North Carolina metalcore band Between the Buried and Me have entered writing mode and are hard at work on the follow-up to 2006's The Anatomy Of, claiming in an online post that "things are coming along very well." The band plans to begin recording in May with producer Jamie King (Human Abstract, Far-Less). In the meantime, you can catch the band in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, March 30; Harrisonburg, Virginia, March 31; and Greensboro, North Carolina, April 1.
Fear Before The March Of Flames singer David Marion was injured during the group's San Diego show last Friday. Bandmate Adam Fisher has issued the following account of Marion's injury:
"During our second song david was struck in the face with mike's bass mid swing. Although that seems like something that is quite normal and not too rare the results were actually quite catastrophic. David was knocked out for longer than previous times this has happened. When he awoke he was spitting blood out in large amounts. We cleaned him up only to find that a hole had been ripped in his cheek. It basically looks as though he was pierced with a serrated knitting needle. In 100% honesty it was a pretty brutal sight. Somehow he managed to get up and finish the set but by the end the whole right side of his face was swolen to the point where he could barely open his right eye. He was taken to the hospital immediately. He was treated and received a catscan and was prescribed some pretty heavy antibiotics and heavy painkillers. It turns out because of the hole, air had gotten into his skin and puffed him out all the way from his collarbone up to above his eye socket. It's early now and david has just woken up but his exact quote was "I feel like 200 pounds of bird shit." It hurts for him to swallow and needless to say hes pretty bummed out. He is unsure of whether he will be able to play tonight. We as a band hate cancelling shows more than anything and david is the last to stand down because of pain, but if it hurts him bad enough to where he doesn't think he can do it his safety comes first. We'll try and keep you updated and we apologize in advance if we cannot play tonight. Again, we will only not play if it is 100% detrimental to david's health. Remember, it is a hole in his face that you could fit a small rodent through. It's not a scratch. Thank you for understanding and enjoy the rest of the bands!"
The band will reportedly continue on The Radio Rebellion Tour with Norma Jean and Between The Buried and Me, as planned. However, there will be vocal assistance from friends and fans for the next few weeks of the tour.
The first-ever Radio Rebellion Tour 2006 presented by Hurley, Smartpunk.com, Nike 6.0, Fuel TV, and Hot Topic is off with a bang as three of the first four shows (Nashville, Detroit and Toronto) have sold out, with a third (Chicago) nearly selling out.
"We are four shows deep into the Radio Rebellion Tour and we are really stoked about how it's going so far," explains Cory Brandan lead singer of NORMA JEAN. "The shows have been amazing, way beyond our expectations. All the bands have tons of energy and it is definitely bleeding into the crowd. It seems like everyone is having fun and we can't ask for more than that...it's why we do what we do. Seeing the whole tour production come together is really satisfying as well. This is definitely blown way out, over the top. We are doing more on stage than ever--we figure if people are gonna pay to see us play our songs on stage, then we might as well make it fun for them."
The 45-city Radio Rebellion Tour just launched October 6th in Nashville, TN and will wrap-up December 2nd in Atlanta, GA. Headlined by NORMA JEAN, this year's trek also includes BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, FEAR BEFORE THE MARCH OF FLAMES, MISERY SIGNALS and revolving openers THE FULLY DOWN (October 6-November 2) and BLESS THE FALL (November 2-December 2).
The details have been revealed for the bonus content included upon the upcoming reissue of Between The Buried And Me's "The Silent Circus". In addition to the albums original track listing, the effort will feature a bonus DVD that runs as follows:
"Lost Perfection a) Coulrophobia" (Live)
"Lost Perfection Anablephobia" (Live)
"All Bodies" (Live)
"Metal Injection Interview"
"Mordecai" (Music Video)
"Bonus Music Videos"
The outing will make its way to stores on October 03rd via Victory.
