Leaves' Eyes / Atrocity Drummer Recaps NAMM

Former Opiate for the Masses, current Leaves' Eyes and Atrocity drummer Seven Antonopolous has checked in with the following recap of NAMM:

"Hello everyone! I wanted to drop a few lines about our NAMM adventures. As most of you are probably awere, The Namm Convention is the largest trade/expo show here in the United States. But, more than that it's a great excuse for muscians to hang out, drink excessive amounts of whisky and interact with fans! Thursday night we went to see Simon phillips at the Hyatt hotel. I ended up doing shots with a couple crazy Germans go figure: Chris Koch my European Sabian rep and Christoph Schneider/Rammstein. Needless to say, we had a blast while Johnny Tempesta/The Cult and Charlie Benante/Anthrax brought down the house. So,friday it was myself,Christoph/Rammstein and Shawn/Megadeth at Vic Firth. Many thanks to Marco (The master of the grappa) for having us! Christoph, Shawn and I are really good friends and it's always cool hanging out for 'official business'! That night was the Sabian event Jojo Mayer played, always a real treat to see him play. Really inspiring! That brings us to saturday, and a pretty good size hangover! I was at the Sabian booth with a gang of shredders as well as good friends. Myself, Ray/Korn, Xavier/BuckCherry, Shawn/Megadeth. Ray and I did a drum clinic tour together for Sabian last November. He's one of my favorite players.
As always a Huge thank you to Chris Stankee and everyone at Sabian For a kiler time! I'd Also like to thank Vega, Garrison, Donell and all at D W drums! (special thanks, Vega getting me to my room thursday night!) In addition, Chris Brady and all at Aquarian drumheads! This was an Awesome NAMM and again thanks to all my endorsers for taking care of me all year long! Nothin' but the best!"

Leaves' Eyes Issues Tour Recap

Leaves' Eyes has issued the following tour recap and year end update:

Dear Friends and Fans,

We just finished our European tour with Arch Enemy, Mercenary and Sister Sin, which we played with our new line-up for the first time. We’re really feeling like a unity, having a great time on the road although we had to go through some technical problems here an there. It was very nice to meet our fans and friends again!

One of the finest moments on this tour was playing with Doro, celebrating her 25th anniversary together with 8.000 fans and other bands and musicians. We also played at the 25th anniversary of Germany’s first Metal temple, the Rockfabrik Ludwigsburg, situated in our hometown. This was a very special night for everybody. More...

Arch Enemy Recaps December Tyranny Tour

Arch Enemy vocalist, Angela Gossow, has posted this message:

"We had a blast, thanx to our wonderful German friends & fans and touring with a killer line-up, really cool people and the best crew in the whole world! Rene from Mercenary actually took the time to write a review of the tour for my forum on www.AngelaGossow.Com - go and check it out!

"They also got an in depth tour report on the Mercenary Myspace Page, plus their kick-butt version of BURNING ANGEL in their player. Listen and bang your head!

"Sister Sin are young, tight and simply awesome and their take on hardrocking metal always put a smile on my face and made me tap my feet. Watch out for these guys and gal - they will get to you! And thanx for getting our gear from and back to Sweden again! We love you!!!

"Leaves Eyes - I got to meet Alex and Liv, both very sweet people. Not sure if they felt 'at home' as they were def the odd band out and my death metal soul doesnt really resonate with their quiet tunes. I hope they enjoyed it nevertheless- I loved the diversity of this tour line-up and the different dynamics each band brought to the table.

"Special thanx go out to Dirk Lehberger for making sense of the daily chaos, Clem Bennett for the best sound ever, Eddie for multitasking as drum tech and monitor tech (and being brilliant and never out of breath despite the heavy work load), Merch Chris for selling out our last stock and Swiss Samael Chris for a light show that left people in awe and hopefully cross eyed for the rest of the night! You all were wonderful and made IT happen. We would be lost without you and could hardly tie our shoe laces on our own I am afraid..

"And a big THANK YOU to DORO for inviting us to her 25 year anniversary show! We had a short, but raging set and I hope she enjoyed her massive bash.. I think the stress backstage would have killed me..

"It was also fun to meet my old pal Pete (from Asmodina and Mistress) again who played in Pratteln and Bad Arolsen with his new band All We Hate!

"I hope you all have relaxing holidays and a great 2009!!!"

