Swedish melodic thrashers SOILWORK have announced, due to scheduling difficulties,the band has cancelled out of the SOLD OUT WACKEN OPEN AIR 2014 FESTIVAL, set to take place 7/31-8/2/2014 WACKEN, GERMANY.
SOILWORK unleashed The Living Infinite“ (2 CD) 2/27/2013 (ASIA), 3/1/2013 (EU), 3/5/2013 (NORTH AMERICA) via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS. FROM SOILWORK:
We're very sad to announce that our headlining performance at Wacken was cancelled for reasons beyond our control. Mistakes and miscommunication during the booking process of this show have led to unsolvable last minute problems regarding our arrival and show times.
We offer our sincerest apologies to those of you who purchased tickets in the hopes of seeing Soilwork. We're as disappointed about these past few weeks' mishaps as you are, and we promise to do everything in our power to make this up to you as soon as we can.
Here the complete list of shows:
September 12 - Unholy Brutal Fest IV @ Le Korigan - FRANCE
September 13 - Monthly Assault @ Industrie 45 - SWITZERLAND
September 14 - Frankfurt @ Elfer Club - GERMANY
September 15 - Leipzig @ 4Rooms - GERMANY

Initially forged in 2009 as the side project of FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE members Francesco Paoli and Paolo Rossi and now featuring the updated lineup of vocalist Luigi Valenti, guitarist Stefano Rossi Ciucci, bassist Riccardo Rogari and drummer Giacomo Torti, BLOODTRUTH heaves forth a sonic fire ball of speed, brutality and unadulterated hate. Fusing the cryptic atmosphere of early ‘90s death metal and evocative Gregorian chant, representing the band’s homeland and history, with methodical technicality, BLOODTRUTH are ceaseless in their ear-lacerating capabilities.
Following their two-track promo released in 2012, BLOODTRUTH is ready to release their debut full-length album, Obedience. Engineered by Francesco Paoli and Cristiano Trionfera (both of Fleshgod Apocalypse) at Sonic Hammer Studios, then mixed and mastered by Italian death metal producer and legend Stefano Morabito of 16th Cellars Studios (Hour of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Eyeconoclast, Unfanthomable Ruination, Inherit Disease), the ten tracks on Obedience tap into a wealth of unadulterated lyrical hatred released through incinerating waves of limb-removing, guttural metal. Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (Exodus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Kataklysm) created some of his most intense artwork for the release, the perfect summary of the level of extreme comprising Obedience.
A visual teaser for Obedience has been released; view it below.
Obedience Track List:
1. Subvenite (Intro)
2. Surrounded By Blind Bigots
3. Throes Of Death
4. Suppurating Of Deception
5. Coerced To Serve
6. Quench Your Thirst
7. Summoning The Heretics
9. March Of The Fools
Unique Leader will unload Obedience on September 16th, 2014.
ITP V.014 UPDATE: ITP is working on REVIEWS and METAL NEWS FEATURES, as the later will be posted (MAYBE) in early AUGUST 2014, so hold your horses metal warriors.
Soo, this week's ITP V.014 brought to you via the spelling error "R", that's WARDRUNA and MACABRE, without and with a "R", GRRRRRR.
My (anonymous) source for the DEICIDE FALL 2014 NORTH AMERICAN tour, may have "rumored" WRONG, as he is right 80% of the time, as it is more likely the EUROPEAN tour announced via MASSIVE BOOKING yesterday as MARDUK has had previous troubles getting into the USA, we'll see, we can only dream, and I'll keep all updated.
ITP V.014 is working on a custom mobile app, to debut soon.
So you think ITP slacked and missed some news stories this week. NO, as I'm saving some news for ITP METAL NEWS FEATURES NOTES FROM THE EXTREME METAL UNDERGROUND, DAMNED IN BLACK METAL (BLACK METAL NEWS), HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS).
..Also, ITP is avoiding the predictable mall core or trend crap out there breaking new bands instead.
