On September 18, Brian West of the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada radio station Y108 (CJXY FM) conducted an interview with legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER). You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below.

Slash will release the soundtrack album for the first-ever motion picture he has co-produced, “Nothing Left To Fear”, on October 4, the same day the film opens in select theaters. The “Nothing Left To Fear” original motion picture soundtrack was written and produced by Slash and Nick O’Toole. It includes the film score plus two original songs: “Nothing Left To Fear”, which features vocalist Myles Kennedy and the instrumental “Welcome To Stull”.

The album will be released exclusively at PledgeMusic.com, giving fans access to interviews, song streams, first looks at film art, clips and more. When fans pledge and pre-order the album, they will gain access to one-of-a-kind experiences with Slash, as well as merchandise for the film.

Due in select theaters Friday, October 4 and available on Blu-ray Combo-pack, DVD and On Demand starting Tuesday, October 8, “Nothing Left To Fear” is a harrowing tale in the spirit of the terrifying horror films of the 1970s. The movie is inspired by the legend of Stull, Kansas, which is surrounded by Internet folklore proclaiming the town to be one of the Seven Gateways to Hell. Wendy (Anne Heche), her husband Dan (James Tupper of “Revenge”) and their kids have just moved to the small town of Stull, Kansas, where Dan is the new pastor. But in this sleepy community of friendly neighbors, a horrific series of occurrences awaits them: Their teenage daughter (Rebekah Brandes of “Bellflower”) is being tormented by grisly visions. Her younger sister (Jennifer Stone of “Wizards Of Waverly Place”) has been marked for a depraved ritual. And deep within the heartland darkness, one of The Seven Gates Of Hell demands the blood of the innocent to unleash the creatures of the damned. Ethan Peck (“10 Things I Hate About You”) and Clancy Brown (“The Shawshank Redemption”) co-star in this demonic shocker featuring original music by producer Slash and inspired by the real-life paranormal legacy of Stull.

“Nothing Left To Fear” is the first film from Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Slash‘s production company Slasher Films, and was written by Jonathon W.C. Mills and directed by Anthony Leonardi III.

“As a longtime fan of the horror genre, I want to produce films that are in an older tradition of the genre,” relates Slash. “That is to say, films that leave more to one’s imagination, that are psychologically scary and character-driven, and what scares you is more cerebral than superficial. Slasher Films is my vehicle to realize that aim, and ‘Nothing Left To Fear’ is the first film with more to come.”

Scott Penfold of the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada radio station Y108 (CJXY FM) recently conducted an interview with guitarist Synyster Gates of AVENGED SEVENFOLD. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows told a Canadian radio station that he isn’t bothered by recent comments from MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn, in which Flynn called the band’s new “Hail To The King” CD a “covers album.” Flynn specifically called the band out for songs like “This Means War”, which bears a strong resemblance to METALLICA‘s “Sad But True”, along with others.

Shadows told the Ottawa station, “I have met Robb on numerous occasions and he’s always been cool to me. And I just read it as a joke . . . I really don’t know what to say about it other than I agree with him on the ‘Sad But True’ thing — that was obviously an inspiration for that song. Everything else, I kind of think he . . . If it is a joke, it was kind of overboard, ’cause it doesn’t make sense in my mind.”

Shadows added, “Some people might see it as being as an underhanded . . . joke. But, to me, if he just wants to go in there and write whatever he wants, I think that’s totally cool. Everyone has an opinion and everyone should be entitled to say whatever they want. So it’s no skin off our backs.”

Flynn didn’t pull any punches in his critique, writing, “Congratulations to AVENGED SEVENFOLD on their latest ‘covers album’ coming in at #1, who knew that re-recording METALLICA, GUNS N ROSES, and MEGADETH songs could be such a worldwide hit!!?? Ba-dap Psssssss!!”

Asked if the bands Flynn mentioned were influences, Shadows replied, “I think all the bands he said we were very inspired by. I think also [BLACK] SABBATH, [LED] ZEPPELIN, THE ROLLING STONES.”

“Hail To The King” sold 159,000 copies in its first week of release, giving the California band their second straight chart-topper after 2010’s “Nightmare”.

Next up for AVENGED SEVENFOLD is its first major tour in support of the new CD, which starts October 3 in Chicago.
