DREAM OF AN OPIUM EATER, the U.K./Norwegian band featuring Benny Calvert from KILLING JOKE, Ivar S. Peersen from ENSLAVED, Reuben Gotto from TWINZERO/JOHNNY TRUANT and Julia Ruzicka from MILLION DEAD, has been confirmed for the 2007 edition of the Roskilde Festival, set to take place July 5-8 in Roskilde, Denmark. Other acts scheduled to appear include IN FLAMES, MACHINE HEAD, KATATONIA, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ZYKLON, VOLBEAT, THE PSYKE PROJECT, PELICAN, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE and MASTODON.

DREAM OF AN OPIUM EATER's official bio reads as follows: "Back in the old days, a pianist usually accompanied screenings of silent films. With DREAM OF AN OPIUM EATER, a handful of ace metal musicians carry on this tradition. They play intense metal to a number of horror short films projected on a screen above them. In this way, they will bathe all ears and eyes in icy horror and fright. Last year, [Ruzicka] joined in on a metallic accompaniment to 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre', so the surreal and disturbing images on the screen are very likely to find a parallel in the guitar-borne nightmare from the speakers."
