Tour de Force



Last Thursday we reported on a rumor that Dethklok, Machine Head, All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder would be touring together this fall. And hey, today let us all rejoice: the rumor is true!

This seems like it’d be a good time to say how blown away I was by Dethklok’s live performance when I saw them play with Mastodon a couple of years ago. I, too, was a skeptic — how would this “fake” band’s shown be in the live setting? But not only was the visual presentation incredibly impressive and engaging (via giant video screens and a killer light show), but the band was beyond tight and fun to watch as well.

The tour announcement, of course, comes in the wake of the cancelation of Dethklok’s summer tour with Lamb of God and Gojira, and Lamb of God’s subsequent announcement that they’d be teaming up with In Flames, Hatebreed, Hellyeah and Sylosis for a fall tour. So I guess the silver lining (if there is one) of the whole Randy Blythe being trapped in a Czech prison for five weeks thing is that we now get two awesome tour with even more awesome bands than we would’ve before. Plus All That Remains and Hellyeah.
