The Nausea, Taskmaster, Primitive Isolation Tactics, Munition
Date: Friday March 15th, 2019
Venue: LOLA in Toronto, Ontario

The first act “Munition” was a noise act. Distorted wind with a few drumbeats. It was okay when the distortion got amped up a bit midway through his set.

The next guy called Primitive Isolation Tactics was moar distorted wind. It was much harsher and cooler but it was still just distorted wind for fifteen minutes.

The next girl went by “Taskmaster”. She started out with some nice violins, and then segued into moar distorterd wind. She was pretty cool.

The last guy was called the Nausea and he was moar distorted wind noise.

So it was a night of distorted wind. The venue was pretty memorable. It was a really small crust bar that catered to the homeless. I’d go back. But my favourite bar was just down the road and I had to head there afterwards for a bit to cleanse my palette.

Crimson Shadows, Blackguard, Borealis, Lutharo
Date: Friday March 22nd, 2019
Venue: Coalition in Toronto, Ontario

I went to this show for the Metalsetlists alumni.

I forgot that I’d seen Lutharo before. I’ve seen so many bands now that their name on the poster didn’t even ring any bells for me. They’re pretty good at the whole Arch Enemy, female fronted melodic death metal thing. Not my cup of tea but good for them. They tend to do a bit too much posturing for the cameras and the crowd.

Borealis were really not my thing at all. They were good at what they do but they were way too uplifting for my liking. I prefer to be spat on and called a dirty pirate hooker.

Ah, Blackguard. 2011’s memiest band. I only saw them live twice in their heyday but I think both times were within five months of one another. They weren’t bad live but their one album I have is crap. But I digress: THEY’RE BACK, BABY! It took them fucking forever to set up. Hey Blackguard, you’re playing some dive bar, not opening for Nevermore! Their singer has (thankfully) shaved his head. They were a lot less “pirate” than they used to me. They sounded like every other band rather than sounding like every other pirate metal band. They had lots of energy and they crowd was rabid for them. It’s probably the biggest crowd and the craziest show I’ve seen at Coalition. But they didn’t play This Round’s on Me. Fucking blasphemy.

Crimson Shadows actually weren’t bad at all. Their sound got a little same-y towards the end of their set to me but every other band tonight sucked so much more that they won out. I’d see them again if they’re at a show I’m going to but I wouldn’t go to a show with the sole intent of seeing them.

This show fucking sucked. I went for you guys. And it’s still fun going out. It beats sitting in my basement drinking by myself.

Mutank, Ammo, Black Absinthe, Snake River Redemption, Death Perception
Date: Saturday March 23rd, 2019
Venue: Coalition in Toronto, Ontario

Tonight was awesome. Forget whatever “Six Paragraphs Down Adam” says.

Death Perception are a band I saw last year and kinda remembered their name from the poster. They played some pretty nice metalcore. Their bass player was insane. But their one guitarists tone was really terrible.

Snake River whatever were tons of fun because they were so fucking hilariously drunk, especially their guitar player. Their banter was better than their songs. Their songs were good but they played way too long. Forty-five minutes of High on Fire worship is a bit too much for me.

Black Absinthe was pretty bad but the booze made them fun. They’re bassist was pretty cute and had awesome hair. They were filming parts of their set for a music video. So if you see some guy in an Impetuous Ritual shirt with an indifferent look on his face standing off to the side of the stage in their video THAT’S ME!

Ammo were total cheese metal but they were so much fun it didn’t matter. Ya-ya-ya. They fucking sucked but were awesome at the same time.

Mutank were even worse but the night was so lit and they were fun.

This show fucking sucked but I had lots of fun. That’s all that mattered about this show. The bands all played way too long and the show didn’t end until way passed 2am but it was one of those nights where I just left with a smile on my face. Coalition is closing within a month or two and I went there twice this weekend. Then I watched some super Eurotrash horror movies from the 1970’s and 1980’s (Pieces, the Devils Nightmare and Burial Ground). It was a great weekend.

