EVENING METAL MESSAGE 1-8-11 JOE ELLIOT TALKS ABOUT STEVE CLARK ANNIVERSARY, NEW HEAVY METAL COOKBOOK, )
Below is a short message from Joe Elliot:
WE DARE YOU TO COOK UP LEMMY CONTEST!
Legendary Motorhead front man Lemmy Kilmister has a recipe that is so metal it could only be featured in Steve Seabury’s heavy metal cook book “Mosh Potatoes”. LoudTrax.com, the rock, metal, punk download and merch site has decided to partner up with Lemmy and “Mosh Potatoes” to dare all the metal heads around the world to cook up their version of Lemmy’s “Krakatoa Surprise”.
The idea for the contest came about when author Steve Seabury and LoudTrax.com founder Antonio Marsillo were hanging out in Times Square, smoking a couple of Cuban cigars. Steve handed Antonio a copy of the book and they were making jokes about the many recipes. Many beers later, the idea to dare metal heads around the world to cook up Lemmy’s recipe was born.
Lemmy himself liked the idea so much, he offered up an autographed, framed photograph and as well as a signed CD. In addition to Lemmy’s prizes, the winner of this contest receives a boat load of prizes including Lemmy shirts, Harley-Davidson (R) boots, and more. Participants must send a video of them cooking up this monster, upload it to YouTube and then submit it on the Lemmy Contest section of LoudTrax.com.
LoudTrax.com is the world’s first and only website specializing in Rock, Metal, Punk downloads and merchandise. It’s made by rock music fans, for rock music fans. The site boosts 17 dedicated sub genres ranging from Thrash Metal, Hard Rock, Black Metal, Death Metal, Punk, Classic Rock, and more.
“Mosh Potatoes” is the heavy metal cook book with recipes, anecdotes and mayhem from the heavyweights of heavy metal. Seabury managed to get recipes from Lemmy, Zakk Wylde, Motley Crue, Guns ‘n Roses, Dream Theater, Testament, Lita Ford, Megadeth, Anthrax, George Lynch, and a who’s who of Heavy Rock artists.

MusicReview recently conducted an interview with TRIVIUM frontman Matt Heafy. In the interview Heafy talks about the bands forthcoming album, whether he would’ve done Trivium’s past albums differently, and more. Excerpts from the interview are below:
MusicReview: Shogun featured several mythological themes. Is the new album going to be a continuation of this?
Matt Heafy: “Shogun‘s mythological themes were something that felt called for by the music. Every CD has been so different with its lyrical inspiration that this next album will definitely be its own thing. So, it won’t be carrying the mythological feel of Shogun.”
MusicReview: Musically, what can we expect? Is it a combination of everything Trivium has already done?
Matt Heafy: “It’s tricky to describe. We want it to be that this next album just sounds like Trivium. We may have – probably have – said that every record’s goal is that, and it has been, but this time it’s without question. There have always been experimental songs, since Ascendancy, on our albums, and this time the CD will only have what it is meant to have.”
MusicReview: Trivium’s previous albums have included longer instrumental-only tracks. Can we expect the same this time around?
Matt Heafy: “Unfortunately, as of right now, there doesn’t seem to be an instrumental song that will be on the album. However, there will be songs that do things we have never had as a song formula before.”
