Concert Review: Haunted And Damaged Tour at The Underground

The Underground at Evangelo’s is always an excellent venue for louder-than-life, heavy metal mayhem. Touring bands All Hail The Yeti and Final Drive were right at home with local shredders Carrion Kind. Here is historical evidence of the badassery, documented for posterity. Carrion Kind opened up with their killer masterpiece, Memoirs Of A Lost Civilization.   Many other songs from their debut album, The Collapse Of All To Come, have catchy death metal chord progressions that … read...

Concert Review: Metal Monday At The Underground

While respectable members of society are loosening their ties and resting before another workday, the metalheads come to Evangelo’s to play. What mischief and mayhem transpires on such a night? Here’s a brief recap: Carrion Kind were a fantastic opening act. With it’s insanely catchy guitar riff, Memoirs Of A Lost Civilization is inevitably the first in their setlist, and until recently was the strongest in their arsenal.  But hark, what noise through yonder speaker … read...

Cattle Decapitation: Concert Review

I’ve been anticipating this  concert ever since it was announced. Now that I have experienced Cattle Decapitation in their full glory, I am blown away. Although my neck will be hurting for the next week, and some of my comrades left the venue bruised and bloody, it was totally worth the pain. Here’s why: A Malicious Plague were the opening band. One song would emphasize shredding guitar solos, the next would highlight the noodling bass … read...

Album Review: Carrion Kind – The Collapse Of All To Come

The Collapse Of All To Come is the first album released by Santa Fe death metal band, Carrion Kind.  More rhythmic than melodic, there is an underlying groove to the music, reminiscent of Sepultura and Pantera. Thrashy death metal riffs and raging solos overlap with the thunderous percussion. Morbid lyrics are brought to life with Jayson Grace’s gutteral vocals. The subject matter revolves around dark themes such as the self-destructive nature of humanity, and mass … read...

Hell In July *Updated*

  Hell In July is the  aptly named national tour featuring Six Feet Under, Decrepit Birth, and Cannabis Corpse. *UPDATE*  The show made headline news, and here’s a link to the article. The show got off to a good start with Oscillation. The vocals are uber-deep growls, and occasionally reverb with an effect that resembles Autopsy’s sound. The guitars and bass are aggressive and catchy in the vein of the Deathcore genre. This band is comprised … read...

First and foremost, I must unveil the glory that is the Despise The World 2013 lineup. This is so good it has to be fattening.  The astronomically talented Fields Of Elysium from Santa Fe, New Mexico bring on the Jazzcore/Tech-Death with a vengeance. Admiron is some kind of unholy beast wrought from the forges of Thrash, Industrial, and Metalcore. Rings Of Saturn are painstakingly intricate, alarmingly fast Tech-Death group, also known as the innovaters of … 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...
