Weekend Heavy Metal: Marilyn Manson, Coalesce, Zao, Opeth and More
Next week, we'll be bringing you news on Bury Your Dead, among others. The band were in town this week, to promote their new album, which hits record stores on Tuesday, and boy, did they show us some pictures we won't soon forget. More on that later. For now, here's a handy list of links, that'll bring you to some of the stories we did this week that we're most proud of. Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you have a killer weekend.
+ We sat down with none other than Marilyn Manson, who's perhaps one of the funniest dude's we've ever met. We discussed his new video for "Arma-Goddamn-Motherf*ckin-Geddon," which was filmed using more than 30 cameras. You can check the clip out right here.
+ We brought you an exclusive track from Coalesce's forthcoming album, "Ox." It's called "The Purveyor of Novelty and Nonsense," and its awesome. We also started a healthy death metal debate, by presenting you with our list of the genre's ten best debut albums.
+ We brought you news on Old Man's Child, talked to Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt about life in the road, and caught up with Megadeth, too.
+ Luna Mortis' Mary Zimmer told us what its like to be one of metal's hottest babes, talked shop with the dudes from Gallows, got Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd's pick for this year's "American Idol," and spent some time with Zakk Wylde.
+ We brought you news on former Soilwork drummer Henry Ranta's arrest, spent some time with Michael Schenker, and had Scott Mellinger of Zao show us his toy collection. Rad.
+ We also caught up with Ministry's Al Jourgensen to discuss the NHL playoffs, and sat down with the dudes in 3 Inches of Blood to talk about their new album, new label home, and working with Slipknot's Joey Jordison.
