BEHEMOTH Frontman Releases Statement Regarding Illness, Tour Cancellations

August 9th, 2010
by EvilG

Guitarist/vocalist Adam “Nergal” Darski of Polish extreme metallers BEHEMOTH, who was reportedly rushed to the Gdansk Medical University Hospital over the weekend to receive treatment for an undisclosed illness, has released the following English-language statement regarding his condition:

“I’d like to announce that BEHEMOTH won’t be able to tour for the forseeable future.

“I don’t wanna bore you with details here, but I’m sick and am receiving some serious medical treatment. It’s gonna take another few weeks or more for full recovery, and so we have been forced to cancel all the BEHEMOTH shows in August, planned dates in Russia and Baltic States for September and October and our American tour in November.

“I know how much it sucks, but health comes first.

“I can assure all of you that when we return, I’ll be stronger than death, and we’ll reschedule every tour as soon as logistics allow.

“I feel good and strong, my mind is focused, I’ve got my loving woman by my side, my band mates, friends (never thought there are so many, haha), management, agents and label people are giving me massive support. I can’t ask for more but a little patience now.

“The fact that we won’t be touring for the next few months doesn’t mean we’ll hibernate. BEHEMOTH will be active on several other levels.

“In upcoming days you can expect the premiere of our newest video, ‘Alas, Lord Is Upon Me’, which is by far the sickest fuckin’ thing we’ve ever done! ‘Evangelia Heretika’ DVD is coming out as scheduled in November this year. Also, check out our webstore that opens for international markets in upcoming weeks.

“This is it for now. Stay tuned!”

Jaroslaw Burdek, manager of Darski’s girlfriend, 26-year-old Polish pop singer Doda (real name: Dorota Rabczewska), reportedly told the media in Poland that Nergal had been ill for several days prior to being admitted to the hospital.

It was reported by Se.pl that Darski was taken to the hematology division of the Gdansk Medical University Hospital, although this has not yet been officially confirmed.

Hematology, also spelled haematology, is the branch of internal medicine, physiology, pathology, clinical laboratory work, and pediatrics that is concerned with the study of blood, the blood-forming organs, and blood diseases.

BEHEMOTH’s second DVD, “Evangelia Heretika”, will be released in the U.S. via Metal Blade Records, in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records, and in Poland via Mystic Records.

BEHEMOTH recently shot a video for the song “Alas The Lord Is Upon Me”, taken from the band’s latest album, “Evangelion”. The clip was produced and directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz and Grupa 13, which previously helmed BEHEMOTH’s videos for “Ov Fire And The Void” and “At The Left Hand Ov God”.

Pitch Black Records: Ross the Boss – Power of the Night Festival

August 9th, 2010
by EvilG

PITCH BLACK RECORDS and the entire Power of the Night Festival team would like to extend their warmest thanks and congratulations to Ross the Boss and his band as well as Scott Columbus for an outstanding performance at Power of the Night Festival in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Special thanks also for the last-minute addition of an unrehearsed ‘Hail to England’ re-titled ‘Hail to Cyprus’ especially for that evening. A decision which as singer Patrick Fuchs commented was based primarily on the warm hospitality the band experienced during their time in Cyprus as well as the audience’s enthusiastic reaction. Fan-filmed video available below:

Ross the Boss delivered top quality metal and proved again both on stage as well as off stage that good solid heavy metal is also comprised of good character and courtesy and of course a tremendous respect for fans. Ross the Boss is indeed a TRUE metal leader!

Pitch Black Records would like to wish Ross the Boss the best of luck with their new album scheduled for release in November on AFM Records. We are more than confident that it will simply destroy everything in its path!

Ross, Patrick, Carsten, Matze and Scott WE THANK YOU!

END

Storm Leaves Dozens Hurt At Sonisphere Finland

August 9th, 2010
by EvilG

Story by AFP, pictures provided by Arto Lehtinen:

A severe thunderstorm hit the Sonisphere heavy metal music festival in southwestern Finland Sunday, injuring dozens and damaging the equipment of several bands including MÖTLEY CRÜE, organisers said.

“A severe thunderstorm hit (the) Sonisphere Festival in Pori, Finland this afternoon at approximately 4:00 pm (1300 GMT),” the organisers said in a statement.

“Strong freak wind gusts damaged the stages and knocked down tents and fences. Approximately 40 people were injured, two of them seriously,” the statement said, adding that those hurt had been taken to hospital for treatment.

Some 30,000 people were attending the two-day festival, where groups like IRON MAIDEN, ALICE COOPER, Mötley Crüe and IGGY POP had been scheduled to play, and the organisers said they were “doing everything we can to ensure that the show can take place.”

However, one of the stages suffered massive damage and had been closed, and several concerts, including Mötley Crüe’s, were cancelled due to damaged equipment.

