In this packed issue of Metal Hammer, we look back at the making of Rammstein’s stunning Mutter – incredibly, the album that made them megastars turns 20 this year.
We chat to Amy Lee about the tragedy and triumph behind Evanescence’s first proper album in a decade. System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian and Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams tell us their life stories… although Mike seems to have nine lives, if we’re getting technical. We revisit the crazy scenes behind Iron Maiden’s Killers, and chat wallet chains and sweaty pits with Tetrarch, the young leaders of the nu metal resurgence.
We count down the best 20 death metal albums ever, and pay tribute to the late, great LG Petrov, who tragically lost his battle with cancer earlier this month. Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe shares his life lessons, Des Fafara tells us the story behind Devildriver’s pit-starter Clouds Over California, and Loathe’s Kadeem France answers your questions about important stuff such as pasta, The Office and wasps.
Skindred’s Benji Webbe talks Brit-pop, costume changes and feeling like a rockstar in Asda, while underground grind/math merchants Pupil Slicer defend their grim choice of name, and Lingua Ignota invites us into the studio. We get the lowdown on the best new artists, and bring you the latest news and more than 50 album reviews!
