AILD, Gwar, In Flames, Trivium Confirmed For SOTU

According to MTV.com, As I Lay Dying, Gwar, In Flames, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Terror, the Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth, the Chariot and Through the Eyes of the Dead are all confirmed to take part in the second Sounds of the Underground Tour.

The Sounds of the Underground organizers are taking a different approach to this summer's festival by keeping the number of bands on the bill down and extending the length of set times. Last year most bands got no more than 30 minutes to play.

While dates for the trek — including the official launch date — are still being worked out, SOTU will return to Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as cities in Texas, New England and western Canada. Tickets will go on sale in late March.

More bands will be announced in the coming weeks.

MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge Details

MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.

On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.

In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

Igor Cavalera Taking A Break From Sepultura

Igor Cavalera is taking a break from Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA to spend time with his new wife while they await the birth of their first child together, but he has no intentions of leaving the band, the drummer told BLABBERMOUTH.NET Friday night.

Cavalera, who recently remarried after splitting up with his wife of 10 years, Monika, says that he wants to stay at home in Sao Paulo, Brazil before his fourth child is born (he has three kids with his first wife, while his new bride has another child from a previous relationship) and insists that he gave the rest of the band his blessing to seek out a temporary replacement in time for the group's upcoming European tour with IN FLAMES.

Former SOULFLY drummer Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003, has been enlisted to do the European tour, with the possibility that he will stick around for further touring activities beyond the spring.

When asked point-blank if he has in fact quit the group or if he has any intentions of leaving the band, Igor told BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "No, man," before explaining that he would rather not tour right now than be in a position where he is forced to go on the road without having his heart in it 100 percent.

SEPULTURA's European tour with IN FLAMES is scheduled to kick off March 12 in Oslo, Norway. The band's new album, "Dante XXI" (featuring Cavalera), is scheduled for release in North America on March 14 via SPV USA.
