Sat 30 Oct – The Decibel Defiance Tour 2010
As I expected, this ended up being a pretty awesome show. I arrived around 4 to see some of the local bands opening the show. Unfortunately, I didn't know who all of the bands were beforehand. As I walked in the second band was setting up. I read their name on the lineup at the box office and knew this was going to be a disaster. I Hear They Burn for Murder had the absolute worst guitar tone I've ever heard. Their vocalist did mostly pig squeals with some high pitched screams thrown in. They played a lot of breakdowns in the one song I sat through before deciding to go take a walk outside. I was very thankful that the Glasshouse allows re-entry. Otherwise I might have killed myself before I saw any of the bands I came for.
Next up was Invection
, a retro thrash band from Oakland. I can't stand most of the retro thrash bands out there, but I have a soft spot for Invection. Their new EP is actually pretty decent. …
