Mustaine tells WRIF: "I think that Anthrax and Slayer, the three of us have played so much over the years that, for me, it's boring now. Not taking anything away from any of the bands, because I love Slayer and Anthrax - but I think that if we were going to do something again, it should either be the four of us, or give it a rest for a little while."

Their future was thrown into doubt after drummer Neil Peart described himself as retired, and they admitted their 2015 road trip was likely to be that last of its kind.
Speaking as Lifeson and frontman Geddy Lee attended the opening of a Toronto park named after them, the guitarist says: "It's been an adjustment, this past year. We've been following up on some other interests that we both have, and we've been learning to get used to the idea. It's taken a while.
"But I feel very confident about a lot of things, and music is definitely one of them. I'm sure we'll do something in the future. We can't just stop playing and writing music together."
Lee adds: "I play almost every day that I'm around the house. I've been travelling a lot with my wife. We're very big on taking advantage of this break in my career, whatever it may be.
"But I love playing and I play a lot. Sooner or later the right thing will happen." Watch the video cliphere.

In May this year Worsnop said: "I ended up leaving because it lost the art to me - it lost its artistic integrity in my eyes. I was just selling out, and that's not what I do."

Frontman DuVall recently said of Broken Lines: "As much of that heavy, progressive stuff is there, there are also more straightforward tunes.

The label describe La Petit Mort as "an inspired body of work that marks a profound evolutionary leap" for the band, adding that the work focuses on the themes of violence and despair, and the "steady desensitisation of the human spirit under those conditions."
Frontman David Gunn told Metal Hammer in April: "In a sense, this is the first King record. People know our capabilities and where our heads are at, but I want to mix all the sh*t we did before together as one thing that stands alone.
"This record has a sense of self. Memoirs was fragmented. It was playing someone else's game or some pre-established rules. This one doesn't have those rules - there is no record like this one." Stream the albumhere.
But he says he'd welcome a run of interactive theatre shows to give the audience the ultimate creepy experience. Cooper tells the Chicago Tribune: "I'd like to have a residency in a theatre where you can control every sense, smell and touch.
"You could have a staged rock'n'roll show, make the seat have a little shocker in it, or make it where smell comes into the theatre or you feel something behind you. That would be fun." Read morehere.
The trio settled their differences last year and they've played two festival sets with former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Acey Slade. Only tells AltPress: "It's a unique experience. We're 40 years into the game and we're all at the peak of our game.

Guitarist Bjorn Gelotte says: "The End is a fairly straightforward In Flames song. Having said that, it has a really positive vibe. It's not a slash-your-wrists kind of vibe - it makes you realise to just make sure you appreciate that moment."
Meanwhile, In Flames have confirmed Joe Rickard as their new drummer, replacing Daniel Svensson who left the group late last year. In Flames say: "From February to April of 2016 we recorded our newest album Battles with legendary producer, Howard Benson. Howard introduced us to one of his trusted and so talented studio drummers, Joe Rickard.
"Joe had such natural talent behind the kit - it seemed effortless. Once we witnessed him laying down drums to our own songs with parts we couldn't have imagined better ourselves - we knew we had to have him join In Flames.
"We are proud and excited to finally announce that Joe Rickard will be taking over the drums for In Flames. We feel by adding such a talented and pure musician to our band and brotherhood that we are doing Daniel a great justice in ensuring his hard work and talent will continue on."

In an interview about his upcoming autobiography Born To Run, Springsteen tells CBS: "I was trying to make the greatest record you ever heard. A record that after you heard it, you didn't have to hear another record."
Springsteen also discusses his relationship with his late father Douglas and how the book is partly an attempt to shine a more accurate light on the dynamic between them.
He says: "My dad is very important in it because I felt I hadn't been completely fair to him in my music. I felt that I left an image of him as a very domineering character, which he could be. He could be frightening. But he was also much, much more. He had a complicated life." Read morehere.
And frontman Joel O'Keeffe credits producers Bob Marlette and Mike Fraser with helping them to achieve their goals on the follow-up to 2013's Black Dog Barking.
He exclusively tells Metal Hammer: "Sonically, we wanted to strip it back. The last record is great and we love it, but we just wanted to take a bit of the production out and get more of the playing in.
"The live show really is the energy of this band and we really wanted to capture as much of that energy as we could, which is why we decided to work with Bob Marlette and Mike Fraser.
"Bob did 2007's Runnin' Wild, and we often get a lot of comments about how that album is our most raw and live- sounding thing. We listen to what people say and we decided they were right. Then we got Mike Fraser in, who we'd worked previously with on 2010's No Guts. No Glory, and we gave him full control to engineer and mix the record. His CV is ridiculous - he's done Aerosmith, Metallica and AC/DC."here.
Both bands are planning their own sets, but will also join forces with various collaborators for a mixture of iamthemorning, Bowness and No-Man material. "I'm really looking forward to combining what it is I do with what it is Iamthemorning do," Bowness told Prog. "I think we both share a certain sensitivity and melancholy, while being very different from each other stylistically. I'm hoping there'll be some interesting new takes on old songs."
Bowness is currently working on his third solo album, an ambitious concept album revolving around the backstage thoughts of a fictional 'classic' Rock musician in the twilight of his career (titled Third Monster On The Left), the release is unlike any in his back catalogue and an early 2017 release is tentatively scheduled.here.

During a Facebook Q&A session (via The Wrap), Gunn says: "Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians Of The Galaxy. The answer is, Steven, yes I am listening. And I'm a big fan of Steven Tyler's.
"I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in Super in 2010 in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie.
"He's a cool guy. And of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime." Read morehere.

"We are hugely excited for the release of Vox Humana and Cloudburst as we are especially proud of the work we have put into both releases - speaking from a musical, artistic and even business point of view. To say a lot of work has gone into this would be an understatement."
Both products will be released in physical CD format with purchasing available through the band's website and Amazon UK, and digital releases through iTunes, Tidal, Deezer, Spotify and more.here.
I was in my second year of college when I wrote this song. I had transferred to California Institute of the Arts, where I was studying Fine Art, and it was blowing my 19 year-old mind. And then there was a composer who played trumpet that I had started dating. It's hard to remember specifics from back then but here's something.
I decided to take a road trip after a mentally challenging week of college and after finding out Trumpet Man was heading home for summer.
I don't remember anything from that trip, just that I picked up my friend Stan, who thought he was on his way to class, and pieces from the drive home. We took the 101, Stan ran into a lake naked, I think we stopped for pistachios or strawberries or something, and then I also remember having a beer in an abandoned house somewhere off the highway near a gas station.
"The Happening" came right after this. I had been circling around two things that I needed to get away from and gain some perspective on.
1. was art school and figuring out the differences, if there were any, between the explanation and the object.
2. was about talking. Firstly, talking up in my relationships and not just assuming things will change -- actually speaking feelings, even little ones, out. And secondly, being aware of words versus action.
"It's not the way that you say these words, it's the way that they're happening".
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
