Halloween Havok with Death Angel, Battlecross, 3 Inches of Blood, Diamond Plate, and Revocation: Pix and Interviews

A Dark, rainy, and dreary Halloween night in Pittsburgh, PA.  The historic Strip District was once again packed with headbangers, some dressed for the holiday, gathering for a spectacular line-up of metal a The Altar Bar.  Even though the weather was gloomy it truly was a perfect setting for an evening of thrash metal at it’s finest with a cast of characters that to an outsider would seem as all the same, but the crew here knew that the idiosyncrasies between each band made their uniqueness miles apart.  This was going to be good.

Personally, I was pretty pumped to see Death Angel.  I could not believe that I had never seen these guys live despite the fact that I jumped on their bandwagon in my senior year of high school in 1987 when all the buzz was going on about these young kids who were my age and making waves.  I really loved their second release “Frolic” and their cover of Kiss’ “Cold Gin” and their U2 (of all things) influenced “Bored”.  Even though Rob Cavestany is the only original member left, Mark’s been around since ’84 and Ted since 2001 have been.  They are all still metal to the core, and they totally were everything I could ever expect and more.  (Listen to Mark’s interview with us a few weeks before the show here).  The new material from The Dream Calls For Blood sounded excellent live and it was such a cool vibe to be seeing the show on Halloween with all in costume and just destroying the crowd who were eating up every moment.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have seen Battlecross every time they have been in Pittsburgh ever since they came here for the Trespass America Tour at Stage AE and blew everyone away.  I got to talking with them that day and this site has in many ways grown with them. Each time when they return and we meet back up it’s like catching up with old friends.  So, while you may cry bias to a review, I must say they improve each time I see the band.  Their stage presence and tightness is getting better and better.  The new material from War of Will is damn good live and the crowd went absolutely crazy with every song, fists pumping, singing along, and moshing madly- my bias notwithstanding.  Listen here for an exclusive interview with Hiran (guitar) for all that is happening with Battlecross…

Diamond Plate opened the show and as such you would expect a low crowd turn out or possibly less enthusiasm.  Not so tonight.  Diamond Plate has been doing things their way since their inception in 2004 when they were in high school.  Continuing to kill it on the road and work it ‘old school’, these guys are genuine metal and Pittsburgh absolutely loves them.  With solid tunes from their second effort “Pulse” and vocalist Matt Ares adding new dimensions, one cannot help but get swept up into the infectious energy of the band.   Check out this video interview as we hopped onto Diamond Plate’s RV to discuss “Pulse” and all that has been happening in their corner…

3 Inches of Blood from Canada were definitely a special treat as they hit the stage all made up in their Halloween outfits and playing a more 70’s tinged metal.  Cam Pipes was awesome with his high pitched wail and menacing presence, made even more menacing dressed as a bloody ghoulish priest.  Opening up with “Leather Lord” from Long Live Heavy Metal was brilliant and the perfect way to set the tone.  If the crowd had not done so already, let the merch table be raided and the downloading begin because these guys are awesome and just pure fun for metal fans.

Revocation is one of those bands that is just so full of talent it’s hard to believe.  They are really doing unique stuff when a lot of so called metal bands are just rehashing and copying our heroes.  The Boston boys may not have brought the banjo tonight, but they were dead on and displayed their blend of technical and thrash metal with wild abandon.  They pull off some very difficult tunes live brilliantly and with great stage presence giving the fans exactly what they pay for and more.  Revocation is a band that has to be caught live to truly appreciate how good they really are and make sure you chat them up at the merch booth because they are super cool guys as well.

REVOCATION Premiere Video for “Fracked”/at Altar Bar PGH 10/31

Massachusetts Metallers REVOCATION recently completed work on a video for their song “Fracked”, which comes from their recently released self-titled 4th album via Relapse Records.  The video was put together by Madeline Quinn and is a visual representation of the song’s lyrics, which highlight the environmental effects of Fracking.  Today the video is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of Bloody-Disgusting.  Check out the video HERE.

 

Frontman Dave Davidson commented on the video and the bands upcoming tour:

“Greetings heavy metal warriors! We are pleased to present to you our video for “Fracked.” Lyrically this song is about the rape and destruction of our environment at the hands of profit driven sociopaths, in other words a real feel good hit to brighten up your day. We’ll be jamming this new tune on our upcoming tour, see you in the pit!”

 

After returning home from a killer European tour REVOCATION will hit the road tomorrow in North America alongside Death Angel, 3 Inches of Blood, Battlecross and Diamond Plate.  The first show is in San Francisco, CA and the tour runs through November 10th in Santa Ana, CA.

