Elantris to open for Epica on North American dates

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 10:59 AM (PST)

Ohio’s Elantris feature beauty and the beast style vocal switch offs, semi-raw yet symphonic arrangements and a hard work ethic that has found the band open for Xandria and Sonata Arctica, among others, before. They have been compared favorably to Kamelot. Elantris will support their recently-released debut album, This Sacrifice with a set of dates that will also feature Insomnium, Lacuna Coil, and headliners Epica. Those are all major players in the scene and any one of them would be a challenge to share a stage with, but Elantris seem up for it:

“We are very excited for the opportunity to perform with such incredible bands. With our combined powers, we see no reason we can’t reshape the hearts and souls of everyone present at the shows. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play on a fantastic tour and get to play our music at so many great venues, in front of so many incredible fans.” 

“Our main goal on this tour is to stimulate the economy by increasing the production of mops and buckets. These will be vital in dealing with the increased sweat and face melting that occurs at most venues due to extreme headbanging and joyous feeling that occurs from witnessing raw epicness!”

Dates and a taste of the band’s sound below.

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at 11:46 AM (PST)

Canada’s The Birthday Massacre remain a very fun live band and are taking to the road in May to support new seventh album Under Your Spell. It is easy to fumble the cartoony goth pop dark rock genre but this band has always been cool and enjoyable on many levels, way more than just a shtick. The new record aims to hit all their signature notes while being one of the most emotional in their career.

Tour kicks off on May 18th at Toronto’s The Opera House and circles the continent, hitting cities such as Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, NYC and Boston. (full dates below)

I mean what I am trying to say is, smoke she is a rising / Fire, yeah smoke on the horizon.

It is no big secret that we feel Woe‘s Hope Attrition is the American black metal release to beat of the moment, a high bar set for 2017. The new Nightbringer is gonna be awesome as well, but we aren’t really here to pit bands against one another, rather celebrate people making strong art.

Anyhow, if you want to see some real (and likely reluctant to take on the mantle, but nonetheless deserving) ambassadors of some of the best in USBM and you happen to be in Europe at the moment, the Woe tour with Germany’s Ultha kicks off today.

In related news, WOE recently celebrated the ten-year anniversary of the Absinthe Invocation demo, written in a single, drunken night on April 4th, 2007. “The ten years since have been surprising, to say the least,” comments band founder Chris Grigg. “To all who have listened and supported, we thank you. The demo is free on Bandcamp. It is sloppy and raw but hints at what would come.” Check out Absinthe Invocation at THIS LOCATION.

2013’s Necrocracy was probably my favorite overall death metal album of that year, sort of akin to the Heartwork of Exhumed albums, in my humbly opinionated opinion. Suffice to say, it fuckin’ burns the house down and kills everything in sight still alive. Now Exhumed, arguably one of the top three greatest gore bands ever, are finally doing a proper follow up after having first revisiting and revised their classic Gore Metal with an updated recent re-recording.

The album of new material however will be entitled Death Revenge (that sounds pretty metal to us) and will see a late 2017 release via Relapse Records. From Ringworm to The Obsessed and Ecstatic Vision, Relapse continues to support an awesome variety of crucial, weird and heavy bands. 

 

Issues founding Exhumed guitarist/vocalist/swell guy Matt Harvey, “We entered the studio April 1st with our buddy Jarrett Pritchard (Gruesome, Goatwhore) to start the process and no, this is not an elaborate April Fool’s joke… All Guts, No Glory was more of a straight-up speeding attack, Necrocracy had a bit more focus on groove and incorporating some mid-paced stuff in there, and this one is gonna be a lot darker. It’s a concept album, which is a first for us, so expect some new twists on our tried-and-true formula: one part late ’80s death metal, half a cup of German/Canadian/Bay Area thrash, a dash of grindcore, crossover, and crust, and the occasional, well-concealed, Hall And Oates rip-off.”

 

In related news, EXHUMED has confirmed a string of European tour dates this June which include a performance at Hellfest and follow their North American appearances at Modified Ghost Festival II in Vancouver and the Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore in May.

 

EXHUMED’s entire catalog can be streamed via Bandcamp HERE.

