Detroit’s Midtown is buzzing with culture and is home to some of the best music venues in the city. At the heart of this exciting district rests the prestigious Majestic Theatre. The building is over one hundred years old and carries a lot of music history in its walls. Last Thursday the venue’s marquee lit up with the name Apocalyptica. The Finnish act brought their Cell-0 Tour to Motor City, and they picked the perfect place to promote their latest record. Along with Italy’s Lacuna Coil, the night was set up for an enchanting experience filled with glamor, energy, and theatrics. The brisk April night started off with a queue of symphonic metal enthusiasts lining up around the building. Soon the large and ornate theatre room was filled with eager devotees ready for the music to begin.
The Goth tinged band The Nocturnal Affair opened the night. Armed with the deep and beautiful vocals of Brendan Shane, They are a really heavy gloomy doom band that’s kind of hopeful. A weird mix, I know. Thanks to strong as hell wireless mic, Shane took to the crowd , from up in the seats and to the pit and back again!
Metallica has shared a video of the band performing the Thin Lizzy classic “Whiskey In The Jar” in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. The performance was originally part of their Worldwired World Tour at Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland, on June 8, 2019. The video was originally seen as part of Metallica’s pandemic-era live concert streaming series Metallica Mondays. For Metallica, it is their most-popular cover ever, with a charting single in 1999 and a music video that was played on MTV. Thin Lizzy is Ireland’s greatest band and their interpretation of “Whiskey In The Jar” – a classic Irish folk song is one of theory best known songs.
Corey Taylor – CMFB…sides (Roadrunner)
Say what you like about Slipknot / Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor, whose ubiquity and happiness to share his thoughts on any and every subject put before him may well have contributed to his divisive standing, his love of music and willingness to represent the full spectrum of his tastes in his output is to be admired. And, while relentless touring may have previously restrained the recorded output, making the most of the opportunity to spend more time in the studio, the past couple of years have seen a rawkier debut solo record, and this sister piece.
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor released his debut solo album last year – CMFT (Roadruner Records). Now he will release CMFB…Sides EP of covers and unplugged tracks on February 25th, 2022 via Roadrunner Records. Pre-orders are live at the link below. Check out the music videos for Stone Sour tracks “Home” and “Zzyzx Rd.” from CMFT Live.
