how ya doing?

STILL HANGING IN alright? It’s still pretty hard going out there, and I know many of you will be looking for something fun to take your mind off all the madness. It’s why we thought we’d use this issue to do something big and celebratory – like count down the hundred greatest songs of the century so far, for instance! Metal post-2000 has been on a fascinating journey, from conquering the planet in the early 2000s to expanding and evolving more than ever in recent years. Who could have predicted Limp Bizkit becoming the biggest band in the world for a moment, or three young girls from Japan becoming the biggest thing in metal for a generation? More than anything else, though, 21st century metal has provided us with a shit-ton…

meet the band

HANNAH MAY KILROY WRITER Longtime Hammer, Classic Rock and Prog contrib Hannah isn’t just one of the most excellent writers in the game, but she’s also been helping Editor Merl out with stitching together the front section this month. It’s looking in pretty fine nick, even if we do say so ourselves. DOM LAWSON WRITER He is the lightning that runs through Hammer’s veins, and he knows a thing or two about gloomy metal legends from the North, which is why Dom’s telling the tale behind a My Dying Bride classic for this month’s Story Behind The Song. They’ve done alright, that lot. RICH HOBSON WRITER Rich is always on the ball with exciting young bands, so who better to talk to rising German black metallers Imha Tarikat? As if that wasn’t enough, he also catches up with…

THERE’S BEEN PLENTY of rumour- and theory-mongering about when the next chapter of Ghost would pick up. The Prequelle era was officially brought to a close in Mexico in early 2020 as Cardinal Copia was finally anointed as a brand new Papa Emeritus – and a few weeks ago, we finally got to see Papa IV step on a stage again. Tobias Forge’s latest addition to the Ghost mythos was in full, dazzling display as Papa joined Swedish garage rockers The Hellacopters for a cover of Rolling Stones’ classic Sympathy For The Devil, aired as part of Sweden’s nationally televised quiz show, På spåret, on TV network SVT. Does it all mean we may get more Ghost activity soon? Only time will tell……

marilyn manson allegations: the story so far

(WARNING: the following story features details of abuse, which some readers might find distressing) ON MONDAY FEBRUARY 1, Hollywood actor and activist Evan Rachel Wood publicly accused Marilyn Manson of abusing her during their relationship in the late 2000s. The Westworld star alleged that she was “groomed” as a teenager by Manson, before he “horrifically abused’ and “brainwashed” her. Wood said in an Instagram post: “The name of my abuser is Brian Warner, also known to the world as Marilyn Manson. He started grooming me when I was a teenager and horrifically abused me for years. I was brainwashed and manipulated into submission. I am done living in fear of retaliation, slander, or blackmail. I am here to expose this dangerous man and call out the many industries that have enabled him,…

“yeah, i’ll be your dad, but you gotta call me papa…”

AFTER SURVIVING THE fall of nu metal, Papa Roach have consistently silenced their naysayers. They’ve embraced new sounds, collaborated with TikTokkers and have just released their second greatest hits compilation, celebrating the second decade of their career. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix is one of metal’s greatest survivors … but can he survive your questions? If you could bring one thing back from the nu metal era what would it be? Jacob Brady (email) “Adidas pants – look at this shit! [Stands up and does a twirl] I’m bringing them back right now! I’ve a wallet chain too. Sometimes you just don’t let go of shit.” Any plans to bring a trombonist back into the band at any point? @cam_smiley “No, not at this point, but it’s funny you brought that up. The fella that played trombone in…

johnny 3 tears

“I WAS ONLY banging Korn and N.W.A. when BECK wrote Sea Change in 2002, but I was digging into his catalogue four years ago and I was transfixed by Lonesome Tears. A long-term girlfriend had left him and he went into the studio the very next day: he didn’t have time to digest it, he laid it out when it was fresh and raw and you can feel it – Beck is my hero. “When WU-TANG CLAN wrote Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993, hip hop was all about money, girls and fucking people up. Then Tearz told a story about a boy getting killed in his hood and another who has HIV; that song tells a real story of what it’s like out there. You just don’t hear that…
