Soilwork @ Gramercy Theatre (7/16/2010)

Logo - Soilwork

Artist: Soilwork
Venue: Gramercy Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: Death Angel, Augury, Mutiny Within, Swashbuckle
Date: 7/16/2010
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

It’s been a little over a year since we last saw Soilwork headlining the stages of the venues in NYC and for some that was a good thing because there was a time when the band was performing too often and forced to play a lot of the same material. Believe me, no one wants to get bored when they see the name Soilwork on the marquee so the fifteen month breather was going to make this something many of the Metal Republics fans were looking forward to. The show was going to be exciting for a number of different reasons and the first was that it was an 80% Nuclear Blast Records artist roster and found Death Angel as direct support while both Augury and Swashbuckle performed earlier sets. It was rounded out by Roadrunner Records newcomers Mutiny Within. With so much Metal to absorb I arrived super early on this hot summer night to be able to witness the onslaught in full. Here is how the “Panic Over North America” went for those who did not manage to secure a ticket.

Vader @ Blender Theater at Gramercy (11/7/2009)

Logo - Vader

Artist: Vader
Venue: Gramercy Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: Decrepit Birth, Augury, Warbringer, Swashbuckle,
Date: 11/7/2009
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

The last time Vader had toured in the USA they were participating in the Summer Slaughter Tour and were sharing the stage with Kataklysm, Black Dahlia Murder and Cryptopsy along with a host of other up and coming powerhouse Metal bands. The band sounded fantastic but would only play a meager twenty minute set and this left the audience screaming for more and also a little bit cheated since many had actually come to the show exclusively for the Vader appearance. Since that time the band has joined up with Nuclear Blast Records and just recently released their latest album “Necropolis” and armed with this would embark on the Masters Of Death tour with label mates Decrepit Birth, Warbringer, The Amenta, Augury and Rose Funeral. That was a seriously heavy roster and we were happy to be a part of it. Here is how the night went down.

God Dethroned @ Blender Theater at Gramercy (10/16/2009)

Logo - God Dethroned

Artist: God Dethroned
Venue: Blender Theater at Gramercy (New York, NY)
Opener: Abigail Williams, Augury, Praetor Morte, Regain The Heart Condemned, Woe Of Tyrants
Date: 10/16/2009
Label: Metal Blade Records

I know the Fall season was upon us, but man was it cold the night of this show and perhaps some of the kinds of music that we were about to witness had something to do with it. After all, this would be the first time in about four years that the guys in God Dethroned had made an appearance in NYC. The last time they came around was for a Death Metal festival that took place at the long shuttered C.B.G.B.’s. Direct support would come from Abigail Williams who we saw in this same venue as a headliner not too long ago and if that was not enough to spark your interest well there were four other bands on the bill that made this a very awesome treat for the ticket price.

Preator Morte: What I caught was not bad at all but I missed the larger part of their set based on the show starting much earlier than it had been announced as starting. Generally a show like this starts off at 7:30 which was when I arrived but by this time the band was almost done with their set. Oh well. Regain The Heart Condemned was up next and another new name in my Metal book.
