Phantom Glue recently bid adeiu to drummer Terri Christopher (of 27), but the Boston band made up of members of Huguenots and Proselyte are still on schedule to play a string of dates on the East Coast in late January. January 28th means a Brooklyn show at The Acheron with support from Defeatist, Xaddax (featuring Nick of ex-Dazzling Killmen) and Castevet (who will also appear at the same venue exactly two weeks earlier with Seidr, Lake of Blood, and Falls of Rauros).

Castevet/Defeatist bassist Josh Scott's other band, Radiation Blackbody, will also play a show with Xaddax at Bruar Falls on 1/26 with Vaz and Fall Of Another Day. Josh Scott listed his Top Albums of 2010 for us. Check that out now.

The Acheron will also host Cali-killers The Love Below and NJ's own Pharoah on January 23rd, one day after the two bands play the A389 anniversary in Baltimore with Integrity, Haymaker, Dropdead, Rot In Hell, and a number of notable others. Pharoah played NYC on 12/20 at Lit Lounge with Dutchguts and State Graves (ex-Easter).

Phantom Glue welcomed their self-titled debut via Teenage Disco Bloodbath Records earlier this year. The Kurt-Ballou-produced effort maintains his patented crunch. It falls somewhere between High On Fire and hardcore on bruisers like "Brainbow" and "Phantom Glue" - both songs that are downloadable above and streaming below.

If we simply stop talking about these bands: they will stop playing music, fade away, and get dayjobs in Bushwick.

I would love a Bushwick day-job.

No they would be lost without regurgitating what they heard or saw so they couldn't produce tangible goods.

Wow the positivity is here suffocating.

Love that guy's guitar tone - songs would be more compelling with more of an operatic vocal delivery, or at least an emo-ish Hetfield-type.

We are talking about people who play, and the fans who enjoy, "metal."
In the year 2010.
The joke is on anybody who plays it, or is a fan of said "genre."
Sorry PBR dude. You are that pathetic soul wondering if the chain on his wallet looks too 1970s. No, it looks pathetically 2010.
