In a brand new interview with Sick Drummer Magazine, legendary BLACK SABBATH drummer Bill Ward spoke about his current and upcoming recording projects. “I think the soonest [people will hear me on a new record] is probably on an album we are trying to finish right now. We’re in the final mix and some of the tracks are mastered. It’s an album called ‘Accountable Beasts’ and I’ve been working on and off with it for about five years. I play seven or eight of the drum tracks on it, have put a lot of really hard work into it and I wrote most of the material. I am quite pleased with the amount of work I’ve put into the album to date and I’m hoping it will come out at some point in the near future. I can’t say definitely, but I can say that we are working on the final mix and I kind of have a goal behind that, which is let’s get this thing finished and mixed as soon as possible. We are working on that right now, in fact this very day, to go into the studio and so on and so forth. Setting up our dates, studying my mix sheets, and working out final overdubs if any need to be done. We have some of the material which is already what I like to call ‘master-mixed,’ it’s board mixed and we don’t need to touch it, it just goes to mastering. There’s nine songs on the record, I believe, so that would be the first time you’d get to hear me drumming again, at least at this point. We have other projects that are going on as well, but it’s a bit too early to tell yet.”

Asked if he also wrote most of guitar parts for the album, Ward said: “Yes. Well, I don’t play guitar but what allows me to be able to work with guitar is that I have an incredible guitar player. He’s so open-minded that when I take my keyboard notes to him, I’ll just play a little bit of the melodies and such. I love working with melodies and I can work out a lot of the different parts, so when I do that my lead guitar player is extremely amicable. We put our egos outside the door and it’s like… OK! let me see what we can achieve here. Let me see if I can produce these things you’re trying to get at. It’s a very good working arrangement and he sounds absolutely great on the record, he’s fuckin’ rock and rolling! I mean, it’s really good! I obviously like it and I hope everybody else will, but it’s definitely a good piece of work.”

Ward claimed that he sat out the current BLACK SABBATH reunion because of unfair contractual terms, although the members of SABBATH have hinted in other interviews that he wasn’t physically up to the task.

Ward was on board for the reunion when it was first announced in November 2011, but backed out soon after.

SABBATH has used Ozzy‘s regular touring drummer Tommy Clufetos since then for live work. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE‘s Brad Wilk laid down the drum tracks on SABBATH‘s new album, “13”, which came out June 11.

Shockwave Magazine conducted an interview with ROB ZOMBIE/ex-MARILYN MANSON drummer Ginger Fish (real name: Kenneth Robert Wilson) during the recently completed Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. You can now watch the chat below.

Rob Zombie‘s fifth album, “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, sold 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on April 23 via Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette, who has previously worked with everyone from BLACK SABBATH and ALICE COOPER to WILSON PHILLIPS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.

Zombie told Artist Direct in an interview that “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” could one day make it to the big screen as a Zombie-directed film. The rocker and filmmaker explained, “I think it could. I made it with that in mind. At least in my mind — no one else knows this — I wanted to have a storyline that runs through the record so if someday I wanted to make it into a movie musical like THE WHO‘s ‘Tommy’ or ‘Quadrophenia’, there was a structure to follow. I’m not really talking about what it is because I think it’s sort of relevant at this point.”