Re: Rock/Metal Discussion Thread

Spoiler for show poster:


Sophie Trudeau + Michaela Grill
Support: Loom
Date: Sunday March 31st, 2019
Venue: the Array Space in Toronto, Ontario

Loom were a sort of shoe gaze act, very similar to Mazzy Star in sound and pace. They were good in the middle of their set but the beginning and end weren’t that great. The lead was really nervous and made quite a few mistakes.

Sophie Trudeau (violinist of Godspeed You! Black Emperor) + Michaela Grill were incredible. Mostly it was Sophie who carried the show, playing improvised loops to Michaela’s distorted film loops of animals. The film loops probably took a bit of work to produce but live really only amounts to hitting “play” on a laptop. They were awesome though. Like I said though, the music was the highlight. But the performance was way too short. I could sit through hours of that. As of today it’s my performance of the year.

The whole show was too short. It was over in less than ninety minutes. Oh well.

Enzo Amore in the new All that Remains video.

I don't care about whatever personal political beliefs or issues with medical or mental stuff these artists have going on, or new sexual misconduct; i only listen to bands for the music. And All That Remains have never failed me. One of the best small venue shows in NYC I've seen past 5 years.

Re: Rock/Metal Discussion Thread

Wake, Holy Grinder, Lilim, Avon Dealer, Toxocariasis, Alternative Facts
Date: Friday April 5th, 2019
Venue: the Bovine Sex Club in Toronto, Ontario

Alternative Facts were a joke old-school punk band. They certainly were terrible. Their name may or may not have been “Alternative Facts”. Their singer mentioned that the used to have a different name and were now Alternative Facts, or they used to be Alternative Facts and now go by a different name. It doesn’t matter.

I saw Toxocariasis twice last year and at best they sucked both times. But the guitar player just plays guitar now (and leaves his shirt on, thank God) and they have another guy doing vocals. Plus, he used a pitch-shifter their entire set. So they were some awesome pornogrind this time.

Avon Dealer were pretty good and pretty funny. Any time I’ve seen them (or G.O.D., which has most of the same members) their banter is better than their songs. I felt like shit when I saw their drummer and remembered I ate six pieces of pizza last night. Dude was built like Harms Ways singer. Speaking of pieces; they had a song called Pieces, named after a video nasty I watched a couple of weekends ago about some dude who cuts up college students and uses pieces of them to make his perfect woman. I also like them because they're from my hometown and have a song about a comic book store I used to go to there.

Lilim were okay but they had some serious gear issues (broken kickdrum, blow bass rig). They almost gave up but they soldiered on. Their singer scares me.

Holy Grinder were a lot better than the other five billion times I’ve seen them. They have a second bass player now and the girl does less vocals. It was the best time I’ve seen them and unlike other times I’ve seen them when I said to myself I would avoid shows where they were playing this time I said I’d see them again.

Wake were really loud and a lot of their set was just distorted white noise but they were cool. It was good distorted white noise.

This was a lot better a show than I expected. I saw all the bands except Alternative Facts multiple times last year so my expectations were really low. I wasn’t even sure why I went. But all the bands were way better tonight than all the times I saw any of them last year. I think the sound was just a lot better than usual tonight. Six bands is a lot but Alternative Facts, Toxocariasis and Holy Grinder played for maybe twenty-five minutes combined. Overall there was more time spent at this show waiting around for the bands to play than the bands playing but I don’t care.

Then I went and got some poutine.

Xero Tolerance (as Type O Negative), the Electric Dead
Date: Friday April 12th, 2019
Venue: Cherry Colas Rock’N’Rolla Cabaret in Toronto, Ontario
T-shirt worn: WERE-FUCKING-GOAT

It seems to be an annual thing of Xero Tolerance doing a show the weekend the anniversary of Peter Steele’s death. They’re terrible (Xero Tolerance) but I’m going to go as long as they do it out of respect for Peter. I can’t believe it’s been nine years.

The Electric Dead sounded like the Misfits. In fact, I think all the members play in this Misfits cover band I’ve seen called “the Shitfits”. Sad thing is the Electric Dead sound like post-2000 Misfits with Jerry Only singing, not “good” Misfits. They sucked. So much. Even the one girl slut-dancing to them or their cover of Halloween (by the Misfits) couldn’t save this seemingly five-hour performance.

