Don’t miss Ministry taking the Worcester Palladium stage with Death Grips on Friday, October 13th headlining the first day of Rock And Shock.
More frightening than the Great Pumpkin, heavier than Santa Claus and keeping better time than Baby New Year, the multi-headed, extra-limbed, ever evolving beast known as The Rocking Dead is rising once again from the underworld this October. Unlike its above mentioned brethren of once a year appearances, though, The Rocking Dead is not for kids. Helmed by the axe wielding maniac of Faster Pussycat and The Throbs fame, Ace Von Johnson, this year’s demon band will also contain six string slasher Ashes (DevilDriver, Static X), vocal hypnotists Riki Rachtman (Headbanger’s Ball, the Cathouse) and Brett Von Dehl (Heathens, The Relapse Symphony), the thunderclap bass of Acey Slade (Joan Jett, Murderdolls), the concussive percussion of Kriz DK (Genitorturers, Deadstar Assembly), and the vampiric charms of saxophonist Tim Cappello (The Lost Boys, Ringo Starr’s Allstarrs). The Rocking Dead cannot be tamed, and will only return to the depths once they have completed their set of fast and ferocious covers. The only ones safe from their wrath will be those in attendance at the Palladium on Saturday, October 14th to take in their tribute to their elders. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
