The record label that has brought you such awesomeness as Gwar, Amon Amarth, Cannibal Corpse, and of course the Goo-Goo Dolls, is hosting a free show to celebrate it’s 30th Anniversary.  The event is being held Saturday September 15, 2012 at The Glass House in Pomona, CA and basically you need to RSVP for the event by clicking here, and then you need to make sure to get there super early since admission is limited to capacity.  If you make it in you’ll get to see Six Feet Under, Cattle Decapitation, Battlecross, Gypsyhawk, and Pilgrim for the awesome price of free.

It’s been a long road for Metal Blade and a lot of their sucess has been attributed to working with just about any band that they like, no matter what they sound like.  Founder Brian Slagel has been quoted as saying:

“To this day if I really like a band and if the staff really like it then no matter what they sound like we want to work with them, I’ve always liked a wide variety of sounds in metal, which I think is reflected in our roster, and I’ve never gotten into trying to sign a lot of bands that sound the same. I would personally rather find something that nobody else has heard of before, something that’s really different from what’s going on, and put that out.”

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 7:15 AM (PST)

First things first, this sounds amazing and even though I’m going to Wacken again this year, I’m already jealous of anyone that gets to go on this.  Not many details have been released, but wow is this going to be cool.  It’s going to be a 7 day affair with more than 20 bands and all sorts of other perks.  The ship will be stopping in a few different ports and you’ll be able to book all sorts of extra activities for when it does.  PLUS, food and drinks will be included in the ticket price!  There will also be things like meet-and-greets, metal karaoke, movie nights, metal comedy, workshops for musicians and much more.

No bands have been announced as of yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as any info becomes available.  Also, if anyone wants to buy me a ticket or give me money for one I’ll be accepting donations starting now.

Exumer to play Rock Hard Festival in Europe this September

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 6:05 PM (PST)

German thrashers Exumer have been confirmed to appear at this year’s Rock Hard Festival in Milan, Italy, on September 15, 2012. Alongside them will be Danish thrashers Artillery, who have just come off the co-headlining “South American Damnation” tour with Exumer through Argentina, Chile and Brazil.

Vocalist Mem V. Stein commented:

“Our ‘South American Damnation’ tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn’t want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe.”

Exumer’s latest album Fire & Damnation was released April 6th in Europe and April 10th in North America through Metal Blade Records.

Rivals Sons confirm shows with Guns N’ Roses

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 12:26 PM (PST)

Rivals Sons have confirmed that they will be the main support act for Guns N’ Roses for two shows in Europe this coming summer.

The band will be opening for Guns N’ Roses on June 4th at Ahoy in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and then at the Warsteiner Hockey Park in Mönchengladbach, Germany on June 8th.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday had these comments to make:

“What a great, great opportunity to get these shows supporting Guns N’ Roses! Germany has been great to us, and this will only help us reach out to so many more people over there. As far as Guns goes… I remember the first time those guys were ever on MTV, me and my best mate were watching. A total shock to the system, and to me and my friends’ lives. We were really young little dudes, but we already loved our rock ‘n’ roll, and Guns just reeked of reality and grit… I mean they were literally very dirty. And we LOVED it. They ushered in a lot more ‘real’ and dirtiness to a scene that had become way too fruity-pants. As a wee guitar-playing lad, I couldn’t get enough of Appetite For Destruction and Lies. Ready to see and hear some of those first tunes played live!”
