Voivod @ Oakland Metro Operahouse

@voivoddotnet @centurymedia @oaklandmetro @fuelandseed With so many bands (six!) on the bill the set was a snappy 60 minutes. I would love to see Voivod again (in a less-crowded venue) perform for longer. Here is what they played: Kluskap O’Kom...

Opeth, In Flames, and Red Fang (Communion of Sirens Tour)

@RedFang @OfficialOpeth @OpethJp @InFlames_SWE I just missed catching this tour. They played in Chicago a couple nights ago, and I will be in Chicago tonight. Oh well. Believe it or not, Red Fang is the band I’d like to see most. Although IR...

Hot Demon Fear @ Los Lobos (Guanajuato, Mexico)

Hot Demon Fear was better than my expectations. They played a few of their own songs, but mostly Hot Demon Fear covered tunes based on audience requests. I don’t remember them all now, but they included several Led Zeppelin songs, a couple from...

Björn Gelotte of In Flames

Mastodon (Gojira and Kvelertak) US tour begins 4/28/14

@GhostBcOfficial My random, desktop image of the day is from Ghost’s first-ever show in Denmark and just their 24th appearance anywhere. Since then they have played about 300 shows and counting.
