Plan B To Release Metal Album

British singer, rapper, actor and director Ben Drew, best known to the public as Plan B, has announced that he is planning to record a heavy metal album by the end of the year. Drew is well known for his varied approach to writing music, with rap and soul albums under his belt already, along with his collaborations with drum and bass stars Chase & Status plus reggae and dupstep records to follow, Drew has already proved that his artistic palette isn’t limited to one colour, but is he suited for metal music?

"I think heavy metal really does have it’s place in my music, why shouldn’t it?" Drew asked. "It’s raw, emotional, it’s got meaning, so naturally it’s something I feel I can do. Metal musicians are really dedicated to their art, which you have to respect even if you don’t like the music."

The question remains though, will metal fans accept Drew in their world?

"I don’t really care if they do or not to be honest." he responded, "For me, this is about being an artist, being creative, I’m not out to become the new Iron Maiden or whatever. Obviously I hope people will like it and that the album does well does well, but ultimately it’s about satisfying myself and taking risks, which I think any true musician should do. I’m gonna be getting some guests on the album too from the metal world to help me understand the song writing and that better, plus lay down some wicked tracks."

Drew was reluctant to divulge any more information about the album but acknowledges that it could be a while before it hits the shelves.

"As I said, I wanna get it done by the end of the year, but I’ve got at least two more albums and Ill Manors, my first film that I’ve written and directed, to finish yet, plus touring, so we’ll see how time treats me."
