Saw over at The Metal Gospel (and www.helloween.org) that on August 23rd 2001, WBWC 88.3 FM in Cleveland / Ohio will present the "Helloween Marathon":
From 7am EST until 1am EST., which is 1pm CET until 7am CET, those guys are playing Helloween album tracks, rare b-sides, live stuff, and solo/side project material. Furthermore they'll have various members of the band on at different times during the day.
If you now think "well, that's a great thing, but I don't live in or near Cleveland" - no problem, you can access the marathon over the internet at: http://www.bw.edu/~wbwc/listen.html

There were rumors of a possible split of Voivod. Hopefully Century Media has denied them recently but not the ones concerning a change of line-up.
For the moment, we don't know who's leaving and who's joining Voivod.

Anneke and the band are working on their next album. It seems that there will be 12 songs on it. The release date is still unknown. They have to work more on the tracks to add some more elements so few chances it will be released in 2001.

It's official now, Benjamin Richter is no longer vocalist of the german darkwave metal band Evereve. His replacement has been found in Keyboarder/songwriter/leader "MZ Eve 51" (Martin Zeissl). He has taken over Ben's position a little while ago before the sessions for "E-Mania" started.
Seen on this official Cruachan site :
"We will soon be advertising to find someone to join our ranks because our guest keyboard player Dennis has too many other projects to commit to touring etc. We still do not know exactly what we need (guitarist or keyboard player), when we have decided we will put adds around Dublin and an add on the site."
A bunch of bands are in studio. Prepare your pennies... :-)

Megadeth's new album "The World Needs A Hero" will be released on the 14th of May 2001.
This album is supposed to be a return to the old 'rust in peace'-'countdown to extinction' songwriting style.
