Goatwhore at Bowery Ballroom, 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Rumors about the lineup of the 2014 edition of the Metal Alliance package tour have been floating around for a while, but now they're much more substantial announced: the lineup will feature Behemoth in the headlining slot, with 1349, Goatwhore, Black Crown Initiate, and Inquisition. It's a compelling lineup -- Behemoth recently released a promising new song (with an NSFW video), and Inquisition's 2013 release Obscure Verses for the Multiverse was one of the year's most critically acclaimed metal albums. It's also the most black metal-intensive lineup in the tour's history, which says something about the genre's growing cachet.

Tickets for all dates, including NYC at Irving Plaza on 4/19, are on presale now. Tickets for the NYC show and at least some other dates officially go on sale Friday via Ticketmaster, after another presale via Ticketmaster Wednesday.

Everyone on the tour except Behemoth also plays the New England Metal & Hardcore Fest, which goes down from April 17-19 at the Worcester Palladium.

Check out the full run of dates, the tour flyer and that NSFW Behemoth video if you haven't seen it yet, below...

Hey, how do you keep a sausage in suspense?

how does a tour get officially announced hours ago, yet you still post a band thats not on it, and the original leaked dates missing two venues?

This tour keeps sharply declining in quality. At least I'll remember well the awesome Helmet/St. Vitus/Crowbar show.

A little bit of a mixup there sorry. Fixed now, thanks for the heads up!

What is the most important of all is that we would be able to like what we heard.

Is Frost going to be allowed in the country to play drums?

Posted by Anonymous | January 18, 2014 10:31 AM

I'd really like to see Frost, but I know Satyricon has a couple of dates in Europe that coincide with this tour. It's doubtful, though we're less than a month out and no replacement has been named (probably because it would affect ticket sales)

I never understood satanism or the people who hail satan. Can anyone explain to me what is your message and what is the point of your religion? (who is a satanist himself, a true satanist not a 15 year old angry kid who think he is, because he hates his parents)
