Overdrive can confirm that Cranium Titanium Metal Show in association with Black Box Booking Agency, will host a crushing night of metal in Galway’s Cellar Bar on May 19th, featuring American progressive four-piece OF VIRTUE! Get the details below.


OF VIRTUE will be playing their sophomore Irish performance in Galway’s Cellar Bar, Eglington St. on Friday, May 19th. Admission is only €5.00, with tickets available from the door on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Doors are scheduled for 8 PM sharp, so get there early to avoid disappointment.

Hailing from Lansing, Michigan, U.S.A, Of Virtue set the standards in the field of powerful, progressive, melodic modern metal and metalcore. Their energetic performances have been winning over fans of all genres and continue to do so throughout the years earning them a healthy and impressive selection of support slots with metal heavyweights such as Everytime I Die and The Acacia Strain, to name but a few.

This May 18th finally sees the band’s first ever Irish performance take place in Cork, before heading west to Galway and finishing in Belfast. Click on the bands official Facebook page here, for details on all shows.

Joining the guys for their Galway date on May 19th are Dundalk based alt-metal rising artists, ‘Words That Burn’ who recently launched their rather excellent video for ‘Mirror Perfect Mannequin‘ right here on Overdrive.

Recently signed to Warner Chappell publishing, Words That Burn released the blistering full-length “Regret Is For The Dead”, which wowed critics and fans alike sending the album straight to number one in the officiaiTuneses mainstream charts.

We’re not done yet! The mighty Negativ Result will be performing their first show of 2017. Having made a name for themselves, not only locally, but nationally as a force to be reckoned with, the very foundations of The Cellar Bar will be under threat from their thunderous riffs and even heavier grooves. Not to be missed!

Having recently taken part in the 2017 Bloodstock, Metal 2 The Masses Irish showcase, the Dublin-based contemporary metal band will be making their Galway debut on May 19th as they open the proceedings for the evening. Get down early and catch them in action!
