Baptists: Fire & Brimstone
Lest we think that Baptists are the first in a new wave of furious crusty-hardcore bands that follow the ways of Jesus, think again. Quite the contrary in fact, the Vancouver killing machine's in-your-face attitude and propulsive punk fury indicates the staunchest of negativity and ill will towards man. After a 7" that dropped last year via Southern Lord, the crew is back with a new full length in Bushcraft, via the label. Stream "Think Tank Breed" below for the first time and order your copy of the Kurt Ballou-enhanced LP at Southern Lord.
Unfortunately, Baptists have no tour dates to speak of. Until then, brush up on the band with the streams below.
"Pentagram was very solid last night. Too bad the crowd was a bunch of hipsters with no respect." -graveyarns
"A lot of dudes with a Hipster Metal Parking Lot look at the Pentagram show. Might need to trip some of them." -Mr. Dave Hill
Pentagram @ Mezzanine (by Taylor Keahey)
"The headliners for the Power of the Riff fest were none other than doom legends Pentagram. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from them as Victor Griffin hasn't been in the band for a long long time and they've had a revolving door of musicians for quite some time now. Also, I wasn't very into their latest comeback album Last Rites, so I was a tad skeptical I would enjoy their performance. The one thing I did know was that I was more than ready for Victor to lay down some serious doom riffage. They opened with new song Treat Me Right off their latest and right away sounded fantastic. Bobby Liebling's voice has certainly held up over the years and he was belting out classics like Relentless, Forever My Queen and All Your Sins like they were going out of style. Victor's evil riffs rained down upon the crowd who eagerly lapped them up and were thirsting for more after each song. For the encore they came out with The Ghoul before finishing with two more before letting the audience catch their breath. As for my skepticism, it was smashed to bits and a serious appreciation for what they've meant to doom and metal in general was cemented in me with their performance. I hope Pentagram continues on down the dark path for a while more...." [ILSYDHT]The Power of The Riff "tour" has now come to a close after a pair of dates in Seattle at Neumo's on 8/18 and The Highline on 8/20. You saw pictures from the Los Angeles show and from Elbo Room in San Francisco. Now here is a set of pics from the third west coast date which took place at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on August 16th with Aeges, Baptists, Early Graves, Masakari, John Cobbett, Alpinist, Pelican, and Pentagram. They continue below.
Pentagram is now touring the East Coast with Jeff The Brotherhood and Valient Thorr. That tour hit Le Poisson Rouge last night with ELKS. Pictures from that NYC show are on the way. Meanwhile check out Power of the Riff below...
