How would you feel if we told you Dave Grohl, Corey Taylor, Randy Blythe and pretty much every other big name in thrash / metal are set to appear on one album?
Mike Dean, Reed Mullin and Randy Blythe
Teenage Time Killer is a new hardcore / thrash project, dreamt up by Corrosion Of Conformity tag team Mike Dean and Reed Mullin. The project has been rumoured for a while, but we now know they've inked a proper deal with Rise Records for their debut album.
What's MOST exciting about the project, though, is who else is involved with it. Firstly, the instrumental parts of the album were recorded at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 (on the famous Sound City mixing board) and has been mastered by Bill Stevenson (him of Descendents / Black Flag fame).
It gets better. The whole project is basically a who's-who of the metal / hardcore scene. Just LOOK at the list of names set to appear on the album:
Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Slipknot / Stone Sour's Corey Taylor Clutch's Neil Fallon Dead Kennedys' Jello Biafra Fear's Lee Ving Prong's Tommy Victor Mondo Generator / Kyuss / QOTSA's Nick Oliveri Red Fang's Aaron Beam Scream / Goatsnake's Pete Stahl SUNN O))) / Goatsnake's Greg Anderson
ex-Corrosion Of Conformity man Karl Agell My Ruin's Tairrie B. Murphy and Mick Murphy Articles Of Faith's Vic Bond BL'AST!'s Clifford Dinsmore Brujeria's Pat Hoeb Municipal Waste / Iron Reagan's Tony Foresta Misfts' Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein Black Flag's Keith Morris Sacred Reich's Phil Ring
As we understand it, the band have no proper touring plans as yet, but in an interview with Indy Week, Reed Mullin has said the following:
“Dave Grohl’s folks, his management and marketing people, are going to help us do all that. We recorded about 98% of it at his studio.
“Since there’s so many people from so many different bands, maybe we could do something like US show Jimmy Kimmel Live! and have three or four different singers come out at one time, like Jello and Lee Ving – maybe Randy from Lamb Of God.
“All the songs are real short so we could easily do four songs and not go over time. We’d have Brian Baker come out and play guitar, Pat Smear play bass or guitar. It’s pretty star-studded.”
Yeah, we'd watch that.
As soon as we have more info on the album, you'll hear about it!
