ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN Recalls 'Big Four' Superjam In Animated Video

ANTHRAX's SCOTT IAN Recalls 'Big Four' Superjam In Animated Video

It’s been six years since the four biggest thrash-metal bands — METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX – embarked on what they dubbed the “Big Four” tour, but the memories are still fresh for Scott Ian. In the latest installment of Rolling Stone ‘s “Had To Be There” series, the (animated) ANTHRAX guitarist recalls the feeling of sharing a stage for the first time with musicians he’d cut his teeth alongside and how he wished it had lasted longer.

Ian previously told The Irish Times about the “Big Four” tour: “I can’t really say enough about those shows. METALLICA have many reasons for their success over the years, and timing certainly is one of them. Success in the entertainment business is luck and timing. It really gave us the kick in the ass to keep moving forward. Those shows were very much the impetus to get Joey [Belladonna, vocals] back in the band. We felt that Joey should be the guy representing us on those shows because he was the guy who helped break ANTHRAX in the 1980s. It gave us the impetus to re-expose ourselves to an audience that has not seen us in a long time and it exposed us to a new audience that had heard of ANTHRAX and never seen us.”

METALLICA, SLAYER, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX played together for the first time in history on June 16, 2010 in front of 81,000 fans at the Sonisphere festival at Bemowo Airport in Warsaw, Poland. The night before the concert, METALLICA organized a dinner with members of all four bands, a get-together that MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson called “very relaxed and comfortable” and “a class way” to ease into the tour.

The “Big Four” played its last concert on September 14, 2011 at Yankee Stadium in New York City. Since then, METALLICA, SLAYER and ANTHRAX have played a number of shows together, including the 2013 Soundwave festival in Australia. They also performed at the 2014 Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine spoke to the “Talk Is Jericho” podcast about the possibility of there being more “Big Four” shows in the future. He said: “Am I supposed to doing it? You know, it would have to be the right thing. I think that, you know, MEGADETH is at a place right now where we’re successful to a degree where we would be happy continuing to do what we do on our own. So if we’re gonna do another ‘Big Four’ thing, I would want it to be something where we walk away as content as METALLICA does from something like that. It’s not METALLICA and three other dudes.”

KISS: 'Rock And Roll All Nite' Preview Clip From 'Kiss Rocks Vegas' Concert Movie

KISS: 'Rock And Roll All Nite' Preview Clip From 'Kiss Rocks Vegas' Concert Movie

On August 26, Eagle Rock Entertainment will unleash “Kiss Rocks Vegas” on DVD+CD ($21.98), Blu-ray+CD ($26.98), DVD+2LP ($39.98), and Deluxe Edition DVD+Blu-ray+2CD ($79.98).

Captured in the midst of their 40th anniversary world tour, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers sonically shook Vegas during their residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel And Casino in November 2014. This Sin City set sizzles with KISS classics from across their 44-album legacy: “Rock And Roll All Night”, “Detroit Rock City”, “Shout It Out Loud”, “Love Gun” and more. As a bonus feature, “Kiss Rocks Vegas” includes a seven-song acoustic set. Punctuated with pyrotechnics galore, the film presents the fire, electricity, and one-of-a-kind rock experience that earned KISS over 100 million sales globally.

The Deluxe Edition of “Kiss Rocks Vegas” is presented as a hardcover package with a 12X12 book, boasting photos from the show and an exclusive CD.

Said KISS frontman Paul Stanley: “We rocked and Vegas rolled! This was epic in-your-face KISS! We got up close and personal. I think rock and roll fans will really enjoy this spectacle that only KISS can deliver.”

Added Gene Simmons: “KaBOOM! We blew up the Joint at The Hard Rock in Vegas like never before. We are very proud of this and know that you will be blown away as well.”

Speaking to Las Vegas Weekly, Stanley stated about how the idea for the KISS residency came about: “To spend as much time as we do in Vegas and to live as close as we do, the idea of doing a residency and leaving our stage setup, as opposed to breaking it down nightly, was really appealing.”

He continued: “We [had] just finished 42 cities and played for 600,000 people, but that meant that every night the show got disassembled and moved. There’s something appealing and challenging about building a set that doesn’t have to be moved. You don’t have to take into account the practicality of it, being able to be broken down constantly and reassembled. So this was something that we had wanted to do for quite a while; it was just a matter of making sure we found people who were in agreement on how to do it. The Joint was the natural place to do it.”

“Kiss Rocks Vegas” track listing:

01. Detroit Rock City
02. Creatures Of The Night
03. Psycho Circus
04. Parasite
05. War Machine

Watch CARCASS's Entire Performance In Santa Ana, California

Fan-filmed video footage of CARCASS‘s entire July 23 performance at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California can be seen below.

