Bits and Pieces Chopped from the News

  • A billboard for Billabong, located in Manhattan's Times Square, featuring Metallica, prominently displays September as the release date of the band's forthcoming as-yet-untitled album. The ad is the only one of its kind, and comes on the heels of the Metallica Billabong shorts which were released a few months back.

  • Nevermore guitarist jeff Loomis has finished mixing "the ultimate shred record" according to an update. Producer Neil Kernon (QUEENSRŸCHE, CANNIBAL CORPSE) is currently at the helm at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, Washington.
    Drummer Mark Arrington joins Loomis on the as-yet-untitled album, due out later this year via Century Media. According to a press release, "the ambitious offering is an all instrumental effort and is destined to shed some much deserved spotlight on the genre’s most notable, yet unsung, guitar player."
    Loomis adds: “Being able to do this entire recording with Neil is really amazing as well. We've done some great work in the past, but being able to focus on an entire instrumental record is going to be great."

  • Drummer Chris Adler of Lamb of God will be contributing to Modern Drummer Magazine with a monthly column entitled, My Two Cents. In his column, Chris will be answering reader’s questions from his unique drumming perspective, as well as suggesting and teaching new drum techniques.
    Chris commented on his new monthly column: “I’m flattered and amazed to be asked to contribute a column to the magazine. As I mention in the column this month, I'm not the typical MD model. I'm not the Berklee kid - I'm the kid with the long hair and denim jacket that figured it out my way. I hope the column serves as a beacon to players like myself who may feel overwhelmed by MD magazine. It's great of MD to recognize the organic, self-taught style, and I hope to empower those readers who play from their heart, not just from the exercises we read. I'm already receiving very positive feedback and questions from readers and can't wait bring a bit different perspective to them.”
    Readers and fans are encouraged to write in with questions for Chris. Send an e-mail to miked@moderndrummer.com with “For Chris Adler” in the subject line.

  • Ted Nugent will reach a milestone this summer when the singer/guitarist will play his 6,000th concert during his three month tour. The trek starts June 7th in Sandusky, OH and concludes September 27th in Reno, NV, during which time the Motor City Madman will play 40 North American concerts sandwiched around eight European shows, July 7th - 14th.

  • There has been much speculation as of late to the status of Divine Heresy, but the band have regrouped in time for the start of the Tyranny And Bloodshred Tour, which kicked off a few days ago. Fans in attendance will get a first look at the group’s new touring vocalist Tim Cummings. Dino Cazares (guitars) further states: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. While we sincerely regret having to cancel our New England Metalfest performance, Joe, Tim and I are excited about what the future holds for Divine Heresy and can’t wait to get back on the road. We wouldn’t miss this tour for anything. Thanks to all our fans for keeping the faith, but now it’s time to let the music do the talking. Please come by the merch booth each night to say hello and we look forward to seeing all of you soon.”