Im aware of the fact that its a little late, and pushed closely together with TWIM for 9-8-06 but nonetheless I would hate to see you guys miss out on a week of news. So without further ado the records chart courtesy of CMJ :
|3||1||SYL||The New Black||4||1|
|4||4||All That Remains||The Fall of Ideals||4||2|
|5||6||The Human Abstract||Nocturne||3||5|
|6||-||Bury Your Dead||Beauty & The Breakdown||2||6|
|8||5||Unearth||III: The Eyes Of Fire||3||5|
|10||7||Shadows Fall||Fallout From The War||4||1|
Hatebreed becomes our third #1 ever, beyond Shadows Fall and SYL. It is amazing for them as a band to completly jump Slayer. All That Remains maybe just hitting stride in their young career, the success of this album and the sales and touring they are doing are pushing them over the top of their genre. Bury Your Dead returns to the chart with strong sales following a bouncey chart release. And the boys from Shadows Fall look like their run of 4 weeks in the chart might end as they slip to the #10 slot.
Onto the singles, courtesy of MusicMatch:
|2||1||Unearth||The Glorious Nightmare||3||1|
|4||3||The Human Abstract||Crossing the Rubicon||2||2|
|5||4||Mastodon||The Wolf Is Loose||2||4|
|6||9||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||4||1|
|8||6||Lamb of God||Redneck||4||2|
|9||7||All That Remains||This Calling||2||7|
Not much change to the charts other then that of Stone Sour resurging to the #1 slot after never reaching it within the first four weeks. Between The Buried and Me makes a debut with Malpractice and the bottom of the chart holds strong with Slayer staying in the #10 slot. All four #1's in the charts 4 weeks remain, including the only 2 songs to be on all 4 weeks.
A third week, and to my surprise Slayer isn't number 1. Strapping Young Lad keeps the #1 spot for the second straight week. Meanwhile Slayer is at their heels and I would bet good money they takeover the top spot next week. Hatebreed's new album Supremecy could be the only thing that comes inbetween all of that but I highly doubt it. All That Remains holds strong as one of 4 bands that have stayed in the top 10 since TWIM was brought back. The second biggest highlight of the chart is the fact that All Shall Perish has broken thru and taken a spot inside the top 10. I've been a fan of these boys for a while and its amazing to see their name share spots with the likes of Shadows Fall and Unearth. And now for the chart courtesy of CMJ :
|1||1||Strapping Young Lad||The New Black||3||1|
|4||2||All That Remains||The Fall of Ideals||3||2|
|5||7||Unearth||III: The Eyes of Fire||2||5|
|7||3||Shadows Fall||Fallout From the War||3||1|
|9||4||Between the Buried and Me||The Anatomy Of||3||4|
|10||*||All Shall Perish||The Price Of Exsistance||1||10|
And now for the tunes, with a drastic change in this weeks chart. Unearth jumps from seven to first, while Slayer's Cult drops from first to tenth. Only six songs stayed on the chart, while we had four really strong debuts from great bands. Hatebreed, Mastodon and the new ATR single. Not to mention the ever-growing popularity of Human Abstract debuts. The singles chart is always shaky as the seeming flavor of the week is always ahead here, and now for the music, courtesy of MusicMatch:
|1||7||Unearth||The Glorious Nightmare||2||1|
|2||*||The Human Abstract||Crossing The Rubicon||1||2|
|4||*||Mastodon||The Wolf Is Loose||1||4|
|6||2||Lamb of God||Redneck||3||2|
|7||*||All That Remains||This Calling||1||7|
|8||10||Strapping Young Lad||You Suck||2||8|
|9||3||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||3||1|
A new top album ? Its true, this week Strapping Young Lad takes over the top spot from Shadows Fall. Both of these bands are very deserving, but we crown our second #1 in as many weeks. Last weeks top 7 managed to stay on the chart, but jump around a little bit. While we have 3 brand new albums debuting this week, with one going as high as #6 in Voivod's Katorz. This is quite possibly the best album these guys have released and they are finally getting the notority they deserve. Not far behind them in the new releases is Unearths' III: The Eyes Of Fire, which is amazing considering it hasnt been released in alot of areas yet but the pre-orders are astounding. I see a #1 in the future for these guys, but who can knock off the consistancy SYL is showing. All That Remains also leapfrogged The Shads into the #2 slot and the big jumper was Between The Buried And Me gaining three slots, which is hard to do considering the company they are in. Meanwhile, Cellador dropped from 8th to 11th. Acacia Strain from 9th to 14th and BYD to 12th. New albums already making a storm up the charts are Slayers "Christ Illusion" with pre-ordering alone landing it inside the top 20. Hatebreed's Supremecy is also showing strong and will reach the top 10 next week. Also in responding to the comments I am considering making this, and the singles list a top 15. If you think its a good idea please respond so, or if thats too much tell me to keep it at 10. \m/.
