Long-running Swedish metallers DESTINY have been forced to cancel their appearance at the Metal Meet Festival on July 30 due to health reasons. "This means that Kristoffer Göbel, the band's singer, can’t perform live until he has regained his strength," the band write on their web site. "DESTINY will not use a stand-in singer live. Instead they will stop all live work until Kristoffer is properly rested and ready to work again. DESTINY is disappointed to cancel the Metal Meet appearance so close to the festival but feels that Kristoffer’s health must take first priority. The band hopes to play the festival next year instead."

As previously reported, DESTINY have almost completed the basic tracks for the re-recording of the band's debut album, "Beyond All Sense", originally released almost twenty years ago. "Beyond All Sense 2005" is scheduled for release on March 14, 2005, twenty years after the original album release (March 13, 1985).
