Behold Your Tour of Tours: Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth!!!

The scuttlebutt for this one has been making the rounds for a couple of days but I generally try to wait for 100% official press confirmation announcements since its a good policy. That being said, the Apocalypse will be set in motion this summer based on the fact that Slayer will be doing a headlining run with support from Lamb Of God and Behemoth. Check out the full on scoop below. I’ll be back with closing thoughts later.

The Press Release:
SLAYER…LAMB OF GOD…BEHEMOTH…Spreading The Apocalypse This Summer
LOS ANGELES, CA – Tuesday, February 28, 2017 — There are many perilous ways one can spend time off – Volcano-boarding down Cerro Negro, Nicaragua’s active volcano, or maybe bungee jumping from a helicopter over the bubbling crater of Chile’s Villarrica. How about a visit to Sao Paulo’s Snake Island, home of some 4000 golden lancehead vipers whose venom can melt human flesh, or shark diving without a cage in South Africa. But nothing is quite as hazardous or risky as a night in the pit at a Slayer concert. Add to that the ferociousness of Lamb of God and Behemoth, and you’ve got a Satan-approved triple bill of Biblical proportions.

The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12 in Bemidji, MN, winding up in Phoenix, AZ on August 20. Slayer and Lamb of God will also play Wisconsin’s Rock Fest 2017 (7/13) and Rock USA 2017 (7/15), and then meet up with Behemoth at the Chicago Open Air Festival on July 16. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3; log on to www.slayer.net/tour for all purchasing details.

Kerry King/Slayer Quote:
“As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!” Continue reading Behold Your Tour of Tours: Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth!!!

“Sventevith (Storming Near The Baltic)” (remastered) by Behemoth

Artist: Behemoth
Title: “Sventevith – Storming Near The Baltic (remastered)
Label: Metal Mind Productions
Release Date: 6/6/2005
Genre: Black Metal
Rating: 3.5

Thanks to the folks at Metal Mind Productions we can take a trip back into the not too distant past to find the origins and debut by Poland’s mightiest export, the one and only Behemoth. Originally released in 1995, the album “Sventevith (Storming Near The Baltic) finds the band not as the crushing Death Metal group we all know today but instead as a brutalizing Black Metal enterprise who show one didn’t need to have their origins in Norway or Sweden. Led by Nergal, who not only sings but plays all guitars and bass, this album is a solid introduction to the band and their contributions to the then still growing Black Metal movement. As you listen you can hear similarities to the giants of the genre such as Immortal and perhaps a little Dimmu Borgir as well but what’s more important was how impressive it actually was with their being among the few such acts from this region of the day. If you closed your eyes and knew nothing of the band you heard you would totally assume this was a by product of the Norwegian artisans. The tale told seems to be about Slavic folklore and their history and one can read deeper into this based on the provided lyrics in the booklet (the white font on black is a tad tricky on the eyes I must admit).
