has it really been 10 years?

I STILL VIVIDLY remember the moment I found out that The Rev had died. I was at my mum’s, caught in that between-Boxing-Day-and-New-Year’s-Eve slump of leftover food and unopened Quality Street. I was lazily flicking between TV channels when a got a text from an old friend: ‘Have you heard about The Rev?!’ I jumped on a computer and couldn’t believe what I was reading. In an era where young metal bands were often accused of lacking spunk and personality, James Sullivan was a towering character: the life and soul of a band who’d begun to take their definitive steps to becoming one of the biggest names in 21st-century metal. More than that, though, he was a phenomenal drummer: prodigiously talented with the sticks, sure, but also a vital part of…

meet the band

JONATHAN SELZER REVIEWS EDITOR If you see Selz over the festive period, please buy him a beer. Our December issue is when he has to shepherd all our contributors into handing in their Albums Of The Year list. Judging by the results, he’s amassed an army of reviewers with fine tastes indeed. ELEANOR GOODMAN DEPUTY EDITOR This month El went to a desert deep in the US to hang out with Alien Weaponry. No, she wasn’t pissing about at Area 51, but checking out one of the world’s most exciting young metal bands as they blew some pebbles off of Window Rock in Arizona. Resistance is futile. MATT MILLS WRITER Our Matt got stuck into the fascinating new documentary looking inside India’s complex underground metal scene. He also talked to its director about some of the challenges facing…

swede dreams

“I HOPE YOU like my hat, I’ve become old and eccentric… and obsessed with cowboys,” states Opeth frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt dryly as he addresses the crowd at one of the most prestigious venues in the UK. Not many metal bands could so effortlessly look at home in such historically classy confines as the London Palladium, but the Swedes are cut from a different cloth and have morphed into one of the most sumptuous-sounding bands on the planet over the years. And, with material from new album In Cauda Venenum sounding as gloriously smooth and lush as they ever have, the Palladium feels like the perfect setting for Opeth in 2019. Don’t be fooled, though: when they succumb to the endless howls for “Death metal!” from the seated throng and launch…

across the nation

IF YOU ASKED a metalhead to name their favourite band, it’s most likely that we’d name one from either Europe or North America. These two continents are, after all, where the vast majority of our genre’s commercially successful heroes have emanated from. But heavy metal is a worldwide phenomenon. It has spawned almost innumerable underground subcultures all over the globe, each teeming with artists driven to bless local fans with extreme, cathartic concerts. It is these seedy underbellies that inspired Indian documentarian Roy Dipankar to make his latest film, Extreme Nation. “I felt that there was a lot of underground activity within extreme music that was connecting my home country,” says the director, “but it wasn’t really being featured anywhere. I have been working for the last 15 years in record…

10 things we learned this month

R.I.P. TIMI HANSEN The Mercyful Fate and King Diamond legend passed away aged 61. Crank Abigail loudly today. MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE ARE BACK Secret emos across the Metal Hammer office have spent all month rejoicing. Good for them. …AND SO ARE RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE We’re gonna be honest: this is the reunion that truly matters to us at Hammer HQ this month. Now, who’s up for sending us to the USA? Anyone? …THOUGH THAT DOES MEAN PROPHETS OF RAGE ARE RIP While we’re happy to have Rage back, we definitely want to shout out B-Real and Chuck D for holding it down with the Rage guys in the meantime. AXL ROSE IS NAILS Take a tumble mid-gig? No problem. Axl continues to show he’s the most reformed man in rock by shrugging it off and getting on with…
