Saw the reunited At The Drive-In last night. Great show - they played the majority of 'Relationship of Command', with only a few short detours to 'In/Casino/Out' and 'Vaya'.

Chimpyfest 2016 done, I've been every year since it started and I'd say the first two days were the strongest yet (yesterday the bands were a bit hit or miss). Pictures of bands I took
Image
Lugubrious Children (Leeds)
Image
Godhole (Edinburgh)
Image
Pancreatic Purulence (Netherlands)
Image
Satanic Malfunctions (Scarborough)
Image
Chiens (France)
Image
Lycanthropy (Czech Republic)
Image
Lifespite (Netherlands)
Image
Reproach (Belgium)
Image
Needful Things (Czech Republic)
Image
Hellkrusher (Newcastle)
Image
Tools Of The Trade (Malaysia)
Image
Looking For An Answer (Spain)
Image
Noise Complaint (London)
Image
Brainshit (Nottingham)
Image
Shrykull (Nottingham)
Image
Ona Snop (Leeds)
Image
Image
Nothing Clean (Leicester)
Image
Endless Swarm (Edinburgh)
Image
Deterrence (Poland)
Image
Nephyla (Mexico)

Saturday was definitely the best day, between Tools Of The Trade and Looking For An Answer it was hard to say who was better, but they were both upstaged by Belgian Mincecore legends Agathocles, who'd been drinking allday to the point they could barely play.
Image
The singer was too pissed to play bass so he made one of their roadies do it, then the drummer pissed off the two guys who do sound at T. Chances by just throwing a microphone on the ground, after a massive argument one soundman started packing up the microphones while they played (you can see him in the picture above), for a few songs the singer just screamed at the crowd until someone found a microphone the soundman missed.
Image
Towards the end of the set the girl from Nephyla stepped in on drums, then the guitarist from Deterrence, and then finally the soundman who early confiscated the microphones on bass, the whole thing ended in a bizarre jam session with no members of the band onstage. Apparently they were so hunover they missed their Eurostar train back to Belgium the next day.
Image
My friend who started the festival joked that they are going to release their set as a bootleg for revenge, there has been prospective artwork knocked up already
Image

Going back next year? Yeah

Post Re: Last Gig Attended.
I saw Immolation at Manning Bar in Sydney last night. Here are my thoughts:

CRUCIFORM - An old local favourite of mine from the early to mid-90's. Strangely they appeared as a four-piece when traditionally they've been a five or six piece. This time drummer Michael Lenton was handling the vocals exclusively instead of his usual backup role & there was no keyboardist at all which I did miss during songs like "Gutter". They started off with a couple of old songs with opener "I, To The Heavens Shall Lift My Eyes" sounding particularly crushing but things started to fall apart pretty badly when they introduced two new pieces. Neither were particularly good tracks but the second song came to a crashing halt due to guitarist Tony Mulhearn's inability to play parts of the song. When also consider that his guitar was horribly out of tune it really was embarrassing to watch the clean solo guitar interludes. It was like seeing a beginner try to play more advanced pieces for the first time. Even the ever-reliable closing track "Sanctuary" couldn't reel things back in from there. A disappointing performance that provided me with further proof that Cruciform are not what they once were.

ASTRIAAL - A five-piece black metal outfit from Brisbane who've been around for 18 years now. This was my first time seeing them live though & they were pretty impressive to be honest. They don't try to reinvent the wheel but manage to present a very solid example of the traditional black metal sound. Drummer Gryphon was the clear focal point in my opinion & he's a very accomplished musician. His blast beats & rolls were precise & powerful. The best band of the night by a considerable margin.

IMMOLATION - The production for the first two bands was very good so imagine my surprise when Immolation come on & sound vastly inferior. The kick drum sound was abominably clicky & loud. It made it hard to hear the rest of the kit. The bass & vocals could be heard comfortably but the two guitars were much too far back in the mix. Especially for the opening 2-3 songs. Having a clicky kick sound might be annoying but it's not the end of the world necessarily. Unfortunately when you add in a drummer that can't play double kick to save his life then it starts to really effect you're enjoyment of the show. There were very few songs that didn't sound like an absolute mess & I'm genuinely surprised that a band of this level could put up with that sort of technical deficiency. The early material sounded the most acceptable as it was less complicated. Vocalist/bassist Ross Dolan & lead guitarist Robert Vigna were giving it everything from a performance point of view but unfortunately I just couldn't get into it. Really disappointing.

SLAYER/ANTHRAX/DEATH ANGEL

Opening with "Evil Priest" got me immediately on board and though they only had 30 minutes, DEATH ANGEL proved their relevance to everyone. Mark's vocals still shred like nobody's business and the fact that he can throw out a blistering 12 second scream with the best of them this far into his career is stellar.

ANTHRAX is what they've been for a while now. I just wish they would lay off the covers and play their own songs.

Did the VIP early entry thing, so we got to watch SLAYER's sound check, which was very amusing. They did some VAN HALEN, CHEAP TRICK and SCORPIONS songs, plus ran through "Die by the Sword", which they didn't play later. They were interactive and very cool.

Here's the set list:


Repentless
Chemical Warfare
Disciple
Postmortem
Hate Worldwide
War Ensemble
When the Stillness Comes
Mandatory Suicide
You Against You
Fight Till Death
Dead Skin Mask
Pride in Prejudice
Vices
Seasons in the Abyss
Hell Awaits
South of Heaven
Raining Blood
Black Magic
Angel of Death


Now, that's just about the best collection of 20 songs I've seen from them. Strong finish with those final 6, especially and fucking "Fight Til Death" was AWESOME!!

