Hard-rock and heavy-metal musicians “Salute the Troops” in the new issue of Revolver magazine, available everywhere on August 16 in anticipation of the 10-year anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy. Inside, cover stars Five Finger Death Punch talk about how their 2010 trip to the Middle East to play for U.S. troops helped closer together. 5FDP’s third album is set for release this October 11. Also, artists including Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Godsmack, Staind, and Shinedown recount their experiences on U.S.O. tours abroad, and members of Tool, All That Remains, and others share stories of their times serving in the military.
The issue also includes a feature on American Idol contestant James Durbin, who urged the United States to “give metal a chance.” He discusses how he discovered metal by hearing singer Ronnie James Dio on the radio, what performing on Idol alongside artists like Zakk Wylde and Judas Priest was like, and what the future holds for him.
The jam-packed issue also features articles on Megadeth and former Skid Row singer and reality TV star Sebastian Bach, as well as Metallica, the movie Fright Night, Theory of a Deadman, Kittie, Chimaira, Eyes Set to Kill, and others.
As a special exclusive bonus, the newsstand edition of the new issue of Revolver contains limited-edition baseball cards of the “Big 4” bands of thrash metal—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax—who are set to play the historic first metal show ever at Yankee Stadium on September 14. The cards are modeled after the classic Topps baseball cards from 1986, the same year these four bands released their metal masterpieces. View the cards here.
For all this and more, check out the September/October issue of Revolver magazine, which is available on newsstands everywhere from August 16 to October 10, and online right here.
