New Guns N’ Roses album leaked…ck. out the tracks here

June 22, 2008

only 13 years in the making….

Nine ‘mastered, finished’ tracks from Chinese Democracy, the album that Axl Rose has been working on for the past 14 years, were posted on a little-known rock website, http://www.Antiquiet.com.

The infamous album is reported to have cost in excess of $13million (£6.5million) to produce but its release is said to have been held up by discussions between Rose and the band’s record label Geffen Records, over rights.

A poster calling themselves Skwerl made the nine songs available on Wednesday, without revealing their source, but the tracks were removed hours later.

The poster wrote: “I always said that the more that Axl and Geffen jerked around trying to figure out how to release this finally finished album that we’ve all been waiting over 13 years for, the greater the chances would be that it would slip out of a pressing plant or office somewhere and wind up in the hands of some asshole with a blog. So…”

Despite the hasty removal of the songs, reportedly after a call from the band’s lawyers, they soon spread throughout the internet, appearing on filesharing sites as well as YouTube.

Once released, the album will be the first original recording from Guns N’ Roses since the 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion.

It is rumoured that a Guns N’ Roses reality TV show is set to be broadcast to coincide with the official release of the album.

In reference to the lengthy wait for the album, the California pop-punk band The Offspring announced in 2003 that their next album would be entitled Chinese Democrazy (You Snooze, You Lose).

Metallica continues its dual goal of alienating fans and battling that damn “inter-web thingy”

June 11, 2008

Silly Metallica. The situation is like this.

  1. Metallica invites select bloggers to review some tracks to their new album.
  2. Metallica does not make bloggers sign Non-Disclosure Agreements.
  3. Said bloggers naturally post their review/thoughts/impressions of the songs on their respective blogs.
  4. Naturally, Metallica orders the blogs to remove the reviews, all of which were positive.
  5. Read full, sad account of Metallica sticking it to the man fans.

A very funny animation created several years ago during Metallica’s infamous battle with Napster. (NSFW language)
