"CAGE" (USA) Live am 3.12.2019 ab 19:30 Uhr im Dschungel-Club Moers / Support-Band: "Gloryful"
Moers-Scherpenberg Die aus San Diego in den USA stammende Heavy Metal-Band CAGE kommt im Zuge ihrer European Quick Strike Tour am 3. Dezember zum zweiten Mal nach drei Jahren wieder mit ihrer Show in den Moerser Dschungel-Club. Für dieses hammerstarke Rockspektakel konnte als Support zudem noch mit der Band GLORFUL ein absoluter Spitzen-Act der Szene verpflichtet werden.
Die Zeichen für einen gewaltigen Abend sind also gestellt!
CAGE formed in 1992 after the demise of local San Diego heavy metal stalwarts CRUSHER and NOMAD. From the ashes of those two bands would arise a metal machine that would evolve into one of Earth?s mightiest groups, whose exploits have become legend in the underground. Sometimes known as THE AMERICAN POWER METAL KINGS, CAGE has earned that moniker over two decades by gaining a reputation as an unmatched live act and by releasing one classic album after the next. As we head into a new era for the band with what may be their most fearsome lineup yet, they prepare to release their 7th, most ambitious album yet.
This new lineup will be pushed to the limit but they are ready for the task. CASEY "THE SENTINEL" TRASK is the new guitar player opposite original metal gang-star DAVE "CONAN" GARCIA. CASEY has a mesmerizing, natural stage presence to go along with his tasty, true metal style shredding. He instantly donned the leather pants and has added immensely to the writing of the new record.
Drummer SEAN "THE THRASHING MACHINE" ELG is perhaps the most entertaining drummer to watch CAGE has ever had. Mixing in the both the technical prowess and visual fireworks makes him the ultimate warrior on the skins. Relentless is the word that comes to mind and his attitude and love for the glory of steel is matched only by his drive to be the best he can be.
DWIGHT MAGIC is the bass wizard CAGE has always wanted and now has. No matter how many strings he is playing the thunder never stops. DWIGHT also has contributed to the writing which is the first time CAGE has had this additional luxury. Being a true musical guru has not stopped this madman from releasing his inner beast every time we hit the stage!
Singer SEAN "THE HELL DESTROYER" PECK and DAVE GARCIA continue to drive this battleship straight into the breach without fear!Listing past accomplishments seems trite as this narrative is meant to look forward to where the CAGE MARK V lineup will strike next. A 7th cd, and a severe increase in worldwide touring. Keep your eyes open and prepare for battle!!
Johnny La Bomba and Jens Basten founded GLORYFUL in the summer of 2010. The 3-track demo "Sedna?s Revenge" gained them a high reputation in the heavy metal underground, and the band soon started to play the opening slot for bands like Powerwolf, Vicious Rumours, Orden Ogan or Helstar, and left pleased crowds with high expectations for the debut album behind. The debut "The Warrior?s Code", produced by Dan Swanö, was released in May 2013 and received rave reviews from international fans and the press alike. The album was then promoted over the course of more than 30 gigs with bands like Queensryche, Axxis, Bullet or High Spirits. Only 10 months after the release of the strong debut, the five heavy metal maniacs released the studio album "Ocean Blade", which was praised worldwide. The fan base grew even larger due to live gigs with acts like Accept, Hammerfall and Powerwolf. "End Of The Night, the band?s 3rd album, was released 08-2016. Whoever thought that they can?t get any better, was clearly wrong: The record once again was full of potential hit songs, and the band?s most mature and sophisticated effort so far. The album release was followed by european tour with Victor Smolski´s ALMANAC and the band performed furious live shows at open air festivals like Summer Breeze Open Air and Dong Open Air. Right after the festival season 2017, the band cooncentrated on songwriting for album no. 4.
