Nile To Score "The Mummy" Sequel

American death metal veterans Nile has been confirmed by Universal Pictures to score, "The Mummy: Resurrection," the sequel to 2017's, "The Mummy," which starred Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella.

A spokesman for Universal Pictures stated: "The movie will be take place in the more rural areas of Egypt and we felt it was important to get the right music for the setting. It has to be true to Egypt while also being able to attract viewers from around the globe, much like a tourism spot. Nile's brutal but complex music is perfect for this, as they seem to be totally in tune with the history of ancient Egypt, while also being one of the biggest names in death metal."

Nile themselves have yet to comment and not much is known about the sequel beyond the title, which implies that Sofia Boutella will be returning in the titular role, while strong rumours claim that Gal Gadot of Wonder Woman fame will be joining the project as the protagonist and that "Star Trek: Beyond" director Justin Lin will helm the film. Other names rumoured to be cast include Brendan Fraser, star of the original trilogy, as well as Andy Serkis, Riz Ahmed and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Nile themselves are currently hard at work on a new studio album, which will be the first since, "Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka" not to feature vocalist/guitarist Dallas Toler Wade and their first with his replacement, Brian Kingsland of Enthean fame.

With Pentagram founder and front-man Bobby Liebling still in jail, Ozzy Osbourne has been tapped to fill in on vocals for Pentagram's Spring tour dates. Ozzy will take a break from his farewell tour for the short stint of dates with Pentagram.

Commenting on Pentagram, Ozzy said, "I didn't know about Pentagram was until I'd left Sabbath. But they were right there doing a very similar thing to Sabbath the whole time."

On Bobby's life and current situation Ozzy had to say: "For what it's worth: That could have been me. That could have been any number of people. That's why I say to myself every day, 'God, you're fucking lucky, Ozzy!' And I wanted to help out Pentagram and old school metal fans in this small way."

Liebling is still serving his 18 month sentence for "Physical Abuse Of A Vulnerable Adult" for assaulting his mother. It is assumed that he will retake the helm of the band once released.

The upcoming Pentagram tour dates are as follows:

5/17 - Seattle, WA @ Studio Seven

Orange Amplification Posts Spoof TV Shopping Video

Orange Amplification is in on the joke as International Artist Relations Manager, Alex Auxier stars with Troy McLawhorn of Evanescence in a new video that spoofs all their new guitar pedals, parodying a TV shopping channel.

In the new video, Alex overcomes hitches with the film set, sound technical difficulties and the bored, stroppy, foul-mouthed presenter Jeremy to tell viewers about the attributes of each pedal as Troy demonstrates them.

Following an argument about whether he can take calls from potential customers, Alex eventually gets to talk to Ler LaLonde (Primus), Stephen Carpenter (Deftones), Gary Busey (Buddy Holly in The Buddy Holly Story), Jim Root (Slipknot), Joe Trohman (Fall Out Boy) and Matt Pike (Sleep / High On Fire).
