Godflesh by Maclyn Bean

Whether you know them or not (you should — they formed the same year as Nine Inch Nails), Godflesh are one of the most important names in industrial music, influencing not only their own niche, but the entirety of metal. Their reunion in 2010 was cause for great celebration, and while they have yet to release a new album (it’s coming!), they’ve been hitting roads the world over. Photographer Maclyn Bean was able to catch their show in Philadelphia, PA during their recent North American trek, and you can view the photos below.

Decibel-Magazine-Tour-2014-620x817

Decibel Magazine’s proprietary tour is still in its infant years, but so far it has shown promise as one of the premier must-see annual treks. It was always going to be tough to beat the inaugural tour featuring headliners Behemoth on their return to US soil, but bringing together death metal greats like Carcass, The Black Dahlia Murder, Gorguts, and Noisem is cause for celebration. Photographer Maclyn Bean attended the tour’s stop in Philadelphia at The Trocadero, and you can view the photos after the jump.

animals as leaders 2014 may june tour

Do you like music without any interference from all of that lyrical nonsense? Animals as Leaders‘ latest headlining tour caters specifically to the instrumental crowd, bringing in tow Jeff Loomis & Keith Merrow‘s Conquering Dystopia and CHON. The trek sees the trio of shred-heavy acts hitting the road across the US in over a month’s worth of secondary markets, so chances are, you’re within a reasonable driving distance! Get dates below.

agalloch 2014

As a band of fellows with full-time jobs outside of the band, Agalloch rarely tours outside of small regional treks and festival appearances. However, it would appear as if Agalloch are planning something big for the release of their upcoming album The Serpent & The Sphere, as their recently announced “first leg” of their US tour is pretty extensive as it is, hitting stops they haven’t hit in years to my knowledge. Check out the dates below.

If you’re one of the many that thought Meshuggah‘s upcoming anniversary tour was much too short, then, well… there’s not much I can do for you there.

nautkicker

The potentially one-and-only Cloudkicker tour is just about halfway through its course, and people are reporting back that the Intronaut-backed live act is totally on-point. This tour is obviously a must-see, but the reality is that the tour dates aren’t all that extensive, leaving many fans missing out. Fortunately, band leader Mr. Ben Sharp is well aware of this, and he’s doing everything he can to make sure the tour is well documented, including plans for a potential live album.

dillinger happiness is a smile

As a vinyl collector and a massive fan of The Dillinger Escape Plan, I was pretty bummed that the group’s new single ‘Happiness Is A Smile’ was going to be released exclusively on vinyl through the band’s merch table during their latest run of dates with Trash Talk, Retox, and SHINING. The tour was coming nowhere close to home, so I just assumed it wasn’t meant to be.

southern darkness fest

I don’t know if it’s the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon at work here, but I’m starting to notice more and more metal festivals popping up in the United States. There are regional “deathfests” all over the place, with Baltimore’s Maryland Deathfest being the most infamous. This week alone, Deathwish, Inc announced their first ever two-day festival featuring their artists and related acts, and now we’ve got another potential locale for travel in Southern Darkness Festival, which takes place August 23rd in Ybor City, Florida.

deathwishfest

So this is a bit of a pleasant surprise. Deathwish Inc., whom you may know as the record label setup by Tre McCarthy and Jacob Bannon (Converge) have announced plans to put together a couple of all-dayers in July, featuring a whole selection of bands from their roster. It’s every bit as crusty and heavy as it sounds.
