AC/DC: 'Rock Or Bust' Video Premiere
The official video for the title track of the new AC/DC album, "Rock Or Bust", can be seen below. The clip was shot October 3-4 with director David Mallet at Black Island Studios in Middlesex, England. Mallet has worked with the band for 24 years and says: "They have never come out with any pretense to be anything else than the best rock and roll band in the world." "Rock Or Bust" is scheduled for release on December 2. The CD was recorded in Vancouver, Canada earlier this year. AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was missing from the band's new publicity photo and was also a no-show at the group's video shoot for "Play Ball" and "Rock Or Bust". Rudd was replaced for the filming by drummer Bob Richards (who had previously played with SHOGUN and IRON MAIDEN guitarist Adrian Smith), with singer Brian Johnson reportedly telling fans at the shoot that Rudd was unable to participate due to an undisclosed "family emergency." On November 6, Rudd was charged with attempting to "procure murder" by New Zealand police but the charge was dropped a day later by the Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones after a meeting with Rudd's attorney, Paul Mabey, and police. Mabey said that Hollister-Jones reviewed the case and concluded that "there was insufficient evidence to justify that charge. He has now withdrawn the charge." Rudd must return to court on November 27, where he still faces one charge of threatening to kill as well as possession of meth and marijuana, which his lawyer described as "minor." Mabey added that Rudd had "suffered unnecessary and extremely damaging publicity as a result of widespread and sensational reporting of a very serious allegation, which on any basis was never justified." The 60-year-old drummer was alleged to have tried to hire a hitman to kill two men in late September. Rudd's arrest was the second major blow to AC/DC in 2014. Founding guitarist Malcolm Young was forced to leave the band earlier this year because he is afflicted with dementia. His replacement on the album and the band's upcoming world tour will be Stevie Young, nephew of Malcolm and AC/DC guitarist Angus Young. The band officially announced in September that Malcolm would not be returning to the lineup. Stevie Young played with AC/DC once before during a 1988 tour, while Malcolm stepped out to deal with his dependency on alcohol.

EXODUS' TOM HUNTING: 'We're Happy With All The Music That We Made With ROB DUKES'
Jay Nanda of San Antonio Metal Music Examiner conducted an interview with drummer Tom Hunting of San Francisco Bay Area thrashers EXODUS on November 18 in Austin, Texas during the band's tour with SLAYER and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES. You can now listen to the chat using the SoundCloud widget below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). On sharing the stage with former EXODUS drummer Paul Bostaph, who last year rejoined SLAYER: "I love Paul Bostaph; he's awesome. He's an amazing drummer. The stuff he did on [the 2005 EXODUS album] 'Shovel Headed Kill Machine' was absolutely fantastic. And when we're doing a headlining set, I have to go out and emulate some of the shit he did from that [album]. It's not easy. He's machine. [Laughs]" On why they chose to thank former EXODUS members Rob Dukes (vocals) and Rick Hunolt (guitar) in the credits for the new EXODUS album, "Blood In Blood Out": "We're happy with all the music that we made with Dukes. I think it's kind of screwed up that we were at an impasse when it came to making this album with him. But it was album No. 10 and it needed to be special. But we love those guys. We love all the music that we created with Dukes singing, and obviously, Rick's a big part of the history of this band as well." "Blood In Blood Out" sold around 8,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 38 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released in North America on October 14 via Nuclear Blast, the CD art was illustrated by Swedish artist Pär Olofsson, known worldwide for his incredible renderings that have graced the covers of countless heavy metal albums, including EXODUS' "Let There Be Blood". "Blood In Blood Out" is EXODUS' first album since the departure of Dukes, and the return of his predecessor, Steve "Zetro" Souza, who previously fronted EXODUS from 1986 to 1993 and from 2002 to 2004.
