Another track from the upcoming ROADRUNNER UNITED "The All-Star Sessions" CD, entitled "In the Fire", has been made available for streaming at Roadrun.com.

This full-length release, in stores on October 11, 2005, is a "master class" in hard rock/metal. Boasting 55 artists from 42 of Roadrunner's past and present bands, the album will contain original tracks that are collaborations between numerous Roadrunner stars.

Four central musicians were originally chosen to produce and write the songs. Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT), Dino Cazares (ex-FEAR FACTORY/BRUJERIA), Robert Flynn (MACHINE HEAD) and Matthew Heafy (TRIVIUM). These four musicians play on the songs they have written and have also assembled a unique team of artists to appear on each track. In order to cover as wide a spectrum as possible, no musician has played for more than one writer/producer and each song features a different vocalist.

Written and produced by Heafy, "In the Fire" features King Diamond (KING DIAMOND, MERCYFUL FATE) on vocals, Mike D'Antonio (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) on bass, Dave Chavarri (ILL NINO) on drums, and Heafy on lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars.

i really dont like roadrunner records that much there were only a few good bands like mercyful fate/king diamond and sepultura. roadrunner has a buch of mallcore bands and nikelback for god sake. if i had a band we would NEVER sign to roadrunner we would sign to a better label like megaforce records(anthrax,testament,metallica) or combat(possessed,exodus,megadeth).

Roadrunner have four bands that don't completely suck. Opeth, Machine Head, Cradle of Filth and Nightwish. And even out of those only Opeth are really good.

And I fail to see what the point of signing Korn or Disturbed would be ghost.

The only terrible song on all star sessions was "No way out." And Roadrunner records does have some good bands signed, Devildriver, Machine Head and Fear Factory are f***ing awesome bands. Ok, i'm done.
