Manowar Guitarist Karl Logan To Miss Upcoming Tour After Arrest

Following the news reported yesterday that Manowar guitarist Karl Logan was arrested and charged with six counts of third degree exploitation of a minor, Manowar’s management has posted a statement online confirming that the guitarist will not be taking part in the band’s upcoming tour. Magic Circle Entertainment stated:

“With regard to Karl Logan’s arrest and the charges against him: Due to the fact that Karl and his attorneys are dealing with these issues, he will not perform with Manowar. The new album and upcoming tour will not be affected.”

There has been no word yet on who will replace Logan on the upcoming tour dates and potentially the recording of the next album, but former guitarist David Shankle posted a lengthy statement on Facebook claiming he would be delighted to return to the fold:

“After thinking a lot, I consider appropriate to put together some words about the unfortunate events that have happened recently with Karl, which are of public knowledge and I will not repeat here, I just want to emphasize that I believe in the justice of my beloved country and I am sure that the truth will come to light very soon. Meanwhile, I want to thank you all for the innumerable messages I am receiving, for that reason, as I said before, I consider important to say a few words…

“For those who do not know, I joined Manowar back in 1988 after overcoming a casting from around 150 guitar players, I can proudly tell you that I was present during the mix of the iconic Kings Of Metal and I had the privilege of doing the tour to present the album. As everyone knows, I did not intervened in the composition of such a great album.

“Situation that changed on the double platinum awared “The Triumph Of Steel”, where I composed approximately half of the material, I always thought about the sequel to that album, both me and all the fans always imagined what the second part would be like … well. ..the truth is that the second part is already composed and is now being recorded together with my brothers of FEANOR, along with them, I have forged 10 songs of roaring steel, including THE ODYSSEY in 7 parts, an epic song like all of you expected and waited for so long…

“Well, the wait is over !!! get ready to listen to how Achilles should have evolved, Ride The Dragon, Master Of The Wind … Now I can show you and, in fact, I will show you how was the continuation of those songs that I kept for many years. in my head.

“Today, as you can imagine, I am full of duties and responsibilities, but it is also true that I am part of the Manowar family, I always had the best relationship with Joey, Eric and all the other guys that I consider nothing less but brothers, so if Duty calls my door, I will be happy to be present my weapons once again. As always I will give the best of me, 100%, as I did in Manowar and as I currently do in FEANOR, with whom I will do an extensive tour of South America in November.

“Finally, thanks once again for so much love and for so many beautiful words, I know that many of you want me back in Manowar, but the reality is that I am very excited about the record that we ended up with FEANOR and that I know. I’M SURE, all of you will enjoy greatly. I do not know what destiny has for me, I can only assure you that THE SHRED DEMON is more active than ever and very soon we will see each other again on the tour and they will be able to listen to the tremendous new songs that I have. for all of you. I love you all.”

Hollow World Signs With Truth Inc. Records

Truth Inc Records are very excited to announce the signing of rising melo-death outfit Hollow World. The five-piece hails from Melbourne and has taken the Australian heavy scene by storm in 2017 with the release of its debut album “Exanimate” as well as gracing stages around the country with some of the best bands Australia, and the world, has to offer.

After playing coveted festivals such as the inaugural Thrash, Blast and Grind Festival in Melbourne, Blacken Open Air in Alice Springs and the Dead of Winter festival in Brisbane and supporting the likes of Fleshgod Apocalypse and Fallujah, Hollow World are set to tour Australia with Once Human in early 2018 and then are planning on setting their sights beyond Australian shores.

“We are excited to join a label like Truth Inc. We’ve always admired the Truth Corroded guys and their drive and now, to work with their label after seeing what they have done in the past with other Australian bands, we are very keen. They have impressed us with their vision for the future and we are looking forward to moving ahead with them as we grow our career,” says vocalist Ben Roberts of the decision.

Truth Inc are equally excited at the prospect of working with Hollow World and helping them reach their potential.

“We are incredibly stoked to have Hollow World join the label! They are one of the best bands to have come out of the frenetic Melbourne heavy music scene in recent years and have been as unrelenting in their work ethic as in the extremity of their music. Having firmly established themselves as a leader in the industry I look forward to working with them on the bands next album and see them grow internationally,” label manager Greg Shaw adds.
