Where Angels Suffer UK Tour 2012 News

Where Angels Suffer is a Supergroup that features 2 ex-members of W.A.S.P. –

Chris Holmes : Guitar

An original member of W.A.S.P Holmes has etched out a Stellar Career which can be traced back to the early days of metal that infiltrated L.A. and the Sunset Strip. A California native himself Holmes is also well known for his role in The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years and other projects both in film and music playing with the A list of metal. As featured on albums such as the legendary self-titled debut W.A.S.P., The Last Command, Inside The Electric Circus, Live In The Raw, Double Live Assassins, The Sting, Kill F*ck Die & The Headless Children

Stet Howland: Drums

In his later role in W.A.S.P, Stet became a key component as drummer. In addition to W.A.S.P the ever active Howland’s resume includes Temple of Brutality, RUN 21, Killing Machine, Belladonna, Blackfoot and Lita Ford to name, just a few. Howland resides in Florida with his own recording studio to keep him busy on a variety of projects including a reality show which he is in the process of launching.

Then there’s:

Rich Lewis, a longtime friend, was a natural choice for front man as he is a key component in the chemistry of the band. He has played alongside many greats artists including Ravencraft with Jeff Young (Megadeth). Lewis’s natural talent, broad range and unique voice which encompass the Metal sound are what cemented his spot as front man. His vocals only need to be heard to be believed. His influences can be heard in his vocals as he effortlessly can adapt to a variety of styles. He has been compared to greats like Ronnie James Dio, Bruce Dickinson and Lawless, but you really can’t compare Lewis to anyone because he has made his own path in the industry of Metal.

Steve Unger who played with Metal Church is a talented Bassist in his own right and his contribution to the Where Angels Suffer project completes the dynamic which makes these dynamic band mates such a huge success. Unger who played for Metal Church, was a big part of the Seattle band and his contributed a lot to their long success over the years. Work on Where Angels Suffer links Unger to former band.The new album he believes will be one of the best culminations of talent the metal scene has seen in a long time.

Where Angels Suffer is a project that is long over due. This all-star band of Metal Royalty has come together to create a new album, encompassing the essence of great Metal Rock bands. The project came naturally, as previous members of W.A.S.P. the artists share a unique style and talent that will be showcased on this exciting album. The band, comprised of Chris Holmes, Stet Howland, Steve Unger and Rich Lewis, will embrace their metal history while simultaneously astounding their fans with ground breaking original songs that could have only by created by the exceptional chemistry and passion these professional musicians discovered when they came together in their new creative endeavor Where Angels Suffer.

Cea mai indragita formatie de black metal melodic din Germania, Agathodaimon, va sustine pentru prima data un concert in Bucuresti.

Iubitorii metal-ului nu trebuie sa lipseasca de la acest eveniment care, pe parcursul a aproximativ 4 ore, ne va incanta cu muzica de calitate.

Pretul biletului este de 50 de lei si poate fi achizitionat de la Axa Valaha, Bestial Records si Let’s Rock.


Vineri, 24.02.2012, incepand cu ora 20 in club Fabrica vor concerta trupele mentionate in titlu. Daca esti pasionat de zona black/death, nu trebuie sa lipsesti de la eveniment!

Primele 50 de bilete vor costa 15 lei, urmatoarele urmand sa coste 20 lei. Biletele se pot achizitiona direct in seara concertelor, la intrarea in club. Membrii Romanian Thrash Metal Club beneficiaza de reducere de 50% din pretul biletului.

THE STONE este una dintre cele mai atractive titulaturi ale scenei underground black metal din Serbia, cu o activitate de peste cincisprezece ani, timp in care au lansat cinci albume, mai multe EPuri si compilatii, respctiv un DVD intitulat sugestiv “Live Curse from the East”.

Trupa a debutat sub numele Stone to Flesh, sub care au lansat caseta demo de debut “Serbian Woods”, indelung aclamata de presa si fanii black metal si care a fost lansata ulterior atat sub forma unor materiale pe vinil, cat si ca parte a mai multor compilatii care prezinta activitatea trupei de la inceputuri si pana in prezent. Initial semnatari ai unui contract cu celebrul label german Solstitium Records, ulterior trecand in tabara Folter Records din Berlin si fiind reprezentati in Statele Unite de labelul profilat pe lansarea de produse pe vinil, Diabolist Services Cult din Washington, The Stone este una dintre cele mai active trupe balcanice in materie de concerte, ei sustinand pana in prezent sute de concerte peste tot in Europa, alaturi de trupe importante ca Negura Bunget, Inquisition sau Corpus Christi, de asemenea fiind prezenti de-a lungul timpului in cadrul mai multor festivaluri renumite din vestul Europei.

