We've had some interesting supergroups this year like Palms and Scar the Martyr, but Teenage Time Killer is an entirely new breed… mainly because there are guest appearances from a slew of legendary musicians and only two core members. All I'm saying is that picture of Randall Blythe with Corrosion of Conformity comes into play …

Hevy Fest have released the following statement:

“Hevy was set to move venue this year and we found the perfect site! It gave us much more room, a more central / easily accessible location, more generous operating hours and it allowed us to drop the dreaded no re-entry rule. It was perfect! We were all lined up to announce our new home, when a well-hidden licensing condition was discovered that would need to be overruled for the site to host Hevy.
 
Unfortunately the appeal process would take 2 months and we didn’t want to risk a last-minute cancellation if things went sour. So, rather than pursue an alternative and keep you guys hanging even longer, we’ve decided to shelve the camping set-up until 2014 – and instead put on a load of events with the bands already booked, including a new breed of Hevy Fest at Brixton Academy.”

Killswitch Engage: back at Brixton

People who had already booked tickets for this year’s full weeked will be refunded by Ticketmaster, with tickets for the following London Hevy show going on sale this Friday (June 7) at 9am:
Hevy Fest
Sunday 4th August
Brixton Academy – London
Tickets: £28
Line-up:
Killswitch Engage (UK Exclusive)
Hatebreed (UK Exclusive)
Comeback Kid (UK Exclusive)
(Special Guests to be announced) 
Sylosis (UK Exclusive)
Evergreen Terrace (UK Exclusive)
Heights
Empress
So, no camping for Hevy this year, but come on, that’s a pretty fucking rad Brixton Academy lineup right there, right?

This is going to be fuuuuuuu-hun. We’re beyond stoked to announce that we’ve gone and landed our very own show on newly launched and exceptionally excellent rock and heavy metal station, TeamRock Radio!

Presented by our Editor-In-Chief Alexander Milas, the show will feature exclusive interviews, discussions on all the week’s heavy headlines and, most importantly, crushing anthems from undisputed legends, modern heavyweights and the new breed in equal measure.

Alexander Milas

“We’re planning the Letterman of radio programmes,” says our Milas. “Think Peel meets PBS with a David Lee Roth soundboard and you’re halfway there. We’ll be talking to artists, industry and most importantly fans to a soundtrack of unsigned and major world-­‐beating acts that make metal the firebreathing monster it is today. Horns up!”

It’s going to be huge, and we want you all in on it. To find out more about TeamRock Radio, head to the official TeamRock website.

When your mind’s eye imagines industry album playback parties, you probably think of huge mansions where gold-plated strippers, writhing around in swimming pools filled with cocaine, mingle with suited, cigar-chomping music moguls. Tonight, though, the more humble surroundings of London’s Intrepid Fox, a weathered boozer adorned with posters of Jimi Hendrix, Lemmy and other iconic characters, is a far more suitable venue for the first public airing of Breed 77’s new album, The Evil Inside. You’d be forgiven for wondering what the point of a new Breed 77 album is. This is a band named Britain’s best unsigned act for about five years – having relocated from Gibraltar – on the trot during the end of the 90s who never managed to make the step up beyond that. What can they offer Gojira and While She Sleeps fans in 2013?

Well, let’s assume this glass is half-full for a second; it would be easy for Breed 77 to go the way of Pulkas, Kill II This, Brutal Deluxe or any other of their Brit-Metal peers. They didn’t though, they dug their heels in and carried on when it would have been easier to slip out of the party unnoticed. Also, on first hearing, they’ve possibly made the best album of their career. A hook-filled slab of grunge-influenced contemporary metal, it may not be the most original piece of work you’ll hear this year but it’s a sound inferior bands have sold millions with. Bands that start with ‘G’ and end in ‘odsmack’ for example.

The band then play a short, four-song set and the songs we’ve just heard are pumped up another notch. Black Album-era Metallica riffs are dusted with their trademark flamenco guitar work and the band’s trump card, frontman Paul Isola, shows off his impressive vocal dexterity. They end with a storming cover of Alice Cooper’s Poison and tell those present that if they want to hear more they should buy tickets for their upcoming headline tour. Breed 77 have earned a second chance, so maybe you should give them one.

Vancouver, British Columbia-based Baptists is preparing for the public onslaught of debut LP “Bushcraft,” set for release in North America on February 19th via Southern Lord. Today the outfit hurls the album’s combustible second track “Think Tank Breed” onto the unsuspecting public. The high-paced snare drum attack ripping the track wide open at the first second of this brutalizing anthem sets the listener up for what unhinged and pummeling riffage in store on “Bushcraft.” Have your face renovated by “Think Tank Breed” via BrooklynVegan here or in the player available below

It’s coming. You can’t stop it. We can’t stop it. They can’t stop it. ROB ZOMBIE and MARILYN MANSON are bringing the most dangerous tour of the year to the UK, and as we discovered when we headed out to the US to get an idea of just what to expect, they aren’t taking any prisoners. We sit down with both Rob and Mazza for our explosive cover feature to talk about the madness of sharing the road together, whether the UK is ready for this package and just how big these shows are going to be. “We’ve packed everything we could possibly pack out there,” says Rob. Be afraid.

What’s that? You want some kickass freebies to go with your amazing cover feature? Fine. Be like that. How about an amazing FREE METAL V.2.0. CD, featuring some of the most incredible sounds from the new breed of heavy, including THE HAARP MACHINE, CIRCLES, HACKTIVIST, CHIMPSPANNER, THE FACELESS, THE ALGORITHM and many more.

Oh, and we’re also throwing in a FREE TESSERACT POSTER and a FREE LED ZEPPELIN POSTER. We are so damn good to you.

In keeping with the cover’s slightly monstrous cover theme, we also catch up with METALLICA legend KIRK HAMMETT to discover all about his gnarly new horror book and his amazing collection of terrifying memorabilia, as well as look at the role that the occult had to play in the evolution of heavy music – and in particular in the genesis of a little band called LED ZEPPELIN. You may have heard of them.

KISS know a thing or two about horror and stuff as well, but we guarantee that you won’t already know everything we have in our special 25 Things You Never Knew About KISS feature. Go on. Test yourself. Testing times are something that are all too familiar to DEFTONES, but, as we discovered when we jetted out to LA on the eve of their amazing new album Koi No Yokan, their amazing struggles over the past ten years have only made them stronger

SOUNDGARDEN have finally made their awesome reunion felt on these shores with an unforgettable set at Download this year and a special Shepherd’s Bush Empire show to follow it up. We talk to the Seattle grunge legends about their amazing comeback, and also sit down with fast-rising Pennsylvania metalcore crew MOTIONLESS IN WHITE as they oversee their best album yet. Seriously, it’s a step-up like you wouldn’t believe.

Want more? You’re insatiable, but WE’VE GOT MORE. We study the shocking departure of Anette Olzon from NIGTHWISH, get EVANESCENCE singer Amy Lee to take us through her record collection and get MAX CAVALERA together with his boys for a nice big family hoedown. We also get Norwegian black metal icons DIMMU BORGIR and future heavyweights EASTERN FRONT to compare makeup tips and celebrate the amazing history of one of metal’s finest innovators in OPETH.

We also hit the studio with KVELERTAK to get an update on album number 2 (get excited, basically), catch up with SHINING’s demented and brilliant frontman Nikas Kvarforth, fly out to Indonesia to hang out with BURGERKILL and bow at the riff-toting throne of THE SWORD. Oh, and there’s also appearances from DOWN, SLASH, TRIVIUM and WHILE SHE SLEEPS. Not bad, eh?

In this month’s crushingly kvlt SUBTERRANEA, titanically heavy doomsters AMENRA talk us through the gruelling, 13-year battle that has been their time together, plus dip our toes into the harrowing world of DRAGGED INTO SUNLIGHT, review new opuses from GOD SEED, THE DEVIL and DAYLIGHT DIES and celebrate that oh-so-beloved film genre of BIKER HORROR. Lovely stuff.

The new issue of Metal Hammer now. Buy it, buy it for your mate, buy it for your nan and then buy it for yourself again.

U.K. symphonic metal act Saturnian has inked a deal with Indie Recordings. The record label commented:

“2011 saw the uprising of a new breed of Extreme Symphonic Metal. Saturnian are a 5 piece from the United Kingdom, proud of a country rich in metal history and ready to usher in a new age charged with its pedigree. Saturnian was formed around one main principle – to create epic and majestic music to enchant fans of all metal genres; delivered in a grand and dramatic style that could soundtrack a blockbuster movie or theatrical performance.

“Expect razor sharp riffing, fist pounding rhythms, and a symphonic backbone worthy of the far reaches of the Universe. In true portentous British style, a rich choral explosion, soaring sopranos, and ethereal Gregorian chant round out this massive sonic explosion. This ethos comes to life in the Saturnian live experience, which in itself is a theatrical spectacle rather than a generic recital of music. Saturnian breeds an eclectic blend of voices, stunning instrumental performances, and a visual experience that will amaze, mystify and inspire!

“During the short time that Saturnian have been touring the length and breadth of the UK they also won the Bloodstock Metal to the Masses competition. This takes the band to Wacken Open Air festival in 2012, and also officially opening Bloodstock 2012!”

Upcoming Saturnian live shows are as follows:

02.08.12 Wacken Open Air, Wacken, Germany
09.08.12 Bloodstock, Swadlincote, UK

Saturnian also commented: “It is a great pleasure to announce that Saturnian have signed to Indie Recordings, a prestigious Norwegian record label. Joining the ranks of many world class Extreme Metal artists, this powerful partnership will see the release of Saturnian’s debut album in the imminent future. Keep your eyes trained and sights focused for more updates very soon…”
