In an email sent out to members of the press, Californian thrash metal icons Metallica has announced that drummer and founding member Lars Ulrich will be unable to join them on the upcoming European Tour. No further information was revealed, but the band asked for the press and fans to respect the drummer's privacy.

Taking his place behind the drum kit will be former Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren, now of Megadeth, Bent Sea, Tronos, Brave The Cold and Kill Division. While no quote was given, Verbeuren was said to be very excited about the opportunity to perform with "America's number one thrash band" and claimed it had been a while since he was "part of a show people still wanted to see."

The musician, who has also filled in for Testament, Devin Townsend, At The Gates and Satyricon and is known for his many collaborations, is expected to also be ready to fill in for Pantera should they need him and is excited about the off days in the tour schedule, as it will give him the opportunity to form another five or six bands.

Legendary grindcore/death metal band Macabre are enjoying a healthy chart resurgence for their classic track "Hitchhiker", taken from their 2000 concept album, “Dahmer“.

DEVO Recording A Heavy Metal Album

After creating nine albums of quirky 80’s rock music, the very eclectic Akron, Ohio based band is currently recording a heavy metal album. The album is expected to be released late summer on Season of Mystify Records. The album will have new synth-metal material along with some metalized versions of their most popular hits to include “Whip It,” “Mongoloid” and “Jocko Homo.”

Lead vocalist and guitarist, Mark Mothersbaugh, had this to say about the change of genre experimentation: “In our heyday, we had our own little niche for sure but we were always in awe of bands like Motorhead, AC/DC and Ted Nugent. Mostly because all the girls liked them, not so much for the music they created.”

DEVO is expected to go on a short tour run with Baby Metal during the fall and are rumored to be added to the Hellfest and Wacken line-ups this summer.

Alestorm Tour Bus Boarded!

Scottish pirate metal icons Alestorm has revealed that they were left in a state of disarray while on tour in Florida, after their tour bus was raided by rival buccaneers from the Tampa area. The band claims that while travelling down I-275, they were surprised by a loud thud on the side of their tour bus. Rushing to the windows expecting to see that they had struck something, they were instead met with the sight of a long blank of wood sticking into the baggage space of their coach, as well as a quote, "fucking massive pirate ship shaped van."

Rushing to defend themselves, the band looked in the back of the bus, assured that it had been fitted with a Cutlass, only to find a DVD of the Dakota Fanning movie of the same name. After narrowly missing their unwanted guests when throwing the disc starboard and failing to negotiate peace when instead of asking the boarders terms, their parrot, Craiglang would only squawk, "I pumped yer maw," the quintet were soon forced to hand over their booty... And their treasure, including all instruments, money and merchandise, save for copies of Alestorm's secret sea shanty single, asking, "Hasn't that fad died yet?"

The band are now safely at home in Scotland and are still expected to release their new album, "Seventh Rum Of A Seventh Rum" this June, as well as to embark on their tour of Europe, where nothing bad ever happens.
