Slipknot's long-awaited seventh LP, The End, So Far, releases on September 30. Ahead of that release—surely the most anticipated of the year—the legendary metal band's guitarists get the Australian Guitar cover treatment, terrorizing unwitting children in newsagents the country around. (Sorry, parents, but worse appears on videogame magazines, right?)
Elsewhere in the issue, we chat with Tash Sultana about her MTV Unplugged album (spoiler: it's not all unplugged), as well as the usual embarrassment of interviews, including artists like Dune Rats, Parkway Drive, Julia Jacklin, Beddy Rays, Stella Donnelly... the artists, they did speak.
This issue also has a big feature of Ernie Ball, as well as lessons on how to nail an acoustic performance. Reviews include the latest gear from Sterling by Music Man through to Fender, Blackstar, Vox and Cort.
