Grace of Landmine Marathon (by Samantha Marble)
Landmine Marathon

A hearty thanks go out to everyone who showed up to the BrooklynVegan/1000 Knives/Crustcake show at Hoeks Death Metal Pizza on 3/18! Though the hot sun was blaring down, the bands in the shade somehow made it hotter with their scorched earth policy and unbridled energy.

Trash Talk was beyond violent, The Atlas Moth was soaring/epic as usual, The Funeral Pyre was furious and powerful (as I found out the previous night), Book of Black Earth's crusty metal was ferocious, and Kill The Client was just as punishing as they were at Emo's. Due to some scheduling issues, we bumped Speedwolf to the last slot after Trash Talk and I missed them entirely, though reviews from the trustworthy point toward badass. Zoroaster played mostly newer material from their promising new doom-crust-leaning LP, and managed to hold back their massive firepower on stage to just "loud as fuck" as opposed to "bleeding ears". Landmine Marathon were fun and elblematic of what is great about metal today. And Coffinworm? Just plain sick blackened doom.

More pics and and a bunch of videos are below...

"We've returned home to both Indiana and normalcy following our post-Texas expedition. Even with so much red-tape surrounding SXSW we still managed to have fun and drink ourselves into a coma. Our sincerest of thanks go to Chris Bruni, Ryan Oesch, Phil Hook, Kim Kelly, Salome folks, Dark Castle folks, Fred/Brooklyn Vegan, Hoek's Death Metal Pizza, Headhunters, Billy Milano, Mala Suerte, Zoroaster, The Gates of Slumber, Landmine Marathon, Kill The Client, Hatred Surge, Yakuza, and all of the other bands and folks we got to hang out with. Also, big ups to Carl and Todd for their navigational abilities amidst a hipster holocaust and a van full of drunken noon idiots, as well as Darkthrone and The Dwarves for being two of the best bands ever, even with their more recent missteps."

Is anyone in this post NOT wearing a band shirt?

Posted by Anonymous | March 31, 2010 1:17 PM

That was a great show. Zoroaster was too awesome! And I don't think I was wearing a band shirt. I think I was wearing a tattoo shop shirt (Rock of Ages) Thanks for putting this show together!

Trash Talk is BEYOND good.

If you miss a chance to see them live, you're a loser.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
