K!1693 – Metallica: Blood, Guts & Glory

Yep, it's that time of the week again where we reveal what's in the new issue of Kerrang!…

Since the very beginning, Metallicahave had a special bond with Britain. From reading about our record shops in their bedrooms, to headlining our biggest festivals, we've had quite the relationship. As they prepare for their first UK tour in eight years, the metal kings reveal how important our little isle has been to them…

And we count down the 25 greatest 'tallica tunes, too!

The cover looks like this:

Pretty fucking metulz, eh?

The mag is also jam-packed with a load of sweet, sweet content. We chat to Bert McCracken as he opens up about The Used's deeply personal – and absolutely wonderful – new record, The Canyon; Brian Molko of Placebo reflects on his career as a thrilling rock provocateur; and PVRIS' Lynn Gunn tells us what's on her iPod. Elsewhere, Iron Maiden unveil an Angry Birds video game – yep, you definitely read that right – while Tonight Alive return, one member down, from a period of turmoil. On top of all that, Andy Biersack reveals all on his American Satan movie.

Oh yeah, then Papa Roach reign victorious in Birmingham, while New Found Glory celebrate 20 years of pop-punk in London, and hardcore heroes Stray From The Path also decimate the capital. And, finally, we give the new Weezer and We Came As Romans records the K-rating treatment!

Last but not least, there's even more Metallica love, with a through-the-ages poster special.

All this and more goes on sale on Wednesday, October 18 and is available online at Newsstand.
