Looks like Judas Priest will have some competition for “Most Awesome Concept Album By A Metal Act That Really Has No Place Recording A Concept Album in 2008.” Alice Cooper’s Here Comes A Spider, out on July 29, will describe the life of a serial killer named Spider, who is killing people and taking their limbs in order to create a spider. Says Cooper, “Every song is sort of a letter to the police. They think they’re investigating it from the outside, but he’s actually woven them into the whole thing.” Also woven into the whole thing are frequent Alice Cooper album guest stars Slash and Ozzy Osbourne, who will play a harmonica part on a song the two co-wrote.

Song titles include “Catch Me, “Hungry,” “I Am The Spider,” “I Know Where You Live,” “(In Touch With) Your Feminine Side,” “Killed By Love,” “Salvation,” “The One That Got Away,” “Vengeance Is Mine,” “Wake The Dead,” and “Wrapped In Silk.” Cooper already has a world tour lined up to support the album, which will find him spend July in Europe and August in hitting state fairs and casinos throughout the west before playing a prodigious 25 dates in Canada! Fans in eight different Canadian provinces (sorry, Manitoba, P.E.I., and territories) will all have a chance to experience the thrills, chills and spills that Cooper will come up with to accompany the tale of young Spider and his murderous rampage. Too bad Ozzy can’t come along with his harp.
