Disturbed have been back hard riding the wave of success for new album Immortalized after a 4 year break (though I secretly liked Device much better).  Still, you can’t blame Draiman because he and his fellow Disturbed bandmates really built a juggernaut with that group. Personal taste aside, this tour is gonna be huge. Congrats to the Pop Evil guys for showing that a hard rock band can still rise up through the ranks via hard work to land an opening slot on something like this. Also respect to Rob Zombie and Disturbed for trying to give fans a larger tour. People have no ambition these days.

 

Ps. I know we all want to be too cool for school and say we killed nuns listening to Dissection in 4th grade, but without gateway bands and larger arena shows drawing in more populist, thrill seekers…there just isn’t gonna be any money to keep bands able to tour beyond limited scenarios. DIY is awesome and can be amazing but with the added expenses and lack of support these days, most bands can’t cut it.

I’m all for the bigger scene vets helping keep a larger tent open so there is someplace to reach a wider audience (ie. Danzig and Zombie recently did a show with critical darlings Witch Mountain, for example).

Anyways…GET UP AND KILL!

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson announce “Twins of Evil” tour

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 11:09 PM (PST)

marilyn-manson-rob-zombie-tourIt what seems like such an obvious idea, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson will be trekking across America and most of Europe during their “Twins of Evil” tour. These two behemoths of modern metal, bringing a combined 50 years of performing to their fans, are teaming up to give what Zombie is calling “the ultimate abomination.” Rob Zombie’s guitars and drums are now played live by John5 and Ginger Fish, former Manson bandmates, which should prove to be potentially interesting.

“Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It’s happening now,” stated Zombie. “If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour.”

Even stranger, the DJ-alter ego of Korn frontman Johnathan Davis is opening on select dates of this tour. Dubbed J Devil, Davis calls himself the “anti-christ of EDM.”
