This issue, we head over to the Netherlands for an exclusive chat with Within Temptation about their bold and dark new album.
They’re fired up! Elsewhere in the mag, we celebrate Him's Love Metal at 20, as Ville remembers how it broke the band in the UK and turned him into an icon.
A man who needs no introduction, Corey Taylor gets the Hammer Interview treatment and talks broken necks, melting masks and booze-fuelled near-death experiences, while Skindred main man Benji Webbe gives us a tour of his beloved Newport via bicycle – and the results are just as brilliant as you’d expect.
We chat to supergroup Empire State Bastard, featuring members of Biffy Clyro and Dave Lombardo, about the making of their thunderous racket, and find out why tech-death trio Vexed scrapped their second record and started afresh (with stunning results). Is there life after metal? Apparently so.
We chat to seven musicians who turned their backs on the industry and headed off in some weird and wonderful career directions (watchmaking? Surgery? Working on Love Island?!).
We meet Polynesian metallers Shepherds Reign, talk glam rock and big dicks with Ghost’s Tobias Forge, and hit the studio with Svalbard.
Priest legend K.K. Downing answers your questions, Lord Of The Lost’s Chris Harms invites us into his record collection, and we revisit Candlemass’s stunning Solitude.
All this, plus all the essential news and reviews from the world of metal!
