Killswitch Engage



He Is Legend

Killswitch Engage, Dragonforce, Chimaira, and He Is Legend
February 24 at Avalon

If you flipped through those photos casually, we want you to go back and check out how focussed Dragonforce's beer-through-a-straw game is. We are awed. Also, they fly. Holy shit.

Killswitch were without guitarist Adam D. due to a severely herniated disc sustained on the last KSE tour. ("If I didn't get emergency surgery, I was risking the possibility of paralysis below the waist," he emailed fans not long ago. "I opted to get surgery instead of crapping my pants for all eternity. I think it was a sweet move.") Which didn't stop the show from selling out a week in advance. Nor did it stop Boston metal royalty from showing up, including Shadows Fall's Brian Fair, the Seemless guys, and . . . Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton? Without photographic confirmation we'll have to take Carina's word on it, but she triple-pinkie-swears it was him.

(Also, was that Killswitch's lawyer we saw bro-ing down with the Bang Camaro dudes later that night? Big tings for dem boys...)

In the meantime, in lieu of the usual get-well-soon-gifts -- sweatpants, porn, Oxycontin -- Adam D. is asking for a different sort of care package:

I would like to personally thank the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE fans for all of the signs, chants, blogs, and means a lot to a fat crippled retard like myself. Hopefully, I won't be gone for too long. But, until my return, I will need all of your beef jerky for strength. Please send me all of your jerky to my 'Jerky Across The World' campaign, and together we will rally for good health through dried meet products. Please send donations to:
