Hváll wrote us "This weekend we were gathered in the good old ”Fjøsen” (our rehearsal place from the Ulcus & Windir days). It was a great atmosphere to rehearse there again, and especially with all the stuff we are working with at the moment, everything from new line up, new album and the upcoming special shows."

About the shows with a special guest: "We have been rehearsing on a special live set. We will do 3 selected shows this spring where we will be joined by a special guest for a few extra songs. The special guest is Vegard Bakken, brother of Terje Valfar Bakken. This will be full Vreid concerts plus that we will play a couple of Windir songs with Vegard doing the vocals on these songs."

"This is something we have considered for quite some time. The loss of our brother & closest friend back in 2004 is something that has had a major impact on our lives, and is always affecting us both as persons and musicians. We have strong relationship with Vegard, and the music & spirit of Windir is something that unify us. We all grew up together and there is a bond between us, Vegard & Terje that never will be broken."

The shows will take place at:

29th of April: W2, De Bosch, Netherlands
30th of April: Ragnarök festival, Kreuth, Germany
01st of May: Fiesta Pagana,Schmerikon, Switzerland

"During the last 6 years we have done more than 200 shows around the world with Vreid, and met so many people with a passionate relationship to Vreid & Windir, this of course has inspired us a lot. So bringing Vegard in, and doing a few songs together is something we are sure will please a lot of people, but most importantly it is very satisfactory for ourselves. Rehearsing on these songs again this weekend just felt bloody great, and we do feel excited by incorporating a few Windir classics in our Vreid set for these shows."

USA based metal band KILLING MACHINE, have revealed that former STRATOVARIUS and current EVERGREY bass guitarist Jari Kainulainen will be joining the band.
Jari will continue with his position in EVERGREY, but the chance to challenge himself in a different field with KILLING MACHINE was an opportunity he did not want to miss.

Commenting on joining the band Jari Kainulainen said "When Peter (Scheithauer) contacted me and asked me to join Killing Machine as replacement for David Ellefson, I had to check it out. And after listening to a few songs I knew straight away that this is something I definitely wanted to be a part of. I especially fell in love with the fast and blasting bass lines and kick ass guitar riffs., so it was an easy decision for me. I'm really looking forward to start playing with these guys."

On welcoming Jari to the band, guitarist Peter Scheithauer said: "First off, I am so thrilled that I can finally announce Jari Kainulainen as the new bass player!!! Once I was done with the demos it was time to think about getting the band together. I wanted people who were ready to tour - no egos. Plus returning to Europe I wanted someone we can hang with who was first and foremost a true metalhead. Csaba (Zvekan) and Jon (Dette) were already in and I knew David (Ellefson) was out of the question for the obvious reasons. I always loved Jari's playing, I saw him several time with Stratovarius and love Evergrey. If someone can play crazy bass lines and be creative it's him. And besides being an outstanding musician he is a very cool guy and at the end that's what really matters."

The completed KILLING MACHINE line up is Csaba Zvekan - Vocals, Peter Scheithauer (TEMPLE OF BRUTALITY / BELLADONNA) - Guitar, Jari Kainulainen (EVERGREY / STRATOVARIUS) - Bass Guitar, Jon Dette (TESTAMENT / SLAYER) - Drums.

KILLING MACHINE will re -locate to Europe for a series of summer shows and recording of the new album. The band have already confirmed an appearance at Germany's Headbangers Open Air Festival on 29th July 2010.

The band recently posted two new songs 'Skull and Bone' and 'Hell Raiser' at

KILLING MACHINE have released two albums, the self titled 'Killing Machine' in 2000 via Candlelight Records and the critically acclaimed 'Metalmorphis' in 2006 via Mausoleum Records which has been hailed by many as one of the all time classic metal albums. The two albums featured a multitude of musicians including James Rivera (HELSTAR, VICIOUS RUMOURS), Jimmy DeGrasso (Y&T), Juan Garcia (AGENT STEEL), Dave Ellefson (MEGADETH), Stet Howland (WASP), Mike Duda (WASP), Mike Vescara (OBSESSION, LOUDNESS)

With two albums under their belts, the band are priming themselves to once again deliver metallic carnage across the globe.Unashamedly wearing their heavy metal roots on their leather studded sleeves, KILLING MACHINE combine the classic metal feel of the past with the fresh aggression of the present. Thunderous bass lines, pounding drums and explosive riffs blend with distinct heavy, melodic vocals to create driving and memorable songs. The music that KILLING MACHINE bring to the party simply stuns - no pretentions - just pure metal entertainment! -

Life Of Agony and I Scream Records sign worldwide deal

I Scream Records is very excited and proud to welcome Life Of Agony to the family.

On Saturday April 3rd 2010 I Scream Records will be recording & filming Life Of Agony's performance at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium, the second show of their exclusive European "20 Years Strong" tour. In late 2009 the band performed their debut album "River Runs Red" in its entirety during a few exclusive, sold out, US shows and now, after popular demand, they're also heading over to Europe to perform a set built around this amazing, legendary album.

The release of this "20 Years Strong" live album, which will also include a free bonus DVD of the complete show at the Ancienne Belgique, exclusive footage and much more, is set for early this Summer.

Crossover-metal kings, Life of Agony, formed in the summer of '89 and quickly built a cult-following upon the release their now classic, debut album, "River Runs Red" released through Roadrunner Records. The band's unique sound and honest lyrics have captivated audiences for two decades now. In celebration of this huge milestone, the group has been performing the record that started it all!!

"We're really excited to capture this moment in time. Twenty years, man, that's no joke! If you would've asked us when we were kids growin' up in Brooklyn, if we thought that we'd ever make something this important to people around the world, we probably would've laughed in your face. But, here we are, still selling out shows after all this time and turning people's tragedy into hope. Somehow, through the music, we've helped a lot of folks out there. And that's what's always been most important to us." - LOA Bassist, Alan Robert

Laurens Kusters says: "We're very excited about this collaboration. This will be an amazing release, recorded at the Ancienne Belgique, one of the most exclusive European clubs, in Brussels Belgium, the city where I Scream Records was founded in 1994."
