Texas Review
The must-see Metal Tour Of The Year co-headlined by Megadeth and Lamb Of God will soon lay waste to cities across North America as the highly anticipated trek finally hits the road. Joining them as previously planned will be special guests Trivium and Hatebreed. Note, In Flames was planned to be on the lineup but is unable to join the tour due to international visa issues.

The tour starts at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater in Austin, Texas on August 20, 2021. Tickets and more information is available at Germania Insurance Amphitheater.

Megadeth have taken their place as one of metal’s most influential and respected acts—not to mention among its most successful. They have gone on to sell more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including a 2017 Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track “Dystopia,” 12 Grammy nominations, and scoring five consecutive platinum albums. With sheer determination and a relentless recording and touring schedule, Megadeth worked their way up from headlining clubs to headlining arenas, festival and stadiums, cementing a legacy that continues to grow and spread throughout the world.

Lamb of God propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake, released in 2004, was the first Lamb of God album to be certified gold by the RIAA, as was 2006’s Sacrament, which also made a Top 10 Billboard 200 chart debut. In 2009, Lamb of God released Wrath, their first with Wilbur at producer, and earned the number one album spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts, with a number two position on the Billboard 200.

Trivium is an American heavy metal band known for their mix of thrash, progressive, and metal-core styles, as well for frontman Matt Heafy’s cinematic lyrics. since their start in 2000, the four-member band has sold more than a million albums and toured alongside other big-ticket metal acts like Iron Maiden, As I Lay Dying, and GWAR.

Hatebreed is considered an influence on hardcore, metalcore, and heavy metal, in no small part because of punishing live shows that lend themselves to circle pits. Led by gravel-voiced frontman Jamey Jasta, who favors an aggressive, speak-singing delivery and a galvanizing stage presence, the band unleashes sludgy music driven by piledriving riffs and drums. Early on, Hatebreed toured with Slayer, Deftones Napalm Death, and were also on heavy package tours, including the 2004 Unholy Alliance Tour that also featured Slayer, Slipknot, and Mastodon. Later years have found Hatebreed teaming up with DevilDriver, Cro-Mags, Obituary, and Terror.
