I arrived home from the sold out Alter Bridge show to find this cool bit of news in my PiercingMetal inbox. Now while I don’t like to generally copy the press releases we get here at the Metal Command HQ, this particular one offers all the information that readers need without too much added commentary from yours truly. Read on.
Last night at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, SLAYER surprised the capacity crowd with an unannounced performance, kicking off the show with a three-song set that included the global premiere of “Implode,” the band’s first new studio recording in five years. Recorded earlier this month at Henson Studios in Los Angeles and produced by Terry Date with co-producer Greg Fidelman, “Implode” is now available as a free download as a “thank you” to the band’s fans for their continued support. As SLAYER guitarist Kerry King put it, “You’ve done for us, now we want to do for you.” Registered members of SLAYER’s fan club were the first to receive an e-mail to hear the song before it was made public. “Implode” can now be downloaded by all fans at www.SLAYER.net.

A few short hours ago, Death Angel was finishing up a throttling set that was the close of a several week tour with Children Of Bodom and as this “Halo Of Blood” adventure was coming to its end for the mighty Thrashers, singer Mark Osegueda announced that Death Angel would be performing a “Not So Secret” gig at Blackthorn 51 in Queens. As soon as I arrived home I tossed this together for you in hopes that many numbers of our stalwart Metal supporters can get themselves into this sure to be exciting event. Trust me if you can get a ticket and be a part of this that you will not forget it. Death Angel really put on a show stopping show over these last two nights and you can learn something from their delivery if you are a musician as well.
I was excited to hear that this kind of thing was happening because its just so “Metal” in the aspect of thinking. “Hey we’re here and we have a night open so let’s do something special for our area fans”. It’s really something you don’t see happening all that much these days. Of course unless I am just not being clued into them 🙂 Learn more about how to attend this once in a lifetime kind of gig on Blackthorn 51’s Facebook Page HERE
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend so I hope to hear some cool stories from it if you go. Have a blast. After this you can keep up with future Death Angel happenings via their official website and then by purchasing some of the music which I have linked for you below.
