IRON MAIDEN
WE ARE ALL Blood Brothers!

kamelot_rnrindustries-1It was a hot day in San Bernardino Saturday but that didn’t stop the crowd from coming out and Moshing! When Exodus hit the stage the pits started and never slowed down tell Iron Maiden was done playing their final encore! When you go to an Iron Maiden show they remind you that age is just a number from the 25,000+ fans that were in attendance that consisted of long time fans in their senior years to young kids, I saw one young man attending the show with his dad who was no more then 5 but had hair down to his waist and his denim vest full of patches eager to watch the show! Not to mention the guys that are in the band who run around like they are still in their 20’s for the entire show!

But what makes an Iron Maiden show so special is the message that they give to their fans, when so many bands are using music to push their political beliefs (where not going to name any names!) Bruce introduced ‘Blood Brothers’ by pointing out all the flags in the audience and how we come from all over the world and all walks of life and that we are there for one thing to Enjoy Music Together! That it doesn’t matter who we love-whether it’s a man or a women, what religion we practice- even if you worship Darth Vader, that we all came there together, alive and that we were going to leave there the same way! To look out for one another (especially in the pit) that we are all there to have a great time, drink some beers and listen to our favorite music! So grab your flag and wave it proudly especially if that flag happens to be an Iron Maiden Flag!

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.

Check out what critics have to say about Blood In, Blood Out!

 

Yahoo Music calls Blood In, Blood Out, “one of the most anticipated heavy metal records of the year”, and Rolling Stone calls the band “among the first and best” of thrash metal and touts the album as “recommended”.

 

“Pared down to a simple sentence, this album is fucking sick,” chimed the first web review for the record, penned by Blabbermouth’s Ray Van Horn, Jr. Shortly after, Decibel Magazine’s Kevin Stewart Panko gave great praise to both returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza and guitarists Gary Holt and Lee Altus, saying tracks on the record feature, “Sousa spitting forth from a venomous thesaurus and some of the most adventurous lead work that Holt and Altus have ever recorded.” The EXODUS rhythm section receives equal praise from About.com Heavy Metal’s Dave Schalek, who states, “[Tom] Hunting shows no signs of slowing down and bassist Jack Gibson anchors down the album’s bottom heavy sound.” “With the return of vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza, the true follow-up to Tempo of the Damned has finally arrived in the form of Blood In, Blood Out one of the best heavy releases of the year,” adds PunkNews.org.

 

EXODUS deliver the definite lesson in violence,” adds Rue Morgue’s Aaron Lupton, while Outburn Magazine offered positive remarks in both review and feature form. “A vintage thrash metal voice placed on top of an EXODUS sound again harnessed to perfection by Andy Sneap has resulted in an album that batters the eardrums as effectively as it boils the blood,” remarks Scott Alisoglu. The most recent stellar-rating review comes from New Noise Magazine, in which Brandon Ringo states, Once again, EXODUS has proven exactly why they have attained such a legendary stature over the years and are considered one of the greatest bands in thrash metal even 30 years later!”

EXODUS to Perform at Kirk Hammett’s Fear Festival in SF

Kirk Hammett Announces Encore Performance with EXODUS at the Upcoming FEAR FestEvil

fearfestevil_2014

Just when you thought things couldn’t get more brutal…

Recently, Bay Area thrash legends EXODUS announced that they will perform at the very first FEAR FestEvil, taking place on February 7 at Regency Ballroom (located at 1300 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94108).

Today, new information has surfaced – FEAR FestEvil creator and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett has announced that he will not only perform at the festival himself, but will also take part in a special encore performance with a blast from his past – that’s right, EXODUS! This is a can’t-miss event!

Guitarist Gary Holt adds, “EXODUS is stoked as fuck to announce that none other than Kirk Von Hammett himself will be jamming with us during our encore at FEAR FestEvil! What song? Hmm, that remains to be seen! I guess you will have to be there to find out!
Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime moment! For more information about the fest and to buy tickets, visit http://www.fearfestevil.com/.

When it comes to thrash metal, in particular Bay Area thrash, EXODUS are one
of the true Godfathers. Formed in 1980 by guitarist Tim Agnello, drummer Tom
Hunting, bassist Carlton Melson and some other six-stringer called Kirk
Hammett, Agnello soon left, allowing Hammett’s guitar tech Gary Holt to step
up and in. Hammett then stumbled across Paul Baloff, a demo was recorded,
Hammett left to join some other upstarts, Rick Hunolt took the other guitar
and the rest became history. Their 1984 debut Bonded By Blood is a stonewall
genre classic, and with cranium crunching classics such as ‘”A Lesson In
Violence”, “Strike Of The Beast” and more.

EXODUS can promise that this show will not be a calm or gentle soiree… more than an aural beatdown.

The current line-up of Gary Holt on guitar, Lee Altus on guitar, Tom Hunting, on drums Jack Gibson on bass and Rob Dukes on vocals has been in place since 2005. EXODUS‘ last album was 2010’s Exhibit B: The Human Condition on Nuclear Blast Records, and the band have just started working on new material for a prospective release later in 2014.
