Fireball Ministry have shared their stripped-down cover of Motörhead’s “I Don’t Believe A Word,” via Revolver. This song appears on the band’s new album “Remember The Story,” which will be released on October 6. James A. Rota commented:
“I thought it would be a fitting tribute on this record for us to do the song stripped down to pay tribute to Lemmy, and try to show the world what a great songwriter he really was. Great songs always seem to translate no matter how you interpret them. That said, I bet he would hate this version, but hopefully not!”

Soundgarden’s Matt Cameron was recently interviewed by Billboard about his solo album “Cavedweller,” and during the chat he talked a bit about the tragic death of Chris Cornell. He said the following:
“I don’t think we’re [Soundgarden] ready to say anything other than…Kim [Thayil] and Ben [Shepherd] and I are certainly aware of how much our fans are hurting, and we’re certainly hurting right there along with them. But we’re extremely private people, and we’re all still processing our grief in our own way and on our own time. But we definitely are thinking of our fans and love them very much.”
In other news, Cameron has also released a new lyric video for “Time Can’t Wait”:
It has been revealed that ex-Shining guitarist Euge Valovirta has joined CyHra. That group also features former In Flames members Jesper Strömblad and Peter Iwers, Jake E (ex-Amaranthe) and Alex Landenburg (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody). The band’s debut album “Letters To Myself” will be released on October 20.
“We’re thrilled to inform that Finnish guitarist Euge Valovirta will be joining CYHRA as our fifth member!
“Euge has already contributed to our forthcoming new album, ‘Letters To Myself’, by playing twin guitars and solos, and he’ll be shredding with us live as well.
“During rehearsals, it became obvious that we would need two guitars to reproduce the songs in a live setting, so we decided to ask our good friend and amazing guitarist Euge Valovirta to join CYHRA. Euge had already done a killer job on the album and we can’t wait to share the stages of the world with him.”
Valovirta himself added:
“I feel very honored and excited to be part of this amazing band together with these talented and professional guys and I look forward to kick some serious ass on stage on our upcoming tours. I’d like to welcome all our current and future fans to our shows; it will be ass-kicking juicy! Oh, and the album is amazing too!”

“I finished doing the vocals on September 20th, and Andy Sneap is mixing it at the moment. It sounds really good. There are no big surprises on the CD. We haven’t turned into Lady Gaga. [Laughs] I like Lady Gaga, as it’s a bit of a compliment. We haven’t changed into a different kind of band.”
