The continent of South America also has a pretty brutal show coming up. The show takes place in Santiago, Chile. It appears to be happening on the 28th and the 29th of April. The bands on this bill are insane and it is my hope that something like this could come to America.
This is exciting news if you live out on the west coast of the United States. Sci-fi thrashers Vektor have announced a batch of tour dates in your area check them out . I for one would love to see these guys thrash it up but unfortunately I live on the east coast. So if you live on the west coast and are able to attend a show you should really do so because “Black Future” and their latest album released last year “Outer Isolation” are fantastic. Both albums are a steady part of my thrash metal diet and should be a part of yours too.
East coast thrashers do not fret; there is a re-united band with a few dates on this side of the country. I’m talking about Morbid Saint! That’s right next Friday January 21st Morbid Saint will be playing Club Europa in Brooklyn, New York alongside Deceased. And if that wasn’t sick enough for you the following day at the Barbary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania they are playing with Whiplash! I don’t even know the word you would use to describe this batch of dates but I’m just going to throw the word INSANE out there. Hopefully more dates will be announced by this band in the not too distant future.
Speaking of great festivals the last weekend in June there is a great one taking place in Ohio. I’m speaking of the Warriors of Metal V Open Air Fest of course. It’s in its fifth year this year and this is shaping up to be one hell of a weekend. With new wave of thrash favorites Vindicator and Lazarus A.D. already booked and more great bands being announced as the year progresses, this is the metal fest of the year if you live in the United States. Please do your best to support this organizations cause and get out and support many up and coming bands and just have a great weekend of great metal.
One last thing for now, check these guys out!
