They’re mixing vibrant alt rock colors into what was typically a monolithic skull-and-crossbones metal template of black on black, side-stepping the big-box corporate model and building peripheral excitement through on-site activities, enhanced Gourmet Man Food attractions and more” (February 18, 2016).

Burn Halo Announce New Tour Dates, Band Member‏

BURN HALO have announced a sizeable batch of new tour dates today along with a new singer, ex-Trackfighter frontman TJ Chopelas, replacing former 18 Visions frontman James Heart.
BURN HALO released WOLVES OF WAR last year via eOne Music and was produced, engineered and mixed by Fred Archambault (AVENGED SEVENFOLD).

WOLVES OF WAR, the first Burn Halo album through the California band’s new deal with eOne Music, burns with a fire akin to the brutal-but-melodic juxtaposition of New Wave Of American Heavy Metal standard-bearers Killswitch Engage, the neo-Guns N’ Roses attack of Avenged Sevenfold, and the dark ambience of HIM. Fans who adored Burn Halo singles like “Save Me” and “Tear it Down” will be fall in love with Burn Halo all over again, even as longtime Eighteen Visions acolytes will delight in their throwback power.

Burn Halo has built a sizable and strongly devoted following, touring the world with Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Escape The Fate, Static-X, Saliva, Puddle Of Mudd, Tantric, Adema and many more trailblazers and rock n’ roll hit makers.

Fans will hear their favorite Slayer songs from the band’s 30-year plus discography, as well as a few of the newer songs from Repentless, named “The Metal Album of the Year” by Guitar World.  Slayer and Anthrax stormed through Europe together last fall, amassing a string of sensational live reviews, so North American fans, this will be a night of metal music that should not be missed.

“We are very excited to tour again with our fellow Kings Slayer on a thrash/metal extravaganza,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante.  “Two of the Big Four – now that’s a night of metal for all the Kings and Queens!”

Added Mark Osegueda from Death Angel, “We are thrilled and honored to be part of this amazing North American touring package.  Slayer/Anthrax/Death Angel – it just looks, sounds and feels right.  This will be Death Angel’s first-ever tour with Slayer, something we’ve hungered for our entire career.  And we will bring that hunger to the stage every night, so get there early because this will be a show not to be missed; from the first note of the night until the very last!

This fall we’ll be touring with Devin Townsend and Fallujah! We will also be performing Coma Ecliptic in its entirety.

“The songs on Coma Ecliptic came together in 2014 (and some of them even earlier than that), so it feels amazing to finally present the album live in full, the way it was intended to be heard. It’s our most theatrical album yet and we’ll be looking to bring that element to the stage as best we can; not to mention how great it will be to share the stage with Devin + crew again.” – Dan/Between The Buried And Me

Relapse Announces Deluxe Reissues of First Daze Here & First Daze Here Too From Pentagram

PENTAGRAM have also announced a West Coast tour with Wax Idols and King Woman this coming May!

pentagram

You can’t talk about heavy metal without talking about PENTAGRAM. The legendary D.C. band has been committed to the dark arts for going on half a decade, and has only recently seen the kind of recognition its legacy deserves. Though the band has released nine influential full-lengths over the course of its career,PENTAGRAM‘s most popular and influential material since its Relapse resurrection fifteen years ago can be found in First Daze Here, a collection of the band’s earliest works that has been out-of-print for years and will now finally see a new reissue via Relapse this coming June. Its companion First Daze Here Too, a 22-track collection of unreleased studio recordings and live rehearsals from the early ’70s, will also see its first reissue since going out of print several years ago. Both reissues have been newly remastered and include in-depth liner notes from founding PENTAGRAM member / original drummer Geof O’Keefe along with gorgeously revitalized layouts. CD Version of First Daze Here includes a vinyl-shaped CD featuring the two newly remastered versions of the infamous Macabre 45! The original mix of the long-lost 45 will also see its first-ever vinyl pressing for this reissue, and is available in the deluxe First Daze Here / First Daze Here Too bundle or along with the Bone White / Gold Merge LP of First Daze Here.

PENTAGRAM have also announced a West Coast tour with Wax Idols and King Woman this coming May! The band will be crushing audiences for two weeks kicking off this May 17, and will also be performing at Psycho Las Vegas this August – check out a full list of dates below.
