Upcoming Shows: *UPDATED*

First and foremost, I am pleased to announce that CATTLE FREAKING DECAPITATION is coming to my humble hometown to play at The Locker Room on January tenth. That’s one way to start 2015 with a bang. The official line up inlcudes Carrion Kind, Fields Of Elysium, Yar, Impaled Offering and A Malicious Plague. Meanwhile, in Albuqurque, Launchpad will be hosting this show on December 18th. Show some love to Omingnome, touring from Georgia.  I’ve never … 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...

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...

Band Profile: Futilitarian

Posted by on Jun Mon, 2012 in Band Profile, Uncategorized | 0 comments

I’ve noticed that New Mexico has an obsession, almost bordering on a fetish, with Outer Space. Mayhaps it’s just because we have Roswell? I don’t know. Either way, our Metal scene was prototype Alien-core before Rings Of Saturn was a big deal. From the celestial tech-death of Fields Of Elysium to the  astronaut rappers of State Of The Mingo, we’re all a bunch of space cadets here. Hell, we even have a venue called Launchpad. … read...

Cheer Up, Emo Kid

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

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...

A Torrential Onslaught Of Music

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

I know I just posted flyers for upcoming shows, but there’s more concerts in summer than is humanly possible to actually attend. During my most recent excursion to Albu-tweakers, I noticed tons of Metal flyers posted on the neighboring venues. Jesus Christ, if you’re in New Mexico this month and somehow bored, you have to be deliberately trying not to have fun. Check this out, starting with The Sunshine Theater: At first I was skeptical about Born Of … read...

Concert Review: Slaughter Survivor Battle Of The Bands

Posted by on Jun Sun, 2012 in Concert Review | 0 comments

I feel like I was just hit by a semi-truck. I have a ringing in my ears, some new battle-scars, and incredible whiplash. At the risk of of sounding like a hyper teenager, this show was EPIC. Behold: Defleshment, hailing from Laguna, NM, are a force to be reckoned with. They kickstarted the entire concert with intensely brutal riffs and machine-gun drumming. It was fucking awesome. Thier performance was a taste of New Mexico Death Metal, … read...

Upcoming Shows

I’m still recovering from the aftershock of the most recent concerts, and already bracing myself for the next. If I’m not back within a week, avenge my death. Meanwhile, Futilitarian is looking at a busy week. 3 shows in 8 days is pretty intense. First they’ll be hitting Hooligans Nightclub in Albuqurque, along with 5 other Metal bands. Distances is fucking amazing, and like the Instru-Metal style of Futilitarian, they are trippy and ambient. Night Of Revenge is some … read...
