In a new video posted on AC/DC’s YouTube channel, the band shared some more behind the scenes clips from the making of their upcoming new album Power Up. Angus described the album as a tribute to his late brother, founding AC/DC rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who died in 2017 from effects of dementia at age 64. Malcolm is credited as a writer on all 12 tracks on Power Up. This is the second album in the band’s career that is a tribute to a fallen member. Back In Black (review here), which turned 40 this summer, was a tribute to former frontman Bon Scott who died prior to the album. The band shared their new single, “Shot In The Dark” last week.
Ghost Cult scribe Duncan Evans caught up by phone with singer-songwriter Henry Derek Elis for an interview about his new covers EP, All The Pretty Little Horses. Henry is best known as the former vocalist for metal bands Scar The Martyr and Act of Defiance, but his solo career has taken him down a path closer to Outlaw Country, Americana, and Dark Folk. Henry chatted about the new EP, his choice of artists to cover such as Danzig and Billy Idol, the difference between his metal music and solo career, his take on how watered-down “folk” music has become his influences and opinions of classic artists, and much more.
