We at the loud community need to help save Amen!
They have been on the LOUD show in the past and man do they know how to rock!
The Black Halos were on the Snow Jam tour and were a wicked punk band.. The guitarist left the band later that year and joined Amen.
This caused The Black Halos to spilt...
Now if Amen is not able to continue than both bands will be gone... and for no good reason!

If you like Amen.. or if you hate Amen.. please sign the Petition for the Amen fans!
Wouldn't you want them to do it for your favorite band?

Right now the have 649 Total Signatures...

The Story on whats going down:
The most volatile and amazing punk/metal band in the world today, 'Amen', is in jeopardy. Upon the recent completion of their 3rd (and as of yet, unreleased) album, the band 'Amen' have come to a dead end.
Having invested a sum of $200,000 into the recording (enough material to fill nearly three albums) Virgin Records told them that the album would not be released by them due to the band not being a 'commercial enough proposition to pursue'.
Virgin then further insisted that the band could leave the label, but could not take the recorded material with them, because of the fact they had paid to produce said album. In order to gain back the recorded material, they said the band would have to pay back the recording cost.

The Problem is, the band does not have the money in order to pay Virgin for the material. Due to significant delay in the album's release, the band have had no money coming in for months.
Amen have a record ready to release, but cant release it until they come up with the money Virgin is asking for.

This problem is jeopardising the future of the band, and frontman 'Casey Chaos' has even gone as far as saying that 'its a mess that could quite easily force the band to call it a day.'

I know I, and many other people, do not want to see one of the greatest bands in the world today to be forced to part ways, only because of a money hungry record label.
Not only will it mean the death of 'Amen' its also another sign that the worlds music industry is destroying creativity and only cares about record sales and not real innovation or talent.
Therefore Id like to send a wake up message to 'Virgin Recordings' tosay that by releasing this album and taking the band back into the fold, they will be making a lot of people very happy and also showing that creativity and innovation is as important to them as record sales.

Thanks for your time,

Max Harper.

Long Live Amen...

The album is expected out late this summer / early this fall through Jive/Zomba and the band are expected to hit the road in support of it in the coming months, possibly alongside Korn this summer.

Damned Demons?
It is rumored that The Damned will be dropping off of the Demon Speeding Tour, which features Rob Zombie and Sinisstar, shortly. At present, it is expected that both of the remaining bands on the bill will perform longer sets to make up for the vacant slot.

Bucket Truck member leaves band/Sum41/Newfoundland, and MuchMusic.

Mar. 18th, 2002 | 04:35 pm
posted by: immorak in loud


I'm sitting here at my computer to send you another update on Bucket Truck a
little shaken' from a weekend of hard partying in PEI. We played an all ages
show followed by a killer bar gig in Charlottetown at Melons - another one of
our "homes away from home". I'd like to thank all you punk-freaks in PEI for
making our third show at Melons just as crazy as the others, complete with a
little frontal nudity, a whole lot of spilt beer, and an after-hours party that
went until well into Sunday morning (I hate trying to sleep after the sun is up

While in PEI we found out that the bar, Melons, had been shut down for a week by
the liquor commission due to our last show there back in December - it appears
as though there is a higher code of ethics in PEI and bucket truck's usual rude
and crude live show too much for them. Melons was given seven violations after a
video tape of our performance was reviewed in court, ending in the bar being
forced to close it's doors for over a week. Wow. Needless to say, we didn't tone
our show down one bit last Saturday night - see you again soon Charlottetown!

In other show news:

March 30th (Saturday), we'll be back in Halifax at The Marquee with our good
friends King Benny. I encourage everyone who is a fan of extreme energy infused
heavy tones to come out early to see the KB in action. Halifax has a late crowd,
but you're only cheating yourself by missing these guys. In the words of Tony
the Tiger, They're Grrrrreat!

We're back in Newfoundland for JUNO weekend. Check out Bucket Truck opening for
SUM41 at the Delta in St. John's on Friday, April 12th. Then April 13th we have
an amazing all ages event set up called RED LIQUORICE which will feature Bucket
Truck with turn-table phenomenon Buck65 and Halifax punk-rockers Shyne Factory.
That show starts at 4PM and will be followed later that evening by a bar show at
10:30PM. Both shows are at Calio's on Water Street in St. John's. Visit Buck65
and Shyne Factory's websites(www.buck65.com and www.shynefactory.com) to check
out their MP3s and videos - this is going to be one all star cast. Calio's only
holds about 200 people so show up early to ensure we get to see you there.


You're all doing a great job helping us get our video played, it has popped up
on EdgeTV, YTV's ChartAttack, MuchMusic and MuchLoud so far and we heard
rumblings this week that it will probably surface on MTV very soon. However,
with all this play, we're still hearing that a lot of you haven't seen it yet...
jump on over to www.muchmusic.com and go right to the bottom of their mainpage.
See the VIDEO VAULT link with our name next to it? Just click on that and you
will be whisped away to a magical place where you can see NO OTHER WAY in your
RealPlayer. Tell your friends - and please don't stop requesting NO OTHER WAY on
radio and TV, if you stop requesting it, they'll stop playing it, and no one
wants that. :^)

And finally, I've got some kind of bad news.

I have decided to leave Bucket Truck. As one of the founding members and the
bass player for six years, this was not an easy decision to say the least. Great
things are happening with Bucket Truck every day, I'm very excited by the band's
new successes and proud of everything we've accomplished to date. These guys are
my best friends, and this band has been my life, and in many ways, will continue
to be.

Just to squash any rumours before they start - Bucket Truck is NOT breaking up.
I can't be more clear about that. The guys have been auditioning new bass
players (if you're interested, and a kick ass bass player, send Mike Rizkalla an
email - mike.rizkalla@collideascope.com), news on who to be announced at a later
date. In the meantime, I'm going to continue playing with them until the time
when I pass the baton to the new guy/gal.

"The road" - that is the reason I'm leaving the band (I know that was going to
be your next question). We're all still great friends, so don't think we had a
big fight or anything stupid like that. I'm just not cut out for the touring
lifestyle - spending three or four weeks a year in the van has been great. But
Bucket Truck's new successes are going to require the band to get out to see you
all much more frequently, they're going to start touring a lot more - which is
great, no longer will you have to wait months and months between shows. I like
seeing everybody, I like playing for you all, but it's everything in between,
that 'the road' entails, that I'm no good at.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a line
(judhaynes@hotmail.com). I hope I'll see all you Halifax folks at the Marquee on
the 30th and I'll be in Newfoundland April 12th and 13th for those concerts -
they will, more than likely, be my last Bucket Truck shows in Newfoundland, so
please come out.

Talk to you soon,

Jud - bucket truck

Rob Zombie Gets 'R' Rating For "House Of 1,000 Corpses"

Mar. 18th, 2002 | 05:19 pm
posted by: witchmooon in loud

Rob Zombie's much-delayed horror flick "House Of 1,000 Corpses" will soon see the light of day. After spending 7 months in the MPAA, and making many cuts and changes to the film, "House Of 1,000 Corpses" finally received an R rating. No word yet on a release date or distributor, but expect news soon. The film was originally dropped from distribution by Universal Pictures after receiving an NC-17 rating and being deemed too obscene.
