Fall Out Boy members go Metal with ETID and Anthrax

Yes that is right, with the split of Fall Out Boy the question remained “What next for the kings of emo?”

What came next was the formation of The Damned Things, a new metal group consisting of members of Fall Out Boy, Anthrax and Every Time I Die.

The line-up for the band features:

Keith Buckley – Every Time I Die
Joe Trohman – Fall Out Boy
Andy Hurley – Fall Out Boy
Scott Ian – Anthrax
Rob Caggiano – Antrax
David Karon

This won’t be the first time Keith Buckley has performed with the members of Fall Out Boy having previously joined them on stage at a secret show in Buffalo to do a cover of Pantera’s song Walk.

Talking to Rock Sound:

“We just started working on songs together and I really dug it,” Scott exclusively revealed to Rock Sound. “It just felt really good. From there we decided that obviously both of us are pretty busy in our day jobs but let’s see what we can do with this. Even if it takes us five years to make a record, why not?

“It’s super fun and it’s something that we do totally take seriously because we love the music we’ve created. People think of Fall Out Boy and they think of Pete Wentz and Patrick. These two guys, man, they’re fucking hardcore dudes. Joe writes some amazing riffs. We have this song called ‘A Great Reckoning’ that I swear to God, this song could be on any Thin Lizzy record. He fucking blew my mind with this song and I just can’t wait for people to hear it.”

Commenting on the project, Joe told Rock Sound: “Scott’s right hand is the reason I got into playing punk rock, hardcore and metal! Having Keith as part of the mix is insane, we all know he writes incredible lyrics but he is also a really good singer. That is showcased in Every Time I Die, but we want him to go more into singing than screaming on this project.”

I, for one, am excited to see how this new formation works out.

With 15 songs already written, demoed and scheduled to be recorded before Christmas, we are all in store for a treat in the 2010.

Keep an eye on their new MySpace page for songs.
