I knew Nightwish was a big draw, but I’d never seen a show as packed as this one. When we arrived, we were greeted with the longest waiting line I’d ever seen. It snaked around the entire block, then back into the parking lot, where it curled around itself again. I spent most of the time wondering just how in the seven hells everyone was going to fit inside the venue, let alone how long it would take to reach the door. Much to my surprise, we only waited in line for less than an hour. Kudos to the Palladium staff for getting everyone into the building quickly and safely. Read more

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

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

Concert Gallery: Hank III at The Palladium in Worcester, MA

You might call Hank III ambitious but releasing four new albums in three different genres is just another day in the life for the genre-bending musician.

On September 6 Hank III released the countrified double album  Ghost to a Ghost/Guttertown, the doom rocker Attention Deficit Domination, and Cattle Callin, his pioneering sound of  speed metal surrounding actual cattle auctioneering.

All three albums were released on his own label, recorded in his own studio, and oh yeah, he played most of the instruments.

Hank III, currently out on the road, brought the show to the Palladium in Worcester, MA on November 18th for a night that would see three sets and three sides of Hank III.

Check out our photos from the show below!

Hank III is on tour though the beginning of December, check out the remaining tour dates after the photo gallery.
