Killswitch-Engage-2013Massachusetts metalcore veterans, Killswitch Engage will be playing a special show in NYC this Saturday night, October 12, at Santos Party House.  They will be performing as part of the second annual CBGB Festival, with openers, Eye Ra Haze.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning, Tuesday, October 8, at 10AM ET.  They can be bought through Ticket Web for $25.  If you have previously purchased a ticket to Killswitch Engage’s Roseland or Starland Ballroom dates with Lamb of God, you are eligible to claim an autographed item from from the band at the forthcoming Santos Party House show.

“I am excited to be a part of the CBGB fest,” proclaims vocalist Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage. “The music that came out of the early punk and hardcore scene changed my life and CBGBs was a big part of that scene. Playing a smaller intimate venue like Santos Party House gives us a chance to change stuff up and give fans a different KsE show with a diversified set list. Saturday will be a night to remember!”

Killswitch Engage is touring in support of their sixth release, Disarm the Descent, released this past spring off of Roadrunner Records.

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.

Rage Against the Machine to return for next year’s L.A. Rising?

Posted by Metal Dude on Friday, August 9, 2013 at 4:21 PM (PST)

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.

Posted by Metal Dude on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 4:24 PM (PST)

Morbid Angel have been denied entry to Canada and will have to cancel two scheduled shows there tonight (in Montreal) and tomorrow (in Toronto), which are part of their ongoing tour with Dark Funeral, Grave, and Vadim Von. Here’s what the band had to say:

“Regretfully, as much as we wanted to continue the musical onslaught, the Canadian immigration officers at the border had other intentions. Canada is NOT HAPPENING.”

The band’s latest album Illud Divinum Insanus was released in June 2011 through Season of Mist.
