ATTN fellow organizers: this thread is off topic and will be deleted early next week. Thanks!
imagine this much metal for a ten-spot. That's right. $10 gets you this much
quality metal in one nice evening in Atlanta. Come on out and see some of
the best in local, regional, and national heavy metal.
Local stalwarts Eclipsed By Sanity and Brazen Angel support the show
featuring Nightmare Records artists' and Atlanta favorites Halcyon Way as
they debut two songs never performed on stage before.
Constructed from the fragments of metal bands from New York, New Jersey,
Chicago, and Florida, Veins Iced Over brings power and intensity to the
stage that make them a force to be reckoned with.
Destroy Destroy Destroy will make their Atlanta debut on May 1st; their
sound consisting of elements from the early thrash/hair/glam metal bands of
the 80's and 90's, to the current sounds of Scandinavian melodic Death
Metal and Viking Metal bands of today.
ProgPower USA 10 BRAVE WORDS & BLOODY KNUCKLES magazine review by Marc Gromen:
San Diego’s CAGE was the first to meet the challenge. In a word, relentless! Cage = No Ballads, just a flurry of lightning quick traditional metal that borders on speed/thrash. While some early arriving middle-aged couples sat in the amphitheatre like the wind blown Maxell commercials, the stamina required to sustain this barrage is amazing. From the opening ‘Planet Crusher’ (which also kicks off their latest CD, Science Of Annihilation) it was non-stop intensity: ‘I Am The King’ (floor length duster attired singer Sean Peck thrusting the mic into the crowd for each titular chorus), ‘Kill The Devil’ (the body building guitarist Dave Garcia and axe partner Anthony McGiness providing back-up vocals), the synchronized stage movements of ‘Scarlet Witch’, ‘Hell Destroyer’ during which the singer climbed the drum riser (a rarity at ProgPower), ‘Black River Falls’ a showcase of the different voices in Peck’s head/throat, ‘Speed Kills’ (perhaps the fastest song ever performed at PP), the hammer-on begun ‘Metal Devil’ and a closing, albeit abbreviated paean to one of the audience’s Holy Trinity, SAVATAGE (‘Dungeons Are Calling’). Blistering…sweat-soaked…wow!
