PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s been awhile since I’ve seen 1349 decimating the stage and while they’ve hit our area not too long ago I wasn’t able to make it out to the gig. They are a crushing experience and I am a little sad that these dates don’t find a headlining NYC appearance in the mix. They have a lot of fans over here and sell pretty good. Hey guys, find an open date in your schedule and get something set up. What do you readers think about this tour? Is this a band that you can get behind or run to safety from the very sight of? Let me know down in the comments section below. Ciao for now.
