Friday June 29th will mark the one-night return of Denver speed metal legends Speedwolf as the group reunites for their first show in over four years with a headlining slot at 3 Kings. There may be no band in recent memory that’s achieved the cult status in Denver that Speedwolf has, and a raucous in-your-face performance inside 3 Kings will surely invoke wild memories (or forgotten ones) of infamous Speedwolf appearances of yore. Friday’s support spans from the soaring dual harmonies of 2017 MVPs Spirit Adrift, crushing Iowa doom trio Aseethe, the unmatched ‘70s blues-boogie of Amplified Heat, Portland’s self-proclaimed street doom merchants R.I.P. and many more.

The top slot Saturday June 30th will see the aggressive stoner metal onslaught of Wilmington NC’s Weedeater. Driven by the gutteral growl and enthralling stage energy of bassist/vocalist Dave “Dixie” Collins, NC’s manic sons are poised to lift the crowd a bit higher than usual. The meat of the Day 2 lineup matches the versatility of Day 1, including the misanthropic punishment of Primitive Man, Duel’s high-flying proto-metal roar, the manic blues attack of The Midnight Ghost Train, Opoponax records sleepers Grey Gallows and many more.

Electric Funeral is Denver’s premiere heavy music festival, built as a bridge between one of North America’s most powerful and vibrant cities for heavy music and the legions of bands and fans who visit the Mile High City each year. Electric Funeral, an event run and produced by musicians, stands as the antithesis to corporate driven rock festivals. Founded as a beacon for the Denver scene, EFF 2018 ramps the spotlight up a little brighter this year, showcasing over 15 bands from Denver, including a few behemoths holding down headlining and top support slots.

Venues: Hi Dive (21+), 3 Kings Tavern (21+), Mutiny Information Cafe (all ages)

North Hammer premiere a new song titled “Avatar”, taken from their upcoming debut album “Stormcaller”, which is due out on March 16, and will be available through all major online retailers.

Check out now “Avatar” below.

Explains North Hammer:

“‘Avatar‘ is a manifestation of a deity or released soul in bodily form on Earth; an incarnate divine teacher. This is the definition that I thought fit well for this song. This song is about battling the elements of scaling a giant mountain during blizzards and furious winds. The teacher and deity aspect of the hero shines through as he preserves and inspires others beyond their capacity.”

In an interview with TheMetalTris, The Faceless mainman Michael Keene comes clean on his struggles with drug addiction. Speaking of the lyrics on the band’s latest effort, “In Becoming A Ghost“, he explains:

“I obviously was in a pretty dark place when I was writing lyrics… I am a recovering drug addict, and a lot of [the lyrics are] about drugs. I had a few rough years… [writing the lyrics] was a very cathartic process, I think. I needed to get it out. I think I needed to verbalize what was going on in my head and all the mess in my head, and actually verbalizing it made it real to me, and I realized, ‘Okay, I can lock this away here and move forward.’””
