Terror, Goatwhore Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

"Hey cookie, I dropped my pencil"

They might as well just release the entire lineup already. It’s not like the bill doesn’t already fucking rule. You think adding Terror’s going to get some kid to go, “Wait one hot fucking second! I wasn’t sold until this Terror announcement. Fuck it, I’ll go.” At this point, people are either going or not […]

Into The Moat Reuniting For Floridian Festival

Into The Moat

OK, well…I have two weeks vacation time from the day job. Maybe I need to drive down to Florida, stop in Sanford along the way to see Jason Suecof, and hit up the unfortunately-named “Bringin’ It Back For The Kids 2” festival. The fest will take place at Rocketown in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on October […]

Six Flags FestEvil Coming In September

Born of Osiris

Hmm. It is funny. Every time I have ever been to Six Flags, the only bands they’ve ever had play there were either tween acts, washed-up ‘80s or ‘90s dudes, or people dressed in heavy character suits, dancing around to blared audio.
