Megadeth, Slayer, and special guests Testament kick off the first leg of the “American Carnage” tour today (August 11) at the Glens Falls Civic Center in Glen Falls, New York with the 19-city trek wrapping up in Portland, Oregon on September 4. After a successful “Canadian Carnage” run in July, Megadeth will continue to roar through its landmark 1990 album “Rust In Peace” from front to back, while Slayer will rip the roof off by performing its much-lauded “Seasons In The Abyss” album, which was also released in 1990. The second leg of “American Carnage” will kick off on September 24 with special guests Anthrax. For all tour info, visit the Killing Road.

VIRGIN STEELE will release their new album “The Black Light Bacchanalia” on November 9th, in North America on SPV/Steamhammer. The album will be available as a limited edition digipak, a standard CD, double gatefold vinyl and digital download.
Tracks titles that will be on the album include:
BY THE HAMMER OF ZEUS
THE BREAD OF WICKEDNESS
THE ORPHEUS TABOO
IN A DREAM OF FIRE
NECROPOLIS (He Answers Them With Death)
TO CROWN THEM WITH HALOS Parts 1 & 2
THE TORTURE’S OF THE DAMNED
THE BLACK LIGHT BACCHANALIA (The Age That Is To Come)
Vocalist David Defeis commented on “The Black Light Bacchanalia”:
It will be a long album…close to 80 minutes…The album (to be really brief), concerns the reversal of all things…Once conquered by invading cultures, older Pagan deities become the demons…of the new religion. “The Black Light Bacchanalia” is a reversal of the sacred sexual customs, and the final desecration of the “Goddess Principle”, switching from matrilineal descent to patrilineal descent, with the rise of the idea of the Mountain-Fire God…. And it also has to do with ancient fears such as the fear of the sun not rising…Lyrically it is a kind of continuation of the story I told on the last album…Musically it is quite something else…”
VIRGIN STEELE‘s new worldwide deal with SPV/Steamhammer includes the reissue of the band’s entire back catalogue – from “Noble Savage” onward. The back catalog will be made available throughout 2011, with faithfully restored covers and booklets, bonus tracks and liner notes.
I don’t think any true music lover will be disappointed with this album, but rather very surprised by the chance taken by Frank Hannon, the artist…
