Slayer / Gojira / 4ARM

Big Four, Calgary AB

Photos and Review by Monika Deviat
The concrete confines of the Big Four building in Calgary Alta., are not the ideal choice for a concert venue – especially for legends like Slayer, a band you would want to hear no matter where you are standing in a venue. However, on November 3, 2013 over 2,500 fans came out to see Slayer deliver an old school set on their first North American tour since the passing of Jeff Hanneman in May this year. French heavy hitters Gojira and Australia’s 4Arm were support for the tour.
Bloodstock Open Air 2013
@ Catton Park, Derbyshire, UK
8th – 11th August 2013

Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.
Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!
This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.
Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

Hellfest Festival 2013
@ Clisson, France
21st– 23rd June 2013
It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.
Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.
Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.
Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.
Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

Interview By Ashlinn Nash

Gojira are known internationally as a band with a back catalogue of songs laced with shots of adrenaline in each colossal chord, with stunning live performances to match.
The four piece from Bayonne, Southwest France, who’s musical themes direct from their native surroundings of wildness, the band, with newest album L’ Enfant Savage (The wild child), have gone back to the core of influence and re-discovered the rawness energy of inspiration and created a smasher.

Ghost & Gojira with The Defiled & Feed the Rhino
@ Brixton Academy
24th March 2013
Review by Ashlinn Nash
Photography by Graham Hilling
The theme of most Jagermiester tours is that of the eclectic, mixing a variety of bands together that make for an interesting and diverse show. Ranging in style with previous line ups with bands such as Skindred, Therapy? , Black Spiders, Slayer and Korn among others. Tonight the line up diversity is no different, with bands from Feed the Rhino right up to the occult heavy Ghost. The Brixton academy’s lush interior dripped in Jagermiester banners, along with a crowd clutching as many Jagermiester shots as possible, all ready for a metal party.

If the power of the deep compels you, extreme metal sensation Gojira should be at the top of your playlist. The quintet are storming London’s KoKo tonight, on the back of 2012’s release, L’Enfant Sauvage.

Here comes a review of the great Copenhell festival that took place during two slightly rainy days in the middle of June. Acts that performed included Slayer, Anthrax, Lamb Of God, Immortal, Saxon, Gojira etc.. Lets take a closer look at what the festival had to bring…..
Gojira @ 02 Islington Academy
27th June 2012
Tonight is a night full of anticipation, due to the headliners, Gojira having released a latest offering “l’enfant sauvage” (Wild child in English), which is a fresh from the press slab of genius; tonight’s focus is on the new selection of ear candy treats from both bands!
With support to night from the home grown, quintet The Safety fire, who’s Album “Grind the Ocean” came out earlier in the year. Set to be a night of new materials from both bands all delivered to us in the modest 02 Islington academy, the headliners are a band no stranger to intimate shows, this is set to be a delight for all the senses.

ADULT SWIM STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:
In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the band’s upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks.
LAMB OF GOD STATEMENT REGARDING UPCOMING TOUR:
Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.
LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.
The 4th of June 2012
The massive touring Sonisphere festival landed in Finland for the fourth time in a row. The first two Sonisphere festivals were arranged on the other side of Finland. For financial reasons the festival was moved to the capital, Helsinki, last year when Slipknot headlined the one-day event with several support acts. Obviously the turn-out at last year’s festival didn’t please the organization and for this year Metallica were recruited to headline. Nearly 50,000 tickets were sold like hot cakes when the line-up of Sonisphere was announced. Besides Metallica, Machine Head, Amorphis, Gojira, Ghost, and finally Hardcore Superstar had been booked to appear at the one-day festival on one stage. Of course, the celebration of Metallica’s multi-million selling BLACK album was the main bait to attract the audience.

Special Guest GOJIRA Joins for 34-Show North American Tour Beginning August 1
This summer, two of the biggest names in metal, LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK, will join forces for a 34-show North American tour kicking off on August 1 in Seattle, Wash. The three-time Grammy® Award-nominated band from Richmond, VA and the world’s most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse animated series will shred their way through cities throughout in the U.S. and Canada ending September 15 in San Francisco, CA.
The upcoming DETHKLOK and LAMB OF GOD with GOJIRA summer tour marks the return of LAMB OF GOD to North American stages where they will support their latest album Resolution, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart when it was released earlier this year. As in tours past, Brendon Small, the co-creator and composer behind DETHKLOK, will bring the animated band to life on stage each night alongside an all-star band including the legendary Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally. Building on the success of Dethklok: The Dethalbum and Dethklok: The Dethalbum II from Williams Street Records, Small is currently in the studio working on the band’s third album release scheduled for later this year. Additionally, new episodes from the fourth season of Metalocalypse currently air on Adult Swim Sundays at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT).
Joining the co-headliners at each stop along the tour will be special guest GOJIRA, the French metal band that will perform songs from its upcoming album release, L’Enfant Sauvage, which will be released in the U.S. on June 26 with Roadrunner Records. Pitchfork describes the new album as “breathless and awesome.”
