A Forest Of Stars - Ink Deal With Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions

Official press release

The year is 1891. The members of the Gentleman's Club of A Forest Of Stars, an exclusive brotherhood of English Victorians, consider themselves to be exponents of their glorious and pompous, at times decadent era characterized by extreme opposites. A Forest Of Stars channel the experiences gained from their numerous meetings hazed by opium and absinthe, occult rites and séances in the form of a previously unheard-of ghostly and hypnotic music, filled with the spirit of the glorious Victorian Age - a harrowing testimony of their many spiritual and sensual excesses.

For their future undertakings, the Gentleman's Club has now found a loyal partner in Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions who are going to support these artists in the realisation of their five next albums. The Club's Representative The Gentleman has this to say about this decision of mutual cooperation: "We are proudly humbled to join the ranks of such great and noble artists. It is an honour to do business with a Mechanical Phonograph Recording Label that allows us to do precisely as we please and that has ensured our much-cherished Gentleman's Club will not unduly fall into ruin or disrepair. In short, we could not ask for a more fitting partnership."

Izegrim - New Album Cover Art And Tracklist Revealed

Listenable Records press release

Dutch death thrash ragers Izegrim are releasing their new album Code Of Consequences on Listenable records On February 28th.

Jeroen (guitar) commented: "In this day and age of cd's packed with subjects about war, we thought it was time for something different. With this cover, the designer Matt of Darkwave Designs captured the atmosphere that reflects multiple songs on the album. Code Of Consequences stands for everything a person can and will do to achieve his/her goals. The older we get, the more we have to achieve, the more consequences we have to bear. Is this person on the cover walking towards the city (why?) or is he walking away from this city (what happened and what did he do?). Perhaps he's standing still and looking at the inferno that is unleashed upon this city (is he the last survivor?). After reading the lyrics, people can decide for themselves what this person is doing. With the flaming logo above the city, it really makes it an "Izegrimesque" cover !"

Sabaton - DragonForce Bassist Joins Tour

DragonForce bassist Frédéric Leclercq will play with Sabaton - but only for their World War Tour 2011.

Sabaton explain the situation as follows:
"Our old friend and companion from the band DragonForce will take over on guitars from Rikard during the upcoming World War Tour in Europe. This is since Rikard has decided to multiply himself and will have his first kid at this time. Of course its the highest wish of Sabaton to tour with all six members but this time Rikard wanted to pass and to ensure that the fans that come to these shows will get a good show we wanted to bring in a person with both great musical talent as well as a great stage act together with a chemistry that we know fits in Sabaton. We are sure that Frédéric is that person.

Dew-Scented - Holy Moses Guitarist To Step In For Euro Tour

In case you haven't heard, Dew-Scented parted ways with guitarist Martin Walczak late last year. The band has however found a temporarily replacement just in time for their European Tour with Nile later this month: Michael Hankel of Holy Moses will be taking over rhythm guitar duties for the tour.

Commented Dew-Scented: "We have known Michi for several years now and are certain he will compliment the band in a great way for the coming shows!"

Michael "Michi" Hankel added: "I am proud to let you know that I am joining Dew-Scented for their upcoming European Tour. I have liked these guys and their material since many years and in my opinion Dew-Scented are a real challenge for all Thrash Metallers. Their songs are sounding heavy now and will kick you right in the face... I am truly looking forward to meeting you all on this amazing tour!"

Stratovarius - Jörg Back, But Paris Show Cancelled

January 11th, Stratovarius didn't perform in Paris as expected. They went on stage with promoter Oliver Garnier to announce that although this particular date was supposed to be a real party due to Jörg Michael being back in the band after his first therapy against cancer, Timo Kotipelto had been suffering from food poisoning since some time before Christmas. Although they tried everything that was possible, he was still unable to sing a single note, he said.

After the announcement, roadies cleared the stage that they had so carefully set for Stratovarius, allowing rumors that they had indeed hoped to perform until the very last minute.

Stratovarius is currently embarked in a European with German power metallers Helloween. It hasn't been stated when Stratovarius would be performing again, so it is to believe that they won't take the stage on Thursday January 12th in Lyon, France, as well.

Mike Portnoy - Schedules Live Shows With Beatles Cover Band

Time for your weekly update on Mike Portnoy! In only a matter of months the legendary musician went from ex-Dream Theater drummer to ex-Avenged Sevenfold drummer to drummer in a, err, Beatles cover band, called Yellow Matter Custard. Srsly!

After having had such a fun experience the first time around in 2003, Mike Portnoy, Paul Gilbert (Paul Gilbert, Racer X) and Neal Morse (Transatlantic, Spock's Beard) are reuniting once again to pay tribute to their greatest influence of all: The Beatles!

Due to a scheduling conflict (and further fueling the "Paul is dead" rumours), original YMC bassist Matt Bissonette is unable to join the band this time, but Yellow Matter Custard is pleased to announce the addition of Utopia legend Kasim Sulton who will surely be an amazing addition to the line-up.
