Denver’s KHEMMIS have already ensured that future bards will sing their praises and adventures far into the future due to the excellence of sophomore record Hunted alone. They blend the perfect amount of epic doom, harmonized guitar, melodic and grim vocals and attention to tone into a potent and heady battle brew.

Now the band has been confirmed to take place in the Seventh Annual Decibel Magazine Tour, set to run through North America from February 15th through March 10th. This is not out of left field, since Decibel gushed about Hunted as the magazine’s pick for album of the year of 2016 (no easy feat).

Issues the band, “We’re honored to be part of the 2018 Decibel Tour alongside Wolves In The Throne Room, Myrkur, and the legendary Enslaved. We look forward to playing in a number of new cities, particularly throughout Canada, as well as returning to a number of areas we know and love. We might even include a new song from our upcoming album — the only way to know is to be there!”

Halford is arguably the most talented classic elder front man still active in metal (and showing no signs of slowing down). Judas Priest are gods of metal, even if some people think they are just a ‘rock n roll’ band. Eff that. They are molten British Steel, baby.

Today the band have announced a new studio album Firepower and a big tour with support from Saxon and Black Star Riders! That is one hell of a kick ass grouping of acts.

I am listening to “Delusions” from Wistful by Norwegian songstress Sylvaine right now after a deep sleep and it is gently easing me back to reality after I collapsed into bed this evening. The music has me feeling like I am still dreaming though I am also admittedly in the dark, very exhausted from a moving job and somewhat dizzy from Spiro and being over-caffeinated today. Honestly, this music is so easy to get lost in and so comfortable as an escape from the state of things right now that I want to just stop typing, close my eyes and drift off with it, but then I would fail to remind our dear readers in Europe about Sylvaine’s new tour which starts imminently!

Shores Of Null who support are a Metal Riot favorite (read a review of their latest HERE) and I have never heard of Harikiri For The Sky, but how bad could they be to earn a spot on such a cool tour? Hopefully she will come back to the United States soon as well.

Immortal Bird to begin first European tour with Moshpig this month

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 1:13 PM (PST)

I was just playing Immortal Bird the other day to sort of expand the horizons of someone ‘stuck’ in Converge and ETID land. Not that there is anything wrong with those acts – they are both super talented and awesome – but a lot of younger kids I know sort of get in to them and stop there. There is a whole wide world of heavy music waiting for you beyond the most popular acts!

Anyway, Immortal Bird are a big favorite here at Metal Riot – one of the most self-challenging and determined acts out there. They are now kicking off their first European tour! To our Euro readers…GO TO THIS!!! And of course check out their recent music HERE.

“It’s our first time touring Europe,” says vocalist Rae Amitay. “We’re going out with a super intense and fun French grindcore band, Moshpig, hitting four countries in two weeks, and a couple of the highlights will be the Damnation Prefest in Leeds and Bilbao Deathfest in Spain with Sete Star Sept, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Internal Suffering, and a bunch more. Very stoked to get out of the US for a minute!”

The tour starts October 21st and features French grindcore band Moshpig as well.

The brotherhood that is Black Label Society are hitting the road again. Rocking plenty a face off of late with Zakk Sabbath and Ozzy is not enough for the insatiable guitarist Zakk Wylde and the man with a plan is taking BLS back to the stages of America in 2018. The band will be supporting Grimmest Hits and are bringing a stellar array of heavy support on select dates from Eyehategod, Red Fang and Corrosion Of fuckin’ Conformity.

Paranormal features special guests like U2’s Larry Mullen Jr., who plays on 9 of the 12 new songs; Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top; Deep Purple’s Roger Glover, as well as a highly anticipated mini-reunion of the original Alice Cooper band members.

Now Alice has announced tour dates which you can see BELOW.

King Parrot announce UK headliner

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, September 29, 2017 at 1:00 PM (PST)

Was listening to Locrian’s bleakly comforting “The Future Of Death” when some fresh thrashy news hit my inbox. The UK is cooler than we are in America and thus Australian rage-a-holics King Parrot can probably do a better proper headliner there. Let’s face it, a lot of Americans listen to hot garbage when not believing steaming horseshit.

“We’re excited to announce a headlining UK tour this November, in support of our new album, Ugly Produce”, states KING PARROT’s vocalist, Matt Young. The Australian thrash metal / grindcore band offered a positive update after the cancellation of their autumn European tour with Decapitated. KING PARROT will start the tour in Norwich, UK, on November 7th, shortly after the completion of their ongoing North American run with Superjoint and Devildriver.

Igorrr European Tour dates, live footage from Dour Festival

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 8:39 AM (PST)

Igorrr– the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre – certainly made one of the greatest, zaniest and most inspired albums of the year with Savage Sinusoid. Now you can witness the band’s delightful array of various insanities live as they are setting out on a European tour, or watch new footage of their recent performance at the Dour Festival.

Gautier Serre comments: “We’re very excited to take the road for almost two months and to play this music all over Europe. Performing this music provokes always very interesting reactions – some people get it, others don’t. While we are deep into it with the band, it’s going to be a strong experience for sure.” 

Nitrus Oxide is not included but we do have dates and live footage BELOW.

Immolation’s Euro ATONEMENT Tour with Azarath, Melekesh commences

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 12:14 AM (PST)

Hey, it’s 3AM here and I just got back from a late night coffee at a diner with a friend conceptualizing world takeover. Metal Riot and Dying Scene had some hack bot bullshit again but we are back and I am really stoked to remind all our European readers to attend the Immolation ATONEMENT Tour ASAP. This is one of the most perfect live tour line ups for death metal and various extreme extremities of the Fall! Let’s face it – Immolation are friggin’ death metal gods. “Destrucive Currents” seems like a fitting song for the times right now.

Yes, Immolation of course are always amazing and I am really a fan of Polish death lords Azarath’s latest record In Extremis in particular from this line-up of groups at the moment. Completely uncompromising and incredible ferocity, technical but not pompous and still very old school in enraged bashing execution.

Anyway, a moment of metal respect and silence for everyone struggling with hurricane forces right now. And for the fans who need a lift up remember metal is there for you and may your days and nights be full of only the best of it! This tour is a good way to ensure that is what happens to you!!
