R.I.P. Jason McCash. The Gates Of Slumber was one of my favorite doom bands and a killer live show.
Destruction was in Edmonton the other night so I saw them which was badass. Hadn't listened to the supporting bands prior but two of them were pretty fucking great. One was sadly out of place slightly with the thrash bands but they were still decent. Snagged some vinyls from Mortillery and Exmortus while I was there.
One of the songs Destruction played. Fuck yes only have one more of the big three german thrash bands to see (Kreator).
Mortillery is a local band, hadn't heard of them before this show but they fucking wreck. Small as our scene is here compared to say Calgary, Vancouver or Toronto, this city has produced some pretty killer metal acts.
Exmortus is super tech thrash/death out of California. Holy shit are they good live. They did this same move at the show I was at. (about 4:16 if the video doesn't jump to it immediately).
Krisiun was the other band but I'm not so much a fan of straight up death.
Never really paid much attention to black metal, but yesterday I was playing some Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, so...
I've always loved this song. Maybe I should have a go at actually getting in to these guys.
R.I.P. The Ultimate "The Ultimate Warrior" Warrior
I find it weird how sometimes I really enjoy stuff that's very influenced by stuff I really don't at all. The influence of Meshuggah here is undeniable, but I find this so much more interesting.
I saw Meshuggah live a few years back because I wanted to see one of the opening bands. I've known about them for ages but this was the first time I actually listened to them. I understand that they're very influential but they bored me to tears. Went home before their set even ended.
I actually prefer this to the album version. DAT BASS.
