Escape the Fate's new music video 'Issues'

Straight from the city of lights, Escape the Fate abolished Las Vegas with their hardcore stylings. Low and behold they have created many albums since then and it just so happens that they have made a music video from their most recent album titled "Massacre."

Here is their new video 'Issues.'

Will post full album soon.

Heavy Metal Picnic

I'm a big fan of metal documentaries. Lamb of God's Walk With Me in Hell, Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, Metal Heads... all good. Coming soon is a brand new film called Heavy Metal Picnic that I for one can't wait to see. Here is the trailer.

Mutiny Within Hunts for Drummer

Mutiny Within has recently had to drop out of their tour with Nevermore and Warbringer due to lacking a drummer. They were unable to find a solid replacement in time. If you don't know who these guys are, you should. Take a look!

 Mutiny Within has posted this blog on their Myspace:
 "We're sorry to say that despite our best efforts, our plans to hit the road with Nevermore this month have sadly fallen through. As many of you know, we have been looking forward to being a part of this tour and seeing all of our fans again. However, we feel that in order to deliver our best performance every night, our search for a full time drummer has to take priority. Instead of hitting the road with a temporary member again, we want to take the time to properly audition and rehearse.

We did have another drummer lined up to accompany us on this tour, but due to a slow visa process, rehearsal time was cut to an unworkable amount. Mutiny Within is not a 5 piece band and we need to find our 6th member to bring you guys what you deserve. We're so sorry to anybody who was looking forward to seeing us on this tour, but we cannot tour without a drummer. We know people will be upset and we apologize, but know that nobody will be more upset about this than we are. On a positive note, this gives us the time to work on brand new songs, which we've been looking forward to doing for some time.

If anybody knows a suitable drummer or you are yourself, then please contact us at mwdrumauditions@gmail.com. We hope you all understand this and will continue to support us. Keep checking back for further updates, thanks everyone. MW"

So help them out guys, get some drummers to audition and get them back on stage where they belong.

 Once again, if you know any talented drummers or are a suitable drummer yourself, hit them up at mwdrumauditions@gmail.com.

KAMELOT Postpones North American tour

Kamelot postpones North American tour to wait for Roy Khan's recovery. The band said this:

"Hi Kamelot Nation.

As many of you know, Roy has fallen ill and could not make the North American tour. We have been rehearsing like madmen here in Tampa -- the band is tighter than ever and Michael from Circus Maximus is truly an amazing singer; if there is one male vocalist in this world who is on par with Roy, it is Michael! However, after today's rehearsal, we all decided that we do not feel right about doing the North American tour as anything less than a 100% Kamelot Experience. We appreciate that many fans have waited more than 2 years for new material and to see us perform together. Our new album, Poetry
for the Poisoned represents a labor of love from us, and to present it at anything less than full strength seems a disservice to all involved.

Though we will suffer financial losses on this late hour cancellation, we still feel it’s the right decision for us as a band to make – we regret disappointing all those who worked so hard to shape this tour, and especially those fans who were still so willing to come through and support us despite Roy’s absence. We are humbled by that type of support, and we sincerely hope that our return in full form Kamelot strength will be more reward for your unwavering loyalty! We will reschedule all shows in the near future, once Roy is able to return. To thank Michael for his effort, the band will still appear at the sold-out Progpower Festival, as a one off show with him and many special guest singers
from the festival. Again, we want to thank all of you for your amazing support!

Best regards, Kamelot Members"

We will be looking forward to Khan's Recovery and the North American tour to start back up when possible. Good wishes to Kahn.
