It's Official: GIZMACHI Added To OZZFEST's Second Stage

As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on May 1, upstate New York's GIZMACHI have now officially filled one of the "mystery band" slots on the second stage of this year's Ozzfest.

GIZMACHI will release their debut CD, "The Imbuing", on May 3 on Big Orange Clown Records, an imprint of Sanctuary Records. "The Imbuing" was produced by SLIPKNOT's M.

GIZMACHI is comprised of Sean Kane on vocals, Jay Hannon and Mike Laurino on guitars, Kris Gilmore on bass and Jimmie Hatcher on drums.