Xero Tolerance was both better and worse than usual. Their keyboard player wasn’t as brutally off time or key as normal. But their usual bass player (who holds the band together) wasn’t able to do the show and the fill-in was...filly. And the guitar player brutalized the solo to Blood & Fire. He did terrible on a lot of the guitar parts. God this band sucks. I was glad they did some different songs and they were better than the Kyuss cover band I saw last weekend. But me and my friend Evan could still do better with a kazoo and a Casio keyboard.

Xero Tolerance
1. Der Untermensch (“Waste of Life” intro)
2. Love You to Death
3. Jesus Hitler/Kill All the White People
4. Christian Woman
5. Blood & Fire
6. Are You Afraid?/Gravitational Constant: G = 6.67 x 10-8 cm-3 gm-1 sec-2/Xero Tolerance
7. Wolf Moon
8. Bloody Kisses/I Don’t Wanna Be Me
9. Black No.1/ Unsuccessfully Coping With The Natural Beauty Of Infidelity
10. My Girlfriends Girlfriend

This show was TERRIBLE. I wore my Weregoat shirt for nothing.

Re: Rock/Metal Discussion Thread

Got done listening to Within Temptation's latest album, Resist. I was a fan of their The Silent Force era but then I stopped following that sort of music. However, they have completely revamped their sound on this one, going in a more electronic/space rock-metal direction. Sharon's voice still sounds awesome and I like her change of style on a couple of songs here, even singing at a more faster pace. Some tracks are very catchy, love the guitars on this one especially when the guitar solos kick in to add something new to the track and the synths are utilized really well throughout and at the right time. Also, I have to say I really enjoyed the guest features on this one, all of them were excellent and added something fresh to the songs.

Best tracks for me are The Reckoning, Supernova, Holy Ground, In Vain, Firelight and Mad World. I also dug Endless War, Raise Your Banner and Mercy Mirror. Trophy Hunter felt like the weakest song for me despite still being pretty good but I'd have to listen to it again as I did like the ending to the closing track. I'd give the album overall an 8/10.

Check out Supernova below:

Rowan and Viktor Byke! Part Two of the Bezerker series.



If I don't go to Puerto Rico that month, I may finally be able to check these guys out. I think At The Gates are opening for them in the fall. Long ways for now, but I always plan my shows way in advance.

Re: Rock/Metal Discussion Thread

Arkhon Infaustus, Gevurah, Phobocosm, Into Oblivion
Date: Thursday April 18th, 2019
Venue: the Smiling Buddha in Toronto, Ontario

I’ve seen Into Oblivion before and they’re pretty terrible. Mainly because their songs are all, like, seventeen minutes long and they have maybe two minutes of cool in them. I went downstairs to the bathroom and they sounded better from there.

Phobocosm are a name I’m familiar with but I don’t think I’ve ever even listened to them. Holy shit were they ever awesome. Brutal, guttural wall-of-noise death metal. They were far and away the best band tonight.

I saw Gevurah a few years ago and they were really cool. They were really cool again tonight but the venue left the lights on and that took some away from their set. The ambience of pure darkness really suited their music. But they had incense that smelled SO GOOD!

I didn’t think I knew Arkhon Infaustus when I decided to go to this show. Then it turned out that I bought their one album ‘Hell Injection’ like two months ago a didn’t really like it. That CD is actually cursed. Every time I put it in my external CD drive to upload it to my computer it starts glitching out and I can’t eject it for a day or two. Oh well. They were some solid death metal. I don’t know what they played but they had some wicked riffs.

This is a different crowd than I’m usually a part of. Much darker and much more underground. I was wearing my Anaal Nathrakh shirt and I felt like some mainstream poser. It’s cool though because I’m starting to recognize all the people. Beast of the North Promotions don’t put on too many shows but their shows are probably some of the best ones I’ve gone to. The only problem they have is they charge way too much at the door. This was twenty-five dollars. But I need more shows like this.