So, for the fourth consecutive year in row, ITP has posted over 1, 000 journals entries and counting.
To celebrate ITP's (belated) 10th anniversary, 1 million hits (since OCTOBER of 2008) on BLOGSPOT, over 7, 000 posts, and 4 years of over 1, 000 posts: Take this NEW ITP V.014 WIDGET (will situate art work soon) , and SPREAD IT UP ALL IN YOUR TWITTER, BLOGGER, MYSPACE, FACEBOOK and SOCIAL NETWORKS!!
ITP V.014 has joined a new syndicate/app, add ITP V.014 at NETVIBES, ITP V.014 will be added to more syndicates soon.
ITP V.014 NETVIBES
If ITP V.014 and blog readers have been wondering about the state of TECHNORATI, ITP's very FIRST syndicate (since 2007), TECHNORATI has changed format to straight up advertising as all blogs are gone as TECHNORATI no longer supports bloggers.
TECHNORATI went down briefly in 2009 (?) to come back not long after.
This is just the progression (or regression depending on how you look at it) of TECHNORATI, ITP is not being singled out disproportionately, as obviously ITP is moved on to other, more socially networked syndicates.
Thank you TECHNORATI ITP readers as ITP reached the top 100 in HOCKEY (shrugs), top 700- 1, 000-2000 in music and top 700, 500, 2,000 in other music, art and entertainment categories.
R.I.P. to TECHNORATI
GOOGLE + Personal ITP V.014 ACCOUNT (estimated hits since 2012 in 2 years): 900,075 views CHECK OUT THIS ARTICLE ON THE SHOCKING RE-FORMATTING OF TECHNORATI:
MOTIVATION REGARDING ITP V.014 GRAPHIC RE-DESIGN AND NEW TEMPLATE?
In other news, ITP's author accidently deleted all of the links on the right hand side of ITP, OOOPS, as this is due to concentration, or lack there of, regarding living in a fucked up environment of constant noise (FUCK YOU )..
THE GOOD NEWS, I have the (ITP) links saved somewhere else, and can put post them back up at a later time. However, reposting ITP LINKS won't happen for a while, perhaps end of summer 2014 depending on time and circumstances.
THE OTHER GOOD NEWS: Now, with in the blunder of deleting ITP LINKS some positive can come out of the negative: I can NOW perhaps redesign ITP regarding graphic design with a new template, as having to repost the links and save and repost gadgets and a few other html blah, blah, is exactly what kept me from doing it in the first place. It's time, as I've been wanting to do this for a while, in order of priority.
Perhaps by the fall or end of 2014, expect a complete ITP GRAPHIC REDESIGN with a new template.
I've even contemplated turning ITP into a full WEBZINE as I would need a small staff of reliable minions, perhaps in the next year or two.
YES, ITP V.014 is working on occasionally bringing back the METAL NEWS FEATURE "THE ART OF DANCE", revamped for 2014 as a lot of metal festivals now have their own YOU TUBE channel, as ITP needs mosh pit footage.
The comeback of ITP V.014 NOTES FROM THE EXTREME METAL UNDERGROUND PART ONE (DEATH METAL, GRIND and THRASH METAL NEWS) MIGHT be posted by SUMMER EARLY AUGUST of 2014.
It's coming, for real, I'm working on it, and I'm also a very good procrastinator when I have writer's block.
DAMNED IN BLACK METAL (BLACK METAL NEWS), HUMANITY IS DOOMED (DOOM METAL NEWS) will be posted in SUMMER (AUGUST) 2014 depending on time and circumstances and will include 2014 INTERNATIONAL TOUR DATES. Also, ITP V.014 will feature the COMEBACK of ITP UNCOVERED, as something to look forward to (re-vamped version) in the new year of 2014.
A couple of points of reference as we enter into 2014 and ITP V.014.
