Rammstein will be playing a series of European festivals this summer. So far these include Pink Pop in Holland on May 20, Festimad in Madrid (24), Gods Of Metal in Milan (June 8) and Roskilde in Denmark (27), plus dates in Sweden, Finland and Switzerland.
Metallica have given film makers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky unprecedented access while they put together their new album. The pair made the documentary ‘Paradise Lost: The Child Murders At Robin Hood’ about three West Memphis teenagers wrongfully accused of murder. They got permission from Metallica to use some of their music in that film for nothing. So far, it’s not known what will be done with all this footage.
Marilyn Manson has finished 11 songs for the new, as yet untitled album. The record is expected to be released in the summer, and is being co-produced by Manson with Tim Skold, formerly of Shotgun Messiah.
Tool will spend April playing shows in Japan, Australia and New Zealand. They will then head to Europe to appear on the Ozzfest bill. They’ll be supported by Melvins in Australia and New Zealand.
American death metallers Disgorge, not to be confused with Mexico's Disgorge, have recorded the follow-up to She Lay Gutted entitled Consume the Forsaken.
However, shortly after recording Consume the Forsaken, Disgorge parted ways with vocalist A.J. Magana due to "personal conflicts." Stepping in for Magana is Brodequin frontman Jamie Bailey, who will be helping the band out on their upcoming Blood Letting North America tour with Disavowed, Severe Torture and Deeds Of Flesh. Consume the Forsaken should land sometime in late spring on Unique Leader Records.
German gothic black metallers Mystic Circle will enter Commusication Studio with producer Gerhard Magin in Frankenthal, Germany to record the follow-up to last year's The Great Beast.
Mystic Circle's new album, entitled Damien, follows the idea of Richard Donner's 1976 supernatural thriller The Omen. Musically, the band promises to have created their most "brutal" outing yet and is expected to be a vast improvement in all departments. The cover art for Damien will be handled by illustrator J.P. Fournier. Look for Mystic Circle's Damien out this summer on Massacre Records.
Fear Factory have now completed writing the music for around 5 songs for their new album, which they plan to begin recording sometime this summer. In other news, the band have also announced that their music will be featured
in an upcoming new "Terminator" video game, due out in August. At present, a late 2002 / early 2003 release through Roadrunner/Island/Def Jam is being eyed for the band's new opus.
Bad news for all Paragon of Beauty fans: the band have split up! Marcus has already started a new project. He will record the 1st album with Shivertrap this year. Musically you can expect an extravagant mixture of the bands Red House Painters and A Perfect Circle with Marcus B's typical melancholic guitars and style of singing. The P.O.B bass player Taisha is also a member of Shivertrip. The other .P.O.B members meanwhile are doing new songs under the name Solidy Singular.
