Deicide -- West Springfield, VA -- March 1st, 2012

I went to see Deicide and Jungle Rot at Empire (formerly JAXX...Jaxxpire?). First time I'd been back since Korpiklaani in December. The JAXX sign is now EMPIRE (Empire!) and there is a lot of new, modern/clean looking improvements/changes. New paint pretty much everywhere. Only one staff member from the 'old guard' there- The sound dude. The ticket booth now is an actual booth. There were a couple other places where a similar 'booth' was erected- with a black top and silver metal looking paneling. There is a small stage in the back bar, and both bars were stripped down. A couple easy to read whiteboards or some signs were visible near them advertising drink specials. The bathrooms (well the mens at least) have tile, the urinal trough is gone, and it seemed CLEAN in there. There was a huge banner in the back of the stage that said EMPIRE (EMPIRE!) and some big flags of their new tiger mascot were on the sides of the stage. Staff was attentive and no problems to report when I got a Michael Schenker ticket. Seems like a change for the better...

Another change I noticed was that things seemed way more on time than usual JAXX time... The set changes seemed to take about 1/3 less time- I wish I had timed things. There was an actual time schedule posted on the side of the speakers- and the numbers there were pretty accurate. This (and the bathrooms) was a big improvement IMO. We'll see if the Schenker show next week will be as smooth.


I got there a bit too early (7:45 or so), and saw most of the set for Krass Judgement (Thrashy Death Metal). They were decent, I in particular enjoyed the guitarist shredding. He looked like a young Jeff H. from Slayer. There was some seemingly random big boned black guy backing up/helping on some of the guttural vocals (and did fine in that respect). He seemed a little out of place, and at one point came down tot he floor and tried to invoke a pit.

Lecherous Nocturne came on next, and they sounded like some sort of black/death metal combo. The vocalist was extra unintelligible and the music didn't sound particularly great IMO. I disliked their set.

Abigail Williams came on after a quick set change, and I was not sure what to expect. They had some sort of 'core' or death sound but I know they recently shifted gears to a black metal sound. And apparently a chick who knew/was photographing the previous band informed me that they had gone thru NUMEROUS lineup changes... They sounded like some sort of atmospheric black metal- with tracks that are probably off that newest album (which is in that style). I know the last song is def "Beyond...". I am assuming that the rest of their setlist is the same as from some December shows... I think they were better than Lecherous Nocturne, but I don't think I was in the mood for this atmospheric type music so I didn't enjoy their set too much.

Jungle Rot was next (and they had speakers with their logo emblazoned on them). I was pretty excited to see them- had not seen them live before. They sounded very good and were the highlight of the show for me. I def banged my head a lot during their set. They got the crowd moving and some actual pits rolled out.

Deicide came on around 11PM and the floor got a lot fuller, and they all seemed pumped to see these dudes. They were very loud, but a quite bit unintelligible (perhaps more than anticipated). I think they sounded way better on the album (I was also way tired by that point and not sure if that affected the sonic review) and I think I would say I was a bit disappointed. The crowd seemed a bit dead compared to Jungle Rot and all the moshing after the 4th or so song. The pits that Deicide had dried up after that... quite odd. I stayed for what I predict was about half of their set.

Pictures coming soon- But overall I'm glad I went (tho I could have taken my time eating a bit more X__X)

You're judging a death metal band on how you can understand the vocals?

Ha ha Yes I realize that is not what I had meant. A certain level of unintelligibly is perfectly fine with me.

What I thinkI had meant to say was that their overall sound was just that- sound. This particular band just sounded like a dull roar, not anything particularly interesting or exciting to me

Ok, yeah, now I understand what you meant. It's true, his vocals aren't much remarkable. Still, I like the apocalyptic feel in Tha Age of Miracles Has Passsed and I'm looking forward to see them this sunday, but I know their music is hard to follow and thus hard to appreciate when you've never heard the songs before. Last time I saw them was with Rotting Christ, and there were like 10 people in the venue for them, but they still slayed.

Yeah I think If I had heard some tracks before hand it would be easier to get into it. But that's how it goes sometime :/

Small shows can be fun :3 intimate shows - I think there were about 12 when We saw Blackguard up at some tiny club - there was a 3 person mini mosh pit...

I really wish Jungle Rot would play Gasping for Air.

Glad to hear the positive changes there. That urinal trough was fucking disgusting.

Did they finally fix the "drinking" area or is that still retarded too? There is nothing stranger than penalizing people for drinking by restricting them to an upper area.

They seemed to have it sectioned off more now, there is some sort of silver/black barrier that separates the bar area from the rest as you walk in the main door to the stage room. I didn't inspect it too much, but I imagine it has a door or gate for the 21+ over only shows that they'd open.

They def seemed to be more um...watchful of checking wrist bands (yes they have these now, too) to make sure you're of age to drink.

I agree about the restricting to the upper area being rather dumb- 930 club has no such restriction- so why can't Jaxxpire?
