Hate Eternal, currently finishing their 3rd album, the follow up to "King of All Kings," will be opening for Hatebreed on October 28th, 2004 at the State Theatre in St. Petersburg, Florida. Hatebreed is playing a special show in the Tampa area to make up for the missed Ozzfest show due to the hurricanes here over the last month.
As far as the new album's progress, Erik has this to say: "Everything is almost tracked and we'll begin mixing in November for a Spring 2005 release. The album has been the smoothest of my career and is pummeling! I believe it captures all the elements of the first 2 albums, but is also so much more diverse in every aspect. It really has captured so much of what we all are in this band individually and collectively. We are so very excited and look forward to getting on the road next year in support for our new album. See you soon!"
Shadows Fall will be performing on the special Halloween edition of MTV2's Headbangers Ball to be taped at the BloodRayne 2 Launch Party on October 21st at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. This party will be hosted by Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta and also feature lots of surprises including some very secret guests that we can't announce!
There are a limited number of tickets available for free with the purchase of a ticket to the November 10th Devastation Across the Nation date with Shadows Fall, Damageplan and The Haunted that is also at House of Blues in LA. As this is a private event there will only be a select number of tickets open to the public. Expect these to disappear very quickly.
We have an incredibly limited number of tickets available through Shadows Fall Online Ticketing at a cheaper service fee than other options. You can also get tickets through Ticketmaster.com or the House of Blues box office while supplies last. You MUST bring either the physical ticket itself or a printout of the confirmation email to the House of Blues box office before Oct. 21st to get your pass for the BloodRayne 2 Launch Party. This applies to fans who have already purchased tickets as well. If you buy your ticket through the Shadows Fall online ticketing store, your name will be at the door and you will not have to redeem your ticket at House of Blues.
The ONLY way to get tickets to this event is by purchasing a ticket to the Devastation Across the Nation show (with Shadows Fall, Damageplan and The Haunted) on November 10th at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. This is your chance to be on MTV with Shadows Fall. The actual program will air on Halloween night. Tickets are still available for this but they will not last much longer.
In other news, Shadows Fall drummer, Jason, just tied the knot this weekend.

I've finally got my photos from the second stage of Ozzfest on Sunday July 18 in Bristow, VA posted. You can check them out in the photo gallery.
On Sunday, July 18, 2004 I enjoyed one of the best Ozzfests I've witnessed at the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, Virginia, despite a day that started off pretty bad. To put it all in perspective, I'll start at the beginning. I awoke to prepare for the day and immediately noticed that my right eye which was slightly irritated the day before was swollen half shut. After 30 minutes or so of being awake, I was developing a serious headache from the pressure of my swollen eyelid being open. Although I had fully intended to arrive at Ozzfest by 9:30 and see every band perform, I quickly resigned to going in to the hospital to have my eye checked out. The decision was an easy one because the headache was already terrible and I could only imagine the situation worsening throughout the day as dust, rain, sweat, and/or sun screen got into my eyes.
After two hours in the hospital to get some antibiotic eye drops, I was on my way. One side effect of the eye infection was that I was forced to wear glasses instead of contacts, which totally sucks - it's kind of hard to headbang with glasses on.
Factoring in travel time, I arrived at Ozzfest just two hours into the show. The weather was overcast and comfortably cool 70's. They were calling for a 60% chance of rain, but the weather was holding, despite passing through some rain on the drive to Bristow. More...
The official website for Pigstock 10 has been updated, and is full of information regarding the 4-stage, multi-band festival that takes place on Friday, August 13 in Davenport, Iowa. Head to www.pigstock10.com to check it out.
Albany's Capital News 9 has posted a two-minute video report from this weekend's Aggressive Music Festival, which featured performances from a number of national heavy metal bands, including Slayer, Slipknot, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Superjoint Ritual, Shadows Fall, Hatebreed and Life Of Agony. Watch the video here.
Around 4,000 music fans from the Capital Region and as far away as California packed the Glens Falls Civic Center for the festival, which was organized in part by Hatebreed singer Jamey Jasta. Back in May, a group of local people went around getting residents in the Glens Falls area to sign petitions (watch video here) against the concert due to some of the groups' questionable lyrics. But organizers, bands and fans said there's nothing wrong with this type of music.
Promoter Ted Etoll said, "They took one little isolated lyrical content and made everybody here to look like demons, which they aren't."
Mark Wellington of Queensbury said, "You know a lot of people were shaky about having guys like us come up here and have a festival, but overall it's just fans coming to listen to good music."

So, after quite some time and many doubts I have finally decided to share my thoughts about this year's Ozzfest. Actually, it's my first time on this festival since I'm from Europe and I've only been living in U.S. for two years now. Please, do consider this as you read along :)
I got to the Tweeter Center around 10:15 in the morning. Being my first time there, I wasn't sure how the whole thing was gonna go. The first thing that looked very weird were all those people on the parking lot who had brought BBQs and coolers and were hanging out by their cars. Very American, I thought. More...

"The Power of I & I" is the first single off the group's new album, "The War Within", due on September 21 through Century Media Records.

"The War Within", the band's fourth full-length release, features 10 tracks of "sonic devastation" and is said to be the group's "most unrelenting, yet dynamic offering that further proves why they are the undisputed leaders of their genre."

03. Act of Contrition
04. What Drives The Weak
06. Inspiration On Demand

Shadows Fall 's "The Art of Balance" has sold 101,200 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

HATEBREED have pulled out of the first two dates of the "Headbanger's Ball Tour" — also featuring DAMAGEPLAN, DROWNING POOL and UNEARTH — following the death of their manager Steve Richards (as reported yesterday). HATEBREED's official message on the matter reads as follows:
"This past Sunday, March 21st, we all lost a very special person, a visionary and a true music guy, Steve Richards, our manager, the founder of No Name Worldwide. He was many things to many people, a soul mate, mentor, leader, confidante, brother, and son. His spirit will continue to inspire the ones he blessed with his amazing passion he had for living life.
"We would not be where we are today if it wasn't for Steve. He helped us when no one else would and we loved him like a brother. May he Rest In Peace.
"Due to this horrible loss, HATEBREED has postponed their appearance on the IMX Show and the first two shows of the 'Headbangers Ball Tour'. HATEBREED will now start the tour this Saturday March. 27th in Winston-Salem, NC."
NOTE: HATEBREED's cancellation will *NOT* affect DAMAGEPLAN, DROWNING POOL and UNEARTH's participation in the first two "Headbanger's Ball Tour" dates.
