Earlier today the nominees for the 2021 Grammy Awards were announced and I always like to dissect that lengthy summary to spotlight what has been nominated for the music that we are more in tune with here on the PiercingMetal website. That means I am taking the Rock, Metal and Alternative out of the pile and putting it on the side for your edification. Here now are the Grammy nominations for these categories which I culled from their resources directly.
High On Fire will continue to destroy Brooklyn as expected on the second night of their visit to this event space. Joining them once more are Power Trip, Devil Master and Creeping Death. Come out early, stay out late.
Hold onto your hats Chicago because The Original Misfits are coming back to visit you and will likely leave a whole lot of chaos in their wake. Sadly, I didn’t see any sort of press copy that lines out and extols the colorful history of the group and only received the poster below in my email. Since this is a one night only experience, I am thinking that it speaks volumes just the same. Do you agree?
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having recently caught this show at Newark’s Prudential Center, I’ve gotta say that you are going to want to get yourself out to this if you live in the region and can do so. Hearing these songs done by their original creators once again teamed up was fantastic for me, and of course my show also featured guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein with compliments from Acey Slade (guitar) and Dave Lombardo (drums). I’m not sure why Doyle isn’t mentioned on this poster but perhaps he is being held back as a big surprise reveal. I would hate that fans of the classic lineup would miss out on him if he had other touring commitments at the time of this show but let’s see what happens. The openers for this performance are also strong with the legendary Punk group Fear and Venom Inc. and Power Trip. It’s the kind of show that you are going to want to arrive for nice and early to enjoy all of the bands. Oh and before I go, let me point out that considering how the last few shows were, this one is very likely also going to be a no-phone show which means you must secure your mobile device in a sealed pouch or leave it locked in your car hidden from prying eyes. That’s all I have on this one, what do you think about the news? Are you excited? Or could you care less? Chime in down below.
The summer might be blazing us into air-conditioned spaces but that doesn’t prevent bands like The Black Dahlia Murder from announcing a tour that will happen in some states during the Fall and cooler months. Let’s check it out.
