Swedish extreme metallers NECROPHOBIC have replaced VADER on the billing of the Chas Metal Attack 2 festival, set to take place March 9 at Circo Volador in Mexico City. VADER reportedly pulled out the event due to scheduling conflicts.

The Chas Metal Attack 2 organizers have also shot down rumors that the event's headliners DESTRUCTION have cancelled their participation in the festival due to the fact that they will share the stage with Germany's NARGAROTH, a band that is rumored to have ties to various neo-Nazi organizations (something that NARGAROTH firmly denies).

"Chas Productions respects the beliefs, religions, thoughts of every person and only asks for reciprocity," the organizers write in a statement. They go on to state that they have reached an agreement with the two bands to go ahead with their participation in the festival.

Chas Metal Attack 2 festival billing is as follows:
