British metal band Cradle Of Filth has announced that they have been forced to cancel their N. American tour due to US immigration issues. The band was going to tour in support of their latest album The Manticore And Other Horrors, which was released last October.
Per their announcement: Cradle Of Filth are really sorry to tell all of their fans that their US tour ’28 Days Closer to Hell’ is going to have to be cancelled, due to US immigration issues beyond the band’s control.
They have been desperately trying to solve these problems, but it has become evident they are not going to be resolved in time for the band to embark on a tour that starts next week.
The band sincerely apologise to all their fans and to the other acts on the tour and want to assure people they have made every effort possible to go ahead with the tour. READ MORE

So being that I haven’t had cable or basic TV channels for about 17, almost 18 years, I had never heard of MTV’s Made, a show which takes people who have a dream, supplies them with a ” made coach”, and helps them achieve their dream.
In an episode that aired on Monday night, 16-year old Julia aspires to become a metal singer in an effort to attain a sense of self-confidence that has been destroyed by constant bullying, both in school and on the Internet. Her coach was The Agonist‘s vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, and cameos from Iwrestledabearonce and Winds Of Plague can also be seen. You can watch the entire episode below as well as read a response from myself.
Century Media artist The Agonist will be releasing The Escape EP, which features two brand-new songs, Lonely Solipsist and The Escape. This EP will only be available on the band’s upcoming tour with Kamelot, Alestorm, and Blackguard and CMDistro.com for the duration of the tour. After that, the EP will only be available as a digital download. So, if you want to get your hands on a physical special edition, you either gotta go to a show or snag it online.

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t appreciate a sexy, beautiful woman fronting a metal band? Something about a gorgeous woman screaming at me is…well…kind of a turn on. Don’t judge me, okay? In any case, it turns out PETA2 also thinks the same thing as they chose Alissa White-Gluz, vocalist of The Agonist, over Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, and Olivia Wilde as their “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian of 2011″. Personally, I think all four women are insanely hot and I would be thrilled if the most I could do is massage their eyebrows. What do you think? Should Alissa have won?
Bloody-Disgusting caught up with Henrik Ohlsson, drummer of Scar Symmetry, during their US tour with headliner Epica. We started off talking about the previous night’s party and transitioned into how soon we can expect a new album to finally chatting about horror movies.
