All those “stand by” posts and teasers have finally been laid to grave today, as Monster Energy AFTERSHOCK FESTIVAL 2018 finally takes those curtains off the festival’s line-up. California’s biggest rock festival AFTERSHOCK 2018, returns for another year at the famous Discovery Park near downtown Sacramento, CA to be held this year on October 13th and 14th, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. With the fest posting a lot of teasers on their social media pages, fans put their thinking caps on and a lot of predictions were made. Some were right and some went wrong. Those who vouched in on their favourite bands give yourself a pat on your back as this year’s edition will be headlined by none other than SYSTEM OF A DOWN, who will be returning to the States after three years, as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark self-titled first album.
From the crypts of cold, dark and grim forests of Sweden ENTRAILS have been belting forth some of the most evil and harsh death metal, to be precise, that trademark Swedish death metal. Yeah the one with the buzzsaw sound! Formed in 1990/91, but breaking down soon after, only to be spawned back in 2008 the Swedes have come a long way, and that includes maneuvering tough obstacles and hardships. Line-up changes are no exclusion to that, and just like any other band, ENTRAILS have yet again undergone the procedure of ‘change of guards’. This time singer/bassist Tommy and drummer Martin has decided to quit the band, in order to have more time for their jobs and other bands. This inevitable change comes just three years after Tommy and Martin joined the band.
