Venue: Emo's (Indoor Stage)
We Who Are About To Die
Enter The Grave
When I got to the venue Lions of Tsavo was playing their final song. I'm not too familiar with their material, so I couldn't tell you what they played. But, they sounded good and I would've liked to hear more, which shouldn't be hard since they're a local band.
Up next was Bonded By Blood. Again, I don't know their stuff well, but from what I've listened to I liked them live much more than on recording. This is straight up thrash. These guys bring a ton of energy to the stage and got a good portion of the small crowd headbanging. Solid live show.
The band I came to see, Evile, followed. This was my first time seeing the English gentlemen and they put on a great show. Ol Drake was great to watch shred up close. Even though the crowd was only about 30 strong on a Sunday night Evile got a strong response. They mentioned that they want to do a headline tour in the US soon and to spread the word about the band to friends. I really would have loved to hear a couple more songs, but they put on a good enough show that I would be willing to catch them again. Thrasher sounded great live and was probably my favorite song of the night.
I stuck around for the first couple Early Man songs, but they just aren't up my alley and it was after midnight and I was ready to head home.
Here's a video I shot of Evile:
