Unearthly Trance

Unearthly Trance

Unearthly Trance headlined a night of doom-y destruction at The Charleston with the ridiculous Coffinworm, along with Archon (who will play Acheron with Wolvserpent) and Syphilitic Lust. Unfortunately, I only caught the tail end of dueling-vocal doomers Archon from afar, and missed SL entirely. The show was one of a short set of shows for Coffinworm, as the band drove directly from Indianapolis (their home) to Philadelphia on Friday before damning The Charleston on Saturday night.

Coffinworm was a four-piece for the evening, as the recent departure of Tony McGuire on guitar left guitarist T Garrett O'Sha on double duty. Though some complementary parts were missing, the band was nothing less than ferocious and the next time that the Indy band swings through it'll be as a five piece; Coffinworm will replace him with When All Became None cover artist Josh 'Chubbs' Shrontz on drums and current drummer Carl Byers moving from behind the kit to guitar (Josh also plays in World Eater with Coffinworm vocalist Dave). Coffinworm kicked things off with the driving and acidic punk tones of "Start Saving For Your Funeral" before moving into faves from the new LP like "Blood Born Doom", "High on the Reek of Your Burning Remains" and the set closer "The Sadistic Rites Of Count Tabernacula". A pit erupted multiple times during their incredible set.

Unearthly Trance was last up, closing out the evening with two new nods ("The Horsemen Arrive in the Night" and "Solar Eye") to their upcoming LP V due on Relapse this fall. In addition to the new horned beasts, the NYC band burned through UT faves like "Raised By Wolves", "God is a Beast" (the encore) and their cover of Winter's "Servants of the Warsmen" (viewable below). As usual the band delivered a searing set of fiery doom, and I already can't wait to see them with Doomriders and Sleep at Brooklyn Masonic Temple on Septmeber 6th (one of two Sleep shows, 9/8 is sold out)

Metal > metal fans. I've seen ICP audiences that had more charm and good looks...

Thanks 1:12. I assume that your next comment will have something to do with either Daft Punk, hummus, sausage party, or something else equally "clever". Eat a bowl of dix.

1:23 - no, my next comment will be about how "Metal was better back in the day..." At least there are some females at these shows now, I guess. Ah, progress.

Unearthly Trance and Coffinworm slayed. Unearthly Trance are masters of their craft; Coffinworm will be soon I'm sure. Wish I had tickets for the 9/6 Sleep show instead of 9/8! Fuck!

Coffinworm's one of the best bands to come out of Indiana in a long while. There's more than corn in Indiana for sure!
