Shadows Fall, The Haunted Lined Up For Ozzfest '05

Century Media recording artists Shadows Fall and the Haunted have secured slots at this year's Ozzfest. Shadows Fall are expected to appear on the main stage while the Haunted are said to be in the mix for the smaller second stage, which will apparently feature more non-rotating slots this summer compared to the last couple of years. Other acts believed to have been selected for the 10-year-anniversary edition of Ozzfest are Black Label Society, Rob Zombie, Killswitch Engage and Mudvayne. Iron Maiden are strongly rumored to have nabbed the co-headlining slot alongside Black Sabbath, who will make a series of European live appearances in June/July prior to the Ozzfest U.S. kick-off. Also expected to perform on the main stage is the "Among the Living" lineup of Anthrax, who have yet to officially confirm their "reunion" plans despite having already been announced for four European festival appearances this spring/summer (Holland's Dynamo Open Air on May 7, Sweden's Sweden Rock on June 9-11, Italy's Gods of Metal on June 11-12 and France's Fury Fest on June 24-26).

Last year's Ozzfest was one of the heaviest in the tour's history, featuring Sabbath, a reunited Judas Priest, Slayer, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Dimmu Borgir, Hatebreed and others.

BLS, Rob Zombie, Mudvayne, KSE To Play Ozzfest 05?

Word has it that BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and ROB ZOMBIE have both secured slots on the 10-year-anniversary edition of Ozzfest, with Zakk Wylde's troupe slated to kick off the proceedings on the main stage.

As previously reported, IRON MAIDEN are set to co-headline the entire event with BLACK SABBATH, although recent reports indicate that OZZY OSBOURNE (with Zakk Wylde on guitar) may attempt to stage a solo performance at this year's festival. Also expected to perform on the main stage is the "Among the Living" lineup of ANTHRAX, which has already been confirmed for three European festivals this spring/summer (Holland's Dynamo Open Air on May 7, Sweden's Sweden Rock on June 9-11 and Italy's Gods of Metal on June 11-12) prior to their appearance at Ozzfest.

MSNBC: Darkthrone A Better Grammy Choice?

CONVERGE, SATYRICON and... DARKTHRONE...? Those are the unlikely alternate Grammy nominees suggested to MSNBC recently by "Sound of the Beast" author Ian Christe. "Then again," Christe told the Microsoft-backed news network, "DARKTHRONE already refused their nomination for the Norwegian version of the awards. These back-slapping events are viewed by most metalheads with a lot of skepticism."

Christe also told MSNBC this year's real Grammy nominees for Metal Performance (CRADLE OF FILTH, MOTÖRHEAD, HATEBREED, KILSWITCH ENGAGE, and SLIPKNOT) are "a shock... they actually represent what metal kids are into - instead of the usual out-of-date record company executive's misunderstanding of heavy metal... All five bands nominated began on indie-specialty labels, then worked their way to the mainstream over years. Normally, I'd hope in vain that MOTÖRHEAD would win, just as an excuse to see Lemmy wearing a tuxedo. But it would really be a boon to heavy metal for any of the younger bands to take the prize."

The Grammys will be handed out Feb. 13. The Metal Performance award will NOT be televised.

Slipknot Report From Vancouver, BC

In support of their new album "Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses," Slipknot did a trans-Canada tour, touching down some of the bigger Canadian cities. I attended the last date (January 16) of the tour at the PNE Forum in Vancouver, BC. I arrived an hour before the doors opened and there was already a long line up of dedicated Slipknot fans, a few of them with masks, waiting in the cold and rain. No offense to anyone under 19, but all-ages shows are annoying because they generally attract teenyboppers and angry kids out to prove how cool they think they are even though they came with their parents. But I was glad to see the crowd wasn't as bad as some other concerts I've been to. However, there was this little boy of about 2-3 years of age, who wore a mask and an oversized Slipknot shirt that went down to his knees. I guess Slipknot appeals to audiences of all ages. More...

Canada sure loves their metal and is slowly becoming our home away from home.

Killswitch Engage Singer Sat Out Toronto Show

Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones was forced to sit out the band's performance in Toronto on Sunday (01/09) due to a "blown-out" throat (as guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz put it in a public announcement before their set). Trevor Phipps from support act Unearth joined Killswitch Engage on stage for a few songs, despite having little knowledge of the lyrics. Two fans who apparently knew the songs were also pulled from the crowd to help out in the vocal department, with one managing to sing the entire song "When Darkness Falls". But after four tracks, and a tired Phipps, the band called it a night.

Killswitch Engage's set list for the Toronto show on January 9 (without singer Howard Jones!):

01. The End Of Heartache
02. Life To Lifeless
03. When Darkness Falls
04. My Last Serenade

Metal Strikes Back in 2004

An article has been posted on FMQB.com listing the heavy metal moments of 2004, from the formation of new bands to the new releases of older bands. An excerpt from the article:

2004 will definitely be thought of as a year when Metal made an official "come back" in the commercial world. This is not to say that Metal ever went away, but like any genre, it ebbs and flows, and this year brought a tidal wave of good music. The beginning of the year was dominated by strong releases from Iced Earth, Damageplan, the re-united Fear Factory and Dave Grohl's Probot project, which featured Grohl backing up singers like Lemmy from Motorhead and King Diamond.

3 Inches Of Blood Answers Fan Questions

More answers are in from 3 Inches Of Blood frontman Cam Pipes on the latest installment of answers from Ask the Artist. The latest questions answered are as follows:

Question: how in the name of all that is holy do you manage to hit those high notes, and do you have any special tricks for beginning vocalists?

Cam: I'm no expert in the matter because I've never taken vocal lessons. I just sing along to my favorite albums and attempt to do what they're doing. Gargling with cold water before a show helps me warm up.

Question: As a musician, starting out, what advice can you give about writing your own music and getting it heard?

Cam: Play shows in your home town fairly often for a while to build up your chops as a live band. Eventually you should aim for playing most of your shows out of town because ultimately it's the fans in other cities that will appreciate you more than your home town will.

For all of Cam's answers, click here.
