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.

Toxic Holocaust Posts Fifth Day Studio Report

Toxic Holocaust have posted the following message from their fifth day recording their new album "An Overdose Of Death":

"Day Five began with some more bass. We haven't done too much experimenting with the bass sounds, we got a sound we like and kept it going.

Did bass on 3 songs and then switched to guitar. Now with guitars, we have been mixing it up a bit, using different amp combinations and distortions. It's giving a lot of character to each song.

After a short break we recorded vocals for 3 tracks. 'Nuke The Cross' was the first one recorded today, then 'Gravelord' and finally 'Feedback, Blood and Distortion'.

It was getting late by this point (13 1/2 hours in today) so we called it a day. It's starting to actually sound like a record..."

Toxic Holocaust Posts Second Day Studio Report

Toxic Holocaust have posted the following studio update:

"On day two in the studio we started by recording the drums again. Donny banged out 6 more songs. Things are shaping up nicely.

We have 4 more drum tracks to cut then it's on to the guitars, bass and vocals. Actually, we had some time last night and I did the rhythm guitars for 3 songs.

We used my Marshall and strangely enough a '67 Fender amp that the studio owns. We put a distortion pedal in front of it and it sounds savage!"

Toxic Holocaust recently announced that they will join the reunited AT THE GATES on their upcoming North American tour. This tour, which also includes DARKEST HOUR and MUNICIPAL WASTE, will kick-off on July 9th in New York City.

Toxic Holocaust Posts First Day Studio Report

Toxic Holocaust have posted the following message from the studio:

"Hell-o all,

Today was day number one in the studio for the new Toxic record. We are recording with Jack Endino at the Sound House in Seattle. This record marks the first time I won't be playing drums, instead I've got Donny Paycheck (ZEKE) handling the metallic wooden coffins.

So far, so good. The first half of the day was spent getting drum sounds and the other half was spent tracking drums. We were in there for about 11 hours today, and it looks like we have 5 keepers. The drums are sounding monstrous. Expect drums that sounds like drums...no lame triggers or shit like that.

Check back tomorrow for another update...."
