17:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Actually crossguards would be immensely useful on a lightsaber. You know, to stop someone sliding their lightsaber down yours and cutting your hands off? Kinda what was useful about them in the first place on swords.
17:51 - Redn1ght The crossguard blades seem like they were more likely to hurt the wielder than the enemy.
17:50 - Frodd got me excited like a kid as well. and the lightsaber crossgurads arent that bad
17:49 - Redn1ght Yeah Zaph. First thought that came to my mind is "How is that helping the wielder at all? Doesn't it make the sabre more harder to use?"

Danish rockers Volbeat have decided to part ways with guitarist Thomas Bredahl.
The band announced it on their official website: "Volbeat has decided to part ways with Thomas Bredahl. Being in a band is in many ways similar to a marriage with ups and downs. At times you can work it out and sometimes you need to go separate ways... We want to thank him for the work he has put in for Volbeat and we wish him all the best in the future. Volbeat will play all shows as announced, either as a trio or with a replacement guitarist. Right now we'll take a well deserved break and we will be back on the road in January, ready to rock the Gigantour and Wacken."

The band did personally not want to cancel this tour but unfortunately Michael Poulsen was ordered by doctors not to fly or travel until his medical condition is stabilized to their satisfaction. At this moment Michael Poulsen is currently under doctor's supervision and a full recovery is expected within time to be able to pursue engagements from Dec 1st and onwards.

"To our U.S. fans: We'll be playing the first handful of our U.S. shows without Thomas on guitar. Immigration is giving him a real hard time because of an incident concerning theft of a barstool back in the day. He wasn't exactly a juvenile delinquent or anything, but to Homeland Security it's all the same. We hope to have him on board shortly. Our guitar tech will stand in for the time being and we'll, of course, keep you updated."
