eleven Slow fingers
finger eleven recently entered Metalworks Studios over the holiday season to record a new track entitled, "Slow Chemical", with producer David Schiffman (System Of A Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers). The song is set to show up on an upcoming WWF Compilation CD expected out in mid March and will also be used in a promotion surrounding WWF wrestler Kane. In the meantime, the band have been continuing work on writing new material for their next outing, while band guitarists James Black and Rick Jackett have also been working on producing a new demo by Canadian up and comers, Slurpymundane, which they hope to complete late this month.
What happened to Type O Negative doing Kane's music? WTF?

Disturbing The Queen
Disturbed frontman David Draiman recently hit a Los Angeles, CA area studio to record vocals for a track composed by Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and Richard Gibbs, for the upcoming "Queen Of The Damned" Soundtrack, which is due out in stores on February 19th. Davis originally tracked the vocals for the material in the film itself, but due to record company problems, was not allowed to have his vocals appear on the soundtrack versions. As a result, it seems as though a few different frontmen, possibly Chester Bennington of Linkin Park and Wayne Static of Static-X, will also be brought in to lay down vocals for the soundtrack versions of the 5 different songs created for the film, though the originals, complete with Davis's vocals, are still expected to appear in the film itself. In other Disturbed news, both Fuzz and Danny from the band will be at the N.A.M.M. Guitar Convention this week and the group are still hard at work writing material for their next album, which they plan to hit the studio in early March to begin recording with producer Johnny K. (Machine Head, SOiL). Tentative track titles include:
I hope that the Davis tracks in the movie make it to the net!...
This also seems liek it could be a very kick ass soundtrack!

Korn Park In Mexico

March 02nd Mexico City, MEX - Foro Sol (Feat. Linkin Park)

March 11th S�o Paulo, Brazil - Credicard Hall
March 12th S�o Paulo, Brazil - Credicard Hall
The groups forthcoming and as of yet untitled new album is currently slated for a presently unannounced May release.
May release? WHATS UP WITH THAT?

The recently tracked electric version of Mad At Gravity's song, "Walk Away", will be featured on the SnoCore New Music Sampler CD, which will be passed out at SnoCore shows during the tours run. Also included on the disc will be tracks from the Dilated Peoples, OTEP, Finch, Custom and more.

However, the rest of the group took to the stage during the end of 40 Below Summer's set and performed a rendition of their track, "A Violent Reaction", with 40 Below Summer vocalist Max Illidge handling the vocal duties. During the performance, 40 Below Summer also performed a new track which they recently wrote entitled, "A Season In Hell".

SnapCore? Pt.2
Despite being previously advertised for the tour by various venues, it now seems as though Local H will not be joining the upcoming SnoCore Rock trek with Alien Ant Farm, Fenix TX and Glassjaw. Though an official statement has yet to be released on who will be the final act on the bill, it looks as though Snapcase will now not be performing either, as the band themselves have confirmed that they were offered the tour, but were forced to decline as a result of the dates conflicting with their upcoming studio time. At present, it now seems as though Earshot will be performing on the tour in their place, possibly rotating a leg of dates with Adema. Though any official word has yet to come down on the matter.

Durst Attacked
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was attacked by a cream pie during the Oregon leg of the Bizkit's U.S. auditions for the world's "illest guitar player." An 18-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct and five counts of harassment as a result of the incident. After he decked Durst with a pie, two of the band's bodyguards helped detain the culprit who was then handcuffed. Durst later signed his forehead and drew an X on his cheek with a marker after the whole thing went down.
That made me laugh!
Whats up with the X on his cheek crap?

Britney Upset With Justin
In an interview with Cosmo, Britney Spears says she was "devastated" when she saw Justin Timberlake make out with another girl in *NSYNC's "Gone" video. "You could have just taken a knife and stabbed me," she says. Umm, just one thing, Britney: Remember that "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know" video where you're makin' out and rolling around with some other guy? Has Justin seen that clip? Apparently, the pop princess was so upset when she saw the "Gone" video that she stormed into a bathroom and didn't speak to anyone for a while. Eventually, the two talked it over and decided that the best solution was for her not to watch videos that upset her.
WTF? its a pop video! Do you hear him bitching about her music video sex? Get a life Britney!
