SLIPKNOT's '.5: The Gray Chapter' Headed For No. 1 On Next Week's BILLBOARD Chart
SLIPKNOT's long-awaited fifth studio album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", is likely to sell between 100,000 and 110,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on October 21 via Roadrunner. The chart will be unveiled on Wednesday, October 29.SLIPKNOT's only competition for next week's No. 1 slot on The Billboard 200 chart appears to be Neil Diamond's "Melody Road", which is expected to shift between 70,000 and 80,000 in its first week of of release.SLIPKNOT's fourth album, 2008's "All Hope Is Gone", claimed the coveted No. 1 debut slot on the Billboard chart after an extraordinary SoundScan recount. The album was initially announced today as a No. 2 debut, a mere 13 units behind THE GAME's NO. 1 debut, marking the closest margin in SoundScan history. The chart positions resulted from a reported 238,272 copies of "All Hope Is Gone" its first week in stores, while THE GAME's "LAX" reported 238,285. With such an unprecedented margin, Roadrunner Records and WEA requested an historic recount. SoundScan obliged and chart positions were reversed, with SLIPKNOT claiming No. 1 and a new margin of 1,134 albums. Final recount numbers are 239,516 for "All Hope Is Gone" and 238,382 for "LAX" sold during first week of release. ".5: The Gray Chapter" caps a very turbulent period for the masked rockers in which they dealt with the death of Paul Gray and the firing of drummer Joey Jordison, both longtime members and songwriters. Despite it all, singer Corey Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio he's proud of what the band has accomplished this time out. "The fact that we were able to kind of pull ourselves back up and not only go in and make a really good album, but make an exceptional album, in my opinion, I think it's a testament to just how talented this band is," he said. "It's a testament to how much passion we have for it. It's a testament to how much we're willing to fight to accomplish everything that we want to accomplish. I'm excited for people to hear this, because to me I think it's one of the best albums we've ever made."Gray died in 2010 from a drug overdose, while Jordison was let go last December, just before SLIPKNOT began recording the new album. Although the identities of their replacements have not been officially revealed, they are believed to be drummer Jay Weinberg and bassist Alessandro "Vman" Venturella. Meanwhile, Taylor defended himself in a new interview with Britain's XFM Radio from accusations that he orchestrated both Jordison's dismissal from SLIPKNOT and the firing of the band's guitarist, Jim Root, from the band that Taylor and Root founded together, STONE SOUR.Taylor, calling himself "one of the most hated dudes right now," explained, "That's the burden of being the frontman. [But] I'm not the boss. Trust me. I'm not the boss in either band. It's very much a committee. I help make decisions, but I don't make decisions. But that's the perception.” SLIPKNOT will celebrate the arrival of the new disc this weekend with two headlining performances on Saturday (October 25) and Sunday (October 26) at its own Knotfest in San Bernardino, California, along with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, VOLBEAT, HELLYEAH, NOTHING MORE, ATREYU, IN THIS MOMENT, OF MICE & MEN and many more.SLIPKNOT will head out on a headlining North American tour immediately following Knotfest, with special guests KORN.slipknotgraychapterbigger2_638
POISON Reunites For Corporate Gig, Teases Possible 2015 Tour
Photos of POISON's first rehearsal for a performance at a private event in Southern California can be seen at BretMichaels.com. A posting on the site reads: "So far no fist fights, sounds great and feels great. Maybe a reunion in 2015…" POISON drummer Rikki Rockett recently told the "92 Minutes Of Hair With Mel" show on the Las Vegas, Nevada radio station KOMP 92.3 about rumors and speculation about a possible rift within POISON, particularly as it relates to him and singer Bret Michaels: "Actually, there's nothing wrong within the band that I'm aware of — I mean, unless something happened and nobody told me. "Sure, we're trying to put a tour together. And if we can put it together and it makes sense and we can get our crap together, we will do something. "What I was answering in one question [in a previous interview] was, 'At this moment, as I sit here, we're not contracted for a POISON tour next summer.' That's all I was saying. And it contradicted something Bret had said [in a separate interview], but not really. Bret didn't say we had a tour for sure either. He said, 'I think we're gonna probably be able to tour. And I'm not saying that we are.' He didn't commit to either. Whatever… It's fine." According to Rockett: "POISON has never disbanded. POISON will continue on as long as it makes sense. I mean, C.C. [DeVille, guitar] departed for a while and that was really the only time we weren't the original lineup. But we always will be until it just doesn't make sense anymore."Rockett told the "Iron City Rocks" podcast that POISON has been doing "corporate gigs for different companies, which are fun, and they pay very well. It gives us a chance to all get together and play. And, in fact, we have one in October and we have one in January [2015]. But they are the only shows that POISON is doing this year; we are not doing a tour this year. There is a few things that are being thrown around right now by our management for next spring, and we'll just have to see."Rockett took to Twitter in February 2014 to complain that POISON couldn't hit the road this summer because a certain member of the glam-metal act was "making it a problem."POISON last toured the U.S. in 2012 as part of the "Rock Of Ages" package with DEF LEPPARD and LITA FORD.

