The Black Dahlia Murder: Live Photos from House of Blues In Chicago, IL!

Like I said before, I’m a pretty big fan of The Black Dahlia Murder and I rarely miss one of their shows. I know the House of Blues Chicago has good stage lighting, so I definitely didn’t want to miss this! Playing their latest album, “Nightbringers“, in its entirety, The Black Dahlia Murder also threw in some fan favorites such

Slayer: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Slayer!!! Where do I even start? One of the “Big Four” of thrash metal. Arguably the heaviest of the “Big Four”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve even seen Slayer. 10? 15? 20? I can’t remember. All I remember is a great show with an absolutely insane crowd every time. When I heard that Slayer were going to

Lamb of God: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

The last band before Slayer was Lamb of God. The guys from Richmond, VA are one of the best acts in metal today.

Trey Azagthoth and crew have been putting out some of

A Slayer show is always intense, but witnessing the

Songkick and Bandsintown do not give a shit that you’re on hiatus — they will still clog up your inbox with show alerts. As such, I ended up going to a few shows even though I was trying to cut back. It worked out pretty great, because it turns out that quality really IS better than quantity. Even though I

Judas Priest Put On A Legendary Show At Barclays Center In Brooklyn!

The iconic Judas Priest returned to Brooklyn last night on their “Redeemer Of Souls” tour and put on an amazing show! As the lights went out, and their historic logo came up on the curtain, the roar from the packed arena was probably heard all across the city. As the curtain dropped, and “Dragonaut” kicked in, you could tell right
