This summer is so far, turning out the be the "Most Metal Summer of All Time." So many great shows are showing up to the Grand Rapids area, my ears will be bleeding from the upcoming metal massacres. Not only are bands like Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, and Behemoth coming to the Intersection...you can add Killswitch Engage to that list.
THIS IS THE SHOW I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR! Just look at that lineup! If you are headbanging metal head like myself, this is ranks up there as one of the 'SICKEST' shows to hit The Intersection! I have been waiting for these bands to come to Grand Rapids. I would have never thought all in one show!
Last time Mastodon graced us with their presence, they brought with them an arsenal of metal sharing the stage with Opeth. The show SOLD OUT! The 'metal' was powerful that night, and Mastodon tore up the stage. Apparently, they could not get enough of Grand Rapids, so they have decided to make the trip back. This time though, they are bringing MORE METAL with MACHINEHEAD!
Before a band get’s big, they have to start off as a local band. Listeners today are getting “too used” to hearing the top hits on the radio. As a band, you need to start somewhere, and radio station’s don’t look at local metal enough. WGRD is putting an end to that! For this week’s LOCAL METAL MOMENT, we are checking out Through The Ashes!
Who would have thought that you could combine Metal and Humor together and get something this awesome. Ever heard of Psychostick? No? Well, that's just sad! Psychostick is a very underrated band that you need to check out, and they are coming to Club Envy in Muskegon!
Legendary Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has just detonated a pipe bomb regarding the thrash band's business dealings and internal turmoil. One week ago, on Valentine's Day, Lombardo was notified by the band's lawyers that his services behind the kit would not be needed for Slayer's upcoming Australian tour dates. The entire story feels beyond odd and incredibly cold, and Lombardo has detailed the sudden decision in an official statement.
The year of 2013 is starting to rev up with some pretty sweet shows and tours! Good thing that a majority of these shows will be making stops here in a Grand Rapids, like Testament, The Devil Wears Prada, Lacuna Coil, etc. Let's add Hatebreed to that roster shall we?
