Before he was selling out arenas with Killswitch Engage, Howard Jones
sang screamed for a band called Blood Has Been Shed. News came out recently that BHBS guitarist Corey Unger has begun writing new material for that band and there was a question as to if Jones would be on the record. Well, during a recent interview to promote KsE's upcoming release, our friends at MetalSucks went right to the source himself, Howard Jones, who confirmed he will be on the record. Personally, I'm really excited to hear this CD.
Earlier today, Blabbermouth exclusively reported that the title of the new Slayer record will be World Painted Blood. There is still no official release date but the band's camp is saying "late summer." One thing is for sure, this dude is excited.
One CD that does have a release date, that I am greatly looking forward to is the Despised Icon CD, Day Of Mourning which comes out on September 22.
Finally, our friends at Metal Insider have a really interesting interview with Devin Townsend, where he talks about his producing career.