OPETH's MIKAEL ÅKERFELDT Says He 'Never Talked' To BILL KELLIHER, BJÖRN GELOTTE About Possible Collaboration
OPETH vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt has shot down rumors of a possible side project with MASTODON guitarist/vocalist Bill Kelliher and IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte, explaining that he has "never talked" to the other two guys about it.Kelliher recently said that he was hopeful that the collaboration with Åkerfeldt and Gelotte would see the light of day, telling RockSverige.se: "We haven't really gotten [as] far [as writing music together] yet. It's harder than I thought it would be… [But] it is definitely a plan." Regarding how the idea for the project came about, Kelliher said: "We were on tour together, you know, and I was writing stuff and I was, like, 'Hey, how about I send you a riff,' and [I told Björn], 'You could play anything you want' and he's, like, 'Well, if you send it to me, it's going to be metal.'"Kellier added: "I could never get my riff to sound perfect, or as close to perfect as I wanted it to, to send it to him so. I stalled out on that. I've got to re-do it and try it again." But in a brand new interview with RockSverige.se, Åkerfeldt claimed that had never discussed the collaboration idea with Kelliher and Gelotte. He said: "I don't know of this. He's really cool, no doubt about it, and Björn is too, but we've never talked about this."OPETH's eleventh studio album, "Pale Communion", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 19 on The Billboard 200 chart.IN FLAMES' new CD, "Siren Charms", opened with around 9,000 units in to land at No. 26.MASTODON's sixth album, "Once More 'Round The Sun", sold around 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart.

ROB HALFORD Says Listening To Canadian Singer MICHAEL BUBLÉ Is 'Exciting' And 'Inspiring'
In a recent interview with the New York Post, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford spoke about his love for Canadian singer Michael Bublé. "Even though I'm a metal singer, the fact that I’ve been able to appreciate other types of performers has probably paid dividends," Halford said. "When I listen to Michael Bublé, it's exciting, it's inspiring. I feel the same way with Michael Feinstein or Ryan Adams. I'm drawn to singers who have something different to say vocally, and Adele would be in there. I saw [Barbra] Streisand in Phoenix and that was mind-blowing. Her voice is just so pure." He added: "I've also always had a passion for some types of opera — I've got a massive Pavarotti collection. I sing 'Nessun Dorma' when I warm up backstage." Asked if PRIEST is ever going to put out the tracks the band recorded in 1988 with producers Stock Aitken Waterman, of Kylie Minogue and Rick Astley fame, Halford replied: "I personally would love to release them, but there's a different consensus within the band. "Our rendition of [THE STYLISTICS'] 'You Are Everything' is just beautiful — it's an '80s megarock ballad, with big drums, big vocals, sweeping strings. "People are a lot more open-minded now, whereas in those days it could have created a bit of push-back, maybe even some damage to our reputation." Halford recently expressed interest in collaborating with one of his current favorite artists, pop superstar Lady Gaga. He explained: "I love her just because, for a singer, she's a fucking amazing singer. And then she writes all this material. And, of course, you look at her past and she's a total metalhead. She started off strongly into rock and metal and you've seem pictures of her with Alice Cooper or Bruce [Dickinson] from [IRON] MAIDEN and all of these other people in metal; it just shows you that she's committed to that. She's just a really sincere, complete person as a musician."
OZZY OSBOURNE's 'Memoirs Of A Madman' Collection: First-Week Sales Revealed

Ozzy's latest solo release — his tenth studio album, 2010's "Scream"— debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart, featuring the No. 1 Mainstream Rock smash "Let Me Hear You Scream". From the first notes of Ozzy's 1980's solo debut "Blizzard Of Ozz" and follow-up "Diary Of A Madman" to classic albums "No More Tears" and "Scream", no hard rock solo artist has had quite the same reach as Ozzy; his distinctive vocal delivery and larger than life onstage persona quickly endeared him to millions of rockers. Ozzy immediately had the attention of fans of heavy music with rock staples "Crazy Train", "Mr. Crowley" and "Flying High Again". With the 1991 release "No More Tears", Ozzy continued his radio success with acclaimed and hugely successful singles "No More Tears" and the smash hit "Mama, I'm Coming Home".

DVD Two features live performances and interview clips spanning Ozzy's solo journey, much of which makes its debut on DVD. Some selections have appeared on long-out-of-print VHS releases; others will be seen here for the first time, making this an essential package for fans old and new. Ozzy's union of music and visuals could not be more perfect, and the "Memoirs Of A Madman" DVD showcases that to brilliant effect.

