New Year’s Music Resolutions For 2013: The End…

Well my Metal legions we have finally reached the last chapter of our “New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013” and holy mackeral this was a doozy when compared to last year’s series. The last few resolution quotes that we have are below, but first I want to thank everyone who participated in the series and those media resources that reached out to their talent pool to get us some really awesome stuff. You all made a very fun project all the more exciting. Now let’s get to the final resolutions and onto our new year’s blogging and reporting.

1. Noah Martin (Arsis): This year, I firstly hope to finally refinish my ESP with transparent neon green. My practice regiment will include, but not be limited to, an additional two hours, devoted wholly to slide vibrato and hair windmills. Arsis will make “Unwelcome” a critically-acclaimed and successful album through proper touring and positive reception from the press. Happy New Year’s!

2. Chris Catero (Razer): My New Year’s Music Resolution is to become something more than a caveman on my home ProTools rig!

3. Fred LeClercq (Dragonforce): “New Year’s Music Resolution is workin on my different projects as well as writing songs for a new Dragonforce album. The only challenge is to know which riff suits what band. But still its fun. That. And also try to drink less while on tour thats another challenge, haha”

Immolation @ The Studio at Webster Hall (7/28/2010)

Logo - Immolation

Artist: Immolation
Venue: The Studio (New York, NY)
Opener: Arsis & Disma
Date: 7/28/2010
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

This was proving to be a weird if not interesting month of Metal and Hard Rock for me as a keeper of the scene on the internet page for I had not been able to take part in the crushing shows held by Iron Maiden, Rush and Faith No More even though all had visited our fair city. Outside of these I had been very busy supporting much of the true “what’s hot in Metal” side by taking part in the Soilwork, Fear Factory and Charred Walls Of The Damned shows and tonight would continue the process by being on point as New York’s own Immolation touched ground below the caverns of Webster Hall in the venue called The Studio. Out in Brooklyn it seemed as though Steven Adler, formerly of Guns ‘N Roses, would be doing a gig with his band but when you added the fact that Arsis would be supporting the Immolation guys, this was a no brainer for me. My friends and I started our night off early at a bar we love called Duke’s over on 19th Street and while a slightly further distance than we would have liked, there is no better place to start the fun for shows in this immediate area. We headed inside just in time to catch the openers Disma and here is how the night went down.

Death Angel @ B.B. King Blues Club (6/11/2008)

Artist: Death Angel
Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY)
Opener: God Forbid, Arsis, Martyd
Date: 6/11/2008
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

The interesting thing about tonight’s show outside of the healthy dose of Metal we were definately in store for was all of the changes that occured before it actually happened. The original plan was that God Forbid and Death Angel would be doing this co-headlining thing and direct support would come from both Light This City and Soilent Green. Yet as the date closed in on us it seemed as though Light This City would cancel for unknown reasons and Soilent Green had gone out on tour with Dethklok. In the place of these acts would be Arsis and that in the end worked out very well for me since I am enjoying what they do for the Metal masses. An unsigned opening act called Martryd would kick things off very early in the evening but we would not be present for the majority of their set.
