Two fairs at the same time and place: next year's Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound will be held concurrently on all days, from 2 to 5 April. With a new sequence of days – from Tuesday to Friday – Musikmesse will strengthen its profile as the platform for the professional exchange of ideas and information between music-industry professionals. The two events will also move physically closer together.
Immediately after the two trade fairs have closed their doors, the 1st 'Musikmesse Plaza' will launch a totally new event concept aimed wholly at consumers. Located in the eastern section of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre, this pop-up market covering a variety of themes and with direct sales by manufacturers and dealers will take place on Saturday, 6 April. By this means, Messe Frankfurt aims to raise the experiential factor to a new level and offer all exhibitors the chance to reach all specific target groups on all five days.

The main parts of Musikmesse Plaza include:
· The 'Vintage Guitar Show' in cooperation with No. 1 Guitar Centre Hamburg where everyone can sell, purchase and exchange guitars
· Special exhibitions on vintage drums, vintage concert audio and electric organs
· A record exchange open to both private and commercial participants
· Exhibition space for labels and other music-business companies
· The 'Accessories + Lifestyle' thematic world with a broad spectrum of products from instrument equipment, via fashion and merchandise articles, to books, posters and photographs
· Numerous events including workshops by top musicians, showcases by well-known artists and 'meet-and-greets'
· A grand final concert in the 'Festhalle Frankfurt'
The 'Discover Music' project for young people will be continued on the Saturday and thus also be part of Musikmesse Plaza.

Written by FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory, the video is dedicated to those Police Officers and First Responders around the world who selflessly put their lives on the line every day. Amongst them a hometown hero of the band--fallen Army Veteran and Las Vegas Police Officer--Charleston Hartfield--lost his life in the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting using his own body to shield and save others from the hail of bullets. Just this week the group again made good on this promise and donated a portion of the ticket sales from their massive summer North American Outdoor Amphitheater Tour equaling $95,000 to C.O.P.S - Concerns Of Police Survivors--whose mission is rebuilding shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by line of duty deaths, through partnerships with law enforcement and the community.

HATE ETERNAL are now premiering the second track of their forthcoming new album 'Upon Desolate Sands', which is slated for release on October 26th, 2018. They are now streaming "Nothingness of Being" via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel at the link below. Mastermind Erik Rutan comments: "For years I have wanted to add a heavier and darker element into Hate Eternal, and for years that vibe just never came to me. For this album the inspiration came and the heaviness followed. Using a lower tuning then our norm for a few songs on "Upon Desolate Sands" and going through some personal life experiences, helped create a depth of darkness and sense of despair to inspire me to write "Nothingness of Being". I never have forced anything when it comes to the writing process, we just let the songs flow naturally and write and play what we feel. Crafting a couple of songs with a completely different tuning really helped direct a different path and direction for the writing process. This song amongst some of the more traditional chaotic tunes on the album helps really create a sense of dynamics in a dramatic way. Every song on this album has its own unique texture creating a vast landscape of musical expression and a multitude of emotions, pushing the envelope in every way we can!"

Written by FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH guitarist Zoltan Bathory, the video is dedicated to those Police Officers and First Responders around the world who selflessly put their lives on the line every day. Amongst them a hometown hero of the band--fallen Army Veteran and Las Vegas Police Officer--Charleston Hartfield--lost his life in the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting using his own body to shield and save others from the hail of bullets. Just this week the group again made good on this promise and donated a portion of the ticket sales from their massive summer North American Outdoor Amphitheater Tour equaling $95,000 to C.O.P.S - Concerns Of Police Survivors--whose mission is rebuilding shattered lives of survivors and co-workers affected by line of duty deaths, through partnerships with law enforcement and the community.

HATE ETERNAL are now premiering the second track of their forthcoming new album 'Upon Desolate Sands', which is slated for release on October 26th, 2018. They are now streaming "Nothingness of Being" via the official Season of Mist YouTube channel at the link below. Mastermind Erik Rutan comments: "For years I have wanted to add a heavier and darker element into Hate Eternal, and for years that vibe just never came to me. For this album the inspiration came and the heaviness followed. Using a lower tuning then our norm for a few songs on "Upon Desolate Sands" and going through some personal life experiences, helped create a depth of darkness and sense of despair to inspire me to write "Nothingness of Being". I never have forced anything when it comes to the writing process, we just let the songs flow naturally and write and play what we feel. Crafting a couple of songs with a completely different tuning really helped direct a different path and direction for the writing process. This song amongst some of the more traditional chaotic tunes on the album helps really create a sense of dynamics in a dramatic way. Every song on this album has its own unique texture creating a vast landscape of musical expression and a multitude of emotions, pushing the envelope in every way we can!"
