No shit. The one time I actually have the money to go to MDF, I have work obligations. Tell Decryot they give me big boners. I hate my life for not getting to see them.

you got one more band.. best get here in the next 30 minutes.

skarp: after the sound check, i kept seeing a girl in a dress get on stage. When they finally got going, she was the singer. Pretty sick scream. They looked like a bunch of PVD crusties. The music was pretty good though. Some of the drums were phobia dancy. The singer lapse in a clean sing/talking voice that sounded like bikini kill vocals.

afgrund: these were the guys that ran all the sound checks. Even so, it seemed like they werent happen with some of the sound that they got. They were pretty damn good. Not sure it they werfe from another country. I thought they were from either the midwest or canada, but it sounded like they were speaking some space language in between songs. if there was a genre of music that was all about screaming with your mouth wide open, it would go to these guys. total mouthwideopenscreaminggrindmetal.

torsofuck will be playing in a couple minutes.

theyre from Sweden and was really hoping this they were one of the bands that were gonna make it up this way but oh well.

jesus, my phone is being so shitty.


torsofuck: when they started, you heard that sample and then one of the best distorted guitar sounds. Clean and clear yet fuzzy. Is that danny lilker on bass? I ran out of the club to grab some oreos and when i came back, 1/2 the floor was a mosh pit. The vocalist (who loooked like the hulk minus the green) had a souless voice. is the name an abscess reference?

So far it's be awsome catching up with sparky (misery index), carina and my photographer friend from switzerland, bugging mitch, etc... lots of multi-year people.

ingrowing: their english was almost as bad as my german. Seeing them live made me wished they played allston. They were so friggen good. The lead dude was a big guy and squeeled out a multitude of different girndy vocals. I was wicked surprised. Sometimes he sounded like magrudergrind, other times machetazo. The only bad thing about their set was that they set up and then took 20 minutes out before their official time had started. I kept almost nodding off looking at my phone while they did whatever off stage. All that and grizloch said they were better the other two times they played. I think they even did a terrorizer cover.



toggletoggle post by RichHorror  at May 23,2008 8:58pm
Yeah, I have two of their albums and they're one of my faves. I was so psyched to see them. For this reason I will not belay my hatred of the Philly promoter.



toggletoggle post by the_reverend   at May 23,2008 9:08pm
they were seriously so good. im stuck on words to use because i always say awesome even when a band might not be "that" awesome, but these guys were _______ (adjective).

day everything became nothing, the: they were everything that i had wished gut was going to be last year. A band with pitch-shifted vocals and 5 members AND they move around the stage?awesomeness indeed. This (plus samples) is what i wished gut was like. The pit was really going at this point. I snapped a shot of a girl getting her ass shoved down. They had a slowed down interlude where they all left the stage and the drummer played 1BPM. They ended with a slamfest. Good stuff. still giggling about the push a bitch picture.

you missed the rest of that statment. mind your commas.

phobia: seeing phobia on a stage is a bit weird to say the least. It's going to be really akward not seeing them from some crust-punk's pee-soaked armpit. Apparently leon is still in the band. That was a little shocking to me. But yes, i did know i would see him in some band or another. Who is their drummer? That's not the guy from uphill battle. He's probably in europe or something. They played fuck you, so full of hate, a then i thought to myself "are they going to play every song i know?" right then, they play cruel. Ha! That was just the first 2 minutes of their set too. During that time there was one crowd surfer and one guy that got up on stage. They had one more song and of course played 2.

squash bowels: wow... They sounded soooo much better tonight compared with obriens. The sound was massive. They also had a lot more room so the guy that stood perfectly still on the stage in obreins raged all over the place, headbanging. I think i missed the singer jumping. Lame. Dwyer said they did a Gut song. That strengths my feelings that they can do anything without a pitchshifter (live) that any other band would need one to do.

martyr: yes! I have wanted to se these guys for way too long. It was pure bliss. The were all voivody and techy while banging their heads. Made for a nerdy metal spectacular. If i could have gotten them to play the entire album of killing technology, i would have sat there drooling for 40 minutes. Techy DM bands from canada always make the goofiest faces. Even if this is the only band i can think of right now that does it, just look at the pictures. When you can get that good that you can untinkingly play music like that, headbang, and make rediculous faces, you have won.

grave: super long set up time. I think they should have rushed on stage after martyr to capitalize on their energy. Damn, the only 2-3 songs i want to hear are at the end of their set. They of course sounded super good. I would have liked it if they had gotten to play one other show in the states before they played MDF so they would have been a little more relaxed/into it on stage, but that's ok. The singer always is a little stiff on stage anyhow. I left after the song about jesus.

Haha! I gotta laugh every time I see that tatt on Andy's ankle! "Rock N Roll *pentagram* Hellraiser"
I gave him that ink when he was like 15! Sowing needle, indian ink, cheap whiskey and bad punk rock = killer tatt!

Nice pics Rev!

That is the profile of The_Reverend, a 29-year old man who says he lives in "Heaven" located in Central Luzon, Philippines. Another deranged hallucinating man who is out to spread hate here. Another great pretender is out to destroy the harmony and friendship in this online community. Another "priest," "pastor" or "minister of God" to use Bible as defense to be able to LURE us of his good intention.
