Downfall Of Gaia is an excellent upcoming black metal band from Germany that is signed to Metal Blade. I’ve seen them live twice before and they are incredible live, you don’t want to miss seeing these guys, especially for just $10. Local support on this show is by the super heavy doomsters Foehammer and the ripping black metal band Myopic.

Black Mess Sale

Event Name:
Black Mess Closing Sale

Venue:
Black Mess Records (website)
3853 Falls Rd, Baltimore, MD 21211 (map)

Notes:
Black Mess is moving to California so they’re closing up shop in Baltimore

Comments:
The couple that runs Black Mess Records in Baltimore is moving to California so they’ll be relocating the store out there. This sale will be going for the final five days that the Baltimore store is open! Black Mess specializes in underground extreme metal from black to thrash to death to doom and they’ve got some really hard to find merch in addition to their collection of obscure (and not so obscure) vinyl, CD and tapes. It’s a bummer that these guys are leaving the area but at least we’ll be lucky enough to get some awesome music on the cheap before they go. If you’ve been meaning to check out the best record store in the area for metal don’t wait, this is your last chance!

Comments:
Machine Head has rescheduled their tour to support their new album, Bloodstone & Diamonds but this time it is coming to the Baltimore Soundstage instead of the Fillmore Silver Spring. Not sure who else will be playing but I think it’s a safe bet that it won’t be Children Of Bodom.

UK’s fathers of grind, Napalm Death, are teaming up with Canadian prog thrashers Voivod for a tour that you’re not going to want to miss. Their stop at the Baltimore SoundStage has lots of killer bands on it too, like gore obsessed death metal band Exhumed and Richmond based Iron Reagan, a crossover thrash band featuring members of Municipal Waste. We’ll also get sets by Black Crown Initiate and Ringworm. That’s a hell of a lot of heavy on one bill!

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.
