"We are beyond stoked, beyond surprised, and MORE than happy to be a part of the METALLICA gig in Aarhus, Denmark!! It's definitely a dream come true for all of us," writes in MNEMIC guitarist Mircea. "It simply CAN NOT get any bigger for us to say the words, 'Yeah, we've opened up for Metallica!' It's definitely a nice tap on the shoulder for all the hard work and hard moments MNEMIC have gone through. We would especially like to thank Lars and the mighty Metallica for choosing MNEMIC for this fine day of pure Danish Metal. We will of course make this day extra special, extra heavy, and extra metal!"

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich issued an Easter greeting in Danish (translated text follows) announcing that Metallica had "decided to make our Aarhus day to be of a Danish enterprise... drumroll please... We have actually asked the awesome Danish bands Volbeat and MNEMIC to be a part of the event on the 13th of July, and they both freakin' said, 'Yes please!' so, game on and all the good stuff! It's going to be a pure Danish enterprise. Well, yeah, fuck it, 'tallica is only one-fourth Danish, but let us celebrate our Danish-ness, where and whenever we can, especially when we aren't home that much. With other words, here is the short version: I am happy to be able to announce that Volbeat and MNEMIC will make the Metallica show in Aarhus the 13th of July as Danish as possible."

MNEMIC recently completed a European tour with the Deftones in support of their latest album, Passenger, which was praised by Outburn Magazine for its "energetic execution, dazzling chops, polyrhythmic pummeling, and soaring melodic anthems."

Produced by Fear Factory's Christian Olde Wolbers at Track Record Studios (Kiss, Megadeth, Aerosmith) in Los Angeles, Passenger features artwork by Asterik Studios (Anthrax, Unearth) plus guest vocal appearances by Jeff Walker (Carcass, Brujeria) and Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Brujeria). MNEMIC also completed a video for "Meaningless" with Revolver Film director Patric Ullaeus, which has aired on MTV2's Headbangers Ball and can be viewed here.

3. Limp Bizkit rulz: the kreatorz of thrash metal!!!! writes:

You'll watch MTV if you know what is good for you. "I am a smart person... and you know it. Don't deny it. I know more than all of you. I watch MTV, which proves it."

If you have read my name, it sayz that Limp Bzkit are the kreatorz of thrash metal.... And that's a fact! Thoze pozerz like old Metallica, Pantera, and Slayer were nu-metal you idiotz. Thrash metal didn't come around until KoRn and Limp Bizkit came around and came up with the great of idea and actually including SOLOZ in their songz. Thrashing guitar soloz that show pozerz like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix and "Dimebag" Darrel how to play a guitar solo.

Fred Durst is a musical genius- that showed on their debut. It showed he was a tortured artist whoze genius could only be understood by other tortured artists, like me, who watch MTV and TRL.

Limp Bizkit will go down as the greatest heavy metal band of all time.

PS: If you want REAL Metallica, try a blank cd.

dont sayz sh** about limp bizkit or i will woop your ass!!!
