from: Blabbermouth, on: Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 02:43

Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the Croatian cello duo known as 2CELLOS, have released a music video for "The Trooper (Overture)", a mashup of IRON MAIDEN's hit "The Trooper" and Gioachino Rossini's William Tell overture. In the clip, which can be seen below. the 2CELLOS star as two classical music-loving nerds who imagine themselves transformed into crowd surfing rock stars after seeing an ad for "Want To Be A Rock Star?" Sulic and Hauser of the 2CELLOS are best known for re-imagining pop and rock tunes performed on their cellos. The Croatian duo toured in Europe extensively over the summer and has upcoming tours in Russia, Australia and the U.S. Their third studio album will be released in early 2015. They have released two albums — "2Cellos" and "In2ition" — which are available on Sony Music Masterworks. They were the first instrumentalists to ever be featured on "Glee" and have also appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", "The Tonight Show" and others. They were most recently featured in "The Bachelor" live wedding special. In a recent interview with Thorium, Eicca Toppinen of Finnish cello rockers APOCALYPTICA stated about 2CELLOS: "That's kind of funny. These guys, they are talented and everything, but what has been funny also for me is to see that they are treated like they invented something. It's, like, 'c'mon, we did this 20 or 30 years ago. Where's the beef? You know. [Laughs] But I don't know why they became so big. Maybe because the time different, and there's YouTube…" APOCALYPTICA's Mikko Sirén added: "Elton John did a lot for them. I think they were supporting him. And they are great. They are talented musicians. Hats off to them." Toppinen continued: "Yeah, they are very good. No bad word about them. I think more it's funny for the media and for the people. But maybe [because we live in this] Internet time and YouTube time, [where] things spread so massively fast. It's so different than [it was] at the end of the '90s. You might get a video on MTV, in night rotation, [like] we did, but still, it's marginal [compared to the way it is today]" He continued: "I saw the [2CELLOS] video. I checked it [out] — because of the social media, these kinds of video clips, they are spread, like, in one second. Everybody is sharing it: 'Oh, this is so great. This is so great.' And I checked the video, and I was, like, 'Ahhh…' This is, like, still working on the really old-school stereotypical thinking that having this baroque style of concert audience, and then, 'We're doing something really heavy.' [Laughs] But it's great. It's a lot of fun."

GODSMACK's SULLY ERNA Announces Solo Shows

from: Blabbermouth, on: Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 02:12

GODSMACK frontman Sully Erna will play a series of solo shows this December. The trek will kick off on December 3 in Verona, New York and will conclude on December 14 in Boston, Massachusetts. Public on-sales for all the dates start this Friday, October 24. Fans will have the opportunity to buy an additional limited-edition VIP package upgrade through Erna's official web site. The package will include early entry, access to a meet-and-greet with Erna, an exclusive lithograph signed by Erna and a VIP laminate, all for $99 (not including the actual concert ticket). Erna said in a recent interview with HardDrive Radio that he intends to continue with his solo career when not recording or touring with his main band. Asked if he plans to make a follow-up to his 2010 solo debut, "Avalon", Erna replied, "I'm always working on material. I sit home, when I'm home, and the only thing I keep in my house is a drum set and acoustic guitar. I never really play electric at home. And because of that, whenever I'm noodling around, a lot of good ideas come up that are not always necessarily good for GODSMACK. So I tuck those away. So, for sure, I'll do another solo album at some point." Erna told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that he enjoys having two distinct sides to his musical output. "You know, GODSMACK, we've done some acoustic things here and there, but we really don't belong in that world so much. I mean, we're really more of a big, hard rock, powerhouse band and that's where we should be. But for me, I really love that acoustic side. I love the piano, I love that — just acoustic instruments. And so, I'm so happy that I have carved out that path now because I need to explore that kind of music." Erna also told HardDrive that his solo music can extend his career once his heavy rock days with GODSMACK are over, explaining, "With the solo stuff, I don't ever wanna have that kind of limitations, because I think it's the place I'd like to go one day, when this is all said and done, if I still wanna play music, I can sit up on stage with a piano and an acoustic and do one of those 'storytellers' kind of evenings…" "Avalon" featured a very different style than what Erna does with GODSMACK, incorporating world music, female vocals, keyboards, cello, hand percussion and other diverse sounds. GODSMACK's sixth studio album, "1000hp" (One Thousand Horsepower), was released on August 5.

