Not being a fan of Angelspit nor too familiar with their songs, I still wanted to see them as I heard they’re like Gwar, everyone has to see them once.
But let’s back it up.
First band was MyParasites from Philadelphia. I kind of felt bad for them. Their music would have been great if they didn’t have a singer or at least a better singer! At the beginning of their show it was like he was singing to a different song and sounded horrible. By the last few songs he finally caught up to the tempo of their friendly industrial beats. Good for him.
Now, let’s talk about Cyanotic from Chicago. They were awesome! Had no idea what to expect. When you hear metal and industrial as influences the result is usually not good. But wow! They blew me away! In fact they should have been the headliners and were worth the price of entry.
This was some serious aggressive industrial with a tinge of drum ‘n’ bass, hardcore, grindcore and insanity. Even without their drummer (couldn’t get through the Canadian border) they played so tight and had every beat of their music honed razor sharp. Great stage presence and made my night! Check them out!
And then came Angelspit all the way from Australia. Every song sounded the same. Same tempo, same drum beat, same bad vocals, boring stage presence. That’s pretty much all I have to say about them. I know….it’s sad but true.
My verdict: Cyanotic rules and Angelspit drools.
Angelspit, Cyanotic, MyParasites
