Maryland doom/heavy rock statesmen Iron Man and Virginia’s energetic death-power metal upstarts have teamed up for an 11-city tour of destruction through New England and the Midwest that begins in Washington, DC on March 12. It’s a literal tour of death and doom. Get it? Anyway…. see cool tour poster below!
If you’ve been to a metal show at Northern Virginia’s Empire, you’ve likely caught Yesterday’s Saints melodic take on the genre hybrid, as they are one of the venues favorite opening bands. Followers of Maryland’s storied doom legacy should be well versed in Iron Man’s 25 year history and the crushing power of guitarist Alfred Morris III’s legendary riffs. Together this touring package will showcase the treasure trove of metal goodness bubbling up along the Baltimore/Washington corridor.
Iron Man continues to find favor with audiences and listeners since the late 2013 release of their fifth full-length album South of the Earth (Rise Above Records/Metal Blade). Yesterday’s Saints is touring in support of the February launch of their sophomore recording, the concept album Generation of Vipers (Draconum).
This tour is unusual and not likely to be repeated. Don’t miss out!
