“Evil Dead II”.’ ‘Dawn of the Dead.’ ‘The Godfather: Part 2.’ ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ All sequels that are better than the original. Add ‘KillThrax II’ to that list. Back by popular demand, KillThrax is coming at ya again my friends.” — Scott Ian, Anthrax

What do you do when you’ve co-headlined one of the hottest metal touring packages of 2017? Well, like any rock band that cares about its fans, you do it again, but you take it to the places that missed out the first time. And that’s exactly what metalcore masterminds Killswitch Engage and legendary thrash/metal masters Anthrax are announcing today — “KillThrax II,” a 29-city tour of North America presented by SiriusXM that kicks off January 25 in Montreal, Canada and will zig-zag across the continent to wind up in Portland, ME on March 4.

Havok will serve as the opening act for the entire tour.

Said Anthrax’s Frank Bello, “After playing so many amazing shows last year with our friends Killswitch Engage, I’m psyched for round two of KillThrax, and we’re adding Havok to the heaviness!!” Added Charlie Benante, “The shows were great, the audiences were great, and we all felt great about the whole thing, so why not do it again?”

“We are looking forward to the next leg of the ‘KillThrax’ tour,” said KsE singer Jesse Leach. “We had a blast on the first one and we enjoyed sharing the stage with the humble legends Anthrax! There is such a synergy between the two bands and a certain unity that is infectious, so it was a no brainer to put this package back together and hit the road. It’s an honor and we are excited for these shows, the fans, and the good times! KillThrax is gearing up for round two, so let’s keep the party rolling!”

As with the inaugural KillThrax tour, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax will rotate the show’s closing slot on KillThrax II. Fans can also expect a night of high energy, musical ferocity and sheer intensity, and what one reviewer called “an incredible night of live music with heavy hitters that provided hours of escape into metal bliss.”

Slayer, Anthrax, and Death Angel! What an amazing bill for metal fans! We also have the extreme pleasure of doing shows supporting Anthrax on this run as well. But what will bring us the most excitement is the bond we have with all the hardcore DEATH ANGEL fans out there and we look forward to solidifying that bond with all the headlining shows we have on this run. We have new songs! We are focused, well-rehearsed, and anxious to deliver a lethal performance every night we step on that stage. Thank you once again for giving us the opportunity to do so.”

# Anthrax, DEATH ANGEL only
DEATH ANGEL will be touring in support of their newest full-length The Evil Divide, released earlier this
Spring via Nuclear Blast Records. The Evil Divide was once again recorded at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Deicide), who previously worked on 2010’sRelentless Retribution and 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City.
Three decades into their celebrated career, DEATH ANGEL remains as hungry as ever. As a result, uncompromising urgency and unpredictability drive The Evil Divide. The group — vocalist Mark Osegueda, lead guitarist Rob Cavestany, guitarist Ted Aguilar, drummer Will Carroll, and bassistDamien Sisson — satiate the appetite for buzzsaw speed riffs, double bass mayhem, and scorching vocals over the course of ten new anthems.The Evil Divide stands out as the culmination of thirty-plus years of music for DEATH ANGEL. It kicked off with legendary debut, The Ultra-Violence, in 1987. The classic Frolic Through The Parkbegan to cement their legacy and even earned the distinction of landing on Loudwire’s list of the “Top Ten Thrash Albums NOT Released By The Big 4.” The group broke up following 1990’s Act III only to reunite in 2004 on Art Of Dying for the next generation.

In 2008, DEATH ANGEL teamed with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains, Rush, Mastodon) for Killing Season recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. In 2010, Relentless Retribution boasted a cameo from virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela, while 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood bowed at #72 on the Billboard Top 200, selling 5,400 copies first-week and earning the group’s first-ever entry onto that respective chart.

The Norwegian also has your romantic complimentary dining including a three-course meal, in this case all rules “walk the plank” if you like to dress up you can but this is the Motörboat and its Metal chaos through out the day and night.

SECOND ANNUAL MOTÖRHEAD’S MOTÖRBOAT

imageMarch 18, 2015

SECOND ANNUAL
MOTÖRHEAD’S MOTÖRBOAT
SET FOR SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 2

NORWEGIAN SKY WILL BECOME
‘THE LOUDEST BOAT IN THE WORLD’
WITH PERFORMANCES FROM
SLAYER,
MOTÖRHEAD,
ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, HATEBREED, EXODUS, CROBOT,
PHIL CAMPBELL’S ALL STARR BAND AND MORE

DURING CRUISE FROM MIAMI WITH STOPS IN NASSAU AND
GREAT STIRRUP CAY IN THE BAHAMAS

“…a metalhead’s dream. Think Hard Rock Hell-with-hot-tubs.
On the high seas. With a hard on.”
–Classic Rock, October 2, 2014

Motörhead’s Motörboat will embark on its second voyage September 28 through October 2, 2015 on Norwegian Sky, departing Port Miami, with stops in Nassau and the private picturesque island of Great Stirrup Cay in The Bahamas. The Loudest Boat In The World will feature performances from some of the greatest heavy rock bands in the world, including Slayer, Motörhead, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Hatebreed, Exodus, Crobot, Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band, Motor Sister, Kyng, Fireball Ministry, Huntress, and more.

