The Santa Cruz, CA-based power trio, who won "Best Local Band 2008" in the Metro Santa Cruz Goldies Awards, takes the stage on Saturday, June 7th, opening for some of the biggest names in the metal music genre. The Sweden Rock Festival is held in Norjeboke, in the tiny village of Norje which is situated in Sölvesborg in the western part of southern Sweden.

Archer’s debut album "Doom$day Profit$" is a "genuine tour-de-force, rich with powerful songs imbued with that essential combination of brain-burrowing melodies, ripping riffs, pulsing basslines, tsunami drums and grab-by-the-throat vocals." The band cites influences that include Ozzy and Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica and other legendary names.

Earache Thrash Pack Kicks Rock Band Players' Asses

Earache Records has issued the following statement on their recently released "Earache Thrash Pack" for the game "Rock Band:"

"It was warned that the newly-released EARACHE Thrash Pack for ROCK BAND would be the hardest tracks that the game had to offer and that was no lie.

"The ROCK BAND rockers community (http://www.rockband.com/rockers_home)has been absolutely THRASHED and SHREDDED to the bone in their many attempts to play the AT THE GATES classic, "Blinded By Fear" and THE HAUNTED's "D.O.A." Judging by the comments on the official ROCK BAND forums, however, out of all of the songs in the pack, EVILE's "Thrasher" seems to have given players their greatest challenge yet. Here's what some of the most hardcore ROCK BAND players in the world have to say about it:

"This satisfies my extreme metal wants for a long, long, long time. That time will be spent putting ointment on my blistered fingers due to Thrasher, no doubt." - Chief Stubbs

"Got my butt kicked in solo 2 of Thrasher." - JoshuaNeff

"Thrasher: DEAR FREAKING LORD! This song is so frikkin insane it's not even funny...When I saw the first solo I nearly crapped my pants." - Xerosnake90

"Thrasher's quick changes between beats are seriously challenging" - Contrapulator

"If you're the type who says that talk is cheap, then let these killer videos of all 3 songs show you what's got the ROCK BAND community buzzing: More...

At The Gates Guitarist Speaks On Roots Of Reunion

Anthony Morgan at Lucem Fero caught up with AT THE GATES guitarist Anders Björler to discuss the band's reunion. The following is an excerpt from the interview, conducted in November 2007:

Q: Could you give us an introduction to the At The Gates reunion, and how that eventually materialised?

Anders: "If the reunion was ever to materialise, I felt that we would need to plan ahead. I got in touch with the other guys during May this year, and asked if they'd be interested in a possible reunion. They were, and we just took it from there."

Q: Personally, what were your own reasons for wanting to pursue a reunion?

Anders: "I just want closure. The split was bad in some respects, and we didn't talk to each other for years. I just want to go back, and make things right."

Q: You said that it feels like getting closure, so have you ever held any regrets over how At The Gates ended?

Anders: "I have no real regrets concerning the decision, although I have regrets in terms of the way it happened. I was fed up with the touring, and didn't want to record another album. Somehow, Slaughter Of The Soul felt like a good ending to our career."

Q: In your statement announcing the reunion, you said "it felt like the timing was right for once”. Were there times in the past when the possibility of reunion shows were discussed by the members? For how many years has the idea been discussed?

Anders: "I think we started discussing the possibility of reunion shows during 2002, but nothing ever happened then. Adrian was drumming for CRADLE OF FILTH at the time, whereas me and Jonas had commitments with The Haunted. Tomas had THE GREAT DECEIVER, LOCK UP, DISFEAR, SKITSYSTEM, etc... so it was very hard to arrange anything back then. As I said earlier, planning ahead is important. We let the guys in our other respective groups know what we're planning to do."

Q: How did everything fall into place for the reunion to be possible?

Anders: "Firstly, the reunion fits perfectly in line with the schedule we have for The Haunted. We will probably record our new album during April 2008, and that'll leave the summer relatively free. Me and Jonas didn't want the At The Gates reunion to affect The Haunted, so 2008 was an ideal time schedule the live shows. Adrian is no longer a member of Cradle of Filth, so he's not committed to extensive touring. All in all, 2008 turned out to be a great year."
