Once again, Rock and Roll Hotel bouncer Andy weighs in on the current metal scene. I know, I used to be scared of him too, but the man would take a bullet for us skinny ass hipsters any day. Enjoy! -cale
Hello everyone out in Byt land! Are ya ready? It’s time to throw out the vinyl, put down your PBR, and crank up the Metal to Eleven!
Currently head banging and WOW! my neck and upper back are still uber sore from Slayers show last Tuesday. What a timeless band. Ok, maybe they are getting old, but goddamn can those grand-dads still rock the house down.
Slayer lead singer/bass player Tom Araya may be resembling the late Saddam in the beard department these days, but that distraction was quickly forgotten when some bats from hell came flying out of that sucker during Reign in Blood.
I saw some of you BYT readers there, but for those who missed it, here’s the set list:
God hates us all
Die by the Sword (my fave)
Spirit in Black
Seasons in the Abyss
Dead Skin Mask
Trilled (clocking in at what seemed like 10 blood curdling minutes
Reign in Blood
and finally Angel of Death
They warned us all they’ll be swinging by the area at the end of the year.
Evil Disco kicked ass once again, guitar hero, Jameson shots, lost purses, drunk chicks, partial stripping, band members in attendance, and some old drunk dudes in suits (who fucking put a damper on the night by bumping into the fire alarm). But still an overall goodnight of debauchery. If John Bonham’s ghost were to be anywhere it should haunt the hell out of Evil Disco. Minus the Shark.
I want to appologize for not including the Municipal Waste show that was on Fri in Bethesda. They kick ass live.
