A Benefit Show for Atlanta Cancer Patients - featuring DEATH ANGEL, HALCYON WAY, and more!
The 3rd Annual Metal Against Cancer Benefit Show has been confirmed for February 28th, 2015 at the 120 Tavern & Music Hall in Marietta, GA.
Headlined this year by Bay Area Thrash legends DEATH ANGEL, along with direct support from Atlanta’s own HALCYON WAY, the event will raise proceeds for the Atlanta Cancer Care Foundation. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that donates all of its funds to cancer patients who have financial hardship during the course of their treatment.
Examples of how the funds have been used are to pay a patient’s rent when they lost their job due to their illness, paying for auto repairs or other unexpected costs, paying for health insurance, and the like.
Death Angel’s latest album, “The Dream Calls For Blood” was released in October of 2013 and landed at #72 on the Billboard top 200. Halcyon Way’s latest CD “Conquer” was released in August of 2014 and landed at #41 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart.
HALCYON WAY guitarist and promoter Jon Bodan said “As a cancer survivor, I saw firsthand how the cost of treatment and the inability to work during that time can affect a family, so I’m very excited to be able to give back a little bit by putting on this event. Now that Death Angel have signed on for this year’s show, it’s going to be better than ever and a good time for all, for a good cause.”
The full event lineup is as follows:
General Admission, as well as VIP tickets with a Meet & Greet, are available.

All proceeds from the show will go to the foundation.

We can’t wait to unleash some of these new songs on you guys live."

'Conquer' Release dates and artwork!
Conquer Available August 19th in North America on Nightmare Records And August 23rd in Europe via Massacre Records
Award Winning Atlanta, Georgia Progressive Metallers HALCYON WAY have confirmed an August 19th North American release date and an August 23rd European release date for their new album Conquer. The album will be released on Nightmare Records in North America and via Massacre Records in Europe. Today the artwork and track listing for Conquer have been unveiled.
Singer Steve Braun commented on the new album:
"We are super stoked about how this entire album has come out, from music down to the artwork. Once again our good friend Travis Smith has taken our basic artwork concept and made it into a masterpiece. The artwork visually shows the struggles we as a band have faced and how it could have destroyed us, yet at the same time shows how we've emerged from the rubble as a solid unit ready to conquer ANY obstacle in our way. For us we raised the bar with Building the Towers back in 2010, and with the new album Conquer we've surpassed our wildest dreams."
A video for the song “Web of Lies” from the new album can be viewed below.
HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album "A Manifesto For Domination" in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).
HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature song craft. The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira. The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King’s X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.
Conquer Track Listing:
2. Web Of Lies
3. Conceived In Torment
5. World Comes Undone
7. Hatred Is My Cause
8. The Poisoned Apple
9. Save Your Tears
10. Every Second Counts (USA Bonus Track)
11. King Of Ruin
12. Eviscerate The Morning Sun

HW signs management deal with IntroMental Worldwide
Intromental Worldwide is proud to have signed Atlanta, GA metal band and Nightmare Records recording artist Halcyon Way for worldwide booking and management representation.
"Throughout the past bunch of years we've become more and more aware that something special was brewing down in the home of Coca-Cola, and when Halcyon Way sent us their new material, we were literally blown away," says managing director Claus Jensen. "We've been looking for a band capable of combining powerful and semi-technical metal, a healthy dose of thrash metal riffs, and a strong sense of melodic song writing - Halcyon Way delivers!"
Halcyon Way guitarist Jon Bodan adds: "We're very excited about this new partnership with Intromental, and we think they're just the guys to help take our band to the next level. The new album is a beast and this will help us get it heard by as many as possible."
Halcyon Way are preparing to release their sophomore album "Building The Towers" later this summer via Nightmare Records in the US. The album was recorded with Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Svartsot) and features not only the band's fantastic new singer Steve Braun, but also a beautiful guest performance by Pamela Moore of Queensryche's "Operation:Mindcrime" fame. The artwork for "Building The Towers" was created by none other than Travis Smith (known for his work on Opeth, Nevermore, Overkill and much more).
Building the Towers' artwork by Travis Smith revealed!!
Nightmare Records recording artist Halcyon Way have unveiled the art for their sophomore release, "Building The Towers". The design was handled by the legendary Travis Smith, known for his work with Opeth, Nevermore, Avenged Sevenfold, Overkill, and many others. The album is due for worldwide release late Summer 2010, and the release date will be announced in the coming days. Two advance tracks from the album can be heard on the band's MySpace page.
"We couldn't be happier with the way the art for Building The Towers is coming out - Travis has really outdone himself for us, and we can't wait to get the CD in your hands," said guitarist Zane Matthews. "Not only is the art incredibly impressive, but the songwriting, production, and performances on this album are all a huge step up from Manifesto."
