Extreme metal titans, CRYPTOPSY, have been forced to cancel their recently announced tour of South America in March, after drummer Flo Mounier broke his knee cap. Mounier had completed the drum tracking process for the group’s new album prior to the incident, so it did not affect the recording. The tour of South America is expected to be re-scheduled later in 2008.
Cryptopsy are currently putting the finishing touches on their sixth full-length, The Unspoken King, which will surface through Century Media this summer. The group recently announced the addition of new frontman Matt McGachy (3 MILE SCREAM) and keyboards/samplist Maggie Durand to their lineup.
Alex Auburn (guitars) states: “Right now the band is plunged deeply into the production of the new album and so far everything is going well. Fans will be amazed by the diversity and open minded vision of extremes for this particular entity. Some song titles we’ve been working on are ‘Worship Your Demons', ‘Resurgence Of An Empire’ and ‘Silence The Tyrants'. More news to follow soon.” More...
DECREPIT BIRTH have posted the following update:
“Well, as mentioned in the title of the blog we are very disappointed to announce that we had to drop of the BDM tour due to road closures and bad weather in Wyoming. We really want to apologize to everyone who came out, or was going to come out to watch us play. We owe you all big time. We’re planning a bit of a makeup tour for the future so that you guys don’t miss out on our live set. We are very grateful to everyone on this tour package, bands and crew. Everyone treated us so well. We hope people understand that a combination of brutal weather, road closures, and the loss of heat in our piece of shit vehicle were the only reasons we decided to turn around. These elements rendered us into a position where we could not catch up with the rest of the tour. Our last night in Boise, Idaho was so awesome, but we didn’t have a clue that it was our last show of the tour. We want to thank all of our friends and fans for the best support ever, we promise to make this up. The shows we did enjoy on this tour kicked so much ass!!! This tour absolutely changed our lives, and despite the set backs, we had a killer time!”

Our good friends in THE RED CHORD will be coming out and joining us for the last 4 shows (Sauget, Chicago, Cleveland Detroit). Again these shows are NOT canceled, we will be there every night! Thanks to everyone who’s come out to any of the shows for all the support.”

3 INCHES OF BLOOD has cancelled its remaining US tour dates with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, HATE ETERNAL and DECREPIT BIRTH, as well as Canadian dates with RAMMER due to inclement weather and safety concerns.
Cam Pipes said today, "It was not an easy decision to make, but due to the rapidly declining weather in the remaining areas of the tour, we have decided that it would be unsafe to continue touring in these conditions. We have had a great time with all the bands on this tour, so it is especially disappointing to have to cancel our remaining appearances. We are committed to rescheduling the shows when the weather is safer and the roads less treacherous. Sorry to disappoint anybody, but we would rather stay safe and live to play another day."
