The following message has been issued on the Fear Factory website: "Fear Factory fans can be a part of selecting the set list for the band's headlining tour this fall, Machines At War, featuring Suffocation, Hypocrisy, and Decapitated. You can vote for your favorite songs to be played by clicking here.

The new supergoup featuring Tommy Lee (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Jason Newsted (VOIVOD, ex-METALLICA), Gilby Clarke (ex-GUNS N' ROSES) and now vocalist Lukas Rossi (winner of Rock Star: Supernova) have renamed themselves ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA after the original California band SUPERNOVA filed and won a lawsuit over the name. Rock Star Supernova will release their debut album on November 21st.

The Lacuna Coil, 36 Crazyfists, Soil tour that was scheduled for November has been officially postponed. No further details are currently available.

Ex-Skid Row singer, Sebastian Bach is confirmed to open up Guns N' Roses' shows in San Francisco this month. The shows are scheduled for the 20th and the 21st at The Warfield.

According to KISSOnline, Paul Stanley's backing band for the upcoming "Live To Win Tour" will be the House Band from the CBS TV Show, Rock Star. The band appeared on the first season of the show - Rock Star: INXS, as well as this year's Rock Star: SUPERNOVA. Band members are: Paul Mirkovich (keyboards), Jim McGorman (guitar), Rafael Moreira (lead guitar), Nate Morton (drums) and Sasha Krivstov (bass).

Twisted Sister's cover version of 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' has been posted online at the band's official MySpace page here. The track is part of the band's holiday CD, A Twisted Christmas, which is due October 17th. The album features the following tracklisting: 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas', 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful', 'White Christmas', 'I'll Be Home For Christmas' (featuring Lita Ford), 'Silver Bells', 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause', 'Let It Snow', 'Deck the Halls', 'The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)', and 'Heavy Metal Christmas (The Twelve Days of Christmas).

According to Deep-Purple.net, the second of three shows from Rainbow's September 1976 tour of Germany, newly mixed from the multi-tracks, is nearing release, and follows the pattern set by Cologne. The site adds: "From our research we believe only one track from this particular gig has ever been issued before (Catch The Rainbow on the old Connoisseur title Live In Germany). The show dates from September 27th, 1976, and features the regular set-list from that tour: 'Kill The King', 'Mistreated', 'Sixteenth Century Greensleeves', 'Catch The Rainbow', 'Man On The Silver Mountain', 'Stargazer', 'Still I'm Sad. There was no encore for this particular night.

Former Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy has announced more details on the release schedule of his new album via Top Fuel Records. In November/December, Arcade's Alive: Unfinished Business will be released. It will be a CD/DVD package featuring footage of Arcade recording sessions for the self-titled debut and follow-up A2, photo shoots, live concerts in Japan and U.S. tours with Bon Jovi from 1993, backstage, etc. In December/January 2007, the Stephen Pearcy DVD/CD Anthology will be issued. Also on tap is the CD release of Stephen Pearcy - Live in Vegas: Live 2005. Finally, a DVD version of Stripped - Acoustic Live On Sunset (same as the VH1 show DVD) is due out in December/January 2007.

Robert Goudie offers this interesting bit of news from Odin's performance at Palladinos in Southern California: For their encore, Odin fans may have noticed that Jeff Duncan was playing his old Odin guitar (the one with the drawing of Odin on the throne and that matches the album cover). Jeff thought the guitar was long gone and had sold the guitar years ago after Odin's demise. In a remarkable coincidence, Joel Ellis, guitarist for The Cauze (the opening band that played right before Odin) is the current owner of Jeff Duncan's old Odin guitar. Joel contacted Jeff ahead of Saturday's show and let him know that he had the guitar. Jeff was completely shocked. They arranged to get the guitar to Jeff so he could play it Saturday night.
