Motörhead postpone forthcoming European tour due to Lemmy’s health

October 29th, 2013
by EvilG

Motorhead - Hki17.JPGMotörhead have cancelled their upcoming Euro tour. Here’s an update from Lemmy explaining the situation…

“I have to sadly let you know that Motörhead has had to postpone the forthcoming European tour until early next year, 2014.

We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.

It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn’t quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would’ve disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated…and know that I’m getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.

Thank you all,

Lemmy”

SLAYER WILL PERFORM “OLD SCHOOL SLAYER NIGHT” SET ON ALL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES

October 29th, 2013
by EvilG

“We’re having such a great time rehearsing this ‘Old School’ set, we’ve decided to play it on every one of our upcoming tour dates,” announced Slayer’s Kerry King.

Holed up in Las Vegas rehearsing for their five-week North American tour that kicks off at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tomorrow, Slayer – vocalist/bassist Araya, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and Gary Holt, still filling in for fallen founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman – have been rehearsing many of the band’s most classic and fan-favorite songs, all of which were originally written and released between the band’s inception and the 1990 Gold disc Seasons In The Abyss.

Slayer’s “Old School Slayer Night” set will include tracks from 1983’s Show No Mercy, 1985’s Hell Awaits, the genre-defining and Gold-certified Reign In Blood (1986), 1988’s South of Heaven, also certified Gold, and Seasons.

“The final set list is still coming together,” added Araya, “but we’re going to give the fans what amounts to ‘decades of aggression.’  It’s going to be a great night of music and moshing for everyone.”

Slayer AdMat

 

Confirmed dates for Slayer’s 2013 Fall North American tour are as follows:

Airbourne with Black Spiders @ Limelight Belfast

 Airbourne with Black Spiders

@ Limelight, Belfast

21st October 2013

Review by Melanie Brehaut

Airbourne

Airbourne

If you look in the dictionary under the term ‘rock n roll’ there’s a pretty good chance that there will be a picture of either of tonight’s acts. Sheffield’s Black Spiders and Melbourne, Australia’s Airbourne have both recently released new albums (‘This Savage Land’ from BS in September of this year, while Airbourne revealed ‘Black Dog Barking’ in May), so pairing up to tour again was a bit of a no-brainer, particularly as their previous tour was so successful.

Hybris

at The Black Heart, London

10th October 2013

Review by Anna Dumpe

Photography by Sabrina Dersel

On the 10th of October 2013, a London based technical thrash metal band Hybris threw a party to celebrate the release of their debut album Heavy Machinery that’s out now via Candlelight Records.

HYBRIS-Heavy Machinery

HYBRIS-Heavy Machinery

Hybris are five determined and talented musicians who’ve previously taken part in such bands as Centurions Ghost, Son of Science, Abgott, Uncaused Creation, Reverse Split, Scar Divine, Hannibal and Iron Knights, but now have put their heads together to record an album that’s heavy, ambitious and technically challenging.

Onslaught

Onslaught

I didn’t know what to expect walking into The Garage; it is a small but very nice venue, and from my experiences, the smaller the venue the better it is for a band to interact with the crowd, and each band that performed tonight did just that.

Obituary

American Legion

Wind Gap, PA, October 11, 2013

Review by InfamousButcher, Photos by SheWolf

Tour Poster 2013

For nearly 30 years, Florida death metal pioneers Obituary have been crushing us metalheads with low tuned grinding guitars, slow grooves, and John Tardy’s best in the fucking business growls and groans! Over the past year the Obit guys have toured the US with the Carnival of Death Tour and then the rest of the world with the Rotting Slow Tour, solely playing classic material from their first 3 albums (SLOWLY WE ROT, CAUSE OF DEATH, THE END COMPLETE). Luckily for us North American fans, while working on their 9th studio album Obituary decided to hit the road in Oct for their Northeast American Tour and give us another ghoulish dose of legendary death metal! When it was announced Obituary would play in Wind Gap, PA, I almost shit! That’s close to home for me! Put on the black t-shirt and shit kicker boots and let’s fucking do this!

GWAR at the House of Blues in Hollywood; Friday 18 October 2013

Madness at the Core of Time Tour 2013
GWAR violates the House of Blues in Hollywood!

Friday 18 October 2013

Review and pics by Metalette

I should have worn a white t-shirt to the GWAR show last Friday. It would have been such a nice tie-dye job.

I knew I was in for something special when I saw how crowded the House of Blues already was before the first band even started. The first two or three rows of fans – and many others scattered throughout the venue – were wearing white t-shirts. Of course it didn’t look very metal at first with all these people wearing crisp white tees, but these fans knew what they were doing. It was going to get messy.

KILLER BE KILLED: New Project Featuring Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato, Troy Sanders and David Elitch Signs With Nuclear Blast Entertainment

KILLER BE KILLED has aligned with Nuclear Blast Entertainment to release the group’s debut record in 2014. The mystique-fogged collection is the result of writing sessions, creative and philosophical conversations and an eventual studio lockdown in Los Angeles. All of this has been heretofore hidden from the public, save for interview tidbits that relentlessly drove the heavy music community’s anticipation to a fever pitch.

KILLER BE KILLED is comprised of guitarists Max Cavalera and Greg Puciato, bassist Troy Sanders – all of whom share vocal duties – together with drummer David Elitch. The album was produced/mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA, STEVE EARLE).

“It’s a bit of SABBATH-y doom, a bit of thrash, a bit of hardcore and punk,” Puciato explains, searching for the right words to describe something defiantly unique.

“This is a very special project. It’s a one of a kind thing, with a lot of potential,” asserts Cavalera. “The album is a mix of heavy, fast and melodic songs.”
