BATTLECROSS w/ Soilwork, Unearth, Wovenwar, Darkness Divided:
Winter Warriors Tour w/ Allegaeon, Necromancing The Stone:
BATTLECROSS will be touring in support of their latest album, Rise To Power, which landed on the Billboard charts at #103, marking the band’s second Billboard chart entry (2013’s War Of Will entered the charts at #130). To preview and purchase Rise To Power, visit: metalblade.com/battlecross.
Allegaeon will release their new album, Proponent For Sentience, this Friday, September 23rd. Produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation), Proponent For Sentience is a musically complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. With a lyrical arc rooted in science-fiction yet uncomfortably encroaching upon the reality of the present, it captures the Fort Collins, Colorado natives at their most ambitious and accomplished, pushing the boundaries even further than on their three previous critically acclaimed full-lengths. To preview and purchase Proponent For Sentience, visit: metalblade.com/allegaeon.
If flaccid, identikit, breakdown-laden “metal” is the disease, Necromancing The Stone’s recently released debut full-length, Jewel Of The Vile, is the cure. Featuring current/former members of Arsis(guitarist James Malone), The Absence (drummer Jeramie Kling), The Black Dahlia Murder (bassist Ryan “Bart” Williams), and Brimstone Coven (guitarist Justin Wood and vocalist “Big” John Williams), Necromancing The Stone “has brought back the glory days [of ’80s heavy metal] with unbridled spirit”(Loudwire.com).