Iggy Pop meanwhile opted to play an acoustic set due to the difficulty using electric equipment, while Alice Cooper had borrowed equipment from SLAYER, the organisers said.

Iron Maiden, the highlight of the festival, would also play the finishing concert as planned Sunday evening, although the set had been slightly postponed, they added.

“The show will run so long as it can run safely,” Sonisphere Festival series producer Stuart Galbraith said in the statement.

According to Finnish media, a plane chartered by Iron Maiden had been severely damaged at the local airport, as had a small helicopter.

DAVID ELLEFSON

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Transcription by Antaura Zed

David Ellefson is a co-founder and original bassist for legendary metal band Megadeth. Other than vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine, he was the only constant member of Megadeth from the time of their establishment in 1983 to the group’s hiatus in 2002. During that period Megadeth released nine highly successful albums like: RUST IN PEACE, PEACE SELLS … BUT WHO’S BUYING and YOUTHANASIA which are nowadays a thrash metal classics. Mustaine subsequently reformed Megadeth in 2004 but without David Ellefson and it wasn’t until last February when he finally re-joined in the band. During his off-Megadeth years, Ellefson worked with several different bands and projects including: Soulfly, Tim “Ripper” Owens, Killing Machine, F5, and all-star cover band Hail!. Megadeth are currently on tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of RUST IN PEACE and in July 2010 the band arrived to headline the Tuska Festival in Helsinki. Here’s what Dave had to say about their reunion, the projects, and about the future of Megadeth… read on!

EXODUS – Guitarist Gary Holt

August 9th, 2010

Exodus-logo3.jpg

Guitarist Gary Holt

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Off/onstage pictures by Terhi Pihlaja

Transcription by Martin Heaps (Psychophobe)

Thanks to Silke from Tough Enough Promotion for setting up the interview

Gary1.jpg

Finland is known for its several summer festivals – big or small, but every year some of them do surprise with some interesting band announcements that just cannot be shrugged off totally.

This year, one of the most interesting festivals appeared to be 3-day Myötätuulirock, which has annually been arranged in Vantaa, Finland for 14 years in a row – and is heavily based on some of the hottest Finnish rock/metal names of each ongoing year. The Bay Area veteran thrashers Exodus was announced to be the headliners of the first day of the festival, so that alone made the festival interesting enough to be checked out.

Exodus´ 9th full-length album, EXHIBIT B: THE HUMAN CONDITION was released through Nuclear Blast Records on May this year. There performance surprised many festival attenders by their immensely brutal and heavy load of thrash delivery as the last act on Friday evening. The band confidently churned out both new and old stuff from their well-oiled killing machine over the enthusiastic audience (“The Ballad of Leonard and Charles”, “Blacklist”, “Piranha”, “The Toxic Waltz”, etc.), and was also very well received by a fanatical crowd that seemed to go absolutely berserk in front of their masters, song after song.

Before Exodus went to punish their Finnish fans onstage at Myötätuulirock festival, Gary Holt had a moment to talk to Metal-Rules.com about his memories about the band´s 1st live appearance at Provinssirock festival in Finland in 2003, the ongoing tour, new album, but also reminiscing some blasts from the past.

DELAIN Prepare For ProgPower USA Performance

August 6th, 2010
by EvilG

Dutch epic metallers DELAIN will be performing on North American soil for the first time this September!

DELAIN are one of the main acts set to appear this September 11th at the annual ProgPower USA Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, set to perform alongside Kamelot, Nocturnal Rites, Hammerfall, Tarot, Tyr, Leaves’ Eyes and more. See the full lineup and more at: http://progpowerusa.com. Immediately following the fest, DELAIN have also booked shows in Mexico City and Sao Paulo before returning home. More live appearances will be announced shortly.

DELAIN “Mini World Tour” 2010:

8/07/2010 Wacken Open Air – Wacken, Germany

9/11/2010 ProgPower USA – Atlanta, GA

9/13/2010 Circo Volador – Mexico City, Mexico

9/18/2010 Carioca Club – Sao Paulo, Brazil

9/19/2010 ExpoBrasilia – Brasilia, Netherlands

The progressive metal professionals at New Jersey’s Sensory Records — who released the band’s sophomore release April Rain to North American audiences in 2009 (the album released via Roadrunner Records in Europe) — also reissued the band’s debut Lucidity in June, tying perfectly in with this upcoming US appearance of the band. The expanded edition of Lucidity features four full bonus tracks not available on the European version, and was also made available for the first time as a digipak worldwide.

DELAIN was conceived by former Within Temptation keyboard player Martijn Westerholt. Although Within Temptation was a rising star on the European metal scene, Westerholt had to leave the band due to a chronic illness. During his recuperation he wrote the material that would evolve into the Lucidity sessions. For the DELAIN studio project, Westerholt brought together some of the best known names in the European metal scene: Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot), Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation), Liv Kristine (Leaves’ Eyes), and Ad Sluijter (Epica). He also discovered a young vocalist named Charlotte Wessels. With a voice that matched her stunning looks, she immediately became DELAIN’s front woman.

