Please note that due to a manufacturing delay, the vinyl edition of Ride The Void will not be available in select record shops until March 5, but all LP pre-order customers have already been sent a download code and — assuming they didn’t pre-order anything else that has not yet been released — will receive their orders in early February (approximately one month before the new street date), as soon as the records are in hand. We apologize for the delay, but hope that the download codes and a surprise gift we’ll include with all LP orders will help to make up for it.

Anthrax, Testament, Death Angel tour: Round 2



It’s been less than a month since the Anthrax/Testament co-headlining tour package swept through the area – Yes, you missed two veteran metal bands, who have stayed heavy (if not getting even more brutal over the years).

Lucky for you, the entire bill is staying put for round two.

Needless to say, Death Angel are big winners, having been invited to remain on board.

Breaking News from The BIG 4 @ Yankee Stadium

Yankee Stadium satellite view, nasa world wind...

TWR.com insider “Vince” sent the following report from The Big 4 @ Yankee Stadium.
5:22pm – Crowd is showing up
It looked like a Marlins game for Anthrax.
They were great though, the late arrivers missed out!

5:53pm – Just 4 songs so far (from Megadeth) just hit song 5 & it’s new shit. WTF?

5:56pm – Here we go, good #6 song

10:14pm – Metallica is f-ing great. Prob best of my 10 times seeing them!

Slayer was great as well. Megadeth finished strong but the first 5 songs were weak.

10:16pm – Feel bad. Anthrax played to 25% of the current crowd. They were amazing!

reports to follow as they arrive (if they arrive).

*Special thanks to Vince!
