Also scheduled to appear on the bill are CHILDREN OF BODOM, LAMB OF GOD and THINE EYES BLEED, with the British band MENDEED replacing IN FLAMES on the U.K. leg of the tour. Additionally, it has now been confirmed that French extreme metallers GOJIRA will join the bill for the Paris date on November 7 at Palais Omnisport De Paris Bercy (GOJIRA will perform right after openers THINE EYES BLEED).
