UK metal stalwarts Fury and Dakesis will be teaming up for the “Lost in the Dawn” tour this November!
Following on from an explosive summer of festivals for both bands including Bloodstock Open Air, LoStock, Breaking Bands, HRH Metal and Hammerfest, this tour will be the last chance for many people to see both bands before they retreat back to the studio for work on new albums.
Dakesis recently announced that bass player Amie Chatterley is currently pregnant, and will be 8 ½ months at their imminent performance at Bloodstock Open Air, however she has no plans to sit out on the fun and says “We’re taking a break from touring in September and October, but we’re going to be roaring to hit the road come November, and we couldn’t be more excited to be doing it with our good friends Fury”
Fury drummer Alasdair Davis adds “We’ve been itching to hit the road again and for the first time we’ll be doing it as a headline band, sharing the honours with our good friends in Dakesis. We’re looking forward to playing what is sure to be one of the most exciting metal tours in recent times, at some of our favourite venues across the UK”

Bassist and vocalist Eero Sipilä commented:
"United Kingdom - the holy land of heavy metal! It’s taken its bloody time for us to make it past London, but like they say, all bad is worth waiting. We're super excited to finally explore UK further, and meet with all the people who've had to live without the beast for so very long. This will indeed be a blast! Majesty are old touring mates of ours, so it’s great having them on board to bring in some well needed German sex-appeal ". - Eero / BB

Heavy Metal legends Iron Maiden continue their hugely successful The Book of Souls World Tour into 2017 with a series of European arena shows opening in Antwerp, Belgium on April 22, Maiden’s first visit to this city since 1981 on the Killers Tour!

There will be 8 dates across England in Nottingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Birmingham and London, two in Scotland in Glasgow and Aberdeen and one in Cardiff, Wales.
Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris says,
“As it’s been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time like Leeds where we haven’t played since 2005 and Liverpool where we haven’t played since 1990. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas. The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.”

Doro released her 2 Blu-Ray / 3DVD+CD package entitled Strong And Proud - 30 Years Of Rock And Metal through Nuclear Blast earlier this year.
To celebrate her 30th anniversary of performing live, Doro spent 2013/2014 by touring the world extensively, a journey which included three official anniversary shows. The tour kicked off impressively in front of 85,000 people at the world's biggest metal festival, Wacken, followed by two sold-out nights in her home town of Düsseldorf, where she also started her outstanding career. And everyone came to party with Doro: Phil Campbell (Motörhead), Biff Byford (Saxon), Chris Caffery (Savatage), Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden), Joakim Brodén (Sabaton), Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), Udo Dirkschneider, Uli Jon Roth, Lordi as well as many more amazing guests.
"We spent endless hours, days, and nights working on the DVD," said Doro, "because we wanted to present a real highlight for all rock and metal fans for the 30th anniversary. We took care of every detail. It began already with the fantastic stage at Wacken. We worked one year on its design. In Düsseldorf, we even celebrated two nights in a row. One 'classic night' with a 40-piece orchestra and one 'balls-to-the-wall' rock show on the second evening. It continued subsequently non stop - with an anniversary tour which led us to Russia, South America, and my second home, the US, among other places."
Strong And Proud - 30 Years Of Rock And Metal contains 38 songs in total, including all Doro classics, many old Warlock hits and cover versions of songs such as "Fear Of The Dark" (Iron Maiden) and "Balls To The Wall" (Accept). Additionally, Strong And Proud - 30 Years Of Rock And Metal offers a unique two+-hour documentary, Behind The Curtain, Inside The Heart Of Doro. It gives the spectator deep and detailed insights into the world of Doro.
"There's great footage from all over the world and never before seen pictures from our life behind the stage. The camera team accompanied us for over one year everywhere and captured very emotional, intimate, and human situations."

Moving forward, all new Orange Goblin recordings will be released via Spinefarm / Candlelight Records; OG can now take their place amongst metal heavyweights such as Venom, Electric Wizard, Airbourne,Ghost and Rammstein (to name but a few).

Following this, the band can now reveal that they will be touring the UK in late September / early October, playing select shows in towns and cities that they did not visit on the 20th Anniversary Tour last December.

Noturnall, the Brazilian group formed by the Shaman members: Thiago Bianchi (vocals), Fernando Quesada (bass), Leo Mancini (guitar) and Junior Carelli (keyboards), along with the drummer Aquiles Priester (Primal Fear / Hangar / ex-Angra), will embark on their first ever European tour in December.
The group will play seven shows in four different countries: Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium.
10.12 - Madrid (Spain) @ Sala We Rock
11.12 - Porto (Portugal) @ Metal Point
12.12 - Lisbon (Portugal) @ RCA Club
13.12 - Zaragoza (Spain) @ Sala Utopia
14.12 - Worblaufen (Switzerland) @ Downi
15.12 - Roeselare (Belgium) @ De Verlichte Geest
18.12 - Porto (Portugal) @ Metal Point
Drummer Aquiles Priester believes that this European tour will close the band's first year on a very positive note:
"I think our year could not end in a better way",
"Before going to Europe for the first time, we will go on a major Brazilian tour in a way that only well organized and well structured bands can do. Our trip to Europe would not come at a better time, because we'll be well rehearsed and ready to perform a great show".
"Let's end the year on a high note, showing our music to a new audience (who already know us from other bands), the modern and powerful music of Noturnall. I'm sure that we will succeed and this will give us a big breath for next year, which will be a definitive year in the band's career with the plans that we are drawing up".
BAND FACT: Rhyme has opened up for Hellyeah, Gotthard and Grave Digger.
Italian Heavy Rock / Post-Grungers Rhyme have released the official video for the song "Party Right", taken from the band's critically acclaimed new album "The Seed And The Sewage".
Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YITGEU5tlEs
In recent years Rhyme have toured Europe with celebrated acts such as Papa Roach and Misfits, they have appeared two times at Rocklahoma Festival in the US and played countless shows including support slots for Hellyeah, Vista Chino and Gotthard among others. The band have also been confirmed as support for The Darkness on their upcoming Italian tour in November.
"The Seed And The Sewage" draws its influences from Nineties Metal, Hard Rock and Southern Rock, mixing them with deep lyrics inspired by the world's social and economic events. Irony and rage, fury, sarcasm and desperation are all elements that can be traced in Rhyme's musical path, which is now more relevant than ever. A number of guest musicians, including members of bands such as Destrage, Elvenking and Secret Sphere have also participated in the recording sessions.
"The Seed And The Sewage" will be released in North America in November on Bakerteam Records / Entertainment One.
