Steve Vai and Bryan May to Appear on Meat Loaf's Album

An interesting news arrives from Meat Loaf as the musicians is about to release a new album that includes some big names in the music world including two guitar legends, Bryan May and Steve Vai. The two guitarist along with other renown musicians surely makes Meat Loaf's upcoming record titled "Hang Cool Teddy Bear" something worth waiting for as it will be dropped on May 11.

For the upcoming record Steve will be appearing and giving his contribution in a song titled "Love Is Not Real" while Bryan is contributing on two tracks, which is "Love Is Not Real" with Vai and also "Song Of Madness". Aside from those two, other musicians that helped out on the record are, Kara DioGuardi, Jack Black, Justin Hawkins and many more.

Commenting about his new album Meat Loaf said t the press, "I wanted it big, I wanted it dramatic, I wanted a rock record. Yes, it sounds like a Meat Loaf record. But it sounds different too: it sounds new, it sounds fresh. It speaks to you in a different way." Moreover the musician also revealed that the new album actually has a bigger concept which is inspired by a short story written by his longtime friend Killian Kerwin.

Telling about the connection between the story and the concept of his album Meat Loaf stated to the press saying, "It's the story of a soldier, He's been in battle and he's lying face down on the ground. He can't move, but he turns his head and starts to see blood run across the ground, and so he thinks he's going to die. They always say you see your life flash backward when you're about to die. But his life flashes forward — into what possibly could happen. He sees what his life could be: the good and the bad. The songs are the different scenarios he finds himself in. It's not always the same time or the same place, but it's always the same woman. But I don't want to give too much away. I want people to work it out for themselves."

Personally I am looking forward in hearing this new record that will be dropped under Roadrunner Records, as Meat Loaf always offers exciting songs that combines rocking music with strong lyrics. Not only that with the addition of Steve and Bryan in some of the songs it would surely be more exciting as the quality of the music would definitely shouldn't be questioned.
