WSOU Presents ‘A Place Where There’s No More Pain’ CD Release Tour for Life of Agony with support from Sworn Enemy, Anaka and Sekond Skyn.
Sworn Enemy will hit NYC right in the business with support from Maniac Rise, Desolate, SOS and Hellshot.
The winter cold is melting away day by day thanks to the literal inferno of Metal tours that are being announced or that have already been announced on some other mediums and as I said a couple of posts ago, I am getting some of the crush your skull stuff up for your indulgence. I cannot risk you missing out on events like the mighty Malevolent Creation who will be turning Spring into a Death Metal frenzy with help from Sworn Enemy, Pyrexia and Abiotic. Check out the poster and dates below.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: For the sake of brevity and based on just how many of these there have been I am leaving my “musings” to a very simple “this will decimate the venues” for sure and I hope to be a part of the happenings when they visit my town. Our regional show is at the Black Bear Bar where I saw Satan a couple of years ago. Its not a massive space but just perfect for this kind of visit. What do you think of this tour? Will you be hitting any of the dates? Let me know in the comments as that is why we have them.

Venue: Irving Plaza (New York, NY)
Opener: Diecast, Sworn Enemy, Suicide Silence
Label: SPV Records
The chilly New York evening was going to get hotter very quickly inside Irving Plaza where tonight Sepultura from Brazil would be making a long overdue concert appearance. The group would be in support of their latest release “Dante XXI” on SPV Records, and they would bring with them Sworn Enemy, Diecast and Suicide Silence as their support. Here are some of the night’s happenings in case you missed the show.
We walked in just as Suicide Silence was mid-set and while that is not the best way to absorb a group for the first time in full I had to say that they were clearly intense about their performance. The amount of people in the venue for their set was limited but those who were pressed up to the barrier and ready to rock were certainly enjoying themselves. Their material seemed to go over well based on the lineup of the show. Diecast would be up second and this surprised me for the original roster order I saw showed them pre-Sepultura but something changed and here we are watching then instead of Sworn Enemy. They were tight and on the money so to speak as they supported their latest release on Century Media Records entitled “Internal Revolution”. Diecast would deliver new tracks like the stellar “Fade Away” and also showcase the new rhythm section that they had brought on to the bands roster. Joining Stoddard, Kita and Kolaitis would be Dennis Pavia (drums) and Brad Hornton (bass). Sworn Enemy would come up next and it was not going to be an easy night for them as their drummer Paul Antignai had taken ill. As a result of this he would not be performing tonight and that left the band in a difficult situation on home ground. Filling in tonight would be Corey Pierce of God Forbid who had been asked to do this on very short notice. Unfortunately, this was not working out and there were stops and starts all around. I did not feel this as the fault of the GF basher for there are few drummers who can learn another player’s whole set in five hours time. After a few tries he left and the drummer from Suicide Silence sat in. He seemed more accustomed to the material and was doing fine but myself and some others felt that this was a real lackluster performance as a result all around. Their being down a man should have had them precede Diecast since there was no way to see if the last minute solution would work or not. While it did not I do give them credit for not cancelling altogether and disappointing their fans.
