John 5: Killing with kindness

Most music fans know John 5 from his current gig as Rob Zombie’s guitarist or his previous stint filling the same position for Marilyn Manson. But he has worked with a seemingly endless list of musicians and is building an impressive body of work as a solo artist. The Art of Malice, his fifth album of instrumental, guitar-driven music, was released earlier this year. While winding down from Zombie’s co-headlining run on this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and gearing up for this fall’s Halloween Hootenanny tour with Alice Cooper and the special-edition release of Zombie’s Hellbilly Deluxe 2 album, John checked in with Live Metal’s Greg Maki.

Wednesday 13: Murderdolls, Mick Mars and Fresca

Eight years after the Murderdolls’ debut album, Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls, Wednesday 13 and Joey Jordison, better known as the drummer for Slipknot and now Rob Zombie, are back with their sophomore effort, Women and Children Last. The songs this time come not from horror movies, but a darker, scarier, more personal place, and Roadrunner Records is so excited that it sent Wednesday out on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival to do nothing but meet fans and talk to press. Proper touring will start soon, with European dates with Guns N’ Roses and Ozzfest, and the opening slot on the Halloween Hootenanny Tour featuring Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper. At the Mayhem Festival’s stop in Bristow, Va., Greg Maki and Jeff Maki of Live Metal met up with Wednesday to talk about the new album and more. (more…)

Live on Mars: Rob Zombie bassist Piggy D.

Bassist, guitarist, songwriter, artist. Matt “Piggy D.” Montgomery is a man of many talents, and those skills led him in 2006 to becoming the bassist for Rob Zombie. With him on board, along with guitarist John 5 and Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, Zombie now has arguably the best band he’s ever had behind him. After soldiering through the summer heat as a co-headliner of the Rockstar Mayhem Festival, Zombie and his band are looking to the special-edition release of Hellbilly Deluxe II in September and an October run, the Halloween Hootenanny Tour, with Alice Cooper. When the Mayhem Festival came to Bristow, Va., Greg Maki and Jeff Maki of Live Metal sat down with Piggy to discuss both versions of the latest album, the upcoming tour and more. (more…)

slipknot-hopeAmerica’s favorite masked, eight-member extreme metal band was back with a vengeance in 2008. Slipknot had a tough act to follow after the mainstream success of 2004’s Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses), so they decided to follow it with probably their heaviest album yet, although not their best.
