The five members of the veteran San Francisco Bay Area metal band DEATH ANGEL are continuing to answer fan-submitted questions via a series of clips posted on their official YouTube channel. You can now see the latest footage below.

DEATH ANGEL will make their 1987 debut album, "The Ultra-Violence", available as a 25th-anniversary reissue after more than 10 years of being out of print. The CD will be released on June 6 at 6:00 a.m. PST exclusively at the official DEATH ANGEL webstore. Guitarist Rob Cavestany says, "Digitally remastered but not altered, it sounds leagues better than the original pressing yet retains every ounce of vibe, character and feel that we put into our first record.

"To coincide with this release we will be performing the full album in its entirety this summer on tour in Europe. Perhaps even select dates in other parts of the world... We shall see where this takes us.

"Hope you enjoy this blast from the past as we go 'old school' and bring Bay Area thrash in its most primal form from 1987 to 2012. Join us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of 'The Ultra-Violence'!"

"The Ultra-Violence" track listing:

01. Thrashers (Cavestany, Dennis Pepa) (7:09)
02. Evil Priest (Cavestany, Osegueda) (4:53)
03. Voracious Souls (Cavestany, Osegueda) (5:39)
04. Kill As One (Cavestany) (4:57)
05. The Ultra-Violence (instrumental) (Cavestany, Dennis Pepa) (10:32)
06. Mistress Of Pain (Cavestany) (4:03)
07. Final Death (Cavestany) (6:02)
08. I.P.F.S. (Cavestany) (1:54)

DEATH ANGEL recently joined forces with SEPULTURA, KRISIUN and HAVOK for a North American tour.

GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose halted a live concert this past Sunday night (May 20) at ECHO Arena in Liverpool, England after a plastic pint of liquid was thrown on stage during the group's performance. One minute into the concert's second number, "Welcome To The Jungle", Rose stopped his band and warned the crowd that he would pack up and leave if they continued "throw[ing] stuff."

"If you wanna throw stuff, we've got no problem going home," he said. "Otherwise we'd all love to have a good time tonight, right? So don't fark it up for your friends here tonight. Thank you very much. Let's start the song over."

GUNS N' ROSES reportedly took to the stage in Liverpool at 11:00 p.m. - after keeping fans waiting for two hours.

Because the ECHO Arena has a round-the-clock license, GUNS N' ROSES was allowed to keep playing and finished their set at approximately 1:55 a.m.

In her review of the Liverpool concert, Jade Wright of the Liverpool Echo wrote, "When a band keeps a packed arena waiting for two hours with no apology, they can't be too surprised when people show their disapproval."

Fan-filmed video footage of the above-mentioned incident is available below. (Note: Objects can be seen falling on the stage around the 1:40 mark.)

According to the Liverpool Echo, several audience members left before GUNS N' ROSES' set started.

Disabled fan Mark Pettersen, 48, had to leave after just two songs to get his train home.

"It was such a waste of time. I came out totally distressed." Pettersen told the Liverpool Echo. "It was a complete joke and a total disgrace. Someone in the crowd threw something at him and I understand because people were so frustrated. If I could have got up on stage, I would have ran him over in my mobility scooter, I was so upset."

GUNS N' ROSES' 2001 show at Rock In Rio saw the band take to the stage two hours late, and while the crowd waited patiently for them on that occasion, this has not been the case at other shows.

In 2010, organizers of the Reading festival in England pulled the plug on GUNS N' ROSES' PA, silencing them after they took to the stage an hour late and tried to overrun the event's curfew time by over half an hour.

GUNS N' ROSES' was reportedly fined $108,000 (£72,000) by officials at London's O2 Arena in October 2010 after Rose's late stage appearance meant he and his bandmates went over the venue's strict 11 p.m. curfew. The fans were so upset about GUNS N' ROSES' tardiness at the first of the two London shows that they were throwing things at Axl Rose. He told the audience not to be doing that because they could miss him and hit someone at the front of the stage by accident. They wouldn't want that to happen, he added. The concert organizers allowed them to play for the extra hour over curfew for two gigs.

At GUNS N' ROSES' lone U.S. concert appearance in 2010 in Sturgis, South Dakota, the crowd - composed largely of bikers - was forced to wait the usual two hours before Rose arrived. Rather than rioting, however, those in attendance either littered the stage with debris or simply left.

Professionally filmed video footage of LYNCH MOB's May 12 performance at the M3 Rock Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland can be seen below.

On June 19, Deadline Music/Cleopatra Records will release a special three-disc audio/video deluxe collection of LYNCH MOB's "REvolution". The set features the full-length studio album "REvolution" with killer, supercharged renditions of classic DOKKEN/LYNCH MOB tracks such as "Tooth And Nail", "Breaking The Chains", "Wicked Sensation" and more. It also includes professionally filmed live performances recorded during the 2005 "REvolution" tour, mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound.

LYNCH MOB's comeback album, "Smoke And Mirrors", was released in Europe on September 18, 2009 (October 13, 2009 in the U.S.) via Frontiers Records. The recording lineup on the CD included Lynch and singer Oni Logan alongside bassist Marco Mendoza (WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY) and drummer Scot Coogan (BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, ACE FREHLEY). Mendoza has since been replaced in LYNCH MOB's touring lineup by Robbie Crane (RATT).

Lynch has joined forces with fellow former/current DOKKEN members Jeff Pilson (bass) and Mick Brown (drums) in a new project called T&N (formerly TOOTH AND NAIL). The band's debut album is tentatively due later in the year. The CD will feature new original material as well as reworked versions of around five or six DOKKEN classics.

Lynch's eleventh solo album in nearly twenty years, "Kill All Control", was released last July via Rocket Science, Inc.