CARCASS guitarist Bill Steer told ResidentRockStar.com last week that fans shouldn’t expect to see the follow-up to the band’s “Surgical Steel” album (2013) anytime soon. He said: “Definitely not, ’cause we’re still touring. It’s just there was no way we could do it. I think some of us in the band really wanted to get stuck into that last year, but not everyone felt the same way, and I think in Jeff‘s [Walker, bass/vocals] mind, we need to be touring up until the end of this year, and then maybe we can, you know, slow down. ‘Cause there’s no way we can make a record while we’re on the road. I mean, it’s just not possible. It’s not that kind of music.”

He continued: “It’s torture for me, because I would have liked to have been working on [new music] before this [latest U.S. tour], but I’m just one person in the band. I suppose if we’d done something too quickly after the last record, it wouldn’t have been taken too seriously anyway. We could have worked our asses off and done a really valid album, but because it was still in the wake of the previous one and the publicity around it, I don’t think it would have done too well. So I do understand the rationale in that sense, yeah, but just as a guy in the band, it’s frustrating, ’cause you wanna be creating new things, and two and half, three years down the line, if you’re still just touring a similar kind of set, it can be weird on a bad day.”

Steer also talked about the CARCASS songwriting process and how it has evolved over the years. He said: “When we get together and do our CARCASS thing, I guess it’s a very similar pool of influences we’re drawing from that we were drawing from back on album No. 3, [1991’s] ‘Necroticism’, and that’s a whole spread of things. Like the very early death metal — that stuff which we still revere — and a band like SLAYER, obviously, and MERCYFUL FATE and KING DIAMOND. There’s the whole New Wave Of British Heavy Metal era, which I’m a big fan of. I like a whole load of ’70s hard rock, but I’m quite careful about how much of that feel I bring into the band, ’cause there’s a limit to how far you can push that element. And we just do what feels right, I guess. That’s how we worked on ‘Surgical’; we just kind of went into the rehearsal room every day with a load of riffs and bashed things around, and if something felt good, we just ran with it.”

Joining Steer and Walker in CARCASS‘s current incarnation are drummer Daniel Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) and guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON).

“Surgical Steel” sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart.

FAITH NO MORE: Deluxe Editions Of 'King For A Day', 'Album Of The Year' Due In September

FAITH NO MORE: Deluxe Editions Of 'King For A Day', 'Album Of The Year' Due In September

FAITH NO MORE will release deluxe editions of “King For A Day” and “Album Of The Year” on September 9. These include new remasters of the original album, plus a bonus disc of rarities and B-sides. The reissues will be made available on 2-CD, double 180-gram heavyweight LP and digital plus streaming services.

Following the Grammy-nominated album “Angel Dust”, FAITH NO MORE returned in 1995 with “King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime”. Recorded at Bearsville Studios near Woodstock, New York, it was the first without longtime guitarist Jim Martin, whose departure had an influence on the direction of the album. In the new liner notes, keyboardist Roddy Bottum writes: “As a result, we wrote and recorded some of our most radical, out-there songs, like ‘Cuckoo For Caca’ and ‘Ugly In The Morning’, some of our mellowest like ‘Take This Bottle’, ‘Caralho Voador’ and then some of our most high-drama, like ‘Just A Man’.”

Among the eight bonus tracks are the B-sides “Spanish Eyes” and “Absolute Zero”, as well as the band’s cover of the BEE GEES“I Started A Joke”, which was originally released as a b-side in 1995, and then as a single in 1998.

“King For A Day” deluxe edition track listing:

Disc 1

01. Get Out
02. Ricochet
03. Evidence
04. The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies
05. Star A.D.
06. Cuckoo For Caca
07. Caralho Voador
08. Ugly In The Morning
09. Digging The Grave
10. Take This Bottle
11. King For A Day
12. What A Day
13. The Last To Know
14. Just A Man

Disc 2

01. Evidence [Version en Español]
02. Absolute Zero
03. Greenfields
04. I Started A Joke

08. Instrumental
09. I Wanna Fuck Myself
10. Evidence [Versão em Português]
11. Digging The Grave [Live]
12. The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies [Live]
13. Interview [B-Side]

“Album Of The Year” became the first FAITH NO MORE release to feature members of the current lineup: Mike Bordin (drums), Roddy Bottum (keyboards), Billy Gould (bass), Jon Hudson (guitar), and Mike Patton (vocals). Recorded mostly in Gould‘s home studio, the album produced three singles: “Ashes To Ashes”, “Last Cup Of Sorrow” and “Stripsearch”. In the liner notes, Bottum writes: “We were definitely referencing our musical roots as well, going back to darker tones visited in ‘Angel Dust’… in retrospect it feels really strong and an undeniably prolific chapter in what we ultimately set out to do.”

“Album Of The Year”‘s eight bonus tracks also include live versions of the album track “Collision” and the Burt Bacharach and Hal David classic “This Guy’s In Love With You”, plus rare mixes of “Last Cup Of Sorrow”, “Pristina” and more.
