Daniel Van and Eric Van Valkenburgh, original members of March To Victory, were interviewed by Kal Getter after their show on Feb 21st. March To Victory was one of the supporting acts on the Voices From The Dark Tour 2013 (Marduk, Moonspell, Inquisition) at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY. Listen to the interview below. The band recently opened for DRI over in Reading, PA.
Born of Chaos Records has issued the following statement about a bomb threat being called in prior to the label's showcase last night:
"As many of you may or may not know, there was a bomb threat sent in to the police, the news and the Trocadero in Philly last night prior to our Born of Chaos Records label showcase at the historic venue. While the police and F.B.I. determined that it was a hoax after sweeping the building with dogs, the e-mail itself was rather threatening.
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came out to our show last night to show their support, all of the bands who still played in light of the threat as well as the extra time it took to search everyone’s gear and person more thoroughly before getting in, the staff of the Trocadero who were absolutely amazing as well as the Philadelphia Police Department and the F.B.I. who did a wonderful job searching the building and allowing the show to continue with very minimal delays. In this day and age threats like this cannot be taken lightly.
"To our friends who opted to stay home because of this threat, much respect to you as well for ensuring your own safety, we’ll catch ya at another gig down the line. At Born of Chaos Records we believe in the family aspect of heavy metal and the true (and not just spoken) support of our metal scene. While we have had to reject bands from being on the label, that is the nature of the beast (hey we’re still new and completely self financed) we support bands from all over and even put entire tours together with complete line-ups of non-label bands that don’t yield us a cent, just to help others in the metal scene get added exposure.
"I just hope that is does not turn out to be someone in our scene that is trying to fuck up what a group of people are dedicating their lives to succeed in. We are aiming for the top, but we want everyone to come with us."