ITP V.014 GOOGLE + now has a NEW CUSTOM URL: https://plus.google.com/+Spak-individualthoughtpatternsBlogspot/posts
ITP V.014's author is STILL working on ( a "work in progress" to be re-named ITP V.014) a NEW MYSPACE PROFILE, so re-add me (ITP V.014) after the old to new MYSPACE (as I forgot to convert until now) apocalypse:
To kick off 2014, ITP V.014 is sporting a brand new logo as I'm also re-sizing the logos. Feel FREE to take, steal and POST the NEW ITP V.014 LOGO and leak it all up in your social networks, website ect.
ITP V.014 NEW LOGO HTML CODES will be available from yours truly on ITP's author's FACEBOOK.
ITP V.013 author REALLY APPRECIATES the support of readers world wide. With a noticeable increase of readers and hits (1, 000-2,000 hits per day) YOU make it worth it!
As ITP stated last week, ITP REVIEWS (*TEXT) and NEW FEATURES depends upon TIME, and all ITP REVIEWS, (a month after posting, sans the MUSIC) will be licensed CREATIVE COMMONS from now on.
BTW, CREATIVE COMMONS does not waive an artists or writers rights to copy write, I could and maybe will copy write ITP V.09-V.013 reviews ect. as CREATIVE COMMONS modifies copyright, under flexibility, for sharing info.

Richmond, Virginia based metal legends GWAR have been confirmed for RIOT FEST 2014, set to take place 9/12/2014 CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, HUMBOLDT PARK as perhaps the band will rotate instruments. Also, GWAR have confirmed THE MISFITS and JELLO BIAFRA for the Dave Brockie Memorial/ GWAR-B-Q and have announced the festivals running order as GWAR B-Q, is set to take place 8/16/2014 Hadad's Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike, Richmond, VA 23231).
Dave Brockie (GWAR vocalist) CAUSE OF DEATH: ACCIDENTAL HEROIN OVERDOSE (acute heroin toxicity). Many asking whom will fill in for late GWAR vocalist frontman DAVE BROCKIE? Will GWAR continue on after DAVE BROCKIE's DEATH? GWAR main man DAVE BROCKIE's (AKA ODERUS URUNGUS) was being investigated by Richmond, Virginia police as drug related. DAVE BROCKIE (AKA: ODERUS URUNGUS) vocalist of GWAR was found DEAD Sunday 3/23/2014 at 50. GWAR guitarist CORY SMOOT (FLATTUS MAXIMUS) passed away on the bands tour bus in 2011. GWAR B-Q, set for 8/16/2014 @ HADAD's LAKE, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA will GO ON as planned with a public memorial for DAVE BROCKIE (AKA: ODERUS URUNGUS) set to take place 8/15/2014 (@ HADAD's LAKE, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA) as the show features BODY COUNT, HATEBREED, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and more. GWAR have been an active band since the late 80's, as the band concept was started by Virginia University college art students. GWAR unleashed "BATTLE MAXIMUS" 9/17/2013 via METAL BLADE RECORDS.
FROM GWAR: GWAR will play Friday September 12th at Chicago's Riot Fest. GWAR commands you to get your tickets at http://www.ticketfly.com/venue/4049-humboldt-park/ Horror business is about to pick up! The MISFITS have been revealed as the special secret guest for the 5th Annual GWAR B-Q! GWAR's festival of meat, music and mayhem will take place on Saturday August 16th at Hadad's Lake (7900 Osborne Turnpike, Richmond, VA 23231). Led by famous monster Jerry Only, the MISFITS have been carving their own bloody path through punk and metal since 1977.
Jerry Only joins an impressive roster of talent participating in the VIP Celebrity Meet & Meat. These include Jackass/Viva La Bam star Bam Margera, LA Ink's Amy Nicoletto, Body Count's Ice-T, Hatebreed featuring Jamey Jasta, punk rock legend Tesco Vee of the Meatmen and of course all of GWAR – including returning Scumdogs Slymenstra Hymen, Sleazy P. Martini and Sexecutioner! Holders of VIP tickets – which sold out at warp speed – are good to go for this exclusive event. Everyone else is a sad slave.
