Emilie Autumn recently wowed Los Angeles fans at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare and she took her stage theatrics back to Tinsel Town Monday night (Dec. 9) at the Troubadour. The world-class violinist's stage show has evolved into a full-on theatrical production, based around the adventures of a wayward Victorian girl and her cohorts as they deal with life as inmates in an asylum.
There’s no rest for the weary and that couldn’t be truer for the members of Halestorm. If they aren’t off winning Grammys or recording cover EPs, then they’re on the road. Lzzy Hale and the gang are meant to be headliners and they proved that with their stellar performance at New York City’s Terminal 5 over the holiday weekend.
Almost a decade after founding guitarists Eric and Brian Hoffman left the band, Deicide are back with 'In the Minds of Evil,' their fourth album in the new era. Mainstays Glen Benton and Steve Asheim are rounded out by guitarists Jack Owen, who has been in the band since 2004, as well as on-and-off six-stringer Kevin Quirion, who makes his recording debut with the band.
Experimental metalers Periphery kicked off 2013 by opening up for Deftones and then went on to be a massive part of this year’s Summer Slaughter tour. They rounded out this year as headliners of their 'This Is Personal' tour and ended the trek at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Stellar support included Born of Osiris, Dead Letter Circus and Twelve Foot Ninja.
Anyone who has seen In This Moment in concert recently knows that they have definitely earned the right to be a headlining act. On their Hellpop Tour, Maria Brink and her gang made their stop at Best Buy Theater in New York City with support from Motionless In White, Kyng and All Hail the Yeti.
The Bass Player Live! Concert & Awards Show honored musicians who too often get overlooked, though there was hardly any introduction needed for the night's top honoree -- Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler. Hartke helped line up some of metal's biggest names on Saturday night (Nov. 9) at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre to salute the man who helped paved the way for their own careers.
