Meshuggah DVD in 07?
siN's metal news reports: In an in-depth interview recently posted at Metal Temple magazine, MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake spoke to Katrina Thompson about the band's musical complexity that has made them such a distinct act, as well as their latest effort, "Catch 33" (2005, Nuclear Blast Records) and the band's future plans. Here's an excerpt from the interview: Metal Temple: Are there any plans for a live album or DVD? 

- Tomas Haake: "Yeah we have plans for that too. Unfortunately we don't have the material like live performance recordings or anything to release that prior to the touring after the next album, so it's probably not going to happen until like 2007. And if we do a thing like that, we really want to do it professionally and get like 6 or 7 cameras out and record like 10 shows and have a separate audio rig for that as far as recording devices go - like use pro tools or something to bring that out. It's gonna cost a lot of money but we don't see any point in releasing like a half shady bad sounding DVD. We want to do it all out in that case. It's in the plans but it's not gonna happen within the next year." [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

An ambitious companion piece to the record The New Yorker said "sums up everything Beck is good at, like an imaginary greatest hits album," Guerolito features an eclectic line-up of artists handpicked by Beck to create Guero's multi-dimensional bizarro twin.

Additionally, Guero cover artist Marcel Dzama will be "remixing" the album's artwork, creating new variations on the distinctive and striking original package.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Highroad No. 28 Debut
Submitted News reports: Australian pop-rockers, Highroad No. 28, are currently in the mid-final stages of pre-production, before embarking upon entering the studio to recording their debut album, "Unsteady and Steady State". Founding member, Andrew J. Cantwell, states: "This record is phenomenal. It is oscillates, undulates and jumps back and forth at the listener, both musically and lyrically. The "Unsteady and Steady State" represents a dichotomy between some very happy days of late and some very painful times of the past, and those pains sporadically re-entering the present again. Musically we well use an additional second guitarist - ex-long term member Phillip Brien. We will also have additional percussion and a female vocalist. The record will have a plethora of effects. With all the thousands and thousands of CD's out their, this is one that will stand out as a gem."

The band enter SNJ studios on November 8'th and release the album in December 2005. January 2006 will see Highroad No. 28 embark on a national tour with another band soon to be announced. In addition, early 2006 sees the band produce their first film clip.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Bono "Crushed" by Canadian PM
antiMusic / Trent McMartin reports: Irish supergroup U2 were in Canada's capital last week for another stop on their highly successful Vertigo tour. Though much attention was focused on the quartet's highly anticipated show at the Corel Centre much of the media was focused on lead singer and activist Bono.

At a press conference earlier in the day the rock star let his thoughts be known on Prime Minister Paul Martin's unwillingness to contribute 0.7 percent of Canada's Gross Domestic Product by 2015 to fight world poverty.

"I'm personally not just disappointed -- I'm crushed, because I really believed the Prime Minister would do that," said Bono referring to the PM's lack of action.

"I'm mystified by the man, actually, at this point, because I like him very much personally and I just think it's a huge opportunity that he's missing out on." [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
