Grohl Comes To Aid Of Massachusetts Metal Act

Rocker DAVE GROHL has been hailed the unlikely inspiration for SHADOWS FALL's debut album after surprising the group with an impromptu visit during a recent recording session. The metal band borrowed the drummer's Studio 606 in Northridge, California to record 13 tracks for their major-label debut THREADS OF LIFE. But frontman BRIAN FAIR admits the group were struggling until the FOO FIGHTERS star's unexpected visit with a bottle of Icelandic schnapps. Fair tells MTV, "It still blows my mind when, randomly, Dave Grohl pops in with a bottle and he's like, 'Hey dudes - we're partying.' "It's cool just sitting around, talking old DC hardcore. And he's just stoked to have a metal band recording in his studio. "He comes by and hangs out, and rocks out to what we're doing."
