    Magma Dragon, Dethlehem August 12, 2014Magma Dragon, Dethlehem 8:00pm $10.00 Project of Dan Clark (The Mighty Chouffe, Justin Vernon's Goddamn Cabin, The Dark Clan, Stromkern, am.pscyh, Ego Likeness, and The Gothsicles) and Dave Norman (Lockjaw, ex-Dark Clan), Magma Dragon is intended to fuse badass american headbanging riffs with fucking epic-ass euro power metal. Sharpen your sword and prepare for battle. Dethlehem... a band of warriors on a quest to achieve maximum XP and deliver face-melting metal. When their home realm, Ghorusalem (Pittsburgh, PA), fell to an ancient evil, the group of heroes rose together to do battle under the cursed sky! Influenced by melodic metal, progressive rock, maidens in distress, epic solos, RPGs, and delicious ale, Dethlehem brings a unique, tongue-in-cheek stage show to each realm they visit. Huge inflatable sword battles in the crowd, an 8' tall fog-breathing stage dragon, treasure goblins, video presentations, and beautiful maidens are not at all uncommon at a Dethlehem show. Lyrically, Dethlehem tell their mythos linearly across a series of albums known as "The Ghorusalem Codex", with each song telling of their journey to save their land. "Volume I: Enthroned Upon A Spire" (2009) explained the origin of a treasure-hungry, shapeshifting goblin-dragon named Yagolith and his rise to power over the land of Ghorusalem. Residing in the capital city, Dethlehem (the band's namesake), Yagolith commanded undead armies, ancient dragons, soul-hags and frost giants to do his bidding. Out of this tyranny, the realm's only defense were the warriors of Dethlehem, banded together from across the land to defeat the evil plaguing their land. Returning home after their victory against Yagolith, "The Ghorusalem Codex, Volume II: Of Magick & Tyranny" (2011) finds the warriors learning that their villages had been destroyed by a new evil. Dregmour, a powerful warlock, is opening ancient portals to an unknown shadow realm to unleash chaotic evil upon Ghorusalem. The warriors of Dethlehem once again band together and quest to completion. Dethlehem has been leveling up, combining metal, comedy, partying, and fun into an entertaining stage show. Since being selected as a finalist in Metal Insider & Scion's Top 20 "No Label Needed" unsigned metal band contest in 2010, Dethlehem has picked up momentum with plans to increase their already busy touring schedule. These RPG-Metal warriors have shared the stage with the likes of GWAR, Gojira, Protest the Hero, Powerglove, Alestorm, The Protomen, Last Chance to Reason, Dio Disciples, 3 Inches of Blood, and more! Plans to release a third album to continue their story are in the works for 2014. Make sure to see Dethlehem in a city near you! To the most METAL website on the face of the earth. A fitting tribute to the metal gods, the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT. Who are the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT? Hahaha...FOOL! You are not worthy to gaze upon their might! Their metal's so pure that only diamonds can scratch it, and usually the diamonds are the ones that end up getting hurt in the end. Their amps are so loud, Manowar knocked on their door and asked them to "please turn down". Don't let your girlfriends near LORDS OF THE TRIDENT, 'cause their music is guaranteed to make panties explode. You think you're bad? While you're watching their sweep picking wondering how they bend space-time to fit all the notes in, they'll punch you right in the face without missing a beat. ALL HAIL THE LORDS!
