The “Communion of Sirens” tour – a double bill featuring two of Sweden’s greatest heavy metal exports – makes for some strange bedfellows. Their country of origin aside, Opeth and In Flames couldn’t be more different; the former plays progressive metal, the latter a blend of alternative and metalcore. But both share some death metal roots, and they also are known for having a single record that heralded a notable shift in their sound. With In Flames, it was 2001’s Reroute to Remain that morphed their sound from melodic death metal into metalcore, while Opeth’s Heritage in 2011 brought their 1970s progressive rock influence completely to the forefront, ditching the death growls in the process. Both bands have recorded further material since then, expanding their catalog and musical horizons without ignoring their previous work. Sure, some “true” fans may have written them off, but that’s their loss, if the densely crowded venue was any indication. Thus, the two Swedish heavyweights were a surprisingly natural fit to tour together, and they descended upon the Palladium in Worcester for their last US show before heading north. Read more

Halestorm played to a sold out crowd last Saturday at the Palladium in Worcester. The place was packed and these guys put on a great show. Lzzy Hale’s vocal work is amazing.[1] She has the ability to come across as sweet or playful one moment and hard and aggressive the next, sometimes in the same song (Mz. Hyde). Read more

Alice Cooper, Queen and Deep Purple. The names just roll off the tongue and identify an era of rock music that may never ever be duplicated again. In 2014 we are very fortunate that all three of these acts are not only still in circulation for their long time fan bases but are being enjoyed by a whole new generation of fans as well, with sell out shows all over the world. Eagle Rock Entertainment is offering up three DVD releases that will be a nice addition to any fans collection. Also each has its own unique perspective because we have a documentary with “Super Duper Alice Cooper Welcome to His Nightmare”, “Queen Live At The Rainbow ‘74” and “Deep Purple with Orchestra Live In Verona” circa 2011. Let’s take a peek at each shall we? Read more
