UNITED WE STAND

Published:

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!

MTV labelled the release “a testament to Roadrunner’s far-reaching impact on the genre”. And that’s exactly what it was.

Today you can watch the video for ‘(sic)’ live from that amazing night, which features Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Scott Ian of Anthrax. It’s an incredibly special performance, as it features both the late Paul Gray and Joey Jordison of Slipknot, capturing both legends in their element on stage.

Scott Ian confesses:

“It was incredible to be part of a lineup of such insanely heavy hitters. WOW! And to have had the opportunity to play with Joey and Paul that night, with Corey singing – definitely a Make-A-Wish moment for me.”

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.
