Gigantour CD/DVD Details Revealed

The second coming of Megadeth's acclaimed traveling metal festival Gigantour arrives on both DVD and CD April 22 via Image Entertainment. Conceived in 2005 by Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, Gigantour resurrects metal's focus on stellar musicianship.

The Gigantour DVD and CD follow Image Entertainment's fall 2006 release of the debut Gigantour CD and DVD, which featured performances by Megadeth, Dream Theater, Fear Factory, Anthrax (CD only), Nevermore, Life of Agony, Symphony X, Dry Kill Logic and Bobaflex.

Gigantour 2 features over an hour of performances by iconic and influential heavy metal pioneers Megadeth, along with Lamb of God, Opeth, Arch Enemy, Overkill, The Smashup, and Into Eternity. Recorded in DTS 5.1 surround sound, the DVD version also features a behind the scenes look at the 2006 tour, while both the DVD and CD offer a hidden bonus track--Megadeth's "Peace Sells."

The release of the Gigantour 2 DVD and CD coincides with this year's Earth Day--perfect, really, since MUSTAINE has said, with a laugh, about Gigantour's mission of emphasizing true musicianship and virtuosity: " I think that in a small way, we are cleaning up the environment of crappy bands."

Meanwhile, in February Megadeth heads to Europe--where recently announced new guitarist Chris Broderick (Nevermore, Jag Panzer) will make his debut with the band alongside Mustaine, drummer Shawn Drover, and bassist James Lomenzo, before returning for this year's Gigantour.

The 29-date North American trek kicks off April 12 at The Fillmore in Denver and criss-crosses the U.S. and Canada until its May 22 finale at the Mesa Amphitheatre in Phoenix . Joining Megadeth on this year's tour are Scandinavian death metal band In Flames, Finland's Children of Bodom, Arizona's modern extreme Job for a Cowboy, and Oakland, CA heavy power trio High on Fire.

Dry Kill Logic Part Ways With Label

DRY KILL LOGIC has issued the following update:

"The response to the new album, 'Of Vengeance and Violence', has been tremendous. It is awesome to see that our longtime fans are enjoying the new music as well as plenty of new converts to the DRY KILL LOGIC camp, and it is humbling to see so much support after so many years. Our spring 2K6 Euro run was great, Australia was an unforgettable run with FEAR FACTORY and DEVILDRIVER and the fall 2K6 Euro tour was lots of fun. Big ups to Mark 'Fish n Chips' Stickland, Ollie and our longtime compadre Bubba all for respective jobs well done. You couldn't have asked to tour with better people. Geinfeistenvoorg! Nooduitgang!

"Amazing to think that was so long ago.

"Since then, life has been a bit less awe-inspiring; we decided to part ways with Repossession Records soon after our return to the U.S. Call it what you will (and believe me, there are MANY things to call it), but the bottom line is we are back on our own two feet and it feels GREAT. Some people feel content to pour syrup on shit and call it pancakes their whole lives, and having finally rid ourselves of that element leaves us in a much better position than we have been in quite some time. Being a band in today's day and age presents a myriad of challenges, but along with those challenges it also presents many opportunities and there are many things in the works that will allow us to continue bringing our the music to the people that mean the most — the fans.

"Unfortunately, we returned to the U.S. without plans to tour and have yet to find a situation that makes sense for the band — touring in the music industry of today requires a lot more tenacity and hard work than one might expect."

"Of Vengeance and Violence" was released last September. An EP/DVD, entitled "The Magellen Complex", preceded the album in June 2006 via Psychodrama/Repossession Records. Described by the band as a "tribute to the fans," the CD also contained a cover version of GUNS N' ROSES' "It's So Easy", plus an original track called "From Victim to Killer" that was also included on "Of Vengeance and Violence".

Pristina Sign To Spare Change Records

PRISTINA, the new band featuring former members of 100 DEMONS, A THOUSAND FALLING SKIES, INVOCATION OF NEHEK and DRY KILL LOGIC, has signed a deal with Spare Change Records. The group's debut album, "Boner Jams (The Harpooned Heart)", will be released this spring. Rough mixes of three songs can be found at the band's MySpace page.

Commented vocalist Brendan K. Duff (formerly of 100 DEMONS): "Basically we cannot stand the mediocre hair-and-pants bands that somehow pass for metal or metalcore, or what have you these days. We identify with older greats like BLOODLET, STARKWEATHER, RORSCHACH, TODAY IS THE DAY and DEADGUY. We're definatly not for everyone, but fans of the aforementioned bands finally have an alternative to the garbage that these current bands are forcing down our throats."

"Boner Jams (The Harpooned Heart)" track listing:

01. Lady Baphomet
02. Vicodin Song
03. Fucking Destroyer
04. Trenches And Dogfaces
05. Lilith's Severed Head
06. 13
07. The Rat.The Pig.The Spider
08. Day Of Days

Dry Kill Logic Post Another New Song Online

DRY KILL LOGIC has posted another new song, entitled "4039", on its MySpace page. The track comes off the group's follow-up to 2004's "The Dead and Dreaming", entitled "Of Vengeance and Violence", which is scheduled for release on September 19.

Regarding the upcoming CD, DRY KILL LOGIC frontman Cliff Rigano recently said, "It's definitely in-your-face, aggressive music. We've never compromised our integrity for a quick glimpse of success, never wrote a record with the pipe dream of crossover radio accessibility and never turned our backs on the style of music we write or the people that appreciate it."

DRY KILL LOGIC's EP/DVD, entitled "The Magellen Complex", was released on June 27 via Psychodrama/Repossession Records. Described by the band as a "tribute to the fans," the CD also contains a cover version of GUNS N' ROSES' "It's So Easy", plus an original track called "From Victim To Killer" that will be included on DRY KILL LOGIC's upcoming album. On the DVD, fans will find footage from the band's early days, including never-before-seen interviews on the road and in the studio, the video for "Paper Tiger" and more. More...

