Avatar comes back to Grand Rapids on September 13th, with Gemini Syndrome, and First Decree, to rock the Intersection. Last year, I saw Avatar for the first time, at Rock on the Range. And yes, every time I'd heard the band name before seeing their videos, I always pictured them as super tall blue people playing guitars. (I'm easily influenced by the media.)
We need a good metal show soon! I feel like it has been awhile, then this one popped up on the Intersection website.
I proceeded to get pretty excited, cause all of these bands are kick ass!
Check out this sweet show making it's way back to the Intersection!
Regardless of the crappy weather, metalheads did their best to flock to The Intersection to see a rare appearance from a band who doesn't make it stateside very often.
Arch Enemy ROCKED the Intersection last night!
I have been looking forward to this show ever since it was announced quite a few months ago! Arch Enemy, Kreator, Starkill and Huntress will dominate the Intersection on Nov. 20th!
I did get some kinda bummer news though on my end...
I still pride myself on the fact that I get the opportunity to interview pretty much any metal band I want. From super famous ones to metal bands that are still finding their place in the genre. Up and comers to the metal circuit is Huntress. They have 2 albums to date at this point and Jill Janus sure knows how to wail. A couple of years ago, I was able to interview them.
There are so many shows coming to the Grand Rapids area, and they are all going to be glorious! Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, GWAR, You Me At Six, etc. There are just a buttload of shows coming! One of them though is one I have been waiting on for years and it's finally happening!
A month or two ago, an amazing show that features Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Battlecross, and Huntress came to the Intersection. I started listening to Huntress and I knew I had to meet this band. Little did I know I was also going to do Jager shots and sing the NBA Jam theme song with them.
