Warbringer -- St. Paul, MN -- June 13th, 2010
Living in a Whirlwind
Prey for Death
At the Crack of Doom
The show was advertised to start at 6:30 p.m. Since I worked all day, I was looking forward to catching Warbringer's set and getting home early. I arrived at 8 p.m. and Sacrificial Slaughter, the first band, was just starting. Yawn. At least the hoops game was on in the bar so I could kill time before Warbringer. I checked out portions of Enfold Darkness and Vital Remains, but Warbringer was the only band on this bill that I cared about.
Around 10:15, Warbringer finally came on. There were maybe 50 people in the audience. It was my first time seeing Warbringer and I can't tell you how pleased I am to have finally discovered a young metal band I can dig. Warbringer played for about 45 minutes and and one-fourth of the audience headed for the exit immediately after. Pestilence couldn't have had more than 35 people in the room for their set.
I'm pulling for Warbringer to keep improving and stick around for a while. Cool bunch of guys and a helluva band.
