Holy Moses Added To The Barge To Hell

The organizers of the Barge to Hell have issued the following announcement about confirming Holy Moses as the latest act to play the cruise:

"Who better to lead them on their journey to the undead than the mighty Holy Moses celebrating their 30th anniversary? Not once, because as you know, they do everything twice. You heard right, twice! Here is how it goes: On December 3rd, 40 of the most extreme Metal Bands and 2,000 headbangers from around the world will go to the Caribbean to take over a luxury cruise ship for a 5 day and 4 night trip to the undead! For the entire trip it's like everyone has a backstage pass and you can mingle side-by-side with the Artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. See each of the 40 bands play two live shows on two different days. That's 80 shows with unrestricted festival access to the three stages, each with it's own unique atmosphere:

"The luxurious 'A Chorus Line' theater where they spare no expense to have the benches removed on the floor. Because at a Metal show, who actually wants assigned seating in front of the stage?

"The cozy 'Spectrum' that gives you the real club feeling.

"And their jewel: The open air stage on the pool deck. The biggest festival stage to sail the Oceans.

"You can also get all your memorabilia signed at the Meet & Greet sessions. Be part of their infamous Metal Karaoke and many other special activities with the Artists. And last, but not least: Don't forget that they have bars on board that never close! What are you waiting for? You might even need a vacation from this vacation when all is said and done."

Tomas Lindberg Pens Forward To "Metalion" Book

Legendary Swedish death metal vocalist Tomas "Goatspell" Lindberg (AT THE GATES, GROTESQUE, DISFEAR) has contributed a foreword to the upcoming 744-page hardcover book "METALION: The Slayer Mag Diaries," by Jon Kristiansen. Lindberg's connection to Norway's Slayer Mag dates to the 1980s, when he and Kristiansen were part of a core group of Swedish and Norwegian headbangers during the wild early years of the Scandinavian extreme metal scene.

"Metalion and his Slayer Mag are responsible for me (and a lot of other Swedes) getting into the death metal underground," begins Lindberg. "I clearly remember how proud I was when Grotesque got a mention in the classic mag-this meant more to me than anything else at the time!"

Part anthology, part memoir, and years in the making, "METALION" includes over 600 reproduction pages from every issue of Slayer mag, spanning from the early 1980s through 2010. In addition, author Jon Kristiansen recounts his life's story, from alienated outsider to central figure in Norwegian black metal to world-weary metal survivor. The book also features over 100 rare photographs, including two color sections and a portrait gallery of photographs taken by Kristiansen himself.

"The greatest heavy metal story ever told" will be available June 6, 2011, wherever books are sold, and is available for preorder now with two bonus limited patches from Bazillion Points Books, "America's smallest but heaviest book publisher."

Triptykon To Play Party.San Festival

The organizers of the Party.San 2011 festival have issued the following announcement about more bands appearing on the bill:

"Raised from the ashes of Hellhammer and Celtic Frost by Tom Gabriel Fischer himself, PARTY.SAN 2011 is proud and honored to announce the addition of Triptykon to its expanding bill of bands. Hell literally broke loose with the release of the band's Eparistera Daimone debut. Pitch black and truly evil music for devoted fans of extreme metal.

"Gorguts from Canada recently joined the PARTY.SAN bill. A death metal dinosaur of sorts, the band formed in 1989 and, having survived a host of trends, tragedies and breakups, are still going strong today. Gorguts will present to you a technical and extremely furious death metal show you will never forget.

"Enslaved are easily among Norway’s finest bands. The progressive black/Viking metal ensemble has remained dark and innovative for their two-decade-long existence and will bring their monolithic blackness to the PARTY.SAN 2011 stage." More...

At The Gates To Play Bloodstock Open Air

At The Gates has been confirmed to perform at the 2011 edition of the Bloodstock Open Air Festival. "We had such a blast during the 2008 reunion that we decided to do some more shows." states drummer Adrian Erlandsson. He continues, "We had an amazing gig at Bloodstock in 2008 and are really looking forward to playing there again." The Bloodstock Open Air organizers commented:

"One of the most influential metal bands of the last 20 years, At The Gates made a permanent mark after 1995’s 'Slaughter Of The Soul' album captured the imaginations of metal heads the world over. Taking the aggression of death metal and lacing it heavily with melody, the album was released to huge critical acclaim - including a Swedish Grammy nomination - and At The Gates looked set to take the world by storm. However disbanding in 1996 meant the next chapter was never written. The 12 years that passed left hundreds of thousands of fans hoping that one day they would get to see their heroes again.

"Their wish came true and At The Gates reunion was one of the summer festival highlights across Europe in 2008. Now the band return for an exclusive appearance, and Bloodstock is honoured to welcome them back for what is bound to be an unforgettable set at Catton Hall."
