MEGADETH has been forced to withdraw from MOTÖRHEAD's Motörboat cruise for medical reasons. Heavy metal all-star band METAL ALLEGIANCE — featuring MEGADETH's David Ellefson and Chris Broderick — has been added to the September 22-26 cruise.

With rest and treatment, he is expected to recover and resume performing soon. The band was looking forward to the concerts and cruise, and is disappointed that they will not be able to see their fans. MEGADETH expects to return to the road and will see their fans soon!".

Vocalist Johan Hegg of Swedish death metallers AMON AMARTH last year joined the cast of "Northmen - A Viking Saga". Hegg plays Viking warrior Valli in the film, which was shot for eight weeks primarily in South Africa, with some additional shooting in Germany.
Johan comments on his role: "Valli is a very experienced warrior and has a strong bond with his younger brother Bjorn. Valli looks brutal with his broad back and leather-dominated clothing. He has already experienced and survived a great deal. His face is full of scars."
Plot synopsis: "In the 9th century a group of Vikings, commanded by captain Asbjörn, is approaching Britain, aiming to plunder the rich monasteries in the north of the island. But their ship gets caught in a storm and is smashed to pieces on the rocks off the coast of Scotland, the only part of Britain without any Viking settlements. When Inghean, daughter of the Scottish King Dunchaid, by chance falls into Viking hands, they see the opportunity for demanding a large ransom. King Dunchaid immediately sets his 'wolfpack' — a group of mercenaries well known for their savagery — on them. The Northmen with their hostage now have to force their way through the rough highlands, where they meet the brave and mysterious Christian monk Conall. Having the wolfpack close on their heels, a desperate race against time begins. A battle over life and death..." A new trailer for "Northmen - A Viking Saga" can be seen below. The movie is set to receive a theatrical release in Europe on October 23.

Hal Leonard has set an October 21 release date for "Brian May's Red Special: The Story Of The Home-Made Guitar That Rocked Queen And The World". Brian May and his father Harold started to hand-build an electric guitar in 1963. Brian dreamed of a guitar that would outperform any of the existing commercially made electric guitars; his father had the technical knowledge and skills to help make the dream come true. Brian played his guitar on every QUEEN album and in all of QUEEN's live shows around the world. In this book you will discover everything you ever wished to know about Brian's unique instrument. Brian talks about every aspect of the Red Special, from its birth to playing on the roof of Buckingham Palace, from Live Aid to the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics — and beyond. All of this is accompanied with original diagrams, sketches and notes dating from the building of the guitar, as well as a great selection of photographs including Brian on stage with his guitar, close-ups and x-rays.

On November 28th the believed lost “Pekin Tapes” by PAVLOV'S DOG will be released by Rockville Music. The Pekin Tapes were recorded in October 1973, nearly two years before “Pampered Menial”, and were originally intended to become the band's debut album. They fascinatingly demonstrate the variety and wide-ranging musical scope of the early Pavlov's Dog, as the band itself handled the production, with no outside producer to answer to. When ABC Records listened to the “Pekin Tapes“, they signed the band and decided to send them back to studio to produce a completely new album: “Pampered Menial“ was released in 1975 and became a milestone in Progressive Rock history. The “Pekin Tapes“ though were never used and finally forgotten. Golden Voice Studio in Pekin/IL burned down in 1977, taking with it the masters of the “Pekin Tapes“. They were believed lost since then. Unexpectedly, in 2014 a copy of the “Pekin Tapes“ was discovered. After going to extensive lengths to restore the tape, the “Pekin Tapes“ will be released with a delay of some 41 years. Additionally, the release includes four bonus tracks of early demo recordings from March 1973. These are the earliest Pavlov's Dog signs of life ever discovered.