GWAR demands that all attend the Dave Brockie Memorial one day before the GWAR B-Q. Fans, friends and possibly protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church will gather from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Friday, August 15 at Hadad's Lake. We can now announce that Jello Biafra – punk icon, Dead Kennedys front man and actor in GWAR’s long-form video Skulhedface – will serve as the memorial’s master of ceremonies. Tribute will be paid to both Brockie and Oderus Urungus, as the Scumdog soldier will receive a Viking funeral set ablaze upon the SS Boat. Show up and bid Oderus farewell as he travels to Valhalla and beyond!
The 5th Annual GWAR B-Q opens the floodgates at 10:00am, and the first bands will rage on the GWAR-B-Q's two stages starting at 10:35am. The first 100 people to arrive will get in first. Get there early, because each explosive act has been handpicked as an awesome complement to molten sun and meat sandwiches! GWAR cares not that you missed the act you wanted to see. So, start your next binge at 10:00am, in true Bohab fashion.
BUT WAIT! Before you meet your untimely demise at the cannibalistic bloody orgy of this year’s GWAR B-Q, your secured entry depends on these items.
PRINT YOUR E-TICKET CONFIRMATION PAGE! NO TICKET! NO ENTRY!
NO PETS! (Don’t leave your pet in the car, asshole!)
BACKPACKS AND COOLERS WILL BE CHECKED BY SECURITY! PARKING IS LIMITED!
CARPOOL, SKATEBOARD, BIKE, BUS OR PARACHUTE!
SINGLE-OCCUPANT CARS WILL BE TURNED AWAY AT THE GATE!
Buses will be shuttling attendees to/from the VCU campus, downtown Richmond, airport hotels and annex parking lots. And speaking of lodging, rooms are still available at one of the five special-discount hotels. All this information and more can be found at http://gwarbq.com/crashing-out.
The Spew-O-Lympics is currently taking applications for potential contestants, because everyone likes to laugh at idiots sacrificing their health and dignity for fame and fortune. Can you topple reigning champion "Gold Member?" It's going to be hard. Find out how to enter, as well info on other GWAR B-Q events, atgwarbq.com/events-2.
Another spectacle returning to the GWAR B-Q is the skate park. Some will be brave enough to tackle the Rolling Wheels of Death, and some may live to tell the tale. Even you posers will be able to purchase a limited edition 5th Annual GWAR B-Q skateboard. Smack it on your skull and make up a story about how you ate it trying an ollie 360 heel flip.
Plenty of the new GWAR Beer, Killsner, will be on hand at the GWAR B-Q; but you don’t have to wait until then to pour some down your gullet. Brown Distributing expects to have it stocked in area stores and bars by early August. Proactive bohabs can order it online from Lueken’s Liquors atluekensliquors.com/beer/cigar-city-gwar-4pk-12oz. And finally, GWAR Beer brewer Cigar City Brewing is organizing a special Killsner tasting at their Tampa Florida stronghold. Tampa: It’s not just for strippers anymore! Checkwww.cigarcitybrewing.com for more information on the GWAR beer tasting event from Cigar City.
To ensure GWAR has all vices covered, the premium handmade CiGWAR is almost ready to be held in your sweaty, hairy palm. They’re being produced by the world-famous Tajuaje Cigars and its owner Pete Johnson – a company known for handmade, premium Nicaraguan tobacco cigars. Get them at the GWAR B-Q or at Richmond-area Havana Connections locations (11616 Broad Street and 8801-E Three Chopt Road in RVA; 11645 Midlothian Turnpike and 6181 Harbourside Center Loop in Midlothian; and 4920 Courthouse Street in Williamsburg).
JiZMak was blown away by the CiGWAR, saying, “It’s the second best thing I’ve ever had in my mouth!”
