Hey fiends, while I know you are finalizing your costume for whatever Halloween hootnanny you might be involved in, I’d like to call your attention to the annual NAMM appearance by Metal Allegiance at the House Of Blues. Check it out.
The Press Release:
METAL ALLEGIANCE began as a celebration of heavy metal, powered by the almost tribal bond shared between the extreme music community’s most revered trailblazers, armed with a list of contributors onstage (and off) that read like a Wikipedia entry on the genre itself.
Summer is heading our way and that means a bevy of summer concert tours are as well. Let’s take a look at this news from the Exmortus camp.
The Press Release:
EXMORTUS will hit the road this summer headlining The Summer of Steel Tour! Featuring support from The Absence and Hatchet alongside Immortal Guardian, Black Fast and label mates Micawber on select shows; EXMORTUS will embark on tour dates across North America beginning June 28th in San Diego.
“We are stoked to unleash The Sound of Steel upon North America this Summer! This is our first headlining tour and we’re honored to have within our ranks: The Absence and Hatchet, as well as special regional guests — Novareign, Immortal Guardian, Black Fast and Micawber. So, come and have your minds melted by the new tunes as well as old favorites! See you soon!” adds EXMORTUS founder, vocalist & guitarist Conan.
On their forthcoming album The Sound of Steel, EXMORTUS offer a fresh palette of blood-shedding, blackened, neo-classical thrash.