VOLBEAT To Take Six Months Off Before Starting Work On Next Album

from: Blabbermouth, on: Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 01:25

SROMaginc.com conducted an interview with drummer Jon Larsen of Danish/American metal rock 'n' rollers VOLBEAT at the inaugural installment of the Louder Than Life festival, which was held on Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5 at Louisville Champions Park in Louisville, Kentucky. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On VOLBEAT's plans for a new studio album: Jon Larsen: "[There's] not really any new music in the works. I mean, we still have three weeks left of touring here in the U.S. and then we're gonna go to the UK for ten days. And after that we have six months off for the first time in two years. So we're gonna start focusing on writing new stuff. Michael [Poulsen, guitar/vocals] is already starting and planning, and having small bits and pieces. And once he's put some flesh on those bones, he and I will go to the rehearsal room and try and get [the songs] into shape and then the two other guys will come in, and we may end up with music. Who knows?" On the VOLBEAT songwriting process: Jon Larsen: "I'm kind of like the guy that Michael bounces his ideas off, back and forth, and we've done that almost ever since the beginning. It's no secret that he comes up with, let's say, 99.9 percent of all the material, but if any of the rest of us has an idea and he thinks it's good, then he will use it, of course. But he is the main songwriter. I mean, it's his band." VOLBEAT's latest effort, 2013's "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies", has sold 252,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The set features the No. 1 singles "The Hangman's Body Count" and "Lola Montez", as well as the Top 5 track "Dead But Rising" and new single "Doc Holliday". VOLBEAT's co-headlining tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH kicked off on September 16 in Salt Lake City.

IN FLAMES' ANDERS FRIDÉN: 'I Don't Aim To Become The Best Singer In The Whole World'

from: Blabbermouth, on: Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 00:33

Rockbook magazine conducted an interview with vocalist Anders Fridén of Swedish metallers IN FLAMES when the band played at Barba Negra Music Club in Budapest, Hungary on September 28, You can now watch the chat below. Asked about the changes in his vocal style over the course of the last couple of albums were made "on purpose," Anders replied: "I mean, everything is for a purpose. It's not like I have someone forcing me, saying, 'You have to do this.' Everything that is on whatever album, if I'm unhappy, I don't put it out there. But my voice is my instrument. The other guys wanna become better at their instrument. I wanna become better at my instrument. I wanna be able to use it in many different ways, I wanna paint different types of paintings. I don't wanna [use] same colors, [create] same paintings again and again and again. "When I hear the music that we write, [the songs] talk to me a certain way, and that style came out. "With this album [this year's 'Siren Charms'], I couldn't do anything else… It is right there because it has a meaning, it has a purpose." He continued: "I don't think I've changed drastically. I've been using more and more melody from album to album. And this one, for sure, is more clean than [it's] ever been, but it's still my voice. I think it's still recognizable. No one will say, 'Oh, that sounds like…' blah blah, whatever whatever. It's, like, 'I hear it's Anders.' Fridén added: "I don't aim to become the best singer in the whole world, but I feel like I have a unique style that is mine, that I control and I do it the perfect way for me. But if I were to go on 'American Idol', or whatever, I would be, like, vote off. They would say, 'Fuck no! We can't [listen to] you. You're out.' Because they only want people that are perfect, that are great. But, to me, 'perfect' and 'great' is fucking boring. You need something personal, something that speaks to you, and I think that's what I'm trying to achieve." "Siren Charms" sold around 9,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 26 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released in the U.S. on September 9 via Sony/RED, the CD was recorded at Hansa Tonstudios (DAVID BOWIE, DEPECHE MODE, U2) in Berlin, Germany. The cover artwork was created by Blake Armstrong of Space Boy Comics.

