hatebredd coverWhen I think of hardcore music blended with metal, I do not think of the metalcore genre. No, the first thing that comes to mind is Connecticut hardcore legends Hatebreed who took the genre and brought it right to the forefront. in the early to mid 2000’s.  That is why for today, I have decided that I was going to check out the band’s self titled fifth studio album as this week’s Album of the Week. The album was released on September 29, 2009 via E1 Music and it featured Jamey Jasta (Vocals), Frank Novinec (Rhythm Guitar), Wayne Lozinak (Lead Guitar) for the first time on a studio album, Chris Beattie (Bass), and Matt Byrne (Drums) while the album was produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris. When talking about the album Jamey Jasta had this to say, “This is our fifth studio album and it’s a monster! We’ve survived some pretty rough times and the music shows it. There was no reason to change the recipe that our fans know and love but we added a few brutal new ingredients and we’re more than amped on the results. Violence is a given!” The album peaked at number 37 on the Billboard Top 200 charts while it peaked at 4 on the US Independent Albums, 8 on the US Top Hard Rock Albums, and 16 on the US Top Rock Albums.

35ce1096578ffb3b6ad9a01e2dc51235.1000x1000x11. Become the Fuse– The track kicks off with a little bit of a punk feel to it while remaining true to their sound especially when the chorus drops in this track that is all about motivating you to be the spark in your life to do something instead of waiting for others to do it for you. 4.5/5

2. Not My Master– True to that Hatebreed sound through and through with the guitar feedback that kicks off the track before they drop the hammer. I think the track is all about fighting substance abuse and how you remind yourself that the addiction is not your master. 5/5

3. Between Hell and a Heartbeat– I love the beginning of this track because it has such a doom (in an apocalyptic way) like metal riff to it before the band absolutely shreds. I think the track is all about how you get to that moment in a relationship where you’ve lost all hope and you can’t take anymore. 4.5/5

4. In Ashes They Shall Reap– One of my favorite tracks of all time when it comes to Hatebreed. I just think the track is all about how no matter what you throw at him he will never give up because he was, “born to bleed, fighting to succeed. Built to endure what the world throws at me.” 5/5

5. Hands of a Dying Man– a bad ass track that in my opinion is all about a man who is not afraid of death because he has accepted his fate and is willing to walk that road. The track has a Slayer like guitar solo thrown in there which was cool. 5/5

6. Everyone Bleeds Now– an in your face track that just makes you want to punch something and I don’t know what the track is about, but it kicks ass. This was also a sick track to see live and see the pits for this one. 5/5

ee1171142818fc39e77b1aaa01d36f96.1000x1000x17. No Halos for the Heartless– a very metal track in the beginning with the gang vocals before it becomes the hardcore track we all knew it would be. It’s all about worthless pieces of crap are ruling the worlds instead of the people that deserve it. 4.5/5

8. Through the Thorns– I love this bass driven track that has that metal riff to it in this song that is all about persevering on no matter how difficult the road. Seriously, Chris Beattie’s playing is on point on this track. 4.5/5

9. Every Lasting Scar– an upbeat hardcore/punk anthem that is all about Jamey  reflecting back on the long hard journey the band has had to get where they are. 4.5/5

10. As Damaged as Me– There is something deep going on in this song that I am not going to try and guess what it is because I am not sure. It has one hell of a breakdown moment during the track. 4.5/5

11. Words Became Untruth– an in your face track that seems to be about suicide and how it can take over our every thought or at least when we get into a downward spiral. 4.5/5

12. Undiminished– an instrumental track on the album. 5/5

Hatebreed13. Merciless Tide– a awesome track that I think is saying that even though it seems like shitty people get away with stuff all the time, they too have a day of reckoning. 4.5/5

14. Pollution of the Soul– a thrash like classic from the band that technically ends some versions of the album depending on what you have. The track is about how it is so easy for the liars of the world to fill your head with lies that you have to be able to fight it. 4.5/5

15. Escape– On some versions you get this amazing cover of a Metallica classic from my favorite album Ride The Lightning. 5/5

My Final Thoughts– Hatebreed never disappoints with every album, but besides Perseverance, this is one of my favorite Hatebreed records ever. There are way too many amazing tracks on the album to list, but I have always loved In Ashes They Shall Reap, Hands of a Dying Man, Not My Master, and Everybody Bleeds Now. I am going to give the album 4.7 stars out of five for a final grade.

