Tickets go on sale this Friday August 2nd.

Said verbose front-thing Oderus Urungus, “Our loyal slaves have been laboring ceaselessly to create the ultimate GWAR show, and for this they have received nothing but abuse and torment.

Get ready world…GWAR is coming!”

WRETCHED SOUL – VERONICA; DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED 9th SEPTEMBER 2013 / UK TOUR IN NOVEMBER

August 2nd, 2013
by EvilG
WRETCHED SOUL - Veronica

WRETCHED SOUL – Veronica

Wretched Soul is a modern sounding Death/Thrash Metal outfit formed in late 2008 in the historic city of Canterbury, Kent. Following periods of relentless gigging around the UK, the band has honed an exciting and unique sound all its own, with their potent melding of Death, Thrash and Traditional Heavy Metal offering brutality and melody in equal measure. Described by ZT magazine as “refreshingly difficult to categorise,” they were also hailed in the June 2013 issue of Terrorizer magazine as “one of the UK’s most promising underground Thrash bands.”

Having made a massive impact on crowd and critics alike at the Bloodstock Open Air festival in 2012, Wretched Soul are fast-gaining a national reputation for their intense and genuinely engaging live shows. Having recently shared stages with Orange Goblin, Savage Messiah, Vreid, Eastern Front and Flayed Disciple among others, a number of shows are currently being lined up for the summer and autumn of 2013, while the band have already been confirmed to perform at Norway’s Hostile Terrortory Festival in January 2014 and the UK’s Alt-Fest 2014.

The time has come soon to wrap up the magical & memorable one-and-a-half year `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013! We still have three shows left, one of them being at the legendary Wacken Open Air Metal Festival on the 3rd of August. This show will be something extra special, since it will be released later this year on DvD/Blu-ray, together with a massive `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2012-2013 documentary. Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen, has been nothing but incredible during her time in Nightwish on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film!

CARCASS: North American Tour Dates Announced

CARCASS: North American Tour Dates Announced

Disinterred British extreme metal legends, CARCASS, will embark on a select amount of intimate headlining North American shows this September in support of their upcoming sixth full-length release, Surgical Steel. “Well we thought we’d play a few small key shows, kinda like the vibe we had in London earlier this year,” commented bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker. “Maybe we’re being a bit optimistic thinking we can fill these venues? Well to make sure we do we’re bringing along some old friends & bands who will probably blow us away. We’re too much of a bunch of tight wads to throw a record release party so this is the closest you’ll get – come on down, and bring your receipt with the new album purchase and demand a refund!”

WINTERSUN @ The Garage

August 1st, 2013
by Metal-Rules.com UK Team

Wintersun

@ The Relentless Garage, Islington

16th July 2013

Review by Victoria Fenbane

Photography by Michelle Murphy

Wintersun brought their Finnish melodic death metal to the UK/Ireland for a seven city tour, kicking off in London, in the middle of a heat wave.  A 30 minute delay to the headline set, provides a welcome opportunity to cool down in the air-conditioned side bar, escaping the sold out venue itself, which is without even a hint of air-con and thus unbearable when at its 650 capacity.
