Just the other day, a friend from the NYC Metal Scene that I’ve known for some years asked if I could share the news about the latest developments with the 2018 NYDM Music Festival. This massive annual event is organized by the heads of the NYDM individuals and for those who are wondering what the acronym means it stands for “New York Death Militia”. You’ve very likely seen patches like the one up above on jackets at Metal shows. Originally, this three day happening was set for a space in Tappan, NY but its since been moved to the Mid-Hudson Civic Center for its biggest two days and then to the more intimate Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck, NJ. Take a look at the massive poster that features some amazing Death Metal and NYHC bands.
Day 1 of the NY Deathfest has landed at SVB. The lineup for this one is extensive and features: MALIGNANCY, Internal Bleeding, Thanatology, Immortal Suffering, Holy Cost, Organ Dealer, Hate Diplomacy, TORTUROUS INCEPTION, Pink Mass, Corpse Hoarder, Throne of Botis, Chained to the Dead, Eye of the Destroyer. This event is 21+ with proper identification.
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.
“Bad news…Illness of a close family member of one our band mates unfortunately has forced postponement of East Coast Armageddon until late January continuing into February. Our sincerest apologies to all of our fans. We will see you all in January.”
