Plus, to mark the life and music of this week’s cover star, we bring you a classic Soundgarden art print, created by artist Coop. Check out more of his brilliant work at Theartofcoop.bigcartel.com.

Elsewhere in the mag, The Bronx frontman Matt Caughthran takes our career-spanning Kerrang! Interview; Can’t Swims Chris LoPorto explains how – despite seeking purpose, peace and meaning in his life – the ghosts of his past are never far from the surface; and Jordan Fish talks us through Bring Me The Horizons highly-anticipated UK tour.

Over in the reviews section, Rammsteins Richard Z Kruspe returns and goes big on album number three from side-project Emigrate, while Brit post-doom crew Ohhms get political on their killer second record. On the live front, Rolo Tomassi enrapture and explode at their biggest headline gig to date, Bullet For My Valentine defy gravity at Ally Pally, and Tonight Alive celebrate a decade of success in style.

Oh yeah, and there’s a Green Day poster special, too! Featuring a bunch of ace shots of our favourite trio.

All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, November 21 from all good newsagents.
