California Kult Black Metallers, VALDUR, will ravage unsuspecting ears at this year’s edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The band was recently added to the July 10th show at the Shoreline Amphitheater in San Francisco, California where they will systematically level the Jagermeister Stage and all those in attendance. Said the band in a collective statement: “We will be more than pleased to take this opportunity to play our Extreme Metal to unsuspecting people who otherwise may not be familiar with the underground.  We got asked to play, we said yes, and we very much appreciate Jagemeister for the invite. Expect a brutalizing set.”

Check out video footage from the band’s performance at the Oakland Black/Death Fest in March HERE:

In related news, VALDUR will perform LIVE on KDVS’s popular Raise The Dead radio show on KDVS July 9 at 12:00am PST/3:00am EST at http://www.kdvs.org. You can also catch the archive at http://kdvs.org/show-info/.
 

VALDUR are currently working on the follow-up to 2010’s unsympathetic Raven God Amongst Us full-length . Said the band of the four new tracks completed: “They will beckon a new and more intense era musically for VALDUR.”

Legendary alternative Metal band HELMET will perform their 1992 platinum-selling release of Meantime in its entirety. The Interscope Records release gave the band mainstream attention with songs like “Unsung” and “In The Meantime”.  With the band’s renewed success after getting back together in 2004, this tour will be one of the most anticipated of 2011.

One of the most highly influential Doom Metal bands in America, SAINT VITUS are regarded as one of the first bands of the genre starting out as early as the 1970’s. The band featuring Scott “Wino” Weinrich, bassist Mark Adams, guitarist Dave Chandler and drummer Henry Vasquez have influenced so many bands in Doom and Metal . “Saint Vitus is more than ready to infect The Metalliance Tour! We’ve been wanting to do something like this for some time now…so prepare for destruction!!” says lead guitarist Dave Chandler. The band has done a handful of shows and some European Festivals but this will be their first full US tour in over a decade.

CROWBAR front man Kirk Windstein concludes, “Wow! This tour is gonna rule! I’ve loved Helmet since the beginning and loved St. Vitus even longer. With the new Crowbar record having hit the streets by then, look out! This bill will bring just what we need to crush each city with an avalanche of stylistic thunder!”
