Abbath, High on Fire, Skeletonwitch and Tribulation spearhead metal mag’s ferocious new tour this March.

Over the last four years, Decibel Magazine has redefined what a metal tour can accomplish. Creative and ambitious curation has unified artists from far reaches of the extreme universe who would never have the opportunity to tour North America together.

New Multi Camera Video Of Serpent Crown Performing in Oakland, California

Serpent Crown plays metal that is largely in your face, with thick riffs, searing solos, and pummeling rhythms..straightforward and crafted for head banging.

Serpent Crown perform their smash hits @ The Golden Bull – Oakland , California

The Bay Area has long been a nexus for heavy metal, hard core punk, and devastating doom….Combining the best of the Bay Area traditions of thrash, heavy rock, and hardcore to create their own sound, enter Serpent Crown. Without being completely sub-genre specific, Serpent Crown plays metal that is largely in your face, with thick riffs, searing solos, and pummeling rhythms..straightforward and crafted for head banging. The band released it’s first demo in 2009, but progress and overall band activity was pretty sparse due to lineup changes and issues. Since it’s first official release was a self-titled EP in 2013 through the Philadelphia based record label Horror Pain Gore Death Productions, the band has gained momentum, touring along the West Coast and performing around the Bay Area.

“Serpent Crown unleashes metal songs that are catchier and more intense than the sum of the band’s local contemporaries..”
-Inside the Collection:Weekly Curator Picks, Pandora BLOG

For fans of Sacrilege (UK), High On Fire, and 80s metal.

GOATWHORE To Kick Off North American Headlining Tour

goat

It’s been sixteen years since Goatwhore reared its menacing head from the swamplands of New Orleans, Louisiana — a city rife with urban tales of voodoo curses, witchcraft and hauntings by souls of the damned. Spawned by former Acid Bath/Crowbar guitarist Sammy Duet in 1997, their winding legacy follows a dramatic, at times traumatic, sequence of personnel changes,fatal injuries, paranormal activity, natural disasters, and a collection of other misadventures large and small. They say what doesn’t kill you… whether driven by an unwavering commitment to their craft, pure insanity, the divine powers of Satan or perhaps a combination of the three, Goatwhore forever perseveres, inadvertently establishing themselves as one the hardest working, consistently punishing live bands of the 21st century and a true institution of heavy music.

GOATWHORE Readies For Forthcoming Live Assaults; Additional Dates Announced‏

35
Louisiana blackened thrash perpetrators, GOATWHORE, are currently readying for their next round of headlining live assaults. Slated to commence in Houston on September 15th, the band will quash nearly two dozen US cities including recently added dates in Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, Virginia, Georgia and Florida as well as five shows supporting death rock/horror punk icons, Samhain! From there, GOATWHORE will bring their canticles of chaos overseas for a European invasion with Dying Fetus an Fallujah. The lengthy expedition embarks on November 8th in Liege, Belgium and comes to a ceremonial close on December 19th in Hamburg, Germany.

Due to the upcoming birth of his first son, GOATWHORE bassist James Harvey will be sitting out both tours. In the interim, the band has enlisted bassist TA from San Antonio blackened death horde, HOD.

Comments Harvey of his absence, “Unfortunately, I will be staying home for the upcoming tour dates with Samhain as well as the European tour with Dying Fetus and Fallujah. This is due to the upcoming birth of my first son by my longtime girlfriend, Lorrena. He is due between the middle and the end of September and I will be staying home to fulfill my paternal duties. Obviously we have known about this for months and have planned accordingly – our friend TA from the Texas band, HOD, will be filling in on bass duties for the upcoming US tour. I am bummed that I will not be able to go back out on the road for the rest of the year, but I’m sure everyone understands the gravity of welcoming a new life into the world. I wish the best of luck to the guys on the upcoming runs and hope to see everyone soon.” Tour dates here..

LO-PAN – “Colossus” Album Review‏

Print

Ohio stoner rockers LO-PAN are about to release their latest full length album, Colossus, on October 7th. I’ve had the pleasure to check out the latest album and I must say I found myself headbanging and overall enjoying the Hell out of this album. The album is named after the Colossus of Rhodes, a 96 foot tall statue of the Greek Titan-God, Helios. This colossus of an album delivers 10 rock tracks clocking in at about 42 minutes that you will find yourself blasting at full volume in your car. Why your car? Cause this album was bred to be listened to while driving down a desert highway, top down with a hot blonde next to you, rockin’ out right along with you as you head to the beautiful coasts of California. The vocals are smooth and inspire you to sing right along with Frontman Jeff Martin.

33

The guitars deliver stoner rock that’ll have you movin’ and groovin’ and feeling like all is right in the world. If you’re into great rock with a chill sound or are looking for just some music that you can play at a party that everyone will enjoy having on while getting on with their convo’s, this album is it. Drive with this album, play it on the weekends while you work on your car, play it while driving… there’s no end to the replay value of this album. LO-PAN’s Colossus is a great fourth album effort on their part and I look forward to hearing more from them. LO-PAN is currently on tour, if they happen to hit your city, I strongly suggest in checking them out as they are a band that is truly appreciated at their lives shows. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Complete with cover art courtesy of Jason Alexander Byers (ex-Disengage, Black Black Black), Colossus, like its namesake, was built in defiance of gods and men, and while LO-PAN’s loudest statement has always been made on stage, the material they craft and the power with which they execute it on this album is bound to stand for years to come.
