A Decade Of Metal In Review

On the 31 Dec 1999, no planes came crashing out of the sky, nuclear bombs went off or microwave ovens tried to eat anyone. However, times were about to change and in the metal scene change was already well underway. Let us take a stroll through the decade in metal that was.

Many of the 90s big names like Emperor and Pantera prepared to give their last venomous scream dying off in the wake of ever diminishing interest in the metal scene that had plagued the 90s. In the year 2000 a band named “Limp Bizkit” came out with an album called "Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavoured Water" and in a storm nu-metal took over the public perception of heavy music, changing the face of metal irreparably. Although nu-metal had already been pioneered by Korn, bands like Deftones, Disturbed, Mudvayne and Linkin Park all had breakout releases in 2000. More...

Machine Head Pulls Out Of Sonisphere U.K.

California based metal outfit Machine Head has announced that due to an arguement with the events organizers over their billing, they will not be performing at Sonisphere U.K. on August 2nd. A message from the band reads as follows:

"It is with the utmost disappointment that we must announce that Machine Head will not be playing the Sonisphere date at Knebworth in the UK on August 2nd.

"In a turn of events that has left us absolutely baffled, the promoter of the UK Sonisphere festival recently placed, unbeknownst to us, LIMP BIZKIT in our 3rd slot on the festival. Seeing as the running order was a significant part of the negotiation and agreement between us and the promoter, and the fact that we had been advertised in that slot since the festival's announcement, you can imagine our surprise when we were "told" that we would now be playing in the 4th slot, under Limp Bizkit, and bizarrely, it was actually expected that we would quietly move down the bill without issue. We will not.

"Machine Head turned down the U.K.'s Download Festival, a festival we are very fond of - which incidentally, had us above Limp Bizkit - to commit to the Knebworth festival, as we felt a closer kinship to the bands performing this year. In an effort to make this situation in Knebworth work, we have spent more than a week striving to resolve this issue in a proper manner. Unfortunately, that did not happen. More...

Limp Bizkit Comments On UFC Show Cancellation

Limp Bizkit has responded to the cancellation of their UFC expo appearance. In a statement, the band says that they didn’t want to cancel the performance, and that out of respect to fans that bought tickets to see the band in Sin City, they’ll perform that night at a not-yet-determined location. It will be Limp Bizkit’s only stateside show until they finish prepping their new album in the fall.

"Limp Bizkit did NOT, in any way, cancel the UFC 100 concert in Las Vegas. Truth is UFC and Interscope Records could not come to an agreement on certain DVD rights. With all respect to Mandalay Bay, the UFC were also unhappy with Limp Bizkit decision of wanting to switch the performance from the Beach at Mandalay Bay with its inappropriate layout for a heavy rock concert with Limp Bizkit, basically a stage in front of a pool, to a more standard concert venue also located at the Mandalay Bay, which was the House Of Blues. The UFC expressed they wanted a ‘party vibe’ for this event and would not settle for any venue besides the Beach for this and other reasons."
