Got disinterested attending the Opeth/Mastodon/Ghost show two weeks ago. When I walked over to the venue box office to buy a ticket on the way to the Decibel Magazine show, the attendant mentioned that they moved the venue to a smaller venue with reverb issues. It was the same place I saw Opeth last time and wasn't too pleased with the audio issues then.

On the upside, the Meshuggah/Baroness show has been moved to a better venue. I'm reconsidering going to that gig now too.

I'm hearing that the new Baroness double-LP is an interesting listen from others (primarily Lars Gotrich at NPR).

BTW, a friend dropped the Lord Mantis "Pervertor" album on me. It's pretty good. Worth checking out.

I wonder if it's a mix of the short, punchy songs found on the Blue Record and the long, sprawling epics from the Red Record and back?

Loving the massively diverse and not-so-metal Baroness album. The chorus melody for "Take My Bones Away" hasn't left my head for days.

They must be following Torche's lead as heard on Harmonicraft.

I heard from a trusted source that Ghost has some folks from In Solitude and death/thrash band Repugnant. Those guys from In Solitude must have had a really busy schedule with the Decibel Magazine tour and opening for the Mastodon/Opeth tour as well. Having the masks on may perhaps be a benefit so a revolving cast of players can substitute for each other.

Just found out that Agalloch will be playing at The Crocodile this July. This may be the chance to finally see them. Must have to wait for tickets to go on-sale still.

Nice!

I picked up some black metal reissues from Profound Lore. Tukaaria's "Raw to the Rapine" and Odz Manouk's self-titled.

Both are the really raw kind of west coast black metal.

I always thought The Midwest was the epicenter of the American Black Metal movement. I guess that has shifted to San Francisco now? I can see the shift in the Bay Area though since it used to be the Thrash movement's hotbed. The evolution took 20+ years to ferment...or decay in this case.

Hmm... Interesting. For the brief time that I've been listening to metal, I've always thought the USBM scene was heavily centered on the west coast. Though not necessarily confined to a specific city or state.

Must be all those articles at Decibel magazine, but personal observation saw it as such.

Anyway, I was surprised that the Southern Lord summer package tour is different from Power of The Riff. And speaking of POTR, they've got their own Facebook page:

Picked up the 2CD/1DVD box set version of Watain's Opus Diabolus. It would've been nice to get the vinyl set which had the picturebook and postcards, but I think the second printing for that box will take a while.

Oh! How is it?

Found out (probably forgot) that Marduk, 1349, Withered, and Weapon are playing here on Sat. night. I should go.
