MACHINE HEAD has been added to SLIPKNOT‘s first-ever Knotfest, an extraordinary two-date metal and hard rock festival set to take place on August 17 in Council Bluffs, Iowa and August 18 in Somerset, Wisconsin.
Commented the festival organizers: “The mighty MACHINE HEAD has been tapped as one of the artists to replace the cancelation of LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK. We are very excited that MACHINE HEAD is rushing back from Europe to play Knotfest. They will perform at both the Iowa and Somerset/Minneapolis Knotfest shows. We expect to announce another artist in the next day or two.”

UK legends MOTÖRHEAD have launched their own brand of beer, Bastards Lager. Made in Sweden by the Krönleins brewery, it can be ordered by the case via the Swedish state liquor shop, Systembolaget. It is currently only available in Sweden.
“Motörhead Bastards Lager is a gloriously fresh and fruity beer with a wonderful char- acter of light malt. It’s easy to drink but has a hard rock edge. It’s perfect for all those occasions when you feel that craving for a cold beer such as those summer barbecues and picnics, naturally with music pumping at full blast through the loudspeakers.
This Bastard has a refreshing, zesty taste with a nice malt curve and a hint of citrus. A quality beer that can be appreciated by rock ‘n’ roll fans of all ages.”

As The Gauntlet report, Megadeth left the stage early due to band members, mainly Dave Mustaine, taking a barrage of bottles and rocks while performing. You can check out the fan-filmed footage above of the attack. The final rock hits Dave at the 9:50 mark.
Rumor at the event was Dave Mustaine got into an argument with Blackie Lawless of W.A.S.P. resulting in W.A.S.P. dropping off the bill last minute. This has yet to be confirmed and doesn’t sound all that plausible as W.A.S.P. was already at the show, why would they split. Plus the fact that frontman Blackie Lawless is a born-again christian like Mustaine. My guess is they even shared favorite bible versus backstage. Or maybe it is true and Mustaine has in the contract that only one band can be religious zealots on the headlining stage. Anyways, upon hearing that W.A.S.P. pulled out, fans were pissed and let Mustaine know it with the bottle and rock attack followed by the inevitable stage hand trying to calm the crowd down while being booed himself.
“What do you mean Megadeth isn’t coming back to be abused by us some more!?!”
