On November 24, Gwar played a sold-out show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC, along with All That Remains and Dying Fetus. I have never seen any of the bands live before so I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially Gwar. I have heard stories about Gwar’s shows but it’s just not the same as experiencing it yourself.

Cataract's video for the track "Nothing's Left" has been posted online at MetalBlade.de.
"Nothing's Left" comes off the Swiss metalcore bands latest CD, "With Triumph Comes Loss", available now on Metal Blade Records. The band recorded the CD at Antfarm Studio in Aarhus, Denmark with producer Tue Madsen. A vinyl version of the album was released through Dead Serious Records.
Cataract will be teaming up with Six Feet Under, Nile, Dark Funeral, Dying Fetus and Disbelief for the No Mercy Festivals 2005 European tour beginning in early March. A complete list of currently confirmed tour dates can be found at this location.
Dying Fetus have hired drummer John Longstreth for their upcoming tour with Gwar, as their regular drummer will be unable to participate. Longstreth left The Red Chord last month and according to Dying Fetus, "[he] has done a great job of learning our set list for these shows with barely two weeks of daily rehearsals."
Vocalist Vince Matthews has been dismissed from the Dying Fetus lineup. According to the band, "This action was taken due to a number of musical, professional, and personal reasons that we feel do not need elaboration at this time." However, the group goes on to state that "Vince remains a long-time friend of several Dying Fetus members and we wish him the best of luck in the future." The move will apparently not affect the band's current tour plans, as they intend to continue as a four-piece, handling the vocals "accordingly."
Misery Index, the Baltimore, Maryland-based band featuring Jason Netherton (bass/vocals, ex-Dying Fetus) and Sparky Voyles (guitar, ex-Dying Fetus, M.O.D.), are looking for a second guitarist to join the group on tour next year. "Ability to play all metal-related styles (death, grind, black, thrash, etc.), and availability to tour at any time are essential," reads a posting on the group's web site. "Also, lack of a criminal record (for crossing international borders) and willingness to relocate are important. We also would prefer a guitarist who can do vocals as well, and touring/recording experience is a plus. Anyone interested please get in touch at MIBooking@aol.com. METAL!!!..."

Oct. 28 - La Pocatière, QC - TBA
Oct. 30 - Campbellton, NB - TBA

Maryland-based death metallers Dying Fetus have left the following message on their official website:
We regret to announce the cancellation of our July shows due to transportation problems. This was a dreadful surprise (disappointment, frustration...) and we spent a hellish day trying to arrange alternate means of travel to fulfill this week's bookings, but finally had to accept that there was nothing we could do that would result in a safe trip. We were looking forward to these shows and we always HATE cancellations (especially on the day we were supposed to hit the road). We took out our frustrations by holding an impromptu jam session which resulted in a few new riffs. So, we hope to see you again soon and anticipate having new material to present as well!
The band has also announced at least two tour dates for an upcoming Mexican tour in September. They are:
September 4 - Monterrey, Mexico @ TBA
September 5 - Mexico City, Mexico @ Lopez Mateos Arena
