Wow, death metal freakers. I think I can safely say we can all rejoice today at this fierce news! One of the all time greats and some fresh and important new blood, both combining innovation and tradition. This is not a tour any extreme metalhead should want to skip out on.Add to My Radar
Well, Morrissey is fucking cancelled but but there is still some good left in Manchester…INGESTED! Way cooler vocals anyway! The ‘World Wide Slam Kings’ are taking their heavy hitting act to Russia and Ukraine coming up and have a new EP called Call Of The Void (not to be confused with the bad ass band named that) out in June via Unique Leader Records.
Drummer Lyn Jeffs commented, “We’ve heard nothing but good things about how Russia and Ukraine slams hard so we are stoked to finally bringing INGESTED to your part of the world. Let’s make this a tour to remember this October!”

Baroness have released the driving and magnificent “Throw Me An Anchor” from Gold & Grey, probably my favorite single from the release yet in turns of energy, performance and composition. Plus, just how good have they gotten at those big melodic choruses? It’s getting unreal. This song also has an almost maddeningly dope proggy outro that somehow reminds me of Blood Brothers and Rush at the same time. Here for it!
Additionally, Baroness will be touring Europe September through November with larger than life rabble rousers Volbeat and mighty hard rockers Danko Jones. As of Friday, May 24th , Tickets will be on sale HERE .Add to My Radar

Edmonton’s STRIKER will be hitting the road this summer for the ‘Deadly Ripping North American Tour’ with Holy Grail and Bewitcher. The 21 date tour will kick off in Phoenix, AZ on July 12th and wrap up in Los Angeles on August 4th (dates listed below). STRIKER is touring in support of their sixth studio album Play To Win released this past October via their independent label Record Breaking Records.
This band, wow…they remind me of everything that first made me fall in love with heavy metal. So good, killer musicianship, fun and not too self-conscious. Just big, killer tunes and massive harmonies paired with squealing guitars and crazy drums and riffs. Fuck yeah! Rock! Wow, thus tour is gonna be a real vocal steel cage match!
The band comments:
“Hitting the road with our brothers of shred Holy Grail this summer to bring our new album Play to Win to fans across North America! This is the summer of the Road Dogs, and we will be doing many more shows across North America and the rest of the world before it’s all said and done. There’s never been a better time to headbang in the front row!”
Champions in blending classic heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, Canadian shredders STRIKER’s sixth studio album Play To Win features 10 fist pounding shredtacular anthems produced by the band plus mixed and mastered by Hendrik Udd (Firewind, Powerwolf, Hammerfall, Delain). The album follows their 2017 self-titled full length that the band supported with tours across Europe and North America with Sonata Arctica, Dark Tranquility, and Warbringer along with festival appearances at 70,000 Tons of Metal, Bang Your Head Festival (Germany) and more to add to their almost 1000 shows performed in their decade-plus career. That fifth studio album also garnered them a nomination from Canada’s JUNO awards, the country’s highest music prize, along with wins at the Edmonton Music Awards and Western Canadian Awards.
Guitarist Tim Brown comments on Play To Win:
“Play to Win: if you want to win you have to play the game. Find the rules and break them. This is our 6th album and 3rd independent release. If we followed the rules and listened to the industry people we’d have gone absolutely nowhere. Play To Win is about listening to yourself, following your own path, and playing that 5th ace hidden in your sleeve. This album is designed to light a fire under your ass and get you moving, and we made sure to get the most modern, ear melting sounds possible. It’s all about where metal is going, not where it has been, and this is our soundtrack to success.”
Album CD order, stream and download available on www.Striker-Metal.com, iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Well, the headline doesn’t lie! Rabble rousers and hater arousers Neckbeard Deathcamp, the band you love or love to hate (the secone one if you are a fash loser), are hitting the road. Even though Kriegmaster from the band writes for us sometimes I just noticed they still don’t have a band profile on our system, haha. How ungrateful are we?! Sorry dudes, I will build that soon but in the meantime I will publish you under the Neck Deep In Filth band module so we don’t have a lot of html nonsense going haywire on this article post, hahaha. You could team up and be The Filthy Neckbeards, a more rustic sounding down to earth name? But I also listed this as a Power Metal article. Just because. Where was I? Where am I?
Oh yeah, a real tour to promote and not just inane commentary! Yes, we are stoked Neckbeard Deathcamp are hitting the road to rock your face and defy their foes, and all the bands on the tour are siiiiick:
If you were only allowed to pick one black metal album to hear for the rest of 2019, I would strongly suggest you choose False's Portent. A dizzying leap forward from an already very talented and rightfully well regarded act, it does not take long into ten minute opener "A Victual to Our Dead Selves" for the song to grab your undivided attention and never let go. Dedicated to the memory of several friends, the record is professional, passionate, heartbreaking and exhilarating. "Rime On The Song Of Returning" is an exceptionally poetic ode to natural abandon that seems to question our size in the scope of the march of time. The band have never sounded more precise, empowered and fiery, like there is a fortune teller at band practice urging them to claim destiny's heights. If this album holds significance of metal's future it is one that honors the best of the past while boding very well for the genre's horizons.
