Hate Eternal has dropped off their tour with Job For A Cowboy due to guitarist/singer Erik Rutan's hospitalization. Comments the band:

"Erik was admitted to an Iowa City hospital on the early morning of Nov. 23rd and has remained under doctor's supervision since. The infection has caused concern for the doctors, but the major concern of the doctor's is, Erik's kidney. Erik has had a couple of procedures done on his kidney. Erik will not be able to continue the tour, but he is expected to make a full recovery. He is expected to be released sometime next week and then will seek further treatment at home in Florida. Hate Eternal would like thank to everyone on the tour for their understanding of the situation. Hate Eternal would also like to thank all the fans who have expressed concern for Erik's health."

In Stores Next Week:

Toetag/Shattered Realm - Split
Various Artists - Roadrunner United: The Concert [DVD]


Recommendation of the Week:

Imagine, if you will, that the Beastie Boys (circa License to Ill) decided to start a hardcore band. The result would likely be very similar to Detroit's RZL DZL (pronounced Razzle Dazzle). They're a fun band whose short-but-sweet discography plays like the soundtrack to a hardcore party. Need proof? Just give "Ignorance is Bliss," "Strictly Saucers," or "Dirty Work" a listen. Check 'em out here.

Can not wait for Hollow Crown from Architects. That is going to be epic and Dillenger is going to be great!

Killswitch are recording a new album over winter too, which is great news.

Cheers for this Alex!
