The metal brigade from Sweden, Sabaton, once again opened up the show for the metal legends.  Sabaton has been touring with Priest across the United States on the past few tours. The band is working hard to break through on American soil and based on the number of Sabaton shirts and people singing along to every song, that hard work has paid off ..read more

Some things are made to last. Lovingly labored over by skilled and dedicated artisans, constructed from the sturdiest materials via techniques passed down through the generations, designed to function for lifetimes. In an ever-increasingly inauthentic and disposable world, it’s a sad truth that these monuments get rarer by the day. Fortunately some still stand and shine brightly, and people come from miles around to bask in the familiar, perpetual glow, the warmth of a known and trusted tradition. This was doubly the case on March 1, as a crowd of over 1,400 filled the seats of Ashland, Kentu ..read more

1 / 2 Few forms of music encapsulate a thrill-seeking and danger-loving mentality as the genre of heavy metal. While modern pop music may rely on repetitive electronic “hooks” and little in the way of actual content, heavy metal typically features intense chugging rhythm guitar that sets the basis for screaming lead guitar solos and deep lyrics.   Heavy metal fans encompass a broad spectrum of the population. They cannot be categorized based on their jobs or social status. Students, professionals, and blue-collar workers can all heed the call of this powerful form ..read more

It was just a matter time before I would make the drive, about seventy miles from Minneapolis, to one of newest outdoor venues to take in a show. The Ledge Amphitheater in Waite Park, Minnesota opened in 2021 and is nestled between two quarries which was a perfect environment to host one of the heaviest tours pounding North America. The Ledge was sold out for The Mega-Monsters Tour 2023 featuring Gojira and Mastodon as co-headliners with Lorna Shore opening. I had only heard the name Lorna Shore but had never heard the music. Experience told me that if ..read more

Opening the night was Living Colour. Like Extreme, they broke into the scene in the 80’s and offered much more than the template of music that was being mass produced by record labels at the time. It was a perfect pairing and people packed the venue to ..read more
