The CD was also certified gold in Sweden for sales in excess of 20,000 copies. (Note: The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry [IFPI] in Sweden has revised the sales requirements for albums to reach gold status in the country twice in the last 11 years — from the pre-2002 level of 40,000 to the current 20,000.)

SABATON last year parted ways with guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr.

Bleed From Within: Melting your face off in 2013

Download Festival 2013 is finally just around the corner, so we’re grabbing some of the biggest and best bands from this year’s lineup to throw some irreverent bollocks at. Not literally. That’d be insane. Today, we chat to Ali from Bleed From Within!

Alright, mate! How many times have you been to Donington?

We have been to Download countless times. Davie first went in 2005, and the rest of us lost our Donington virginity in 2006. We have been there almost every year since. The atmosphere, the people, the music; it’s the greatest place to party!

What’s your favourite Donington memory?

Probably meeting Phil Anselmo in 2009. Davie P ran into the toilet, dragged me outside and there he was. We had our photo taken and spoke briefly about ginger hair. Backstage at Download is a crazy place, full of people you never thought you’d meet in person.

What are you most looking forward to about playing this year?

Playing the songs from our new album Uprising live on that stage! It’s been four years since we played Download, so words can’t describe how excited we are! We are going to go fucking nuts on stage, then hit the beers HARD.

Which bands on the bill are you most excited about?

We won’t be there for the full weekend, but we want to be able to catch Cancer Bats, Kvelertak, After The Burial, Karnivool, Mastodon, Katatonia, QOTSA, Rammstein and Limp Bizkit to name a few! It’s going to be a crazy couple of days though, so I’ll be surprised if we even see half those bands.

What can we expect from your set?

A shit load of hair, heavy fucking metal and maybe a guest appearance! We’ve been waiting 4 years to get back in front of the Download crowd. Do NOT miss our set.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever seen at a festival?

Have you ever looked through the toilet seat of those big green communal toilets? We’ve never seen anything like it. That and the price of the burgers.

If you could only pack five things to take with you, what would they be?

Beer, Whisky, Jager, Irn Bru, Sleeping bag.

Download 2013 takes place June 14-16. Grab your tickets now

U.K. act Muleta Smiles has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it quits after the departure of guitarist Matt Blockley:

“Well where to start… We’ve had a great run in Muleta, have been told countless times that we have done good things for our home town which makes us so proud, released an EP of which was recieved with incredible reviews.

“But it is with a heavy heart that we are announcing that Matt has decided to leave the band and with absolutely no hard feelings we have decided we are going to fold the band. Its been such a fun ride and we are all still good friends. We got to support tons of bands we genuinely love and respect but most of all we wanna thank our awesome loyal following who made our shows a popular slot to try and get on countrywide. Thanks to every single person who came out to support an unconventional local act and made our shows memories we will never forget.

“Lastly, keep supporting the real local bands. The ones that prioritize songwriting over merch and pretend tours, keep the very reason why we started bands in the first place alive and show up for the bands who represent the music. Thank you all again so much.”

You can still check out the band’s music by head over to the Muleta Smiles Facebook profile, or watch the video clip for “We Are Entwined” at this location.
