Detective Burt Williams has been on the trail of the infamous “Poe killer” for nearly three years. The most recent abduction of fashion model Heather Makepiece prompts state authorities to bring in the FBI. Burt’s daughter Kris Williams, a homicide agent for the FBI, along with her partner Sean Michaels take over. Burt reluctantly steps down from the case and retires. For the next seven months the “Poe Killer” continues his murderous rampage, until Kris discovers that the killer uses internet chat rooms to seduce his prey. She logs in as Annabel Lee and sure enough, he contacts her. With the help of Larry the tech guy, she sets up a meeting at a nearby bowling alley. But, when things go wrong and Kris is abducted and her partner Sean is slaughtered, it becomes a race against time for Burt and ex-partner Grace Andrews to find Kris before she becomes the next victim of the “Poe Killer”.
Hailing from Poland, Riverside have been putting out consistently great music for many years now. It’d be nearly impossible to define what category of “prog rock” they exactly fall under, but that’s what make them stand out from the crowd. They are one of those bands that have such a unique sound that it is easy to immediately identify them, an increasingly rare talent these days.
So upon receiving a copy of their new album Shrine Of New Generation Slaves, I knew I was in for something special, something that would challenge me. But have they delivered once again or did they fall fail to live up to their past greatness? Read on below for my thoughts! READ MORE
King’s X. Kansas. Touring together. Yeah, this is happening. And it’s not coming ANYWHERE NEAR ME!!! DAMMIT!!! But seriously, how awesome of a tour is this? On top of the two legendary prog-rock bands performing, the one-man band That 1 Guy (Mike Silverman) will open on select dates. Tickets go on sale June 15th, unless otherwise noted. Tour dates are listed below.
King’s X will be touring in support of their latest release Live Love In London, a live offering recorded in 2009 at the Electric Ballroom.
Earlier this year, King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill suffered a severe heart attack and was hospitalized. Now he states, “Not too long ago I was thinking I might not ever get back on a stage, now I’m ready and with the ok from all my doctors. What better way to get back than to tour with the legendary KANSAS. Let’s rock…”
Original Kansas member Richard Williams (guitars): “We are really looking forward to the upcoming shows with KING’S X. They’re a great band and a force to be reckoned with. It’s a tour like this that allows us to dig a little bit deeper into our catalogue and play a few songs that KANSAS fans haven’t heard for a while. It’s gonna be a lot of fun!” READ MORE