MARK OSEGUEDA OF DEATH ANGEL talks to PGH MUSIC MAG/Live @Altar Bar 10/31

The Dream Calls for Blood, the follow up to Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL’s crushing Relentless Retribution (2010), was recorded once again at Audio Hammer Studios utilizing the production services of Jason Suecof (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, GOD FORBID, TRIVIUM). It finds DEATH ANGEL at the height of their powers, summarily fired and inspired by the exhaustive three years touring mounted for the last record, a worldwide onslaught that found the band fully welcomed, as vocalist Mark Osegueda explains, into the pantheon of thrash mastery…

“We finally did some shows with the big four guys, some festivals with SLAYER in Europe. We toured three legs with the ANTHRAX/TESTAMENT/DEATH ANGEL tour, throughout North America, plus we did the METALLICA Fillmore shows. We did some festivals with MEGADETH, so we touched on all the big four. We’re getting the word out that we are a relevant force in this type of music, a force to be reckoned with, because we’ve still got this young anger in us (laughs). Our stage show still completely delivers the goods, back to back with the younger thrash bands or the older thrash bands. We’re very confident in our live performance and we hold our own. And we think this next record is going to solidify that we also do that in the studio.”

Mark took some time the evening of October 3 to talk with Pittsburgh Music Magazine before their appearance at Altar Bar on Halloween night Oct. 31 in PGH to talk about the new record, touring, playing with the big four and newer bands today, and much more.  Listen here…

DEATH ANGEL’s previous album Relentless Retribution sold around 2,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 10 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The record also came in at #188 on Billboards Top Current Albums chart, making it DEATH ANGEL’s highest charting record since the bands reformation in 2004.

Battlecross returns to Pittsburgh w/ Death Angel, 3 Inches Of Blood, Revocation, Diamond Plate @ Altar Bar

Our brothers in arms Battlecross return to Pittsburgh with an amazing lineup of talent: Death Angel, 3 Inches Of Blood, Revocation, and Diamond Plate all at Altar Bar on 10/31!  One hell of a way to spend Halloween!

To cap off an extremely successful 2013, Battlecross has announced that they will be supporting Death Angel on their fall headlining tour! Battlecross will join the tour’s other supporting acts 3 Inches of Blood, Revocation, and Diamond Plate for a tour that begins on October 18 in San Francisco and wraps on November 10 in Santa Ana, CA. Tickets are on today/tomorrow in each city.

A new performance demonstration video for “Flesh & Bone” from “War of Will” has been posted to metalblade.com/battlecross. The video features Tony Asta, Don Slater, and Hiran Deraniyagala performing their individual parts to the track that proved to be a fan favorite on the road. “Flesh & Bone” was the soundtrack to walls of death all summer long on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, and popular metal blog, skullsnbones.com, even put together a compilation of fan-filmed walls of death from different cities on the tour. Watch those videos now at skullsnbones.com HERE!

“War of Will” debuted at #134 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #118 on the top current albums chart, #2 on the heatseeker chart, #15 on the current hard music chart, #16 on the hard music overall chart, and #32 on the independent albums chart. It didn’t stop here though, as the band also debuted in Canada’s Soundscan charts coming in at #178 Top 200 Current and #25 Hard Music Charts while also landing on the iTunes charts for release date at #103 on the Top 200, #10 on Rock, and #2 on Metal! This marks the band’s first ever Billboard chart debut! “War of Will” also peaked at #3 on the US iTunes metal chart on the day of release.

“another essential listen for thrash fans worldwide” Big Cheese Magazine (UK)

“The level of musical and compositional progression here is startling, to be quite honest…The effect as a whole is energetic and fist-pumping to the extreme, ushering in a beacon of hope for American metal in 2013.” Zero Tolerance Magazine (UK)

“Get ready for Battlecross to move up to headlining status by the conclusion of this album’s touring cycle. War Of Will is a rallying cry for American metal, synthesizing the best of all sides of the extreme, thrash, and modern genres to champion for the genre.” DeadRhetoric.com

THE OCEAN Prepares For Summer Slaughter

Progressive sound contortionists THE OCEAN will return to North America as part of the seventh annual Summer Slaughter Tour later this month. Presented by Indie Merch Store, ESP and Guitar World, the band level stages nightly alongside the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, Revocation, Aeon and more. Following their Stateside takeover, THE OCEAN will play select shows throughout Taiwan, Hong Kong, China and Russia with an additional European sprint in the Fall to be announced in the coming weeks.

Comments guitarist Robin Staps,“We’re stoked to get out on the road again! When I started this band 12 years ago, I would have never expected that it would eventually become possible for us one day, to play shows in Sichuan, China, or near the Baikal Lake in Siberia. These will be our first shows ever in Mexico and Taiwan, too. Good times ahead, see you people out there on one of these continents tasting your local beer and food!”

