According to Launch Radio Networks, an ALICE IN CHAINS tribute album is reportedly in the works from Bullygoat Records, the label formed by MUDVAYNE
singer Chad Gray. The project will apparently be titled "We Pay Our Debt Sometimes: A Tribute To Alice In Chains" and is slated to feature
contributions from MUDVAYNE, COLD, AUDIOSLAVE, BREAKING BENJAMIN and others. ALICE IN CHAINS guitarist Jerry Cantrell will reportedly contribute a
track with his "cover" band, CARDBOARD VAMPYRES, and will also collaborate with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY guitarist Zakk Wylde and DAMAGEPLAN singer
Patrick Lachman on two songs.
Former ALICE IN CHAINS bassist Mike Inez and drummer Sean Kinney are also on board as musical consultants.
No release date has been set for the album. Bullygoat Records is distributed through the Warner Music Group.
The tentative track listing is:
MUDVAYNE - "Bleed The Freak"
COLD - "Junkhead"
CARDBOARD VAMPYRES - "Don't Follow"
STATIC-X - "Again"
BREAKING BENJAMIN - "Would?"
PATRICK LACHMAN / JERRY CANTRELL - "Sea Of Sorrow"
AARON LEWIS (STAIND) - "Am I Inside"
BLOODSIMPLE - "Rain When I Die"
PUDDLE OF MUDD - "I Stay Away"
MARK LANEGAN / MIKE MCCREADY - "Frogs"
ADEMA - "Nutshell"
AUDIOSLAVE - "Rooster"
ZAKK WYLDE / JERRY CANTRELL - "Heaven Beside You"
Whoa, the line up is extremely dissipointing, I can't believe those loser bands are covering such great songs! They're going to ruin some of the
greatest grunge songs of all time, and the thing that bothers me is that there are other amazing songs that would have been nicer to see on the
tribute, like, Man In The Box, We Die Young and even Them Bones!
As for the line up, i'm only looking forward to Chris Cornell - (Audioslave), I think he could great job singing Rooster. And Zakk Wylde/Jerry
Cantrell (For obvious reason). Though I am not a big fan of Staind, I think Aaron Lewis could do a decent cover of 'Am I Inside', some of Aaron's
vocals are impressive, and definetly make him worthly of covering the song. Aaron is very AIC inspired and has a song on their album '14 Shades of
Gray' called 'Layne' which is a song dedicated to the Lead singer of Alice In Chains, Layne Stanley, who died in 2002 from drug overdose. As for
the rest - Blah.
This will be downloaded, that's for sure.
