NEMHF 2009 Adds Third Stage

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will introduce an additional stage this year dedicated to up and coming bands.

The third stage, sponsored by Deathcote Records, will be located at Chasers Nightclub, located behind the Palladium on the corner of Martin Luther King and Commercial streets. The main festival will be taking place at the Palladium.

“There are so many great bands and not enough time to get all of them on during the course of two days,” said festival co-organizer Sott Lee. “Adding a third stage is a great way for us to showcase some of the developing bands and it’s a terrific opportunity for these bands to play alongside some of today’s top metal and hardcore bands.”

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, with the Atticus pre-party on Thursday, April 16. This year’s event is presented by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars and Eden Electronics. Metal Blade Records will present the main stage. Prosthetic Records will present the second stage.

The Atticus-sponsored pre-party will be a unique event that will be combining film and music, kicking off with a screening of official film sponsor Anchor Bay's film "Crowley," co-written by none other than Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The provocative supernatural thriller is the tale of a virtual reality experiment gone wrong, sending the soul of the British occultist Aleister Crowley into the body of a shy university professor. But even as Crowley creates all-new orgies of depraved pleasures and black magic, he is now preparing to unleash the ultimate occult event upon the world. Also showing is "Anvil! The Story of Anvil," a sometimes revealing, sometimes hilarious documentary about the legendary Canadian metal band. The movie follows best friends Robb Reiner and Lips as they make a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, hailed as the "demi-gods of Canadian metal, " influenced a musical generation that includes Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams. The film will be followed by a performance by the band itself. The pre-party will also be held at the Palladium. Admission is free with a weekend pass or $15 for non-ticket holders.

Prices this year are $40 for Friday, $45 for Saturday or $79 for a 2-day ticket that also includes free admission to the kick off party on Thursday. Tickets are available at all Strawberries, FYE Stores, online at tickets.com or by calling (800) 477-6849. Tickets are available now.

Bands scheduled to perform this year include: More...

Type O Guitarist Joins Kingdom Of Sorrow On Tour

KINGDOM OF SORROW will be joined by Kenny Hickey of TYPE O NEGATIVE for a portion of dates on their upcoming North American tour with GWAR and label-mates TOXIC HOLOCAUST. Hickey will fill-in for Kirk Windstein, who will be on tour with DOWN in late October and November. Statements from Windstein, Hickey, and KOS's Jamey Jasta are below.

Kirk Windstein: "What's up everyone!? I just wanted to let you all know that we've found a GREAT fill in guitarist for yours truly, raging rocker and good friend Kenny Hickey of TYPE-O-NEGATIVE, and I couldn't be happier with the choice. He will be jamming with the young Jasta and crew during the first half of the GWAR tour so please go out and support KINGDOM OF SORROW while I am fulfilling my duties with DOWN. I wish I could rock in two places at once but my 1 priority is DOWN right now, we are touring with METALLICA and there's no way in hell I would miss that.

"I will however be playing the first couple of shows and the last leg of the tour with KINGDOM OF SORROW though, so don't fret! Come out and rock with us and buy the old one a cold one!!!"

Kenny Hickey: "About 2 weeks ago I was bitching to my daughter about how I needed to get back on the road - been home long enough and needed to break out. At that moment I received a text message from my friend Jamey Jasta. To my amazement he was asking me to hit the road with him with his new band KINGDOM OF SORROW! I would be filling in for Kirk whom I've known for years - way back to the beginning of the CROWBAR, TYPE O, PANTERA days. On top of that, TYPE O and HATEBREED had just finished tearing a hole through the states on a 7 week co-headlining tour which was over the top insanity and fun. I went out that next day and bought the Kingdom of Sorrow record and was sold immediately. I'm in boys.
We're gonna kick a hole in the universe!"

Jamey Jasta: "When DOWN was first confirmed on the METALLICA tour I really thought we would just have to cancel the GWAR run but Kirk INSISTED that I push on without him and do what's right for the fans and for KINGDOM OF SORROW. When faced with finding a suitable replacement for Kirk, Kenny Hickey instantly came to mind and I could not be happier that he is available and stoked to tour with us. I must say that Kenny is one of the most talented and underrated players out there in the rock / metal world and I had the time of my life touring with TYPE O this past summer.
We're pumped to be able to perform with KINGDOM OF SORROW in so many cities across the USA and Canada! Thanks for the support and we'll see you at the shows!"

Additionally, KINGDOM OF SORROW has announced a number of headlining dates leading up to the GWAR tour. The band will headline shows on their way to Florida to meet up with GWAR and TOXIC HOLOCAUST for the massive 12-week North American tour, hitting over 70 cities all across Canada and the U.S. A complete listing of confirmed tour dates and cities can be found below.

At The Gates Posts US Tour Update

At The Gates has posted the first of their US tour diary entries from their US tour with Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust:

"We arrived this Tuesday in New York. I (Anders) got in to JFK and took the bus across town to meet the other guys @ Newark airport.

"Our sound engineer Bo missed his connecting flight out of Amsterdam, and on top of that his bag was a.w.o.l upon arrival in JFK. And if that wasn't enough, he got an ear infection resulting in high fever, massive pain & distorted mono hearing. He seemed slightly better today. Got his bag from the airport and everything, but he's still feeling pretty shit.

"The first two gigs at Irving plaza were amazing. It was great to see the other bands on the bill enjoying some great crowd response, It was my (Tomas) impression that all bands have had really good gigs so far. The first gig was without AC, so it was like 120 degrees on stage :/

"We are enjoying this tour a lot so far, and it's amazing to see the crowd response after 12 years of silence. Thanks to all the people coming out and making this a special event."

You can check out some photos from the tour on At The Gates' MySpace blog as well.
