Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump has some words of caution, before sharing the two records from the band's history that he feels most mirror the sound and spirit of what they've created for the upcoming set, So Much (for) Stardust. I used to work at a used record store, which is different than a regular record store, because in a used record store you see everybody’s failures (laughs). It’s the ones they don’t want, so I got really acquainted with bands’ careers and legacies and how artists ebb and flow, rise and fall. It has nothing to do with getting back to the style, this is not a throwback record in that way. And I was really hoping he would work with us again because I wanted that.”That said, Stump says he's satisfied with the album regardless of the outcome.
In some cases yes, but it appears that Pitchfork's consideration toward Greta Van Fleet's 2018 debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, has not wavered over time. He added, "[Greta Van Fleet] care so deeply and are so precious with their half-baked boomer fetishism, they mollycoddled every impulse of late-’60s rock ‘n’ roll into an interminable 49-minute drag. Was the Pitchfork review on the nose or too harsh? Having plenty of time to sit with the album, what would be your review now?

Earlier in December, in an interview with Metal Hammer, Cronos said the chances of a reunion of the classic power trio were "less than zero." Meanwhile, classic Venom members Mantas (guitar, real name Jeff Dunn) and Abaddon (drums, real name Antony Bray) formed Venom Inc. in 2015 with Demolition Man (bass and vocals, real name Tony Dolan). Demolition Man replaced Cronos in Venom from 1989 through 1992 and contributed to three albums — Prime Evil, Temples of Ice and The Waste Lands. "It wasn't fucking Cronos who put that reunion period together," the guitarist insists. It looks like fans will have to continue to see Venom and Venom Inc. if they want to see Cronos and/or Mantas play those classic songs live.1 month ago Loudwire
