Comments:
Quite the line up! Slayer headlines Pier 6 in the inner harbor of Baltimore with guests Lamb Of God and Behemoth. It will be a bit weird since this is a seated venue and like, how are you not supposed to most when you’re watching Slayer, especially if you’re up close?

Uhtcearu is a melodic black metal band from Wisconsin. They are touring to support the 2nd album, For Darkness To Subside and this is their stop in our area. They’re playing with Citadel (featuring members of Ilsa) and Helgamite, a stoner/doom band from Rileyville, Virginia. This show is presented by DCHeavyMetal.com but it isn’t a “metal night” like we put on sometimes, it’s just a kick ass show.

Anathema is one of the old Peaceville Three doom metal bands from the 90s. Their sound has changed over the years however, now they sound more like a post rock band it would seem. Still epic sounding, just not really doomy anymore.

Comments:
What a line up! San Francisco thrashers Exodus are co-headlining with one of the legends of Tampa’s death metal scene, Obituary! If that wasn’t good enough for you they’ve got some killer support from Texas based crossover thrash band Power Trip and German thrash band Dust Bolt. I highly recommend getting there early for Dust Bolt, they are sick and rarely get the chance to come over to the US.

Comments:
Polish death metal band Decapitated are returning to tour the US and they’re playing with a couple of deathcore bands in Thy Art Is Murder and Fallujah. For some reason the hipster black metal band Ghost Bath was added to this bill, which seems totally out of place but hey, maybe they’ll make some new fans.