SLIPKNOT's '.5: The Gray Chapter' Headed For No. 1 On Next Week's BILLBOARD Chart

from: Blabbermouth, on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 20:17

SLIPKNOT's long-awaited fifth studio album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", is likely to sell between 100,000 and 110,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on October 21 via Roadrunner. The chart will be unveiled on Wednesday, October 29. SLIPKNOT's only competition for next week's No. 1 slot on The Billboard 200 chart appears to be Neil Diamond's "Melody Road", which is expected to shift between 70,000 and 80,000 in its first week of of release. SLIPKNOT's fourth album, 2008's "All Hope Is Gone", claimed the coveted No. 1 debut slot on the Billboard chart after an extraordinary SoundScan recount. The album was initially announced today as a No. 2 debut, a mere 13 units behind THE GAME's NO. 1 debut, marking the closest margin in SoundScan history. The chart positions resulted from a reported 238,272 copies of "All Hope Is Gone" its first week in stores, while THE GAME's "LAX" reported 238,285. With such an unprecedented margin, Roadrunner Records and WEA requested an historic recount. SoundScan obliged and chart positions were reversed, with SLIPKNOT claiming No. 1 and a new margin of 1,134 albums. Final recount numbers are 239,516 for "All Hope Is Gone" and 238,382 for "LAX" sold during first week of release. ".5: The Gray Chapter" caps a very turbulent period for the masked rockers in which they dealt with the death of Paul Gray and the firing of drummer Joey Jordison, both longtime members and songwriters. Despite it all, singer Corey Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio he's proud of what the band has accomplished this time out. "The fact that we were able to kind of pull ourselves back up and not only go in and make a really good album, but make an exceptional album, in my opinion, I think it's a testament to just how talented this band is," he said. "It's a testament to how much passion we have for it. It's a testament to how much we're willing to fight to accomplish everything that we want to accomplish. I'm excited for people to hear this, because to me I think it's one of the best albums we've ever made." Gray died in 2010 from a drug overdose, while Jordison was let go last December, just before SLIPKNOT began recording the new album. Although the identities of their replacements have not been officially revealed, they are believed to be drummer Jay Weinberg and bassist Alessandro "Vman" Venturella. Meanwhile, Taylor defended himself in a new interview with Britain's XFM Radio from accusations that he orchestrated both Jordison's dismissal from SLIPKNOT and the firing of the band's guitarist, Jim Root, from the band that Taylor and Root founded together, STONE SOUR. Taylor, calling himself "one of the most hated dudes right now," explained, "That's the burden of being the frontman. [But] I'm not the boss. Trust me. I'm not the boss in either band. It's very much a committee. I help make decisions, but I don't make decisions. But that's the perception.” SLIPKNOT will celebrate the arrival of the new disc this weekend with two headlining performances on Saturday (October 25) and Sunday (October 26) at its own Knotfest in San Bernardino, California, along with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, VOLBEAT, HELLYEAH, NOTHING MORE, ATREYU, IN THIS MOMENT, OF MICE & MEN and many more. SLIPKNOT will head out on a headlining North American tour immediately following Knotfest, with special guests KORN.

POISON Reunites For Corporate Gig, Teases Possible 2015 Tour

from: Blabbermouth, on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 20:00

