Chinese DemocracyAccording to ex-Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach in a recent interview with Metal Edge, Axl Rose’s long long long-delayed album Chinese Democracy is actually going to be a multi-album concept piece:

One of my favorite songs — I asked Axl if I could mention the song titles and he said “Fine” — and one of my favorite songs is this song called “The General”, which is so… it’s by far the heaviest metal tune I think I’ve ever heard Axl do, this slow, grinding riff with these high, piercing vocals, screaming vocals. I was like, “When is this coming out?” And he said “2012” I was like, “Dude, you’re killin’ me!” He goes, “Well, this comes out on the third record. It relates to this song, it’s a trilogy, this goes with this lyrically.” He’s got it all figured out, he’s just different than other people. He does things on his own time, in his own way, but you know…the world’s not prepared for what I’ve heard from this guy.

Bach also says that the six songs that leaked earlier this year aren’t the final versions. As previously reported, Axl Rose contributes vocals to three songs on Sebastian Bach’s new record Angel Down which comes out on November 20. Is it just me, or does the inclusion of Axl Rose on this project seem like it’s making things more about Axl than Baz? I guess any press is good press for a guy that makes an ass out of himself on Celebrity Rap Superstar.
