Finally! We know all the tour dates for the 2013 Summer Slaughter tour, headlined by The Dillinger Escape Plan.
The video was created by guitarist Igor Omodei and is the second part in the video series from Februus.
There was a controversy brewing with the voting for the opening slot band of Summer Slaughter. Ultimately, that distinction went to Rings Of Saturn, who won by less than 1% of the vote. Apparently, the voting was left open past the deadline and during that time, Thy Art Is Murder squeezed ahead. To make amends, [...]
During one of many late night internet spirals, I came across this gem of a video featuring Animals As Leaders main man, Tosin Abasi, talking shop. I'm not a guitar player so I certainly didn't expect to get much from a video meant to plug the Atlanta Institute of Music's guitar course, but it turned [...]
Well, some of the rumors were true. In what was basically the worst kept secret ever, The Dillinger Escape Plan have been announced as the headliners for this year's Summer Slaughter tour. BUT WHO ELSE?!
If you ever wondered what happened to those twins from The Shining, they grew up to play harp. Not really, but meet Camille and Kennerly who cover the Iron Maiden classic "Fear Of The Dark." This is not the first time Iron Maiden was covered on harp. Also check out Animals As Leaders covered on harp.
I'm still a bit shell-shocked after seeing Meshuggah live this past Friday. It was an entrancing experience, and if they are coming to your town, I highly recommend going to see them. We posted a photo gallery from the Friday show, but I was browsing on HeavyBlogIsHeavy's gallery from Philly, the night before and photographer Maclyn [...]
The big question of the night was will Jens return to the stage and the answer was yes. Jens absolutely melted faces with Meshuggah, who put on an entrancing live show. Animals As Leaders and Intronaut also completely delivered and this package, from top to bottom is fantastic. Go see it live (dates here) and [...]
It's Monday, I'm hung over from an intense weekend and can't quite stomach a full on metal blast at the moment. Maybe once I have my coffee I'll be fully awake and ready for breakdowns, but for now, I need something soothing. Thankfully, Animals As Leaders guitarist Tosin Abasi posted this incredibly soothing video of [...]
It's gotta suck to be Jens Kidman right now. Meshuggah flew over to kick off their tour on Monday, and Jens was battling the flu (as noted by my terribly Photoshopped photo). Jens made it through Monday's set, but his condition got so bad, that he had to sit out the band's second stop in [...]
Tosin mothafuckin' Abasi is one of the greatest shredders in modern metal. His band, Animals As Leaders constantly pushes boundaries. He is an inspiration to guitar players ever, and he's only getting better. While in the studio recording the next Animals record, tentatively due this summer, Tosin has been fiddling with some new techniques. In [...]

The official music video for "Upload Complete" by Maine progressive metal group Last Chance To Reason. Taken from their album "Level 2," out now on Prosthetic Records. Catch the band on tour with Animals As Leaders this summer!
If you happened to just be listening to SiriusXM Liquid Metal, then you heard DJ Jose Mangin premiere the new Meshuggah track "Pitch Black." Of course it rules, it's Meshuggah.
