Moonspell Brings Darkness To All In 2014 With “America Noir”

There are times when a concert tour comes around that works from beginning to end in terms of its name acts and thank the Dark Gods, “The America Noir” Tour featuring Moonspell is one of them. I think that you will agree with me when you learn that this tour will bring both Leaves Eyes and Atrocity along with them. Read more after the poster.

Nile’s “At The Gate Of Sethu” Tour Part 3 In 2014

Earlier in 2013, those Egyptian-themed Death Metal artisans in Nile paid a visit to NYC during their “At The Gate Of Sethu” Tour. The premise of this run was for an extended set by Nile in the form of two full sets and instead of touring with another band of note, they opted to have local support across the run of the tour.

Six Feet Under’s “East Coast Armageddon Tour” Is Postponed :(

Wow, another tour cancellation in the same week but yes my Metal Legions, I am sad to report for those who were excited about this particular happening that the upcoming tour for Six Feet Under (labelled the “East Coast Armageddon Tour”) has been postponed. The official announcement from the band follows the tour poster below.

Alas, The Sepultura Tour Has Been Cancelled

As you read this I am sitting at my favorite Metal show launch spot Duke’s and thanks to their speedy free WiFi, I have just learned from the bands Facebook page that it is indeed the case and that Brazilian Metal legends Sepultura have cancelled their upcoming US Tour. The bands statement is below the poster…

Poster - Sepultura at Gramercy - 2013

“Due to the delay in obtaining a visa for the band to enter the United States, we regret to inform all fans that the previously announced North American tour is being cancelled. We apologize to the fans, promoters, and the bands who were going to be part of the Tsunami Of Metal tour – UNEARTH, KATAKLYSM, SCAR THE MARTYR, ANCIIENTS, and DARK SERMON.”

I know a lot of the PiercingMetal fans were psyched about attending this show in NYC in a few weeks and were also hoping that we would run a contest for it as well so it sucks to find this being the case, but the Visa issue dilemma is something that we are used by now since its happened to numerous bands that we were excited about heading here. I’ll keep the calendar updated should any rescheduling that should occur. Stay tuned and for the interim readers can follow the latest news in these bands lives by following their Official Websites which are linked below for your examination.

Children Of Bodom Shall Wear A “Halo Of Blood” For The Tour In 2014

Unless I am wrong here, its been a pretty long time between headlining dates for Children Of Bodom in this part of the world. Yes they were headlining the Musician’s Institute stage at the Rockstar Mayhem Festival this past summer, and a couple of years ago they toured with Black Label Society and even on a Gigantour with Megadeth but as far as a full-scale headlining run – nope. It’s been awhile. That said, please allow me to showcase that the “Halo Of Blood Over America Tour” is going to be hitting the venues near you in early 2014. They’ll be joined by Tyr and “special guests” who we do not yet know who are at this writing. Read more below.
