Appearing as special guests to Avatar, the tour takes in eleven countries across 19 shows, including the band’s first show in the Czech Republic.

Asking Alexandria - From Death to Destiny

It is to wonder how a few, truly untalented guys with no songwriting skills whatsoever can make money out of the music industry while other gifted artists stay underground for all of their life. I bet we all know that life ain’t fair but this thing with all those metalcore/gay/wannabe extreme/melodious (or gaycore as I’d like to call ‘em) bands has gone over the top. How long will adolescents, who can be manipulated more easily by the major labels and all the internet ads etc., affect the music map and give shitty bands popularity and wealth?!

The Defiled - Daggers

All this metalcore, “extreme”, groovy, gay rock/metal trend of our time has started becoming a bit annoying at long last. First is the “big metal labels” that used to promote and support metal music (I won’t write “true” for it would be misunderstood by many) which have made a major opening to this new tendency and second is that the newest generation finds this kind of music interesting. In truth to be told, bands of that genre sell like crazy this time when every big metal band has taken the downside so, if you’re a label you’re thinking of how many copies you must sell so as to make money and not of the well-being of metal music itself.

HIM - Tears on Tape

Who would have thought that when HIM began their career in the late 90s they would create a whole new gay love metal gothic union! I’m sure they also couldn’t foresee that thing. But yeap, due to HIM we have those big gayVamp “epic” films like “Twilight” and the “glorious” TV series “The Vampire Diaries”! Especially in our time it is a “must” to be a gay vampire or werewolf just for the sake of it. Teen girls absolutely love ‘em and loveless teen boys are envy of their “gay idols” that have so great an impact on the girls’ community.
