“I’m really happy to be back in the US this May with the mightiest of all…Sepultura. A new ‘Klash Of The Titans’ partnership and an absolutely stacked bill from start to finish. I’m looking forward to checking out Spiritworld live – a great new band with big riffs. Plus sharing the stage with the legendary Death Angel. Awesome! Can’t wait…see you in the pit!”

Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser added:

“I’m very excited to be back in North America with our friends and my personal idols Kreator! They were a very strong influence in our early days, and it’s great to see they are stronger than ever, which is how I feel with Sepultura as well. It’s going to be a historical run. Thrilled to have our brothers from Death Angel and the awesome Spiritworld with us. Do not miss this, metal is alive and well, so let’s celebrate ‘Klash of the Titans North America 2023’ on the road! See you all soon!”

Bay Area Interthrashional (Ex-Forbidden, Etc.) Announce San Francisco, CA Show

Bay Area Interthrashional, the project featuring core members Craig Locicero (ex-Forbidden), Harald Oimoen (ex-D.R.I.), Chris Kontos (ex-Machine Head), Mark Hernandez (ex-Forbidden), Matt Camacho (ex-Forbidden), and Steve Smyth (ex-Nevermore), will be performing at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA on October 29. They will also be joined by Will Carroll (Death Angel), Josh Christian (Toxik), Mike DeLeon (Incite), and Norman Skinner (Niviane). Surprise guests from Vio-lence, Machine Head, Forbidden, Death Angel, Warbringer, Defiance, Hellfire, Hatriot, Skinlab, and Sacrilege will take part as well.

The band commented:

“We are excited by the prospects of Bay Area Interthrashional once again going international in the future… As for now, this is our USA date. The exclusive and only chance to see it.

Much like the performance at Dynamo, at its essence this will be a live and raucous tribute to Bay Area thrash metal! This time with many more twists, turns, surprises and big reveals. We’re sorry that it’s only one night.

Bay Area Interthrashional will be the only act of the night. We are dividing the show into three separate sets: American, international and Bay Area thrash. These sets will be spanning the major players and influences of our origins. In addition, we are announcing it’s Halloween weekend! There will be two separate costume contests during the evening. We want to see everyone dress up and represent their very best Paul Baloff and Cliff Burton in honor of our fallen heroes. The contestants will be brought up on stage and the audience will choose. the winner. The two best costumes chosen by the crowd will receive a Dean guitar signed by all of the Bay Area Interthrashional players.

And lastly, do you want to get up on stage with us at the Great American Music Hall? We want you to send in video submissions singing Metallica’s ‘Seek & Destroy’. Whoever sings it best gets two free tickets to the show and something even cooler… They get to perform in front of everybody at the show alongside the band! YOU get to jam with Bay Area Interthrashional in front of the sold-out audience. (Travel and hotel expenses are not included.) Send your video via WeTransfer to bayareainterthrashional@gmailcom.”

Locicero added:

“When the organizers of Dynamo Metalfest asked me to do this three years ago, before Covid, I had hoped it would eventually turn into something special. It exceeded our expectations in Holland. We knew that we had to give the thrash fans here in Bay their own version. Three separate sets spanning 36 songs of American, international and Bay Area thrash, including much of its original origins and influences. We intend on making it THE thrash metal Halloween blowout for the ages!”

During an episode of his “Alive & Streaming” livestream series, Death Angel’s Ted Aguilar revealed that the band have some new material in the works. He said the following:

“There is new music being worked on. There are some skeletons that [have] been floating around before [‘The Bay Strikes Back’ U.S.] tour. We’ll probably start continuing maybe. If we have some time before [we leave for shows in] Europe [this summer], maybe we’ll get together and work on some stuff. That’s for sure. But there’s some new material floating around. Nothing set in stone yet — just some skeletons.”
