Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival 2013 Preview

June 30th, 2013
by EvilG

As it’s nearly time to pack our bags with festival essentials and make our way to Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival 2013, we wanted to sum up why exactly we are so damn excited about it.

As most of you probably know already, Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival is a four-day outdoor celebration of all things heavy metal. This year it takes place from August 8th to August 11th of 2013, in Catton Hall in Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire England.

Most importantly, what makes Bloodstock one of the coolest festivals of 2013 is the excellent line-up that would please any kind of heavy metal fan, whether you’re into death metal, thrash metal, power metal or anything else. The three headliners over the weekend are going to be no one else but the living legend that is King Diamond, Slayer and Lamb Of God. And that is only the beginning…

 Death To All But Metal – Steel Panther rocks the Sunset Strip

Review by Metalette

I love hair metal, and I’m not afraid to say it. My love for it goes back to discovering Mӧtley Crϋe at 13 years old, and delving into the whole world of the 80s glam scene as a result. It was pure rock’n’roll fun, and I got my best friends into it, and we ran around like little hair-metal chickies and thumbed our noses at all the kids listening to Panic! At the Disco. So I consider hair metal to be my metal “roots”, if you will, because it steered me on the path of good music at an impressionable age. Now, the only thing that makes me happier than seeing guys in kilts and war-paint onstage is seeing a stage full of guys with giant hair and shiny spandex pants. I’m even the proud owner of the “American Hair Metal encyclopedia”, which will always have a cherished space on my decorative bookshelf. Read the rest of this entry »

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Take Break From New Album To Perform Live Dates In The US And South America

June 26th, 2013
by EvilG
Corrosion Of Conformity "Animosity"

Corrosion Of Conformity “Animosity”

Following their recent performance at the Fifth Annual Scion Fest in Memphis, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY has announced live assaults for August. In addition to their already planned participation at Gwar’s annual BBQ, the trio will perform a headlining show in Wilmington, Delaware before heading to South America for a string of dates. The August shows mark a break from continued work in the recording studio on the band’s new album, expected for release in early 2014.

“We need a little escape from the studio,” comments vocalist/bassist Mike Dean. “We thought it would be good to see the light of the day a little bit. We are excited to play Brazil, Peru, Columbia, and Argentina for the first time ever. Of course returning to Mexico City and playing Gwar’s BBQ will be highlights for our summer as well. The new material is sounding really good but it’s time to get the perspective provided only by playing in front of a live audience. And we are talking about some very live audiences in this case.” Read the rest of this entry »
