The Youtube user TASKMASTER is back! Check this out! There's a new Metallica-Megadeth mashup! This one combines 'Enter Sandman' and 'Symphony of Destruction' into an incredible track called 'Sandman Symphony.'
Rob Cagianno’s new band brings in former outfit as support for North American shows. Rob Caggiano will work with Anthrax again next year when they support his current band Volbeat on a North American tour.
The outfits will hit the road together for a run of shows starting on April 24 in Denver and ending on June 2 in New York. A total of 23 appearances have been confirmed, with more to be added. Crobot will open all shows.
Responding to the tour announcement, Anthrax said last night: “I think we know one of the dudes in the headliner…”
Guitarist Caggiano quit the thrash giants in January 2013 after 12 years with the band. He later said: “My heart wasn’t in it any more – I had a blast and they’ll always be family to me. But Anthrax was never a creative outlet for me.”
He was then hired to produce Volbeat’s fifth album Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies. But during the process frontman Michael Poulson asked him to join the band full-time, and he accepted. He was replaced in Anthrax by Jon Donais of Shadows Fall.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently discussed how close he came to joining Anthrax after they'd fired frontman Dan Nelson and before they reunited with Joey Belladonna, saying: "I wanted it so bad."

Dave Grohl admits he would have come up with a better than than Foo Fighters if he expected the band to be successful. The former Nirvana drummer entered a studio months after Kurt Cobain's death to record a bunch of songs he had written, and played all the instruments on what would become the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut.
Not wanting to live off Nirvana's legacy, he came up with the moniker to avoid using his own name. But if he could go back in time, he'd change it. Grohl tells CBS 60 Minutes:
"I called it Foo Fighters because I didn't want to put my name on it at first. Had I imagined that it would last more than a month and a half I might have named it something else. It's the dumbest band name ever. Foo Fighters is a slang term that they used for UFOs in World War II."
The frontman discusses the process followed while making the upcoming eighth Foos album Sonic Highways, which is accompanied by a documentary series which is begin screened by the BBC.
And he takes aim at reality TV shows like American Idol, which he says have no right to tell people whether or not they should make music.
He says: "Don't worry about what everyone else thinks. Who's to say who's good or not? Imagine Bob Dylan standing there, singing Blowin' In The Wind in front of those judges. 'Sorry, it's a little nasally and a little flat. Next'
"I would never make it. People need to appreciate their voice. I don't wanna sing like someone else, I wanna sing like me."
Sonic Highways is out on November 10, while the documentary series of the same name is currently airing on BBC Four.
Soundgarden will release a 3-CD, 50-track rarities collection, "Echo Of Miles: Scattered Tracks Across The Path", on November 24. Among the set's seven unreleased tracks is a brand-new recording, "Storm", recorded in May this year with producer Jack Endino in Seattle.
Curated by guitarist Kim Thayil, "Echo Of Miles" features original B-sides, unreleased tracks, instrumentals, covers and demos. "As album sets go, this one has been fun to collect and compile over the decades," says Thayil. "I personally may have referenced this project a number of times over the years, going back almost twenty of them to the mid-Nineties!"
Disc 1, dubbed "Originals", is filled with Soundgarden songs - mainly B-sides - in addition to two unreleased tunes, "Kristi" and "Storm."
Disc 2, "Covers", presents covers of tracks by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Ramones, Devo and others.
Disc 3, "Oddities", offers instrumentals, remixes and demos, including Steve Fisk's unreleased "The Telephantasm (Resurrection Remix)", "Twin Tower" written by Matt Cameron, which was originally recorded at Seattle's London Bridge studio in December 1988 during the sessions for "Louder Than Love", and "Night Surf", an instrumental performed by bassist Ben Shepherd.
Pantera were a legendary act that cranked out metal standards with regularity, delivering some of the heaviest, most crushing licks to come out of the genre. But how well do you know Pantera? Here are some interesting and unique facts from the band’s history that you can you add to your Pantera knowledge \m/\m/
Aside from Terrence Lee Glaze and Philip Anselmo, do you remember which vocalist briefly worked with the band? Do you recall Anselmo playing in Samhain (not that one)? Or how about that time when Dimebag Darrell almost joined Megadeth? Get a better idea of Pantera’s full story by checking out the ‘You Think You Know Pantera’ video above.
