South Carolina hardcore outfit Charge The Mound recently changed their name to Sinking. According to the band, "We changed our name because our original was not given enough thought. We never thought that we would get this far as a band and we would never want to put out a serious release with a serious message with a joke name."
Meanwhile, the group is currently finishing up their Dead Truth Recordings debut, which will be out this summer.
Editor's note: Someone should tell these guys that there is already a band by the name of sinking from Turenki, Finland.
Tuska Open Air Metal Festival has added more international and Finnish acts to the 2005 roster. The line-up is almost complete with only 1 more artist to be added for Saturday afternoon as well as the winner from the band contest at Rotonde-Festival, France, which is to be held later this spring. This year's Tuska-Festival is more international than ever, with nearly half of the artists coming from abroad. The evening clubs will most likely see some international action as well.
New additions in Finnish professionalism will be represented by Apocalyptica, whose cello metal is witnessed way too rarely on their native soil. Apocalytica just recently supported Rammstein on their European tour and appeared stateside on a few selected dates.
German precision and universal greatness is brought to you by the mighty Gamma Ray. The band last appeared on the bill at Tuska 2000 and have since built their fanbase by selling out club shows on a regular basis.
Other additions include up-and-coming death metallers Amoral, Finnish-singing Stam1na and Viikate, as well as Callisto who are about to embark on a European tour in a few weeks.
The search continues for one more, either domestic or foreign artist.