Arch Enemy Reveals DVD Release Date

Arch Enemy will be releasing a brand new DVD / Live 2-CD, entitled “Tyrants Of The Rising Sun – Live In Japan,” on November 24th in Europe and November 25th in North America via Century Media Records. The DVD contains a live-show filmed in Tokyo earlier this year, an in-depth 40 minutes road-movie feature, and all promo video clips so far shot for the band’s latest album, “Rise Of The Tyrant.” Further details on the formats and packaging will be disclosed soon. In the meantime, here is the track-listing of the live show:

1. Intro / Blood On Your Hands
2. Ravenous
3. Taking Back My Soul
4. Dead Eyes See No Future
5. Dark Insanity
6. The Day You Died
7. Christopher Solo
8. Silverwing
9. Night Falls Fast
10. Daniel Solo
11. Burning Angel
12. Michael Solo (Incl. Intermezzo Liberté)
13. Dead Bury Their Dead
14. Vultures
15. Enemy Within
16. Snowbound
17. Shadows And Dust
18. Nemesis
19. We Will Rise
20. Fields Of Desolation / Outro

Guitarist Michael Amott comments on the release as follows: “People are always asking us about Japan and the fans there… It is well known that Arch Enemy has been the most successful extreme metal band in the Japanese market for 10+ years, so we thought it’d be cool to show the Arch Enemy fans worldwide what it’s like when we tour there, this is your backstage pass to Arch Enemy, Nippon style! A lot of people felt that we raised the bar significantly with the quality of the ‘Live Apocalypse’ DVD – and I agree that was a great DVD, but I believe this monumental experience, that we are calling ‘Tyrants Of The Rising Sun’ filmed totally in high definition, - will leave you floored! With the metal world’s #1 producer Andy Sneap mixing the audio and the brilliant Paul Smith editing and directing the visuals, the results are impressive! And Niklas Sundin of Cabin Fever Media bringing in some of the best artwork I’ve ever seen from him - we have a new DVD that we are very proud to present to our fans!”

Following up the release date of the live-album, Arch Enemy have announced the final line-up for a string of European "December Tyranny" tour dates with Leaves' Eyes, Mercenary and Sister Sin. Dates are as follows:

Dec. 12 Uden, NL @ De Pul
Dec. 15 Pratteln, CH @ Z 7
Dec. 17 Ludwigsburg, D @ Rockfabrik
Dec. 18 Aschaffenburg, D @ Colos-Saal
Dec. 19 Bad Arolsen, D @ Outback

Arch Enemy’s vocalist, Angela Gossow, comments on the shows as follows: “This is a very diverse and exciting line-up we got together for these shows – A truly special run! Not only is this the first time in our history we tour with other female fronted bands, but we managed to cross over heavy metal, melodic metal, thrash/death metal and gothic metal in one billing. And Mercenary’s power metal version of ‘Burning Angel’ (you can find this on the new Century Media release ‘Covering 20 Years of Extremes) def. got stuck in my ears! Sister Sin is an upcoming, hard rocking act from Sweden… And Leaves Eyes will clearly be the ‘Beauty’ whilst Arch Enemy proudly represents the ‘Beast’! Be there when the revolution begins!”

In other news, Arch Enemy's cover of the Dream Evil classic "The Book Of Heavy Metal" is now posted at www.myspace.com/centurymediaeurope. The track comes off “Covering 20 Years Of Extremes,” Century Media’s 20th-anniversary compilation, which is available in stores now. It contains 32 mostly exclusive recordings where CM artists cover songs from other acts within the label’s repertoire.

"We are terribly sorry to tell you that our record label (Napalm Records) has decided to cancel our upcoming North American tour.

This enhances greatly an already highly anticipated tour of the U.S. and Canada alongside Amorphis and Samael. Bless thy bleeding ears."

Liv Kristine Signs To Napalm For Solo Albums

Liv Kristine of Leaves' Eyes has signed to Napalm Records to release solo work. She gave the following statement about the deal:

"I am very happy and proud to announce that I just signed a contract for my next few solo albums with Napalm Records. My decision to take this step is easily explainable; I am very satisfied with the cooperation between Napalm Records and Leaves' Eyes so far. I appreciate the work of everybody working at Napalm Records and I have a good feeling about our past and future cooperation. Having both my solo project and Leaves' Eyes on one label makes it a lot easier for label, band, co-musicians and me to coordinate everything, especially when it comes to planning and organising tours, productions, promotion work etc. In the nearest future I will certainly pay a visit to beautiful Eisenerz and show Max a few ideas I've already been working on for my third solo album."
