Name Plague Terror
Metal Blade reports: One of Metal Blade's recent signings Seventh Plague, composed of 5 seventeen year old musicians out of Streetsboro, OH, recently changed their name to FOREVER IN TERROR as another band in the US had already trademarked the name. As the band states "Forever In Terror was a name we kicked around for quite some time so finding out we had to legally change our name was actually a blessing in disguise. Forever in Terror was a title of one of our older songs plus it's all over the demo artwork, and we had been asked on several occasions if that was the band name. I guess, in the end, things work out the way they should." 

Be sure to check out the band in action on tour this summer! [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Municipal Waste UK
PR reports: Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Municipal Waste are the reigning kings of the New Wave of Crossover. Municipal Waste deliver blazing fast, rawthrash-core in the tradition of DRI, Suicidal Tendencies, "Animosity"-era Corrosion Of Conformity, Nuclear Assault and Attitude Adjustment. All barely in their 20's, the members of Municipal Waste inject youthful energy and humor into a classic genre they were too young to catch the first time around. See them vaccinate the Reading and Leeds crowd against staying still, and infect them with the 'go mental' virus at Reading Friday 25th August 2006 and Leeds Saturday 26th August 2006 on the Lock-up stage. Where you should be able to catch such wonders as "Thrashing's My Business And Business Is Good", "Thrash? Don't Mind If I Do", and "Drunk As Sh*t".- Click Here for the Full Story

Rock n Women: Shut Up Marie
antiMusic reports: Rock n Women returns! We kick off with Shut Up Marie: antiMusic's editor Keavin Wiggins saw Shut Up Marie play several months back [at the Raven's Heart Benefit] and was really impressed with the band and especially the vocals of the singer Annette. This LA group has been creating a buzz for their energetic live shows. Their latest CD Gimmie is an entertaining set of songs that incorporate a few different musical looks from the band, while still retaining a common identity (mostly the passionate vocals from Annette). She took time out of her hectic schedule to speak with Morley. antiMusic: What's on tap for Shut Up Marie in 2006?

Annette: Shut Up Marie is in the process of signing a management contract with Brainwash Entertainment. Brainwash is interested in creating a functioning record label and securing distribution and building the organization with Shut Up Marie as the main product for the label to blossom into something big enough to eventually support several acts. They believe in S.U.M. as a viable product, and see that there are lots of possibilities with crossover, music licensing, radio airplay, and regional touring. This relationship is one that I think is really god for Shut Up Marie, and we will be announcing our signing with them once all the details are worked out. This is a small company created by motivation and passion, and that's why I think it's a good company to help build Shut Up Marie into something bigger & better than what it is now, and move the project to the next level. Brainwash CEO Barbara Farash is a self-starter, and an all-around wonderful person; I am really excited about the relationship!

Another really exciting development that will help put S.U.M. in the forefront this year is my new gig as host of a great new TV show, "Live On Sunset". This is a program that showcases bands playing in & around L.A.; the rock & roll capital of the world! It's produced by the Go Music Network, and they are currently negotiating contracts with satellite TV networks all around the world.