Love Me To DeathSuicide Silence is one of those bands that took a lot of crap over the sound and clean singing that was on an album that I personally loved in the self titled fifth album that came out in 2017. Now, we fast forward two years later and the band is ready to shut their haters the f**k up as they turn the volume and the intensity up in this week’s Metal Single Of The Week and the band’s brand new single Love Me To Death. The track is the fourth song on the band’s upcoming sixth album Become The Hunter and it goes right back to the band’s Deathcore roots which means it’s going to deliver some blunt force trauma to all the naysayers. The album comes out on February 14, 2020 via Nuclear Blast Records and the album was produced by the great Steve Evetts who has produced albums by Hatebreed, Sepultura, and more while the album was mixed by Josh Wilbur (Trivium/Gojira) and mastered by the one and only Ted Jensen (Pantera/Slipknot). Believe me as soon as you hit play on the player below, you will be a fan of the track so check it out and check out the artwork below and the track listing too.

82542c8381aeda3195ff3948d86419f4.938x938x1I have to be completely honest with everyone in saying that before 2002, hardcore/punk music was not on my radar at all. Sure, I had heard of bands like the Cro-Mags, Biohazard, Black Flag, The Dead Kennedy’s whether it be on t-shirts of kids at school or a friend or family member that was into that kind of music. Unfortunately, I wasn’t going out of my way to buy any of this music, but that would all change in the summer of 2002. In 2002, I attended Ozzfest 2002 ands when I was in the parking lot waiting to get in, I could hear a band that was just decimating the decibel levels that day and I rushed to get in because I had to know who they were. That band was New Haven, CT’s own Hatebreed and they were touring in support of their second album Perseverance which was their major label debut released earlier that year in March via Universal. The band which was made up of Jamey Jasta (Vocals), Lou “Boulder” Richards (R. Guitar), Sean Martin (L. Guitar), Chris “The Xmas Bitch” Beattie (Bass), and Matt Byrne (Drums) were firing off all cylinders that summer and with the help of their track I Will Be Heard on the xXx Soundtrack that propelled the track to number 50 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts.

e756c48d1a5753b606987e8dfe88bb03.532x532x11. Proven- The track starts off firing out of the gates with it’s in your face approach in the track where Jasta claims the band will not change and he will not let them fail to prove the naysayers wrong. 5/5

2. Perseverance– an insane track with some sick breakdowns that just pummel with the help of Kerry King of Slayer on the track. The track is all about moving forward and never stopping until you succeed. 5/5

3. You’re Never Alone– I always took this track as an anthem for the scene and their fans telling them that they never alone because they have each other. 4.5/5

4. I Will Be Heard– This is the track that started my obsession with Hatebreed with Jasta telling you that he is here and he’s not going anywhere because he will be heard. 5/5

5. A Call For Blood– This is a deep track lyrically that can be interpreted in a couple of ways. This could be a song about someone that did some unspeakable things to someone and Jasta is calling for revenge. 5/5

6. Below the Bottom– I feel this is a track about someone who has exhausted the kindness of his family and friends as he deals with whatever addiction he has. This is kind of like Jasta saying enough is enough. 4/5

7. We Still Fight-A great track lyrically about those wanna be radicals in this country that disrespect the very thing soldiers have fought and died for, but like Jasta says if there’s an anarchy your the first one gone. 4.5/5

8. Unloved– An great track lyrically about how no matter how much you try to mask the pain, it never really goes away and it creeps it’s way back. 4.5/5

afe9cd11dcbdb6166b8b2bafd19e36b4.939x939x19. Bloodsoaked Memories-a track about that person that just doesn’t give a crap about your feelings and is all about themselves no matter who they hurt. 4.5/5

10. Hollow Ground-This is an eye opening track lyrically that just asks you what is real in life? Do you really love those you say you love because remember they can be gone in a minute. Do you really own something or are you just a slave? 5/5

11. Final Prayer-a track that is all about how we are destroying our very home, the planet Earth so this is the final prayer. 4.5/5

12. Smash Your Enemies– The track is pretty bad ass and the lyrics are pretty self explanatory so smash your enemies and take no prisoners. 4.5/5

13. Healing to Suffer Again– It’s a track that is just pummeling in sound, but it’s lyrically about how we can be hard on ourselves no matter how much we try to move on. 4.5/5

