Wednesday 13 with Mr. Fang and the Dark Tones at Elevation 27 in Virginia Beach September 21, 2022

by Glenn Woodell Virginia Beach was graced, or rather mortified with the presence of Wednesday 13 as they paid a visit to promote their upcoming album, Horrifier, during their 20 Years of Fear tour. Horror Metal is what I would call them although they’ve fallen under other categories as well. Their show is not so full of horror but their lyrics and of course their … Continue reading Wednesday 13 with Mr. Fang and the Dark Tones at Elevation 27 in Virginia Beach September 21, 2022

By Glenn Woodell Thanks to the traffic which normally turns the 45-minute drive into 60 minutes, this evening, it took a full two hours to make it to the venue. I therefore missed the photographers’ walkout to the stage for Behemoth who put on quite a visual show. I present to you the images from Gojira, Volbeat, and Slipknot. Gojira Volbeat Slipknot Setlist courtesy of … Continue reading Slipknot with Behemoth, Gojira, and Volbeat at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater, Virginia Beach, Virginia August 14th, 2019
