BONDED BY BLOOD will be playing their first cross-country shows on the Masters of Disaster tour. Alongside fellow thrash acts, EXMORTUS and WITCHAVEN, BONDED BY BLOOD vocalist, Jose “Aladdin” Barrales looks to take a little bit of the LA thrash scene to every town they play. As the excitable frontman explains, “This is our first Full US tour and we are really excited to play all over the US as more and more fans seem to want us to play their hometown.”

However as sweet as the tour is for each band on the bill, there is always the inevitable sour. Metal Maniacs magazine, as has been reported, has closed its doors. Before the esteemed metal institution went out of business, they had lent their name as the main sponsor for the tour. “Im honored and saddened that Metal Maniacs is sponsoring this tour” says Jose, who elaborates his position. “I’m honored that its a metal mag for metal fans that has always kept an eye out for smaller bands and I’m saddened that they are closing their doors. Thats one less mag of a scarce few there is that metal fan can get his hands on.”

Despite the bittersweet feelings that the closing of Metal Maniacs has brought to the tour, all of the bands intend to keep the underground spirit of the magazine alive by personally making sure that at each show no head is left unbanged and each body has been throughly thrashed.
