Today sees the launch of the eagerly awaited album Bill Bailey In Metal, a collection of nine solid rock tracks that were forged for Bill’s headline set in the fiery furnace of the Saturn Stage at Sonisphere 2011. Each of these pieces were then hammered into shape in the studio furnace using the voodoo brilliance of a superb band of musical sorcerers..
The track listing is as follows:
Leg of Time (Metal Version)
Love Song (Metal Version)
Apocalyptic News (Metal Version)
Scarborough Fair (Rammstein Style)
Cars (Metal Version)
Das Hokey Kokey (Metal Version)
Oblivion (Metal Version)
Pot Plant Elegy (Metal Version)

Bill Bailey in Metal should delight both metal and non-metal fans alike as Bill blends his inimitable genre-fusing, with foreign language frolics and meaningful whimsy. These new full studio versions of Bill’s most popular songs are accompanied by two instrumentals in the shape of Lazer Gazer and Pot Plant Elegy (Metal Version), tracks that usually form the musical soundtrack to the short films that have been a regular feature of Bill’s stage show. During the rehearsals for these sessions Bill’s band expanded and twisted these pieces so brilliantly he just knew that they should be included on the album.
Bill is delighted with this album as he believes that he has finally captured these songs as he has always heard them in his head.
Oh and make sure you don’t miss this intimate insight into the album’s recording process on YouTube.
Who stole the Leg of Time?
There’s a Bomb in The Bunker. One of pure Bliss.
