Mr. Bungle recently announced a short fall tour with several shows hitting the east coast. The avant-garde thrash metal martyr’s will be kicking off the tour at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD on September 5th. This is a dream show for me and anyone that calls themselves a “metalhead.” The band’s lineup consists of original members Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Trey Spruance alongside Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Wow. That’s incredible.
Anyway, tickets for the show at Rams Head Live are available HERE. Tickets for all other shows on the fall tour are available HERE. Be sure to buy your tickets asap. I expect sold out venues and frenzied crowds. This tour will be historic. Come join us!
Sevendust are currently on the “Pawns & Kings” tour as support for Alter Bridge. They stopped at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town, WV on 8/4/2023. Sevendust are a band I have been familiar with but have never had the chance to see. After this show, I am now a huge fan and I hope to catch them again! If you have a chance to catch them on tour, you should do so!
Anyway, continue reading below for more pics of Sevendust and my full review of the show. Also, be sure to check out the Official Sevendust Website for music, videos, news, and tickets for his remaining shows. All images copyright and courtesy of John Krebs.
Just in time for the holidays, American hardcore “supergroup” Dead Cross released their second full-length album, II, on Ipecac Recordings this past October. The album is a concoction of musical treatments, doused with innovative riffs of gothic proportion, drummed up from the ash of burnt angel wings. It assaults the mind as it slowly peels the skin from the back of your neck. An entourage of metal’s finest, drilling distorted bass riffs into a tight metal frame, led by the ethereal uprise and brutal assault of Mike Patton’s vocals. A group of signature personas co-authoring new anthems of isolation and hatred towards war, global dominance, extreme consumerism, toxic masculinity, insanity, and fear-mongering. A scathing shitstorm of misanthropy aimed at society at large.
Anyway, continue reading below for my full review. Visit the Ipecac Recordings Website for Dead Cross music and merch. Album review by Joseph Strand.
Anthrax is currently touring in celebration of their 40th year as a band. Along with Black Label Society, Anthrax are bringing some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD on 8/18/2022. Both bands will play headline sets with Hatebreed as the supporting artist. Anthrax and BLS have shared festival stages and one-off shows numerous times, but this marks the very first time these two bands have toured together. Don’t miss it!!!
Korn recently stopped in Ohio while on their summer tour and Hazy Eye Media’s “Man in the Midwest” Bill Garman was there to catch these classic metal masters at work.

The Metal Tour Of The Year made a second stop while in New Jersey, and I was fortunate enough to be there. Megadeth and Lamb of God collectively blew the minds and eardrums of everyone in attendance. The sound and lighting at this show was amazing. Both heavy metal giants performed flawless sets in a beautiful amphitheater. This was my third time seeing the tour. Overall, I would say this was the best performance by both bands. Heavy metal gold.
Anyway, be sure to check out the Official Megadeth Website & Official Lamb of God Website for music, news, videos, merch, and all upcoming tour dates. Continue reading below for more photos from their performances in Holmdel, NJ on 9/16/21. All images copyright and courtesy of Andy Jillson.
