Metal Poet – Issue 5th Metal Poetry Release and Artwork

Metal Poet has issued a 5th release of metal poetry, titled “Echoes of an Empty Heart”, which includes artwork from Eddie Mize. A personal message from head honcho Michael Terrax is also as follows:

“Thanks for the continued support of the Metal Poet site. As always, your emails and feedback are encouraging, and I want to thank those that have spent the time corresponding with me.

“Today I posted my fifth collection of metal poetry, titled “Echoes of an Empty Heart”. This is my most personal work yet, like my soul is being exposed in this album.

“Because of its strong personal nature, I approached Eddie Mize, who agreed to create artwork based on my vision. Eddie has created a unique image that is truly expressive and intense. More of his dramatic and talented work can be found on www.artofeddiemize.com. This is the first image I have placed on metalpoet.com of myself; I felt the album’s contents deserved to have such an intimate connection.

“As you read through these pieces, you may recall harbouring these thoughts and feelings yourself. Just as Metal is the perfect vehicle for purging and expressing that which cannot be conveyed any other way, this collection is my attempt to articulate what lies deep within.

“Jenifer, you will never be forgotten.”

Buckcherry – Return With ‘Fifteen’ – ‘Crazy Bitch’ Single Crushing Radio

2006 marks the return of BUCKCHERRY with their first studio album in four years, “Fifteen”, out April 11 on Eleven Seven Music in association with ADA, a Warner Music Group Company.

After virally blowing up via the Internet and satellite radio, the raucous “Crazy Bitch” is also catching on at commercial radio. The single is the #1 most-added song at both the Active and Mainstream Rock radio formats. “I am such a believer this song is a smash that 99.5 KISS immediately put it into medium rotation,” noted L.A. Lyod, Program Director for 99.5 in San Antonio. “Ever since I saw the video a few weeks ago, I felt this one was going to be HUGE.” “Crazy Bitch”–currently one of the fastest growing and most-requested songs on rock radio–is garnering strong early support from key Alternative stations such as KDLD (Los Angeles), WBCN (Boston) and KXTE (Las Vegas).

After a month-long North American tour, BUCKCHERRY founders lead singer Josh Todd and co-writer/guitarist Keith Nelson as well as three new members — Xavier Muriel (drums), Stevie D. (guitars) and bassist Jimmy Ashhurst — will return to Los Angeles with a March residency at The Whisky on March 14, 21 and 28. In addition, the band has been invited to perform at the NCAA Final Four event on April 1 in Indianapolis at the WFBQ/WRBX Budweiser Tourney Tent directly following the first game. Expect the group to debut new material on the road, in addition to performing fan favorites.

Metallica – Set To Induct Black Sabbath Into Hall of Fame

METALLICA have released the following update:

“So there we are, hanging out at HQ getting ready for our first visit to South Africa, and a call comes in wondering if we can leave a few days early and stop by New York to induct a bunch of guys from Birmingham, England (they’re called BLACK SABBATH, you might’ve heard of them) into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It took us all of 3/4 of a second to say “fuck yeah!!”

BLACK SABBATH wrote the book on heavy music, and like many other snot-nosed kids, we read it religiously over and over again. For all of us in METALLICA, BLACK SABBATH are a major influence not only on our music, but on our lives, and as you can imagine, we’re psyched to join Bill, Geezer, Ozzy, and Tony for the induction ceremony on Monday, March 13.

Not only will we be inducting SABBATH, we are going to make a humble attempt at playing some of their songs live in front of the gathered masses, including, most humbling of all, the four members of the band themselves.

If you want to check it out, VH-1 will be there with their cameras. For show times look here.”

HORSE The Band – Return From the U.K., New SMN Hosted Official Forum

HORSE THE BAND have returned home from their U.K. tour:

“We are back from the United Kingdom and we met two new interesting people the whole time we were there. One was named “Lee.” When people wanted to talk to him they would say the sound “Lee” and he would talk to you. He is from Kent. The other one was named Simon. He had brown hair.

Tour was horrible. Even though almost every single show was sold out, you tire quickly of that kind of success and it leaves you with an empty feeling. The only thing that kept us going was trashing the FINAL SIGH‘s dressing room every night and then blaming it on them on stage. Also crossing out everything that any band had ever written or drawn in dressing rooms was fulfilling, at best. We have a new message board that works. Whatever.”

Vicious Circle – Sign Deal to Crash Music

Since 1989, New Jersey based VICIOUS CIRCLE have been churning out brutality with their own brand of extreme chaos. The band released their debut album entitled “Cryptic Void” in 1993 on the now defunct JL America label.

Thine Eyes Bleed – Consider Themselves “Underdogs” on Unholy Alliance Tour – Out to Prove a Point

Canadian thrash/metalcore act THINE EYES BLEED have grabbed the opening slot on the most anticipated metal tour of the summer, the UNHOLY ALLIANCE TOUR.

“Right now we are thinking, ‘Holy f*ck, we got the big one!” says THINE EYES BLEED singer Justin Wolfe about the tour. “We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Unholy Alliance Tour and as of right now it’s still overwhelming”

The tour – which is headlined by SLAYER and features MASTODON, LAMB OF GOD, CHILDREN OF BODOM and THINE EYES BLEED ? will launch on June 6, 2006 and run for two months across North America.

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity that we have always dreamt of having as a band,” comments Wolfe. “Personally we have no choice but to go out and prove ourselves being the ‘underdogs’ of the tour and we want to take full advantage of it. We have worked so hard to get to this point and it’s really going to show.”

“This tour will definitely leave its mark in every city it hits. It’s a tour that any metalhead shouldn’t pass up.”

In the meantime before the massive tour begins THINE EYES BLEED, who released their debut album In the Wake of Separation on The End Records in June of 2005, will be out on the road all spring on various tours, including opening slots on tours with SIX FEET UNDER, RINGWORM, NECROPHAGIST and others.

Underoath – Adam Dutkiewicz Produced Disc Ready for June 20 Release

UNDEROATH have announced they’ll release their new album June 20 on Tooth and Nail/Solid State Records.

Co-produced by Matt Goldman and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, the Florida-based sextet are in Los Angeles mixing the as-yet-untitled album with Chris Lord Alge (GREEN DAY, ROB ZOMBIE). “This is the record we’ve been striving to write for the past five years, and I never thought I’d see the day when it actually happened,” explains McTague. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’ve been creating for the past few months, but in the end, if everyone hated it, we’d still think it’s probably the best record we may ever be a part of.”

This marks UNDEROATH‘s third full-length CD and the follow-up to their massive breakout album “They’re Only Chasing Safety”, which has now sold over 300,000 copies. In the Alternative Press cover story on UNDEROATH, the magazine described “They’re Only Chasing Safety” as “an unqualified success, one of the most coherent albums in post-genre rock, a movement that’s been spreading like wildfire since the walls between hardcore, pop, metal and emo were demolished” (September 2005).

In touring news, UNDEROATH is confirmed for the UK’s Give It A Name Festival April 29-30 in London and Manchester. On May 3, the band will kick off a headlining U.S. trek, with POISON THE WELL, AS CITIES BURN, SPITFIRE and SINCE BY MAN supporting.
