DOWN: "After conferring with the promoters of the upcoming Feb. 8th show at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans we felt it would be in everyone’s best interest to postpone the concert."


New Orleans, Louisiana sludge metal warriors DOWN have sent this statement confirming the bands 2/8/2016 show at NEW ORLEANS (Louisiana)  CIVIC THEATER is "postponed".




Yesterday, in consequence of PHIL ANSELMOS behavior during DIMEBASH 2016, DOWN'S (featuring PHIL ANSELMO) 2/8/2016 hometown show at the NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA  CIVIC THEATER has been cancelled by the venue and promoters.


Yesterday, PEPPER KEENAN, bassist of New Orleans, Louisiana metal bands CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and DOWN has sent this statement regarding PHILIP H. ANSELMO'S behavior during DIMEBASH 2016.
Yesterday, PHILIP H. ANSELMO (formerly of PANTERA, currently of DOWN, THE ILLEGALS, SUPERJOINT) has sent (another) apology regarding his behavior at DIMEBASH 2016. In consequence to PHIL ANSELMO's behavior at DIMEBASH 2016, his band DOWN was kicked off FORTAROCK 2016 via the festivals promoters.








Late last month, PHIL ANSELMO issued a video apology after sieg heiling and screaming "WHITE POWER!" as he was lead off the stage via former TYPE O NEGATIVE (current DANZIG) drummer JOHNNY KELLY at the end of DIMEBASH 2016.



Promoters for FORTAROCK FESTIVAL 2016, set to take place 6/4 and 5th, 2016 GOFFERTPARK, NIGMEGAN, NETHERLANDS have announced that in response to PHILIP H. ANSELMO'S actions at DIMEBASH 2016, New Orleans, Louisiana sludge/metal warriors DOWN (featuring PHIL ANSELMO) have been cancelled by the promoters of FORTA ROCK and BOSPOP 2016.


Many artists and metal webzines including METALSUCKS, CVLT NATION, MACHINE HEAD, ALL SHALL PERISH and more have spoken out against PHIL ANSELMO's actions at DIMEBASH 2016 and racism.


RITA HANEY, (DARRELL "DIMEBAG" ABBOTT'S WIDOW) has posted a statement via INSTAGRAM regarding PHILIP H. ANSELMO'S behavior during DIMEBASH 2016 and MACHINE HEAD guitarist/vocalist ROBB FLYNN'S recently published video criticizing PHIL ANSELMO'S actions.


DIMEBASH 2016 (a benefit in the name of late PANTERA guitarist DARRELL "DIMEBAG" ABBOTT) , 1/22/2016 @ LUCKY STRIKE LIVE HOLLYWOOD, L.A. CALIFORNIA featured
PHILIP H. ANSELMO (PANTERA, DOWN, THE ILLEGALS), DAVE LOMBARDO (FORMERLY  OF SLAYER), ROBERT TRUJILLO (METALLICA)  and DAVE GROHL (FORMERLY OF NIRVANA, FOO FIGHTERS) as they jammed a cover of the MOTORHEAD classic "ACE OF SPADES".

Also, REX BROWN (former PANTERA bassist), PHILIP H. ANSELMO and MACHINE HEAD and more jammed on a rendition of the PANTERA classic "WALK".

DIMEBASH was a fund raiser for (late DIO vocalist) RONNIE JAMES DIO'S SHOUT OUT CANCER FUND in collaboration with RIDE FOR DIME.




FROM DOWN:
Most of you know this already but passing along...
To the DOWN faithful,
After conferring with the promoters of the upcoming Feb. 8th show at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans we felt it would be in everyone’s best interest to postpone the concert.
It is our belief that this is the right thing to do at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
with respect,
DOWN management





FROM NEW ORLEANS, CIVIC THEATER:
After recent actions by Phil Anselmo during the Dimebash event this past week, we have cancelled Down’s performance at the Civic. We do not tolerate intolerant behavior, and there is no room for that in our venue or our city. Refunds are available at point of purchase. In addition to offering full refunds for all ticket purchases, the Civic has made a donation to the Jewish Federation of New Orleans, pledging our support for a united community.
“Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all.”

BARBARIAN: REVEAL FIRST TRACK FOR NEW HHR ALBUM & LAUNCH CD/LP/SHIRT/DIGITAL PRE-ORDER.



Italian thrash metal warriors BARBARIAN are streaming "ABSOLUTE METAL", a track from the bands anticipated new release "CULT OF THE EMPTY GRAVE", due to be unleashed 4/15/2016 via HELLS HEADBANGERS.






BARBARIAN unleashed "FAITH EXTINGUISHER", 1/23/2014 via DOOMENTIA RECORDS.





FROM HELLS HEADBANGERS (RECORDS):
..
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present the highly anticipated third album of Italy's BARBARIAN, Cult of the Empty Grave. Since 2009, the power-trio have been killing it in the metal underground, culminating in 2014's classic Faith Extinguisher on the highly respected Doomentia label. Now, with the backing of longtime fans HELLS HEADBANGERS, the true BARBARIAN are poised to hail and kill, far and wide, wherever the mighty hooves of the Apocalypse take them, and Cult of the Empty Grave shall be the soundtrack to that domination. The BARBARIAN sound is one that's both ancient and fresh, and has been firmly in place since the beginning. Imagine a sweat-drenched symbiosis of early Running Wild and '80s Manowar with the panache of classic Venom: Cult of the Empty Grave eclipses such a hypothesis, but is rendered with the now-trademark BARBARIAN touch, one that's boisterous and bloodlusting and unapologetically OTT. In the wise words of one Cult of the Empty Grave track, it's verily "Absolute Metal." Total fun done with total seriousness and with total intolerance for posers (leave the hall!), BARBARIAN hail the banner of heavy metal and beckon you to enter the Cult of the Empty Grave!

WHEN NOTHING REMAINS: STREAMING TWO NEW TRACKS "REUNITED IN THE GRAVE" and "DROWNING IN SORROWS" VIA BANDCAMP

Swedish death/doom metal warriors WHEN NOTHING REMAINS, via BANDCAMP, are streaming  "REUNITED IN THE GRAVE" and "DROWNING IN SORROWS", two new tracks from the bands anticipated new release  "IN MEMORIAM", due to be unleashed 2/22/2016 via SOLITUDE PRODUCTIONS.







WHEN NOTHING REMAINS unleashed "THE DARK SERENITY", 6/3/2013 via SOLITUDE PRODUCTIONS.

 FROM SOLITUDE PRODUCTIONS:
 The third album by the Swedish masters of atmospheric doom death metal features everything the band is loved for: melodic compositions decorated with catchy guitar solos and atmospheric keyboards, with a harmonious blend of clean vocals and growl. At the same time, the symphonic sound is now the key element, which gives the material a special expression, epic and originality.
Conceptually, the artwork of the CD completes the story told in the previous two albums, the tragic story of love, life and death, begun in 1800.
