The Scoop: The Rock Allegiance Tour has been rumbling through a healthy number of states for a few weeks now and is finishing up in our beautiful home base of Brooklyn this coming Saturday. The tour itself is an exciting one because the co-headlining sets of Volbeat and HIM alone are worth the price of admission and when you add All That Remains to the mix, well, I guess you don’t need me to say any more. Airbourne was originally scheduled to appear but had to cut their tour short based on personal business back home. Now I’ve enjoyed the music of HIM the longest out of the performers and am very excited to see them especially since the bands earlier in the year tour was scrapped due to illness. Volbeat of course is a live concert heavyweight and their fans are super supportive. This is going to be a good one if you can trust what people are posting on their social mediums. That being said I am psyched to offer up this next contest that comes care of the fine folks at AEG marketing and lets me put a few lucky PiercingMetal readers into the show. Read on.

Stylistically the band is listed as Death Metal but they incorporate elements of Jazz and Fusion to their sound. Their return to NYC for the first time hitting the region in sixteen years would come with a bevy of bands along for the ride. Featured tonight would be local support Praetorian along with Sacrificial Slaughter, Enfold Darkness, Vital Remains and Warbringer. I almost missed this show since it was originally listed as being a late evening show after some discussion about it being cancelled altogether. Sometimes the Gramercy Theatre holds Metal events very late in the evening as we found them doing with Ensiferum who played at 12:30 one time. My schedule kept me from seeing the local openers and Sacrificial Slaughter but I would get in just in time to see Enfold Darkness take the stage. Here is how what I caught took place.
