Roadrunner United Album And Live Set To Be Reissued In March

Roadrunner United, the project that was organized to commemorate Roadrunner Records’ 25th anniversary in 2005, are planning to reissue “The All-Star Sessions” next year. The record, which features members of Slipknot, Trivium, Fear Factory, Machine Head, and more, will be available on March 10. A live album featuring the project’s December 15, 2005 show at the Nokia Theatre in New York, NY will be available that day as well.

Trivium’s Matt Heafy commented:

“The Roadrunner United album was something I still have a hard time believing that it happened. A 19-year-old me being enlisted to be able to write anything I wanted… while picking a dream lineup of my favorite musicians every single every song? I am still honored and grateful to have been allowed this amazing experience. All I can say is… I want to do Part II.”

Machine Head’s Robb Flynn added:

“I had a couple of riffs left over from [2004 Machine Head album] Through the Ashes of Empires that I hadn’t ended up using, so brought them into play first-off for Roadrunner United. The song that really kicked it off for me was ‘The Dagger‘. I was like, ‘Man, this is a fucking banger. I don’t know if I even want to give this away!’ I actually told the label, ‘If you can lock in Howard [Jones] from Killswitch Engage to do the vocals, you can have it. Otherwise, I’m keeping it for Machine Head!’

We had so much fun when Howard flew in to record that song at my studio. He only had about three sentences of lyrics prepared, so we spent hours talking over what the song could be about, and then he freestyled a bunch. I remember him getting up, walking into the vocal booth, and just belting out this fucking insane scream, this screech! It became the sound that opens the whole record.”

Monster Magnet To Reissue “Monolithic Baby!” & “4-Way Diablo” In September

Monster Magnet will be reissuing “Monolithic Baby!” and “4-Way Diablo” on September 16. Both albums will be available on vinyl, CD, and digitally. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Dave Wyndorf commented:

“It’s great to see these two albums back in circulation again. The Monster Magnet universe isn’t complete without them! ‘Monolithic Baby!‘ is a big, glitzy (and purposefully cynical, but aren’t they all?) rock and roll record, and listening to it now reminds me of that time – the beginning of the 21st century. Even then I knew things were gonna get weird!

‘4 Way Diablo‘ is a collection of songs I wrote between tours in the early 2000s but couldn’t find a place for. They piled up fast, and pretty soon, there was an album. It turns out there’s some of my favorite Magnet songs there!“

Integrity Stream Remixed & Remastered Versions Of “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” & “Systems Overload”

Integrity have digitally reissued their first two albums, “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” and “Systems Overload.” Both records have been remixed and remastered by producer Arthur Rizk. “Those Who Fear Tomorrow” also includes new drums from Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Brandon Gallagher (Trace Amount). Fans can stream the records below and pre-order physical copies (out June 10) HERE.

Dwid Hellion commented:

“‘Those Who Fear Tomorrow‘ & ‘Systems Overload‘ were the first two albums released by Integrity.

Both albums were born from a variety of volatile concoctions, visceral emotions, countless inspirations, and unorthodox creative experimentations.

Ultimately, they were both born from our desire to create something comprised of all of our favorite bits and pieces, imaginatively collected from all of our favorite bands.

Aggressively collaged, conjured, stitched and Frankensteined all of our most passionate inspirations into these two musical monsters.

Decades after their initial inception, Relapse Records has unleashed these albums for a new and hungry audience to devour.

I hope that the albums will reveal our raw emotions and religious fervor. I hope that you can bear witness to the purity and unabashed honesty that we exorcized and captured within these recordings.

Outcasts, outsiders…these weapons were forged for us all.”

As you may remember, we asked you for help in putting together the first five box sets and, to make sure there’s a fan footprint on all of these releases, we’ll be doing that again!

We’re looking for anything and everything you might have from August 1995 through September 1998: live photos (taken by you!) or snaps from a meet & greet, flyers, ticket stubs, backstage passes, and whatever other mementos you may have from that time.
