PiercingMetal Thoughts: Gosh, I really don’t know what else I can add about this one to convince you about possibly attending and that’s because it’s one of those things that pretty much speaks for itself in terms of Heavy Metal importance. Are you a Progressive Metal fan? Then you already know full well about the abilities of Symphony X. Are you a fan of Thrash Metal? Then you should be in awe about the prowess and intensity of Overkill. Now let’s combine these forces of Metal nature on one stage – BOOM! Are you convinced now? Good and oh yeah before I forget, this is all being started off by Sanctuary and their latest album has been cooking fans stereos for a few months already. This is going to be a good one my friends and I am super excited that it all wraps up in my Big Metal Apple of NYC at Terminal 5. It’s also cool to find Overkill signing over to Nuclear Blast Records which is the same label as Symphony X as this really opens them up to a lot of interesting pairings on the label side. I figured I should mention this just in case you hadn’t heard yet. The Fall cannot come fast enough for me and since it hasn’t really been brutal hot yet here this summer we might end up with a warmer fall over here. What do you readers think of this package? Have you seen either of these bands before? Let me know in the comments section.
