Burning Skies Seeking New Drummer

Burning Skies is seeking a new drummer. Here's the post from the band:

"Unfortunately Phil's, rather unexpectedly, decided to step down from the drum throne. His heart isn't in it anymore and we wish him well. We're all pretty stunned at the moment so i'm just going to keep it short and sweet.

"Obviously we're in need of a new sticksman and we're going to get the ball rolling as we have quite a few dates and tours in the pipeline. If you think you're the right guy/gal for the job then drop us a line. Video of you playing would be appreciated and if it's any of our songs then even better. Either contact us here or on burning_skies_of_death@yahoo.co.uk."

Origin Now on Necrophagist, Misery Index Euro Tour

Kansas-based death metallers ORIGIN have officially been confirmed for the European tour featuring NECROPHAGIST and MISERY INDEX. Credited with having created some of the most challenging and devastating death metal in its three-album career, ORIGIN is an incredible addition to this blistering package as the replacement for COLDWORKER, who had to pull off the trek due to "scheduling conflicts." Dubbed the "Carving Europe's Epitaph Vol. II" tour, the bill is rounded out by BURNING SKIES opening the first half of the tour while U.S. act DISKREET will be opening up the second half of the tour.

For a list of confirmed tour dates, click here.

ORIGIN's third full-length CD, "Echoes of Decomation", was released in March 2005 via Relapse Records.
