In Flames Drummer To Sit Out Motorhead Tour

In Flames has posted this message on their official website:

"Greetings People Of Earth....... We come with news.....

"First we would like to let all you people in the UK know that we will be doing the Motorhead tour without Daniel.
The reason for this is that he is becoming a father for the second time!

"We asked an old friend of ours, Tobbe Kellgren, to handle the drums for the tour and he gladly accepted.

"Daniel will be back on the next tour again.

"Furthermore - we had a listeningparty for our new album COME CLARITY with mediapeople and guests at the Storan Theater here in Gothenburg. For this special occasion we made a "rehearsal video" for the whole album that we showed to our guests.
Directing it was once again Patric Ullaeus! Patric and Anders worked really hard to get it done in time for the viewing and when the rest of us saw it it blew us away! Hopefully this is something that also YOU will be able to enjoy in the future - we?ll see..

"The release date for Come Clarity is approaching fast and we have some touringplans to announce:

"We will start a US tour in the end of January that will be running until the end of February. After that we are touring Europe from early March until April sometime. We will let you know as soon as we have some details (dates, support, etc.). On this Eurotrip we will try to do at least 5-7 shows in the UK - hopefully even getting to Ireland for the first time!

"And finally - we will shoot a video for the song "Take This Life" during this week. Patric Ullaeus will be directing and we will let you guys know more details as they unfold..

"Thats it for now - but we will return with more updates soon.

"In Flames signing out..."

Ozzfest 2005 Comes To an End in West Palm Beach

Well it was one hell of a tour, the 10th annual Ozzfest Summer Amphitheatre Tour came to an end once again in West Palm Beach, FL and I had a chance to be there. For 6 years now I have been planning on going to Ozzfest but for some reason something has always came up and I couldn't go. Last year I had everything lined up to go, and a damn hurricane hit the place. This year I finally lucked out and went to my first Ozzfest. Let me tell you "I have waited for this for a very long time." I loaded up the Tahoe with a couple friends and my wife and we left about 2:00am Saturday morning and drove about 9 1/2 hours from Charleston to West Palm Beach, FL. That was a long drive, I probably should have gone to the one in Charlotte, NC the night before but......."The best one is the last one" that's what I have always been told. More...

Ozzfest Report from July 24 in Bristow, VA

I attended Ozzfest 2005 on Sunday, July 24 in Bristow, Virginia’s Nissan Pavilion (my report is running late, as I’ve found myself overcommitted lately). This fest was the tenth annual Ozzfest, and not to be outdone by last year’s excellent lineup, this year they sported an equally as good lineup spanning more genres of metal than before. This year’s lineup also contained numerous headliner-quality bands on both stages including, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Rob Zombie, Mudvayne, and of course Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

Had I known that both people I was supposed to go with would bail out, I would have lined up a photo pass for the whole show to give me something more to do. As it turned out, I pretty much just enjoyed the show and met up with As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis for an interview that we missed in Philadelphia, PA.

While this year’s lineup sported mostly bands I knew and had heard, most I was only vaguely familiar with, so pardon the lack of specific details such as song names, etc. in many cases. More...
