JAG PANZER and PAINMUSEUM have been confirmed for the Louder Harder Faster festival, set to take place June 3-5 at the Crocodile Rock Cafe in Allentown, PA. This will be a unique event for PAINMUSEUM: When drummer Bobby Jarzombek (ICED EARTH, HALFORD) was unable to cancel prior engagements for this particular performance, Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, ex-SLAYER, SYSTEMATIC, FORBIDDEN) was called upon to fill in for this one night only. Also performing with PAINMUSEUM will be Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X).
The highlight of the festival will be an extremely rare performance by the classic TESTAMENT lineup of Chuck Billy (vocals), Eric Peterson (guitar), Alex Skolnick (guitar), Greg Christian (bass) and Louie Clemente (drums). The weekend of metal mayhem will also include performances by the full original lineup of New York thrash titans NUCLEAR ASSAULT and SPEED\KILL/HATE, featuring members of OVERKILL.

MARTYR AD has broken up, according to a post on the official AGNOSTIC FRONT site. The band says MARTYR AD dropped off their tour with Agnostic Front and broke up due to "band indifferences." Local bands will be added to the remaining AGNOSTIC FRONT dates to make up for MARTYR AD's cancelation of the tour.
In other news, AGNOSTIC FRONT has issued the following tour report:
"Two days ago on Wednesday, we headed out on the road again. the first show was a makeup show with MADBALL, MURDERERS ROW, and AFTER THE FALL in albany. We had a lot of friends come out to support us. Seeing so many familiar faces was a good way to start everything off. Both opening bands were really good, and MADBALL played great as usual. During our set, my brother Freddy came up to sing "so pure to me" with me. Yesterday was the first show of the actual tour in Lancaster, PA. Needless to say, everything got off to a chaotic start. We received news that our main support band for the tour, MARTYR AD, just broke up. Then on the way to the show we had van problems and [had to] stop to get it fixed [which] making us very late. We got to the venue only to hear that DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR's van had broken down and that they probably couldn't make it. But FIVE ACROSS THE EYES and ALL SHALL PERISH played and both had really good sets. The crowd was great for us and despite all the complications, it turned out to be a really great show."

AGNOSTIC FRONT will be the featured musical guests on Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage" on February 21 at 9:00 p.m. (the show will repeat at midnight).
The band will be performing music from their latest release, "Another Voice", which hit streets on January 25.
Jesse James hand-picked AGNOSTIC FRONT to perform live while an all-star team of builders turn a 1929 Ford Model-A into the most insane hot-rod to see the light of day. To ensure this street-rod has East Coast flare, the work takes place in the Big Apple, AGNOSTIC FRONT's stomping ground.
Visit the "Monster Garage" video gallery to see a three-minute clip of AGNOSTIC FRONT footage taken from the shoot.
AGNOSTIC FRONT are currently headed to Europe but will tour the States in the spring on their own headlining tour.
I had the opportunity to attend the Stillborn Fest 2005 in Philadelphia, Pa at the Electric Factory on December 26th. I must say for being as pissed off as I was that I couldn't move anywhere without a pit of hardcore dancers starting right next to me, that it was still a good concert. All of the few bands I had the chance to see were really good live and they were enjoyable. This is how the night shaped up: More...
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.

Diecast w/ Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Love Is Red and The Autumn Offering: More...
Airing this Saturday, November 27th at 10:00 P.M. Eastern / 7:00 P.M. Pacific, AGNOSTIC FRONT will host and premiere the video for their latest single “Peace” off the 2005 release "Another Voice".
Since 1983, AGNOSTIC FRONT, one of the most venerable and notorious outcasts of the hardcore movement, helped get messages across to the populace through their socially driven music. As one of the original hardcore bands that lived and breathed the problems that controlled their everyday New York City lifestyle, "Another Voice", out on January 25th, 2005, gives power and strength to these ignored voices. Their most intense album yet, "Another Voice", offers a violent attack on today’s civility, exposing some of society’s worst problems with a genuine street-bred angst and fire that only few bands possess.
The following message was posted on HATEBREED's official website:
"Unfortunately, Crowbar will not be doing the states with HATEBREED in January after all. They will however be joining HATEBREED in the UK in March 2005. So be on the look out for that.
Joining the "Heavyweights Of Hardcore 2" Tour in January will now be AGNOSTIC FRONT, DIECAST, LOVE IS RED and THE AUTUMN OFFERING. The first confirmed dates have just been put up on the message board. Go peep it. More...
New York hardcore legends Agnostic Front have set a January 25, 2005 North American release date through Nuclear Blast Records for their new album, "Another Voice".
"Another Voice" was produced by Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall) and Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and is said to be the group's "meanest" and "nastiest" offering to date. The enhanced CD will include a "ripping" band performance and a guest appearance by Jasta, captured by acclaimed director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (Fear Factory, Hatebreed, God Forbid, Shadows Fall, Candiria) Other special guest vocal appearances on "Another Voice" include Scott Vogel (Terror) and Karl Buechner (Earth Crisis, Freya).
