Cellador On Upcoming Trivium Tour

Omaha Power-metallers are proud to announce their addition to the east coast dates of the Trivium U.S. tour!

Cellador guitarist Chris Petersen comments, "We are proud to announce that we have been invited for a swing of East Coast and Canada dates with metal masters Trivium running from the 1st of October through to the 9th. It's an honor and privilege to share the stage with one of the young purveyors of today's modern American metal revitalization, and it is a pleasure to be joining them for the starting leg of their first ever North American headlining tour. We are looking forward to heading back out to the East Coast, where we met some of our most devoted friends and fans during our recently completed summer US tour. The support and energy we felt and received was far beyond anything we could have imagined for our band this early on in our careers, and thus we anxiously await heading back out on the road to meet all our new friends again as well as all the new ones we hope to make as well. We have had many emails and messages from fans and friends in Canada who have been waiting to see us, and we are excited to finally be able to come out and perform for all of you. We have a new variety of merch that will be available exclusively on this tour, so be to stop by our booth and have yourself a look (we're always over there anyway). See you guys soon!"

This Week In Metal - August 10th, 2006

Welcome to the return of This Week In Metal, a column I used to do before I was forced to take a hiatus from metalunderground.com. In this weekly column, we will update the top 10 selling albums in the metal industry (courtesy of CMJ) and the top 10 radio singles (pulled from Music Match). They use a number of sources for the list, including all satellite radio. While you may find a few bands that are too soft for the list, I assure you there will be more then enough surprises. Feel free to comment on the list and who you think is over/under-rated, what bands you expected to see and which ones you didn't. Again this column will run weekly, so be sure to check for it every Thursday in the columns area of MetalUnderground.com.

Now for the music, we will start each week with the albums. It's a good mix of what bands are bursting the underground, and some bands that have been killing for quite a while now.

1Shadows FallFallout From The War11
2SYLThe New Black 12
3All That RemainsThe Fall Of Ideas13
4DragonforceInhuman Range14
5Cattle DecapitationKarma.Bloody.Karma15
6Stone SourCome What(ever) May16
7 BTBAMThe Anatomy Of17
8CelladorEnter Deception18
9The Acacia StrainDead Walk19
10Bury Your DeadBeauty And The Breakdown110

Now for the tunes. These singles are a real who's who amongst metal right now. I find the list to be powerful and only really have one flaw. Keep in mind some songs have been out longer then others and have picked up a good fanbase on the radio, other songs have just come out and are sure to see their time at the top.

Cellador Signs To Metal Blade Records

CELLADOR is a melodic speed/power metal band from Omaha, Nebraska. Originally formed in Summer 2004 by guitarist Chris Petersen, CELLADOR was founded with the purpose of introducing aggressive European influenced melodic speed/power metal to the Midwest USA, where the style is completely nonexistent and virtually unknown. CELLADOR spent the fall and winter months of 2004 writing and rehearsing, and began playing live by March 2005. In May, CELLADOR came out with the demo, Leaving All Behind, which The Black Dahlia Murder guys passed on to Brain Slagel, after the band opened for them in Omaha. Impressed by their skill and musicianship, Brian Slagel offered the band a contract making them one of Metal Blade Records latest singings.

“I am truly excited about our latest signing, CELLADOR. They are a young band with incredible musicianship and songs. We have been looking just for this type of band who mix the old school metal with a fresh attitude.” Brian Slagel Owner/CEO Metal Blade Records Inc.

"We are very proud and excited to be welcomed to the METAL BLADE family. With its current roster and unprecedented history of dedication and integrity, it is with great honor and gratitude that we have been chosen and given the opportunity to represent true American melodic speed metal on one of the biggest labels in the world of metal. Their past success and dedication is only a greater source of inspiration now for us to press forth with pushing true metal to its extreme. Look out for us!!" Chris Petersen- Guitarist CELLADOR

Cellador is currently writing and rehearsing, and plan on recording this December with their debut Metal Blade release to be out sometime in the spring of 2006. To check out some of the bands triumphant songs head over to their MySpace page HERE.

In other news CELLADOR is currently auditioning for the position of lead guitar and keyboard player. The individual must excel in playing both lead and rhythm at slow to often very energetic speeds, and must also have and maintain a committed, motivated, and cooperative personality that benefits the band as a whole. The band would prefer a young and energetic individual between the ages of 18-24 who is able and willing to travel, and with a large background in metal. If interested, send an email with your name and past band experience to contact@cellador.com for more information.

9/03 Des Moines, IA House of Bricks (early show 5pm)
9/16 Omaha, NE Sokol Underground (7pm)
