HUNTRESS AND DRAGONFORCE TO TOUR EUROPE THIS FALL

HUNTRESS AND DRAGONFORCE TO TOUR EUROPE THIS FALL

Support: It seems like just yesterday that Huntress made a name for themselves, and now here they are, about to tour with power metal veterans Dragonforce again, seemingly determined to make themselves a household name. Their debut album Spell Eater came out less than two months ago, and the band has been on a touring rampage to promote the album and get the word out that they mean business. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to travel through Europe,” said the band in an official statement. “Spread it, shred it, behead it!” Supporting Huntress and Dragonforce is German sleaze rock band Kissin’ Dynamite. Tour dates are below (I apologize to my American readers for leaving the dates in European format, but this news is mostly for Europeans after all!): 09.10.12 NL – Tilburg / 013 10.10.12 BE – Antwerp / Trix Ball 12.10.12 DE – Hannover / Capitol 13.10.12 DE – Cologne / Live Music Hall 14.10.12 DK – Copenhagen / Amanger Bio 15.10.12 NO – Oslo / Rockefeller 16.10.12 SE – Stockholm / Tyrol 18.10.12 FI – Seinajoki / Rymikorjaamo 19.10.12 FI – Helsinki / Nosturi 22.10.12 SE – Gothenburg / Brewhouse 23.10.12 DK – Arhus / Train 24.10.12 DE – Hamburg / Markthalle 30.10.12 DE – Munich / Backstage 31.10.12 DE – Berlin / Postbahnhof 01.11.12 DE – Dresden / Reithalle 02.11.12 DE – Erfurt / HsD 03.11.12 DE – Bochum / Zeche 05.11.12 DE – Frankfurt / Batschkapp 06.11.12 AT – Vienna / Szene 07.11.12 CH – Zurich / Komplex 09.11.12 IT – Florence / Viper Theatre 10.11.12 IT – Treviso / New Age Club...
TOP TEN GUILTIEST METAL PLEASURES

TOP TEN GUILTIEST METAL PLEASURES

Support: Photo credit: 8tracks.com The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine about our musical guilty pleasures. Now, I don’t really believe in feeling guilty about liking something harmless, so I have to come up with guilty pleasures in a roundabout, detached sort of way. I have no qualms sharing with all of you that I sang Hanson’s “I Will Come To You” without looking at any of the words during karaoke on my 21st birthday. Hell, I sing Alanis Morrisette’s “Head Over Feet” just about every time I jump in the shower. Most of my “guilty pleasures” are ’90s radio rock and pop songs, but whenever I go to my favorite metal hangout (Duff’s Brooklyn — they deserve a plug), I usually fall in love with a hair/glam song or two. Without further ado, here are my very guiltiest metal pleasures — please don’t judge me (okay, you can judge me, but ONLY in the comments section)! 10. Oh Sleeper, “Endseekers” A sentence I never thought I’d say: this Christian metalcore song is kind of awesome. “Endseekers” goes almost completely against what I look for in a metal song, but I can’t help but love it. 9. Scar Symmetry, “Prism And Gate” Vocals in registers only a dog can hear? Sign me up! I’m not even sure what subgenre this song is, and I have to admit it’s a bit of a musical mess, but I sing along with the chorus every time…a couple of octaves down, of course. 8. Megadeth, “Family Tree” Yes, “Family Tree” is from Youthanasia, Megadeth’s well-loved 1994 release. It’s still...
