God Forbid just wrapped up a highly successful European tour alongside Machine Head and Caliban and Doc Coyle (guitars, vocals) checks in with the following report:
We finally arrived home from our mammoth 10 week European tour with Machine Head and Caliban. This was our first time to most of these places and this tour took us from as far north as Finland, down to Portugal, an entire UK tour, and even as far east as Serbia, Croatia, and Bulgaria. It was exhausting yet exhilarating because of the massive, insane crowds we got to rock in front of every night! With the exception of Ozzfest, this was the biggest tour we've ever done. From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank Rob, Phil, Dave and Adam from MH for taking us out. Much respect to Caliban and both crews for a successful tour.
Since we left in early October a tyrant has been re-elected and a great legend has fallen. Sad times indeed. We were in Serbia when we heard the news of Dimebag Darrell's death. Being longtime Pantera fans, and having the opportunity to meet the man on several occasions, it has been a very emotional time for everyone in God Forbid. It's been emotional for the entire heavy music and hard rock scenes in general. Pantera was the first concert my brother and I ever went to, the first band T shirt I bought and part of the reason I play music. You don't want to believe it is real. All of us are hit really hard because it's the exact opposite of the way our scene is. The metal and hardcore scene is really close-knit and like a family. The bands are close with the fans and I know Pantera was always close with their fans and treated them like friends not just fans. You would never expect anything like this to happen in our scene. God Forbid sends our deepest sympathy to the Abbott family and anyone close to this great man. A lot of love for Dimebag! "We're sharing riffs man!"More...
The Boston-based quintet Diecast are set to embark on a headlining U.S. tour alongside The Hoods and Winter Solstice immediately following their stint on the Heavyweights of Hardcore tour. The trek kicks off on Jan. 20th and runs through Feb. 10th. The group's highly acclaimed new album, "Tearing Down Your Blue Skies," is now available. A new video for the track "Rise and Oppose" will be shot by Kevin Leonard (Himsa, Walls of Jericho) on Jan. 19th and look for it to makes it debut in late Feb.
Diecast just wrapped up a highly successful run on the Radiotakeover.com tour alongside E-Town Concrete, Devilinside and Twelve Tribes. Jeremy Wooden (bass) checks in with the follow tour wrap-up:
We just got back from the Radiotakeover tour with E-town Concrete, Twelve Tribes and almost Devilinside. It was amazing and we had a blast with all the bands. It started off slow with smaller shows, but all the kids who went out made us all feel like we were playing in front of thousands of fans. A lot of kids came up to us after the set saying that they were a bit skeptical about our singer change and new material (mostly due to internet gossip) but after seeing us live said we were way better than we've ever been. Stand out shows on the tour were definitely, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York (Albany and NYC) and Pennsylvania (Allentown and Philly).
Thanks to the promoters (minus 2 or 3) who treated us very well, fed us, drank with us, etc. We'd also like to thank everyone who came out to interview us on the road. Except for the two shit-bags who decided to piss all over the sofa and our singers bag (your lucky I'm a pacifist now), you were all great to us. We also got a Monster energy drink sponsorship on the road, so that kept us nice and perky for the long drives.
Well, we are home to spend time with family and enjoy the holidays and then it's back on the road in January with legends Hatebreed and Agnostic Front. I've also been informed that Tony and Mike from Devilinside will be getting something new together so be on the lookout, those guys are amazing musicians and great guys. Have a great holiday and we'll see you on the road soon.

On October 19th Stillborn Records recording artist Full Blown Chaos released “Waking The Demons”, and now take their legendary brutal live performances to the road on the “2004: The Heavyweights Of Hardcore Tour,” featuring Hatebreed, Terror, Full Blown Chaos & No Warning plus Sick Of It All, reports press release.
Songs of inner-strength backed with riffage that hug hairpin turns and a dynamite-triggering rhythm section. Full Blown Chaos is a roaring sonic blitzkrieg with more to offer than the tired tough guy mentality!
2004 finds the quartet dishing out their blend of bone cracking hardcore with puncturing metal on their first full-length album titled "Wake The Demons." The experience is a bona fide thrill ride of chest pounding yet gripping sing-along screams from front man and lyricist Ray Mazzola along with the persuasive guitar megalomania of Mike Facci coupled with grenade popping drums of brother Jeff Facci; and finally, the crushingly infernal mix on "Wake The Demons" is crowned by the determined and vivacious bass performance of Ed Conroy.

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...
