Commented guitarist Kinky Pork Cream: "We look forward to playing this festival and look for us to confirm more European dates in the near future as part of our 'Unsuck The Continent' tour 2009. Oh yeah!! PILEDRIVER is returning to Europe."

THE EXALTED PILEDRIVER's first album in 22 years, "Metal Manifesto", was released on November 18. The CD was mixed by veteran Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, NEVERMORE) and it follows up the classic cult discography of the band: "Metal Inquisition" (1985) and "Stay Ugly" (1986).

PILEDRIVER was founded in 1985 by Gord Kirchin. They were known for an over-the-top image and flamboyant song titles/lyrics ("Sex With Satan", "Alien Rape", "Sodomize the Dead", "Witch Hunt", "Human Sacrifice", etc). Probably their best known song was the title track of their debut album, "Metal Inquisition", which featured in the chorus the sound of a falling guillotine blade chopping someone's head off. The album was followed by "Stay Ugly" a year later.
