TJ Morris of Watchers Entertainment, one of the organizers of the Death In The Forest Festival — set to take place May 20 in Middletown, New York — has issued the following update:

"Due to the inclement weather, death in the forest 2006 will be moved from the Orange County Fair grounds. YES, MOVED FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY FAIR GROUNDS. As we aware that many people will be in the area on May 19th for the 1349/ BELPHEGOR/ TYPHUS/ ENGORGE signing at rock fantasy, and have also made hotel arrangements for the nights of may 19th and 20th in the Middletown area, we are doing everything in our power to relocate to a venue within close proximity of the Orange County Fair Grounds. I realize a great deal of you are probably pissed, thinking to yourself 'WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!' Well, that’s exactly how we feel about this situation as well. However, there has been rain in this area for the last three days, and another five days of rain is forecasted. Even if it dried up by May 20th, the grounds at the OC Fair would not support the weight of our equipment. So, once again, we are going to have to move the fest. We are frantically looking for a venue that is A) Large enough to suppo rt 2/3 stages, B) open to the idea of a black metal / death metal festival, and C) available for the dates of May 19th (setup) May 20th (event) and May 21st (break-down). If anyone OWNS, OR KNOWS SOMEONE WHO OWNS, such a spot in the Middletown, NY area, or in close proximity, please feel free to contact us. We have tried every conceivable venue in the area, and are getting stonewalled.

HOWEVER!!! THE SHOW WILL GO ON. THIS I PROMISE TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU CRAZY FUCKERS. I GIVE MY WORD TO EVERY ONE OF YOU; THIS WILL BE THE GREATEST METAL FESTIVAL TO EVER BE CONCEIVED IN THIS NECK OF THE WOODS. For fuck's sake, we have IMMOLATION, 1349, VITAL REMAINS, and BELPHEGOR, all headlining, backed up by SKINLESS, IMPALED, TYPHUS, ENGORGE, NEPHILLIM, BLOODTHRONE, and a fucking army of other brutal fuckers. THIS EVENT WILL KICK ASS. So, take note, the venue is changing for DITF 2006. Keep your eyes on www.deathintheforest.com for more updates as the next few hours come to pass."