The instant success of Lucidity in the European market necessitated Westerholt to create a fully active, touring band. DELAIN went on tour in support of Within Temptation and other high profile bands, and appearances at festivals as well as Dutch television elevated the band’s status into headlining performers. The band’s follow up album, April Rain, has further established the band as rising stars in the gothic metal scene.

Review copies of the reissue of Lucidity are available to North American journalists now, as well as interviews with the band any time. Please get in touch with any requests.

FIREWIND Triumphantly Returns With Days of Defiance On Oct. 26th

August 6th, 2010
by EvilG

FIREWIND Triumphantly Returns With Days of Defiance On Oct. 26th,
Release New Digital Single On 8/17 and Post New Video Trailer Online

The Greek metal phenomenon FIREWIND, led by the young guitar sensation Gus G. has returned with the scathing new effort Days of Defiance, which is easily their defining moment. The much anticipated disc is set for an Oct. 26th North American release (Oct. 25th throughout Europe) and it’s a truly ambitious and dynamic opus featuring some of the most brilliant guitar playing the genre has seen in many years. Click on the link below to view a new trailer featuring a clip of the new “World On Fire” single. Be sure to stay tuned to www.myspace.com/firewind in the coming weeks for the new album’s cover art and track listing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDV3-svl4lg

The “World On Fire” single will be available for purchase on digital platforms starting on 8/17, so keep an eye out for that.

Gus G. further states: “Usually when we write an album we let the music come to us and go with the flow. Maybe that’s why our albums have variety and you can hear everything from super heavy songs, to speed metal shredding, to rock anthems and ballads. Days of Defiance wasn’t much different in the making, but this time we recorded almost all of it in our home studios, which allowed us to be more relaxed. That’s why I feel the new album features the best performances by all of us. One of our main goals though was to get a bit more of an ‘unpolished’ sound and be more raw. I think we achieved it and that gives an extra heaviness to the overall sound. We mixed the album in Helsinki, Finland at Sonic Pump Studios. Nino Laurenne (Thunderstone) and Tapio Pennanen mixed it and they did a killer job. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

AS I LAY DYING North American Tour dates announced

August 6th, 2010
by EvilG

Grammy®-nominated metal group AS I LAY DYING has just announced a new set of fall tour dates in North America and Europe.  In support of their latest release THE POWERLESS RISE, the band will kick off the run September 14 in El Paso, TX with support from All That Remains, Unearth, and Carnifex. The tour will take the band down south, through the northeast, before making its way west through Canada, wrapping up October 11 in Chico, CA.

AS I LAY DYING–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–just wrapped the “Cool Tour” with Underoath, Between the Buried and Me, Blessthefall, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats, and War of Ages in San Francisco August 1.  In a live review from the 7/31 Los Angeles date, Louie Bones of BigWheelMagazine.com said, “As I Lay Dying hit the stage to an intro song that reminded me of an epic war scene from a movie, it set the tone for what was to come. The 4000 maximum capacity crowd howled in excitement as the 5 members of As I Lay Dying broke into the set opener ‘94 Hours.’ The bone shattering bass drum was felt by all across the floor and up into the Palladium’s balconies. It was similar to an earthquake set to musical rhythm and growled along to…Fans had waited all day for this and they were not let down by any means as As I Lay Dying tore through the Palladium relentlessly late into the night.”

Prior to the fall tour, AS I LAY DYING will be performing this Saturday, August 7 as part of the Maloof Money Cup presented by Vans which airs live on FUEL TV.  The MMC–the world’s premiere showcase for amateur and professional skateboarding–returns to Orange County for a third straight year August 4-8 (during the 2010 OC Fair) and will award nearly $450,000 in cash and prizes in four professional U.S. championship competitions: the VOLCOM Street Pro, Women’s Pro Street, Carl’s Jr. Pro Vert Championships and the World Industries Amateur Championships. More than 25 bands will perform including Lil’ Jon, Ludacris, YelaWolf and others. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster locations or at the OC Fair & Event Center Box Office at the Pacific Amphitheatre.

THE MURDER OF MY SWEET

The very well known Japanese actor/singer Anna Tsuchiya will use the original THE MURDER OF MY SWEET song “Follow The Rain” (titled “Shout In The Rain” in her version) as the lead off single from her third album released in Japan on Avex. The song in this new version can be enjoyed in this attractive videoclip

It’s very rare that a Japanese artist decides to cut a single with an already available song – but Avex and Anna T loved the track very much and the band feels honoured by their choice. THE MURDER OF MY SWEET are scheduled to appear live at the forthcoming Raismes Festival in France on September 11th.
