CROM & VILLIANS in Brooklyn NY

Villains played first. Dudes are a perfect mix of a few styles of aggressive underground metal from Brooklyn NY. I could hear everything from Destructor, Pagan Altars, Poison, and even some Venom at parts. One of my favorite bands I've seen in years. The drummer was a fucking left handed mad man. Total True metal in 2008 without it being cheesy, and with members knowing exactly what what they are doing, and what they want to sound like. I Picked up the "Drenched in the poisons" LP on Nuclear war now last night, shit is amazing. This is the kind of stuff I'd put out in a heart beat if given the chance.
Crom are sick, drunk and sloppy(and from California). Perfectly blending metal and powerviolence antics That kept me bobbing my head throughout the entire set. Lots of beer being spilled, , lots of Slayer riffs, lots of silliness indeed. Both the bands LPs are filled with tons of samples, loops, and metal fun that of course didn't happen live. If they could figure out how to do this, or I'd seen it, I'd be 100% stoked on them live. Glad I saw them, the new LP rules..
