Metal Fans are going to happily leave 2014 behind with all of the fantastic tours that are awaiting them as soon as 2015 is here and ready to say hello. We’ve already discussed that the Black and Death Metal fans are going to be over the full moon based on the visits happening by both Watain & Mayhem’s Tour along with the Cannibal Corpse & Behemoth Tour and now it’s time to get the Metalcore blood to a boil with the revelation that Suicide Silence is embarking on a headlining run. According to what I am reading this is the band’s first ever US headlining run and they will bring along Emmure, Within The Ruins and Fit For An Autopsy to make sure you are exhausted by the end of the night. I’ve snagged the tours promotional poster and pieces of the press copy that went out for you all to indulge in along with the dates. We can talk more about it after you read it so get moving

Artist: Various Artists Title: “Trespass America Tour 2012” Sampler Label: Prospect Park Music Release Date: 7/17/2012 Genre: Groove Metal/Heavy Metal/Alt-Metal Rating: 3.5/5
Having just caught the “Trespass America Tour” for 2012 I wanted to toss a few thoughts out about this free compilation sampler that gives fans a free idea of what they were in store for had they purchased a ticket. I also love the fact that it puts more free music in people’s collection and does so legally. The “Trespass” tour featured seven bands in full and from headliner to lead off band we found Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, Emmure, God Forbid and Battlecross all on the same stage. The lengthy affair spanned some hours but was a lot of fun to be a part of. Right off the bat the two provisions from Five Finger are solid but they are the only band to get two tracks. I was surprised to find these particular two instead of a tune like “Remember Everything” but I guess that one can earn them some money by remaining a purchasable tune. The rest of the bands are only featured once but it’s a nice way to get an idea of what their sound entails if you happen to be one of those fans who doesn’t have too much background on the whole roster that was presented on the tour. My own favorites fell to the Battlecross, God Forbid and Trivium tunes more than the ones by Pop Evil and Emmure. During the concert I felt that Pop Evil was the oddly placed Hard Rock band among the super heavy and Emmure I just didn’t enjoy at all since it reminded me of a Limp Bizkit kind of act and I very simply hate that angle at this point. No more Rap Metal please, it’s a past tense format that does not need to come back. The new Trivium tune sounds good to me as the band continues to improve their sound and mature with more interesting melodies. Continue reading “Trespass America Tour 2012” Sampler by Various Artists→
