Salome

Salome

The first night of the Salome / Landmine Marathon madness struck Union Pool last night (7/13), leaving a wake of overheated bodies and bruised/unprepared mosh casualties in it's path. The show saw the return of Wetnurse, who have been hiding as of late while the band works out new material and 40% of the band concentrates on performing as new members of Today Is The Day. Some of that new material, albeit in instrumental form, surfaced at the show and definitely shows potential.

Landmine Marathon primed the fourth pit that I have witnessed at the venue (the others being Skeletonwitch, Krallice last year, and Misery Index / Magrudergrind), with vocalist Grace personally instigating one of those. Salome were beyond brutal, showcasing a few new songs in their set.

The madness continues with Batillus (No Cleanteeth or Wetnurse) on Thursday (7/15) at Cake Shop, but until then, bear witness to the Union Pool show in pictures and video below...
