Thoten's Barzo Is Getting Around

The drummer from Thoten, Marcos Barzo, who was stabbed twice in a robbery in his own home more than a month ago has made a fantastic recovery and is already back to physical and musical activities. Marcos started exercising at the gym with stretching classes and light walking. Barzo began to give drumming class and to rehearse [moderately] the play list of the "Beyond Tour". The drummer may return to Thoten shows in the mid of April, probably in Rio de Janeiro.

Currently, Marcos Barzo will be replaced by the drummer Eduardo Garcia, from São Paulo, during the concerts in Peru..

Site Update

DNS Propagated

It seems that the DNS change for the new host has propogated everywhere by now. This just means that metalunderground.com is automatically resolving to the new server. I have not yet turned on my advertising on the new host and can see that I've only had one impression (on the old hosted site) since yesterday... I'll be banging out the remaining bugs since the switch today, so if you continue to find any more bugs, email me at deathbringer@metalunderground.com. Thanks for your patience and support!
