This past month Korn invaded Boston's House of Blues celebrating the twentieth reunion of their self-titled album, Korn. After a two decade-long wait, fans of the band got to hear the album front-to-back in its entirety, including rarely heard live deep tracks such as "Lies," "Fake," and "Divine." Fans of the band got more than they bargained for when Korn brought along Suicide Silence and Islander to get things started. Suicide Silence was sporting favorites from their latest album, You Can't Stop Me. You can watch our backstage interview with Suicide Silence frontman, Eddie Hermida, on HeadRush TV at this link. As typical fashion for Korn, the Nu-Metallers turned Hard Rockers brought the heat when it came to jamming old tracks, helping fans in the pit Party Like It's 1999 at the Worcester Palladium.

HeadRush TV recently caught up with Hollywood Undead backstage at the House of Blues when they invaded Boston with special guests Crown The Empire and I Prevail. The band spoke to their latest album Day of the Dead, signing with Interscope Records, the inspiration behind their new masks, along with some hilarious stories from the road.
This past Monday, Boston's House of Blues was packed to capacity in cult like fashion for the Swedish rockers in Ghost. While Ghost may not be a household name, their original blend of melodic and theatric rock is held sacred by the band's fans. Ghost, led by Papa Emeritus III and his accompanying Ghouls were sporting tunes from their latest album, Meliora, which leads Sirius XM radio waves with singles like, "Cirice," "From the Pinnacle to the Pit," and "Majesty." While Ghost's popularity is on the rise, their live show has earned them a reputation; even sharing the stage with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold and Deftones.
After the psychedelic opening set from UK act Purson, Ghost made their eerie presence known with an epic rendition of Meliora's opening track "Spirit." The packed venue of hard-rocking Bostonians responded with vigor and emotion as Ghost continued to guide the crowd through a sermon of favorites like "Year Zero," "If You have Ghosts," "Absolution," and "Monstrance Clock." Ghost has had a contagious effect amongst their die hard group of fans, if you haven't given them a listen, it may be time.
