The People Vs. Metallica: The Four Horsemen Face Your Burning Questions!
In their 38-year career, you’d have thought that Metallica have faced – and emphatically answered – every question that’s been asked of them. Ahead of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo’s return to the UK this month for a pair of epic stadium shows, we hand the interviewing duties over to you, the Kerrang! readers, to put that theory to the test…
Plus, there’s an exclusive ’Tallica art print inside! The band once threatened ‘Metal Up Your Ass’, but if for any strange reason that doesn’t appeal to you, how about ‘Metal On Your Walls’? This week’s killer pic, with photography from Tom Barnes, will do the trick.
Elsewhere in the mag: the K! Interview spotlight falls on Jane’s Addiction legend Perry Farrell, while we chart the story of how Weezer man Rivers Cuomo became an emo icon; Waterparks leader Awsten Knight unveils the trio’s ‘green era’ in a revealing new interview; Fall Out Boy/The Damned Things dude Joe Trohman tells us some secrets; and Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday unpacks all the songs that changed his life.
In the reviews section, spooky metallers Motionless In White pile it on but plateau on album number five, while Cave In remember Caleb Scofield on their incredible sign-off. On the live front, Neck Deep, All Time Low and more kick off festival season at Slam Dunk.
Oh yeah, and there’s also part two of our Slipknot We Are Not Your Kind poster special!
All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang!, which you can get anywhere in the world through Kerrang.Newsstand.co.uk. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, June 5 from all good newsagents.