Photos of POISON's first rehearsal for a performance at a private event in Southern California can be seen at BretMichaels.com. A posting on the site reads: "So far no fist fights, sounds great and feels great. Maybe a reunion in 2015…" POISON drummer Rikki Rockett recently told the "92 Minutes Of Hair With Mel" show on the Las Vegas, Nevada radio station KOMP 92.3 about rumors and speculation about a possible rift within POISON, particularly as it relates to him and singer Bret Michaels: "Actually, there's nothing wrong within the band that I'm aware of — I mean, unless something happened and nobody told me. "Sure, we're trying to put a tour together. And if we can put it together and it makes sense and we can get our crap together, we will do something. "What I was answering in one question [in a previous interview] was, 'At this moment, as I sit here, we're not contracted for a POISON tour next summer.' That's all I was saying. And it contradicted something Bret had said [in a separate interview], but not really. Bret didn't say we had a tour for sure either. He said, 'I think we're gonna probably be able to tour. And I'm not saying that we are.' He didn't commit to either. Whatever… It's fine." According to Rockett: "POISON has never disbanded. POISON will continue on as long as it makes sense. I mean, C.C. [DeVille, guitar] departed for a while and that was really the only time we weren't the original lineup. But we always will be until it just doesn't make sense anymore." Rockett told the "Iron City Rocks" podcast that POISON has been doing "corporate gigs for different companies, which are fun, and they pay very well. It gives us a chance to all get together and play. And, in fact, we have one in October and we have one in January [2015]. But they are the only shows that POISON is doing this year; we are not doing a tour this year. There is a few things that are being thrown around right now by our management for next spring, and we'll just have to see." Rockett took to Twitter in February 2014 to complain that POISON couldn't hit the road this summer because a certain member of the glam-metal act was "making it a problem." POISON last toured the U.S. in 2012 as part of the "Rock Of Ages" package with DEF LEPPARD and LITA FORD.

OPETH's MIKAEL ÅKERFELDT Says He 'Never Talked' To BILL KELLIHER, BJÖRN GELOTTE About Possible Collaboration

from: Blabbermouth, on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 18:36

OPETH vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt has shot down rumors of a possible side project with MASTODON guitarist/vocalist Bill Kelliher and IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte, explaining that he has "never talked" to the other two guys about it. Kelliher recently said that he was hopeful that the collaboration with Åkerfeldt and Gelotte would see the light of day, telling RockSverige.se: "We haven't really gotten [as] far [as writing music together] yet. It's harder than I thought it would be… [But] it is definitely a plan." Regarding how the idea for the project came about, Kelliher said: "We were on tour together, you know, and I was writing stuff and I was, like, 'Hey, how about I send you a riff,' and [I told Björn], 'You could play anything you want' and he's, like, 'Well, if you send it to me, it's going to be metal.'" Kellier added: "I could never get my riff to sound perfect, or as close to perfect as I wanted it to, to send it to him so. I stalled out on that. I've got to re-do it and try it again." But in a brand new interview with RockSverige.se, Åkerfeldt claimed that had never discussed the collaboration idea with Kelliher and Gelotte. He said: "I don't know of this. He's really cool, no doubt about it, and Björn is too, but we've never talked about this." OPETH's eleventh studio album, "Pale Communion", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart. IN FLAMES' new CD, "Siren Charms", opened with around 9,000 units in to land at No. 26. MASTODON's sixth album, "Once More 'Round The Sun", sold around 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on June 24 via Reprise Records.

ROB HALFORD Says Listening To Canadian Singer MICHAEL BUBLÉ Is 'Exciting' And 'Inspiring'

from: Blabbermouth, on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 18:05

In a recent interview with the New York Post, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford spoke about his love for Canadian singer Michael Bublé. "Even though I'm a metal singer, the fact that I’ve been able to appreciate other types of performers has probably paid dividends," Halford said. "When I listen to Michael Bublé, it's exciting, it's inspiring. I feel the same way with Michael Feinstein or Ryan Adams. I'm drawn to singers who have something different to say vocally, and Adele would be in there. I saw [Barbra] Streisand in Phoenix and that was mind-blowing. Her voice is just so pure." He added: "I've also always had a passion for some types of opera — I've got a massive Pavarotti collection. I sing 'Nessun Dorma' when I warm up backstage." Asked if PRIEST is ever going to put out the tracks the band recorded in 1988 with producers Stock Aitken Waterman, of Kylie Minogue and Rick Astley fame, Halford replied: "I personally would love to release them, but there's a different consensus within the band. "Our rendition of [THE STYLISTICS'] 'You Are Everything' is just beautiful — it's an '80s megarock ballad, with big drums, big vocals, sweeping strings. "People are a lot more open-minded now, whereas in those days it could have created a bit of push-back, maybe even some damage to our reputation." Halford recently expressed interest in collaborating with one of his current favorite artists, pop superstar Lady Gaga. He explained: "I love her just because, for a singer, she's a fucking amazing singer. And then she writes all this material. And, of course, you look at her past and she's a total metalhead. She started off strongly into rock and metal and you've seem pictures of her with Alice Cooper or Bruce [Dickinson] from [IRON] MAIDEN and all of these other people in metal; it just shows you that she's committed to that. She's just a really sincere, complete person as a musician."

OZZY OSBOURNE's 'Memoirs Of A Madman' Collection: First-Week Sales Revealed

from: Blabbermouth, on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 17:44

Ozzy Osbourne's "Memoirs Of A Madman" CD has sold 4,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 90 on The Billboard 200 chart. The collection serves as a career-spanning audio release, featuring 17 of Ozzy's greatest hit singles compiled in one place for the first time in his career. Released on October 7 via Epic Records/Legacy Recordings, it is available in a single CD, two-LP set and two-LP picture disc set configurations. The "Memoirs Of A Madman" DVD is a definitive visual two-disc DVD set which includes classic music videos, along withunreleased and out-of-print live performances, plus interviews from his solo career. Both sets offer fans of the multi-platinum recording artist, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and three-time Grammy-winning singer and songwriter hours of entertainment from Ozzy's distinguished solo career. Osbourne 's ongoing solo career spans four decades — as both a successful solo artist and as the lead singer of BLACK SABBATH — and his music is as relevant today as ever; it still resonates daily on TV, in movies, on radio and at stadium sports events. Ozzy's latest solo release — his tenth studio album, 2010's "Scream" — debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart, featuring the No. 1 Mainstream Rock smash "Let Me Hear You Scream". From the first notes of Ozzy's 1980's solo debut "Blizzard Of Ozz" and follow-up "Diary Of A Madman" to classic albums "No More Tears" and "Scream", no hard rock solo artist has had quite the same reach as Ozzy; his distinctive vocal delivery and larger than life onstage persona quickly endeared him to millions of rockers. Ozzy immediately had the attention of fans of heavy music with rock staples "Crazy Train", "Mr. Crowley" and "Flying High Again". With the 1991 release "No More Tears", Ozzy continued his radio success with acclaimed and hugely successful singles "No More Tears" and the smash hit "Mama, I'm Coming Home". The track listing is as follows: 01. Crazy Train 02. Mr. Crowley 03. Flying High Again 04. Over The Mountain 05. Bark At The Moon 06. The Ultimate Sin 07. Miracle Man 08. No More Tears (edit) 09. Mama, I'm Coming Home 10. Road To Nowhere 11. Perry Mason 12. I Just Want You 13. Gets Me Through 14. Dreamer 15. I Don't Wanna Stop 16. Life Won't Wait 17. Let Me Hear You Scream Details on the "Memoirs Of A Madman" 2-DVD set are as follows: DVD One features more than two dozen of Ozzy's classic and unforgettable music videos from across his discography, including a bonus alternate version of "Mama, I'm Coming Home" and making-of footage from the videos "Let Me Hear You Scream" and "Life Won't Wait". DVD Two features live performances and interview clips spanning Ozzy's solo journey, much of which makes its debut on DVD.

NICKELBACK's Chad Kroeger joined Sammy Hagar over the weekend to perform a cover version of the LED ZEPPELIN classic "Whole Lotta Love" during Hagar's huge birthday bash at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. Also appearing at the event were the Red Rocker's CHICKENFOOT bandmates Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith, who came up on stage to play a few CHICKENFOOT tracks with the legendary ex-VAN HALEN singer. CHICKENFOOT performed "Sexy Little Thing" from their 2009 debut and "Big Foot" from 2011's "Chickenfoot III". Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below. Hagar's first-ever acoustic album titled "Lite Roast", was released on October 14 via Mailboat Records. Joining Sammy on the CD is Vic Johnson, longtime guitarist of WABORITAS, Hagar's backup band, on guitar and vocals. NICKELBACK's new album, "No Fixed Address", arrives on November 18. Kroeger's personal life did make headlines recently when it was reported that his year-old marriage to singer Avril Lavigne was on the rocks. Kroeger has not commented officially on the rumors.
