I took a bunch of pictures when I was at the Atreyu, Unearth, Norma Jean and Scars of Tomorrow show in Philadelphia on February 28th, at the Trocadero Theater. Due to weather problems I arrived late so only pictures of Atreyu and Unearth are in the gallery. Head on over to the gallery to check 'em out, click here.
I had the chance to attend the Atreyu, Unearth, Norma Jean and Scars of Tomorrow show on February 28th. The show was at the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia, PA. This is how the night transpired: More...

In support of their new album "Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses," Slipknot did a trans-Canada tour, touching down some of the bigger Canadian cities. I attended the last date (January 16) of the tour at the PNE Forum in Vancouver, BC. I arrived an hour before the doors opened and there was already a long line up of dedicated Slipknot fans, a few of them with masks, waiting in the cold and rain. No offense to anyone under 19, but all-ages shows are annoying because they generally attract teenyboppers and angry kids out to prove how cool they think they are even though they came with their parents. But I was glad to see the crowd wasn't as bad as some other concerts I've been to. However, there was this little boy of about 2-3 years of age, who wore a mask and an oversized Slipknot shirt that went down to his knees. I guess Slipknot appeals to audiences of all ages. More...
UNEARTH recently shot a video for the song 'Zombie Autopilot', off their album "The Oncoming Storm". The cut was directed by Greg Kaplan. More information is to come soon.
Killswitch Engage have posted this message on their official website:
Canada sure loves their metal and is slowly becoming our home away from home. The Slipknot guys have been treating us great so far, Unearth continues to be the coolest dudes around, and the shows have been awesome. Big thanks to the Toronto fans for being so supportive to us when we needed them the most. We love you all...and we'll see you all in HELL!!
Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones was forced to sit out the band's performance in Toronto on Sunday (01/09) due to a "blown-out" throat (as guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz put it in a public announcement before their set). Trevor Phipps from support act Unearth joined Killswitch Engage on stage for a few songs, despite having little knowledge of the lyrics. Two fans who apparently knew the songs were also pulled from the crowd to help out in the vocal department, with one managing to sing the entire song "When Darkness Falls". But after four tracks, and a tired Phipps, the band called it a night.
Killswitch Engage's set list for the Toronto show on January 9 (without singer Howard Jones!):
01. The End Of Heartache
02. Life To Lifeless
03. When Darkness Falls
04. My Last Serenade

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...
