When GWAR come to town, metal fans trade their black t-shirts for white ones in hopes to be drenched in the bloodbath that is a GWAR show. The Scum Dogs themselves took New York City by storm over the weekend at Irving Plaza. Battlecross and Iron Reagan served as stellar support to kick off the night of pure mayhem.
Battlecross have knocked off yet another legendary thrash act. In their third consecutive Death Match, the American metallers were able to defeat Sepultura by a very respectable margin. Battlecross only need one more win to enter the Death Match Hall of Fame, so since the current Sepultura lineup wasn't able to claim victory, we're gonna inject some Cavalera into this match.
Battlecross have already carved themselves an impressive trail since debuting in our Death Match arena two weeks ago. After dispatching of Skeletonwitch with 'Force Fed Lies,' Battlecross claimed an even more impressive win in their latest battle against Testament. To keep the competition constant, we've got yet another massive challenge for the Michigan thrash / death metal band.
With their fourth consecutive win in our series of Death Matches, Incantation were able to defeat Suffocation to gain entry into the Death Match Hall of Fame. Congrats to the brutal band as their track 'Invoked Infinity' has been declared immortal! Although we won't be hearing from Incantation in this Death Match, we've got two new acts ready for battle.
Thrash band Battlecross are one of the most hardworking, tour-happy bands out there today. Fresh off Mayhem Festival and GWAR B-Q the band is touring in support of their latest disc ‘War of Will’ with Hatebreed, Shadows Fall and the Acacia Strain. In mid-October they will be on the road with Death Angel, 3 Inches of Blood and Revocation.
Connecticut got rocked this past weekend as one of the summer’s biggest metal tours made a stop in Hartford. Fans kicked up some serious dirt while moshing outside in the lot of the Comcast Theater and rocking to the numerous band that graced the Jagermeister Stage.
