I’m curious.

How many people do these posts reach? Please reply to this if you get the posts and receive all the show/music updates, either in your email, or through posterous/facebook/tumblr/wordpress. It would just give me a little hint of what needs to be done to get the word out a little more. In the meantime, go to this show tonight. Haruka and Stopping Power are fuckin it all up. Thanks

Your Upcoming Shows for October

While I wait for Pam’s late ass to come by so we can head over to the show tonight, I decided it was best to keep you all updated on this month’s show lineup with the time I have. As you can see, you are all in store for some really good shows this month. This month you will have the chance to rawk it to the likes of SLEEP WALK, PSO, NO BUENO, TANTIVE-IV, LINKLETTER, HARUKA, IMPULSE, and STOPPING POWER. The last quarter of 2012 seems off to a great start. Let’s keep them coming until California sinks into the Pacific on December 21, 2012. Spoooooky.

NOW AVAILABLE: REMAIN IN VAIN – “Someone To Watch Over Me” Cassettes

Time to get vain, and remain that way, with REMAIN IN VAIN’s “Someone To Watch Over Me” on cassette tape. 5 months in the making, these are long overdue, but mostly for the comedic effect of pissing off Marcus.  Fresh from the tape factory in all its glory, these beauties are limited to 100, so get your hands on a crispy copy soon.

The band is having their tape release on September 22 at Grosero’s Tattoo and Skate with TANTIVE-IV, NOK, Vital Oregon, and NO BUENO, so grab a copy there, or better yet order online here. or here

Intestine Baalism – An Anatomy of the Beast (1997)

Intestine Baalism - An Anatomy of the Beast (1997)An Anatomy of the Beast is the first full-length release by Intestine Baalism in 1997. Intestine Baalism are a death metal outfit straight from the isles of Japan.

At first glance, this album is reminiscient of At The Gates melo-death style right before it crapped itself into proto-metalcore, while picking up a few of the stylistic upgrades that found their way into death metal in the early-to-mid 90’s.

This band’s strong point is that it undertakes a sense of Romantic-era classical melody and song construction and injects it into the discordant sonic textures of death metal, which is the bare minimum you need to do to net yourself the “melodic” label in some circles. It’s no easy feat if you listen to how awful many of the more recent melodic death metal offerings are, and if you’ve heard any Japanese metal bands before, you’d know that the majority are pop-structured cartoon imitations of real bands. Then again, the same goes for everywhere else. My apologies, Japan.

As for this album, it’s not quite “technical” but it’s not meatheaded either; there are some very strong, headbangy parts in most songs if that’s what you’re looking for. It’s the very same bombastic feel that Celtic Frost set out to create on To Mega Therion.

As is typical of any good metal song, they construct each song around a set of core melodies that help to make each one memorable on its own, proving that Intestine Baalism aren’t just a foreign band trying to clone a style of music they happen to enjoy, they actually managed to create something interesting and original with some thought and feel to it.

Percussion isn’t a mere fill-in but is employed tactfully to punctuate the emotional urgencies of each of the melodies which connect to one another. Few, if any riffs are hurried into, and each song is given time to flourish and resolve itself properly.

There’s not much else to be said other than that I feel that by its end, the album really leads you to a down note, which I suppose isn’t a bad thing after all. If you’re into Japanese bands, harsh music and vocalists who sound like monsters, give this album a shot since it falls into all 3 of those categories.
