Well, this was just a hard hitting sick as hell show and tour, with just a brutal lineup of metal and thrash. Well, back to Soundstage for some metal mayhem. Up 1st was BLACKBRAID from the Adirondack Mountains of NY who were just sick. Featuring Jon Krieger BLACKBRAID just played a set of dark / evil metal with sort of a tribal feel. Jon Krieger was like a metal medicine man casting a spell of black metal. the band haunting sound gave off a CRADLE OF FILTH, MAYHEM feel with a dose of black / folk metal. The set included songs like… the spirit returns, the river of time flows through me, and more. Love to find out more on this band. Next were 200 STAB WOUNDS from Cleveland, Ohio who just kicked out some brutal shedding metal with just an insane feel of speed metal, hard rock, blk metal, death metal, and horror metal this band just got sick like VOMIT FORTH, GATECREEPER, The pit went nuts over these guys, plus the one guy in the band wore a MENTORS style hood for extra points. Well, 200 STAB WOUNDS just kicked out the mayhem on such songs as…. fatal reality, skin milk, itty bitty pieces, and more. Fuck Yeah! time for CATTLE DECAPITATION who just tore it up with some brutal, raw, powerful grinding death metal that was full of rage and pure raw power. Well, this San Diego band featuring the powerful vocals of Travis Ryan who is just a madman on vocals. Well, Cattle Decapitation just ripped out some metal terror and old supporting the record ” Terrasite” 2023 out on Metal Blade Records. But Cattle Decapitation just played a set of extreme metal that was full of mayhem. The powerful set included songs like… the carbon stampede, we eat our young, finish them, bring back the plague, and more. Well, fans of extreme bands BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SUFFOCATIION, PIG DESTROYER will love this band as well. Just pure sick metal with a destroy it all feel. Closing out the night of metal madness were the dark / evil ones from Stockholm Sweeden DARK FUNERAL. Well, DARK FUNERAL who been at it since 83′ were amazing. Featuring original member Lord Ahriman on guitar and singer Heljarmadr on vocals since 2014. Well, DARK FUNERAL are out supporting the 2022 record “Apocalypse out Century Media just played a killer set of dark, evil, scary as Hell metal of just sweet and evil dark death metal that also had a theatrical side as well. But, DARK FUNERAL played a great set that included such 666 blasphemy anthems as…. nosferatu, hail murder, my funeral, goddess of sodomy, let the devil in, and more. Well, DARK FUNERAL reminded me of bands like… King Diamond, Cradle OF Filth, Mayhem, just a bad ass sinful show. (BW)

1st off thanks going out to the OTTO BAR staff, GBH, MDC for helping out a lot love this club and these bands. Up 1st was LUXURY TEETH from Baltimore, MD featuring Dave Homeowner on vocals from the band COPSTABBER just played a strong set of punk rock.
