Unleashed - European Tour Cancelled

The following announcement has been psoted on the official Uleashed website:

"Sadly....and just like with a few other tours before ours..... The tour promoter Metallysee fucked up again...!!!
It is with anger in our hearts we have to announce that the european tour has been cancelled for reasons completely beyond our control. Ourselves and our brothers in Belphegor tried in a combined effort to make this tour happen until the very last minute, but in the end there was nothing we could do.

HOWEVER, thanks to the local promoter in Ireland the shows in Dublin and Cork this weekend will happen as planned!
We will also do the headline festivals in Germany:
The Deathcrush fest in Adelsheim on the 26th of May and Hellraizer fest on the 27th in Leipzig.

Nightwish - Warn For Concert Hoax

As posted on the official website:

"Somebody in Greece is making promotion for a Nightwish-show next June. There is even a poster of that "concert". That concert is a hoax, so don't buy tickets for that show! English translation from that poster goes:

"NIGHTWISH launch their world tour, beginning with Greece, and will proudly present their brand new "mystery" singer SONTRA...
Saturday, June 23rd, 2007 - Lycabettus Theatre - Doors open at 19:30 - Show starts at 21:30 - Ticket Price: 40 Euros"

So once again: All that text is so called bullshit."

Blaze Bayley and his band gave a fantastic, over 1,5 hour show during which he presented the best tracks taken from Blaze's discography as well as selected tracks of his previous band - Iron Maiden ("Man On The Edge", "Futureal"). This very energetic performance was one of the highlights of the festival.
The DVD will also include many great bonus features such as an interview with Blaze Bayley, an interview with all members of Blaze's band (featuring footage filmed during their visit to Poland) and more. The title will also be available in a limited edition including a CD with songs recorded at the concert!

Therion - Mats Levén Will Leave The Band Before Wacken

From Wacken Open Air and onwards, Mats Levén will no longer be singing with the band. It was a decision taken by the whole band in discussion with Mats. This change of line-up is on friendly terms and the remaining shows before Wacken will be performed with the same energy and passion as if nothing had happened. There are no bad feelings. Therion will continue to delevop even further into the direction we set on the last tour and Mats will focus on his new projects.

The background to this change is that on the last tour we all noticed that Mats lacked a bit of the energy and motivation we used to see in him. Not in a way that the actual performance on stage suffered from it, he has always been extremely professional and would never let down an audience. It was rather us noticing behind the scenes that some of his previous fire was missing. It seemed the new concept with 4 lead singers and a somewhat more musical type of set up didn't suit him as well as the concept we had before where his rock n' roll style contrasting to Karin Fjellanders traditional classsical appearance was a huge part of the idea. So we started to think and talk about the possibility of finding someone else who would have the right motivation and vocal skills to develp this new live concept even further.

Devin Townsend - Puts An End To Strapping Young Lad & The Devin Townsend Band

It has been reported that Devin Townsend has announced during a Ziltoid the Omniscient press conference that he has put an end to Strapping Young Lad and The Devin Townsend Band, and that he shall do no more tours in the future. He will though apparently continue to release solo music.

"Yesterday InsideOut Music and the Tora! Company held an exclusive media showcase for the new Devin Townsend solo album Ziltoid The Omniscient, including an appearance and Q&A session with the man himself. This turned out to not in fact include a musical performance from Devin, but a hilarious puppet show using Devin's superb hand-made rubber Ziltoid puppet he uses in the videos on the Ziltoid MySpace page, and held a press conference from a booth on the stage of the Underworld in Camden, London.

At Vance - Upcoming Album News

German Power Metal band At Vance will release their upcoming new album "VII" on June 29th via AFM. "VII" was mastered at Finnvox by Miko Jussila and has the following tracklist:

01. Breaking The Night
02. Shiver
03. Cold As Ice
04. Victory
05. Friendly Fire
06. Golden Leaves
07. Answer Me
08. Shine
09. Truth
10. Lost In Your Love

A picture of the cover art can be found here. An official press release reads as follows: "The new At Vance "VII" will be released on June, 29. As the name already says, the band built around fabulous guitarist Olaf Lenk, already releasing its seventh album. So what's different then? Well, in truth not much, but did you really expect that a band who had established its own sound so strongly on the last six releases would break the mould and do away with its very own interpretation on neo-classical Power Metal that crosses elegantly with the true spirit of 80's Hard Rock? No! All they've done is to step ahead again. Listen to the dramatic groove snaking through "Shiver" or the ultra catchy "Cold As Ice" where the new At Vance singer Rick Altzi shows his brilliant range."
