Wrath of Gods

Wrath of Gods is.. Darkly heavy raging metaliciousness  that's going to severely damage your neck enticing you to keep up their full on insane drumming, dank loopy bass,  tasty shredding and monstrous vocals. This is perfect music for tearing your room apart as you pretend slamming in the pit with your homies. Okay do a Zoom sesh then!  Fuck this shit isn't forever and I heard about a couple of places that might be open to warehouse sessions. So, just [...]

Paleos

A Force.. Paleos is a metalcore force,  a fucking force bent on desecrating your senses with majestic vocals bellowing up embraced by tasty shredding that's going to tear you up one side and down the other. The drums? You're going to get crushed. You may not be able to handle what this Atalanta, Georgia band is delivering but we better hope they can come to San Diego soon.  Oh man, I can only imagine these guys in the same line [...]

A Suffocating Lie

Amp You Up For The Pits! Suffocating Lie comes galloping toward you with unhinged aggression with the intent to shake you from the floor through your core then rip your insides up and out of your flaccid body. Photo by EQ Visuals I enjoyed my introduction to Suffocating Lie and I want to give a big shout out of appreciation to, Suffocating Lie's drummer, Topher Jones for reaching out to San Diego Blather via Instagram. Eventually, I would [...]

Eridia

Eridia Eridia has artfully spun a fine metal into a diaphanous infusion of atmospheric music, alternative rock and more with progressive symphonic metal that is simply a lovely departure of the norm.  They were the first band of the night at San Diego's Wacken Metal Battle but I was late. Sorry to say that I walked in, just in time to see their last song. I really must get my shit together! However, just within those few minutes, I  heard [...]

Fisted!

Fisted!! Fisted is one hell of a show! They are funny, extremely likable and definitely talented. They bring 110% metal aggressiveness to their shows and it's an awesome experience. I highly recommend that you attend a Fisted show. You will have face melting good time! I promise! Fisted is one of three bands ( Osmium and Methodrone were the other two )  that I saw at a King Batt Entertainment show at Stage163. I hope to see them again in [...]

Osmium

Osmium A band named after one of the densest elements in the world with the promise of being a "heaviest metal" band is promising quite a bit. So, they best deliver, right? Well, they do. Yes, hell yes, they do! Osmium slammed down an intensely energized, heavy and passionate performance that was heaven. Osmium is cohesive and is aggressive from start to finish! I saw them perform at a King Batt Entertainment event held at Stage 163 with a spectacular [...]

Godhammered

Defacore? Photo by @spencerdavidblair and edits by @juneberryphoto   The name of the band is, Godhammered. According to their Facebook page, Godhammered's listed genre is, "Defacore". So, is this is a sub-genre we have not heard of before. Have you? Nevertheless, this is one crystal clear reason why supporting and exploring San Diego's local music scene is essential. So, why don't we just hang out for bit, maybe sesh about it all and find out more about Godhammered [...]

Pissed Regadless

Meet Pissed Regardless.... I've seen Pissed Regardless a couple of times, recently at San Diego's SOMA. They were part of this amazing line up that played the same night as The Rookies. Were they good?  Hell Yes! They were absolutely brutal as fuck! Are they metal? Are they punk? Well, Pissed Regardless, to me, is a hybrid of hardcore street punk and thrash metal band that will damage your neck whether you want to bang or not, you're simply compelled [...]

Hollow Stage

Meet Hollow Stage! Am I slow? Kind of. Why? Hollow Stage also shared the stage at San Diego's SOMA the very same night that The Rookies and Pissed Regardless played. They were on stage when I walked into for an evening of mind blowing entertainment. I would have loved to have caught their full set but what I did enjoy and has definitely whet my appetite to see Hollow Stage again. I hope you feel the same! So, on to [...]
