Blender.com has posted online a video interview with "The Women Of Ozzfest.". Included in the video is Candace from Walls Of Jericho, Marta from Bleeding Through, and Christina from Lacuna Coil.
Another year, another Ozzfest. After a star-studded lineup for its ten year anniversary last year, Ozzfest was faced with the challenge of putting together yet another great lineup for its eleventh year. When I went to Bristow, VA on Sunday, August 6, 2006, I was wondering just how good a lineup they managed to scrape together. I knew the bands that were playing, but the real question remained whether the main stage bands could hold their own with primarily younger, nu-metal bands on it and Ozzy closing out the second stage.
The temperatures had fortunately dropped from the 105F degree humid days of only a few days earlier, but the sky was crystal clear for most of the day and the intense sun beating down on you in the 90F degree temperatures was still enough to take a lot out of you and require constant re-hydration.

Walls Of Jericho's video for their track "A Trigger Full Of Promises" has been posted online for viewing here. The song is taken from the groups new album "With Devils Amongst Us All", which will hit stores on August 22nd through Trustkill.
Walls Of Jericho's new song "And Hope To Die" has been posted online here. The song will appear on the groups upcoming new album "With Devils Amongst Us All", which will arrive in stores on August 22nd via Trustkill.
Massachusetts ALL THAT REMAINS has unveiled the debut video from the bands forthcoming album, The Fall of Ideals. The video for the albums lead track, This Calling, was directed by Frankie Nasso (Mudvayne, Hatebreed) of Raging Nations films and is online here.
Shot at the end of May in the now-abandoned Hancock Naval Base in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, the videos concept revolves around the "calling" itself being represented by the voice of hope breaking free from a tainted and twisted state of mind. More...
WALLS OF JERICHO have set an August 22 release date for their upcoming full-length album, "With Devils Amongst Us All". The band will be building the hype and playing new material through their appearance on the Ozzfest second stage this summer. Leading up to those dates the band has a Canadian tour with UNEARTH, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE RED CHORD and A LIFE ONCE LOST.
WALLS OF JERICHO, who deliver a fierce onslaught of metallic venom in their guitars while retaining the grit of hardcore/punk, will be the only female-fronted band on Ozzfest's second stage this year.
Regarding the upcoming album, guitarist Mike Hasty said, "[It is] the most varied music we've ever written. It's a lot more anthemic whereas our older material was more about aggression than composition." More...
Walls Of Jericho have finished filming a video for the song, "A Trigger Full of Promises," the first single from the group's upcoming Trustkill Records release. Directed by Dale Resteghini, the video was shot in one day "in discarded prison cells located deep in the rural countryside of Pennsylvania." According to drummer Dustin Schoenhofer, "We wanted the video to be full of dark undertones, to match the lyrical theme of the song."
It comes as little surprise that Avenged Sevenfold have been officially confirmed as the mystery band on the main stage for Ozzfest 2006. The real surprise announcement is that power metal band Dragonforce, recently signed to Roadrunner Records in North America and rumored to be joining Gigantour 2006, has been added as the main stage opener as well.
Ozzy Osbourne is now slated to headline the second stage on three dates (replacing some dates that he was previously thought to be headlining the main stage):
July 8 - San Bernardino, CA's Hyundai Pavilion of Glen Helen
July 11 - San Antonio, TX at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
July 22 - East Troy, WI at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre
OZZY says, "After 10 years of headlining Ozzfest's main-stage I think it's time for a change. I haven't had a chance to play this close to an audience in years and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it."
Also announced is that Ozzfest emcee Big Dave and professional Ozzfest party guy, Eddie, have begun their nationwide search visiting 19 of the festival's 26 cities to find the first-ever Miss Ozzfest. The duo will be accepting entries and taking photographs of Miss Ozzfest candidates in each city. Throughout the summer the Ozzfest fans can vote for your favorites at Ozzfest.com. All entries collected from Big Dave and Eddie will be posted for you to vote on. The top three in each city will be awarded FREE tickets to the show in their city, where at some point during the evening's festivities, the three contestants will be presented on stage to the fans who will vote on a winner. Photos of each winning contestant, including the top vote getters from Raleigh and West Palm Beach, will be posted once again on Ozzfest.com, where fans can pick their Miss Ozzfest 2006. Final voting will be held at Ozzfest.com on August 7 and 8. The winning beauty will be awarded the grand prize and receive round trip airfare and accommodations for her and a guest to attend the year's final show August 13 in West Palm Beach where she'll be crowned Miss Ozzfest 2006.

Trustkill Records, indie rock powerhouse label, have announced their first-ever package tour, to be called the Trustkill Takeover our. The North American trek, which will take place in May, will feature the U.K.'s hottest export BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE on headlining duty. The Wales-based band are currently wrapping up a successful U.S. run on the ROB ZOMBIE/LACUNA COIL tour. BULLET fever, which is in full swing through Europe, sees the band securing the honored spot of opening for GUNS N' ROSES and METALLICA on select European shows. Speaking on the upcoming Trustkill Takeover run, frontman Matt Tuck says, "I'm completely stoked on our first real headlining tour of the States. It's a real chance to show everyone what BULLET is made of." Appearing in the middle slot is the Detroit's WALLS OF JERICHO, who have just been confirmed for the second stage at this year's Ozzfest. Fronted by Candace Kucsulain and powered by the thrash-bred guitar team of Mike Hasty and Chris Rawson, WALLS OF JERICHO recently hunkered down in Cleveland with producer Ben Schigel (CHIMAIRA, ZAO, RINGWORM) to record their upcoming album, "With Devils Amongst Us All", to be released this summer. Candace Kucsulain confirmed that they will be perfoming four or five new songs from the upcoming album per night and Mike Hasty says of the new material, "It's definitely the most varied music we've ever written and it's a lot more anthemic whereas our older material was more about aggression than composition."

MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.
On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.
In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

Fresh off the Sounds of the Underground tour, MADBALL have announced a headlining tour of the U.S. The New York hardcore heroes will hit the national circuit with support from WALLS OF JERICHO, MISERY SIGNALS and FULL BLOWN CHAOS. This tour will be the band's first following the release of their new full-length and first for Ferret Records, entitled "Legacy", this August. Produced by Zeuss (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL), the album is the largest sounding MADBALL record while retaining all the signature grittiness of their live shows. True to its name, "Legacy" is the perfect stone monument to hang MADBALL's name on. A video for the song, "HeavenHell", directed by Dale Resteghini (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), will premiere on "Headbanger's Ball" when the band takes over as guests on the episode airing on August 13. The episode promises to be an informative one as host Jamey Jasta is a longtime fan and MADBALL were one of the first bands to take HATEBREED on tour early on. The video will also premiere on Fuse TV's "Metal Asylum", which will have the band on as guests on an episode airing the third week of August. More...