14. Judgement Strikes (Unbreakable)-a track that talks about those people who are not brilliant enough to do things for themselves so they leach off of you. 4.5/5

15. Remain Nameless– This is another track that is all about proving your doubters wrong because that victory is sweeter. 4.5/5

16. Outro-This outro would eventually be turned into the track Tear It Down on the band’s next album so it’s like a preview. 4/5

My Final Thoughts– This is the album that helped put Hardcore music on the map if you ask me as far as a commercial stand point was concerned. It’s a punishing album from beginning to end and my favorite tracks 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10. This was also Lou Richards last album with the band and unfortunately they wouldn’t have a chance to reunite with him because Lou committed suicide in 2006. I am going to give the album 4.6 stars out of five for a final grade.

war of the covers war machineLast week, we had a battle between Hatebreed and Gojira as to who covered Metallica’s Ride The Lightning track Escape better. You voted, the results are in, and the winner of that battle is Hatebreed by two votes which means it was a closer match than the first one. This week we have an interesting battle for all of you as we feature two titans of their respective metal sub-genres covering one common track between them. In one corner, we have Floridian death metal act Six Feet Under who have been destroying everyone in their paths since 1993 when they signed with Metal Blade Records. In the other corner is their label mates who come from across the ocean from deep in the heart of Europe in Swedish melodic death metal (often credited as Viking Metal) band Amon Amarth. What could be the common thread between the two of them besides the fact that they are on the same label and almost the same genre? Well, if you are observant, then you would see that it is the fact that they both covered War Machine, a cool track from Kiss’s tenth studio album Creatures Of The Night. It’s not surprising that they covered a Kiss track as Kiss had influenced a lot of different metal bands, but who did the song better? Six Feet Under covered the track on their third album, 1999’s Maximum Violence while Amon Amarth had it as a bonus track to their eighth studio album Surtur Rising. Unfortunately, only one of them can win and you are going to decide who by voting. You have until the next War Of The Covers post to decide. So, vote wisely and carefully!

war of the covers escapeA couple of weeks ago, we had our very first War Of The Covers which pinned UK Metal band Malefice against French groove/death metal band Trepalium as we decided who covered Pantera’s I’m Broken better. Unfortunately for Malefice, everyone overwhelmingly thought that Trepalium’s version of the track was better. For this week’s War Of The Covers, we are exploring a cover from a band that is in the news right now for all the wrong reasons after the way they opened the year up. Apparently, Metallica is in the news right now because they are being accused of stealing a riff from an 80’s death metal band named Incubus on one of the tracks on their latest effort Hardwired… To Self Destruct. Whether that fact is true or not, there is no denying that Metallica is one of the greatest metal bands of all time (I said one of, not the). They have written some iconic material in albums like Kill Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, and …And Justice For All. As a fan of music and metal, there is no denying that fact and the fact that they have influenced countless metal bands over the years. That is why I chose them because some amazing bands have covered Metallica over the years and I think we have a good one here. In 2005, if you had the Japanese version of Gojira’s amazing album From Mars To Sirius, then you noticed that the band covered the Ride The Lightning track Escape. Fast forward to 2009, hardcore metal giants Hatebreed released an all covers album entitled For The Lions which featured them covering the Lightning gem Escape as well. Now it is up to you guys to decide who covered it better? You have until the next post to decide.

suicidesilenceyoucantstopcdFor this week’s album of the week, we are looking to a band that has been the center of a hot topic in metal and I am talking about deathcore artist Suicide Silence. The band which is made up of Hernan “Eddie” Hermida (Vocals), Mark Heylmun (Lead Guitar), Chris Garza (Rhythm Guitar), Dan Kenny (Bass), and Alex Lopez (Drums) have been the center of attention thanks to their new self titled album. In the past I interviewed guitarist Mark Heylmun and respected him and the band after that interview which is why I have decided that I would cover the band’s previous effort, 2014’s You Can’t Stop Me. The album was the band’s first effort with previous singer Mitch Lucker and their first with former All Shall Perish vocalist Hermida. The band’s fourth album was a success for the band as it peaked at number 16 on the Billboard Top 200 charts making it the band’s highest charted effort as it spent five weeks on the charts. According to a source, the album’s title came from a set of lyrics that were left behind by Mitch before he passed away.

