Due to financial circumstances, Full Blown Chaos has dropped off their scheduled European tour with Hatebreed and Unearth. Here's what the band had to say about the situation:
"Once again, we're here apologizing to our European fans. And, once again there's a disaster with getting overseas. It's completely out of our hands and it sucks. We wish there was a way to get over there, especially since we were announced to be on the tour. There's just no funding for us to get there. We're doing our best to make it up to guys. We're hoping to tour Europe early next year! Once again, sorry guys and girls. We love Europe and our European fans, we will be back!!!!"

Former Hatebreed guitarist Lou "Boulder" Richards reportedly passed away earlier this week. Specific details have yet to be disclosed. Richards appeared on the group's "Satisfaction Is The Death Of Desire" and "Perseverance" before leaving the band in May of 2002 (original news here).
Hatebreed has issued the following statement:
"As many of you may have heard, and we were sorry to learn, our former guitar player Lou 'Boulder' Richards passed away yesterday. It is very unfortunate that he could not see any other way to conquer his demons. We hope he has finally found some peace. Our hearts go out to Vera and his family and friends."
Underground Video Television (UVTV) was at the Monsters of Mayhem tour in Allentown PA at the Croc Rock on Friday Sep 8 with arrangements for filming live footage of Exodus, Napalm Death, and headliners Hatebreed. During the show Exodus bassist Jack Gibson told the UVTV crew stories of tour bus driving expertise in Europe and hoped his hair looked good in the footage. Rob Dukes, Exodus vocalist, asked if his stage dive into the mosh pit was captured on tape. You can read the full Monsters of Mayhem show report and review on the UVTV blogs. Exclusive live footage from this event will be available on the UVTV website in the future.

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.
HATEBREED's video for the song "Defeatist" has been posted online at this location. The clip was shot on July 31 in Naugatuck, Connecticut in an abandoned factory which was also used by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise for the end sequence of the film "War of the Worlds" and was helmed by acclaimed director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (TRIVIUM, MUDVAYNE, SHADOWS FALL, MADBALL).
As previously reported, a special "Headbanger's Ball" episode dedicated to HATEBREED will air this Saturday, September 2 on MTV2. Also scheduled to air immediately following "Headbanger's Ball" is a "Making of the Video" episode dedicated to HATEBREED's "Defeatist" clip.
HATEBREED's new album, "Supremacy", was released this past Tuesday (August 29) via Roadrunner Records. An e-card for the CD can be accessed by clicking here.
AOL Music has full CD streams of Queensryche's "Q2K" (Expanded and Remastered) as well as Hatebreed's Roadrunner Records debut "Supremeracy" this week:
Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta recently spoke to PLANET-LOUD.COM about the new album, Supremacy.

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|
Metalcore pioneers HATEBREED will be performing a special "free" record release show on August 30th at CBGB in New York City. In order to get your free ticket, you must pre-order their new album here.
Hatebreed has issued the following update: "As most of you know, we had to cancel our shows in Cleveland and Raleigh due to a family emergency. Chris Beattie's [bass] grandfather George had become ill and subsequently passed away yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, his family and those who were close to George. May he rest in peace. Our tour will resume tomorrow [Friday, August 11] in St. Pete, Florida @ The State Theater (one of our favorite places to play) but we will not be able to play the last date of Ozzfest [August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida] since we will be attending funeral services. Please understand our circumstances. Thanks."
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.

HATEBREED shot a video for the song "Defeatist" on Monday, July 31 in Naugatuck, Connecticut in an abandoned factory which was also used by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise for the end sequence of the film "War of the Worlds". The clip was helmed by acclaimed director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (TRIVIUM, MUDVAYNE, SHADOWS FALL, MADBALL), who stated before the shot, "What Spielberg and Cruise didn't get right, we will!!!"
Commented the band: "Our video shoot was incredible. Thanks so much to everyone who came out to show their support! It was 105 degrees, people waited for hours and there were a few mishaps but the finished product is going to look amazing!"
Check out pictures from the shoot at this location.
On Sunday, July 23, the annual metal-gods tour known as Ozzfest, minus Ozzy, of course, rolled through Indianapolis, and the event passed without much out of the ordinary. The day saw a couple of fights, a lot of marijuana, a whole lot of ignorant people who harassed event staff at every turn, and a lot of people waiting to see the last three bands of the night without any knowledge of who played the second and early main stages—a typical Ozzfest.

HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta recently spoke to Ray Hogan of NorwalkAdvocate.com about the group's participation in the 11th annual Ozzfest, which rolls into Hartford, CT Sunday. This year marks HATEBREED's fourth year on the Ozzfest but first on its main stage.
"We had doubts not knowing what there was going to be for a pit area. Playing to seats is a new element to us," Jasta said of appearing on the main stage. "We're playing to double or triple the amount of people on the other three Ozzfests we've done. It's more people that want to rock out and not be annihilated in the pit. Everybody is having a good time out there. We are really the only extreme band on the main stage."
Regarding "Supremacy", HATEBREED's fifth disc, which is due August 29 via Roadrunner Records, Jasta said, "This band and the message is an institution. It's like a restaurant you like. You don't want to show up and have the menu completely different. We've built this for 10 years, and while there are some new stylings and tempos, when you put it in you know right away that it's HATEBREED."
On running his own Stillborn Records out of West Haven and being a figurehead to the do-it-yourself underground hardcore and metal scenes:
"We just wanted to meld the scenes and have unity. Ten years later, it's a lot different. Ozzfest is a very eclectic crowd. Connecticut has really inspired us to tour out of the Northeast and look for bigger things, each time we come back it keeps us humble."
On being a band about unity and self-empowerment, despite its name:
"Some people have drawn the wrong conclusion. We try to tell people there's a deep message in a lot of our songs, an underlying message of hope or overcoming adversity. We're a band that represents life in general."
