Meat not loafing around with next album

It’s no accident that Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell, released back in 1977, still sells an annual 200,000 copies a year and spent nine years on the chart. The man born Marvin Aday has got the deep, visceral vocal talent to craft such an operatic, Herculean effect. And now he furthers his rock god persona by being a real diva with the details of his next album.

While Meat is keeping his lips sealed regarding his newest album since 2006’s Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose, he did recently share a few tidbits to Billboard. Here’s what we do know: The album is “about 50 percent” done. The man at the board will be Rob Cavallo, who has done work for everyone from Green Day to Kid Rock. Lastly, Queen guitarist Brian May will make an appearance with a ripping guitar solo. As for anything else, your guess is as good as ours. All we know is that hopefully we won’t miss Jim Steinman.

Expect the album sometime in 2010. Those amongst us who have a little cash and fleeting dreams of rock stardom that slowly die a little each day are in luck. Meat Loaf will be a headline counselor at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp from November 17-22 in Hollywood, California. If you’re not able to kneel at the alter of Meat, enjoy some old-fashioned, premarital sex rock below!
