ATTACKER, LEATHERWOLF and VICIOUS RUMORS are the first confirmed bands for the Festival De Metal Boricua 5, set to take place Saturday, May 17, 2008 at the Coliseo De Cayey, in Cayey, Puerto Rico.

Information on the complete lineup, showtimes and tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.

Chavis Records has unveiled the new cover art for "Standing the Test of Time", the "best-of" release from New Jersey metallers ATTACKER. The exquisite cover art was hand painted by artist Jowita Kaminska. "The cover is symbolic and the meaning is definitive, it tells our story," explains vocalist Bob Mitchell.

The CD will contain 16 tracks, including four tracks from each release.

LEATHERWOLF will be rejoined by bassist Paul Carman for its upcoming European dates in November. "Paul lives out in Colorado these days but he's part of the family so it's good to have him back on board for this European run," the group writes. "It will be the first time since spring 2003 when we played with HALFORD at The Grove in Anaheim that the classic LEATHERWOLF lineup is performing together on stage!"

The upcoming shows will be the band's first European dates since reuniting with original lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Olivieri and guitarist Carey Howe earlier in the year. The reconvened triple axe attack will headline Germany's Keep It True festival and is playing an additional half dozen select dates in Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy.
