yobDooming mobsters YOB have announced a tour that will find them hitting the road alongside Enslaved and Ecstatic Vision. Holy hell. Dude. That is an amazing tour with just YOB and Enslaved. I mean, those two are going to absolutely kill it. I say this because I don’t know Ecstatic Vision, but their name makes me think of the last A Life Once Lost album, which makes me sad. Fuck, that’s off topic. Check out the tour dates below.      Continue reading

Casket Closing: PALLBEARER Preform New Material Live

My Arkansas brethren Pallbearer have crushed millions of minds since their inception and I’ve watched them progress as a band for quite some time now. It amazes me that a band from our state could rise to the level of touring alongside Enslaved. It’s just crazy. Speaking of the Enslaved tour, apparently Pallbearer have been caught preforming a new song live and guess what…     Continue reading

PALLBEARER And ENSLAVED Announce North American Tour

Metal legends Enslaved and doom stalwarts Pallbearer have announce that they will be hitting the road together in late January and February for a 20-date tour of North America. This tour should not only be highly anticipated, but fucking destructive. Both bands excel in their own genre and the difference in style should make for a fantastic show. It has been announced that Ancient VVisdom will be tagging along as support for the entire tour. You can see the dates after the jump. Continue reading

DESTROYERS OF THE FAITH: Tour Looks… Interesting.

Hmm.. Cannibal Corpse, Enslaved, Triptykon and Job For a Cowboy are a strange combination for a tour. I mean, it’s a short tour, but it’s still odd. Oh well, I’m not a publicist or a tour manager, so I guess it doesn’t matter what I say. Anyway, this five date trek will kick off on March 7th in Bristol. Yeah, that’s about it. Not really too much to say about this one. Sponsored by Metal Hammer.

All Of You Who Wanted To See GHOST On That ENSLAVED Tour.. Too Bad.

Due to some fuck-ups with their visas, it seems that Swedish occult rockers Ghost will not be able to make the tour they had coming up with Enslaved and Alcest. The band was quoted in saying that:

“Due to some last minute complications with our visas, we have been forced to cancel our North American tour.

“We are sorry towards the other bands on the tour, Enslaved and Alcest. And we are most of all tremendously sorry towards all of our fans.

“This is truly beyond our control and we are making everything within our (His) powers to be able to come back to the US as soon as possible and perform for all of you. Our most malicious of wishes.”

The band has also stated that they would do their best to return for a fall tour in the future. You can read the full articlehere although there is not much more to tell. This would really suck for someone who was planning on seeing them. I, on the other hand, weren’t so I’m not brokenhearted.

Video Review: Dawn of Ashes’ “Transformation Within Fictional Mutation”

Well, this video isn’t as disturbing as it is creepy throughout. The beginning, with homie sifting through entrails on the floor is kinda disgusting, but no worse than some Clive Barker shit. I actually enjoyed the video. All the dudes dressed all bloody and gross and shit. It’s great. I love the keyboard solo. Dude is slamming those keys. Fantastic video. I hadn’t heard this band before this video, but I like it. Like symphonic blackened death shit. Crazy.

Click here to see the video on Bloody Disgusting.

Dawn of Ashes’ new album, Genocide Chapters is out now on Metal Blade Records. They are also on tour with Blood Red Throne, Dimmu Borgir and Enslaved. Sick.

Who’s On The Road and Where They Gon’ Be.

There seem to be an ass load of bands on tour nowadays. The  Acacia Strain kicked off the To Catch a Predatour with The Red Chord, the Contortionist, Terror and Gaza, Danzig’s coveted Blackest of The Black Tour (featuring Marduk, Toxic Holocaust, Possessed and Withered. Skeletonwitch are out with Landmine Marathon and Withered for The North American Skullsplitter Tour and then with Job For a Cowboy and Misery Index in December. There are so many amazing bands out on the road, it’s fucking crazy.
