Roadrunner All Stars Album

Recommended Posts

Just got a copy - its actually, at the very least, a hugely interesting record. So far I've spent most of the time working out who's doing what where, and then who's written each tune.

For those that don't know, its 4 "Captains" - Dino Cazares (Fear Factory), Robb Flynn (Machine Head) Joey Jordison (Slipknot) and Matt Heafy (Trivium) who write the tunes and get ANYONE from the Roadrunner roster, past and present, to play on it.

There's actually a very wide spectrum of stuff on here, and an interesting array of musicians - Tim Williams, Daryl Palumbo, Pete Steele, James Murphy, Dani Filth, Junkie XL, Rhys Fulber, Glen Benton etc etc etc - some good stuff on there!

Its not all great, but its a fantatsic concept, especially for me as I was raised on Roadrunner metal and hardcore! (Back in the day when everyting RR put out was ace....)

That Jeff Waters is a shreddy muthafucka. I watched the DVD at Rico's. He's nuts. That type of music definatly puts the dunt in "dunt :rockon: dunt dun :rockon: dun :rockon: dun". the blast beat drummer was smokin too... ...the guy from ??????

well said. blast drummer, Mike Smith, suffocation. Only thing that got, and continues to get me is that joey's songs (minus the glen benton song) arent' all that cool. Shoulda stuck to his fast-as-fook footwork. I like to think i'm as eclectic as they come but i just dont like the track joey wrote with the kinda pop-rock thing goin on.
