Decibel Magazine Tour: Abbath, High on Fire, Skeletonwitch, Tribulation April 02, 2016 Vancouver, BC at the Commodore Ballroom Featuring a decidedly less eclectic lineup than last year’s iteration of the tour, this year’s instalment was by no means stagnant.

Text & Photos: Milton Stille Anciients/Black Wizard tour kickoff, the Biltmore, Vancouver BC, June 17 2014 This is what I’d consider a perfectly paced show. It’s always nice when the bill is put together in such a way that all the artists complement one another perfectly, and this evening was
