They’re big. They’re bad. They’re back. They’re LAMB OF Oh My Fucking GOD. Find out more about the incredible free Bloodstock calendar, plus Metallica, KISS, Motley Crue, Testament, ZAKK WYLDE and much, much more!
Ladies, stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen. LAMB OF GOD are back, and with new album ‘Resolution’, they’ve reminded us once again why there is no one who can make us bang our fucking heads like they can. In their ferocious new issue, LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe takes on the haters with all the bile-fuelled venom we know and love him for, as he and the rest of the band talk in depth about the effect that the internet – and the keyboard warriors it has produced – has had on the music industry, human relations and even society itself.
LAMB OF GOD might well be packing the first great album of 2012, but for now, it’s also time to look back at what has been an incredible year for metal with the Metal Hammer 2011 CRITICS’ POLL! They polled the finest minds in our field to bring you the definitive end-of-year list for a twelve-month face-melter that brought the likes of ‘Unto The Locust’, ‘Worship Music’, ‘The Hunter’, ‘Five Serpent’s Teeth’ and so much more. Who made it to album of the year? You know there’s only one way to find out…
Not bad, right? Well, there’s a hell of a lot more. As well as LAMB OF GOD and that beast of a poll, Metal Hammer are still packing more heavyweights than a WWE orgy! There’s a feature with KISS legend, GENE SIMMONS, who discusses God, groupies and settling down with his new wife. ZAKK WYLDE chats with new JUDAS PRIEST shredder Richie Faulkner about life as “the new guy” in one of the biggest metal bands of all time – something Zakk once knew all too well about. AND on top of that, there is a review from the explosive live show from WITHIN TEMPTATION.
