Ozzy Osbourne and Slash have recorded guest appearances on Alice Cooper's forthcoming album ALONG CAME A SPIDER.

The songs will be told through the voice of a serial killer named Spider, who Alice describes as "an arachnophobic psychopath".

Ozzy adds harmonica to a track he co-wrote with the School's Out star, while former Guns N Roses six stringer Slash adds guitar to the album

According to Uncut, the record will chronicle the life of the killer, who wraps his victims in a silk web.

On his radio show Nights With Alice Cooper, he said of the album: "It is a dark and menacing album for dark and menacing times"

He told Billboard.biz that the record is "a real 'Alice' album. Conceptually, it's going to be pretty interesting."

"Every song is sort of a letter to the police," he explains. "They think they're investigating it from the outside, but he's actually woven them into the whole thing."

The rock legend recently said his 1978 appearance on the Muppet Show was a "great experience", reports My Park.
