Bolt Thrower Apologizes For Cancelled Italian Show

Bolt Thrower has issued the following statement about the recent cancellation of a show in Italy:

"Due to serious problems with the electricity supply in the venue BOLT THROWER, MALEVOLENT CREATION, NIGHTRAGE AND NECROPHAGIST had to cancel the show in Prato, Italy. The club's electricity supply was unsafe with bad/no earth and after one of the crew members was electrocuted for the 4th time the bands made the decision to pull the show. All bands apologize to all the fans who had traveled to see the show, but they are not prepared to put themselves in a life-threatening situation. Hopefully the Anomalia Club will take notice of their dangerous electricity problem and make sure there will be no accidents in the future."

Malevolent Creation To Tour Europe With Hoffman

MALEVOLENT CREATION mainman Phil Fasciana has issued the following update:

"I wanted to tell you is that Kyle [Symons, vocals] has just announced that he can't do the tour in europe with us due to personal reasons and instead of canceling another tour because of Kyle and his personal problems, we have contacted original vocalist Brett Hoffman to do the tour and he accepted our offer and is flying down to Florida next week to rehearse with the band until we leave on January 3rd. We simply cannot keep canceling tours because of Kyle and let down our fans and the promoters and booking agents who spend a lot of time and money on these tours. We cannot afford to lose our credibility as a touring band so this is how it has to be if we wish to continue!!!!

"This is really great news for a lot of fans and also marks the return of the original 4 band members (me, Jon Rubin, Jason Blachowicz and Brett Hoffman), together for the first time since our first European tours in 1991 and 1994 with this lineup. If all goes well on this tour we may replace Kyle with Brett and finish writing and recording our 10th album and then do a massive world tour for the next two years!!!!

"No one can destroy this MALEVOLENT CREATION!!!!!!"

MALEVOLENT CREATION's current touring lineup:

Brett Hoffman – vocals
Dave Culross – drums
Jon Rubin – guitars
Jason Blachowicz – bass
Phil Fasciana – guitars

MALEVOLENT CREATION are currently writing the material for their tenth studio CD, entitled "Doomsday X", which will be released spring-summer 2006. Phil Fasciana recently rejected rumors that Brett Hoffman would be making any guest appearances on the new album.

Several European festival appearances will follow next summer.

ex-Malevolent Creation Vocalist NOT On New Album

MALEVOLENT CREATION mainman Phil Fasciana has rejected as "wrong" an announcement on the official DOWN THE DRAIN MySpace.com page that former MALEVOLENT CREATION and current DOWN THE DRAIN frontman Brett Hoffman will be singing two tracks on MALEVOLENT's upcoming studio album. "Brett Hoffman is not singing any songs on our new album and either is Jason Blachowicz," Phil told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "Jason has rejoined the band — yes, that is true — but he is playing bass, not singing (unless some backing vocals are needed). Brett is no longer a part of MALEVOLENT CREATION and hasn't been for the last five years and is definitely not recording with MALEVOLENT CREATION. All vocals will be performed by vocalist Kyle Symons who replaced Hoffman in late 2000 and has recorded the last two studio albums, 'The Will To Kill' and 'Warkult' and a live album that was released earlier this year titled 'Conquering South America' and was recorded in Brazil on the Brazilian Tour in 2003 and has no plans of leaving or being released from the band. Whoever posted that information about Brett and Jason singing on our new album is an idiot and it is 100% not true!!!" The current recording and live lineup is:

Kyle Symons – vocals
Dave Culross – drums
Jon Rubin – guitars
Jason Blachowicz – bass
Phil Fasciana – guitars

MALEVOLENT CREATION will play the following live dates in Mexico this coming December:

Dec. 02 - Aguascalientes, MEX @ La Caverna
Dec. 03 - Mexico City, MEX @ Circo Volador
Dec. 04 - Puebla, MEX @ La Ciricua Bar

These will be the last shows in support of the band's ninth album, "Warkult". MALEVOLENT CREATION are currently writing the material for their tenth studio CD, entitled "Doomsday X", which will be released spring-summer 2006. Several European festival appearances will follow next summer.

