DARK TRANQUILLITY: Moscow Was One Of Top 5 Best Shows Ever

Swedish melodic death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY have issued the following update:

"Finland/Russia/Ukraine rocks...

"Another successful tour has come to an end. Thanks to everyone that attended the gigs to show their support and make this such a memorable trip for us.

"Finland was amazing, with a devoted and dedicated audience that didn't disappoint one bit. The highlight was the nearly-sold-out Tavastia show, which marked our first headline gig in Helsinki since 1996, when we played in the now legendary Lepakko club, supported by a young HIM. (!)

"Russia and Ukraine was everything we expected and more, and it's no exaggeration to state that the performance in Moscow deserves a spot in the Top 5 list of the best shows ever. We've been waiting for so many years to get over there, and other bands have spoken highly of the great reception they've gotten, but our sky-high expectations were surpassed.

"Finally, a huge thanks to everyone involved in the promotion/organization of these shows for their great professionalism and hospitality."

METAL RIP OFF - worldwide community against rip offers

It’s not a secret that being faced with such underground phenomenon like RIP OFF (or simply DECEPTION), a man is unable to overcome this problem: he only could publish the list of swindlers on own sites and send it to his contacts. It is playing into hands of the dishonest lovers of free CD’s allowing them to remain in nonexistence, change names, e-mails and continue to cheat people.

An internet-portal where any interested person can register and add information about a deceiver (including his address and other details) is created. It’s possible to put information in a few thematic categories (labels (labels, distro, shops), medias (magazines, radios, web-zines), buyers (not paid a purchase)).

Every note may be commented (the way the exposed “comrades” can justify oneself) or it is possible to use private messages system to contact with note author for heart-to-heart talk.

Moreover, if you are an active CD trader and often get letters from unknown labels, it is always possible to use the information search system of the site to check these labels for presence in a database.
