Virgin Steele Added To 70,000 Tons Of Metal

Virgin Steele has been confirmed as the latest act to perform at the upcoming 70,000 Tons of metal cruise. The organizers of the cruise commented:

And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It's like everyone has a backstage pass!"

Grand Magus Drummer Hospitalised

Swedish heavy metal outfit Grand Magus has announced that the band has been forced to cancel a planned European tour with Grave Digger, after drummer Sebastian was hospitalized with blood clots in his leg. A message from the band reads as follows:

"It is with deep sadness we deliver the the news that Grand Magus drummer Sebastian has been afflicted with deep vein thrombosis - blood clots in the deep veins of the legs. The immediate effect of this is that he can't play at all because of the pain and swelling. However, this is a serious condition that must be treated immediately to avoid that the clots travels to the lungs. He's in hospital at the moment and will initially be treated via injections and pills with anti-coagulation medicine. For the duration of the treatment he'll have to be checked daily at the hospital. Anti-coagulation medicine also has dangerous side effects, most obvious that bleeding or blows to the body must be avoided at all costs, since the blood won't stop flowing. In the case of internal bleeding it could be lethal.

"Grand Magus wish to extend their deepest apologies to all who were looking forward to bang their heads to Magus during this european tour, and also to Grave Digger. This is a terrible situation, but really a case of Force Majeure and not something that can be solved in any other way due to the circumstances."
