Munich, Backstage Werk, Dec. 16th, 2016 This show closed my concert year 2016 and I have to say, it ended with a blast. A few days before, the show was sold out and the place was really packed, from the beginning. The crowd was obviously into all the bands, although all three opening bands had some sound problems in the beginning. Nevertheless the audience seemingly loved their performances, considering all the crowd-surfers, mosh-pits and circle-pits that happened during their sets. Wage War Stray From the Path Northlane The Amity Affliction were loudly welcomed by the crowd. The audience sang along to every song, knew all the lyrics by heart. Almost constantly the security guys had to catch crowd-surfers and see to it, that they got out of the pit quickly, so no one gets hurt. The songs they played were mainly taken from their last two records ‘This Could Be Heartbreak’ and ‘Let The Ocean Take Me’. Wise choice probably, because those records really let the band grow over the last years. Set-list: I [Read More]
Munich, Zenith, December 10th, 2016 This tour was announced about five months ago and it was a highly anticipated one. After the release of their latest record ‘The Last Hero’ on October 7th, Alter Bridge started out on an extensive tour through Europe and UK early November. With them on the road were Living Colour, Volbeat, Gojira and Like A Storm. The only band that stayed throughout the whole tour were Like A Storm. They were also the first band to play that night in Munich. The band has been out on tour through Germany earlier this year with Escape The Fate, where they played in a smaller clubs. Now with Alter Bridge they were able to play in front of big audiences, which in this case were about 5000 people. Already a popular rock act in the US and Canada, they have also gained many fans by now in Europe. Their latest record ‘Awaken The Fire’ sealed their breakthrough worldwide. Songs like ‘Love The Way You Hate Me’ or ‘Become The Enemy’ are [Read More]

The tour featured Born of Osiris, I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon A Burning Body & Bad Omens. We had the chance to catch them perform at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco on December 4th. It was incredible to see Danny Worsnop return to the stage and he took us on a trip down memory lane, sharing stories about the songs from their albums. The tour celebrates 10 Years that Asking Alexandria has been with Sumerian Records and we look forward to many more.

Bad Omens have been slaying it out on Sumerian Records “10 Years In The Black Tour”. This hard working band have been garnering high praise and attention for their high energy sets out on the tour. They may be the first the band to hit the stage, but over the course of the tour, the opening crowds have grown and grown. Word had spread about this band and how you should arrive early and not miss them! We caught them Sunday night at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. They killed it as the crowd was instantly energized and fueled. Their music is not straight forward metal, as it brings in influences of rock and alternative, inviting everyone to join in and feel the music take you over. Check out photos of their set by our Rockin Ryan: Make sure you have their self-titled debut album which was released in August. It is filled with great tracks full of raw energy and passion.
