Soulfly, Ill Nino Confirmed For Window Rock Fest

Soulfly have been confirmed as the headliners of "Window Rock Fest II" on August 14, 2004 in Window Rock, Arizona. Dubbed the largest metal music festival on Native American Soil, the one-day event will feature performances by 34 bands of hardcore, rock, punk, and blues music on three stages, a rave with DJ Abel, A skateboarding and bike competition, and main stage MCed by The Lizardman. Direct support at the festival will come from Ill Nino, with additional performances by Death Angel and Crisis. They will all be supported by 21 of the best Navajo/Native American metal/punk bands around, and some of the best bands from the southwest.

The main stage will be MCed by The Lizardman, described as "one of the most complete sideshow performers in history." In addition to his unique physical transformation, he has mastered an incredible repertoire of unusual acts and skills. He and his stage partner, Scott, combine these skills with extensive and diverse experience in live performance to create one of a kind show for all occasions.

On the main stage will be an exhibition by Fireblood, a team of body modification experts that use the art of suspension, piercing the flesh with hooks and being hoisted up in the air by wires attached to the hooks, in their act. There will also be an amateur skateboarding and bike competition by Tsosie Shindig in the Gorman Hall, which will be turned into the savage skateboarding and bike pavilion.

After the competition is completed and the bands performing on the third stage are finished, then DJ Abel will take over with his own brand of DJing for the rave, which will last until the closing of the event at 2:00 am.

Parts of the proceeds are going to the development of a skateboarding park for the youth of the Navajo Nation, which will be planned for the Window Rock area.

Flotsam and Jetsam Added To Thrash Domination '04

Flotsam and Jetsam have been added to the upcoming "Thrash Domination '04" Japanese tour in September. Joining Flotsam and Jetsam on the bill will be Testament, Overkill and Death Angel. Confirmed dates are as follows:

September 24 - Osaka, Japan @ Namba Hatch
September 25 - Tokyo, Japan @ Club Citta
September 26 - Tokyo, Japan @ Club Citta

Flotsam and Jetsam are currently writing material for their Crash Music Inc. debut and are tentatively planning on entering the studio in August for an early 2005 release. The new material is described by drummer Craig Nielsen as "leaps and bounds heavier than the last four records combined, definitely a return to the bands roots but still with some ambient surprises that break up all the speed riffing. There seems to be an inspired vibe going on in the writing process that is taking on a life of its own."

Crash Music is distributed in the U.S. by Caroline Distribution and has offices in France that handle the European territories through Crash Music Europe.
