With the Number 1 Rock Song in the country FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH unleashes their latest album with “The Wrong Side of Heaven & The Righteous Side of Hell Vol. 1”. There’s some notable guest vocalist on this disc including KC’s own TECH N9NE who also has a new disc out today with “Something Else”.
A band I thought fell off the map, BULLETS & OCTANE, have a new album out today with “15”. This is their first release since 2009’s “Laughing In The Face Of Failure”.
Blues legend BUDDY GUY has out a double-disc with “Rhythm & Blues”. He, like 5Finger, has a couple-few guest vocalist including KID ROCK.
The metal world contributing to today’s new music with SCORPIONS putting out a live blu-ray, which was filmed in 2000, with “Moment of Glory” and CHIMAIRA drops their latest, “Crown of Phantoms”.
And even though it was initially put out in 2004, it’s remixed – again – by GILBY CLARKE as well as FRED COURY with guitar overdubs by TRACII GUNS: “Roots of Guns-n-Roses” by HOLLYWOOD ROSE. This is the first demo with Axl & Izzy before they created GnR.
Other announcements made recently include a live ROB ZOMBIE DVD to-be-filmed next month in Dallas Texas on the 3rd & 4th. NIRVANA’s “In Utero” is turning 20 so that means all the bells & whistles for a deluxe reissue to be put out on the 24th of September which will house over 70 tracks on four discs. That same day we’ll also see two vinyl’s by TESTAMENT “First Strike Still Deadly” and “Live @ Eindhoven ‘83”. Keeping with metal, WARBRINGER is putting out “IV: Empire’s Collapse” on October 15th and SLIPKNOT’S JOEY JORDINSON has his debut project SCAR THE MARTYR putting out their self-titled album on the 1st of October.
