Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 Day 3

Pallbearer may have started around 1 pm, but kept its audience in mourning. The group moved with the deliberation and anguish of its namesake. Guitarists Brett Campbell and Devin Holt dropped emotional bombs with weight comparable to receiving bereaving news. Campbell used an effect to make his voice appear distant like a ghost whispering in the ear of its lost lover. This was the third time in the last year I caught these Arkansas melancholic musicians, which is special since they only have one album of material to display: Profound Lore released their debut full-length recording, “Sorrow and Extinction,” in February.

Metallica To Host Its Own Festival In June

Following several cryptic announcements on its Facebook page, Metallica went on live stream today to say that the band will be hosting its very own music fest this year in New Jersey. "Orion Fest," the name of the new music festival, will be hosted in Atlantic City on June 23rd and 24th.

The event will feature 22 artists, comedy and lifestyle elements. More than just music, the festival will also showcase the band's individual interests - and allow fans to interact directly with each of the band members. Orion Fest will be held at the decomissioned airstrip Bader Field and was chosen because of the equidistant nature of it from L.A. and Europe, and the proximity to Atlantic City lodging. Metallica plans to headline both nights, confirming the following acts for the festival already:

Arctic Monkeys
Avenged Sevenfold
Modest Mouse
The Gaslight Anthem
Cage the Elephant
Fucked Up
Best Coast
Hot Snakes
Titus Andronicus
Gary Clark Jr.
Lucero
Roky Erickson
The Black Angels
The Sword
A Place to Bury Strangers
Liturgy

Metallica will be playing the "Black" album in full one night and "Ride The Lightning" in full the next night. Visit the Orion Music site for more information.

Liturgy Song Available For Streaming

Brooklyn based act Liturgy is currently streaming the track "High Gold" through Decibel Magazine's Deciblog. The track, which appears on the "Aesthethica" album, can be heard at this location. Decibel Magazine also commented on the song:

"Brooklynites Liturgy have taken black metal’s primal scream literally and applied it to an experimental framework. Actually, from the sounds of Aesthethica lead-off track 'High Gold,' it’s the other way ’round.

"Apart from the opening and ending sonic bookends, 'High Gold' is a furious, repetitious, and dissonant salvo carved out the same mindset that has carried fellow New Yorkers Krallice to acclaimed heights. Ultimately, Liturgy’s 'High Gold' rules."

Liturgy's Bernard Gann Joins Flaming Tusk

New York City indie metal band Flaming Tusk has announced that founding guitarist Don Blood has left the band and been replaced by Bernard Gann of fellow NYC metal scene stalwarts Liturgy. Gann remains a member of Liturgy and will divide his time between the two groups.

Liturgy kicked off a European tour on September 4th in Denmark, and Flaming Tusk will resume writing new material and performing to support their current LP, "Old, Blackened Century," shortly after Gann's return from that tour.

Flaming Tusk was founded in 2008 by drummer Dumnorix Xristophage and guitarist Don Blood who were immediately joined by guitarist Zosimus, bassist Schneidaar and vocalist Stolas Trephinator. This lineup recorded a self-produced EP, "Abigail," and a full length album, "Old, Blackened Century," both on the independent High Water Media label. Blood's departure and Gann's arrival marks the first personnel change for the band.
