Last Friday, we reported that reunited metal band Detritus cancelled their performance at Alive Festival (Formerly known as Rock Alive). The festival would take place next month (May 17-18-19) in Zelhem, the Netherlands. At the time of writing, there was no statement from the organization, until last night:

No longer Alive…

Once in a while you will be faced with hard decisions as a festival, or are you confronted with a reality you rather wouldn’t be in. But the one we are facing now just can’t be ignored. The ticketsales for this edition of the (Rock) Alive festival have been disappointing so much that it’s no longer sensible or justified to continue. So to our deepest regrets we see no other way than to cancel the whole festival. This also puts an end to a journey that started five years ago with a whole lot of passion and enthusiasm for the Christian music scene. That even adds to the regret we feel for having to make this decision. Continue reading »

“The Quest” the new album of Canadian Symphonic / Celtic Metal artist Leah is available now, released on Oct. 5th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound RecordingsLEAH checked in with the following:

In 2018 my family and I went on a Slow Travel adventure with our five kids! We explored Ireland, England, and Scotland. The Rock of Cashel was definitely a highlight as we drove through on our way to Dingle!

From Wiki: “The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion. In 1101, the King of Munster, Muirchertach Ua Briain, donated his fortress on the Rock to the Church. The picturesque complex has a character of its own and is one of the most remarkable collections of Celtic art and medieval architecture to be found anywhere in Europe. Few remnants of the early structures survive; the majority of buildings on the current site date from the 12th and 13th centuries.”

It’s an incredible place to visit if you’re ever passing through! Continue reading »
