It looks like Panic! At The Disco might start introducing some hardcore breakdowns into their tunes soon, with Brendon Urie revealing he wants to make a metal album.

It’s only been six months since Panic! At The Disco released their latest record, Pray For The Wicked, but it seems Brendon Urie is already thinking about the future, telling Rock Sound he’s got some new sounds in mind.

“I always feel as though I need to be more diverse,” Brendon Urie explained. “Yes, all of the Panic! albums do sound different and have their own vibe, their own aesthetic and imagery, but I still feel like I can do more.”

“Even from song to song within one album I feel like things could change even more drastically, and maybe that’ll happen as time goes on. I still have so many different things that I want to do, particularly in terms of genres.”

“I want to do a metal project in particular,” Brendon Urie continued. “I actually just played something for my band mates recently – we have an old song called ‘The Calendar’ and I made a metal version of it from years back. It’s like 90 seconds long and is really fun.”

“Who knows, I might even put that out on SoundCloud on a whim some time soon!”

Of course, we’re a long way from even thinking about getting these hardcore tracks, but it does have us thinking; what sort of image would Panic! At The Disco adopt for a metal album?

While we’re sure Brendon Urie might need to make some of the song titles a little bit more brutal, others it seems already have names that are perfectly suited for the metal genre…
