Matt Bellamy of Muse is the cover star of this edition of Kerrang, which promises to reveal his dark side.

In news, Joey Jordison of Slipknot is unmasked, as he reveals his sideband Murderdolls.

Kerrang looks at the best of the web, and with the World Cup ongoing, lists a website dedicated to ugly footballers as their website of the week.

Cover star Bellamy gets five pages, revealing that he brought ouija boards into school as a ten year old.

There is a look at actors trying to be rock stars, as Jack Black and Jared Leto have gone into the recording studio with their respective bands.

In album reviews, Dreamland by Robert Plant gets 3 out of 5.

In boxsets, both Buffy and spin-off show Angel both get 4 out of 5.

In upcoming concerts, Queens Of The Stone Age were gig of the week, while Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Vines were recommended.

Last week, too late to be included in last week’s Friday Five, the line-up for Belsonic was announced. Personally, i’ll be holding off until there are further announcements.

If I was going to go to one of the gigs announced so far, it would be the Kodaline/Tom Odell one. To be honest, i’m a bit surprised Tom Odell isn’t headlining that one instead of Kodaline.

Anyway, to get you in the mood for Belsonic, he’s a Top Five of the acts appearing.
