Eradication's Deathfest yesterday at the Black Heart.
A cracking day of death metal. Met some cool dudes and dudettes. Band highlights for me were Twitch of the Death Nerve, NervoChaos, Desecration and Severe Torture.
TofDN are playing again later this year with Carnation so I'll probably be getting another chance to these soupy sounding, heavy as fuck mofos. NervoChaos followed two slam bands, which probably explains why the good sized crowd weren't as enthusiastic as I thought they deserved. Personally I love their groovy, slightly punky, old-school DM. I think this was Desecration's first gig for several years. The singer said they were unprepared, unrehearsed and uncensored. They tore that shit up! The Black Heart probably saved the best until last. Severe Torture were brutal as fuck, had the best sound and smashed it. Awesome set!
Next for me is Dylan and Neil Young in Hyde Park on Friday. Talk about a change of direction!
