- Metalcamp news
2008 is a very important year for Metalcamp festival because this year
Metalcamp will celebrate its 5th birthday. Naturally this means the
2008 edition of Metalcamp will be a very special one. To build up the
whole metal holidays experience we took one step further and decided
to offer you a great chance to see your favourite bands in one week.
Metalcamp Holidays 2008 will offer you 5 days of great metal acts from
all over the world performing on 2 stages!
Not many brands have achieved the high recognition level all over the
world in only 5 year period. Metalcamp is one of those who have. And
this is just another proof that Metalcamp is a festival unlike all others
and is here to stay.
Metalcamp main stage will turn to Altar Of Madness when the almighty
icons of extreme music, the real Blessed masters of the sick creativity
and imagination MORBID ANGEL will take over. There are not many bands
that have left such a big scar on extreme music scene that Morbid Angel
have. Morbid Angel have always been shattering musical boundaries as
well as encouraging our imagination with occult, evil subjects. They
are The Covenant for the worshipers of extreme music and their Domination
on death metal scene is obvious. Their Formulas are Fatal to your Flesh
so their performance at Metalcamp will mark you forever. This is a great
chance to see the reformation of the classic morbid trio- Trey Azagthoth,
Pete Sandoval and David Vincent with Erik Rutan on their side. The unholy
Getaways will open at Metalcamp and the Heretic will enter your mind
once again. Thy Kingdom Come will come with Lava… at Metalcamp
Defenders of Swedish metal movement SOILWORK have been confirmed to
join the week of Hell in Paradise. This will be the second time for
the Chainhearted Machine also known as Soilwork to perform at Metalcamp
festival. The happy Portraits of Predators searching for the finest
representatives of Swedish metal scene confirm that we did well. Together
with their fellow countrymen In Flames, Soilwork are at the very top
of Swedish export charts. Natural Born Chaos makers will impress you
for sure. And for their live performance they deserve nothing less than
Figure Number Five. The drama, emotions and heavy riffs that Soilwork
create are Sworn to a Great success.
Machinemade God are the German presenters of modern thrash core scene.
When it comes to their music they don’t believe in repetition,
and always trust in their instincts. Besides, this will be their first
appearance at Metalcamp festival and they will be presenting their new
album Masked, so they will surely kick ass.
Dead Beyond Buried present a new generation of UK based hard working
death metal enthusiasts. Their debut album Condemned to Misery got great
reviews and their devotion for extreme music promises a bright future
for this extreme quartet. Metalcamp will actually be their first gig
outside the UK, so we expect some serious brutality.
Some say that the best things evolve from our hobbies and Fear My Thoughts
are a great proof to confirm this saying. This young hard core band
from Germany was founded in 1997 by some friends and since then they
have come a long way. Their new album will be released sometime in 2008,
just in time to present their new material to hard core hungry crowd
In metal scene Poland is most known for its extreme bands. Behemoth
and Vader are probably the first names that pop out, but one should
not forget about HATE. This great death metal band has managed to cross
the boundaries of their home country and present their music to world
wide audience. Prepare for another unholy act at Metalcamp festival.
Sybreed from Swiss will satisfy all of you who search for something
different. Their unique mixture of extreme metal and industrial influences
will make you feel like the last man on earth. So join those who preach
about the decay of modern way of living and experience their last masterpiece
Antares live in the beautiful nature of Metalcamp festival.
CONFIRMED BANDS FOR METALCAMP 08 ARE:
IN FLAMES - MINISTRY - APOCALYPTICA - HELLOWEEN - MORBID ANGEL - CELTIC

on Century Media Records in October 2007, Swedish blackened Death/Thrash

DEVIAN vocalist Legion comments on the tour as follows:
“The DEVIAN machine is geared up, deadly and so ready to take
our music all over Europe! I’ve shared many a good time with Peter
and the Vader boys over the years and we’re gonna raise hell and
kick ass in the name of Metal to commemorate this Vader landmark. Fucking
hell, 25 years and still going strong…that’s amazing! Real
troopers they are!"

fan can ask for” (ROCK HARD, Germany), unites “black, death,
thrash, and classic heavy metal parts in a highly individual sound”
(METAL HAMMER, Germany), and ultimately provides “an excellent
kickstart for DEVIAN” (HEAVY, Germany). So check out some tunes

