Gift Giver Sign With Century Media

Gift Giver

A Detroit-based band Gift Giver have inked a deal with Century Media. A press release characterizes the band’s sound as “tech/nu-metal.” Hmm. I looked them up online. They sound like they all love Meshuggah. But so many bands sound like that these days. I posted one of their lyric videos at the end of this […]

1349, Origin To Tour


This is going to be a hell of a show. 1349 has announced plans to tour the U.S. in 2015 with Origin, Abysmal Dawn, and Wolvhammer. The tour will be called “Chaos Raids USA,” but we don’t know yet when and where the bands will be making stops. That information will be revealed soon, and […]

Electric Wizard, Satan’s Satyrs To Tour

Electric Wizard

This would be pretty awesome to catch. Looks like Electric Wizard will be hitting the road this spring with Satan’s Satyrs in tow. The North American run will happen mostly in April. Here are the dates, as I have nothing more to say about this, in all truth. 3/31: Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer 4/1: […]

In Flames, All That Remains Announce Dates

In Flames

Talk about two bands who’ve totally softened their sounds over the years, all for wider commercial appeal. In Flames and All That Remains will be touring together in two months’ time. It’ll be the second leg of In Flames’ ‘Siren Charms’ tour. Wovenwar will be opening on all dates. I wouldn’t go to this if […]

Revocation, The Contortionist To Tour


Now, this doesn’t sit well with me. Apparently, The Contortionist will be the headliner on their upcoming tour with Revocation. Are they a bigger band? Maybe I just don’t want to believe that this is the case, but, it seems wrong. Fallujah and Toothgrinder will also be on the bill for the trek, which gets […]

Enslaved To Tour With Yob


That, I’ve got to see. Enslaved with Yob? That’s a fucking party and a half right there. The North American tour, which will also feature Ecastatic Vision, kicks off in early March. Here are the dates: 3/5: San Diego, CA @ Brick By Brick 3/6: Los Angeles, CA @ El Rey Theatre 3/7: San Francisco, […]

Vattnet Viskar Book Studio Time, Shows

Vattnet Viskar

Guess what, ladies and gentlejerks? Vattnet Viskar have a new album they need to record. They will do that next month, with Sanford Parker (Twilight, Pelican) tapped to produce the outing. Looks like the band will release the disc in mid-2015. It also appears they will be playing a bunch of shows following their time […]

High On Fire Book Shows, Studio Time

High On Fire

The return of High On Fire is happening in 2015, folks. Next month, the band will enter GodCity Studios to begin tracking their new album with Converge’s Kurt Ballou producing. That still untitled effort will be issued in 2015 on eOne Music. On their way to the studio, High On Fire will be playing the following […]

Bane Touring Plans Expand


Bane will be touring the East Coast later this month and the middle of next. Why? Because they can. Why not? At this point, this is the latest on when and where the band will be playing: 12/19: Albany, NY @ Bogies (w/ Born Low & After The Fall) 12/20: Amityville, NY @ Revolution Bar […]
