2008 has become an extremely exciting year in the history of Century Media Records, one of the world's most respected independent homes for heavy music, as the label is celebrating its 20th anniversary!
The company's Anniversary year started off with an extremely successful, first-ever yard sale/party at the Century Media office in Dortmund (Germany) in June, where several hundred guests partied out on exclusive live shows by Angel Dust and Turisas. A video with impressions from the event can be seen at this location. A photo gallery for this event can be viewed here.
To further celebrate this anniversary Century Media Records will release the very special 2CD compilation "Covering 20 Years Of Extremes" on September 15th in Europe and on October 14th in North America. The various artists covers-release includes 32 mostly exclusive recordings and will be available in stores for the price of one CD. Sticking to the "keep it in the family" slogan, CM approached their artists about covering songs from other acts within the label's repertoire and the response from the musicians was overwhelming.
Some choices were obvious and homages to the bands that influenced them, others were inspired picks. This combination ended up leading to a heavily entertaining and truly special final result across all sub-genres of heavy music.

Billboard.com reports: Ozzfest 2008, with Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne as headliners, grossed nearly $3.5 million and drew close to 30,000 people to Dallas' Pizza Hut Park, according to producers Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live.
Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year's Ozzfest marked the return of the 13-year-old hard music brand after a free run at amphitheaters last year. This year's one-off event did "fantastically well," Sharon Osbourne told Billboard.com. "The one thing is you want for the kids to go away and keep talking about what a great show it was, and that's what they're doing."
In addition to Metallica and Osbourne, mainstage acts were Serj Tankian, Hellyeah, Johnathan Davis, Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica, and In This Moment. The second stage featured Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. On the third stage were the Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, Within Chaos, The Destro and "battle of the bands" winners Debris and Black Tooth.
Osbourne says plans are for Ozzfest to return to Dallas again next summer, likely as a two-day festival, and other cities are also being considered. "Ozzfest ain't going anywhere," she says. "We do try and shake things up and experiment. We're not the old donkey that plods on doing the same sh*t."

IN THIS MOMENT have issued the following update:
"We have received a ton of messages in response to our Ozzfest 2008 announcement, there have been lots of questions and some confusion regarding Ozzfest 2008 and we feel that they need to be addressed. First off everyone is asking if Ozzfest 2008 is a one day show or if its a full tour, the press release states that it is a ONE DAY destination event, so yes everyone Ozzfest this year is ONE DAY August 9th in Dallas Texas. The fact that it will only be one day this year seems to have really pissed off a lot of people who don't live in Texas, we understand being disappointed about something like this because Ozzfest has become something alot of people have come to count on every year, it's ok to be disappointed, we get it, we would love to tour the whole country with this amazing package too, but guess what.....its only one show this year so we have to deal with it. The people who are bashing Ozzy and Sharon with words like "betrayed" or "fucked over" are way out of line. Ozzy and Sharon created this innovative festival that gave metal and rock lovers across the U.S. a chance to see a bunch of awesome bands each year, they also gave numerous underground bands a chance to play in front of thousands of people who otherwise would have never known about them, they blazed the trail for every other hard rock/metal festival out there today and they even made it free last year, people should show a little respect. Ozzy has been on tour for 11 months, if he decides not to do a full Ozzfest tour this year that's his business. Ozzy and Sharon have given In This Moment some amazing opportunities over the last 2 years and we have nothing but the utmost respect for them and what they do . That being said please stop sending messages bashing Ozzfest or the Osbournes, we won't post them, so it's a waste of your time. We love our fans and we know some of you are disappointed so let me assure you, we will be touring our asses off starting in September and we will be coming to your town. Hang tight, we love you all, see you soon."
As previously reported, Ozzfest will be a one day even this year, taking place on August 9th in Dallas, Texas. Two more acts have been added to the "Texas Stage", namely The Destro and Within Chaos.
The lineup so far is as follows:
Main Stage: OZZY OSBOURNE, METALLICA, SERJ TANKIAN, HELLYEAH, JONATHAN DAVIS, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SHADOWS FALL, APOCALYPTICA, IN THIS MOMENT, All-Star Tribute To "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
Second Stage: SEVENDUST, DEVILDRIVER, KINGDOM OF SORROW, SOILENT GREEN, WITCHCRAFT, GOATWHORE.
Texas Stage: THE SWORD, DROWNING POOL, RIGOR MORTIS, WITHIN CHAOS, THE DESTRO.
OZZFEST--the original and iconic hard rock festival--returns in 2008 as a one-day stadium spectacular on Saturday, August 9 in Dallas, Texas that teams OZZFEST founder and namesake Ozzy Osbourne (in his only U.S. concert appearance this summer) with Metallica (marking their OZZFEST debut).
Produced by Sharon Osbourne and AEG LIVE, the all-day festival at Pizza Hut Park in hard music-loving Dallas will feature three stages of non-stop talent (with many OZZFEST alumni) and reliably twisted OZZFEST side attractions.
The full main stage lineup will also spotlight performances by Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Hellyeah, Jonathan Davis (Korn), Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica and In This Moment. Also scheduled on the main stage is a special all-star tribute to slain Pantera guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott. Second stage acts include Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. The Texas (third) stage—“an homage to the “many great metal bands that come from Texas,” says Sharon Osbourne--features The Sword, Drowning Pool and Rigor Mortis.
“Ozzy just finished an 11-month world tour so I think he deserves a summer off,” Sharon says about this year’s one-day OZZFEST. “We’re going to be a stadium destination festival for now--we have gone past doing the sheds every summer. We’ve given everyone else the blueprint and we have to keep evolving OZZFEST. This is just the beginning; AEG Live and I have a lot of new ideas for OZZFEST."
This year’s dynamic line-up encompasses artists who’ve played OZZFEST before in different incarnations such as Serj Tankian (System of a Down); Jonathan Davis (Korn); Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and Chad Gray (Mudvayne); Kingdom of Sorrow’s Jamie Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kirk Windstein (Down); and Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura) of Cavalara Conspiracy. Other OZZFEST graduates include Shadows Fall, Sevendust, Devildriver, Drowning Pool and In This Moment.
“Ozzy has great relationships with all of the bands that have played OZZFEST,” says Sharon. “We’re the only real festival for harder edge bands and these artists have been very loyal to us--there is lots of love on this line-up."

Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT is currently catching the attention of thousands of people across North America opening for the legendary OZZY OSBOURNE and ROB ZOMBIE. This massive three-month arena tour — which runs through early next year — afforded the band an opportunity to perform a monumental show at the Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles this past weekend. The event was a massive success as the group prepares to close out the year on stage at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Commented guitarist Chris Howorth: "We just played our hometown show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and it was absolutely fantastic. All our friends and family got to see us at this huge arena opening for OZZY OSBOURNE and ROB ZOMBIE! It's a dream come true for us.
"Taking the stage at an arena show in L.A. is a feeling that is beyond words to describe, especially for a band that started out having to buy tickets to play The Whisky.
"We are really excited about every show on this tour because they are all amazing, but we are a little extra pumped up about the Madison Square Garden show in New York. It's a Christmas show with Ozzy at one of the most famous arenas in the U.S.
"It's crazy to think about all the legendary sporting events that have taken place and all the huge bands that have played at that venue. I am beyond excited to be playing there and it doesn't seem real.
"I am so thankful for where we are and what we are doing right now."
IN THIS MOMENT's debut album, "Beautiful Tragedy" (Century Media Records), has sold 38,000 copies in the United States since its March 20, 2007 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
