OzzFest!

3 Nov

First of all, today is November 3rd…the Japanese holiday 「文化の日」(“Culture Day”).
If you went to the 浅草 (Asakusa) area of Tokyo today, you would have seen the interesting 「東京時代祭り」(“Tokyo-Era Festival”).

I’ve been to that festival a couple of times before. Click here to see the photos and videos I took of it in 2008.

Anyways, I found out yesterday that the godfathers of heavy metal, Black Sabbath will come to Japan in May 2013!

Ozzy Osbourne will bring his metal festival “OzzFest” to Japan for the first time!

Click here to visit the official OzzFest Japan website.

On Saturday, May 11th 2013, Slipknot will headline.
On Sunday, May 12th 2013, Black Sabbath will headline.

The venue will be the Makuhari Messe not far from Tokyo.

      I can’t believe it took this long ’til they finally brought it to Japan!

      And I can’t believe this will be the first time for legendary Black Sabbath to play in Japan (Ozzy has played in Japan a number of times solo (and recorded his “Live at the Budokan” album in Tokyo)…but Sabbath have never been here before!)

    Hi, guys!!!

    We are ESTAMPIDA,a thrash metal band from Spain,and we would like to
    let you know about us!!!
    If you want some stuff just like, bio, some more tracks or something
    just let me know!!!

    OFFICIAL ESTAMPIDA PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT: “Crowd Control” videoclip.

    This announcement is about the removing by YOUTUBE our recent video
    “CROWD CONTROL”.

    Over one month ago, YouTube has decided to remove our video from the
    corresponding channel, without giving any kind of precise explanation,
    just by noting that our work did not meet their regulations and
    policies. Having been a month, doing an intense paperwork and forms,
    together with NADIR MUSIC and AL LENTE COMUNICACION AUDIOVISUAL. The
    only response we had was that the music video was removed from the
    channel, and that they considerated invalid our replica and appeal.

    As ESTAMPIDA, NADIR MUSIC and AL LENTE COMUNICACION AUDIOVISUAL, We
    want to make clear that “WE DON’T ADMIT ANY CHARGE” and We invite
    anyone who has seen, to tell us if our work had some sort of malicious
    scenes or any kind of vocabulary is often aggravating see in the same
    YOUTUBE. The work done by the three parties mentioned above, based on
    the promotion of the video was hard and intense, costed much
    sacrifice, and media, label, fans and bands, exactly know how hard it
    is reaching more than 15,000 visits Worldwide. The fact still remains
    unchanged: they have taken our video in a unceremoniously dictatorial
    and arbitrary way. The decision is taken, and that means to us to
    start again, working harder than before, those who know us know our
    fighting spirit, the video will be uploaded again, and as often as
    NECESSARY. As always, We deeply thank all Medias that will echo this
    statement, and for all our Fans, let the new link to “CROWD CONTROL”:

    Finally, we leave the following message:

    “Gentlemen of YOUTUBE, We deeply regret that You did not like our
    video, We deeply regret that our style is not “dancing on the top of a
    boat”, and We deeply regret that our work does not allow adequate
    remuneration”.

    Our style is HEADBANGING, our style is singing AGAINST WORLD
    DOMINATION, AGAINST CENSORSHIP, and AGAINST HANDLING BY THE MEDIA.

    Thank you very much for Your kind attention!
