Lich King -- Wheaton, MD -- March 30th, 2013
 
[URL="http://heavymetalcowboysteve.blogspot.com/2013/03/lich-king-possessor-sergios-place.html"]Full Review[/URL]

Part II, saw Otep, then had time left to come see POSSESSOR and LICH KING in my hometown of ...Wheaton, MD

It was a fun show, the place was a restaurant, hosting this night of thrash, and it was pretty well attended (over 100 people I think). I saw Heavy Metal Chris there and I'm sure he got some great pics. I never have been to this place until last night, but they are hosting another show in April

[B]Possessor[/B]'s look certainly set my expectations pretty high with the singer's 80's hair (with bangs), road warrior esque garb, and Grim Reaper shirt, the guitarist's tall mohawk, Slayer songs at soundcheck, and piercing wails. They sounded like old school thrash, with kind of messy vocals with the aforementioned soaring wails over top of it. They also had several songs with 'metal' in the title, so you KNOW they are a true metal band and I'm going to dig it.


[B]Lich King [/B]came on a little after midnight, and continued the hat/mask theme- one guy had a pink Shark Boy mask, and another had a skull mask (perhaps evoking the Lich King). The vocals sounded a bit echoy, but I think that is what the vocal effect they were going for. Their sound was a bit tig'hter than Possessor, and seemed more like controlled chaos. They had a more laid back and comic feel to them, especially with their song content (songs about sci fi/fantasy stuff like Game of Thrones, Robocop, and Predator) and between song banter ( 'That guy at the merch table who thought I was looking in the money box and didn't think I saw you lift that patch!') were rather amusing. The sound, I think because of the venue's speakers, was a bit muddy, but overall decent. The frontman seemed a bit annoyed at some points, and I don't know if it was cause people were tired and were slow at starting (and maintaining pits), or if it was part of his stage persona.

When I saw Lich King in Albany the lead singer was (jokingly I hope) asking for blood and semen. It was funny.

I wonder if the song was Crossover Songs Are Too Damn Short?

Two shows in one night is awesome!!

Actually also demanded people to fuck shit up and blood, spit, semen, etc. at this show ... It was rather silly!

Not sure what the missing song(s) was :/

I agree, I didn't think we were going to make it! totally worth it!

I used to go to shows at a place called Phantasmagoria in Wheaton when I was at grad school in DC. I imagine it's long gone. It was a mix of concert venue/bar/home brew supply with a really cool owner. I saw Dark Funeral and Usurper there in 1997 or 1998.

True story - one of the Dark Funeral dudes was in the restroom putting on his makeup, I mean corpse paint. Then he reaches over and pulls out some paper towels and stuffs them in his leather pants. No shit....

I was at that venue....saw In Flames/Moonspell co-headline there in 1999. Dillinger Escape Plan was one of the local support bands.
