BOLT THROWER have issued the following update: "For those of you living in Holland, Germany and Belgium, you will get the chance to see BOLT THROWER live soon, as there are a few select shows lined up. The confirmed shows are: August 7th – Atak in Enschede, Netherlands. This is our second home, and we’ve played at Atak on every tour for the last 18 years. Sadly, the club will be closing down this month and they will be moving to a new building in the autumn. So we were chuffed when they contacted us and offered to re-open for one night, so we can say farewell to this cult club and be the last band to ever play there. We decided that the tickets will be free and we will be informing you soon on the lineup and how to get tickets. August 8th – Party.San Festival in Bad Berka, Germany. As headliner we will play a longer set than usual, so expect to hear a lot of songs we haven’t played for a while. August 9th – Hof ter Lo in Antwerp, Belgium. For this show we will be joined by the best and upcoming bands from the Benelux. The confirmed support bands are: GOD DETHRONED, BORN FROM PAIN, THE SETUP and ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK. Tickets are 11 Euros."
CANNIBAL CORPSE has been busy working on the follow-up to 2006’s "Kill" album. The new record isn’t expected until the fall or winter of 08/09 so until then fans will be able to get their CANNIBAL fix with the bands first-ever career retrospective 3-disc DVD, "Centuries Of Torment: The First 20 Years". CANNIBAL CORPSE themselves have posted a teaser for the DVD – you can check it out here. "Centuries Of Torment: The First 20 Years" contains live and rare footage, interviews with members past and present and loads of bonus material. It was directed and produced by Denise Korycki, has a running time of 7 hours and 20 minutes (!!) and it will be released on July 11, 2008 (GER / A / SWI / I), July 15, 2008 (rest of Europe). www.cannibalcorpse.net
