Lord Volture Posts Photo Shoot Video

The Dutch heavy metallers in Lord Volture have released a new video podcast with footage of promo photos they took in September 2013 at a very special location of Westerborkin. Check out the clip below. The following press release was also issued about the photo shoot:

"It is a place with lots of history. During World War II the area served as a deportation camp. Nowadays the camp doesn’t exist anymore, but a museum and a monument in memory of the people who suffered and died in the Westerbork transit camp remain. Part of the terrain has been in use for astronomical observation since 1969 and harbours the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope. The impressive site consists of fourteen antennas, each 25 metres in diameter, arranged on a 2.7 km East-Westline.

"The photos were once again done by the talented hand of Bas Wijers, who was also responsible for our previous photoshoots, the cover artwork for the ‘Beast Of Thunder‘ and ‘Never Cry Wolf‘ albums, and the ‘Minutes To Madness‘ video clip.

"Next week Lord Volutre will be going on tour in southwestern Germany, co-headlining three shows with prog rockers Nick Hellfort. In the end of January the band travels to Denmark for another co-headline tour with Danish power metal colleagues Seven Thorns." More...

Rommelrock Festival Cancelled

The upcoming Rommelrock festival, which was to take place Friday and Saturday in Maasmechelen, Belgium, was cancelled. According to the promoters, the mayor of the town enforced a decision made back in May, in which he refused to issue a permit on the grounds that that the festival would cause unsafe conditions.

The announcement reads: "To our greatest regret, Rommelrock is forced to cancel the whole event. Seven years of intense labour, the spotless reputation, legal terms and liberties, in vain... Two court sessions made little difference... [The] mayor steps in to enforce the prohibition to organize Rommelrock, refuses to issue a license to permit Rommelrock 2013... such an improbable tale, as the decision of the Maasmechelen mayor made on May 13, 2013, is maintained, on so-called grounds of safety and public order... A boiling cauldron that spawned the anti-rommelrock story!

"Despite all the efforts taken and the fact we have the law and justice at our side according to the law and the constitution itself, the struggle ended in the worst possible way, forcing us to pull the plug out of this year's Rommelrock.

"We wish to express our deepest respect to all that supported us, and we apologize in the same time to all that suffered because of all this, despite all perseverance and tenacity.
We never wanted to see Rommelrock 2013, a special edition with exclusive shows and such, to end in this way."

Among the acts that were scheduled to perform: Therion, Civil War, Haggard, Morton, Tokyo Blade, Furyon, Dragonsfire, Sound Storm, Pursuing the End, Lord Volture, Iron Fate, Black Widow and Weeping Silence. More...