- THE FUNERAL PYRE wraps up West Coast tour, offers update on new album
Los Angeles’ THE FUNERAL PYRE have returned from a brief West
Coast tour and vocalist John offers this update: “We just wrapped
up our West Coast tour with the almighty Book of Black Earth. Was it
fun, you ask? All you need to do is look at this one picture.
That proof enough? I believe so.
“Now that we have that out of the way, I, as well as everyone
else in THE FUNERAL PYRE, would like to collectively thank all of the
rad dudes in Book of Black Earth. We had an amazing time and cannot
wait to hit the road with you guys again. Many hails.
“We record our new album ‘Wounds’ in a few weeks with
John Haddad (Intronaut, Abysmal Dawn, Eyes Of Fire) then we send it
off to Eric Rutan (Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, THROUGH THE EYES OF
THE DEAD) to mix this bad boy down. We are extremely excited to do this
record with these two gentlemen and are also excited to have some of
you kids hear this new record. We have been playing three new songs
live at our shows, which we've had really great feedback on. So thank
you to those whose attention was on us during the show and not the hot
girls walking around in tight pants. We appreciate it.” More can
be seen on the band’s official blog here.
Meanwhile, THE FUNERAL PYRE continues to support its Prosthetic Records
debut, 'The Nature of Betrayal' which saw a February 2007 re-release
through a distribution deal with Creator Destructor Records. The band

- THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD recruits drummer, vocalist
Currently at home gearing up for the forthcoming Scum of the Earth tour
alongside Throwdown, Soilwork, and War of Ages, South Carolina’s
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD have issued an update on the band’s
recent line-up change: “We just want to fill everyone in on the
current situation with TTEOTD,” guitarist Justin Longshore says.
“First off, this band isn’t going anywhere and we are still
doing the Throwdown/Soilwork tour as planned. To avoid any complications,
we'll just state that Josh [Kulick, drums] and Nate [Johnson, vocals]
have both parted ways with the band under their own circumstances. We
wish them the best of luck in the future.
“We are excited to announce that Lech, formerly of As Blood Runs
Black, will be handling drums for us on the upcoming tour. He's a monster
behind the kit and has proven to us to be the right fit for our style.
And stepping into the vocal spot is Lou Tanius, who has previously put
time in with On Paths of Torment and Invocation of Nehek.”
Continuing to support the band's recent release, 'Malice,' THROUGH THE
EYES OF THE DEAD recently completed a U.S. run supporting As I Lay Dying,
labelmates All That Remains and Haste The Day. The band has also supported
‘Malice’ alongside The Red Chord, Despised Icon, All Shall
Perish, See You Next Tuesday as well as headlined a US run with As Blood

set to be released worldwide on Nuclear Blast Records in 2008. Guitarist
Ben Orum comments on the progress of the the new record:
"After touring Europe, Australia and the States we are finally
back at home writing the new record. Fans of ASP, old and new alike,
will not be let down by the insanity that we have been creating in our
studio. We are trying a lot of new ideas, and they are coming out far
more exciting than we ever envisioned. We are set to prove once again
we are not some fly-by-night 'deathcore' band."
On a seperate note, ALL SHALL PERISH fill-in bassist and ex-Suffokate
bassist Bray Almini has put together a website dedicated to all of the
insane quotes their guitarist CHRIS STOREY has said over the years,
it can be viewed in its hilarity at: http://www.itsstoreytime.com.
Says Bray Almini about the site:
"Chris is the funniest shredder virtuoso out there. Some of the
things that come out of his mouth make me fall to the floor in laughter..
we decided to create http://www.ItsStoreyTime.com to keep a record of
it all. Check it out.. you'll love him."
- BYFIST/REVEREND BASSIST BRENDON KYLE ENLISTS IN THE USAF
REVEREND/BYFIST bassist BRENDON KYLE has enlisted in the United States

been sworn in and will become active duty in mid FEB 08. As much as
we will miss him, we understand his passion and desire for duty to his
country and applaud him all the way. We wish Brendon a safe and rewarding
career in the military and hope to see him banging his bass once again
down the line. Please feel free to leave comments as I'm sure Brendon
