70000 Tons of Metal: Jason’s Band List for 2019

Hey Metalheads! Jason here. How is it 2019 already?! I can’t believe that a year has gone, and that we are about to embark on another adventure aboard the Independence of the Seas for 70000 Tons of Metal! Last year was my first time ever on a cruise, not to mention 70000 Tons. I’ve never really been interested in cruises

Anthrax: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Security was tight at this venue, and one thing they did was escort us to/from the photo pit. A

Behemoth: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Everyone knows that Slayer has announced their “final” tour. When I saw the lineup, I couldn’t just go as a fan, I had to go there to cover the event! Anthrax, Behemoth, Testament, Lamb of God, and Slayer?! I wish more tours would come around like this one!! The only “unfortunate” (and I’m using that word very loosely) thing about
