Being a metalhead usually means you attend shows, show off your most badass band merch, and drink beer(if you’re over 21 or at a house show). Luckily for us, metal shows are happening almost every day, so there’s almost always an excuse to brave the hostile yet friendly world of the pit. The following are shows I’m planning on attending in the near future, and as you will see, it’s gonna be quite the undertaking.
April 2: Wormrot, Tombs, Abnormality, Sexcrement, Living Void, and Scaphism at Club Oasis, Worcester, MA
April 16: New England Metal/Hardcore Fest at the Worcester Palladium
April 22: Sepultura, Hate, Neuraxis, Bonded By Blood, and Belphegor, also at the Palladium
April 23: Symphony X, Nevermore, Powerglove, and Blackguard, at the Palladium
April 25: Volbeat, Hourcast, The Damned Things at Paradise Rock Club in Downtown Boston
May 9: Dillinger Esc. Plan and Deftones at The House Of Blues, Boston
May 12: North American Reckoning Tour with Destruction, Heathen, Razormaze, Warbeast, Panzerbastard and Cold Northern Vengeance at The Church, Boston