Don't forget the bloody bookends to the insanity: the B4BQ and the GWafter Party! The B4BQ has a quartet of killer bands, including headliner The Black Dahlia Murder. Don’t miss the action Friday, August 15th at 7:00pm at The Broadberry (2729 W. Broad Street, Richmond VA 23220). Get your tickets at thebroadberry.com/. VIP Premium Ticket holders get in FREE. Don’t forget to bring your printed e-ticket to the door for FREE admittance or else pony up your burger flippin’ bucks for entry.
The GWafter Party is a good goal to shoot for. How many limbs will you have left after your day at Hadad's Lake? Enough to drag yourself to Bandito's Burrito Lounge (2905 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, VA 23221) directly after the GWAR B-Q on the night of Saturday, August 16th? That remains to be seen. But if you do, you'll get to eat tacos and hear music by Mudd Helmut, Polkadot Cadaver and Creep-A-Zoids.
Of course, none of the majesty and depravity of this year’s GBQ would be possible without our key sponsors: Ring Dog Rescue, Mt. Baker Vapor, Cigar City Brewing, Brown Distributing, Monster Energy Drink, Genesee Cream Ale, Blakhart Guitars Guitar Center and Metal Insider.
"GWAR demands that all attend the Dave Brockie Memorial one day before the GWAR B-Q.

Via Earsplit PR: "In the wake of their recent and first full-on invasion of North America, revolutionary New Zealand death metal trio, ULCERATE, will return to the European continent this Fall.
ULCERATE today issues their warning that the Confronting Entropy European Tour MMXIV has been declared, the excursion bringing the band back to Europe on a massive trek set to run from November 21st through December 14th. Continuing to tour in support of their worldwide-acclaimed third full-length, Vermis, released in September through Relapse Records, on the upcoming twenty-four city raid ULCERATE will be paired with Spanish sci-fi death metal cult, Wormed, also supported by Gigan, Solace of Requiem and one more act to be confirmed. Additional info on this venture will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Confronting Entropy European Tour MMXIV follows ULCERATE’s previous runs in support of their acclaimed new album, most recently their Vermis North America MMXIV Tour which engulfed most of the month of May and led the band to one of the main indoor slots at this year’s Maryland Deathfest. While Vermis is an incredibly extreme, cerebral and devastatingly creative body of work in its own right, the band performs the new songs with unbelievable strength and seamless professionalism, the mere thee-piece lineup mesmerizing and devastating audiences with a relentless tsunami of cutting-edge, technical and overall supremely ominous attack."

ITP V.013/V.014 REVIEWS ARE BACK, HOWEVER ITP WILL NOT REVIEW NOR POST PROMOTION OF RELAPSE RECORDS ARTISTS NOR RELEASES, MY CHOICE, THEIR LOSS.
ITP is independent and objective of record labels.
ITP V.09-ITP-V.014 REVIEWS IS NOT MEANT TO BE SUBSTITUTE
FOR BUYING A RELEASE, IF YOU LIKE BUY, CD's AS BEER COASTERS CAN BE USEFUL.
"Advertising is legalized lying"-HG WELLS
BTW, and I've been wanting to, but shouldn't have to say this, for pro censorship retards in denial of their own baggage: FUCK OFF!!!
When ITP writes and posts ITP REVIEWS, NOT A FUCK WAS GIVEN ABOUT SOME RECORD LABELS OPINION. ITP's author was a Journalism major at SUNY, as I make a distinction between PR (Public Relations), Advertising and an objective third party opinion.
Consumers have a RIGHT to an opinion on the products they buy, it's a consumer RIGHT, anything else would be undemocratic and censorship. Other wise, if those in the entertainment industry can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen, they have no right to perform nor release music publically.
When I read a consumer report or review, I expect an independent third party opinion, not a record labels or corporations assessment of their own artists as record labels can NOT be objective about their own artists or bands. It's amazing how under educated and ignorant, SHEEPLE (people) can be. Even alot of metal zines accept advertising from labels and you wonder how objective they can really be.
