We’ve long witnessed the Second Coming. Now, we’ve got something that’s sure to get you counting down the days to PULP SUMMER SLAM XX: Judgement Day—something to get you ready for the 20th installment of Southeast Asia’s loudest and longest-running Metal festival!
We’ll be together again in the pit soon enough—Minnesota’s After The Burial are coming to Manila to usher in the Metal madness of the Slam, bringing an excitement that can only grow stronger in the coming months. AFTER THE BURIAL LIVE IN MANILA: COUNTDOWN TO PULP SUMMER SLAM XX happens this August 21, 2019 at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA.
Coming from a string of tours—all over the US with Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive in April/May; Australia in June; and in the UK/Europe for most of August—After The Burial are showing no signs of stopping and are making their way to Asia, with Manila as the kickoff show of this leg of their World Tour.
The long-time metal band, with its current lineup of Dan Carle (drums), Anthony Notarmaso (vocals), Adrian Oropeza (bass), and Trent Hafdahl (guitar), has just released a brand new record. Released last April 19th via Sumerian Records, Evergreen is the sixth album to come from After The Burial—a new addition to their growing catalog of scorching heavy-hitters, and an effortless expansion of the sound they’ve built through the years.
Looking back on Rareform, their highly acclaimed second album which celebrated its 10th Anniversary in 2018, and other earlier releases, the progression is apparent in so many ways throughout Evergreen—from the release of singles “Behold The Crown” and “Exit, Exist,” the album had been a highly anticipated one, with fans looking to discover how the band would build upon the strength of their previously released record, Dig Deep (2016). Intricate yet uninhibited, crushing yet precise—the band’s music is “tech-wizardry” amplified to a whole new level. Their latest opus only proves they are masters of their sound.
“Evergreen becomes me.” Indeed, what After The Burial continue to become is a band whose technical songcraft is ever-evolving yet timeless and refreshing. Presented by PULP Live World and Skesh Entertainment, AFTER THE BURIAL LIVE IN MANILA: COUNTDOWN TO PULP SUMMER SLAM XX is happening on August 21, 2019 at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA.