SUICIDE-SILENCE---YOU-CANT-STOP-ME-2014-White-21. M.A.L.– A cool instrumental intro that leads us to the next track on the album. 4/5

2. Inherit The Crown– The song kicks off like a bullet from a gun and the track seems fitting with the opening lines “I’ll wear the mask if I have to,I will inherit the crown” which seems to be Hermida telling the crowd that he’ll inherit the spot that Lucker left behind to keep the band rolling. 5/5

3. Cease To Exist– The track starts with the razor fast shredding from Heylmun and Garza and the insane thrash like drumming from Lopez as Hermida sings about his distaste for pedophiles. The song features those typical metalcore breakdowns tuned down to death metal standards with a sick guitar solo. 4.5/5

4. Sacred Words– I absolutely love this track on the album because it makes you believe that it’s going to be more melodic than most tracks until it actually kicks in to overdrive with the hardcore like riffs. The song seems to be about someone who questions the existence of faith and how it has never helped him. 5/5

5. Control– a more death metal like track on the album with the blast beats and fasster than lightning playing that also features vocals from Cannibal Corpse singer George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. 5/5

6. Warrior– A call and response between the rhythm section and Heylmun set up the beginning of the track as they fiercely blast away in a track about a warrior’s journey. There’s a cool part in the track where all the music stops except for the bass and drums and it’s a kick ass section. 4.5/5

max1408706601-potlaccd-cover7. You Can’t Stop Me– The title track on the album which is also one of two songs to feature lyrics by Mitch Lucker. The track seems to be about stepping up the plate and not letting anyone deter you from being what you want to be. It’s a kick ass section that is a definite sing along with fans. 5/5

8. Monster Within– An in your face unrelenting track that is gets the blood boiling with every note and chord that also features vocals from The Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato. 5/5

9. We Have All Had Enough– The track starts with some nice clean guitars and some sound effects like a storm is brewing and it is in the form of some kick ass metal that explodes through your speakers. I think the track is about someone who is trying to fool the public even though it’s written all over his face and we have all had enough. 4.5/5

10. Ending Is the Beginning– This is the other track on the album that features lyrics by Lucker, but that is because this is a re-recording of the track from the band’s Suicide Silence EP. 4.5/5

11. Don’t Die– I feel like this track is a tribute to Mitch and all of his fans like in saying let’s not let his legacy die and let’s keep it moving forward. 4/5

12.  Ouroboros– I had to look up what the title meant and it’s this, “a circular symbol depicting a snake, or less commonly a dragon, swallowing its tail, as an emblem of wholeness or infinity.” The track more or less is them coming to grips with the fact that the world is f**ked and there is nothing we can do, but be one with ourselves. It’s another track that features clean guitars and is a lot slower in tempo, but don’t let their musical abilities fool you because they turn it up in the track as well. 5/5

My Final Thoughts– The bonus tracks on the album feature the track Blue Haze and a cover of an Hatebreed song in Last Breath. From a standpoint of traditional Suicide Silence records, I think this is a pretty kick ass record and a great debut for Hermida on vocals who had huge shoes to fill. You can see the band’s change of direction in the last track on the album so it’s almost foreshadowed. Anyways, I am giving the album 4.6 stars out of five for a final grade.

goreJust as we did last week when we covered the album of the year for the album of the week, we are continuing it by cover the Rock album of the year as voted by you the fans. At the Sixth Annual Monster Entertainment Awards, the Deftones took him the rock album of the year award for their eight studio album Gore. The album featured the usual suspects in Chino Moreno (Vocals/Guitar), Stephen Carpenter (Guitars), Abe Cunningham (Drums), Sergio Vega (Bass), and Frank Delgado (Samples/Keyboard) and it was produced by Matt Hyde (Hatebreed, Parkway Drive) as well as the Deftones. When released, the album charted at number two on the Billboard Top 200 charts making it the highest charted album from the band since 2003’s self titled album and it was also their highest amount of albums sold in the first week (69,000) since 2006’s Saturday Night Wrist (76,000). It’s also the first Deftones record to hit number one in Australia and New Zealand.

img_20170215_0006_new1. Prayers/Triangles– The very first track on the album that kicks things off in the right direction. The song starts off very atmospheric especially with the guitars and the band lays it down during the chorus. I feel like the track is talking about someone who wakes up one day, but realizes that he is trapped inside this hell. 5/5

