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)

10402961_721389241263144_7242146594380982803_nPlease 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.

1973880_731919550210113_5840909587382321700_oI 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.
