NIGHT DEMON Announce Another North American DIY Tour



Kosher Metal favorites, NIGHT DEMON, will hit the road this weekend through mid summer on a DIY tour of North America. The band released their debut album, Curse Of The Damned in January of this year and just completed a full European tour. They also just released their new single, “Satan” – you can check out the epic track here.

Lead singer/bassist Jarvis Leatherby had this to say about the upcoming tour (which he booked himself):

“Right on the heels of our ten week European tour, we are ready to hit the states in support of our new album Curse of the Damned. We will be performing shows all across this great land of ours in the following two and a half months, with support from the greatest local heavy metal bands in their respected areas. Much of this was booked on a DIY level, with extreme concentration on playing the right shows with the right promoters. Most of these will be headlining shows featuring the most comprehensive Night Demon setlist to date. We are primed and ready to fly the flag high for American heavy metal!”

NEW YEAR’S METALUTION – January 10th, 2015 @ The Tavern in Ventura

NYM copy

We are pleased to announce another Kosher Metal hosted event!

Our next event will be called New Year’s Metalution and will be held on January 10th, 2015 at The Tavern in Ventura, California. We loved that place so much, we just had to come back and bring a handful of kick ass Metal bands with us.

Bands scheduled to perform are: Ruthless, Heretic, Six Pack Of Doom, and Raiju


For those who are unfamiliar with The Tavern, it’s an old Victorian style house converted into a bar / nightclub in Downtown Ventura, CA. Supposedly, it’s haunted (if you believe in that sort of thing) – you can read up on the legend behind that here.

We look forward to seeing some familiar faces, and a bunch of new ones. You can RSVP to the Facebook event here.

Lineup For Rockstar Energy’s MAYHEM FESTIVAL ‘Leaked’ – And It Blows!


The official announcement regarding the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival lineup won’t be made until the end of March, however a “leaked” lineup is currently making its way around the interwebs….and it sucks balls. With the exception of a few acts, this lineup is a joke and could possibly be their worst lineup yet (assuming it’s accurate). This is the first year in a while that I’ve actually missed Ozz-fest. If this is not an accurate list, then maybe the organizers will make the official announcement early and squash this thing. If it is accurate….well then OY-VEY!

Avenged Sevenfold
Asking Alexandria
Cannibal Corpse
Suicide Silence
Miss May I
