Rob Zombie has been a busy guy these days, planning his upcoming 'Night of the Living Dreads' tour with Korn and designing and building his Halloween spectacular, Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare, which is currently taking place at the FEARplex in Pomona, Calif. The gory and graphic attraction, which also features lots of music, will culminate on Nov. 1 and 2, when Zombie himself takes over as the headlining act. Loudwire was there to experience the show on opening night and as we wrote, it’s dazzling and mind-bending experience.
Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is now open, and for fans of bloodcurdling horror, it is like a dream come true. Loudwire was on hand at the Fairplex (dubbed the “Fearplex” for this event) in Pomona, Calif. for the opening night of Zombie’s latest venture, which is bound to succeed on frightening levels.
At the recent Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif., Megadeth brought their thunder the day after slaying a San Bernardino crowd on a bill with Iron Maiden and Anthrax. Backstage at Aftershock, Loudwire had the pleasure of sitting down with Megadeth's main man Dave Mustaine for an intriguing conversation.
Epicenter, aka ‘Southern California’s Rock Festival,’ celebrates its fifth anniversary this year with a lineup that pays tribute to its Southland roots. Local alt-rock heroes The Offspring, Bad Religion and Pennywise will be performing alongside new homegrown bands like Pierce the Veil, Fidlar and Plague Vendor. The lineup on the main stage will also feature A Day To Remember, All Time Low and Falling in Reverse.
The first introductory strains of the “False Awakening Suite,” which kick off Dream Theater's new self-titled album (due Sept. 24) seems to actually transport the listener into a theater. Images come to mind of the lights going down in some wildly ornate medieval house of drama, the orchestra has signaled the overture, and it is time for the massive sweep of something liberating, powerful and profound to roll forth.
