Photo by Danny Clinch It’s been a long three years for Pearl Jam fans since the band’s last album of original material, ‘Backspacer,’ was released — but it looks like some new music is finally on the way. Grunge Report points out an excerpt from the latest issue of Rolling Stone in which bassist Jeff Ament reveals the band’s plans to finish its next record in early 2013. Asked to compare the new material’s sound to ‘Backspacer,’ Ament responded, “Hopefully the next thing is something more out there. I think we’re about due for some songs that are way outside of where our comfort level is.” Speaking of going outside one’s comfort level, drummer Matt Cameron — who’s been with the band since 1998 and is currently pulling double duty with the reunited Soundgarden — was asked during a recent interview about the possibility of having the two bands tour together. “After I play like, I don’t know, two hours with Soundgarden, my day is done,” chuckled Cameron. “When we did the PJ20 show, Chris [Cornell] came out to that and we played some Temple of the Dog stuff, and it was awesome. Maybe there might be a one-off where that could happen, but I’m not 25 anymore.” [button href=”http://loudwire.com/upcoming-grunge-albums-readers-poll/” title=”Readers Poll: Most Anticipated Upcoming Grunge Album” align=”center”]
Deftones have perfected the quiet-loud dynamic in hard rock. They expertly mesh frontman Chino Moreno's love of PJ Harvey and guitarist Stephen Carpenter's Meshuggah worship in their songs. Those two forces collide in Deftones music, which is often dubbed “alternative metal.” That's too simple of a classification, since the band vacillates between meaty, heavier-than-granite parts and pretty, lush, utterly feminine passages. Choosing the 10 Best Deftones Songs was difficult, since they have an extensive body of work. Our list is heavy on 'Around the Fur' and 'White Pony' songs, as those albums truly represent the band's artistic and commercial pinnacle. Since the Sacramento band has been active since the early '90s, choosing 10 songs was a task that was muy difficile. But here's what we came up with.
The process of choosing the 10 Best Judas Priest songs comes with many sacrifices. After 43 years, 30 singles, 16 studio albums and a mass of studio and live material to take into consideration, all of which has constantly evolved since the band's inception, you'll find your brain in a panic in attempting to judge dozens of monumental tracks, which shaped the entire genre of metal. You may even find yourself cowering in the fetal position after many coffee-induced, sleepless nights of arranging and rearranging tracks in a seemingly endless rotation. However, we're happy to report that we've returned from the psychogenic abyss with our final list of the 10 Best Judas Priest Songs!
System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan has worked with various artists since the band’s hiatus in 2006.

Corey Taylor, a man who two years ago said it's too soon to talk about Slipknot recording, is now finally at the point where he can discuss the progress Slipknot is making. The healing has begun! It makes sense, since the band recently got together to celebrate the two year anniversary of the tragic passing …
