Engraved In Bone was part of a tour package that never ended up happening. A promoter from the South wanted to send some touring bands our way and had already booked Engraved In Bone as a local opener. Then, the touring bands decided not to play in the Northeast.
A couple of weeks later, Nachzehrer contacted us, and we were so excited to hear from them that I jumped on the opportunity to book them for MT with the enthusiasm of a fat guy who hasn't eaten in 3 days at the Super Chinese Buffet.
Don't get me wrong, happy to play with them. They were even nice enough to offer to jump on the show we had in Somerville on Saturday at the VERY last minute.. but with all the space restrictions and the like we kept it a four band bill, for the good of the show I assume (small space was packed).
Really looking forward to this and glad the MT team is too. We need to play Worcester right, and not at the Raven heh
Just the way things happen sometimes. When previously confirmed tour packages change their plans, there may already be a local booked and no available slots on reasonably close substitute dates to offer the local band if the direction of the original show date changes. Similar thing happens when the touring band(s) are added late after the other bands are already booked, i.e. the Woods of Ypres show last year. We've had odd-band-out situations before and it usually works out fine. Usually.
I remember when there used to be barely any shows that had all metal bands playing, and you would have to sit through a bunch of hardcore and nu-metal bands just to see something good. It's a good thing that we have so many good shows now.
Agreed. Thanks again worcester for another crazy night.

pretty fucking solid night all around. didn't get as hammered as i thought i would, considering i was on an empty stomach [yeah guy, we need a better plan in terms of wings next time].
for the record if i catch anyone laying down/closing their eyes ON STAGE during any of my bands sets, I will personally piss all over you, incredibly disrespectful insulting act to do. at least go in the corner or to the back of the club. I DON'T AND WON'T REGRET SPILLING BEER OVER YOU.
haha wtf? i hope that guy got punched in the cockles

Adam Kohrman/MetalMessiah, after council with the metal elders we've noticed a disturbing sitting/laying down on stage trend occurring...this ain't no picnic, it's metal show, don't cry about being soaked in beer either WAKE UP AND MOVE.
But please don't waste beer on overnight metalheads.

was that during our set? didn't take it as an insult, just figured it was someone fucked up and nodding out.

see i could never strike the lad, the beer provides a stinging stench of humiliation and discipline that is an unspoken scorn.
