Ottawa Citizen



The Big Read: A pretty fluffy look at the ‘hottest chicks in metal,’ including the likes of Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia, Bleeding Through’s Marta, Evanescenc­e’s Amy Lee and The Agonist’s Alissa White-Gluz, with each responding to set questions such as ‘Is it flattering, annoying or demeaning to be in an issue about the hottest babes in metal?’ and ‘What’s the best way to deal with a lunkhead in the crowd yelling "Show us your tits!"’ Top marks, though, to Julie Christmas, singer with both Made Out of Babies and Battle of Mice, who, when asked who was the ‘hottest dude’ in metal, responded: ‘Giacometti.’ Inside: A conference-call Q&A with Ozzy Osbourne and his guitarist Zakk Wylde, in which Revolver tries to ask about their upcoming album, and the pair simply reminisce with one another about their various excesses. Plus: An ‘in-depth’ profile of metal band Neurosis, as well as shorter ones of bands to watch, such as Brit punkers Gallows and Georgia-based ‘Christian tech-deathcore quartet’ Becoming the Archetype.
