Oakland Metal Bands Make Kirk Hammett’s Top 25 Albums of the Decade



No, not them. Oakland deathcore band All Shall Perish — or, specifically, its 2008 album Awaken the Dreamers — and Machine Head's The Blackening landed on Kirk Hammett’s top 25 albums of the decade, as published in Rolling Stone. That’ll surely be a nice profile boost for All Shall Perish, which embarks on a European tour in late January. The Metallica guitarist’s list also includes Radiohead’s Kid A, Gojira’s The Way of All Flesh, and Queens of the Stone Age’s Rated R. Lars weighs in, too.
