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

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs 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.

After their second breakup in 2009, Metal Church will reunite once again in January for 70,000 Tons of Metal, which many call “the world’s biggest heavy metal cruise”. The reunion lineup consists of Ronny Munroe on vocals, Kurdt Vanderhoof and Jay Reynolds on guitars, Steve Unger on bass, and Jeff Plate on drums.

Metal Church will do at least two performances on 70,000 Tons of Metal. There, they will perform their 1984 classic self-titled debut album in its entirety. On the other show, there will be a “greatest-hits” set and you can vote for what songs you want the band to play. More details on how to vote will be announced soon.

For the rest of the lineup of next year’s 70,000 Tons of Metal, see here.

There is currently no indication whether the reunion will result in recording a new album or touring extensively. Their last studio album, This Present Wasteland, came out in 2008 on SPV/Steamhammer.

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.”

Wacken Open Air organizers announce first ever European heavy metal cruise

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.
