"There were some good guesses as to who the vocalist was on the sound sample that we put up a while ago (here). A few even got it right: the first vocalist who will star on the new Ayreon is Magali Luyten (Virus IV and Beautiful Sin). You can check myspace pages here:
Twelve vocalists have been confirmed so far, with a number of vocalists still to be added over the next few weeks.
A few more recording dates have been set, so keep tuned".
On Saturday the 7th of July this year (07-07-07), Mark Jansen, guitarist of Epica, will ride the Marmotte for the benefit of the World Wide Fund for Nature. The Marmotte is a French one-day cycle marathon of 174 km. Despite the fact that this marathon is not very well known to most Dutch people, it is one of the most renowned among the fanatic cyclists. This competitive journey can be compared to a heavy tour leg in the Alps. The ride involves 4 mountain passes, of which 3 are considered hors category (toughest mountains) in the Tour de France.
The marathon will involve the next mountains: Col de la Croix de Fer, col du Télégraphe, col du Galibier and last but not least, l'Alpe de l'Huez needs to be mounted.

"Psycroptic have just returned from a short Australian tour and are now currently hard at work writing material for the as yet untitled new album.

It is hoped the band will enter the studio in late 2007 to record, with an early to mid 2008 release planned."
After truly epic performances opening up the main stage at this years Download Festival and Metal Hammer's Golden God Awards, the Finnish Viking warriors Turisas have announced their headlining UK tour for September 2007 in support of their new album 'The Varangian Way'.
Warlord Nygard comments on the forthcoming tour "It's been well over a year since the last Turisas headlining show in the UK. It seems we have only been over for short one-off support and festival sets, but now that will finally change. We felt so bad about us having to cancel a show in London earlier this year, that we are now not only returning to make up for that show, but with a full tour consisting of eight shows across the country. We will be bringing over the full package, not only a 15 minute showcase set, so prepare yourselves for one of the greatest nights out you will be getting for a while."
