The Monday Press: Blind Guardian, Beyond Creation, and More!
This week’s roundup is going the ways of crowdsourcing!
Seriously, I dug and I dug, and found almost no interesting news. I am going to need some help here, so if you found anything interesting over the past few days, post it down below! Here’s what I got:
Hate Eternal has some tour dates with, Vital Remains, Inanimate Existence, and Black Fast. IE has some extra solo dates if you are interested.
In the words of Oliva Newton John, “Let’s get Technical, Technical” with a Beyond Creation, Rivers of Nihil, and The Zenith Passage tour.
Blind Guardian and Grave Digger announced a tour. The dates on the poster were tiny and blurry, so here they are in text form:

Melodic Death / Folk Metal band, Eluveitie, parted ways with three members. They should be fine, considering their Wikipedia member graph looks like someone’s attempt to map a timeline of Inception or some weird time travel movie.
- Probably one of the coolest festival lineups I have ever seen is the Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault in August. Acts include Abbath, Aborted, Conan, Electric Wizard, Ihsahn, Mastodon, Vektor, and whole lot more.
- Electric Wizard are working on their ninth album, so look for that around October.
- New Sabaton album coming in August.
- There’s some band drama going on with Liv Kristine being kicked out of Leaves’ Eyes.
That’s seriously all I got. What obscure shit did I miss?
