Jinjer And The Agonist Storm The Thekla

There's been no shortage of awesome tours this year. We've seen thrash legends combine forces, bands from different sub-genres unite and pairings as black and heavy as dark matter. With all these having come and gone, it's exciting to have had one more rumble through the UK, as Jinjer and The Agonist took their European tour to this divided island to unify head bangers. Fortunately, when they came to Bristol, they took the show to the perhaps the best venue in the city, The Thekla, a boat with the grit of old school venues yet the romance of the water.

Opening the show this evening was Space Of Variations, who hail from historically fascinating Ukrainian city of Vinnytsya. Much like their countrymen and headliners Jinjer, the band is pretty hard to define, combining metal, rock, hardcore, rap and some electronic influences. The best way one could describe their sound is Madball meets The Crystal Method. Sometimes having so many different sounds can be too much for a band to pull of live, but this quartet were absolutely superb from start to finish. Frontman Dima Kozhuhar is a particular highlight, radiating with intensity throughout the set, without coming across as trying too hard. Not everyone got to the show early tonight, but those that did will know that the latecomers missed out big time. Hopefully there's big things in store for Space Of Variations. More...

Fleshgod Apocalypse Announces North American Tour

Italian orchestral-death metal giants, Fleshgod Apocalypse, will make their triumphant return to North America in 2020 in support of their Veleno album. For the first time in the band’s celebrated career they’ll be doing a full tour accompanied by a classical string quartet, which will be an unprecedented experience for death metal fans.

Fleshgod Apocalypse will be joined by special guests The Agonist on the excursion, that begins in Dallas, TX on March 16 and culminates in Los Angeles on April 6. Ticket on-sales are listed below:

Citi Presale: Tuesday, November 12, 12 PM, Eastern Time
Live Nation/Local Presales: Wednesday, November 13, 10 AM, Local Time
Ticketmaster Presale: Thursday, November 14, 10 AM, Local Time
All Presales End: Thursday, November 14, 10 PM, Local Time
On-sale: Friday, November 15, 10 AM, Local Time

"Once again, we’re sharing the stage with a wonderful string ensemble and, this time, in some of the best live music clubs across North America. About a year ago, we had the pleasure to perform a special show in our hometown with a classical string quintet. We filmed the entire event and, a few months later, it became our first ever official live Blu-Ray, An Evening In Perugia. Right after that, we’ve been literally flooded with requests from all over the world to make it happen abroad. Everyone in our team, including band, management and label, could only work at making it happen as soon as possible.

"So here we are, bringing the full experience across North America in March/April 2019. For the first time in the history of Death Metal, a band is touring with a full string ensemble. Every night will be a night to remember, featuring the longest set we’ve ever played in the continent. No excuses to miss it then, every single detail is going to be perfect and, above all, it might be a once-in-a-lifetime event… Don’t hesitate and get your ticket before it’s too late! Let’s write a new page of Death Metal history together!" - Francesco Paoli

The Agonist’s Singer Blames Ex-Singer For CD-Delay

The Agonist’s singer Vicky Psarakis recently told Rock Confidential speaking of the difficulties the band had with their impending album “Orphans“ (due out now on September 20 via Rodeostar Records):

"Basically, the main thing is that we didn't have a label at the time. And that is for reasons aside from the music. A lot of things happen that I personally don't deal with at all. I don't even wanna deal with it. I'm just here to write music and sing. Some people out there didn't want us to release this album and we just kept really, really pushing and pushing and we almost considered just releasing it on our own — which isn't a smart business decision. But we were, I think after six months, we were frustrated and sitting on this album that's so good and we couldn't do anything about it. And then finally, Napalm reached out to us and proposed to release it under a sub-label of theirs called Rodeostar. And as far as we're concerned, we're using all the same resources from Napalm — the same team of people, same social media outlets. So we were, like, 'Okay, let's do it.'"

Pressed about who didn’t want the band to release the album, Vicky went more into detail telling: More...
