Singer And Bassist Leave Dream Evil

Vocalist Niklas Isfeldt and bassist Peter Stålfors have left their band Dream Evil. They have posted the following statement on their reasons:

"Dear followers,

Because of personal issues and the fact that Niklas has problems with constantly recurring health problems we have taken the painful decision to leave the band.

All our friends are telling us that it's a bad idea to leave the band now when it's starting to get big, but you may come to a point in your life where you have to make a choice. We have now come to this point in our lives and the choice we have made is to put more time into our families and work.

We've known for a long time that the bigger DREAM EVIL becomes the more time it will take from the other important things in our lives and in time it was inevitable to make a decision. Therefore we have decided to leave DREAM EVIL.

There are no hard feelings between us and the other guys in DREAM EVIL, We’re still the best of friends and they totally understand the position we are in.

So it is with the best confidence we now pass over the mantle to the new members Jake E Berg and Tommy Larsson. They have our blessings and we are confident they will fill our shoes just perfectly and leave nothing for the fans to be desired.

We wish to thank all fans for the support through the years and for making the time in DREAM EVIL a memory for life.

Stay Evil In The Night
Peter and Niklas"

Blind Guardian Announce Their New Drummer

This news was posted on the official website of Blind Guardian by their frontman Hansi Kursch:

"Hi bards,

This time it fortunately is on me to deliver some good news. Very good news in fact!

The seemingly endless time of waiting for a new drummer and speculations who could possibly be the new one has finally come to an end. We have found what we have been searching for…

A few weeks ago an unknown guy who introduced himelf as Frederik Ehmke applied for the job as a drummer in a fairly firm manner. His vital, expressive and skillful performances of some B.G. classics ("Journey Through The Dark“, "Time Stands Still“ and "And Then There Was Silence“) blew us away completely . Pretending not to be convinced we invited him to do a shoot out recording session under real production terms to check out if the creative chemistry would also work out fine. After finishing these recordings it was obvious to us: Frederik is going to be our new drummer!

It was essential for us to find a musician, who on one side would be able to integrate old Guardian trademarks in his play, but on the other side would also be confident enough to bring in his own vision of the BLIND GUARDIAN drums in a tasteful and, for the music, suitable way. Frederik is a calm and handsome fellow, who’s aware of his abilities and who also knows what he wants. For us he is the lucky draw.

We are convinced you will be as impressed by his drum performance as we are. Now we are looking forward to starting the next album production. There is a good amount of work ahead of us but we are absolutely ready to go. You can expect a very interesting album with strong songs on it. We will keep you informed. "

This press release was issued by Roadrunner Records in order to get attention to their "Roadrunner All Stars" CD that is planned to celebrate the label's 25th Anniversary.

"To celebrate our 25th Anniversary, later this year we will be releasing a CD that up until now we have been referring to only as the Roadrunner All Stars.

No musician appears on any song more than once (ceptin' for the four team captians), and over 50 musicians will be recording among the 12 songs - (click here for more details).

SO, WHAT DO WE TITLE THIS RELEASE? We are asking YOU for the answer. Come the end of July, we will be picking a name from your entries. The person coming up with the chosen name will receive a credit in the CD package liner notes, plus all the RR 25th Anniversary related releases:"

Sepultura - Roots
Fear Factory - Demanufacture
Mercyful Fate - Melissa
King Diamond - Abigail

Mushroomhead DVD Release Set Back to August 9th

Mushroomhead have pushed the release date of their DVD, that they produced and filmed themselves, back to August the 9th. A statement from 'St1tch':

"Hello everyone. I'm sorry to bring the news about the DVD being pushed until August 9th. I know you all have been waiting patiently for it to be released, we just had no idea orders were going to be such a success. Lumberjack (the distribution company) has decided to hold off to complete all orders around America. However, we are still receiving 1,000 copies and still plan on selling it at the show on the 25th to make sure we don't piss off fans that were going in hopes of getting the DVD that night. So, there is still a signing and you will be able to buy "Volume 1" this coming Monday at Peabody's. The DVD will be in stores August 9th. Sorry for the inconvenience... hope everyone is one the same page now."

Arch Enemy About The Ozzfest

The following message about their appearance at Ozzfest 2005 was posted by vocalist Angela Gossow at the official Arch Enemy website:


Here we are in Hartford today, played the first 2 Ozzfest gigs + a truly amazing headline show in Montreal, last night on the 16th of July.
Montreal – you guys and girls are simply pure fucking metal!!! Thanx again for the great support, the packed club and the frenetic response! You are the best!

Ozzfest is going really well for us, great crowd response so far – and this at an ungodly, way too early time in the morning. The signings at the FYE and Jägermeister tents are overwhelming. Great to see so many fans there!

Tomorrow we will play another off day headline show in Burlington VT. THE HAUNTED and THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER will be supporting us. Make sure you don’t miss out on a night of raging metal if you live around there, crazy fuckers!"
