It was a golden age for one of metal’s all-time legends, and this month, as Far Beyond Driven turns 20, we get the no-holds-barred trip down memory lane from three quarters of the band that made it all happen.
PANTERA grace the cover of our new issue as we land exclusive interviews with Phil, Rex and Vinnie, lifting the lid on the chaos and controversy that courted the Texan war machine as they broke records and topped charts across the globe, almost imploding in the process and setting the bar for the two decades that followed. You won’t get this story anywhere else. Trust us.
Plus, we’re packing 12 FREE POSTERS from the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Iron Maiden, Miss May I, Savage Messiah and more, as well as a FREE GREAT BRITISH TRENDKILL CD featuring some meaty cuts from British young guns that were inspired by this month’s mighty coverstars.
Also in our new issue, we find out what drove Of Mice & Men to take a drastic left turn for Restoring Force (just don’t mention ‘the n-word’), work out what took I Killed The Prom Queen so long to get that new album on the go, catch up with tech-metal monsters Periphery and hang out at Slash’s home cinema to watch his new horror flick. Spooky.
And, we discover the amazing and unexpected story behind the formation of Butcher Babies (and why the nipple tape was much more than a bit of, ahem, titillation), get arty with Napalm Death, chat to ex-Nightwish singer Anette Olzon about her explosive exit from the band, suss whether The Hell are saving hardcore or turning it into a joke and get spiritual with Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach.
All this plus immense features with Savage Messiah, Scorpion Child, Kvelertak, Halestorm, Crowbar, Conan and Bleed From Within, not to mention our review of that amazing new Lamb Of God documentary.
It’s all here, and it’s all heavy. Get from your local newsagents this week, or order our new issue below:
