Are you ready for some avant-garde metal music? Well, In the Woods ... have almost finished working on their fifth album, since the mixing process is done. The new record is being finalized by Frédéric Gervais at Studio Henosis and more news is coming in the near future! A snippet of the Norwegians' new music can be heard in the band's official Facebook page.
After his "We Are The Ones" solo album, Dee Snider returns to heavy metal with his new solo effort, "For the Love of Metal". The album was produced by Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta, will feature contributions from Howard Jones(ex-Killswitch Engage), Mark Morton (Lamb of God), Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Joel Grind and Nick Bellmore (Toxic Holocaust), and Charlie Bellmore (Kingdom of Sorrow) and will be released on July 27 via Napalm Records. Below you can stream the first lyric video for the track "Tomorrow's No Concern".
"For The Love Of Metal" track listing:
01. Lies Are A Business 02. Tomorrow's No Concern 03. I Am The Hurricane 04. American Made
05. Roll Over You 06. I'm Ready 07. Running Mazes 08. Mask 09. Become The Storm 10. The Hardest Way 11. Dead Hearts (Love Thy Enemy) 12. For The Love of Metal
Snider comments: "'Tomorrow's No Concern' is the perfect first single off of my new album, 'For The Love Of Metal'. Lyrically, it's about me living for today, not in the past. So many people waste their lives away remembering the 'glory days.' While I am proud of all that I've done, I'm more interested and excited about what is happening now. In the song, I urge the listener to do the same; live in the moment and don't let the past — good, bad or indifferent — or what might or might not happen in the future ever slow you down!"

Iron Maiden, who have embarked on their "Legacy of the Beast" European tour 2018, are facing another lawsuit, over songwriting credits. According to The Sun (the English newspaper), the band's former singer Dennis Willcock, who sang for Iron Maiden in 1976 and 1977, has filed a lawsuit against the band, claiming that Iron Maiden stole some lyrics that Wilcock had written, to some of their early classic songs ("Prowler", "Charlotte The Harlot", "Phantom Of The Opera", "Iron Maiden" and "Prodigal Son"). These songs were included in Maiden's first two albums ("Iron Maiden" and "Killers"). These allegations are "outrageous" and "absolutely ridiculous", as a spokesperson for the band said. With this suit, which was filed by lawyer Barry McKay, Steve Harris, Dave Murray and the publishing company Imagem London Limited are sued over £2,000,000 in disputed lyric credits and resulting damages.
This is another legal action by former Iron Maiden members, with which they try to gain money and fame, based on their minimal contribution to the band's classic works. And it is funny, because Willcock claims that he never knew his lyrics were used, because he never listened to the band's albums! What a pity!
