Matt Barlow has rejoined Iced Earth, according to the following statement posted on www.icedearth.com:
"Hello Dear Friends!
Once again the winds of change are upon us, and this time I can say that I am very happy about the result.
While out on the European tour I had several in depth discussions with many loyal Iced Earth fans. A common theme of these discussions was how much Matt is missed. I agreed with the fans that things were not the same and that it was a very special period in Iced Earth's history.
When I heard several months ago that Matt was going to be doing a project in music again, I was thinking about contacting him and seeing what his intentions were. I didn't act on this because I was so focused on the writing of the new epic, and frankly, it just didn't seem realistic.

Finnish Hard Rockers Lordi were elected to perform for their country at the Eurovision Song Contest with their song "Hard Rock Hallelujah" and managed to reach the finals, which will take place on Saturday night, 8 p.m. local time, in Athens, Greece. It will be broadcasted in all countries that are part of the European Broadcasting Union. In the semifinals, which took place tonight (May 18), Lordi managed to be one of ten acts out of 23 to reach the finals, a fate more popular mainstream acts like Kate Ryan (for Belgium) haven't met.