In the meantime, check out a clip of vocalist Loïc Rossetti performing with Dillinger in 2010HERE.

THE OCEAN will be touring in support of Pelagial, their critically lauded, maritime-themed studio offering, which entered the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #10 upon its first week of release!

Their most profound work to date, Pelagial is a 53-minute exploratory composition written, recorded, mixed and intended to-be-performed-live as one single piece of music. Centered around all five pelagic depth zones — epipelagic, mesopelagic, bathyalpelagic, abyssopelagic, and hadopelagic – Pelagial purposefully submerges its listeners into an aquatic journey that is at once tranquil and terrifying. Pelagial begins rather light and becomes progressively heavier and slower as the band reaches the unfathomable depths of the hadopelagic zone, characterized by complete darkness and a thousandfold increased pressure as compared to surface level. Said Decibel Magazine, “Where the band was once steeped in sludgy noise/metalcore with orchestral interludes, they’ve become more luxurious, experimental and textural. Pelagial…further continues that shift, working on multi-tiered levels and drawing from DEP-inspired chaos, Opeth-like moods and Between The Buried And Me genre fiddling. It’s an album that strives to be all things at once without crossing into a ‘look-at-me’ mess.”

***THE OCEAN headlining shows

“The sixth album from German post-metal doombringers THE OCEAN is huge… In the course of the record, tender piano interludes get stomped on by Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings work next to bulldozing double-kick work, and, at the end, the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos.” – Spin

 “…a hallmark album for a gifted team of artisans…Pelagial is one of the most invested albums THE OCEAN has yet conceived. Prepare to be not only submerged but actually touched by this album.” — Blabbermouth

“Pelagial is brilliantly written, expertly executed and filled with the kind of songwriting most bands can only dream of.” – Crave Online

“Pelagial resonates so deeply because its sonic continuity is matched with shifting, unified composition. The album viscerally depicts the spectrum of submersion while highlighting the musicians’ versatility and cohesion. The band has never written more intriguing music, and THE OCEAN COLLECTIVEhas never been a more apt name.” – MetalSucks 

“…a journey within itself…” — Metal Insider

“…destined to be one of the year’s best releases.” – Echoes And Dust

“Creating music with a real meaning cannot be taken as a hobby. Either you put everything into it and make your message known or you don’t. Their correlation between diving deeper into the ocean and diving into the inner workings of the human mind is astounding…you would be a complete fool to not pick up this true work of art.” – New Noise Magazine

We’re all incredibly pleased with how this one turned out, it’s going to be a very pissed off record but will also have some twists and turns to spice things up. We feel like this is some of our best playing laid down to date, can’t wait for everyone to check out the new tunes!”

The band has teamed up with Loudwire to present an exclusive post European video tour diary. Check out what happens when these guys hit Europe with Dying Fetus HERE.

Frontman Dave Davidson tried to recall the video diary…

 

What’s up guys? We’ve just posted a video from our most recent Euro tour with Dying Fetus, JFAC and Cerebral Bore. We had a blast on that run, sadly I don’t remember most of it because of rampant alcohol consumption but this tour diary is bringing back fond memories. Check that shit out!

The band will take a quick break from working on their new album this Spring when they hit the road with Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood, and Ramming Speed. REVOCATION joins the tour in Bucksport, ME on April 28th and will play six shows winding things down in Toronto on May 3rd.

REVOCATION Enter the Studio

Massachusetts metallers REVOCATION have entered the studio to begin work on the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2011 Relapse Records release Chaos of Forms. This will be the first full length album with bass player Brett Bamberger who joined the band in 2012 and was featured on the band’s last EP Teratogenesis which was released by Scion AV.

Frontman Dave Davidson commented on the start of the recording process:

“What’s up guys, today we’ve entered the studio to record our upcoming full length with long time producer and drinking buddy Pete Rutcho. We’ll be recording the drums at The Brick Hithouse Studio and then finish up the rest of the tracking at Damage Studios. This is shaping up to be some of our most aggressive material to date and will be the next logical step forward from our last EP. The songs on this upcoming record have a great deal of diversity to them and employ a variety of different techniques, tunings and tempos. We are incredibly stoked to begin this process and can’t wait for our fans to hear the finished product. More details as they develop…”

The band will take a quick break from working on their new album this Spring when they hit the road with Goatwhore, 3 Inches of Blood, and Ramming Speed. REVOCATION joins the tour in Bucksport, ME on April 28th and will play six shows winding things down in Toronto on May 3rd. A complete list of dates is below.

