HAPPY NEW YEAR! Suidical Tendencies are set to release their first ever DVD in Spring 2007. It will include the full live performance recorded at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA on Oct 29, 2005 filled with bonus material.

Uli John Roth (ex-SCORPIONS) will present a revolutionary new invention at the 2007 NAMM Music trade fair in Anaheim, California in January. He has recently come across a new self-tuning guitar technology, which was developed in Hamburg, Germany by Christopher Adams. Uli was so intrigued and fascinated by this landmark invention that he had it installed on his favourite white Fender Stratocaster guitar last week. The auto-tune technology is currently only geared for six-string Strat-or Gibson-type guitars, but Chris Adams has promised to extend the system for his seven-string Sky Guitars in the near future.

Timo Tolkki of Stratovarious has issued this report on his composition of a rock opera: "Saana-Warrior Of Light ... is a work in progress. For two years I have had this idea in my head and it won´t leave me be. It will be a Rock Opera, but not in a sense that many of the records using 'rock or metal opera' are. All the singers in this are carefully chosen and I have been auditioning singers already six months. So it´s not just that I invite some famous names to sing something. The character that sings the part really has to fit and feel the meaning of the music and lyrics. I have spent quite some time with the top candidates to get to know them personally. This is very important when I will write the music. And I prefer them to be new talents. During X-mas I have been writing the story and it just pours out of me. I am writing it in Finnish, but I will translate it in English after it´s ready. I have been negotiating with several record companies about this release and the interest has been very good. There will be a press release in a bout a month and a website dedicated for this project. Then the cast will be revealed as well. There have been some rumours about Tarja Turunen (ex-Nightwish) playing the main role but those are untrue. Although I first wanted a Finnish person for the main role, the story has evolved so much that it is not necessary anymore. And last but not least, I want to wish all of you, who hopefully survived the X-mas madness, a happy and fulfilling 2007. May your dreams come true!!"

In support of US Troops and recent events in Baghdad, Reverend has uploaded their 1992 live version of B.O.B. - Butcher of Baghdad, to their MySpace site. "We have recieved quite a few requests for us to do this and with the recent events of this past weekend in Baghdad, we felt it was the right time," stated Brian Keith, Reverend Manager. The song can be heard and downloaded at Reverend's MySpace site, www.myspace.com/reverendmetal.

Lawyers representing more than 300 people who lost loved ones or who were injured in the devastating fire that swept a Rhode Island nightclub nearly four years ago during a Great White concert, have agreed to hire a nationally recognized specialist in conflict resolution as a first step toward trying to settle dozens of civil lawsuits. The suits have been filed against the owners of the nightclub and nearly 100 others whom the lawyers allege played a role in the tragedy.

Black Label Society bassist John JD DeServio is now accepting music students in the New Jersey area. Specializing in music theory for all instruments. Serious inquiries only can be made through JD's MySpace Site.