Say what you want about King, but the guy loves being on stage and playing his music for the people. Holt owns his spot these days and Tom, though he just can't thrash about the way he used to, sounded great. SLAYER crowds still rule no matter where you go and therefor, so do SLAYER shows.

Post Re: Last Gig Attended.
The Sydney Symphony Orchestra have been running a series throughout the year at the Opera House where they play the scores to classic films whilst you watch the film. Managed to attend the one last weekend, where they played 'Back to the Future' (unfortunately I missed 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' earlier in the year which I really wanted to see). Managed to score some good seats, maybe 15 or so rows back from the front. Amazingly well played.

It had actually been quite a while since I had watched the original in the series as well (possibly when it was on TV and I still watched TV). As much as I loved it as a kid, the time travel theory in it, even from a simplistic point of view for the narrative, makes my brain hurt due to how inconsistent it is, but that is just me being pedantic. :?

Highlights of this years Bloodshed Fest
Image
Fistula (USA)
Image
Chiens (France)
Image
Siege (USA), yes, the Siege that made one demo in the 80's which influenced Grindcore, apparently this is only 3/4 of the original line up which gives me hope that J. Mascis and Lou Barlow will get together with two randoms to fill in for guitar and vocals for a series of high profile Deep Wound reunion performances.
Image
Okkultokrati (Norway)
Image
Wojczech (Germany)
Image
Malignant Tumour (Czech Republic)
Image
Victims (Sweden)

Lots of fun and it was great to revisit Eindhoven

John Carpenter, Liverpool Olympia. 7 hours driving in one day for a 75 min set, worth every second, mindblowingly good.

I'm just back from Damnation and it was a superb day. The pre-show gig on the Friday was good, too.

Highlight of Damnation was, quite clearly, Cult of Luna w/Julie Christmas, who put on one of the most incredible performances I've seen for many many years.

Other than CoL, Enslaved were absolutely superb.

Other highlights were:

Ocean of Slumber (heavier than I was expecting)
Dread Sovereign (Alan Averill's doom band)
Gets Worse (every festival should have a least one grind band on the bill)
Dead Lord (from the Friday Night show)
Ninkarsag (also on the Friday)
Venom Prison

The Dud of the weekend award has to go to Abbath: What a pile of crap. I lasted about 10 minutes. My mates, who stayed to watch the whole of Abbath's set, said it didn't get any better. He's essentially a novelty comedy act these days.

COL was other worldly. I'm going to get chills every time I think about that performance. Pure magic.

Agreed on DREAD SOVEREIGN as well. That was a lot of fun. Much better than trying to sit through ABBATH.

I'll add that NE OBLIVISCARIS and MITHRAS were really good on the Tez stage.

TOTD at MSG. Absolutely insane night, band was tight and had an energy missing from recent PJ shows, and Cornell sounded amazing. The cover of War Pigs was epic. Fantastic night. Check them out if they play near you.

ENTOMBED doing "Clandestine" with the Malmo Symphony Orchestra

It's all very easy to look askance at the Metal/Orchestra thing. I quite like the idea of adding some depth and fullness to the rawness of a Death Metal classic and that's what we got here. The composers of this night took a bit different approach to it by making the orchestra the focal point and allowing things to stretch out, slow down and rise and fall properly. It was much more than the band playing their songs and being backed by 100 other musicians.

Most noticeably, the vocal parts were largely handled by the choir or just omitted entirely in favor of the music. Ovrar Safstrom made his return, but he was used sparingly. It was a good way to keep the flow going. Uffe and Alex sort of meandered in and out never overpowering the big sound, just adding to it, while Nicke sat back and randomly percussed his way through. I really liked the arrangements of "Sinner's Bleed", "Evilyn" and "Crawl".

Intermission, then the stage became all ENTOMBED adding a couple guys who were in MORBUS CHRON, most notably vocalist Robert Andersson who fit the mold in almost scarily perfect fashion. I very much doubt that LG could have performed with the same level of intensity and ability that Andersson did. He sounds like he was the responsible for the vox on "Clandestine", which the band ripped through front to back.

Two things to note: Nicke Andersson made an unbelievable statement by pounding the absolute living hell out of everything in site and the chemistry between Uffe's riffing and Alex's soloing remains unmatched. It was a little odd watching this whole thing from the comfy seat of an orchestral venue, but I was just spellbound. Transported back, moved, in awe you name it.

Nice little touch adding the extended ep style finish of "Crawl" and then moved into the extended intro of "Severe Burns" ala NIHILIST. I would have been fine with all of "Clandestine", but the "Left Hand Path" encore, done PROPER-like for the first time in who knows how long was a beautiful treat. That closing bit produced some actual chills.

No words spoken, no need to introduce each song, no frills. Only Uffe stating boldly into the mic at night's end "We are ENTOMBED!". which is all that needs to be said, really.

There was a full on crew there documenting the whole thing. They have been running a Pledge Music campaign for a few months now and they surpassed their goal, so it will definitely be released as a home video/audio product.

An Evening with Sir Roger Moore.

Surprisingly fun. Lots of geeks there and lots of old people. He's in good fettle for his age. Sir Roger sharing anecdotes about his career for a couple of hours. Lots of the tongue-in-cheek humour you'd expect and double entendres. No, I didn't pay for my ticket.