Junius dates with InAeona to commence soon

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 7:17 AM (PST)

An inspired East Cost short run pairing between the melodic and yet massive styles of Junius and InAeona is just what the doctor ordered to start Spring with a kick to the crotch. Junius are supporting an excellent new record Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light and InAeona are between releases but keeping the juices flowing as they contemplate what new material will follow the brilliant catharsis of Force Rise The Sun (which was on our 2015 top 5 year end list, fyi). My friend Michael Guthaus’s driving and chaotic band Clover open the Kingston show.

04/17 Boston, MA – Great Scott
04/18 Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery
04/19 Philadelphia, PA – Kung Fu Necktie
04/20 Kingston, NY – BSP Kingston
04/21 Pittsburgh, PA – Black Forge Coffee House

Cliterati kick off West Coast Tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, March 30, 2017 at 10:49 AM (PST)

We wanna take an extra moment out of our busy schedules thinking about death metal as we vainly deny the onset of adulthood here to shout out crust punk moshtastic monarchs of the moment Cliterati here as they kick off their new West Coast tour. Ami Lawless fuckin’ rules and this band is one of the best. They already feel like a real, cohesive unit in a short amount of time. That’s what happens when you combine good people with a real punk and metal pedigree/actually caring about what you’re doing. So much more refreshing than the 800th million stale over processed tech death/deathcore promo or interchangeable wankers.

A kick ass recent interview we did with Cliterati was one of the ones that sadly was murdered when we suffered a site malware attack that ended up in us losing about a year of content here…and it was  irreplaceable due to the original recording being gone and me not having backed it up well enough like a fucking asshole. Much chagrin and sorrow…BUT, we can tell you to check the shit out of this tour and become ten times cooler in the process just for being there! The band have a lot in store working with beloved and true af label Tank Crimes, so stay alert!

Nola punks Classhole to commence West Coast Tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 1:27 PM (PST)

New Orleans’ grimy punk problem children CLASSHOLE will commence a West Coast tour. Slated to take place from March 27th to April 12th, the sixteen-date journey includes performances alongside Swedish hardcore act DS-13, and Cleveland, Ohio-based hardcore band, Fuck You Pay Me. CLASSHOLE will be joined by drummer Jorge Herrera (Despise You, ACxDC) this run filling in for Paul Webb.

CLASSHOLE features alumni from Eyehategod, Hawg Jaw, Outlaw Order, The Mystick Krewe Of Clearlight, Mountain Of Wizard, Mangina, Tirefire, haarp, and more. The devastatingly real band released their self-titled debut via The Compound Recs in conjunction with the band’s own Terror Cult imprint last year. Already issued in a limited vinyl run via Terror Cult, the CD edition comes as a four-panel digipak featuring an alternate layout and lyric liner, plus bonus video footage of the band performing live in NOLA.

Classhole is out NOW via The Compound Recs. For physical orders point your browser to THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE.

I have never seen them live but if they are half as amped up as they sound on the recordings, this tour will take one of your eyes and several teeth but most likely it’ll be worth it.

Modern Feminist punk trailblazers War On Women are one of the most important acts in the scene right now, especially in the hateful age of Trump. The rise of rape culture on the Warped Tour from some scene bands was a frightening trend and destructive on so many levels, so it is excellent to see the tour booking a band that stands in such firm opposition to that kind of behavior.

Some other great bands this year include Beartooth, Candiria and Barbed Wire Dolls.

War On Women commented:

 “Playing all 40 dates of this year’s Warped Tour is a great opportunity for us as a band to use our privilege for something positive. We don’t have to deal with the day-to-day struggles that many people of color, LGBTQIA folks, people with disabilities, or undocumented people have to face just to exist, so we feel like we’re in a unique position to infiltrate what could be a hostile environment, and ensure that women’s voices are heard, from an intersectional feminist perspective. Safer space/DIY/art space shows can be transforming and life-affirming, even vital to people’s survival, but we’ve always believed that we have the ability to take on the unsafe spaces, and we hope that our involvement can lead to a more victim-centered, and overall welcoming, environment for all.”

 

Check out War On Women on tour all summer long on Warped Tour, and buy advance tickets to the tour here as well as to the “Creating Safer Spaces: You Have the Power to Shape Your Scene” workshop here.
