OBITUARY – Announces US Tour Dates


"We'd like to apologize to our Auckland friends for not playing the KORN tour that we were a part of in Australia. Some of you had no clue that we were supposed to play and others showed up and paid expecting us to, but regardless we really wish we could have closed out the tour with all of you and our friends in BIOHAZARD, CHIMAIRA and KORN. It was just a matter of red tape with New Zealand immigration that we couldn't cut through despite our best efforts. We promise we'll be back again soon, though, and will do our best to make a show in Christchurch as well next time. Worst-case scenario, I'll eventually be retiring in Auckland at the tender age of forty and we can sit around together eating feijoas and fish while listening to the BLEEDERS."

THERION – Line Up Changes



But despite this generic flood, there were a few names back then that gave new meaning to the word “thrash”. One of them was the Louisiana-based EXHORDER, a band who had a massive impact on all of future thrash metal. The group released two classic albums – Slaughter In The Vatican and The Law, which to this day stand as the embodiment of sheer thrash power and aggression. While during their career they were rather overlooked, Exhorder resurfaced years later as a thrash metal legend, highly praised by heavy music enthusiasts for their two amazing albums. Rumors of a reunion still echo around the metal scene, but as always – nothing is certain.

Both Exhorder titles will be released by Metal Mind Productions on May 19th in Europe / July 8th in USA (via MVD)...

VENOM – Reveals “Hell” Tracklisting


"We just got back home from a very successful headlining tour in the U.K. with GLAMOUR OF THE KILL supporting us, and they were fucking awesome! They're really cool guys and you should all check them out. Before we went to the U.K. we spent a month out on tour with ALL THAT REMAINS and we had a great time with them. We did a small headlining run right after our album came out and all of you that came out to shows were fucking awesome and we had an amazing time playing for you.

"Right now our plans are to take about three weeks off from touring, so that we can rest just a little bit before we go out and tour for tour for the remainder of the year...