The Stone au concertat pentru prima data in Romania in anul 2003, la Timisoara, alaturi de norvegienii de la Ancient. De asemenea, cei patru membri ai trupei activeaza in paralel in cealalta trupa legendara a scenei din Serbia, May Result, cu care au concertat acum zece ani in cadrul Deva Rock Camp 2001, ulterior lansand in Romania, prin intermediul Bestial Records unul dintre vechile lor albume. Stilul trupei The Stone, raw black metal, crud si rapid, impletind anti-crestinismul declarat al trupei cu mituri slave din perioada pre-crestina, alaturi de imaginea diabolica a sarbilor, le-a adus comparatia frecventa cu Immortal. The Stone vor putea fi urmariti la lucru, in cadrul unor recitaluri de aproximativ 60 de minute, ca headliner al celor trei concerte de la sfarsitul lunii februarie 2012. www.thestonehorde.com / www.myspace.com/thestonehorde

INFEST din Belgrad activeaza de asemenea de peste zece ani pe scena underground locala din Serbia, timp in care au lansat doua materiale demo, trei albume de studio si un EP. Ultimul album “Everlasting Genocide”, produs in Hellsound Studio din Cehia, sub bagheta lui Honza Kapak de la Avenger si avandu-l ca invitat pe Thebon de la Keep of Kalessin, este o dovada certa a faptului ca Infest este una dintre cele mai atractive trupe extreme din Serbia, albumul fiind un produs credibil, amplu si puternic, destinat atat consumatorilor de thrash metal clasic, cat si celor din zona death metal, o combinatie infernala de death metal sangeros si thrash metal old school in viteza, cu un grunting gutural si feroce, totul impins spre limita brutalitatii extreme, cu texte intunecate si violente.

Desi au concertat sporadic peste tot in Europa in cadrul mai multor turnee si festivaluri de profil, Infest n-a ajuns niciodata pana acum pe scenele din Romania, astfel ca cele trei concerte din luna februarie 2012, alaturi de conationalii The Stone, constituie o premiera care cu siguranta va produce valuri de entuziasm printre fanii genului. www.myspace.com/infestserbia

In deschiderea concertului vor evolua APA SIMBETII (black / death metal) si SPINECRUSHER (old school death thrash metal), ambele din Bucuresti.

Voices Of Silence

Trupa a fost fondata in 1994 iar primul album avea sa iasa pe piata in 2002, cu titlul Thunderground, sub egida Promusic Prod., fiind urmat de o campanie destul de intensa de concerte.
In anul 2008 a fost lansat albumul „The Human Saga”, un album autoprodus, iar lansarea sa facut online pe site-ul oficial al trupei.
In anul 2009, cu ocazia aniversarii a 15 ani de activitate, VOS a lansat albumul „The Human Saga” si pe suport CD, o editie limitata pentru fanii si prietenii trupei.
VOS declara pe site-ul oficial:

Per total in acesti ani am compus multe piese, si in ele am altoit tot ceea ce suntem noi: uneori critici, alteori sensibili, dar intru totul pozitivi, dornici de mai bine si de mai frumos, in aceasta lume de gri vulgar. Aceste piese sunt adevarata noastra biografie. In ceea ce priveste prezentul, momentan lucram destul de intens, incercam sa ne improspatam cat mai mult repertoriul, si speram ca publicul, de dragul caruia existam ca si formatie, nu ne-a uitat in lunile in care nu ne-am urcat pe scena.


Trupa cu experienta in underground-ul metalic romanesc abordeaza un death metal ce urmeaza linia Gorefest sau Benediction, dar riffurile grele ale death-ului au influente si din alte arii metalice, thrash sau black.
Vepres va transmit urmatorul mesaj:

Ritmurile va vor pune sangele in miscare si va vor face sa va dezlantuiti, intr-un concert la care suntem onorati sa participam alaturi de Voices of Silence, cu care am mai impartit scena in Bucuresti in 2009.”

Conflict Mental

Plictisiti, agasati, satui de extreme puerile, de forme fara fond, de urlete fara cuvinte, de speculatii agresive si de riff-uri fara autori, dar motivati de mediocritate, redundanta si basme cu pretentii de adevar, Dan (percutie), Luchian (chitara solo), Dorin (voce) si mai apoi Liviu (chitara ritmica) si Dragos (chitara bass) isi permit de mai bine de 2 ani luxul bagatelei, ce-o ofera cu gura pana la urechi regilor dezgoliti ai acestei lumi subrede si imediate, pe ritmuri de thrash si hardcore.

La fiecare concert, aceasta trupa se adreseaza celor 2-3 oameni din public pentru care extremele sunt primitive si naive, pentru care albul si negrul nu mai este suficient. Cei ce inteleg ca exista o multitudine de nuante subtile, greu de observat, de clasat si-n special de urmat sunt bineveniti la granita dintre atitudine si delasare. Acolo este conflictul mental. Acceptarea lui este primul pas spre autodepasire.

Dark Fusion

Infiintat la sfarsitul anului 2009, Dark Fusion se vrea a fi un proiect menit sa trezeasca un pic de revolta in sanul oamenilor privind societatea in care ne aflam si sistemul din care facem parte fie ca vrem fie ca nu vrem. Practicand un stil destul de agresiv , o combinative de hardcore old school cu elemente de death si thrash metal, Dark Fusion , promoveaza libertate de exprimare si gandurile pe care le avem vis-à-vis de toate problemele care ne inconjoara fie ele sociale, economice, religioase sau militare. In acest moment trupa presteaza un fusion/hardcore/death metal.
