  • Sevendust - KILL THE FLAW

    When I first saw Sevendust’s new release was titled KILL THE FLAW, my initial thought was “what exactly is the flaw?” It leads you to wonder just what it is that caused this band to not break big, while bands with lesser quality catalogs like Disturbed or Korn had such crazy amounts of success at the same time. This

  • Iron Maiden - THE BOOK OF SOULS

    They don’t do it that often anymore, but there’s always excitement when Iron Maiden comes out with new music. Knowing that they are closing in on the end of their career, you really do end up hoping that when they go out for good, it will be with a bang. I think it’s universally agreed upon that

  • Slayer - REPENTLESS

    Probably more than any release in their history, Slayer came into releasing this album at a crossroads. This WAS the album that, in many ways, dictated if the band could continue on or if it was indeed time to drift off quietly to Hell. The loss of guitarist Jeff Hanneman and the removal of drummer Dave Lombardo had almost every Slayer

  • Operation: Mindcrime - THE KEY

    Geoff Tate’s falling out and subsequent two years of lawsuits, multiple versions of the same band and overall craziness in the press definitely tarnished a legacy that once seemed untouchable. Think about it. Even with over a decade of arguably bad releases (Q2K, TRIBE, AMERICAN SOLDIER, DEDICATED TO CHAOS), it wasn’t until the now infamous spitting incident and the

    W.A.S.P. is one of those bands that has a ridiculously loyal fanbase...and good for them, actually. Doing THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW, we get shit on repeatedly anytime we say anything that is less than glowing about W.A.S.P., Blackie Lawless or any of the band’s former or present members. Oh well...comes with the territory, I guess. After what seems like quite a

Image: Escape The Fate, Pitriff, NewsApril 4, 2012 – Escape The Fate along with Attack Attack! will begin the This World Is Ours Tour tomorrow in Buffalo, NY on April 5th. The 33-city tour will go coast to coast and joining the two headliners on the road will be The Word Alive, Secrets and Mest.

“We have had a rough few years, and this year was probably the toughest,” commented Escape The Fate lead singer Craig Mabbitt. “I don’t think I personally have been more excited to step foot on a stage and play a show for our fans. We also have so many good friends and family that are sharing the road with us on this tour, so I really hope you’re as excited as I am for the ‘This World Is Ours Tour’.”


“I’m very excited about this tour,” added Escape The Fate drummer Robert Ortiz. “This is our chance to go back to our roots and get back out to the fans that truly care about us. The tour is also meant serve our need to be on stage together as much as it does for our fans to see us there. Although we have had our share of problems in recent years, but we are here to stay. We aren’t pulling any punches. Anyone who has seen us at our strongest knows that at our very core, we bring it live. We are back, we are strong, and we are here to stay.”

Escape the Fate has been in the midst of recording a new album which will be their second time working with producer John Feldmann (The Used, Story of the Year). The band’s forthcoming fourth album will be released later in 2012. Escape The Fate released their self titled third album Escape the Fate which debuted at #25 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its release in 2010.
