The Wiltern | Los Angeles, California
The very last stop on the road for the Deadmen And Dragons Tour featuring Trivium joined by Between The Buried And Me, Whitechapel and Khemmis at The Wiltern on Thursday, November 10th 2022. This awesome bill of heavy bands will hit the stage in Los Angeles, expect a night of death metal, melodic death metal, grindcore, power metal, prog, ethereal and, at times, beautiful melodic passages of music… you know, like the kind of stuff your gram might enjoy… providing she once rode a motorcycle, got a tattoo, or six, and enjoyed the pleasures of thrash metal music! Grab some tickets, get ready to METAL!!!
At the tour announcement, Trivium spent more time promoting their supporting acts than themselves, dedicating substantial space to documenting their fandom of the three bands joining them on the run. “Between the Buried and Me are the pioneers of mixing genres well before anyone else had,” says lead singer and guitar player Matt Heafy of his tour mates, "BTBAM back in 2002 – on their impeccable self-titled album – showed that they were unapologetically ready to mix elements of death metal, melodic death metal, grindcore, power metal, prog, ethereal – at times beautiful – passages of melody. Their self-titled record was a massive influence on me; I was captivated by the immense mixture of so many styles. Through their combining of a vast range of sonics and soundscapes, they created a sound that is truly their own."
Guitarist Corey Beaulieu added that, "We're excited to have Whitechapel be a part of this amazing bill. It's been over 10 years since we toured together on the Shogun tour, and seeing how the band has progressed over the years and added a killer melodic element to their brutal sound just makes it a perfect time to share the stage once again."
And then bassist Paolo shared his, "favorite new bands of the last few years", Khemmis: "When we were putting the tour together, I heavily advocated for having them on the bill. I think it's always a testament to a band's sound when you have trouble pinning a label to it – doom, melodic metal, thrash, death metal. With Khemmis, it's all in there and rocks hard. They are a 10/10 live band and did a great cover of Rainbow In The Dark, so do not miss their set!"
