Dave Grohl has said that writing and recording a ‘lost’ thrash metal album for his fictional band Dream Widow has been like “therapy” for his inner teenage metalhead.

The Foo Fighters frontman has been hard at work recording a tie-in metal album for the group’s new horror-comedy, Studio 666. The feature-length movie is currently in cinemas and sees the band play themselves as they make an ill-fated attempt to record their 10th album in a haunted mansion.