Interview with Bob Meadows of A Life Once Lost (In Pittsburgh at Garfield Art Works 12/14)

A LIFE ONCE LOST roars into Pittsburgh at the Garfield Art Works next Friday, December 14 with Revocation and Ken Mode. Bob Meadows, lead vocals, took some time to speak to Pittsburgh Music Magazine about the frustrations of the music business, playing Pittsburgh, taking and giving vocal lessons, their new release “Ecstatic Trance”, and the inspiration for the lyrics behind “Madness is God”, check it out by listening here…

A LIFE ONCE LOST has existed on the forward edge of modern metal, where progression and innovation collide with tradition, since its inception. From day one, the path the ALOL have blazed has not only been defiant but also their own.
A LIFE ONCE LOST was formed in ’99 in the Philadelphia suburbs by Doug Sabolick (guitars) and Bob Meadows (vocals). The nascent band immediately forged a noisy, high-impact wall of sound combining dissonant, modern aggression with the hallmarks of traditional metal. Almost as soon as ALOL had songs, the band started cutting their teeth in the Philly-area DIY circuit playing alongside their peers in Converge, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Lamb of God, God Forbid, and more.
Early releases followed on Deathwish, Inc. and Robotic Empire, and ramped up to 03’s punishing ‘A Great Artist’, their first proper full-length. ‘A Great Artist’ saw them take hold of their dark, rhythmic sound and took A LIFE ONCE LOST from a Northeast favorite to a true national band. It was the catalyst that enabled them to get signed to Ferret Records and to then embark on their first national tour(s) alongside Between the Buried & Me among others.
Then ALOL released its’ sophomore album, the more refined ‘Hunter’, in ‘05 and moved to the forefront of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal. The band conquered America for the next 2 years touring as part of Ozzfest 2006, as well as direct support tours alongside Lamb of God, Clutch, Opeth, Strapping Young Lad, As I Lay Dying, Every Time I Die, High on Fire and more.
Their 3rd album ‘Iron Gag’, released in ’07, saw significant critical acclaim. That album had ALOL introducing traditional rock grooves and a more confident swagger into their already-explosive sound. The ensuing ‘Iron Gag’ tour saw the band crisscross North America and Europe, from Alaska to Mexico and London to Moscow respectively, once again alongside High on Fire; The Dillinger Escape Plan + new tour mates, Suicide Silence, and Job for a Cowboy.

At the end of the ‘Iron Gag’ World Tour in ‘09, they begin practicing again only to find fractures in the band. After a year plus of writing, Sabolick and Meadows were faced with their most difficult decisions yet. In order to realize their vision for the next evolution of A LIFE ONCE LOST, they needed to scrap almost all of the new material; cut ties with the other members, and start again on their own.

ALOL’s process was arduous, and required Bob Meadows and Doug Sabolick to rebuild everything from the ground back up. The writing process was intense while the two tried to meld a diverse range of influences – Killing Joke to Can, King Crimson to Kraftwerk, Fela Kuti and more – while respecting and remaining true to the sonic art that they had always traveled.

Three years in the making, A LIFE ONCE LOST’s new album ‘Ecstatic Trance’ (Season of Mist), is the product of that unwavering determination and raises their patented rhythmic attack to hypnotic new levels of precision and expression. Huge, jagged riffs and churning, syncopated rhythms are the blueprint for the emotive guitar-playing and explosive vocals of Sabolick and Meadows respectively. Dark washes of melody and ominous Hammond Organ tones color epic tracks such as “Madness Is God, “Something Awful”, and “The Blues”, giving their material a bold, raw sense of expression unlike any they’ve shown before. ‘Ecstatic Trance’ is one of 2012’s best metal albums, and proves that the path of A LIFE ONCE LOST is always moving forward.

REVOCATION’s North American Headlining Tour and New EP

Massachusetts metallers REVOCATION have announced a North American tour for this fall presented by Scion A/V. The tour will begin October 18th in Trenton, NJ and run through November 14th in Montreal, QC. Support on the tour will come from A Life Once Lost and KEN mode. A complete list of dates can be found below.

In conjunction with the tour, Scion A/V is releasing a new EP from REVOCATION later this month. The EP is titled Teratogenesis and features the first recordings with the band’s new bass player Brett Bamberger. Frontman Dave Davidson commented on the band’s new bassist:

“Hey what’s up guys, just wanted to give everyone an update on what’s been happening in the world of Revo. As some of you have already noticed Anthony has parted ways with the band. The split was amicable and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. We have recently enlisted the services of Brett Bamberger and we are incredibly stoked to have him on board as an official member. Come see us live and buy him a beer.”

In other REVOCATION tour news, the band is currently on the road in Europe with label mates DYING FETUS as part of “The Womb to Waste” tour. Dates can be found below.
