Show Review: Parkway Drive -The Glass House: Pomona, CA

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 12:45 PM (PST)

PARKWAY DRIVE Peg I wasn’t sure what to expect when I realized there were only three bands playing. I didn’t know how early or late the show would be over, how long sets would be, or whether or not the bands would lack energy due to the small bill. The Parkway Drive show would be a different animal.

In 2013 I had had “one of the must unbelievable musical experiences” of my life. Gilead Media Musical Festival 2012 was 2 days, 15 hours of live black metal, doom, punk, and drone from 19 bands originating from across the United States; bands such as Northless, Thou, False, Ash Borer, Aseethe, Protestant, Fell VoicesLoss.

When last year’s festival came to an end, I was desperately hoping for a another such event (and I was not alone). Well, early this morning I received word that Gilead Media Music Festival 2014 was locked and loaded. Check out the official announcement here.

Dark Angel to reunite for next year’s Keep It True festival

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 7:51 AM (PST)

dark angelL.A. thrash metal legends Dark Angel have announced that they will reunite for at least one performance at the Keep It True XVII festival, which will take place at Tauberfrankenhalle in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany on April 25-26, 2014. This will be the band’s first show with original vocalist Don Doty since his departure in 1987. Also participating in the reunion are drummer Gene Hoglan, guitarists Eric Meyer and Justin Zych, and bassist Mike Gonzalez.

About the reunion, Doty told Uwe Harms of Germany’s Radio Gehacktes, “I’d like to give the band another chance to see how we used to do it. I have pretty much assembled everybody. It is going to happen. Mike is still playing with one or two other bands, just as Gene is, but they’re gonna go ahead and reschedule with the other bands so they can fit Dark Angel in. Dark Angel will come first. Gene is quite busy, as we all know, and he does have a lot of things going on [including Testament and Dethklok], but seeing this opportunity, he definitely wants to be on board, and he’s very excited about this, as I am.”

He also talked about the future of the band, stating, “We started to book some shows. I’m still waiting for our manager, Rob, to go ahead and see what he has in store for us. We’re gonna take it one step at a time. [In addition to the Keep It True], there’s gonna be a few other [dates] that are gonna be happening; I can’t really release those yet.”

You can listen to the rest of the interview here.

Dark Angel first split up in 1992 and were last active from 2002 to 2005, when they went on hiatus due to vocalist Ron Rinehart’s health problems. Their last record, Time Does Not Heal, was released in 1991.

It’s been more than exactly two years since Rage Against the Machine played their last show, but now, there have been reports that the band is returning for next year’s L.A. Rising, which is set to take place next August. It’s unclear at this time whether those reports are rumors or actual plans, but we’ll keep you updated.

Although they reunited back in 2007, Rage Against the Machine haven’t released any new material since 1999’s The Battle of Los Angeles. Their most recent recording is the covers album Renegades, which was released in 2000, the same year they broke up.

Summer Slaughter Tour Line Up Announced

Posted by NichTheHair on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 12:15 PM (PST)

599614_502962246408433_494654365_nThe line up for the annual Summer Slaughter Tour was announced today and it is fierce. The Dillinger Escape Plan headlines the show, with direct support from Animals As Leaders, Periphery, and Norma Jean. There’s also four more bands, making this tour even more insanely aggressive. Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, and Aeon will round out the roster.

There’s still another being added, by way of a fan voting process. So we now have a nine band touring tornado on the precipice of destroying every city it touches down in. Sumer Slaughter indeed. No dates have been announced yet and we will surely have more on that later.

Go vote for the opening band here, maybe vote for Abiotic. or Vektor. Tough call.

Painmask announce 15 year celebration show (1/5/13).

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 1:33 PM (PST)

If it’s in your blood you don’t stop!

Upstate, NY metalcore mainstays Painmask have announced a 15 year anniversary show on their Facebook. This band have been true believers in the DIY hardcore and metal scene since the 90’s and continue to keep practicing what they preach no matter what the trends show. Though the group took a hiatus in the 00’s, the members have always lived up to the hardcore lifestyle and kept representing strong on the street or in da clubs. They came back strong the last few years with an EP and opened for Soulfly and Fear Factory recently.

I friggin’ love these guys. You should too. Every region worth their salt has a Painmask…that kick ass influential regional band that have opened for or collaborated with many nationals, that band everyone knows who never broke huge but never gave up caring because they STILL know every show is a chance to make your mark or connect with other human beings.

Sleep when you’re dead.

Review: California Metal Fest, November 24th

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 11:08 AM (PST)

Hot, sticky, and sweaty. That is a quick overview of what the California Metal Fest experience was like. For being so late in November—it felt like a hot summer day in July.

Once I got to the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California the line was already wrapped around the building of people dying to get in. It was only ten in the morning.
