Since 2017, they have been laying waste to the world sharing the stage with Hatebreed, Cro-Mags, among others in just 2019 alone. Shortly after their upcoming Fall US Tour dates MW will headline a winter UK/European tour with Toxic Holocaust, Enforcer, Skeletal Remains. Continue reading →
LIVE and Bush are back on U.S. soil after a successful UK tour! And to top it all, it’s the original line-up of LIVE, featuring, Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums, percussion). The enough can’t be said about Bush who have been keeping ALT rock alive since the 90’s. Led by frontman Gavin Rossdale the band still sounds as good if not better than they did well over 2 decades ago.
“…this was definitely one of the best tours in our career” – Aborted
32 back-to-back shows, in 32 days – after annihilating Europe with their sold-out “Hell Over Europe” tour, Aborted brought “TerrorVision” to the UK and Ireland for a whole week of goremageddon in support of the brand new album*. With Montréal’s extreme metal titans Cryptopsy as special guests, hot from the release of ‘The Book of Suffering – Tome II’, and support from the UK’s own Ingested and Unfathomable Ruination, this was to be the ultimate deathfest, and we caught it all on the opening night!
“TerrorVision”is out now on Century Media Records and can be purchased here.
“UK fiends! We have some exciting news! The tour gods smileth thine way and will let us annihilate you lovely c**ts with our good friends of Cryptopsy, Ingested and Unfathomable Ruination !! Come on out and party with us like it’s 1999 or something.”
With Aborted’s “Hell Over Europe” tour almost a complete sell-out, they now turn their attention to decimate the UK and Ireland with arguably the most brutal death metal line-up of the year! The Belgian Death/grinders will be joined by special guests, the extreme metal titans Cryptopsy, with their fresh independent offering ‘The Book of Suffering – Tome II’. Further support comes from the UK’s own slam kings Ingested with their first show back on British soil after their hugely successful North American headline “Evisceratour”, and London’s own brutal outfit Unfathomable Ruination. The tour begins tonight at The Dome in Tufnell Park London with the last few tickets remaining! Let’s show the world what the UK is made of – let the carnage begin! Continue reading →
Just before embarking on their mini EU tour including debut shows across Germany and the Netherlands Complexity Festival alongside Carnifex, The Faceless and others, djent pioneers SikTh treated UK fans to two intimate performances with Londons Exist Immortal. Firstly at Sub 89 in Reading, and secondly to my local venue and ‘NME Best Small Venue 2012’ The Forum in Tunbridge Wells. This gig marks one of many celebrating to small 250 capacity venues’ 25th anniversary celebrations, which has a reputation of giving a stage to bands before they made it big. SikTh are locally held in very high regard where they are practically legends and it was a pleasure to have them back here once again. UK alternative hardcore act Cove were announced as openers but unfortunately had to reschedule to the following Sunday – a shame for those attending as Cove perform with such an explosive veracity that they would have put on one hell of an opening performance! Despite this slight alteration to the evening, together SikTh and Exist Immortal both delivered equally passionate and energetic performances, where their two distinctive styles accentuated one another with their mix of djent and melodic verses.
