The Age of Metal speaks to Jason Keyser of Origin about Omnipresent at The Summer Slaughter Tour

There are some mind-blowing acts at this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour, but none more impressive than Origin. Origin is one of the most iconic technical death metal bands in history. And since the release of their newest album Omnipresent, they only impress the crowd more. There is nothing better than watching the crazy Origin solos performed in person. Hail space metal.

Ben Falgoust of Goatwhore talked about Constricting Rage of the Merciless at The Summer Slaughter Tour

Goatwhore is a band that’s easily distinguishable by their grungy yet versatile sound. This unique band has conquered the metal scene with unorthodox tracks and a brutal show to match. And this year with their newest release Constricting Rage of the Merciless, The Summer Slaughter Tour has never seen anything so grimy in its existence. All I can say is this band is definitely a

Fallujah talked to us about: The Flesh Prevails, Future Touring, and The Summer Slaughter Tour

Picture by: Derek Carr Fallujah is by far one of the most anticipated bands on this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour. And right after Fallujah releases their latest masterpiece titled The Flesh Prevails, I couldn’t think of a better time to see such a mesmerizing band live. Their newest album received only positive feedback from the fans (and from me in my review). These are the

Jensen of The Haunted talked to us about Exit Wounds

After two years of silence, and a hiatus that ended with the band’s return to the spotlight at this year’s 70.000 tons of metal cruise. The Haunted will release a new album this August 25th (Europe), and September 2nd (North America), the new record titled Exit Wounds sees the return of former members; Marco Aro (vocals) and Adrian Erlandsson (drums) who rejoined the band in 2013, and new member

Mia Coldheart of Crucified Barbara on In The Red

There is rare occasions in which you can find bands that can easily produce rock and roll with such passion, that the result is so natural and addictive that you get floored as soon you listen their new music. Well, Crucified Barbara from Sweden are one of those bands.

Bill Robinson of Decrepit Birth talked to us about their next album and The Summer Slaughter Tour 2014

Decrepit Birth is no stranger to The Summer Slaughter Tour. But being one of the most iconic bands in technical death metal, they are definitely an act that everyone should watch. By far one of my personal favorites on this year’s roster, Decrepit Birth blows away the crowd with their dexterous musicianship and energetic stage presence. Because of this, the crowd goes crazy every time.

Accept – Blind Rage (2014)

The third chapter on the new age of Accept will be released on August 19th (USA) August 15th (Europe) under the name of Blind Rage. After their return in 2010 with Blood Of The Nations, and the following up release Stalingrad (2012), the band releases this year and album that could be considered as ‘One of their most resounding and definitive records to date’.

Helmuth of Belphegor talked to us about Conjuring the Dead and Touring

Belphegor has always been the band to stand out in extreme metal. They are one of the bands that always alters their belligerent sound, yet stay true to their unorthodox roots. And with their newest release titled Conjuring the Dead, they will continue to dominate.

Summer Slaughter 2014. State Theater St. Petersburg, FL (07/29/14)

The Summer Slaughter Tour is one of the tours I look forward to most to attending every year. All of the most nefarious acts of death metal and progressive metal in one place truly makes it the most brutal tour of the year. In 2014 Summer Slaughter announced one of the best line-ups it’s ever had. The headliner is Morbid Angel, and supporting are awesome

Sam Totman of Dragonforce talked to us about Maximum Overload

Dragonforce is a well-known power metal band, perhaps one of the best known out there. This year the U.K sextet is coming back with a new album titled, Maximum Overload. The album is the reaffirmation of the trademark sound that Dragonforce had built during the last 15 years (really fast riffs, high-pitched vocals and blasting drums).

Belphegor – Conjuring the Dead (2014)

Belphegor’s most recent masterpiece will prove that they are more than another extreme metal band. Conjuring The Dead is both everything we know about Belphegor, and a Belphegor we’ve never seen yet. This album will persuade and amaze the listener, completely submitting themselves to the band that is the apex of everything unorthodox. With one listen, Belphegor will make the listener become aware of both

Crucified Barbara – In The Red (2014)

In 2012, Crucified Barbara shocked the world with their album The Midnight Chase, which was a combination of straight heavy metal and aggressive lyrics. With that album the band was able to visit places like Brazil, and their first ever North American tour. In 2014, the Swedish ladies of Crucified Barbara return with In The Red, a new album, and a new heavy metal story. 

Cannabis Corpse – From Wisdom to Baked (2014)

So Cannabis Corpse released a new album. And guess what? It sounds like more Cannabis Corpse! Well they took their awesome song titles from bands such as Death and Gorguts, and I couldn’t be happier! Who is gonna complain about more stoner death metal? Especially since this stoner band doesn’t sound like crap, like most stoner bands do.

Christos Antoniou of Septicflesh talked to us about Titan

Epicness, heaviness, & magnificent musicianship are the only way I can describe a Septicflesh show. Almost a month ago, they released a new album titled, Titan, and how the name indicates that the record is huge in every aspect possible. To celebrate the release of the album, Septicflesh decided to pair up with Italian symphonic death metal pals Fleshgod Apocalypse, American tech death revelation Black

Fallujah – The Flesh Prevails (2014)

To state “Fallujah just released a new album” would be an understatement. This creation is titled “The Flesh Prevails.” An interesting title, because more than flesh prevails with this album; the listener feels their soul emerging with just one listen of this album. This out of body experience defines this album, and keeps the listener coming back. Very few bands can achieve this quality of
