Something’s brewin’ in New Orleans…and it’s a goddamn monster. DOWN are back on the cover of Metal Hammer and best of all, they’re finally getting ready to unleash some new material! Metal Hammer travelled all the way to New Orleans itself to rendezvous with a Phil Anelsmo reborn and find out the truth behind the most ambitious project yet from one of the greatest supergroups of all time.
The mag are also giving away a free 2012 PREVIEW CD featuring the bands that they think will be smashing your world to bits over the coming 12 months, which includes none other than LAMB OF GOD. It all ties into their massive 2012 preview feature, with interviews from the likes of COHEED AND CAMBRIA, GOJIRA, SOULFLY and every total legend, plucky n00b and underground veteran that the mag are backing to make 2012 a memorable one. This issue of Metal Hammer also confronts the Apocalypse itself courtesy of DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara as well as looking over the latest efforts from LAMB OF GOD, reviewing the brilliant MACHINE HEAD arena tour and our epic latest instalment of DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH – featuring TRIVIUM!
