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.
Speechless is a common word used in situations where you just think to yourself....HOLY CRAP! Recently released from a Czech prison, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God promised that they would reschedule their cancelled Lamb of God/Dethklok tour with a big tour. Turns out he wasn't joking...
If you love metal like I do, you most likely have heard of GWAR! These guys are not from earth, they are from another world! They have decided that before they take over this puny world, they are going to dominate North America one venue at a time! So why not make a stop in Grand Rapids, MI?
There are some bands that refuse to go away! What you think that's a bad thing? Well your crazy! Man, if this year wasn't already full of amazing bands hitting the road for tours, out of left field comes effin' Iron Maiden. Planning a 2012 tour!
The concert year of 2012 is really starting to heat up! Heading out in support of the new albums they have all either released or are in the process of releasing, 2012 seems to be a promising year. There is a little surprise to this tour though....what might that be?
Coming from the country of Germany, Rammstein is nothing more than PURE METAL. When you hear this band, all you can think of is hard riffs, pyro, even more pyro, and more metal. Seems like they want to bring this to America!
This past Saturday at the Deltaplex, Hatebreed took the show by storm and showed Grand Rapids how to DESTROY EVERYTHING! Supports Five Finger Death Punch and All That Remains for the 'Share the Welt' Tour. I sat in with lead vocalist of Hatebreed Jamey Jasta as we discussed current plans for Hatebreed, a World Tour, and overall craziness on the road.
