A big thanks go to all the bands who played the BrooklynVegan-BBG CMJ showcase at Union Pool on Saturday night (10/23), and to everyone who made it out the sold out show. Early entries were treated to free Sailor Jerry's, Bushmills, Firefly Vodka, and earplugs courtesy of Earpeace while Salome's Terminal burned on the system.

A blistering set from Royal Thunder provided the first excursion of the evening, and their killer blues-y jams were quickly followed by the punishing doom of Batillus. The double Richmond attack of Inter Arma and Cough victimized the crowd next, each bringing a different perspective of destruction; Inter Arma's blasting black metal cleansed the palette before Cough battered the crowd with their snail's-pace doom punishment. The Body, who was sporting a third member on noise/keys/samples, sealed the deal with low-end thump and screeching vocals, drawing from their recent All The Waters Of The Earth Turned To Blood.

Union Pool tonight, 10/27, means another BrooklynVegan production, this time with the great Eugene Robinson (of Oxbow) and the awesome Man's Gin supporting. Doors are at 9, and $10 gets you in. Get there!

This was one of the best metal shows I've seen in a long time. Wished it went on a few hours longer
