Sad news for fans of DECAPITATED, GRAND MAGUS and WINTERFYLLETH as they’ve been forced to drop out of tonight’s BEHEMOTH show at The Academy. Because of high winds and general horribleness, ferries have been cancelled and the bands are unable to travel over.
It’s not all bad though, thanks to some huge efforts on DME’s part, BEHEMOTH will be able to play this evening. The black metal titans cannot be stooped by mere Godly weather and will live on to reign unholy hell upon our mortal souls. In other words, they’re going to play a f**king blinder tonight.
Filling in for support tonight will be Malthusian and Aeternum Vale. You can view the fill statement from DME below about tonight’s shows. See ye all there!
Statement from DME (12/12/2014)
Please note that due to the horrific weather conditions in the UK and the subsequent cancellation of all ferries, the support bands will be unable to make tonight’s BEHEMOTH! show. However, due to monumental efforts from all involved throughout the evening and night, Behemoth will still play Dublin tonight. Support will now come from Malthusian and Aeternum Vale.
We realise this change will cause some disappointment but hope that you will understand that these are exceptional circumstances and appreciate the massive efforts made to ensure the headline band plays and the fact that that all concerned have gone beyond the call of duty both in terms of effort and finances to make Behemoth’s long awaited return to Ireland still happen.
Doors will still open at 6pm with Aeternum Vale onstage at 7.15pm, Malthusian at 8pm and Behemoth at approx. 9.15pm.
Dublin’s beloved death metal legends, WATPATHHHHHHH!!!!….. have confirmed they will be hitting the studio in January to record a band new EP. The band had originally announced plans for a full length album but due to personal commitments in the band, this has to be put on hold. Instead the band has selected five songs that were due for album and release them separately.
According to the latest update, the Warparty will be heading to Foel Studios in the UK to record the EP in January. The studio is used to metal with Napalm Death, Cerebral Bore, Dyscarnate and Primordial among the names of previous artists to record there.
Before that, Warpath will headline the Winter Assault on December 27th @ Fibber MaGee’s. It’s officially on!
Ireland hasn’t got a history of paying for the proivaleg of watching Saxons do their thing, but in this case you have Tickets There’s official seal of approval to go forth and even get a t-short. In one weelk the legendary English metal warriors SAXON will be in town performing for their legion at The Academy or current home of all things majorly metal.
The legends are coming to Dublin as part of their WARRIORS OF THE ROAD – 35TH ANNIVERSARY WORLD TOUR which will see them play 38 dates in Europe alone. Tickets are still on sale (but may not be for much longer) priced €26 inclusive of booking fee. Enjoy!
I read this last night and my hands have just now stopped shaking enough for me to post it. DME have confirmed that Nuclear Assault are coming to Dublin in 2015 and (get ready thrash fans) they’re going to be supported by Gama Bomb, Psykosis and Animator – Seriously!
All four of these bands will be playing together on one incredible night at the Voodoo Lounge on July 19th as part of Nuclear Assault’s Final Assault on Europe tour. No ticket details have been released yet but who the hell cares how much it costs? It’s happening and there’s no two ways about it. Not only Animator and Psykosis, not only Gama Bomb – but freakin’ Nuclear Assault as well! What are you even supposed to do with that?
Anyways, expect a messy Tickets There, a lot of beers, denim battle vests and savagery. If time allows, there may even be some tunes.
