There was a lot of excitement in the Metal community when it became known that Max and Igor Cavalera were not only going to be recording and releasing a new album, but also doing some touring in support of it. The album was titled “Inflikted” and the band would come to be known as the Cavalera Conspiracy. It would feature not only Max and Igor, but also Marc Rizzo of Soulfly and Joe Duplantier of Gojira and be a straight ahead Metal record that delivered on all counts. The bands appearance in NYC would find them hosting not one, but two sold out nights at The Fillmore NY venue. We would hit the Saturday performance and make sure that we were in place to enjoy all five of the bands that would be featured on the bill this evening. Clearly this was going to be a long night, and the summer heat was only going to escalate with this much Metal to absorb. Incite would be the first group up for the night.

It was called “The Black Tyranny” Tour and it would find two powerhouses in today’s Metal world sharing a co-headlining bill. This blockbuster tour de force brought the ferocity of Arch Enemy and Machinehead together and both would be supported by Metal up and comers Sanctity and Hardcore stars Throwdown. The nomme de guerre of the tour would be a combination of each headlining bands newest album titles as Arch Enemy’s “Age Of Tyranny” was melded with Machine Head’s “The Blackening” to become one formidable phrase.

The Sounds Of The Underground Tour for 2005 rolled into the parking area of The Starland Ballroom today and it was truly a day to be reckoned with. This tour has been steamrolling venues recently and how can a Festival that brings you 18 of the hardest bands around do any less. Some listed shows had 22 groups but due to some scheduling conflicts we would have 18 at our day. Given the fact that this would prove to be one of the hotter days of the Summer I was quite happy with the 18. My overall plan for the day was to absorb as much of the bands as possible, with particular focus on some that I have either never seen, or had wanted to see once again. As the sun blazed above us The Red Chord began their set. I was still on the very long entry line in and as a result basically heard more than saw this Metal Blade Records band. I do feel that they were better live than on the CD that I own. Devil Driver came up almost immediately and were excellent. This band features Dez formerly of Coal Chamber and I most definitely want to see them perform again.
