Event description
METALWAVE! The brainchild of JAMES RIVERA, legendary vocalist and front man of HELSTAR !

About this event

As fear turned upon the world from the gathering storm of pandemics and social upheaval, a lightning from the dark struck upon the earth a shimmering blast of inspiration… The sounds of New Wave, Dark Wave, and Goth…delivered through the grinding sonic jaws of heavy metal! ... from the cauldron of chaos, was brought forth… METALWAVE! METALWAVE! The brainchild of JAMES RIVERA, legendary vocalist and front man of HELSTAR and other successful international recording acts; and, also known for his trailblazing tribute bands including the world renown Sabbath Judas Sabbath. Having had his share of saluting the metal icons through his tribute bands, JAMES RIVERA felt it time for something new, fresh, and innovative. The call came in a wave of inspiration set to dazzle and intrigue all music fans from the sin decade…the 1980s! For JAMES RIVERA, metal music is a love, a passion and a way of life. However, less known is his passion for 80's NEW WAVE/DARKWAVE and GOTH. Knowing that the styles and image of DARK WAVE and GOTH ran parallels with heavy metal, JAMES RIVERA realized that people who love 80's Metal also love 80's New Wave. In this moment he foresaw this inevitable musical union…a union that will take Generation X back to a time when all music genres were great; and would later become timeless. Metal warriors are united, are many, and strong; and so, JAMES RIVERA turned to metal comrades that could make the METALWAVE! vision rise from the depths of the undead: Long time HELSTAR bandmates Larry Barragan and Garrick Smith joined the METALWAVE! Jan Kimmel, Maurice Eggenswiler and Britt Harris rounded out the dark transformation. METALWAVE! will take you back as never before. With dark, epic, euphoric, and mesmerizing renditions of DEPECHE MODE, THE CURE, PSYCHEDELIC FURS, THE FIXX, PETER MURPHY/BAUHAUS, MORRISSEY/THE SMITHS, SISTERS OF MERCY, THE CHURCH, ECHO AND THE BUNNY MEN, SIMPLE MINDS, SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES, INXS…renditions cut with the razor’s edge of heavy metal. For those who love 80's NEW WAVE and/or 80's METAL, stand in the light of the darkness and testify…your time is at hand! Ladies and gentlemen! Please welcome a new genre! METALWAVE!