Cliff Reports In From The Dry Kill Logic Camp

What up everyone Cliff here. Just wanted to write and say what’s up, and thank everyone that has picked up a copy of The Magellan Complex. The response to the EP has been great, and we’re psyched about all the positive feedback we’ve been getting on the music and the DVD (yes, we know Phil is out of his mind). From Victim to Killer definitely represents the next level of aggression we achieved on this new album, and we can't wait for you to hear the rest of the tracks! Its definitely in your face, aggressive music - we've never compromised our integrity for a quick glimpse of success, never wrote a record with the pipe dream of crossover radio accessibility & never turned our backs on the style of music we write or the people that appreciate it.

We’re excited to announce that we will be heading to AUSTRALIA for the 1st time ever – we’ve been added to the Fear Factory / Devildriver tour for 3 shows (Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne) – check the dates below for all the info! We can’t wait!!

We’re also planning our return to Europe – we had such a blast time that we have to come back and party with you guys again! This time we’ll be hitting Switzerland and Italy as well as Germany, the UK and France, with plenty more to come – confirmed dates are below and keep checking back for all the latest dates!!

And don’t worry about the US – plans are in the works for hitting some of our favorite places to play as well. We’re working it out now, so be sure to stay tuned!!

Dry Kill Logic Return From UK Tour, Enter Studio

Dry Kill Logic just got home from touring England where they were reportedly blown away by the fan support and turnout. Playing to sold out crowds and wild kids every night, Jason Bozzi commented that, "It's good to see that kids still know how to dive off the P.A. systems."

From Wolverhampton, Cliff Rigano wrote, "Hey everybody! We're 4 shows into this tour and I can't even BEGIN to explain how amazing it has been so far! These shows have been off the wall and all the kids there have been INSANE!!! This is our first proper UK/Euro tour, and we are already planning our return - we should be back on tour in Europe in November!"

Upon landing down at JFK, DKL headed right into the studio to finish recording their upcoming album with Eddie Wohl and Rob "Goat on the Half-Shell" Caggiano of Scrap 60 Productions.

Dry Kill Logic Studio Update, New Bassist

Dry Kill Logic has issued a recording update and announced a new bassist:

"What's up everyone - Cliff here, writing to you over a cup of coffee and full chillum on a Monday morning. We've been locked in our studio writing non-stop for the new record; people always ask what the new record is going to sound like....I like to tell them a mix of gospel, dance and 80's new wave, just to get a rise out of them. All jokes aside though, the writing is coming along great - the new music is definitely aggressive, and the guys have really been stepping up the riffs, songwriting and musicianship. Hopefully I don't drop the ball with the vocals and lyrics. We're really excited for you all to hear the new music!"

Longtime friend to the band and former member of 100 Demons and A Thousand Falling Skies, Brendan Duff, has joined Dry Kill Logic as the new bassist. "We've always known that Brendan was the man for this job, and it's been a long time coming - we are stoked to have such a close friend and tremendous musician in the band." Brendan will be joining the band on their upcoming UK/European tour as well as recording bass on the new record. He replaces Casey Mahoney, who parted amicably with the band and remains good friends with the remaining members.

Gigantour Report from Huntington, WV

After parking at the pay lot across the street we approach the Big Sandy Super Arena located on 3rd avenue of Huntington, West Virginia. The venue is lovingly referred to as the “civic center” by the locals. On the bricked walk way in front of the doors is a van, not any van but a van fully painted in the cover art of the new Bobaflex album, Apologize for Nothing. Impressive, flashy and showboating, but impressive none the less. This is home state for the band, so why not show off a little. We snap a couple of pictures of the van and we’re off to the window to grab our tickets. I give the lady my name and who I’m on the list for, Bobaflex. She finds the envelope; she slides the package through the slot in the glass. I open the package, as promised my photo pass. Off to a good start to a good night. More...

Five Bolt Main Loses Three Members

New heavy metal outfit Five.Bolt.Main has announced a new lineup effective immediately. Joining Five.Bolt.Main for their upcoming tour dates are three members from the popular New York City-based hard rock group Alston. They are: Kobie Jackson (guitar), Alex Cando (bass), and Ron Paige (guitar). Founding Five.Bolt.Main members Chris Volz (vocals) and Ivan Arnold (drums) remain with the band.

Jackson was the former bass player of heavy metal outfit Primer 55, and later went on to form Alston, dazzling audiences with their infectious live show. Jackson sang and played guitar with Alston, joined by Cando on bass (who also performed with Darwin’s Waiting Room) and Paige on guitar. Alston will continue to open for Five.Bolt.Main and Dry Kill Logic throughout their October tour.

Departing Five.Bolt.Main for the remainder of the tour are Jason Chandler, Ben Arnold, and Aaron Weleken. The three are leaving due to “musical differences and unforeseen rigors of the road.”

Five.Bolt.Main recently released Venting, the band’s hard-hitting debut on Rock Ridge Music. Featuring vocalist and songwriter Volz of the group Flaw, Five.Bolt.Main is already off to a fiery start. The first single from Venting, the powerful “Pathetic,” has already made its debut on MTV 2’s Headbanger’s Ball. It is also being broadcast nationwide with steady spins at Active Rock radio.

“Pathetic” is now being featured on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Octane (Channel 20) as well as the nationally-syndicated radio program hardDrive. In fact, hardDrive has signed on to sponsor the current Five.Bolt.Main tour as well as the Rock Ridge Music tour (also featuring Domeshots and Scars of Life) planned for early 2006.
