“My Life My Way”, the new album from New York hardcore legends AGNOSTIC FRONT, is available for
streaming in its entirety on the band’s Facebook page. Released on March 4 in Europe and due on March 22 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records, the CD was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. The effort features 13 new powerful and anthemic songs laid down by Erik Rutan (MADBALL, GOATWHORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, etc.) under the watchful guide of producer Freddy Cricien of MADBALL. The record was mastered by
Alan Douches at West West Side Music (SEPULTURA,SUFFOCATION, UNEARTH) in New Windsor, New York.
The “My Life My Way” cover artwork was brought to life this time by artist Todd Hubber, who also works with vocalist Roger Miret on designing his street wear clothing line American Made Kustom.
“The concept was to capture the D.I.Y. ethic and crude themed artistry of the early punk flyers, with a nod to the era of crime and pulp comic themes of the early ’50s,” says Hubber. “Society deemed those materials as having no social redeeming
values, and as a contributor to youth delinquency. Similarly outcasted were punk and hardcore in the early day for its aggressive, anti-authority message, and dangerous aura.”‘My Life My Way’ is a throwback to the early days, and AGNOSTIC FRONT has proven that what society deems unredeeming, has been, still is, and will continue to be relevant.”
“My Life My Way” track listing:
01. City Street
02. More Than a Memory
03. Us Against the World
04. My Life My Way
05. That’s Life
06. Self Pride
07. Until the Day I Die
08. Now and Forever
09. The Sacrifice
10.A Mi Manera
11. Your Worst Enemy
12. Empty Dreams
13. Time Has Come
Commented AGNOSTIC FRONT vocalist Roger Miret: “After all is said and done, we are amazed on how great our new record turned out! It’s by far our catchiest record to date and it’s going to make everyone want to sing along for sure. Freddy killed it on the production end, just capturing that hardcore vibe that only he can get
out of AGNOSTIC FRONT. The boys all put nothing but passion into the songs, and Erik Rutan just dialed it all in to make AGNOSTIC FRONT sound as natural and as organic as ever. This one will definitely be a classic
once it’s heard worldwide!”
METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett and legendary axeman Uli Jon Roth (ex-SCORPIONS) are the featured guests on the premiere episode of the seventh season of VH1 Classic‘s “That Metal Show”, which is
back in Los Angeles and ready to shake things up for on Saturday, March 19 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
During his appearance on the program, Hammett talked about the “Big Four” tour featuring performances by the so-called “Big Four” of 1980s thrash metal — METALLICA, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX and
SLAYER: “For me it’s a celebration,” he said. “We’ve all made it this far and we’re all established bands and all the little issues and points of contention that we had with each other back then was all a product of being just
young and immature and wanting to be number one. Now we’ve been around for 25 odd years or so and all that stuff doesn’t matter any more, and we can all look at each other and say, ‘We’ve accomplished a lot for metal and we should be
proud and let’s celebrate it together.”

According to OnSight.co.uk, after workflow planning for the three-day, 20-camera shoot, it was up to On Sight to make sure everything went smoothly. Axis Films took care of all HD cameras (including 15 REDs) as
well as the production equipment. Axis Films also supplied DITs to manage all of the digital rushes produced during the three sold-out shows. The seamless production was completed by the HD Lab who provided conform, online, mastering and deliverable services for Serpent Productions, who regularly work with some of the world’s best-known artists.
AC/DC singer Brian Johnson said in a recent interview that the band has no immediate plans following the set’s release, explaining, “We just want to have a rest, because we were on the road for two years. We played in front of five
million people, and we deserve a rest.”
Footage from AC/DC‘s Buenos Aires concerts was previously used in the video for the band’s classic album cut “Shoot To Thrill”, which served as the first single from AC/DC‘s “Iron Man 2” soundtrack (featuring catalog material from
the mid-1970s onwards). The video also incorporated exclusive footage from “Iron Man 2”.
The Buenos Aires concerts were part of AC/DC‘s highly acclaimed “Black Ice World Tour”, the second-highest-grossing world tour of 2009, according to concert industry trade publication Pollstar.
