Danish thrashers MNEMIC see their MySpace updated with the following:

Mnemic have been added to two dates on METALLICA's European summer tour: May 28th at Slaski Stadium in Chorzow, Poland and June 3rd at Slavia Stadium in Prague, Czech Republic.

Says guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie, "We are beyond thrilled and more than happy to be heading out with the mighty Metallica this summer! Again!

We are excitedly looking forward to this wonderful opportunity, that we have been given, and can't wait to blast some Mnemic waves for y'all. I can only say that we consider this event a true privilege specially to be invited by Lars and Metallica, and we can not be thankful enough!

On top of all of this, I will be celebrating my birthday on the 3rd of June, the same day we will be sharing the stage.. .I truly couldnt have asked for a better birthday present than this one!

From the lads and yours truly, a big thank you to everyone involved in making this happen.

See you out there for some metal, cervezas and a sea of meat!

As for the Danish tour dates, no, its not a mistake, we are actually playing 2 shows in one day - now you know."

Yeah well nowadays it's not a really good thing to be opening for Metallica because they stink so much that all you gear will smell of the new AXE brand called : SELLOUT !!

Mnemic are probably the most poor and pathetic performance I'd ever seen live, their music seemed to be Nickelback-ish...

For them to open for Metallica says it all, they're both in the pound seats, and sell out music sells...!

I didn't like the latest Mnemic album-PASSENGER. They were pretty good in the beginning,though, if you like Industrial metal. It is a shame because I like a lot of different European bands.
