11.03.2005, Dynamo Werk 21, Zurich (Swi)More...
This little show along with the Heavy Demons and Kruger was our warm up show for the upcoming tour which was supposed to start on sunday the 12th. the show was organized by the local Hellfire promotion who regularly book shows at this venue, giving more or less known underground bands a spot to perform live in the middle of zurich. melodic thrashers Heavy Demons opened up, followed by doom loaden Kruger who almost destroyed the place. then it was up to us, and as we had to expect for the coming two weeks, we faced an almost pure metal crowd but the experience couldn't have been better - the crowd went crazy from the first minute on and we were pretty gutted as we had to stop after the encores. but we sure were ready for the road...

Last weekend Maroon finished their successful three-week European tour with Switzerland’s Cataract. Even though the bags are not completely unpacked and the laundry is not done yet new duties are already awaiting the likeable five-piece from Nordhausen.
First of all a few words from Maroon on the tour:
Back home!!!! The “Triumph Of Hate”-tour is finished and it has been just awesome and a huge success. Above all, we’d like to extend thanks to the guys in Cataract - it was really fantastic to be on tour with them, for us it was definitely the best tour we have played so far... Thanks to MAD Tourbooking, Century Media as well as Alveran Records and all promoters. Special thanks go out to all the fans in England, Poland and Germany. England was really mind-blowing and unexpected for us. In Poland our shows had always been an event, but this time it is hard to find the right words for the crowd and the action. Definitely THE show of the whole our! Thanks and HAIL to Poland! Special thanks to our road crew Pappe, Hendrik, Matze and Martin for the good work and lots of fun.
Although the tour is over now we will not sit back and do nothing, but will continue playing shows in December and January, amongst others with our brothers from Heaven Shall Burn again. Caliban, Hatesphere and Cataract will be in on it, too.
Everyone who hasn’t had enough of the Maroon live-machine can see us on stage in February on a six-week tour all across Europe with the Crossover forefathers Downset. We are really looking forward to this tour and hope that we can reach some new people besides our fans. Thanks for the support!!!More...
This year, Metalunderground.com is figuratively handing out an award of its own for "Best Metal Album of The Year." Everyone else hands out "best of year" awards or lists, so why shouldn't we? Afterall, the staff here at metalunderground.com has very diverse tastes, and we know our metal. So this year I asked each of our writers to pick their top 5 albums of 2004 and rank them form 1 to 5. What I saw was a lot of different opinions, but among the differences, two albums rose to the top.
Without further ado...[drum roll, please]...the winner of Metalunderground.com's "Best Metal Album of The Year" honor for 2004 is: More...