The third official trailer for "Phantom Antichrist", the new album from German thrash metal veterans KREATOR, can be seen below. Due on June 1 in Europe and June 5 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records, the CD was recorded at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with renowned producer Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, SOILWORK, DEVIN TOWNSEND, AMON AMARTH).

The cover artwork for the standard edition of "Phantom Antichrist" was created by Wes Benscoter (SLAYER, DIO, BLACK SABBATH) and can be seen below.

The limited edition of "Phantom Antichrist" will be made available as two-disc digipack, including a bonus DVD.

"Phantom Antichrist" formats:

- Jewel case CD *
- 2LP yellow vinyl *
- 2LP bi-colored vinyl (red/black): limited to 500 copies, hand-numbered *+
- 2LP picture vinyl **
- CD/DVD digi limited edition: 2 digipacks in a slipcase. **
- Limited mailorder edition: metallic box including CD/DVD digi limited edition, T-shirt, exclusive CD "Live In Wacken", poster, signing card, limited to 500 copies, hand-numbered **+

* = Featuring artwork by Wes Benscoter (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, SLAYER)
** = Featuring artwork by Jan Meininghaus
+ = only available at

The "Phantom Antichrist" video can be seen below. The clip was helmed by Poland's Grupa 13, which has previously worked with BEHEMOTH, ELUVEITIE, SONATA ARCTICA and DECAPITATED, among others.

Commented KREATOR guitarist/vocalist Mille Petrozza: "The clips produced by Grupa 13 are groundbreaking visual trips that justify the existence of music videos in this day and age. In support of the lyrical concept of our new album, I could not think of a better creative solution than a collaboration with these great visionaries."

He added, "Grupa 13 strikes again! The most apocalyptic video in the history of KREATOR is here!"

In a recent interview with Suicide Scriptures, Petrozza stated about "Phantom Antichrist", "We made sure that it contains all the trademarks that we're known for - crushing brutality, riffs that are very hard to play, lyrics that talk about things that I get angry about. You know, the full treatment, basically. We didn't try to do anything different. The only goal that we set for the band was we wanted to top everything that we'd done before and make this record an exciting record. That's always the main goal."

He added, "First off, we don't plan ahead too much. I take a long time to prepare the songs at home, in my little home studio, and then when I feel that have something lyrically and musically that I feel is good and exciting and powerful, then I play it to the other guys and then we discuss it. And we might come up with new ideas or we might arrange the songs differently, or we tear them apart and put them back together. It's a long process. We started this in the beginning of 2011, and we kept writing and rehearsing the songs until January 2012."

Regarding the lyrical themes covered on "Phantom Antichrist", Mille said, "Many things: injustice; the crisis in Greece; me thinking that religion is obsolete now in this day and age; personal things. I think the lyrics for 'From Flood Into Fire', they're very different, but it's very hard for me to explain what it's about. I want people to listen to it and leave room for their own imagination. I go to the movies all the time and I'm a big movie nerd, and I hate watching a 'making-of' [documentary featuring behind-the-scenes footage] before I go into a movie. So if I would explain the lyrics right now, [it would lose the magic]."

On the topic of the "Phantom Antichrist" artwork, Mille said, "I got in touch with [artist] Wes Benscoter in the middle of June last year and I gave him a couple of songtitles. And I told him that the album might be called 'Phantom Antichrist'. I already had the idea and I told him what the lyrics were about - it's all about the apocalypse, evil in the world... typical KREATOR topics that I always write about. I think he had 'Pleasure To Kill', and he knew about the band. I liked this AUTOPSY cover that he did, and then I found that he did a lot of great stuff for BLACK SABBATH, SLAYER and many, many bands. . . I talked to one of my colleagues that plays in a German band and he told me that he would draw, with a pencil, artworks and then he would give it to a professional artist. I don't have that much influence on the artwork. I think it's best to give an idea and maybe a title or something, maybe some music even... I think that's more of letting the artist be the artist. He needs to create the visual as we do with the music."

The "Phantom Antichrist" single was released April 20 on seven-inch colored vinyl and as a digital download via iTunes, Amazon and various other digital music providers. The release also includes the exclusive IRON MAIDEN cover "The Number Of The Beast".

TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider stars in a new commercial for Stanley Steemer, a U.S.-based company that provides carpet cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning, hardwood floor cleaning and air duct cleaning. The 30-second spot, which can be seen below, was filmed on March 29 in Dublin, Ohio and premiered this past weekend during the finale of NBC's "The Celebrity Apprentice", where Snider was a contestant.

Behind-the-scenes photos from the commercial shoot are available at this location.

In a recent interview wih Fox411, Snider admitted that he was dead broke not that many years after TWISTED SISTER hit it big. "Our heyday was 1984-85, and by '95 I was flat broke," he said. "It wasn't sudden; it was a gradual slide where you don't want to accept its happening. You convince yourself, 'Oh no, no it's going to get better.' We shopped in thrift stores, used coupons. We couldn't go into a 7/11 with our kids because we couldn't afford to buy them a piece of candy. It was crazy how broke we were."

He added, "You cannot imagine the humiliation and having to deny who you are. I'm like the Jay Leno of heavy metal, everyone recognizes me. Here I am in '95 leaving a thrift store because I don't want people saying, 'What are you doing here?'

"I would always look at the other stars who crashed and burned and say, 'That will never be me. I don't drink, I don't get high, I don't have a manager that rips me off. I don't have anyone that can put one over me,' and I didn't. I did it to myself.

"The ego that gets you to the top that convinces you that you'll make it, that same ego won't accept the warning signs. Your ego just won't let you act smartly. If I had regrouped and downscaled... But no, I just kept spending; I'm a rock star baby! Everything is going to be fine!"
