EAST MEETS WEST IN NORTH AMERICA: The legendary Metallica, alongside Lamb of God, have scheduled a North American tour this coming fall/winter. Added to the bill is France's Gojira, who will be opening the shows between mid-September and mid-October. Afterward, the band will drop off and allow Denmark's Volbeat to take the reins as the opening slot for the duration of tour. It's also been announced that another band will take Lamb of God's slot as it will not be on the run during the month of December.

MALICIOUS ON THE ROAD: Prosthetic's Through The Eyes Of The Dead are buckled down and recording but this hasn't stopped the guys from getting back on the road. Releasing some upcoming show dates, fans can expect to see the band perform on the East Coast with Armor for the Broken as well as Autumn Black and Dr. Acula in mid-August.

HIM? GOD FORBID!: With the recent departure of God Forbid guitarist Dallas Coyle, the band have chosen to recruit the services of ex-Himsa guitarist Matt Wicklund for their run on this year's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Tour. Additionally, on off-dates of the tour, the band has begun to confirm some shows between mid-July to the beginning of August.
