Six Feet Under -- Frederick, MD -- November 3rd, 2012

Full Review

Wretched was on when we got there. They sounded OK. Energy level was good, but I wasn't really into them.

There were a lot of people there- it was pretty crowded.

Cattle Decapitation was on next- and my fears came true. The dull roar punctuated by yelps every so often exemplified what I considered Cattle Decapitation to sound like- Noise. That is not to say there were not some parts I liked, but those were few and far between. I was only cursorily familiar with them, and only recognized a couple songs/heard the vocalist say what they were. The crowd was pretty into them, from the pits we saw and avoided and I saw more than a few Cattle Decapitation shirts. The thing that stuck most in my mind was that before their set, the vocalist had several issues with the microphone sounds an kept on shouting at the sound guy in what sounded like a condescending voice. THEN, throughout the set, during a few songs, he STILL complained, asking that the sound be a little higher, or a little lower (depending). I found this supremely hilarious because I could not pick out one word of his vocals during the actual songs. Different Strokes, I guess. I thought they were pretty horrible. I liked the heaviness, but disliked pretty much everything else.

Six Feet Under came on a bit before midnight, to a thinner crowd (not sure if locals went home, or if more people wanted to see Cattle Decapitation). I thought their first song was better than Cattle Decapitation's whole set. They had what C.D. did not have- songs, structure, an (somewhat) melody. I only was familiar with a few Six Feet Under songs, but I knew it would be a nice and heavy show. I was not disappointed. Headbanging was my choice for most of the songs- and they were nice headbanging riffs to do it to. The pits were less intense than CD, but I think people were getting tired.
We were in the back and every time I tried to take a picture, someone would move in the way and block. So I really got a bunch of unusable photos. Regardless, the slower, heavier, and more distinct song structure for Six Feet Under had me loving it. I would def see these guys again. Chris Barnes' dreadlocks were ridiculous and must have been almost hitting the floor. Whatever they were doing, they kept the crowd pretty enthralled.

TLDR; Cattle Decapitation= not my cup of tea, Six Feet Under ruled, and Wretched was...there too.