2. Acid Hologram– The track picks up right where the last left off with it’s post punk laced rhythms. The track could be talking about how he is trying to be close to someone and they push him away, but that will soon change. 4.5/5

3.  Doomed User– This is more of a traditional sounding Deftones track with the big bass riff and the in your face groove laden guitar track and amazing vocals from Moreno. 4/5

4. Geometric Headdress– The experimental side of Deftones is alive in this intense math rock track that tests Cunningham’s abilities to which he shines. 4.5/5

5. Hearts/Wires– starts off very space rock like thanks to the samples Delgado provides in the beginning. The track starts off more mellow than previous tracks, but don’t worry t has it’s moments of heaviness. It seems to be about some one is distraught over not being able to connect with someone who has passed or gone away. 5/5

6. Pittura Infamante– I believe the title itself means infamous painting, but I’m not sure that is what they are talking about here in this track. It seems to be a song about worshiping someone and the lengths we go to do so. 4.5/5

img_20170215_0007_new7. Xenon– Another track that has a little bit of a classic Deftones feel to the guitar track while have that New Wave flavor to it. Like Xenon which lives undetected, he is talking about being that thing inside you that makes you do what you do. 5/5

8. (L)MIRL– A track that takes you deeper into that world that Deftones are painting with the experimental elements. The song is definitely dark in nature as far as the gloomy guitar riff in the beginning and progresses with a cool metal guitar riff later on. 4/5

9. Gore– A real hard charging metal riff starts off the track that reminds us of what the band had accomplished on the last two records. 4/5

10. Phantom Bride– a pretty cool track on the album that features Jerry Cantrell from Alice In Chains providing the guitar solo. 4.5/5

11. Rubicon– The last song on the album that is a genuine riff fest for Carpenter and company, but an amazing way to close out the album. 5/5

My Final Thoughts– You can definitely tell that the band was heavily influenced by Moreno’s side projects as they’ve all adopted that atmospheric sound. I think it pushes the band forward as far as what they are capable of producing even though Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan are considered masterpieces. I am giving the record 4.5 stars out of five for a final grade.

Pasted-image-at-2016_05_12-04_56-PMThere was some very big news that was announced yesterday (May 12) and I have it here for you guys. Since it was kind of hinted that there would be no more Mayhem Fest after last years debacle, the summers were kind of left with nothing leaving metal fan asking the question of what was going to take over? Earlier in the week, it was announced that Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) and Ozzy Osbourne had an announcement to make. I immediately thought that it was either going to be about Ozzfest or Knotfest, I never thought that it would actually be about both. Apparently, they are calling it Ozzfest Meets Knotfest and it’s happening on a weekend in September in San Bernardino, CA. Ozzfest happens on September 24 while Knotfest happens on September 25 at the  San Manuel Amphitheater with some real heavy hitters. Ozzfest features bands like Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Black Label Society, Disturbed, Hatebreed, Goatwhore, and many more. Knotfest features heavyweights like Slipknot and Slayer co-headlining while it also features Amon Amarth, Anthrax, Overkill, Sabaton, Death Angel, and many more. Tickets go on sale May 20TH and for more information on the fest, please go here. I’m going to insert a little bit of my opinion here and say that while it’s cool that this is happening, it doesn’t help anyone that doesn’t live in California. If a metal fan can’t afford to fly out to California to see this then he is left with nothing for the summer. I’m just saying that I hope either one of these becomes a travelling festival next year. Here are the full lineups below:

Ozzfest: Sept. 24

Black Sabbath
Black Label Society
Rival Sons
Children of Bodom
Dead Cross
Municipal Waste
The Shrine
Still Rebel

Knotfest: Sept. 25

Amon Amarth
Suicide Silence
Butcher Babies
Man With a Mission
Death Angel

MisfitsAdmatRevThe next piece of news that I have is something you should be really excited for especially if you are either a fan of horror punk or Glenn Danzig in general. For the first time since 1983, the original lineup of The Misfits is going to reunite for a couple of gigs. That is right, Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein on the same stage at Riot Fest Denver and Chicago. We all know that Doyle has on occasion go on stage with Glenn and so the real issue was between Jerry Only and Glenn. Jerry Only once said this in an interview, “What I feel is that, I’d rather be where I am and be happy and be a positive influence than to be the richest man in the world and miserable and be a scumbag to the kids that follow us. I’m not doing that. I told Doyle that. I told him, ‘Hey look, if Glenn wants to come be a team player and leave that s–t at home, we’re good.’ That’s the name of the game.” I would have loved to be in the room when those two met, but they obviously have broke some ground considering the band is back for a couple of gigs. Tickets for Riot Fest are available as we speak and you can get them by going here.

