album news - 2001-08-28

2001-08-28 - Work on the record has been intense and easy at the same time. Band morale has been great and that tends to keep everyone sane. Even in our 115 degree room with the dead rat behind the wall and the "Amityville Horror" like plague of flies, things have been fast and furious. It's been the most collaborative effort we've undertaken in maybe, well in maybe ever. The music is hard. Riffs. Not just one finger tuned down chords. Riffs. We write riffs. I guess we'll never get on the radio now help me Jeebus! No fake programmed "disco-metal." No "pseudo-heavy we wanna be metal but would never call ourselves that" gayness. No "rap-metal." What a concept. We stay different by staying the same.

We've got a few more weeks of writing before the tour starts. Best scenario is to go on tour with 11-12 songs and have the whole tour to work on the vocals. Totally possible as we've got 8 songs now. My current favorite is called "What Doesn't Die." Fastest double bass Charlie has ever played. Every song is about destroying organized religion. Kidding. Just one or two. Maybe we'll call the record "9 Lives." NOT. No title yet. How about that live record title? Metallus Maximus Livus. Now that's good. I'm actually looking forward to doing
this live record after denouncing it for years. Chalk that up to the lame "Live Noize" on Island. We're going to do all kinds of stuff we haven't done in forever (like Gung-Ho which we did at the Chuck Billy benefit) and we get to work with Joe Barresi, an amazing engineer. It's gonna sound great. We're busting ass (especially Brent) to get this done and out for the end of November. Great cover art. Very Italian, circa 1942. Know what I'm sayin'? You'll see what I mean. Mussolini would be proud. See you in Chicago. 10/3. Fuck yeah.

Be sure to pick up the re-issues of "Sound" and "Stomp" next Tuesday the 28th. Check them out. Re-mastered. Bonus tracks. My new liner notes are worth the price of admission by themselves. Us and new Slipknot come out
on the same day, oooh are we going to put a dent their business!

See you on the Priest tour.
Drinks for all my friends,
Scott Ian
