A NEW FAVORITE BAND? MMMM….COULD BE…The CHILDREN OF BODOM. LESLIE WEST LOSES PART OF LEG AND CONGRATS TO SCOTT IAN AND PEARL ADAY ON A BRAND NEW BABY BOY!
This is the second video from the latest Children of Bodom release Relentless, Reckless Forever. Hitting the streets March 8, 2011 and getting rave reviews across the board this album could make them a household name in America.
The first video and song from this disc, Was It Worth It?, blew me away and this new tune is pretty dang sweet too! As in Was It Worth It? the playing is excellent and I love the pairing of hardcore metal vocalizing, and melodic, virtuosic playing. They sound to me like Dream Theater meets Fear Factory.
success and the procedure removed his limb up to the knee.Westis expected to fully recover and faces extensive rehabilitation.The guitarist’s family has requested that the public and media respect his privacy while he comes to terms with this life-changing transition.West is a guitar god. From the Sixties through today, he has been revered by artists and fans alike. He has been in command of one of the biggest, boldest electric guitar tones known to humankind, from the 1969 Woodstock Festival that placed his band MOUNTAIN in to historical lore through his upcoming release, “The Unusual Suspects”.
At age 65, West continues to remain current, as witnessed by the assemblage of legends joining him on his next album, which includes Billy Gibbons, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Lukather, alongside Kenny Aronoff. As West noted, “These guys don’t show up to play on everybody’s albums. They’re stars in their own right and fantastic players — everyone with their own sound and style, and about as far from ‘the usual suspects’ as it gets.”
The release date for “The Unusual Suspects”, and further information on West‘s recovery will follow in due time.
When asked what it’s like having the iconic Meat Loaf as his father-in-law, Ian said in a recent interview, “It’s like having anyone as your father-in-law. It’s not like he’s on stage when you’re hanging out with the guy. We actually had dinner with him last night, and all we talked about was fantasy football. He’s just a regular guy who happens to be a legendary rock star.”
“Worship Music”, the long-awaited new album from ANTHRAX, is due in the U.S. on September 13 via Megaforce Records (one day earlier in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records).
“Persistence Of Time”.
