This week my wreckommendation is for a band I’ve recently become a fan of. I saw Battlecross open up for Hate Eternal and Goatwhore and they won me over and they were just fun, entertaining and overall a good time. That didn’t stop there because I kept listening to them and their newest album called “Pursuit of Honor“. They are a melodic thrash metal band featuring a vocalist who has a good range and uses primarily harsh vocals. They are just a beer drinkin, mosh startin, headbangin good time. Check them out!
The Summer Slaughter Tour, one of the heaviest touring metal festivals of the year, is letting you decide who opens up the entire thing! The polls have been open for a couple of days now and it doesn’t state when they will close. Each band is definitely worthy of the spot but only one will win! So who will share the stage with Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, Exhumed, Goatwhore and Veil of Maya? The nominees are on the picture below.
Visit The Summer Slaughter Tour Facebook page, click on the “VOTING” on the left hand side of the page and install the app. You will then be allowed to properly vote for which band you seem fit to open. As I post this, Fallujah is currently winning but Vildhjarta is right behind them. Will Vildhjarta catch up? Will Enfold Darkness come back and take it all?
“This personal story is told from the perspective of satellite engineer and vocalist Michael Dafferner, who is a member of an unknown “math-core” metal band called Car Bomb. In 2007 Michael ventures out on his first U.S. tour and discovers that performing in an unknown band playing an unknown genre of music is not the ego boosting experience he was hoping for. The next year Car Bomb is offered a tour with the goth-punk groups Gorgeous Frankenstein and Bella Morte who offer the prospect of playing for large groups of people. Several thousands of dollars in debt and dozens of wasted vacation days later, the band finishes its disappointing tour. Finally, in 2009, Car Bomb is offered a tour with the well known and respected bands Gojira and The Chariot. During this tour Michael learns what it would be like to live out his dream and the costs associated with making that dream come true. Includes interviews with Lamb of God, Gojira, Richard Christy and many more”
