Hard rock kings (and Queens): Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool and How to Destroy Angels
After a string of reissues, desert rockers Queens of the Stone Age hope to prove that they've still got it on their first album since '07's underrated "Era Vulgaris," while Metallica are ditching their new BFF Lou Reed for their untitled upcoming full-length. Tool is also releasing their first album in 6 years. Nine Inch Nails frontman will take a break from scoring David Fincher films to focus on his latest venture with his singer-wife Mariqueen Maandig, How to Destroy Angels, whose debut album should appear early in the year. Fincher's latest "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" features a new HtDA song, by the way.
