Sabbatory – “Endless Asphyxiating Gloom”. Sabbatory gives us a basic yet thrilling headbanger of a death metal album. The band promotes heavy moshing and drinking with their riffing and the result is an annihilation of your ears as well as your neck. 3 out of 5
Iced Earth returned earlier this year and I am just now getting around to writing a review for this epic return to the public. Plagues of Babylon is your traditional metal album filled with catchy riffs, tasty leads, up beat drumming and radical vibrato vocals. This album is very welcoming to my ears as it’s different from the usual when it comes to all of the metal I hear these days. Iced Earth are a great band with a good reputation and fans will be happy with the result of the new album, Plagues of Babylon.
Our Last Enemy, Australia’s answer to mechanical synth driven riff powered metal. This album is tough and the blend of metal riffing and keyboards is a unique experience since this amount of keyboard use is usually saved for symphonic or atmospheric black metal. Does it work or does it get annoying?
I am pretty dang excited for this show. Mainly due to the facat that Exodus is on the bill and even though Slayer lost 2 members, they are always fun to watch and the show is always good. In fact, as long as Tom Araya is in the band, I could fucking care less. Below are the tour dates so far and the Kansas City, MO date will see a return of Headbang or GTFO providing live reviews as well as high quality photos.
