THE BIGGEST names, and the LOUDEST tracks – it could only mean one thing… KERRANG! THE ALBUM is back… and with a who’s who of rock, punk and metal for 2009 it’s ready to show the compilation world of Dance and R&B exactly what an album should sound like!

Spanning two explosive CDs, CD 1 focuses on rock and punk and includes the huge ‘Know Your Enemy’ by Green Day, Billy Talent’s new single ‘Rusted From The Rain’ and the raucous ‘Juggernauts’ by Enter Shikari. CD 2 hones in on the world of metal and features the monster ‘Sulfur’ by Download headliners Slipknot as well as the epic ‘Heroes Of Our Time’ by Dragonforce (as featured on Rock Band). Put simply, no other album comes close.

Kerrang! Editor Paul Brannigan had to say of the album…. “Kerrang! has changed the lives of three generations of rock fans across the globe... but we’re not about to wallow in nostalgia. We believe that our world has never been more alive, that right now it’s exploding with bands who make music that sparkles with energy, imagination and colour, music that pushes boundaries, kick-starts hearts and makes life worth living. Kerrang! The Album ‘09 is the new soundtrack to your life.”

With exclusive tracks from established acts such as My Chemical Romance, New Found Glory, Alexisonfire, Marilyn Manson, Gallows and a showcasing of the new breed with the likes of Ghost Of A Thousand, Outcry Collective and Rolo Tomassi, Kerrang! The Album ’09 really is the biggest, and the BEST compilation you could rock out to this year!
