Sven de Caluwe and Ken Bedene of Aborted discussed touring & Necrotic Manifesto

Aborted-2014-Album

For over ten years, Aborted have rivaled their brutal death metal piers with their mind-blowing, heavy riffs and gut churning vocals. The band has had constant lineup changes, more than 25 past members, but has consistently been lead by the sole original member, vocalist Sven de Caluwe. Aborted has members from both Belgium, and the United States, but this distance doesn’t stop them from mastering the guttural disembowelment they provide, leaving their fans yearning for more.

Destruction

The first time I saw Destruction live was back in 2011 in Bogota, Colombia at the famous Rock Al Parque festival, they played in front of 100.000 metalheads, and they just blew everyone’s mind. I knew that for this North American tour would be a bit different, so the expectations of a small and intimate show were totally fulfilled as they played a show of epic proportions a couple of days ago at Joe’s Grotto here in Phoenix, AZ  Read more

Terji & Gunnar of TYR checked in with The Age Of Metal

TYR

The live essence of a band like TYR is their unique music style, their mix of traditional Faroese melodies with metal is what catapulted their career since their very beginning.
