07:20 - Apothecary In other news, this album is so addictive it should be a Schedule I drug [link]
07:12 - theFIST wormed are at willowtip, they toured with those 2
06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most
06:34 - flightoficarus Big sale at Willowtip. Best band there besides Ulcerate and Gigan?
06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones
06:30 - deadone That doesn't preclude Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin being pioneers in heavy metal and as such considered part of the genre, even though they happily sit outside it sometimes.
The following announcement has been psoted on the official Uleashed website:
"Sadly....and just like with a few other tours before ours..... The tour promoter Metallysee fucked up again...!!!
It is with anger in our hearts we have to announce that the european tour has been cancelled for reasons completely beyond our control. Ourselves and our brothers in Belphegor tried in a combined effort to make this tour happen until the very last minute, but in the end there was nothing we could do.
HOWEVER, thanks to the local promoter in Ireland the shows in Dublin and Cork this weekend will happen as planned!
We will also do the headline festivals in Germany:
The Deathcrush fest in Adelsheim on the 26th of May and Hellraizer fest on the 27th in Leipzig.
We are of course extremely disappointed but will not let this bring us down!
We will spend no extra energy on slandering Metallysee, it is far too obvious that this company is not worth mentioning ever again.
Unleashed will reschedule the European tour to later this year, most likely in the autumn."
Metallysee was also responsible for the cancellation of the remaining of the Earthshaker Roadshock Tour (News Story) and the Excess Of Evil tour (News Story).
Trust me, here in Belgium we're not that happy neither with the total mess they've made.. I think they have some very serious internal problems over there. I'm sure this will be a severe slur for their name and reputation they've been building up in all those years, and I'll doubt they'll ever be able to totally make up for all these cancellations..