hatebreedEveryone’s favorite hardcore band who brought the genre to the forefront Hatebreed are back with a brand new album The Concrete Confessional (comes out May 17TH) and they have unleashed the first track off the album called A.D.. Frontman Jamey Jasta talked about the track saying, “A.D.’ was a way that I could voice my frustration about the loss of opportunities available to the average guy. With the government and big business drowning in corruption and greed, the average person is being squeezed, so achieving the American dream is becoming less and less real. We all need to pay closer attention to what our elected leaders are doing. Start locally, in your own community, make your representatives accountable.” While the song holds all the elements that fans love about Hatebreed’s music, I feel the band incorporates more of a punk/Thrash attitude which is pretty bad ass. It definitely adds more of a dynamic to the band and maybe a step into the future for them. The band heads out on tour soon with Devildriver, Devil You Know, and Act Of Defiance. Check out the tour dates here, check out the pre-order bundles for the new album here, and check out the track below:

Tony-Martin-Tony-Iommi1So many bands or people that have collaborated in the past have been reuniting left and right lately. So, why can’t estranged members of Black Sabbath do the same exact thing. You’re probably wondering what in the world is he talking about? Well, apparently at a memorial plaque unveiling for Cozy Powell in Cirencester, UK, Tony Iommi and Tony Martin ran into to each other and talked for the first time in 15 years or so. Tony Martin sang on five Black Sabbath albums before his exit from the group and the two hadn’t spoken in years, but a reunion could happen. Here is what Martin had to say on his Facebook page, “Well what a great day… I attended the unveiling of Cozy Powell’s memorial plaque in his home town of Cirencester, along with Brian May, Neil Murray, and Tony Iommi… And to my surprise was greeted by Tony Iommi VERY warmly. Its the first conversation of any length I have had with him in 15 years!!!! ….. and it turns out we may well be working together soon!!!” Of course, he’ll have to wait for the end of the current Sabbath lineup before he’ll ever work with Iommi again, but fans can hopefully look forward to that in the future. After all, Iommi worked with Glenn Hughes on an album and he worked with Ozzy on an whole entire record.

Izzy-StradlinI have seriously tried not to report on the Guns N Roses lineup thing until all details were revealed and certified authentic. While we know that Duff McKagan and Slash will be working with Axl Rose, there are rumors flying as to who the other members would be and this new one is one that I am seriously hoping for. Alan Niven, who managed GNR from 1986 until 1991 is saying that he believes that Izzy Stradlin could be rejoining the lineup. Niven claims, “Izzy will sit on the sidelines until he feels like he wants to get his toes in the water. He doesn’t like all the drama.” He goes on to say and boldly claim, “I think he’s written with them.” That is definitely quite the statement that can send the rumor mills flying high as fans wait and pray for a full reunion. We’ll just have to wait and see, but expect tons more for news as far as rumors are concerned.

dimebash2016poster_0The Ride For Dime Dimebash is one of those events that is worth attending especially if you were a fan of the metal legend Dimebag Darrell. Well, we have some news for the 2016 edition of the event as far as performers paying tribute to the late guitar legend. This year’s Ride For Dime Dimebash will take place at Lucky Strike Live venue in Hollywood, Calif on January 22ND. Promoters for the show are promising that members of Pantera, Slayer, Black Label Society, Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Hatebreed, Stone Sour, Type O Negative, Danzig, King’s X, DevilDriver, Prong, Kyng and Armored Saint will be there. Rita Haney commented saying, “I think the thing that embodies this event and entity is unity; bringing everyone together to celebrate the music played and loved by Darrell and to benefit the foundation of a very beloved man, Mr. Ronnie James Dio. Dimebag Darrell was notorious for giving us all so much, in some way, even to this day. So to be able to give back in his name is such an honor. With all of this amazing talent in one place it makes for a damn good celebration! C’mon out and getcha pull!” Tickets for the event can be found here.
