The year is 1985, and a pair of thrash bands named Slayer and Venom were preparing to head out on a US tour with a Finnish metal band named Oz
Oz (written OZ) is a heavy metal band from Finland who formed in 1977 and split in 1991. In 2010 drummer Mark Ruffneck (born Pekka Mark), bassist and main songwriter Jay C. Blade (born Jukka Homi, but has changed his name to Jukka Lewis) and vocalist Ape De Martini (born Tapani Hämäläinen) re-formed the band together with Costello Hautamäki and Markku Petander.Unfortunately, Oz had to give up that tour slot to a little band called Exodus, and the rest is history... The legendary Combat Tour was born.
They made a splash with their 1983 album Fire In The Brain, a New Wave Of British Heavy Metal-flavored energetic metal affair that won over critics and fans alike
Now after 28 years, Oz will finally fulfill their destiny with a trip to the US! Look for the band to be joined by October 31, Attacker and Natur at Saint Vitus on Saturday (5/11) Tickets are on sale, and you can stream some Oz material below.
Filipino warbringers Deiphago have scheduled a set of dates surrounding Maryland Deathfest, most of which will bombard the East Coast with their version of black death. The dates include a stop in NYC at Saint Vitus on May 28th with Mutant Supremacy, Damnatum and Agrath (tickets). All dates are below.
Check out "Prophecy" from Polish grind crew Antigama's Meteor, below. Look for the LP on Selfmadegod Records on May 28th 2013.

Not only has Maryland Deathfest (May 23-26, 2013) expanded with additions of Down (who recently played NYC), Melvins (them too), The Obsessed (!), Ufomammut, Deiphago (who is coming to NYC), Cobalt (as discussed), Evoken and more, they have also added a mostly-punk/grind/powerviolence stage too! The festival promises that set times will not overlap with the Baltimore Soundstage, which will host an Infest reunion (!), along with appearances from Citizens Arrest, Converge (who is on tour this fall), Iron Lung, Full of Hell (who is on tour with Gaza), Sete Star Sept, Vitamin X, Magrudergrind, Kromosom, Ilsa, and many more. Updated MDF lineup, with the new punk/hardcore/metal stage, is below.
Infest split in 1996 after ten years of pioneering a style that would later be known as "powerviolence":
The band, while not coining the term powerviolence, were definitely pioneers of it. The Los Angeles quartet blended the ethos, speed and song structure of hardcore, along with the aggression and anger of bands like Negative Approach and Negative FX creating a style emulated by many and an energy captured by few. Joe Denunzio's vocals exhibited pure angst, with lyrical content about conformity, war, scene politics and socio-political issues, mostly delivered in an accusation assault. -[Last.FM]Full lineup is below, along with vintage Infest clip and other MDF-related video.
