Upcoming Shows: March 2017

While we have a few more weeks of winter to blast our black metal and think about cold frost and infinite darkness, the spring thaw will soon be upon us. Many bands are coming out of the woodworks to go on tour. Here are some notable shows coming to the Santa Fe/ Albuqurque area: The Armory is one of the most badass and authentic metal venues in Albuqurque. This show features local badasses, Left To … 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...

Ha! What a great flyer. At long last, As In We are back to play at 2nd Street Brewery on New Years Eve. (Note that this is the original  brewery which is actually located on 2nd Street.) Doors open at 10 pm, music starts around 11. Oh, and Also, it’s FREE! Only things to keep in mind are to tip your bartender, buy some merch, and don’t drive drunk. On Jan 7 2015, Hanta will … read...

Recent Concerts: Reliving The Memories

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

Have I mentioned that it’s a pain in the ass to type up reviews on a smart phone? It warrants repeating, regardless. This sucks. But on the bright side, I’ve been so swamped with awesome metal shows that my ears are still ringing. Anyway, here’s what went down recently:   Much like Dante was unable to express the beauty of heaven in his Paradiso, despite the fact that he’s a fuckin’ famous poet, I can not … 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...

Let’s Try This Again

Posted by on Jun Tue, 2012 in Death Metal | 0 comments

Last post was super-false, but my computer bit the dust, so I had to use an ancient monstrosity that runs slower than hell. Anyway, now that my horrible incident of terror is over, I can bring you a (slightly) higher quality of writing. It’s still going to consist entirely of random stuff I should have said a long time ago, and in a more aesthetically articulate manner, but I’m too fat, lonely, and poor to care. First of … read...

Cheer Up, Emo Kid

I missed the Gaza show, due to the clusterfuck that passes as “Public Transportation” in New Mexico. Being stranded in the sketchy side of one of the most Meth-saturated cities in the country is pretty Metal, but it’s also pretty fucked up. So I cut my losses and drank an ungodly amount of Absinthe while listening to their stuff on Myspace. However, I am severely dissappointed that I didn’t get their autographs. I saved my  … read...

Concert Review: Metal Alliance 2012

Posted by on Apr Thu, 2012 in Concert Review | 0 comments

Well, fuck. It’s been a rowdy ass weekend frought with mayhem and debauchery. Warehouse 21 hosted yet another Metal show on Saturday, but more about that later. Today, I’m going to focus on the craziness that was the Metal Alliance tour. First of all, it came to my neck of the woods on Easter Sunday. The Holy Day is a pretty weird time to do anything, let alone have a freaking Death Metal Concert. And on Zombie … read...