Motörhead’s Motörboat offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share an experience with their favorite bands and to see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship and on the island of Great Stirrup Cay.

Staterooms go on sale Wednesday, March 25 at 2:00 PM ET at www.MotorheadCruise.com.

Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, “And so the Motörboat sets sail one more time – better get your tickets now, or be left sobbing on the dock! Oh – and we promise not to run out of beer this time!”

Slayer’s Kerry King says, “Slayer is crashing the Motörboat party!! I, personally, will be keeping the bar in business. Hell will be coming with us. Light it up!!!”

Motörhead–the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time–are celebrating their 40th anniversary and recently returned to the studio to begin work on their 22nd studio album. The band’s song “Heartbreaker”–from their mammoth Aftershock album, which debuted at #22 on the Billboard 200–was nominated in the “Best Metal Performance” category at this year’s Grammy Awards. In 2005, Motörhead won the Grammy in the same category for the song “Whiplash.” Through tenacity, hard work, and a deep-seated ability to produce an original, face-melting sound, Motörhead–Lemmy Kilmister (bass, vocals), Phil Campbell (guitar) and Mikkey Dee (drums)–has become one of the most popular bands in the world with a fanbase that is second to none. www.imotorhead.com

The Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot wrote that the five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning Slayer is “one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre.” Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, having been named “Best Live Band” by numerous media outlets including Revolver, SPIN, and Metal Hammer. With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, Slayer remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. Slayer recently formed its own label imprint that will be distributed worldwide through Nuclear Blast, and plans to release a new album in 2015. Slayer–Kerry King (guitar), Tom Araya (bass/vocals), Paul Bostaph (drums) and Gary Holt (touring guitarist)–will tour extensively to support the new music. www.slayer.net

2015 marks the first excursion on Norwegian Sky for Motörhead’s Motörboat. The contemporary ship offers 13 complimentary and specialty dining options, 12 bars and lounges, a coffee bar, an outdoor pool, and five hot tubs. While onboard, guests can try their luck in the Sky Club Casino, relax in the onboard spa and get their heart pumping in the fitness center or full basketball court.

For the debut Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise in 2014, an international, multigenerational audience from over 30 countries came together to celebrate the legacy of the cruise’s iconic namesake and escape into five days of true rock ’n’ roll living with no holds barred. Highlighted by a pair of ear-splitting performances from Motörhead themselves, Motörhead’s Motörboat 2014 featured more than 30 performances by 15 of rock and metal’s top artists, including heavy metal all-star band Metal Allegiance, Anthrax, Testament, Down, and Zakk Wylde.

Writing about last year’s experience, RollingStone.com proclaimed, “Anthrax, Lemmy Kilmister, hundreds of metalheads and a naked, inflatable doll make the Motörboat cruise completely unforgettable…Motörboat brought heavy metal to the high seas and featured a previously unseen combination of gambling, belly-flopping, shirtlessness, guitar soloing and even yoga [September 29, 2014].”

An international, multigenerational audience from over 30 countries came together to celebrate the legacy of the cruise’s iconic namesake and escape into five days of true rock ’n’ roll living with no holds barred, highlighted by a pair of ear-splitting performances from Motörhead themselves.

As seating for this event is limited, if you are interested in attending, please send an email, along with your name, phone number and the number of seats to: info@diocancerfund.org

The weekend will kick off on Friday, May 15 with a Celebrity Rock ‘n Bowl tournament at PINZ Bowling Center in Studio City.  It will be a fun evening of bowling, entertainment and a silent auction, which will include bowling pins autographed by Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, YES, Anthrax, Metallica and many others.

Rock N Roll Industries Backstage pass to the 5th Annual Golden Gods Awards 2013

 
On May 2, 2013 the Golden Gods Awards took place at Club Nokia, celebrating its 5th year as one of the heaviest award shows to ever take place this side of the abyss, and I had a backstage pass to witness and experience it all! The night was filled with surprises, and special tributes, paying homage to the late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who passed away earlier that morning.  May you shred in peace Jeff.  After collecting my credentials, I headed straight to the action, the VIP lounge. Depending on what badge you received, a really sick gift bag provided by Affliction Clothing was there to greet you as you walked in to Golden God Heaven.  In my bag was some seriously sick gear!  Just to name a few treats, there was a Metallica documentary, Black Sabbath and Slpiknot  DVD in Blue Ray, a Samson Tuner (that I will totally use on my guitar), limited edition headphones by Orange Amplification, and guitar strings, which you can never have too much of!
