Best Songs On Roadrunner United's All-Star Sessions

Roadrunner records put together an album with 4 "tram captains" who were put in charge of writing songs for the album. Those team captains were Matt Heafy (Trivium), Joey Jordison (Slipknot), Robb Flynn (Machine Head), and Dino Cazares (Fear Factory, Asesino, Divine Heresy). They picked some great muscians to play their songs and it turned out as one whole album of nothing but awesomeness. Each person wrote about 4 songs and I guess the label put in 2 other bonus songs with one featuring Mikael Åkerfeldt from Opeth. Well the bottom line is that this album has some great metal masterpieces of different sub genres.

He actually got King Diamond for this song! It's such a masterpiece with awesome guitar solos from Heafy and Corey Beaulieu. - MetalFoREVer1228

7 Independent (Voice of the Voiceless)

Flynn kept the same lineup (except vocals) for all of his songs, but that doesn't really matter. Max Cavalera destroyed this song (not in the bad way). - MetalFoREVer1228
