Doro Pesch is one of the original bad girls of metal starting back when she fronted Warlock in the mid-80’s. The German vocalist returns to Empire with some great local support from the likes of A Sound Of Thunder, Echoes Of Solitude, Spellborne and Last Armistice so be sure to get there early!

Comments:
Sapremia is an old school death metal band from New Jersery. They put out a few demos in the early 90s then broke up only to reform in the past 8 years or so. They’ve put out two full lengths in that time and now they’re coming to Baltimore to destroy ear drums.

2nd wave black metal band turn progsters Enslaved are headlining a US tour with stoner gods YOB on a tour you don’t want to miss! I don’t know much about Ecstatic Vision but they seem to be some sort of throwback psych band and are apparently signed to Relapse.

Comments:
Cheif Ike’s is a bar in the Adam’s Morgan section of DC and while they do host bands from time to time, I’ve never heard of a metal band playing there, until now. I’ll be honest I didn’t know who Incite is but apparently it is Phoenix, Arizona based thrash band fronted by Max Cavalera’s step son, Richie Cavalera. I’ve never heard of the other two bands before either, but I mean I’ll be checking this show out just to see how a metal show goes at Chief Ike’s.

Stoner and doom fans won’t want to miss when Elder comes down from Massachusetts to headline this awesome show at the Metro Gallery!

Comments:
NYC based black metal band Mutilation Rites is coming back to the Pinch to put on what will surely be another crushing performance! Richmond’s Occultist is a female-fronted crust metal band that totally shreds as well! This is one hell of a DIY show that metal fans won’t want to miss.

Comments:
It’s been a long time since the UK’s masters of Satanic stoner/doom metal Electric Wizard toured the US and luckily for us they’re coming through our area on April Fools Day (no joke though, this show really is happening!). Opening on the tour is Northern Virginia’s Satan’s Satyrs, a local band of young guys with a throwback sound right out of the 70s. They make sense on this tour though as one of their members now plays bass for Electric Wizard too.

First show of the tour

Comments:
Vital Remains is bringing their unholy death metal to Club Orpheus in Baltimore to kick off their tour with Colorado’s Vale Of Pnath. It’s a bit pricey at $20 but I guess if you missed getting tickets for Electric Wizard you’ve still got a show you can go to.

This 4 date mini-tour will be death meta band Father Befouled’s first live shows in over two years and we’re lucky enough to get one of the dates in Baltimore! What’s even more amazing is that all three of the bands on this tour share a drummer, Wayne Sarantopoulos, and apparently he will be performing triple duty each night behind the kit!

Death Penalty
Metanium
Uncle Jesse

1934 9th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 (map)

Cost:
$10 at the door

Doors:       Ages:
7pm         21+ Only

Notes:
The Facebook event page for this concert is here

Comments:
Axum is an Ethiopian club a couple doors down from DC9 and they rarely host metal shows there. This one isn’t even entirely a metal show, but the final two bands of the night definitely are. Death Penalty is thrash metal inspired by the likes of 80s era Metallica and Megadeth. Metanium has a classic vibe and reminds me a bit of Dio or Judas Priest except all their songs are in Spanish. Not a bad bill at all for a Saturday night in April.

Comments:
Inter Arma is one of the best bands from Richmond right now and really worth checking out if you haven’t yet. They’re like a super pissed off version of Neurosis or something. Yautja is a Tennessee based grind/sludge band named after the species of aliens seen in the Predator movies.

Comments:
Not the most brutal band to arise out of Tampa, Florida in the early 90s, Kamelot has been cranking out epic power metal for decades now. They’re still going strong and will be coming to the Baltimore Soundstage to kick off their 2015 North American tour. Also along for the ride will be Dragonforce, the UK based power metal band with those crazy guitar solos.
