Metal / Re: Demilich/Averse Sefira Texas Shows
« on: June 07, 2006, 09:31:11 AM »
Excellent review

Though I saw the worse of the two shows sound-wise, Demilich's sound was still the absolute clearest and best I've ever heard a band have live. Each guitar could be heard perfectly, with the bass wavering right underneath. Though the vocals and the drums werel a bit muddled, I was still blown away at how robust the sound was as a whole, which was fantastic in conveying the intricate matrices of sound being woven.

Demilich was absolutely amazing - one of the finest displays of intensely complex music performed with passion.  I would go as far as to say that it was one of the most intense [if not legendary] shows I've ever attended, with Averse Sefira putting their all into a very violent show.

I cannot stress it enough that whoever is in the Houston area tonight MUST attend if you have not seen them yet.  I'm very very dissapointed that I can't make the drive out for the second Texas show, especially since it's promised to be even more visceral and immense, but such is the tie to responsibility.

I advise checking out a few neo-folk bands:
Death In June
Sol Invictus
Der Blutharsch
Of the Wand and the Moon
Fire + Ice

Neofolk shares alot of the same socio-political stances as black metal, yet the genre has not become bloated to the point of devolution.

Iran, the label site.

This is the same label that released Weakling's "Dead As Dreams"

We'll plan for a wine tasting/curry cookoff event that will likely devolve into public urination and hate crimes. Either way, a good time will be had by all.

Ha, I believe some von Karajan (I only have the '63 performance of 9 Symphonien) and fine wine is in order, or at the least some old At The Gates and import beer. Either way, the show(s) shall be amazing and I look foward to seeing everyone there, particularly Mr. Antti Boman who I will likely not get to meet ever again.

I'll be attending both the Houston and Austin shows and can possibly offer a ride to those that would like to carpool, thought it might be a problem as I'll be graduating around the same time (but I can't let something like graduation get in the way of Demilich ;)). If anything, perhaps a bit of post-show celebrations are in order for so many quality people that are taking the time to fly down.

I'm getting back from a trip that day so I'll be making a very caffeinated drive to Austin.

Excellent, ETM does good work setting these sorts of shows up. I look foward to the next chance.

The show is 21+, so all underrage beware.

I've seen their last 3 amazing performances (emphasis on the 3rd) but will not be able to attend due to this enraging ban on those of us who are too young to put a certain liquid into our bodies. The concert and comradery that seems to always accompany it will be sorely missed.

What's up with that pointless clean/acoustic thing that goes on for 11 minutes?

The track serves as a break in the violence; a pause for musical contemplation and serenity. It's one of my preferred tracks on the album, along with The Devourer, who's melodic attack towards the end leaves me breathless.

The album is absolutely amazing; the best, most unique death metal I've heard come out in a few years (particularly out of the brain-dead Texas death metal "scene", of which CM should not be counted part of).

That will stand as the best show of this year, possibly the next few (the most aggresive show I've been to by a long shot). The new album is, in all practicality, the finest black metal since Battle's Clarion.

I will definitely be attending. The last 2 texas shows were amazing, and I look foward to their new material, as well as conversation with everyone.
