METAL HAMMER TO RELEASE TRIBUTE ALBUMS TO BLACK SABBATH, AC/DC AND JUDAS PRIEST
Britain's Metal Hammer magazine will be releasing three tribute albums later this year to celebrate the anniversaries of some of the biggest albums in Heavy Metal and Hard Rock.
A Black Sabbath tribute album will be released to celebrate fourty years since the band released their debut album 'Black Sabbath' and will feature performances from Turisas, Electric Wizard and Apocalyptica, who have confirmed that they will be covering the song 'Spiral Architect'.
The magazine will also release a tribute to AC/DC's 'Back In Black' album, which was originally released in 1980. This will include covers by Steel Panther and Skindred, plus many others. Skindred has revealed that they will be covering the song 'Back In Black'.
The third part of the trilogy will be a tribute album of Judas Priest songs and will be issued to celebrate thirty years since the band broke into the mainstream with their 'British Steel' album.
White Wizzard have been confirmed for the album, as have Trigger The Bloodshed who will be performing a rendition of the song 'Rapid Fire'.
