ROADRUNNER UNITED was a project pulled together by iconic hard rock record label Roadrunner Records to celebrate its 25th anniversary, culminating in the US Billboard Top 200, UK Official Albums and Australian ARIA Albums-charting original, The All Star Sessions. Four ‘team captains’ (Slipknot’s Joey Jordison, Machine Head’s Robb Flynn, Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares and Trivium’s Matthew K. Heafy) were chosen to lead 57 artists from 45 past-and-present Roadrunner bands. It was truly a heavy metal family affair – and then some!
Today, you can watch the live performance of the song “The Rich Man” here or via YouTube here.
The original track from The All-Star Sessions was penned by songwriting captain Robb Flynn and featured Corey Taylor on vocals; Jeff Waters and Jordan Whelan on guitar; Paul Gray on bass; and Andols Herrick on drums.
The star-studded event featured multiple musicians, both past and present, from Roadrunner bands – plus guest musicians that did not originally perform on the All-Star Sessions album.
The set list consisted of some of the most popular and famous songs released by Roadrunner Records, as well as some of the original songs from the project’s album. The “core band,” which performed on the majority of the songs, consisted of the aforementioned Cazares (Fear Factory), Adam Duce (now ex-Machine Head), the late Paul Gray (Slipknot), the late Joey Jordison (Slipknot, Murderdolls), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), and Roy Mayorga (Stone Sour, Hellyeah).
Now, both the original All-Star Sessions album and the concert performance itself will be made widely available in multiple configurations on 10th March 2023. Pre-orders for the concert album, which will be available on vinyl, CD, digitally, and presented in HD for the first time, are now live here.
Also watch footage of ‘The End (Live)’ here. Full details about formats for the live concert album and reissued original CD are detailed below.
