Kids React To Hearing Metallica For The First Time

(Metal Hammer) Metallica are the subject of the latest episode of the Kids React! web video series, as a group of children aged between 8 and 12 years old hear the thrash icons for the first time.

Their reactions can be seen in the video below as they watch the video for latest track Hardwired. And while some are delighted and excited by what they see, others are less impressed.

Kelis, 10, looks bemused but interested as she says: "So aggressive!" Evan, 11, asks, "What? Is this the Rolling Stones or something? I have no idea." Tyler, also 11, decided to do with the flow and declares: "These guys are wild!"

Alex, 12, decided: "It doesn't make any sense. I don't think this is classified as music." And Dominick, aged 8, just puts his head down on the desk in bewilderment. Watch the video here.

Dream Theater Stream Song Featuring Lzzy Hale

(Prog) Dream Theater have streamed a new version of their track Our New World, featuring Halestorm vocalist Lzzy Hale. The original song appears on the band's latest album The Astonishing, which was released in January.

Keyboardist Jordan Rudess recently said that, despite the acclaim they'd received, it would be a mistake for them to follow their 13th title with another concept album.

He reported: "This is a particular creative adventure for us, to write a concept album very much like a musical or a rock opera. I think that whatever we decide to do next - which we haven't really decided - will be something very different. It's not going to be another concept album. I don't think that would be the best thing to do.

"But it will be some creative adventure that we'll feel like we want to put our energies behind." Check out the song here.

Myles Kennedy Learned A Lot Working With Slash

(Classic Rock) Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy says that he has learned a lot about hard work from his time as lead vocalist for Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's solo band.

And he's joked that both Slash and Alter Bridge axeman Mark Tremonti have lied about his own guitar skills. Meanwhile, he's hoping that 2017 will be the year his nearly-complete solo album is released - if schedules allow.

Alter Bridge will launch fifth album The Last Hero on October 7 and aim to spend much of the upcoming 12 months on the road. Kennedy tells Alternative Nation: "When we're preparing for a tour or a record, Slash will rehearse something over and over and over again. He just burns it into his brain. I've seen how that can have a positive impact on a performance and how a song comes across. I definitely try to incorporate that more now."

He intends to apply the lesson to Alter Bridge's upcoming press tour, which includes a number of acoustic sets. "It used to be that I'd just show up, grab the acoustic and play.

"Slash would insist we get together and practice acoustically, because it's a different arrangement. Little things like that have tweaked my perspective. I work harder because of it. He's instilled a certain work ethic for sure. He's amazing." Read more here.

Korn's Jonathan Davis Doesn't Relate To Normal People

(Metal Hammer) Korn's Jonathan Davis says that he doesn't "relate with anyone that's normal anymore." Guitarist Brian 'Head' Welch previously said that the vocalist had "grabbed his soul and ripped it open" on their upcoming album The Serenity Of Suffering - and now Davis describes how he personally relates to their latest track Insane.

He tells Matt Pinfield: "It's always been therapy to me. It's how I've been dealing with my problem since day one. Other people paint and buy cars. For me, I choose to get out my problems with my music. It helps a lot of people.

"The song Insane is another chapter in my f***ing crazy life. It's about watching things happen and fall apart around me, and there's nothing I can do about it.

"I've got to the point I don't relate with anyone that's normal anymore. I can only relate to people who are going through insanity, or there's something wrong with them. That's how I deal.

"I wrote the lyrics and I looked at them like, 'What the hell does this mean?' I just fit with the vibe of the song. It's one of the heaviest songs on the record. I love it." Read more here.

Justin Timberlake Releases William Rast Video

(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake's fashion line William Rast has announced its fall collection the pop star and his partner Trace Ayala discuss the way music influences style in a video promoting the new line.

"To talk about the brand you have to understand where we grew up," says Timberlake. " "[Memphis is] obviously a huge historical music town, and Nashville right down the road is the cornerstone of country music, but Memphis is also the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock and roll."

"It's gotta be a little bit country and it's gotta be a little bit rock n' roll at the same time," he continued. Timberlake sites Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley as style icons, "guys who were never really trying to be that, they just were that." Check out the video here.

Drake Plans New Dance Club in Houston

(Radio.com) Drake hosted "The Ballet," a pop-up dance club experience in Houston last Monday (September 5), one day after his Summer Sixteen Tour stop in the city. But apparently "The Ballet" isn't just going to be a one-time affair.

In 2017, Drake will be opening a permanent dance club in Houston that sounds as though it will feature women dancing, but not in a strip club way. A fan attending the pop-up captured Drake announcing his latest endeavor.

"This is about the fact that there's a culture out there of dancing and it's not about no strip club s—," he said. "It's about these amazing women that we've got in one spot, this music that we've got, this Houston culture that we got. I just wanna let you know that I'm going to bring it to you in the most honest and genuine way possible."

In a second Instagram post, Drake wrote about the pop-up event turned permanent dance club. Read the post here.

Singled Out: 35th and Taylor's Night Terrors

35th and Taylor singer Anna Taylor tells us about the song "Night Terrors" from their recent album release "I Know You're Trouble." You may recognize Anna as former contestant on The Voice. Here is the story:

The song "Night Terrors" was a last minute addition to our album, 'I Know You're Trouble.' Two weeks before recording, I sat down at the piano and stumbled across a chord structure I really liked. To me, the chord structure sounded dark and mysterious, and while playing it, I came up with the line, "There's a ghost under my bed." As with most of my songs, the song grew from this simple sentence.

I continued on with the theme of ghosts and being scared of the unknown expressed through childhood fears, specifically night terrors. Writing this song took only 15 minutes for me. The words came really quickly, and it just seemed to flow.

I didn't really have to think too hard on this one, which is definitely not the case with some of the other songs on the album. I think why this song was so quick and easy for me to write was because the words really meant something to me.

"Night Terrors" is about lying awake at night in fear that you are going to lose someone, and at the time of writing this song, I knew someone I cared about was moving away.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
