METALLICA are set to go back into the studio in January to start recording the follow-up to 2003's 'St. Anger'. The band are said to have around 25 songs written for the album which they will narrow down to a single album during the recording sessions with legendary producer RICK RUBIN. The band have compared the new material to their classic 1986 album 'Master Of Puppets'.

Anthrax are to have a double live CD released on January 22 by Universal Music Catalogue. Called 'Caught In A Mosh - BBC Live In Concert', one CD features the band's performance at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on February 15, 1987, while the other was recorded during the band's Monsters Of Rock Festival set at Donington on August 22, 1987.

Hop over to for a FIREFEST 3 gig review.

SPV/Steamhammer SAXON’s new studio album, THE INNER SANCTUM, on March 5th, 2007. Available on the same date will be Saxon’s new double live DVD, entitled TO HELL AND BACK AGAIN.

AC/DC are rumoured to be playing European festival dates next summer. The UK’s Monsters of Rock festival is rumoured to have one from either AC/DC or HEAVEN & HELL or AEROSMITH as the headliners. Other bands possibly being lined-up include JUDAS PRIEST, MOTLEY CRUE (who recently toured the US with AEROSMITH), SAXON and THUNDER.


Press Release / When musicians of the quality of Angra, Nightwish, Kamelot and Stratovarius bring their united talents to the table, something great is ensured, but you'll be in for a real treat on March 2nd when you get your hands on the debut album from Almah, the new band from Angra singer Edu Falaschi, Nightwish and Brother Firetribe guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, Lauri Porra (bassist of Stratovarius) and drummer Casey Grillo (Kamelot). The limited edition digi-pak will include two bonus tracks!

The new Silent Force album Walk The Earth (their first for AFM) will be available from February 16th.
This record is exactly how melodic Power Metal should sound in 2007! Honest, down to earth, powerful, cleverly arranged but not completely melodic. Silent Force once again utilised the services of producer Dennis Ward, so prepare for February. The Gods of Power Metal will “Walk The Earth” once again…!
