SHADOWS FALL And THE HAUNTED Lined Up For This Year's OZZFEST

Century Media recording artists SHADOWS FALL and THE HAUNTED have secured slots at this year's Ozzfest, informed sources have told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. SHADOWS FALL are expected to appear on the main stage while THE HAUNTED are said to be in the mix for the smaller second stage, which will apparently feature more non-rotating slots this summer compared to the last couple of years. Other acts believed to have been selected for the 10-year-anniversary edition of Ozzfest are BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, ROB ZOMBIE, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and MUDVAYNE. IRON MAIDEN are strongly rumored to have nabbed the co-headlining slot alongside BLACK SABBATH, who will make a series of European live appearances in June/July prior to the Ozzfest U.S. kick-off. Also expected to perform on the main stage is the "Among the Living" lineup of ANTHRAX, who have yet to officially confirm their "reunion" plans despite having already been announced for four European festival appearances this spring/summer (Holland's Dynamo Open Air on May 7, Sweden's Sweden Rock on June 9-11, Italy's Gods of Metal on June 11-12 and France's Fury Fest on June 24-26).

Last year's Ozzfest was one of the heaviest in the tour's history, featuring SABBATH, a reunited JUDAS PRIEST, SLAYER, SLIPKNOT, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED, DIMMU BORGIR and others.
