According to a press release, the follow-up to 2010’s “Heal” is “a monster. First, band founder and vocalist Karsten ‘Jagger’ Jäger‘s guttural signature has never sounded so intense and relentless, and the precise and bloodthirsty double-bass drums back up a colossal wall of thickly produced, face-melting guitars. Still, the band adds in a melodic flavor that never sounds obvious.” Jäger comments … Continue reading

DAVE MUSTAINE Says He Is One 'The Fantastic Four' Of Hard Rock/Metal Rhythm Guitar Players

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine believes that he is one of the best rhythm guitar players in the world — part of what he calls “the fantastic four,” alongside James Hetfield (METALLICA), Malcolm Young (AC/DC) and Rudolf Schenker (SCORPIONS).

IRON MAIDEN's BRUCE DICKINSON Compares Flying Airplanes To Performing Live

IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson, a registered commercial pilot who owns Cardiff Aviation, tells Wales Online in a new interview that he still gets a thrill out of flying, but that it’s a totally different sensation to playing live. “The satisfaction flying airplanes is getting the job done, but the satisfaction with playing live is external, looking out at all the people looking at you,” he says. “With an airliner, it’s all internal.
