According to Billy Sloan from, AC/DC guitarist Angus Young has told how the title of their new album was inspired by his native Scotland. The Aussie supergroup will shoot straight to No. 1 tonight with Black Ice.

Angus, who formed the band with brother Malcolm, says the title reminds him of early days gigging in winter.

The pair were brought up in Cranhill, Glasgow, before emigrating in 1963.

Angus said: "It rolled off the tongue - it reminds me of radio warnings up north of black ice. It was deadly stuff."

Singer Brian Johnson feared the album would not happen after an eight year gap since their last release.

But he added: "On the first track the hairs on my arms stood up. I thought, 'is this a good band or what?'"
