Metal and Hell,
The Haunted's show at Le Medley on April 16th has been combined with the SUFFOCATION tour package. That means it will be a co-headline bill with THE HAUNTED and SUFFOCATION and support from:

"We are so psyched and honored to be touring with The Haunted! It’s unbelievable that we will be playing on the same stage as a band that we would listen to in our bedrooms in high school and wished we could emulate. We are also extremely anxious to get back on the road in general and we are playing a lot of the same venues we have in the past so we hope to see some familiar faces out there! We’re also hitting a few new towns including central and western Canada…FINALLY!!!"

Metal group Nachtmystium has been removed by the organizers of the Scion Rock Fest after being accused of being a National Socialist band. A message from group member Blake Judd reads as follows:
“Nachtmystium has sad news today with a once-again recurring issue surfacing from the wake of our past. We’ve been forced, at the request of the promoters and the folks at Scion / Toyota, to pull out of the Scion Rock Fest, scheduled for Saturday, February 28. This news came to us just this past Tuesday and was very disheartening to say the least. A troubling, and unjustly-applied notion that we are, or ever have been, in any way, a ‘Nazi’ band or a political band on any level, is completely absurd and we are disgusted that there is someone out there who really believes we are of this ilk. It made it as far as the sponsors of this event’s desks, and now we are forced to pull out of it after some political threatening on the part of these ridiculously uneducated person/people who have caused this ruckus.
"We’d like to make light of at least one aspect of this situation and use the opportunity to once again clear the air - we are, IN NO WAY, a ‘Nazi’ band. We do NOT support such groups, political beliefs or bands that are affiliated with that world. We have canceled tours in the past and dodged working with bands and people BECAUSE they had these ideologies and we never wanted to be affiliated with it. Yet, here we are, a metal band whose members are more like hippies than your typical leather-clad metal maniacs, and we’re being falsely accused of this association once again. We will be taking legal action against the people who slandered us in this situation, and in the future will file defamation / slander charges against any person or organization who attempts to prevent us from performing anywhere, especially in the United States. We are as offended by this as someone might be at the notion of a Nazi band playing a big corporate-sponsored festival. So - let it be known loud and clear for the LAST TIME, we ARE NOT a Nazi band, ARE NOT political, are certainly NOT racists and DO NOT support that world or any band, person or business affiliated with it.
"My deepest apologies to all of our friends, fans and people who have worked on and supported us being a part of this festival, we are sorry for these awful circumstances and you can be certain this will not defeat us."
The Scion Rock Fest will take place on Saturday, February 28th at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia. The show will go from noon until midnight and attendees must be at least 18 years old. The line-up is as follows:
High on Fire
Wolves in the Throne Room
A Storm of Light

Contraband Candy went to Bristol in May and caught up with one of this year’s more unusual tour combinations – metal experimentalists Genghis Tron and up and coming "psychedelic black metallers" Nachtmystium.
Rene Ackermann spoke to Genghis Tron about their dark, visceral music as well as their bizarre longing for a tour bus like Dillinger Escape Plan, car crashes, and establishing their place in the Metal World without a drummer.
Chicago’s Nachtmystium talked about their new, highly acclaimed album, "Assassins: Black Meddle Part1," plus why this odd tour pairing is working for them and on being recognised by a famous Chicago Heavy Metal Burger joint.
GENGHIS TRON, fresh off the heels of a North American tour alongside CONVERGE and THE RED CHORD, are set to embark on their first European headlining tour in support of the recently released Board Up The House. This two-week tour begins Friday, May 9th, in the United Kingdom and includes support from NACHTMYSTIUM. The tour will also include a performance at the Noise Festival in Paris, France for GENGHIS TRON. A listing of GENGHIS TRON tour dates follows.
Additionally, GENGHIS TRON has recently completed work on a brand new video for Board Up The House track "Things Don't Look Good". The video is expected to make its world premiere imminently.

Chicago-area psychedelic black metal group NACHTMYSTIUM has posted a new song titled "Assassins" on its MySpace page. The track comes off the band's new full-length album, "Assassins: Black Meddle Part I", which will be released on June 10 via Century Media Records in North America and June 23 through Candlelight Records in Europe.
"Worldfall", the new mini-CD from NACHTMYSTIUM, will be released as a precursor to the band's upcoming full-length, and will only be available direct from Century Media as well as iTunes.
The "Worldfall" tracks were originally intended for a split with LEVIATHAN that has now been delayed due to legal issues with LEVIATHAN's record label. NACHTMYSTIUM will be recording new tracks later this year and releasing the split at a later date.
The "Assassins..." full-length was recorded in December at Sanford Parker's Volume Studios (RWAKE, MINSK, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, PELICAN) and showcases NACHTMYSTIUM's most prolific and expansive sounds to date. The record features Tony Laureano (ANGELCORPSE, NILE, DIMMU BORGIR) on drums, and spot appearances by members of PHARAOH and YAKUZA. More...
GENGHIS TRON was in a freak van accident yesterday and, although all passengers are OK, the band’s van and trailer are in need of serious repair forcing the band to cancel their shows in Butler, PA last night and Philadelphia, PA tonight.
Genghis Tron issued the following statement this morning regarding the accident: “"Deja vu. For the second time in Genghis Tron's career we got into a pretty harrowing car accident. Yesterday afternoon while driving on I-71 in Ohio, the rear right wheel of our van decided to jump ship. We spun out across three lanes of busy traffic and landed in a ditch in the median. Somehow we managed to avoid all other cars and luckily no one was injured, but our van and trailer have certainly seen better days.”
“We've set up a paypal donation button on our MySpace page to help us get back on the road in time for next week's tour with Converge. You can also send donations to email@example.com. Every little bit helps... thanks in advance and make sure your tires aren't dickwads like ours! “ More...
