MMM Presents: ST. VITUS (USA) + TOMBSTONES (Norway)


Saint Vitus are a highly influential American doom metal band from Los Angeles. They have been regarded as one of the first bands of the genre, starting out as early as the late 1970s, along with Pentagram and Trouble. For most of their career, the band comprised vocalist Scott Weinrich, bassist Mark Adams, guitarist Dave Chandler and drummer Armando Acosta. After breaking up in 1996, Saint Vitus briefly reunited for a tour in 2003, and are back together again as of 2008. The band was formed in 1979 under the name Tyrant, with Scott Reagers (vocals), Dave Chandler (guitar), Mark Adams (bass), and Armando Acosta (drums), but soon changed their name to Saint Vitus after the song “St. Vitus’ Dance” by Black Sabbath. Their main influences were Sabbath and Black Flag, the latter of which Saint Vitus toured with during the 1980’s. Under this line-up, Saint Vitus recorded 2 albums (Saint Vitus & Hallow’s Victim) and an EP (The Walking Dead). After The Walking Dead Reagers left the band and was replaced by The Obsessed frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich (at this time, The Obsessed had only released one 7″).Wino recorded three studio albums (Born Too Late, Mournful Cries & V), a live album (Live), and an EP (Thirsty and Miserable, featuring the Black Flag cover of the same name) with Vitus. Weinrich left Saint Vitus in 1991 to reform The Obsessed after Vitus’s label, Hellhound Records, released an album of older Obsessed recordings.
Following Weinrich’s departure, Saint Vitus went on hiatus. The band finally found former Count Raven singer Christian Lindersson as Weinrich’s replacement. He would record only one album, C.O.D. before being replaced by original Vitus vocalist, Scott Reagers. Reagers recorded vocals for the band’s final album, Die Healing. After this, Saint Vitus decided to call it a day in 1996.
As of 2008, Saint Vitus have reformed again. The band headlined for Friday’s April 24 date at the 2009 Roadburn Festival.[2] The 14th annual Roadburn Festival will take place April 23-26, 2009 and will be held at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Netherlands. The lineup for this reunion was the same as the 2003 reunion. Sadly Armando Acosta passed away from ongoing health issues soon after. Saint Vitus moved forward with heavy hitter Henry Vasquez joining the band as drummer for a headlining main stage performance at Hellfest in France and has sat behind the drum kit ever since. As of this moment the band is touring again with original singer Scott Reagers and that was for MMM the mean reason to book the band!

TOMBSTONES has taken up on their Norse heritage, evolving from their previous stoner-influenced sound, now descending into the dark side of the gloom. “Vargariis” finds the band leaning towards the bleak and desperate, assaulting the listener with their blackened, thunderous wall of fuzz and despair. Years of intensive touring alongside bands such as Eyehategod, Church of Misery, Egypt and Witch Mountain amonsgt others, have kept the band active. The result unveils in the energy and live presence felt on “Vargariis”. Over the last years, Tombstones has appeared on legendary festivals as Roadburn, Psycho Las Vegas. Freak Valley Festival, Doom Over Leipzig, Into the Void, Desertfest++
