Hellshock

8PM marked the start of two killer back to back shows at Knitting Factory on 10/30, the first of which featured crusty Japanese hardcore band AGE with Hellshock, Atakke, Perdition, and Cervix. The show was one of two that night for AGE/Hellshock, as the pair ended up playing a surprise show later at Acheron with Kakka Hatta 77 and Acid Reflux.

Of the touring parties, Hellshock crammed the most kids into the room, but it was AGE that impressed me the most with their wildman hardcore antics and foul riffs. Hellshock's death metal vocals over thrash-y d-beat were also well executed, as was the always dependable Atakke. Perdition was probably the single most violent set of the night. They inciting frenzied moshing to go along with their vocalists' out-of control stage antics (whipping around the stage, swinging the mic stand and smashing things with its base).

It was an awesome (Mischief) night of crust-y punk extremity that continued as the clock struck midnight and it turned Halloween. That's when Krieg & Woe took over the venue to darken things a bit... More about the late Krieg/Woe show is on the way, but for now dig on the moshpits, the costumes, and the massacre that was AGE & Hellshock, below...

Guys in those damned neon suits need to stop. They were funny for three seconds the first time I saw one. But at every other concert it just becomes aggravating. Even more so when they crowd surf, or a pack of guys at a festival wears them together, or...

Please, dudes, just stop. This is a stupid fad.

Death Metal: form of music that people enjoy for musical reasons, or form of music that people listen to so they can continue adolescent rebellion?

Rebellion? Jesus Jimmy. Reduce Death Metal all you want, but at least be smart about it.

Are you talking about Green Man? It's because of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It will be gone in a few years, replaced by something else for you to hate.

GREEN PEOPLE = L A M E

Leave the Green people alone, it's pretty funny if you quit letting it bug you. It's all for fun and it was Halloween, relax =P

And as for Jimmy "Ausiocred", You have no idea what you're going on about. Stick to yourself with your pseudo-intellectual analysis on stuff you don't know a thing about. On another note, Humus is some niceeeeee shittttttttt
