Read my review and check out my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of Slipknot's Summer's Last Stand Tour with Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine and Motionless In White.
Slipknot is no stranger to overcoming adversity, including the death of founding bassist Paul Gray in 2010 and the exit of longtime drummer Joey Jordison in 2013. While these events have undoubtedly impacted the band internally, their live show has gone unphased; it remains a spectacle of chaos, both sonically and visually.

Read my review and look at my photos from the final date of Slipknot's "Prepare for Hell" tour with Korn and King 810 on December 7 in Lowell, MA. The whole thing, I think, was sick.
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor didn't hesitate to call "Prepare for Hell" one of the best tours of the band's career. It says a lot that both Slipknot and Korn are still going strong, releasing interesting material and putting on such strong performances 15+ years later. The thousands of fans in attendance clearly loved it, and the late Gray would be proud to see his brothers carrying on his legacy with such reverence.

Read my review and take a look at my pictures of Say Anything, Saves The Day and Reggie and The Full Effect in Worcester, MA. Say Anything performed all of ...Is a Real Boy, Saves the Day played Through Being Cool, and Reggie dressed in Christmas costumes.
I've had the pleasure of seeing Say Anything more than a handful of times over the past decade, but I've never seen mastermind Max Bemis so invigorated, so confident, so happy to be on stage as he was at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on November 30th. His excitement was matched only by that of the crowd, who were eager to hear his modern masterpiece in its entirety. And the set began with a song of rebellion...

Read my review and check out of photos of GWAR's performance at Rock and Shock on Saturday with Life of Agony.
The members of GWAR are paying tribute to [Dave] Brockie the only way they know how: a killer rock show. Filled with monsters, metal and mayhem, it's exactly what he would have wanted. If you have the chance, support GWAR, the Slave Pit and Brockie's legacy by attending this tour. There's never a dull moment at a GWAR show - an understatement if there ever was one - but this one feels particularly special.

I saw The Menzingers on the second night of their headlining Rented World tour with Pup, Lemuria and Cayetana on Friday night at New York City's Webster Hall. Playing their biggest headlining show to date, the band put on an incredible performance with a near-perfect set list - check out my review in the replies.
What a band does on stage goes very far in determining whether they'll be a truly successful, A-list act. Writing a great record and having some hype around your name helps a band get to a place where they can go on good tours, play in bigger rooms and share their music with more people. Being a band that is more impressive on stage than on the record can help a group...
