With over 15 years in music and nine studio albums, Swedish melodic death metal band Amon Amarth have built quite a legacy. Loudwire had the chance to chat with the band’s drummer Fredrik Andersson during their recent headlining show in New York City and he spoke about their 'Deceiver of the Gods' disc, the longevity of the band as well as his fondness of beer. Check out our interview with Fredrik Andersson of Amon Amarth below:
The year is young, but it's already been quite the roller-coaster ride for Lacuna Coil. Not only are the Italian metallers gearing up for the release of the new album ‘Broken Crown Halo’ (due out April 1), they recently announced the retirement of their longtime guitarist Cris “Pizza” Migliore and drummer Cristiano “Criz” Mozzati. Not to mention, Lacuna Coil are also a part of Revolver’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour.
Those who've dug into DevilDriver's 'Winter Kills' album since it was released in August 2013 may have caught a striking cover song on the disc. The group took on the AWOLNATION hit 'Sail,' adding their own intense stamp on the track, and Loudwire is proud to exclusively bring you the lyric video for the song in the clip above.
Just in time to promote Black Label Society's ninth studio album, 'Catacombs of the Black Vatican,' guitar god Zakk Wylde dropped by our studio for an exclusive interview. During our chat with the BLS frontman, he told us a must-hear and hilarious Ozzy Osbourne story unlike any you've heard before.
Up-and-coming British rockers Cage the Gods are ready for their U.S. breakout and they're hoping to pave the way with their 'Badlands' album. In advance of the album's release, the group is teaming with Loudwire to exclusively debut the title track off the album (listen above).
Finch ended their hiatus in 2012 to reunite for a handful of 'What It Is to Burn' 10th Anniversary shows. That eventually led to more dates that in turn provided a new live album taken from the performances. Now, as the band get ready to drop their 'What It Is to Burn - X' concert album on March 25, they've teamed with Loudwire to exclusively bring you the live video for 'Perfection Through Silence.'
