We'll see how the new record goes down, we'll get some ideas from fans, what they think about it, what tracks they super super love, what tracks they'd really like to see. But I think that there's three or four, maybe five, songs off the new album which would be terrific to play live. And that's half the album, you know? That's 45 minutes!"

Regarding whether there are any songs he would never want to play live, Dickinson said: "Ah, no, it's not that there are songs that we don't necessarily like, but the one that would be the biggest problem in the context of a regular IRON MAIDEN show would certainly be 'Empire Of The Clouds', because it would be so different. On the other hand, it could be really, really cool to perhaps do it in a different context, just because it is so different, you know? Just do something special for it, but that special thing might not even be MAIDEN, you know? It could be that you just do a special event based around it. I don't know though, that's all speculation."

IRON MAIDEN's world tour, in support of the band's latest album, "The Book Of Souls", kicked off on February 24 in Sunrise, Florida (a suburb of Fort Lauderdale).

Thomas Zwijsen’s NYLON MAIDEN Post Acoustic Cover Of IRON MAIDEN’s “Powerslave”; Video

A video for “Powerslave” from Nylon Maiden’s upcoming double CD, Preserved In Time, can be seen below. Nylon Maiden is headed up by Dutch classical guitarist Thomas Zwijsen - known for his acoustic renditions of some of metal’s greatest songs and arrangements of Iron Maiden tracks.

Nylon Maiden’s Preserved In Time is due for release in June. Thomas has gained almost 10 million views on YouTube with his arrangements of Iron Maiden songs for classical guitar, making this his most anticipated album to date.

Preserved In Time promises to be Zwijsen’s ultimate Iron Maiden tribute album. It makes the classical guitar world a bit more metal by adding 16 Iron Maiden songs (and two Bruce Dickinson songs) to its repertoire.

Zwijsen’s long-time collaborator Blaze Bayley is one of the returning guest musicians on this album, performing two tracks from his Iron Maiden days, as well as a unique version of “Blood Brothers” off the Brave New World album! This is the first time Blaze performs an Iron Maiden song from the post-Blaze era. It gives Iron Maiden fans an idea of what it would have sounded like if Blaze had stayed with the band.


Disc 1
“If Eternity Should Fail”
“Stranger In A Strange Land”
“Judgement Of Heaven” (with Blaze Bayley & Anne Bakker)
“Ghost Of The Navigator”
“Powerslave” (Thomas & band)
“Burning Ambition”
“Tears Of The Dragon” (Bruce Dickinson song)
“Blood Brothers” (with Blaze Bayley)
“When The Wild Wind Blows” (Thomas & band)

Disc 2
“Afraid To Shoot Strangers”
“Como Estais Amigos” (with Blaze Bayley & Anne Bakker)
“Tears Of A Clown”
“Jerusalem” (Bruce Dickinson song)
“For The Greater Good Of God”
“Reach Out”
“Fear Of The Dark”
“Rime Of The Ancient Mariner” (Thomas & band)

Zwijsen comments; “in our attempt to choose the best track listing for the most fulfilling, surprising and complete Iron Maiden tribute album, we simply couldn't fit all the songs on a single CD, so we decided to make it a double CD this time. Many of the songs were requests from people on YouTube. If this were to be the setlist at an Iron Maiden concert, I’d be very happy!”

People who pre-order the album get some cool extras:

- Their names printed in the booklet of the album, preserved in time!
- The album signed by Thomas
- A free specially designed stainless steel Nylon Maiden dog tag.

MOTÖRHEAD - “Overkill” Video From Clean Your Clock DVD, Blu-Ray Streaming

On November 20th and 21st 2015, at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record the very last live shows ever recorded by Motörhead, following the death of leader Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister on December 28th, 2015 - four days after his 70th birthday - in Los Angeles from an extremely aggressive cancer. Titled Clean Your Clock, the live album will be released on May 27th. Check out the video for “Overkill” below:

Clean Your Clock will be available in the following formats:

* Coloured Double Vinyl in Gatefold with Pop-up Art
* Standalone Audio CD
* DVD of the show with audio CD
* BluRay of the show with audio CD
* Boxset which contains the Coloured Double Vinyl in Gatefold with Pop-Up Art (incl. Download Card), DVD of the show with audio CD in Mini-Gatefold with Pop-Up Art, Blu-ray of the show and the Motörhead Metal Pin
* A limited edition boxset will be available through the UDR shop and will contain the Motörhead Pin in Silver or Gold

They were the Kings of the Road. They lived on it. They loved it and the fans loved them!

Never was the spirit of Motörhead more alive than when they were on tour, shake, rattle and rolling audiences to within an inch of their lives thanks to that indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume. In fact, after four decades of bone-pulverizing duty, Motörhead were still enjoying sold-out gigs worldwide.

On November 20th and 21st 2015, at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record - what happened to be the very last live shows ever recorded - and Motörhead proceeded to deliver two storming sold out shows. Where there had once been almost too-fast breakneck pace, there was measured yet still thunderous rock’n’roll served up only as they could, Phil Campbell playing better and better, and Mikkey Dee elevating the art of drumming to the superlative heights which made him one of metal’s most coveted skinsmen.


“Stay Clean”
“When The Sky Comes Looking For You”
“Over The Top”
Guitar Solo”
“The Chase Is Better Than The Catch”
“Lost Woman Blues”
“Rock It”
“Doctor Rock”
“Just 'Cos You Got The Power”

Phil Campbell's All Starr Band has announced a pair of one-off gigs for this summer as well as a string of UK tour dates for November. Check out the schedule below.

For additional information and updates go to the official Facebook page for Phil Campbell's All Starr Band here.

Campbell and Motörhead bandmate Mikkey Dee will join Saxon when they headline the Swedish racing series V8 Thunder Cars final, the Lemmy 500 at Ljungbyhed on September 24th. Saxon will give the Swedish audience a full concert to honour the legendary frontman of Motörhead, Lemmy Kilmister who passed away recently. Saxon will also team up with Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell to make a one-off musical tribute to Lemmy performing some of Motörheads greatest hits.

Its going to be great to come back and see all our Swedish fans! This event is something special an unique. We have never before made a concert at a racetrack on a raceday and also to do a tribute to our long time friend and rock icon Lemmy along with Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell, says Biff Byford, the lead singer of Saxon, whose latest album Battering Ram reached #13 on the Swedish charts.

This is going to be a night to remember! Playing some of Motörheads greatest hits together with our friends Saxon is going to be a great tribute to our former friend and band member. The Lemmy 500 will go down in history as the rockiest race championship final ever!, says Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee.

The Swedish national championship racing series V8 Thunder Cars has been given the go-ahead to name its final race in honour of Lemmy the winner of the Lemmy 500 and the championship will be crowned on stage before the concert starts.

There will be no other race more prestigious to win than the Lemmy 500 in Sweden, says Alexander Graff, runner up in the championship last year and one of the favourites for the title this year.

It will be one hell of a final, a true party of rock n roll and racing mixed together. Both Saxon and Motörhead are huge here in Sweden and we will make sure the spectators will feel right at home in our paddock we are quite a rowdy but friendly bunch and definitely more rock n roll than the glamour that is so often associated with motorsports.
