70,000 Tons Of Metal May Be Christofer Johnsson’s Final Show

Christofer Johnsson of Therion will be performing at the impending 70K Tons Of Metal cruise, but the musician will then be taking time off performing and recording due to a serious health issue. He comments:

“Possibly my final live performance ever on 70,000 Tons Of Metal. Over 2 weeks ago I started to get HUGE pains in my arm, shoulder and back. It hurt worse if I lay down and got worse by each day. In the end I could not even sleep in bed anymore and had to sit up sleeping in the sofa every night.

“Medicare in Sweden don’t work anymore. Equipment is great and the doctors are competent and do their best, but due to the massive population increase, the capacity and medical infrastructure has lacked behind each year and just seem to get worse and worse. After I got in contact with the emergency, it took me eight (8) days before I got to see a physiotherapist and he could not make a proper diagnosis without a MRI scan of the neck. It would have taken up to a month before I would get a MRI done and then it can take another month before I get the results.

“At this point I slept worse and less each night and when I tried to play guitar, I would only play half a song before the pain made me stop + my motorics got so bad that I was even physically unable to play most songs.

“In order to not have to cancel 70.000 Tons of Metal and in order to faster get a diagnosis and get it cured, I (upon recommendation) decided to fly to Moscow and have it done there. They are at the same technical and competence level like in Sweden, but have capacity to treat patients immediately. So I got an appointment straight away, flew there and got a fantastic care with not only MRI, but also got to see a neurologist, physiotherapists and specialists.

“So I got a diagnosis the same day and it seems I have two spinal disc herniations in my neck, one really bad and one small that could get worse. In plain English this means that two of my discs in the neck are worn out (from headbanging and sitting too much in front of computer in the office and the studio) and have cracked so that fluid runs out from it. The fluid put pressure on the nerves in the spinal chord and create pain in shoulder/arm/back and distort mobility in the right arm.

“In order to stabilize the neck, I have to wear a support collar for 2 weeks (even on stage) and they gave me cortisone injections to block parts of the pain temporary. So now I can at least (after 2 weeks of sleeping sitting in the sofa) sleep in my bed and with some pain and efforts I can play a festival set of simplest possible songs. So at least we don’t have to cancel.

“After the cruise I will go back to Russia to meet a world class neuro surgeon who will determine whether it’s better to do surgery or to treat this without knives. The advantage with surgery is that if successful, I would recover much quicker. But surgery in the neck is always a risk and if worse come to worse, a failed surgery there could end up with me never being able to play on stage again.

“To treat without surgery will be very painful and normally take 4-5 months before fully recovered (if unlucky longer), but this is what I am hoping for and the specialists that gave me the diagnosis were quite sure it would be treatable that way. But we will know for sure what the deal is after I’ve met the neuro surgeon after the cruise.

“So what does all this mean? It means that I will be playing at 70,000 TOM with great difficulties and using a support collar. It also means that the Rock Opera will get some month or two delayed, as I can’t sit in the studio at the computer (I will have to use a studio assistant) and not for as long sessions as usual.

“It also means that if I end up having to do surgery, there is always a small risk that the cruise will end up being my final stage performance (which is a good reason for choosing the best surgeon Russia has to offer as soon as possible before the odds get worse – rather than taking my chances being assigned one randomly in Sweden and maybe have to wait many months before they have time to do it).

“Finally I would like to give a special THANK YOU to the following: Russian Embassy of Stockholm and the IFS Visa Centre in Stockholm. You people did much more than obligated by your duties and thanx to your extra efforts, I could get visa done in time for the hastily booked trip.

“Leyla Namazova-Baranova and all the amazing medical specialists and staff at the hospital in Moscow, who offered me the most professional medical care treatment I have every experienced. Thanx to you people I have a diagnose now (instead of in 2 months from now), I can sleep in my bed at night and I can now even play guitar enough that we don’t have to cancel the cruise.

“Alexander Osipov and Jane Odintsova from Imperial Age who suggested me to fly to Moscow instead and who also arranged everything for me there. If it wasn’t for you guys I would have canceled the cruise by now.”

Castle Streams Full “Welcome To The Graveyard” Album

Castle’s entire newly released album “Welcome To The Graveyard” is now online for streaming – check it out below.

Reflects guitarist Mat Davis: “We’re extremely proud to finally stream ‘Welcome To The Graveyard.’ We set out on a left hand path from the beginning with this beast of an album, right up until the final nails were put in its coffin. We looked to make this album work as a whole, with a stripped down rock element that hearkened back to our debut In Witch Order and infusing that with bursts of orchestrated melody.

” It’s our favorite record to date because it combines all the different elements of Castle and lets them shine equally; epic heavy metal, doom, ’70s rock, and [bassist/vocalist] Liz [Blackwell]’s vocals are more soulfully evil than ever before which adds to the haunted ride.”

Brute Forcz Signs With Sliptrick Records, New EP To Be Released

Los Angeles’ Brute Forcz is a kick ass heavy metal band formed in 2010 after ex-professional wrestlers Slammer and Jammer decided they wanted to make heavy metal music in the style of Motorhead, Judas Priest, AC/DC and W.A.S.P.

The power trio began performing in Los Angeles in the Summer of 2010. They immediately gained attention and a growing fan base opening for bands such as W.A.S.P., LA Guns, Loudness, Michael Schenker Group, Joey Bella Donna (Anthrax), Y&T, Steel Panther, George Lynch and many more.

The band also caught the attention of legendary producers Bob Kulick and Brett Chassen and recorded their debut album “Out for Blood” at Office Studios. After spending the last few years dealing with Injuries, surgeries, bad finances, departures, and even death, Brute Forcz is back with a new self-titled 4 song EP.

The EP features guitarist Rowan Robertson (Ex-Dio) and was engineered and produced by legendary producer Bill Metoyer (Metal Blade A & R, Slayer to name a few) and Skull Seven Productions.

More information on the EP is expected soon.
