Pete Steele; “Type O Negative don’t rehearse unless we absolutely have to. I’m a firm believer in setting aside too little time for these things rather than too much, because idle hands are, of course, the work of Satan. And, boy, does she [Satan] love me.” Check out this awesome and insightful piece in full over on Metal Hammer!

In other incredible news, Metal Hammer cover stars Gojira and Swedish melodeath giants Amon Amarth complete the live lineup of this year’s Metal Hammer Golden God Awards in association with Fireball. The full live lineup, which also includes Halestorm and A Salute To Lemmy with Saxon and Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell of Motörhead, are the only UK shows for any of the bands outside of festival appearances – and tickets cost just £6.66!
The evening’s host, and holding the whole show together, is Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta. Currently on tour in America, Jasta is one of the most charismatic and engaging frontmen in the business, and is the perfect person to keep the Golden Gods’ moshpit in check! Hatebreed released their seventh album, ‘The Concrete Confessional’, on May 13 this year. Metal Hammer awarded it 8 out of 10, calling it “Unapologetic, relentlessly angry, and without a filler track to be found… exhilarating to the very last syllable.”
Taking place at the Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith, London on June 13, headlining the ceremony will be A Salute To Lemmy – a celebration of the life of one of rock’s most inspirational icons that will see Saxon joined onstage by Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell of Motörhead to play a set of classic songs from both bands. Also confirmed are Grammy Award-winners Halestorm, whose sure-to-be-incredible performance will be one of only two in the UK this year.
Gojira are one of the most exciting and innovative bands in metal. Set to release their much-anticipated sixth album, ‘Magma’, on June 17 – a follow-up to 2012’s critically acclaimed ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ – they have always pushed the boundaries and challenged their listeners with genre-defying music. The band’s sound develops with each album and their live shows are among the most captivating in the world. They start a world tour at the end of May that will take them through Europe, the US and Canada.
Viking-obsessed Amon Amarth released their 10th album, ‘Jomsviking’, in March of this year to resounding acclaim. Their first concept album, it allows the band to demonstrate the full dynamic force of their music, and shows why they are one of the world’s leading death metal bands. A live powerhouse, they are currently touring the US, and will be going on to conquer Europe in June and July. Live, Amon Amarth are like nothing else; their intensity is immense and unwavering, delivered with a power like no others.
Alexander Milas, Editor-in-Chief of Metal Hammer Magazine and TeamRock Executive Director, says, “This isn’t a bill for the faint-of-heart. From the goblet-hoisting, festival-headlining might of Amon Amarth to the peerless innovative brilliance of our latest coverstars Gojira, this is going to be a firebreathing monster of a party. Nothing but the best for the people who’ve supported Metal Hammer in all its forms for all these years. Horns up!”
