Former DIMMU BORGIR/CRADLE OF FILTH drummer Nick Barker will make his live debut with BENEDICTION at Austria's Devil Days festival on Friday, June 10. On the new album front, initial rehearsals have gone "extremely well" and everybody is getting on "as well as a church on fire!!!" BENEDICTION's ritual of warming up with cover versions in rehearsals has produced a version of SACRILEGE's (U.K.) "Lifeline", which will reportedly feature BOLT THROWER's Karl Willetts (vocals) and Barry Thompson (lead guitar) when it is finally recorded for bonus material.BENEDICTION's follow-up album to 2001's "Organised Chaos" is tentatively due before the end of the year.
