The Kiss and Mötley Crüe Tour! Tell your parents their favorite music from their past is coming back for one more trip through memory lane. Oh I can see it now, a sea of face painted dweebs and fat groupies from 1987 who put on 200 extra pounds yet still dress like they are 21 and 120 lbs. Yikes. Not only is this terrifying in imagination, I’m sure the reality of the situation won’t be much better. Oh and my guess is that the ticket prices will be ungodly, like 80 bucks for GA and probably 40 for those nosebleed seats. Enjoy this event! It may not be as bad as I imagine but….I don’t want to take that chance.
Tour dates after the jump.
Not only are we getting a new album this year, Nile is also hitting US soil as well!!!! NOW WE CAN GET MORE OF THIS!!!!
Nile’s new album “At The Gate of Sethu” is slated for a “second quarter 2012″ release, so hopefully May/June. \w/ Tour dates after the jump.
The Occupation Domination tour looks to be one of the heaviest tours in the North Americas. With acts like Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Aborted and Decrepit Birth rounding out the top 4, even that itself is heavier than most tours. What is this? “Special performances by Loculus, Embryonic Devourment, Do Not Resuscitate & Face of Ruin“, well I need to check out who these bands are! I don’t know which is heavier, this one or the current Hate Eternal/Goatwhore/Cerebral Bore/Fallujah tour.
SO MUCH DEATH METAL. SO MUCH HEADBANGING TO BE HAD.
Every Mens/Womens restroom should have Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man on the door. Emmure’s new album “Slave To The Game“, drops on April 10th, son.

HeavyBlogIsHeavy says: Scale The Summit have been touring fairly extensive the last couple of years, supporting pretty much every band ever. These instrumetallers really do get around, and it was only a matter of time before they had their own headlining tour. It had never occurred to me until now that these dudes never had a proper national headlining tour before, but in early 2012, they’ll be taking to the road with Elitist and performing nightly 70-minute sets with material from all three albums. Huzzah!
Wow, 70 minute sets? I better get ready for this because they are going to blow my mind for 70 minutes straight.

Let’s be honest, the US of A still gets some good tours. I am not bitching about that. However, it seems Australia and especially Europe gets the solid tours. Europe takes the cake for festivals though…with Mayhem and Ozzfest being complete bullshit anymore…shows like Download and Wacken create a small temporary country of metalheads and moshpits. It’s an amazing site to be seen in photos, I cannot imagine being there in person. It must be the most powerful feeling for a band to perform in front of a sea of people. Banners and tits everywhere, it’s to die for.
I see flyers for tours in Europe and I get jealous. The entire line up, or atleast more than 75% of the bands, are solid. Each match up in terms of genre of music and how epic the bands are. Take this for example, I really want to see this show!
I know it says 40 more acts to be announced but…c’mon….CANNIBAL CORPSE AND BEHEMOTH HEADLINING?!?!?! That’s some of the heaviest music in the world…sharing the stage. I really hope those two…and Suffocation, Napalm Death and let me throw in a personal fav…NILE tour the US. That would make for a happy Mergel.