|1||2||SYL||The New Black||2||1|
|2||3||All That Remains||The Fall of Ideas||2||2|
|3||1||Shadows Fall||Fallout From The War||2||1|
|4||7||BTBAM||The Anatomy Of||2||4|
|7||-||Unearth||III: The Eyes of Fire||1||7|
|8||6||Stone Sour||Come What(ever) May||2||6|
Now for the singles, with a very familiar band to anyone who visits this site, taking over as #1. Lamb of God also stays strong moving up 1 to #2. Shadows Fall and Stone Sour round out the top 4 with a big jumper for the week Celtic Frost's Ground moving up to number 5. Threat Signal holds strong and then we get to three really strong debuts by 3 really strong bands. SYL's new ozzfest anthem boasts the #9 spot as a highlight of the new songs. Roudning out the top 10 is BLS with Concrete Jungle.
|2||3||Lamb of God||Redneck||2||2|
|3||1||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||2||1|
|6||7||Threat Signal||Rational Eyes||2||6|
|7||*||Unearth||The Glorious Nightmare||1||7|
|8||*||Terror||Strike You Down||1||8|
|9||*||Strapping Young Lad||You Suck||1||9|
|10||9||Black Label Society||Concrete Jungle||2||9|

Welcome to the return of This Week In Metal, a column I used to do before I was forced to take a hiatus from metalunderground.com. In this weekly column, we will update the top 10 selling albums in the metal industry (courtesy of CMJ) and the top 10 radio singles (pulled from Music Match). They use a number of sources for the list, including all satellite radio. While you may find a few bands that are too soft for the list, I assure you there will be more then enough surprises. Feel free to comment on the list and who you think is over/under-rated, what bands you expected to see and which ones you didn't. Again this column will run weekly, so be sure to check for it every Thursday in the columns area of MetalUnderground.com.
Now for the music, we will start each week with the albums. It's a good mix of what bands are bursting the underground, and some bands that have been killing for quite a while now.
|1||Shadows Fall||Fallout From The War||1||1|
|2||SYL||The New Black||1||2|
|3||All That Remains||The Fall Of Ideas||1||3|
|6||Stone Sour||Come What(ever) May||1||6|
|7||BTBAM||The Anatomy Of||1||7|
|9||The Acacia Strain||Dead Walk||1||9|
|10||Bury Your Dead||Beauty And The Breakdown||1||10|
Now for the tunes. These singles are a real who's who amongst metal right now. I find the list to be powerful and only really have one flaw. Keep in mind some songs have been out longer then others and have picked up a good fanbase on the radio, other songs have just come out and are sure to see their time at the top.
|1||Shadows Fall||Will To Rebuild||1||1|
|3||Lamb of God||Redneck||1||3|
|5||All That Remains||This Calling||1||5|
|7||Threat Signal||Rational Eyes||1||7|
|9||Black Label Society||Concrete Jungle||1||9|
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. More...
My Son My Executioner recently announced several line-up changes. Vocalist Zach Updegrove, guitarist Tommy Gates, and drummer David Bruner have amicably exited the band to "pursue other things." The group has subsequently added former guitarist Bobby Reynolds to the fold in addition to drummer Jason Roe (ex-Evelynn, Between the Buried and Me). The band is currently seeking an additional guitarist. Interested candidates should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first-ever RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 Presented by Hurley, Smartpunk.com, Nike 6.0, Fuel TV and Hot Topic is set to kick off October 6 in Nashville.
Showcasing cutting-edge artists who’ve built a massive grassroots fanbase without the help of commercial radio, RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 signifies the shift in how today’s youth discovers and identifies new music and lifestyle trends through the media and the Internet. The inaugural eight-week trek will visit 45 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada between October 6 and December 2. Stay tuned for the fall 2006 itinerary to be announced soon.
