Pretty good stuff, huh?

Elsewhere in the mag, we bring you the last ever HIM interview with frontman Ville Valo, Watain’s Erik Danielsson invites us to sink a few drinks with him, and we unveil a colossal 101 Reasons 2018 Will Rock. Also, we have a huge track-by-track interview with Marmozets ahead of the release of their new album, and we remember Lemmy two years on from his passing.

Also, Creeper bid farewell to Eternity, In Your Arms with their biggest headline shows to date. It’s epic, life-affirming stuff. On top of that, Marilyn Manson invites his famous actor buddy onstage in London (you might have heard of him), and Mastodon bring the heavy to, er, Wolverhampton.

Then there’s a Slipknot and Foo Fighters special! Enjoy through-the-years snaps and some lovely newbies of the two K! favourites.

All this and more is on sale from the shops and online through Newsstand on Wednesday, January 3.
