Taste of Chaos 2008 (Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, and Atreyu)

Comments Off on Taste of Chaos 2008 (Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold, and Atreyu)

With the title track from their upcoming album, “Scream Aim Fire,” already blazing at Rock Radio, the Welsh metal-core band BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE announces that they will join forces with Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu on the Main Stage for “Taste of Chaos,” 2008. The tour kicks off Friday, February 29 in Denver, CO, and will play more than 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada through to late April. The UK’s Kerrang! magazine recently cited a Bullet show at London’s Brixton Academy as one of the “100 Greatest Gigs Ever,” so U.S. fans should be in for a string of sensational performances.

The “Taste of Chaos” dates will be the first North American tour for Bullet For My Valentine since early 2007 when they sold out their first headline tour this side of “the Pond.” Just prior to “Taste of Chaos,” B4MV will play three weeks-worth of headline dates in the UK and Europe, including a kick-off concert in their native Wales.

Bullet For My Valentine – Matthew “Matt” Tuck/vocals, Michael “Padge” Paget/Guitar, Michael “Moose” Thomas/drums, and Jason “Jay” James/Bass – saw their 2006 debut album, “The Poison” – dubbed “One of the finest debut albums in rock history” by a major UK daily – sail past the million sales mark, selling 350,000 in the U.S. alone.

“Scream Aim Fire” was produced by Colin Richardson (Machinehead, Funeral For A Friend) who also produced “The Poison,” and was recorded at Sonic Ranch near El Paso, TX earlier this year. The eleven new songs are, according to frontman Tuck, “really melodic heavy metal…catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals, with the music being very in-your-face and heavy…it’s a lot more uptempo [than ‘The Poison’], a lot more aggressive.” Still a week away from the official U.S. radio “add” date, the album’s title track has been the #1 Most Added track at CMJ’s Loud Rock chart, and #1 Most Added at FMQB’s Metal Detector chart.

Echo The Sky

Hometown: Kansas City, Missouri
Genre: Rock, Progressive, Electronica
Sounds like: Incubus, Bedlight For Blueyes, Valencia
Current Album: Echo The Sky
Official Site:

It amazes me to hear this band, or should a say a couple guys. Echo The Sky consists of two guys, that completely blow you away to think that that much sound could come from just the two of them. These talented guys have recently released a 10 track self titled, self produced album that is definitely one to be reckoned with.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Avenged Sevenfold Seize The Day

Back in 1999, Nine Inch Nails makes their first-ever appearance at a televised honors show when they perform at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. That same year they also released The Fragile which was nominated for Best Alternative Music Performance.

And there she was, reflecting so brightly the warmth that she installs and there she was, we were infinite for a moment.

Dexter Holland, of The Offspring has the following to say about their upcoming album:

Still working on the record over here. Most of the music is recorded and we’re working on vocals now. We counted up the other day, we actually demo’d 23 songs for this CD. Wow! That’s a new record for us. Of those we’ve recorded 13. Will they all be on the album? I don’t know! We’ll see how they turn out. Maybe we’ll cut one, or maybe we’ll write a couple more. Because we’re artists we’re flaky like that.

This will be their 8th studio album and their 1st album featuring new drummer Atom Willard. Bob Rock, whom previously produced Metallica, will be producing the album. They hope to release the album this fall, 2007. The album, and track titles have still yet to be released.

The Offspring is scheduled to appear at the Summer Sonic Festival this August 11th & 12th in Japan. Other bands to appear at the festival include Sum 41, Avenged Sevenfold, Bloc Party, Interpol, and Cyndi Lauper.

The Confession

Hometown: Orange County, CA
Genre: Hard Rock, Metal
Sounds like: Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu
Current Album: The Confession
Official Site:

The Confession comes out with a lot of energy. I recently seen them in concert this past weekend and I was very impressed. I even picked up their EP and upcoming album Requiem. The Confession sounds very similar to Avenged Sevenfold, so much that even M. Shadows of A7X guest vocals on some of their tracks. Their album Requiem is scheduled to be released on June 19th. Listen to No Angel, Dance With The Devil, and Bleed You Dry. I expect to hear more about this guys. Oh and you can see them this year at Warped Tour.

In 1999, In no way was there an influence on Eric Harris and Dylan Kleibold, the gunman in Littleton Colo. shooting, Marilyn Manson issues a statement: “I have been asked to comment by numerous news organizations on the Colorado school tragedy. It’s tragic and disgusting anytime young people’s lives are taken in an act of senseless violence. My condolences go out to the students and their families.”

Maybe its already too late to tell if its luck or if its fate
