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...

Furyon Splits With Guitarist

U.K. act Furyon has posted the following message online about parting ways with the band's guitar player:

"Furyon is sad to announce that guitarist Pat Heath is standing down from the band. We wish him all the best for the future. Furyon will be carrying on with writing and new members have been placed. News to follow."

Pat had this to say: "It's with a very heavy heart and a tear in my eye that I have decided to step down from my role as guitar player in Furyon. Furyon is a band that is made up of 100% genuine human beings, and naturally, there is no animosity whatsoever.

"I have had a blast in my four years in the project and depart with only fond memories, most of all the people who come out to the shows. I am constantly amazed by the fact that this band only ever seems to attract a really diverse and wonderful group of kind hearted and positive followers, all of whom I have been proud to meet and entertain.

"Please, you can always drop in and say hello at this location. Thank you to Furyon, Rock N Growl Management and of course, our crew Kev and Charlie."
