Iconic German thrash trio, Destruction, will kick off its North American 30th year anniversary tour this weekend with shared direct support from Vital Remains and Warbringer (who will be alternating each night) plus Pathology. An updated list of all the confirmed shows can be seen below.
Commented Destruction frontman and bassist, Schmier, “A killer package for old-school thrash and death metal freaks! This may be the best set list we’ve ever had – the essence of thrash metal history united with our new anthems. We’ll have more classics than ever in the set, more from the first records for sure.
"Can’t wait to hit the road again!!! Some North American cities have a great audience for this old school sound again, and it wasn’t always like that. The main intention for this second North American tour within a year is that we could not play all markets that we wanted to book last time. Now, we’ll play some new places and return to those cities that gave us a great welcome last year like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Montreal. Warbringer are a perfect match to a Destruction bill. They are one of the best new thrash bands and keep our ‘80s spirit alive. It will be great to have them with us! We’ve played with Vital Remains before; awesome guys and a brutal band. They bring a good variety into the billing. Thrash/death metal is always the best mix, that’s why Pathology complete the show!”
Destruction is touring in support of its 11th studio release, "Day Of Reckoning" (Nuclear Blast) - the first album to feature new drummer, Vaaver (Indukti, ex-Unsun) – which debuted at #54 on the Hard Music Albums chart, #58 on the New Artist/Heatseekers Album chart, and #143 on the Independent Current Albums chart the week following its release in March 2011. The album entered Germany’s Media Control chart at #95. More...
Warbringer has just completed a 7-week North America tour supporting metal titans Iced Earth and Symphony X, but the group is ready to be back on the road again soon. For this next North American tour, the band will join Destruction, Vital Remains, and Pathology from May 8th to June 3rd, and after that, Warbringer will appear at various high-profile Summer festival appearances in Europe. Vocalist John Kevill checked in to comment about these upcoming shows:
"Hey all! Checking in at the end of the ICED EARTH and SYMPHONY X tour. We had a great time with those guys, there was a slew of incredible shows with awesome heavy metal fans in abundance, and a bunch of good times with both of those fine bands! Shame to say goodbye to them, but we're on our way home now to recuperate before beginning out next tour with German thrash metal legends DESTRUCTION, on their 30th anniversary tour! We never rest long, the war rages on! We'll see you guys out on the road again in May, prepare to be annihilated!
"We're also very excited about the way our summer is shaping up. We have about a dozen European festivals confirmed and we look forward to sharing some amazing experiences ravaging the large crowds, big stages and all the fun times to be had with all the other great bands also performing."
The upcoming Warbringer tour dates are as follows: More...
Rose Funeral will be emerging from winter this Spring with a month's worth of tour dates. The band will be joining Pathology and The World We Knew throughout April and May in venues nationwide.
The Spring Slasher Tour kicks off April 6th in Richmond, VA with all three bands and ends on April 21st in Chicago. From April 22nd - April 29th, both Rose Funeral and The World We Knew embark on The Spring Fling portion of the tour. May 2nd-May 8th, fans can check out Rose Funeral on a short string of headlining dates across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kentucky.
Rose Funeral is touring in support of the band's latest release, "The Gates of Punishment" (reviewed here), which was released on September 27th, 2011. The band completed a video for Beyond The Entombed in late 2011 and can be seen here. More...
Earlier this year, San Diego’s brutal death metal/slam outfit Pathology completed a successful 3-week west coast headlining tour that also went down into Mexico for 4 shows.
“Our west coast tour was fun and successful,” states drummer Dave Astor. “We really got to play some smaller markets on the run and I was happy to see some old and new fans come out, especially to some of these more rural areas that we’ve never played. Hopefully we can do this as intensive west coast run once a year.”
Next on the band’s agenda is more touring in support of last fall’s "Awaken to the Suffering" album. Pathology took the initiative of doing headlining shows leading to a request for a slightly different type of tour this April with Rose Funeral and The World We Knew, getting into some alternative venues on the east coast and Midwest.
“I’m excited for this,” continues Dave. “We’ve been proud to tour with some of our influences but we also know our band appeals to a different and younger audience so we’ll be bringing some brutal, slamming death metal to these shows.” More...
German thrash icons Destruction announced that it will embark on a North American Tour in celebration of the band's 30th Year Anniversary beginning in May with shared direct support from California thrashers Warbringer and Rhode Island's Vital Remains (who will be alternating each night) plus San Diego death metal band Pathology.

Besides drumming for Obituary, Donald Tardy has other interests of a more altruistic nature. He and his wife Heather established the "Metal Meowlisha" as a way of aiding over 130 feral cats a day. Metal Meowlisha has the following mission statement, and you may go to it's website to learn more.
"Donald and Heather are committed to caring for feral cats in more than 20 spots or ‘colonies’ each day, 365 days a year. This also involves continually practicing Trap-Neuter-Return and using spay/neuter to control the population of free roaming cats in our area. The ASPCA endorses Trap-Neuter-Return as the ONLY Humane and Effective manner of managing free roaming cat populations, and so do we! In caring for so many cats on the streets, we find many abandoned cats, especially in the current economy and college area that we are working in. Often they are in need of health care, some need extensive treatment. The MM works with our vet and local clinics to the sick and injured cats we find, and networks with the wonderful rescues and shelters in our city to help find homes for friendly, adoptable cats and kittens. We strive to provide medical care as needed to sick or injured feral cats so they can be returned to their outdoor homes to live happily and comfortably. The MM embraces a no-kill ideology and strives to treat sick and injured cats without euthanizing cats based on financial considerations or testing positive for infectious diseases. We also believe that any cat or kitten whose life will be impacted by the results of a "positive" test deserves to be retested as these results are not always correct the first time, and sometimes with time a cat will clear the antibodies or virus. They don't euthanize MLB players for testing positive! We believe all cats deserve a second chance as much as it is possible, keeping the cats quality of life & prognosis of course in primary consideration."
Currently, Obituary is planning it's next big live gig at the Chas Metal Attack VI in the Circo Volador in Mexico City, supported by Pathology and Rigor Mortis. The date for the Festival is February 4th, 2012. Check out Obituary's Facebook page for more information. More...
