Welcome to our weekly playlist of new rock music streams from across the internet.
You're in luck this week, because almost every entry in this playlist is from a major artist. Maybe they should talk to each other and arrange to stagger these preview releases, but right now we don't mind because it's riff heaven up here.
We're opening with an unexpected stream of Axl Rose's pre-Guns N' Roses band Rapidfire. Take this a a point-of-interest stream rather than an official UG recommendation. Then there's a hint of new orchestral material from Avenged Sevenfold, a full album stream from emo heroes Jimmy Eat World, a huge premiere - a brand new Nine Inch Nails single and a run of classic metal acts to enjoy.
You might be asking where our usual rundown of great new underground acts has gone. Don't fret; we'll be back with some great new music tips next week, but there's one treat at the bottom from new prog band the Custodian. Sounds like they're set for great things by our ears - let us know what you think in the comments.
Axl Rose before Guns N' Roses
Before Gn'R, Axl Rose fronted the '80s band Rapidfire. Three decades later, a preview of their unreleased demo songs have appeared online thanks to the guitarist who wants to sell them if there's enough interest from fans. It's certainly no Gn'R - would you want to hear more?
Avenged Sevenfold reveal new material snippet
The band are holding their cards very close to their chests, and only revealing the occasional preview of new material. This one-minute video clip features studio footage and some orchestral-inspired rock audio. What do you think?
Nine Inch Nails - "Came Back Haunted"
New single - "Came Back Haunted". New album - "Hesitation Marks". The old name - Nine Inch Nails. There was no chance we would miss it. Do you feel excitement in the air?
Jimmy Eat World "Damage" [FULL ALBUM]
Hooray, a full album stream! What better way to get to know a band? Jimmy Eat World went analog on this album to avoid the cut-and-paste precision of digital studios, and the resulting live vibe takes them right back to their proper emo roots. How does it rank in their discography for you?
Megadeth "Built For War"
Several tracks have been released from the new Megadeth record "Super Collider" but they've seen a mixed reaction so far. Where do you stand?
Newsted "Heroic Dose"
Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted will release the debut "Heavy Metal Music" by his new lineup on August 6.
Another preview track from their forthcoming Todd La Torre-fronted album, out on June 25.
Electronic music would rarely swing into a UG playlist unless it were backed by industrial explosions and war cries, but Beck has proved his salt as a guitarist and all-round musician and this new electronic ditty is a grooving pleasure.
The Custodian "Other People's Lives"
Fascinating prog rock from this new London band. Their debut album "Necessary Wasted Time" will be out later this year.
