Titans on the Horizon – 3 (Possibly 4) MAJOR Major Label Releases Due This Fall

My readership is a pretty Metal savy group (of course!) but in case you were not aware, there are THREE major releases in the upcoming month or so.   Four if you count Slipknot’s “All Hope is Lost” CD which dropped just yesterday.  The other biggies are;

  • Sept. 12th – Metallica “Death Magnetic”
  • Oct. 20th – AC/DC “Black Ice”
  • ??????? – Guns N’ Roses “Chinese Democracy

Ok, so there really are only 3, ’cause I don’t think Axel is gonna get all of us a free Dr. Pepper by releasing Chinese Democracy in 2008.  I’d love to be wrong about that, tho. 

Anyhoo, it will be interesting to see which album sells the best, and which one IS the best.  Right now, my money is on Slipknot.  Sorry Angus, Sorry James & Axel.  I think AC/DC & Metallica’s releases will be average at best, Gun N’ Roses might even be worse.  Like I said, I’d love to be wrong on those predictions. 

In related news, a blogger was arrested today for streaming 9 unreleased tracks from “Chinese Democracy” on his website.  You can read that whole story HERE – and thanks to Blabbermouth.net for the initial news hook-up.

    I’ve heard two of the new tunes from Metallica and I was pleasantly surprised. AC/DC is doing the only available at WalMart thing that worked so well for Garth Brooks and The Eagles. Enough said. Really, the last interesting AC/DC record was Fly on the Wall in the late 80s.

  2. I publicly supported Metallica on this board a while back but based on some initial reports I’m hearing. . . I may end up with a big plate full of crow. We’ll see, but I intentionally haven’t listened to any of the streaming songs they’ve put up yet. Delaying my disappointment, I fear. You’ve given me hope that perhaps I should give them a spin.

    As for AC/DC, I agree with your point. The Wal-mart deal = good for AC/DC, bad for their fans. Wal-mart wouldn’t even carry the CD if it was the least bit ‘edgy’ so we can look forward to it being basically a rehash of the last 3 albums.

    And G N’R, well if it was a decent album it would already be out, wouldn’t it?
