TJ Morris of Watchers Entertainment, one of the organizers of the Death In The Forest Festival — set to take place May 20 in Middletown, New York — has issued the following update:
"Due to the inclement weather, death in the forest 2006 will be moved from the Orange County Fair grounds. YES, MOVED FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS. As we aware that many people will be in the area on May 19th for the 1349/ BELPHEGOR/ TYPHUS/ ENGORGE signing at rock fantasy, and have also made hotel arrangements for the nights of may 19th and 20th in the Middletown area, we are doing everything in our power to relocate to a venue within close proximity of the Orange County Fair Grounds. I realize a great deal of you are probably pissed, thinking to yourself 'WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!' Well, that’s exactly how we feel about this situation as well. However, there has been rain in this area for the last three days, and another five days of rain is forecasted. Even if it dried up by May 20th, the grounds at the OC Fair would not support the weight of our equipment. So, once again, we are going to have to move the fest. We are frantically looking for a venue that is A) Large enough to suppo rt 2/3 stages, B) open to the idea of a black metal / death metal festival, and C) available for the dates of May 19th (setup) May 20th (event) and May 21st (break-down). If anyone OWNS, OR KNOWS SOMEONE WHO OWNS, such a spot in the Middletown, NY area, or in close proximity, please feel free to contact us. We have tried every conceivable venue in the area, and are getting stonewalled. More...

IMPALED - Ross Sewage
“Ah, the dead of winter... my favorite time of year! Well, first I join my family and we start the burning of the Cruel Log. It burns for eight magical days... or for however long we keep pouring the oil from a dead baby seal's fat onto it. Then we take the kids and get a photo of them sitting on Satan's lap at the Church of Satan in San Francisco. We all ask for the coming year to deliver revenge upon our enemies. One of my favorite moments is decorating the XXX-Mess tree with ornamental dongs, dildos, and effigies of Jenna Jameson. Finally we tuck the kids away, and by kids, I mean me. The next day I get up to receive the presents Satan brought for me because I've been naughty all year. YAY!! A new scalpel and bonesaw! For New Year's... I get drunk. Big surprise.”More...

Oakland’s Impaled are preparing to defile the south-western US. Supporting their latest release, "Death After Life," and performing with Disgorge and Blessing The Hogs, the band will be surreptitiously cavorting with local morticians and grave robbers beginning Sept. 23rd. Vocalist/guitarist Sean McGrath said of the tour, “ We’re super excited. No, wait, that's how I feel about ordering pizza and watching Dawn of the Dead. Of course we're all really itching to get out there and play with Blessing The Hogs and Disgorge, the only bands kind enough to agree to such a suicidal endeavor. As most people know, getting involved with us is nearly almost always a disaster of immense proportions. The southwest is one of the best areas of the country for metal and the fans are always totally insane. As most people know, we love the fans.”

Oakland’s IMPALED have released the video for ‘Preservation of Death’ online. When asked about the footage, Medical Deviant Sean McGrath (vocals/guitar) said, “The video footage for ‘Preservation of Death’ was shot in the early 1920s as an instructional film. It was funded by the infamous St. Julien's Medical University, an institution that later fell into disrepute after several scandals involving the staff undertaking inhumane experiments on the patients there. While going through the archives one day, we found the footage. Curiously, it synched up PERFECTLY with our song, and strangely enough, had people who looked exactly like us playing the lead roles. It seemed like a perfect fit. Plus, we had already spent the video budget on beer and pizza.
“The idea for the video came to me during the recording of Death After Life. I liken the experience to psychic photography, implanted memories, or perhaps the government mind control experiments of the 60s and 70s. One minute I was sitting there contemplating getting a real job and giving up all this foolishness, and the next my brain was hit by a bolt of lightning, imprinting the idea for this video like a petroglyph carved into living rock. My brain wasn't LITERALLY hit by lightning; that would kill me. I did feel like giving up and getting a real job though; that part was true.”
IMPALED will be announcing tour dates in the near future.
