Conquerors Of The World

   Holy shit, just look at that sexy lineup. If you missed the show in Albuqurque on the 11th (or anywhere else they already played), sucks to be you. Here’s what happened during their performance at Blackwater Music. Endless Infection, from Albuqurque,  opened the show with blackened death metal.  The drums and riffs persisted at breakneck speed, accompanied by nasty, heavy growls. Their overall sound was primally aggressive yet complex, setting the standard for the … read...

Intronaut Concert Review

Intronaut Concert Review

  Metal is described as many things, but seldom as serene. Prog Metal line ups such as this defy preconcieved notions of the genre while still remaining TRVE and heavy. Nationally renowned bands Intronaut and Scale The Summit headlined this show, but it was immaculate from start to finish. In the beginning…. Distances of Albuqurque NM is defined by a dichotomy of overwhelming heaviness with intense beauty. You know those pictures of outerspace, where the … read...

Concert Review: Metal At Warehouse 21

Unfortunately, Anomaly broke down and were unable to make it to this gig. Those of us who just had to see them got a second chance tonight at Hooligan’s Nightclub in Albuqurque. Anyway, the incredibly talented Savage Wizdom took their place at the last minute, and drew in a huge audience of loyal fans. The night was started off by Exalt, who play a fusion of Hip-Hop and Metal. Their musical style is in the … read...

Rise From The Ashes Of Disbelief

Posted by on Apr Tue, 2013 in Concert Review | 0 comments

I’m not a slacker. To the contrary, I got two jobs, and therefore have very little time to write on my precious, precious blog. Also, I don’t even own my own computer. And typing entire articles on a smart-phone is a pain in the ass. Enough of my excuses, let’s talk abut Metal. First of all, I’m going to throw a tantrum because I should be at this show as we speak. But my job  … read...

Last Minute Update

So… You may or may not remember my chemically altered post from 2 am last night (this morning?). Regardless, there is a change in today’s concert. See this flyer? It’s a liar.  Unfortunately, the Victory Heights comeback show is going to be sans- Victory Heights. I know, that’s retarded. On the plus side, The Untold Hour are going to be replacing them. For some reason, they don’t have any music online, but apparently their influences … read...

Rave, Reggae, Rock

Posted by on Jun Sat, 2012 in Electronica, Upcoming Shows | 0 comments

This post is named after a shirt I got from the mall in high school. I think it was from like, Claire’s or Hot Topic or some equally corny establishment. It just said “Rave Reggae Rock” in neon colors on a cool tank top.  Anyway, I just got back from a Rave at the very decent hour of 2:18 AM.  It was pretty cool, but I felt self conscious because I thought I looked like … read...

A Blessing With A Curse

Posted by on Jun Sat, 2012 in Upcoming Shows | 0 comments

I was kind of bummed out because my posts are half-assed and lame, so I was worried about what to write today. Then I realized I could just post more flyers and call it a day. Tonight W21 is hosting the annual Get Awesome Fest, aptly titled because it’s FREE and features tons of bands from different genres. I don’t recognize any Metal bands in the line up. However, I know that HN-88 is a flashback … read...

Upcoming Shows

Posted by on Feb Fri, 2012 in Upcoming Shows | 0 comments

Warehouse 21, the best all-ages venue in Santa Fe, will be hosting a kick-ass Metal show on Saturday, featuring local legends Savage Wizdom and Grinkai, as well as the Albuqurque death-metallers Echoes Of Fallen and the talented Burst Into Flames hailing from Edgewood. Just because it’s an all-ages event, don’t think the place will be swarming with bratty kids. Old-school heshers frequent such concerts, and in fact the only difference is that alcohol is strictly … read...

National Metal Day

Posted by on Nov Sat, 2011 in Concert Review | 0 comments

     As VH1 so eloquently put it, themselves alluding to Spinal Tap, this goes one louder. 11/11/11 is National Metal Day, which by divine providence, has been granted to us on a Friday. If your local scene is as awesome as mine, then a venue/radio station/studio near you has the good grace to organize the sickest line ups on this most (un)holy of days. Return the favor; go to as many concerts as humanly possible … read...
