The Red Chord -- Baltimore, MD -- March 10th, 2010
Just got back from the Sidebar. Show was supposed to be at the Sonar Club stage, but they had no power, so they moved it to this tiny ass bar 2 blocks down the road
I'll keep it short and sweet,
first up was those who lie beneath. I actually enjoyed them, well their open was the "I am a false prophet god is a superstition" part from "there will be blood"
Chelsea Grin decided to say fuck it and not play this show, since they weren't going to be getting paid for this show, since it was at a dif venue then originally, since the main venue didnt have power, and they had no merch, so they said fuck it. Found this out from the bass player of Those who Lie Beneath
Goatwhore fucking ruled. This place was small as balls, prob a 100 capacity if that, and its a bar, that happens to have like a 1 foot tall stage, but they put on a hell of a show. I didn't realize that they were a 4 piece. I thought for sure they were a 5 piece w/2 guitars. Anyways, they had a lot of energy and were really into it. And i got their setlist too
The All Destroying
Provoking the Ritual of Death
Blood Guilt Eucharist
Carving Out The Eyes of God
Alchemy of the Black Sun Cult
In Legions, I am Wars of Wrath
Desolate Path to Apocalyptic Ruin
Next came "shrug" Mychildren Mybride. The ninjas were out in full force. I watched most of their set from the bar, and still almost got hit by people doing that retarded looking 2 step dance. The amusing part was that as their open before their first offical song, they played Bad Romance and got people to dance and sing along (well the opening part)
And finally, the Red Chord. I have no voice, and since the stage was so small, I got the mike pointed at me during Black Santa, and even got to get up on stage and do the first verse. I got up to the line 'the penis walks from heaven', then my mind froze lol, and forgot the next line. Awesome show. Also Greg bought dounuts for everyone, so yes i did get to headbang while eating at the same time. I don't know all that they played, but i know for sure they played
blue line creten
that special kind of ugly
pray for eyes
there were prob 4 or 5 more, but since it was so loud and not every song had a 'this is' to it, i couldn't tell.
Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!