Tickets will first be available via the tour’s Internet pre-sale beginning nationwide on August 15 at 9:00AM PST via www.musictoday.com. In addition, the RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 CD sampler will be distributed at Hot Topic stores nationwide as well as on the remaining Vans Warped Tour ’06 dates.
“The idea behind Radio Rebellion is simple. We created a tour that showcases artists who’ve achieved some solid commercial success without the traditional drivers of commercial radio,” says Graham Day, founder of Smartpunk.com and tour partner/sponsor. “Some of the Radio Rebellion artists have now sold a few hundred thousand records without having a single spin on commercial radio. We’ve witnessed first-hand the power of this new breed of artist as well as their tight connection with their very active fan-base and now we’re offering these bands that fans want to see in an intimate and ideal environment.”
NORMA JEAN will headline the tour, which also includes BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, FEAR BEFORE THE MARCH OF FLAMES, MISERY SIGNALS and revolving openers THE FULLY DOWN and THE CONFESSION.
“The Radio Rebellion Tour is representing a small portion of bands who are doing something different in the music industry as a whole without having a lot or any radio play at all,” says NORMA JEAN lead vocalist Cory Brandon. “The truth is, I think radio should conform to what bands like us are doing, instead of us conforming to what they’re currently playing just to get on the radio. It doesn't and shouldn't work like that in music. We’re making headway without their support and we’re not at all against the idea of heavier bands having radio play, but this doesn’t and won't change what we are doing artistically whatsoever
Lacuna Coil have lined up seven off-date Ozzfest gigs just as "Enjoy the Silence," the second single from their latest offering, Karmacode, is set to impact commercial-rock radio. The Coil will perform with Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu in Englewood, Colorado (July 5); Rob Zombie and Anthrax in Oklahoma City (July 12); DragonForce and Between the Buried and Me in Minneapolis (July 14); Atreyu in Grand Rapids, Michigan, (July 20); Avenged and Bleeding Through in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, (August 8); Atreyu in Nashville (August 10); and DragonForce and Between the Buried and Me in Atlanta (August 11).
In related news, Between the Buried and Me and DragonForce are teaming for more off-dates: June 30 (Eugene, Oregon); July 5 (Colorado Springs, Colorado); July 12 (Fort Worth, Texas); July 13 (Columbia, Missouri, with the Red Chord and A Life Once Lost); July 17 (Traverse City, Michigan); July 24 (Louisville, Kentucky, with Bleeding Through); July 31 (Poughkeepsie, New York); August 2 (Burlington, Vermont); August 12 (Tallahassee, Florida); August 14 (Lake Buena Vista, Florida); August 15 (St. Petersburg, Florida); August 17 (New Orleans); and August 18 (Houston).
Chiodos have dropped off the remainder of their current tour with Between The Buried And Me, August Burns Red, etc. as a result of some health issues with singer Craig Owens. States the band: "Craig woke up this morning with a severe shortness of breathe, and needs to get back home to rest up. As many of you know, Craig has suffered from a collapsed lung in the past. Due to the symptoms coming back, we have decided to pull out of our direct supporting slot on our current tour. Craig and the rest of us will be resting up to get ready for our upcoming tour with It Dies Today and Haste The Day. we are terribly sorry, and would like to apologize to all of our fans in Canada, Boston, and Pittsburgh that planned on attending these shows. we hope that you understand that we love you but a band members health comes first."
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.
Here's a recap of the complete official Ozzfest 2006 lineup and tour dates: More...
In case you missed the quiet announcement (like we did), California metallers Bad Acid Trip have been added to the second stage for this summer's Ozzfest. The band, which has toured with System of a Down, released their debut, Lynch the Weirdo, on System frontman Serj Tankian's Serjical Strike label in 2004. The album was produced by System guitarist Daron Malakian. This year's Ozzfest begins June 29 in Auburn, Washington, and will run through August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
To recap, the Ozzfest 2006 tour dates and lineup are as follows: More...
