Megadeth’s American Carnage postponed

Official Press Release – 1/7/2010

AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR FEATURING MEGADETH, SLAYER AND TESTAMENT POSTPONED MEGADETH TO ANNOUNCE HEADLINE TOUR FOR MARCH AND APRIL

New York, NY– The much anticipated American Carnage Tour, featuring hard rock behemoths Megadeth, Slayer and Testament has been postponed as Slayer’s bassist/vocalist Tom Araya is in need of back surgery.

While disappointed by the tour’s delay, Megadeth are concerned for Araya and wish him a speedy recovery.

Megadeth are currently scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April, and are rescheduling the American Carnage tour for Summer ’10. Anyone who has purchased an American Carnage ticket can hold onto it until the new dates are announced. Please visit www.megadeth.com for the latest updates.

Boo… I was looking forward to it, but I guess I can hope it’ll get rescheduled on another day when I can go this summer, and hopefully I’ll still get a photo pass.

Fear Factory Redux

28th Apr 09 (Tue) 2 comments

Stomp rock / industro-metallers Fear Factory have reformed with a slightly different but equally awesome lineup.  Burton C. Bell (vocals) and Dino Cazares (guitars) have put ill-will behind them.  They are joined by bassist Byron Stoud and insanely awesome drummer Gene Hoglan

I first heard Gene on Death‘s Symbolic record.  The man is insane.  I saw him live with Testament on the Demonic tour… the Wednesday before Thanksgiving 199-something.  My turkey and gravy were never so “ringing in my ears” before.

Expect twitchy-bleep thrashing, machine gun kick drums in your face, and lyrics about androids / robots taking over your mind (or your job)… sigh.  Yeah, lyrically / archetypically, Burton’s in a rut.  But I dig the music…  Read more over at Blabbermouth‘s blog.
