ETID, Fall Out Boy, Anthrax metal side-project

Tuesday, November 24, 2009 2:40 PM PT

According to Rock Sound magazine, members of Every Time I Die, Fall Out Boy, and Anthrax have joined forces to form a metal group called The Damned Things. The band reportedly includes Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley, Fall Out Boy's Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman, in addition to Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano of Anthrax. More than a dozen songs have been written thus far and Trohman had the following to say:

"Scott's right hand is the reason I got into playing punk rock, hardcore and metal! Having Keith as part of the mix is insane, we all know he writes incredible lyrics but he is also a really good singer. That is showcased in Every Time I Die, but we want him to go more into singing than screaming on this project."

Meanwhile, Ian comments: "We just started working on songs together and I really dug it. It just felt really good. From there we decided that obviously both of us are pretty busy in our day jobs but let's see what we can do with this. Even if it takes us five years to make a record, why not? It's super fun and it's something that we do totally take seriously because we love the music we've created. People think of Fall Out Boy and they think of Pete Wentz and Patrick. These two guys, man, they're fucking hardcore dudes. Joe writes some amazing riffs. We have this song called 'A Great Reckoning' that I swear to God, this song could be on any Thin Lizzy record. He fucking blew my mind with this song and I just can't wait for people to hear it."

Pete from Fall Out Boy long ago used to fill-in and play for Creation is Crucifixion, which always surprised me.

11/24/2009 5:51:12 PM
uuhhhhh, what a strange combination. Seems like it might be cool but more than likely it will just be more radio punk rock pop shit.

11/24/2009 6:38:59 PM
I'm stoked for this. It will be interesting hearing Keith in a different environment.

11/24/2009 7:32:08 PM
im not going to judge this til i hear it but the words "this has to be a joke" vomited out of my mouth when i read this headline.

11/24/2009 8:36:04 PM
signed instantly w/o any recordings because of who's in the band. will be interesting though, but they should have went for Mariah Carey as the singer, she can hit some brutal highs!

fall out boy members trying to convince themselves the fact that they sold the fck out years ago hasn't compromised their artistic integrity.
