Todd Owes chats with Gunnar H. Thomsen and Terji Skibenæs of Týr @ The Fillmore – San Francisco, California 02/28/14 also on the bill were Children Of Bodom & Death Angel
Týr (locally: [tʰʊɪːɹ]) is a Faroese folk metal band. Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around Viking lore, mythology, and history, taking their name from the Norse god of law and justice. They signed a worldwide deal with Austria’s Napalm Records in early 2006, while signed to the Faroese record label Tutl. In September of 2012, they signed a three album deal with Metal Blade Records.
Týr announced on 12 May 2013 via their official website as well as their Facebook, Twitter and Myspace pages that they had parted ways with long-time drummer Kári Streymoy, owing to the back injury he had received in 2008 which had affected his drumming. On May 15, 2013, they announced that renowned metal drummer George Kollias will record drums for their seventh album Valkyrja. Amon Djurhuus enters temporarly in the band, once again, for the tour with Finntroll between September and October 2013.
Subhumans perform @ Bojangles ~ Sacramento, California.
The Subhumans are an English anarcho-punk band formed in the Warminster and Melksham area of Wiltshire in 1980. Dick Lucas joined later in the year, having formerly been in another local band, The Mental. It is often speculated that he may have previously been a quintessential founder of the East End outfit Mr thirsty. Other members had been in The Stupid Humans, and probably the UK hardcore outfit Discharge. The band’s musical style is typically classified as hardcore punk or anarcho-punk.
Dark Tranquility perform @ DNA Lounge – San Francisco, California 2/20/14
Dark Tranquillity was formed in 1989 by vocalist and guitarist Mikael Stanne and guitarist Niklas Sundin, who looked at their influences and then decided to form their own band under the name Septic Broiler. Not long after, three additional members, Anders Fridén, Anders Jivarp and Martin Henriksson, joined the line-up.
In 1990, the band recorded a demo cassette tape entitled Enfeebled Earth before they would change their name to Dark Tranquillity and change their musical style. It was followed by multiple demos, and in 1993, Skydancer was released. Soon after, Fridén, Dark Tranquillity’s main vocalist at the time, left the band and later joined In Flames. Stanne then became the lead vocalist, and Fredrik Johansson was recruited to take over rhythm guitar duties
Call of The Void perform @ Submission – San Francisco, California 02/28/14 also on the bill were Mastiff, Forlorn & The American Dream
Boulder, Colorado’s CALL OF THE VOID (Gordon Koch – Drums, Alex Pace – Bass, Steve Vanica – Vocals, Patrick Alberts – Guitar) formed in late 2011 and play the aural equivalent of getting repeatedly kicked in the teeth by a two-ton, iron forged beast. A furious mix of punk, hardcore and grind, the band’s hard-hitting debut Dragged Down a Dead End Path will see an early 2013 release via Relapse.