Vocalist Brett Hoffmann will rejoin long-running Floridian death metallers MALEVOLENT CREATION for two songs on the group's forthcoming tenth studio album, to be released sometime in the spring/summer of 2006. The rest of the lead vocals on the CD are expected to be handled by Jason Blachowicz (also in DIVINE EMPIRE), who recently rejoined the group as the replacement for Gordon Simms. The band's current lineup also includes returning member John Rubin (guitar), who came back to the group following the departure of guitarist Rob Barret.

MALEVOLENT CREATION's latest album, "Warkult", was released in July 2004 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Liquid Ghost Recording Studio in Boca Raton, Florida by Phil Plaskon and mixed at Studio Wild in Quebec by producer Jean-Francois Degenais (KATAKLYSM). Mastering duties were handled by Bernard Belley in Montreal. A live album, "Conquering South America", was issued last year via Arctic.

Milwaukee MetalFest Postponed Til December

This year's Milwaukee Metalfest XIX, which was scheduled for July 29th and 30th at the Modjeska Theatre in Milwuakee, WI, has been postponed till December 2nd and 3rd of 2005. NECROPHAGIA, MACABRE, MALEVOLENT CREATION, ORIGIN among others were scheduled to play. No reason was given was given for the postponement, but most likely has to do with unreliable, shady festival owner Jack Koschick owing tens of thousands of dollars to many, many bands around the world, along with the Koshick/Grohl Metalfest series itself becoming the joke that it is.

On Malevolent Creation's Rock The Nations Abscence

MALEVOLENT CREATION issued a statement about missing last weekend's Rock The Nations festival in Istanbul, Turkey. It reads as follows:

"Our apologies go out to the Turkish fans who came to see us perform in Istanbul on July 4th (this past Sunday) at the Rock The Nations Festival only to find out we were not playing. We would have been there, but after providing the promoter with the correct ticket information for all 5 band members more then 3 months ago, no ticket information ever arrived. After many attempts to get the ticket info, it arrives in an e-mail without a ticket for our drummer Dave Culross. With no response from the promoter about getting a ticket for our drummer Dave, we had no choice but to stay where we were. Trapped in a German hotel for 4 days until we could fly home on July 6th. Still have not got an explanation to why this happened but hopefully we can try this again next year because we heard that we missed an amazing festival. To make matters worse our London, England show on June 23rd at the Underworld was also cancelled because mother nature was an angry lady that stormy afternoon. We left for England from France at 1:30 pm on a ferry boat that normally takes 1 1/2 hours across the sea to England. Of course, a brutal rain storm with 70-mile-an-hour winds causes all ports for the ferries to dock to get closed and we are stuck on a ferry for 10 hours before the ferry can dock. (What can i say? We are fucking cursed !!! Believe me, it was no fun watching people vomiting from sea sickness for 10 hours.) Once again sorry to all the fans who showed up at both these shows only to be let down, but sometimes shit happens. We promise to return later this year in support of our new album 'Warkult'. 'Warkult' is out now in Europe and will be released July 27th in North America on Nuclear Blast Records."

James Murphy Updates On Within The Mind Project

Former TESTAMENT/DEATH guitarist James Murphy has issued the following update regarding his upcoming DEATH tribute project, "Within The Mind - In Homage To The Musical Legacy Of Chuck Schuldiner" (web site), tentatively due in June through Holland's Mascot Records:

"This past Saturday [Feb. 21] I traveled to Orlando to Richard Christy's [ICED EARTH, ex-DEATH, CONTROL DENIED] warehouse where he and I practiced the songs which he will be playing on for the 'Within The Mind' project. on the first passes through the songs we nailed them... it sounded more like we had been playing together for months rather than minutes. Richard is a very disciplined and talented musician and clearly those traits, along with his love for the music of DEATH and Chuck Schuldiner, have pushed him to put a good amount of his free time into practicing for the upcoming session. The results will be awesome, I'm more than certain.
