you live for these moments

ONE OF OUR proudest achievements here at Metal Hammer is being able to bring together true icons for the kind of blockbuster features you just won’t read anywhere else. Whether it’s M Shadows and Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Halford and Tony Iommi, or Corey Taylor and Randy Blythe, they always make for the most fascinating of reads: a conversation between kindred spirits who have an insight into the world of heavy music like few others. This month’s cover interview is no exception: Amy Lee and Sharon den Adel, two women who have blazed trails and inspired a generation of fans, came together for the first time to talk about their amazing careers, the struggles they have both faced and how the metal world has changed from the one they both first stepped…

meet the band

DANNII LEIVERS WRITER This month, Dannii was tasked with one of our biggest head-to-head interviews yet, as we brought two icons together for our mahoooooosive cover feature. It also marks Dannii’s first Hammer cover feature, so give her a high-five next time you see her at a gig near you. ALI COOPER WRITER Hammer’s Goth Kween stayed on brand AF this issue: we sent her to the London Dungeon to hang out with Italian goth metal royalty, Lacuna Coil! Rumours abound that Ali liked it so much down there she’s set up an office and employed a few resident ghosts as PAs. DEREK BREMNER PHOTOGRAPHER Don’t say we don’t know how to treat our loyal contributors. In recognition of his years of service as one of our finest snappers, we packed Derek off to Finland to sit in…

10 things we learned this month

METAL IS OFFICIALLY MASSIVE AGAIN 5FDP, Parkway Drive, Sabaton, Architects and Ghost are just some of the bands now dominating arenas in the UK. Hell yes. OZZY IS GOING RAP Well, not quite, but he did recently suggest that his appearance on a Post Malone album has inspired his new music. Hmm. SLAYER ARE DOING A MOVIE Repentless Killogy will star Jason Trost, Danny Trejo and Golden God winner Jessica Pimentel amongst others. THERE’S A LOST OPETH ALBUM And it’s proper death metal, according to Mikael. Sadly, he deleted it when writing the Heritage sessions. Oh well. MARILYN MANSON IS A VIKING He’ll be playing a ‘Viking death metal vocalist’ in the third season of US show American Gods. How about that?! EVERYONE LOVES MACHINE HEAD The Burn My Eyes tour has been extended, including a new London date at Ally…

godzilla or 20 draculas?

BRACED TO UNLEASH sinister eighth album Necrophaze and embarking on a killer run of UK headline shows in the autumn, we asked the Duke Of Spook, Wednesday 13, to answer the best questions you lot could dig up. Luckily for you, he’s not scared of anything… except earthquakes, apparently. What are your favourite horror movies from the last few years? It feels like everyone milks the ‘classics’ but there’s so much good shit around at the moment! Cat Hanner (email) “So you say! People tell me there’s a lot of great new horror movies but every time I try to watch them, they’re just not good. Maybe it’s because I’m older and I’ve got my favourites. I like older music and movies, it’s just one of those things. People kept telling me Get…