AMARANTHE's ELIZE RYD: 'Women In Metal Always Get Objectified In A Different Way Than The Guys'
In a brand new interview with Australia's The AU Review, singer Elize Ryd of Swedish melodic metallers AMARANTHE spoke about the pros and cons of being the only woman in an all-male band. "Well, within the band, it's fine, because they see me as their sister, you know?" she said. "But sometimes we are very different, because I like to do different things than the guys do, so sometimes I feel very alone. And also, I feel that the women in metal always get objectified in a different way than the guys, and I think it's very unfair. I'm definitely a feminist in that perspective. It's usually the haters that write bad things about the women, and I think it's just wrong." She continued: "It's different for me than [it is for someone like] Floor [Jansen in NIGHTWISH, for example], because I am one of three singers in the band, and usually, when someone has a bad comment about the band or the sound, they usually put the focus on me, even though there are five other guys they could have criticized. I also read very, very, disrespectful comments that are focused towards me because I'm a woman — not because I'm an artist just like the other guys — so there is a difference. But I also get a lot of good critique. Mostly it's love." Elize also spoke about her recent blog entry in which she decided to name and shame someone who had written some disrespectful and sexist comments about her on her official Facebook page. She said: "I actually got a lot of e-mails about that from women who wrote that they had been treated very bad and had lived with this kind of hate, and they really appreciated it — and they feel better when they hear that it also happens to me." She added: "You should not take it personally, but it's very hard sometimes not to. "My wish is that there is going to be a change in that perspective of not saying certain things to women." Asked how she stays positive in this business, Elize said: "I stay positive thanks to all the positive critique I get, and the love I get from so many fans. I have so many fans who I feel the most amazing love from, so it's thanks to them I get more and more strong. It's definitely the good responses that I'm sucking in, and all the bad stuff, I try to keep it outside my life. I still think it's very important to actually point at people who are disrespecting you because you are a female — I don't have any patience or acceptance for it." AMARANTHE's third album, "Massive Addictive", will be released on October 21 via Spinefarm Records. The "Drop Dead Cynical" video can be seen below. The clip was once again helmed by Swedish director Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company AB, who has previously worked with HAMMERFALL, DIMMU BORGIR, EUROPE, LACUNA COIL and IN FLAMES, among many others.amarantheband2014newshot_638

The sounds were so good, we decided to do something we'd been threatening for many years: 'Party Killers'— a collection of cover tunes guaranteed to deafen yer neighbors!! It's basically a peek into the little red 45rpm singles box we used to have at home... songs and bands that were very influential to us as kids, but given the RAVEN overhaul! I think it gives a nice insight to our roots and will be an excellent companion to the new album."RAVEN is currently on tour in the United States, with support from NIGHT DEMON.RAVEN released the "Rock Until You Drop - A Long Days Journey" two-disc DVD as a digipak in North America on July 2, 2013 via SPV/Steamhammer.

BUTCHER BABIES' Cover Version Of NAPOLEON XIV's 'They're Coming To Take Me Away': Official Video
Taking a page from heroes METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES, Los Angeles metallers BUTCHER BABIES have recorded an EP of cover tunes that will surely please fans of the band, as well as fans of the artists that performed them originally. Titled "Uncovered", this EP was released on September 30 in North America (October 6 in Europe) and features the following five tracks: 01. Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers 02. They're Coming To Take Me Away 03. Don't Give A Fuck 04. Crazy Horses 05. Pussy Whipped The official video for BUTCHER BABIES' cover version of NAPOLEON XIV's "They're Coming To Take Me Away" can be seen below.BUTCHER BABIES' Carla Harvey (vocals) comments: "It was a blast recording songs that we have been fans of our entire lives and putting our spin on them. "We all chose a song that had some significance to us. My pick was 'They're Coming To Take Me Away' by NAPOLEAN XIV, because I have a vivid memory of my stepdad, who I considered completely insane, playing it over and over again on his car stereo when I was a pre-teen. The song is about being taken away to a mental institution. I can still see him tapping his fingers on his steering wheel to the beat..."BUTCHER BABIES' Heidi Shepherd (vocals) adds: "As an eight or nine-year-old little girl, I used to rummage through my parents' albums and 8-tracks looking for some cool music. In hopes that my parents had at least a little bit of good taste, I would play every single song looking for something that I could latch on to. That's when I came across 'Crazy Horses' by THE OSMONDS; it was the heaviest song I had heard at that age. I would play that song over and over and over again, I was addicted. To this date, it's still one of my favorite songs and reminds me so much of growing up in Provo, Utah." In regards to BUTCHER BABIES' cover of THE OSMONDS' "Crazy Horses", Donny Osmond comments: "When we released 'Crazy Horses", we were pushing against what THE OSMONDS were known for, but it became a greatest hit. The BUTCHER BABIES have reinvented this song in a creative and innovative way — and that's what music is about. Now...What if I had recorded 'Puppy Love' like this?" About the "They're Coming To Take Me Away" video, Shepherd says: "As kids, we always loved this creepy, quirky song around Halloween time. So, we thought it would be perfect to ring in the Halloween season with this video reminiscent of old slasher films."
