Gigantour (Megadeth, Motörhead, Volbeat, Lacuna Coil) - Tsongas Arena (Lowell, MA) - Sunday, January 29, 2012

5 February 2012

Loads of photos of four distinct bands that handle different areas of the broad metal genre…headliners Megadeth are well-known as pioneers of thrash metal, and Lemmy of Motörhead (interviewed in a recent print issue of The Big Takeover) is renowned for his relentless pursuit of hard driving music (what he just calls ‘rock and roll’).

Volbeat took a stab at creating a hybrid of meat and potatoes rock (and singer Michael Poulson ‘s arm tats celebrating Elvis Presley and Social Distortion give you an idea of where the band’s heading), and finally Italy’s Lacuna Coil take a more bristling approach to what Evanescence does.
