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

I had a “bad girlfriend” once. It’s not as fun as Tyler Connolly makes it sound in their 2008 hit of the same name. They played it to close off their show last Tuesday at the House of Blues in Boston. It reminded me why I like of lot of their stuff. They just don’t seem to give a crap if some people get offended at their lyrics, and that lets them explore less politically correct themes. Read more

It’s a relatively rare occurrence when folk metal bands come to New England and it’s not the dead of winter, with fans freezing their asses off. So, it was most welcome to hang around in forty-plus degree weather rather than four degrees when Finntroll dropped in with some impressive supporting acts in tow. Oh, and there were guys in chainmail, leather armor, and kilts folk dancing in the mosh pit. With that mental image, let’s get started. Read more
