NEWS: Brent gets ejected; Monster Truck and Korpiklaani album artwork

Unleashing a Monster

The Nickelback tour has not as yet confirmed a Belfast date, but for those that decide to make the journey across the North Channel they will see Canuck rockers Monster Truck open proceedings.

Guitarist Jeremy Widerman said: "What a peculiar and exciting experience it is to be simultaneously working on our new record and preparing for another trek across UK/Europe. We couldn't possibly more excited to share the big stage with Nickelback and make our third trip overseas!"

Korpiklaani's new release artwork unveiled

In anticipation of their forthcoming new album, Finnish folk metal superstars KORPIKLAANI have revealed the cover artwork for ‘Noita’.The artwork was done by Jan Yrlund from Darkgrove Design, who has created all the Korpiklaani covers in recent years
