PICC Line Productions has announced the details of the fifth annual Texas Metal Health concert, an established fundraiser benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, to be held at Sam's Burger Joint in San Antonio, Texas on August 18, 2007.
The 2007 show is a celebration of metal featuring a variety of metal bands — both old and new school — including REVEREND, TENSION SPEAK, AWAKEN THE FALLEN, AMERICULT and DAMIJ.

REVEREND's upcoming CD, which was recorded at Blue Cat Studios with Grammy Award-wining producer Joe Trevino, will include the last lyrics penned by late REVEREND/METAL CHURCH singer David Wayne, titled "With This Needle I Thee Wed". "This song will no doubt be a controversial song, but is aimed at the addictions of life, and how it changes people forever," the band previously explained in a press release. Songtitles set to appear on the album include (in no particular order):
01. In the End
04. Darkened Horizon
05. Ships of Illusion
07. With This Needle I Thee Wed
08. Universal Metal
09. River of Hate (Styx)
10. Unconscious Suicide
The upcoming CD will be the group's first with new frontman Michael Lance (ex-ANCIENT CROSS), who replaced David Wayne last year.
Wayne died on May 10, 2005 due to complications from injuries he sustained in a head-on automobile accident several months earlier. He was 47 years old.
