Ilsa – Intoxicantations by orlandooom407

Watch out for them golden tiger eyeballs. I hear looking deeply into them instills an unexplainable feelings of subservience leading you into it’s maw for din din. An Intoxicantation never seen before until spewed forth at the hands of DC’s ILSA. Amidst the squealing feed back wearing a cap that reads ‘fuck you’ germinates the masterful creeping pace attributed to any classic death-doom hybrid record. What sets Ilsa apart from bands like Hooded Menace or Atriarch is their uncanny ability to utilize the hardcore punk tangent. Just when you feel the mist rising to meander from the coffin, they’ll kick the damn thing open catching a smog ridden tailwind resulting in an all out down beat sprint to the finish line. The finish line would probably be best described as a carefully assembled row of frothing tiger skulls. I want to bring most of my praise to the 8th track entitled “Fluid Bound”. This just over five minute behemoth of a track encompasses the sheer vigor of riff refraining. It cruises, it bruises and  ignites gasoline soaked mosh fuses.

Intoxicantations will be released November 23rd on A389 Records

General Surgery – Like An Ever Flying Limb by orlandooom407

This is a good place to start where we left off.” Even the opening sound clip summarizes the fresh 5 tracks of brutalizing goregrind released by Swedish Death Metalists General Surgery. With exception of their choice cuts-esque best of A Collection of Depravation, it’s been three years since a new General Surgery track has melted membranes. Although there’s only 5 new tunes on this, these doctors of radical medicine have no problem severing limbs and cauterizing the wounds. I was lucky enough to see the macabre surgeons perform some of the best surgery I’ve ever seen at Brutal Assault 13. When they decided unleash a new technique to their operation. Like an Ever Flying Limb was played live and loud and consequently sent the crowd into a ravenous frenzy. With their signature sound, a bloody mix of Carcass meets Swedish Death, new General Surgery was what everyone should’ve expected: Brutally Fuckin’ Awesome.

Swamp Abyss Sorcery Fest – Saturday 10/13 @ BACKBOOTH by orlandooom407

Salutations readers. Our inactivity ends today. I went over to the fuse box this morning, flipped the switch and proceeded to breath in the gaseous dusty internet tumbling through the air. Not only has the blog been resuscitated, but we plan to begin hosting shows in Central Florida once again starting in December. I think all ya’ll will find yourselves presently surprised at the lineup for our comeback show.

But, before we get ahead of ourselves here’s a much more immediate means to satisfy the heavy appetite. This year, and month in particular, have been rife with new releases from the likes of big leaguers like Converge, Trash Talk and even those sci-fi dorks Between the Buried and Me. I’ve had the pleasure of attending three delicious festivals myself: Maryland Deathfest X, 305 Fest and Scion Rock Fest 2012. If you buy all this apocalypse garbage I’d say this year would qualify as a grand finale for any heavy enthusiast. Now, Orlando, yet again, gets to throw in to this gargantuan pile thanks to Ninety Proof Productions. Hopefully this next image jogs some memories:

If you haven’t snagged this yet, do your ears the favor. This compilation offers tracks from the best in Floridian extreme metal bar none. While the upcoming fest doesn’t feature every single band included there’s inarguable representation. Fast, slow, you name it you’ll hear it. Orlando’s representation includes the blackened humidity of Fire In The Cave, the tombstone ridden deathdoom hypnosis of Druid Lord and the apocalyptic doom country anthems of Hollow Leg. The Miami hat trick of Shroud Eater, Holly Hunt, and Orbweaver stand to stake their claim as our unconditionally loved cousins of the glades. Don’t forget St. Petersburg and Gainesville either, represented by the drunken metal punks flyingsnakes and midnight (pun intended) riders Hot Graves. Click the flier above for more details and some gut busting comments.

Now, one last order of business. We are actively accepting sample submissions for writers who want to contribute. If that sounds like you please contact Orlandooom407@gmail.com for more details.

Don’t forget you can always keep up with us on FACESPACE and TWATTER (@Orlandooom).

See ya’ll Saturday.

Scion Rock Fest Set Times Chart (IN COLOR)! by orlandooom407

Scion Rock Fest kicks off tomorrow at 2PM EST in Tampa, Florida. We all couldn’t surpass our current state of elation if we tried. Here’s a handy colorful chart, created by Floridian West Coast native Chris Elmore, to help you in breaking up your evening. Orlandooom contributors and friends are sure to litter to floors of The Rtiz, Czar Bar and The Orpheum. I don’t know about everyone else, but there’s no way I’d miss The Atlas Moth, Sleep, Witch Mountain, Church of Misery or Saint Vitus. Might dip out during Down to catch a peek at Merzbow to complete the day’s sonic overload. Here’s Scion A/V Metal‘s graphical running order too:

MetalGF Reviews Meshuggah & Baroness Live by endlessgonzo

Cross posting this because it’s always nice to see a show review, and especially one from someone not normally into metal.

   When I first arrived I thought every guy was Vince. They all had his uniform on and I literally went to hug one or two bearded fellows before stopping myself just in time. I didn’t think Vince had a “Battlestar Galactica” t-shirt! Wait, I was right, he doesn’t have that shirt BECAUSE THAT’S NOT HIM! I just went to kiss a stranger who I now realize looks like a modern version of our 16th President. This is a sea of white men in black t-shirts like the (non-metal) world has never seen. There are no girls, no black people and no items of colored clothing in sight. I stick out like a sore thumb in my white bohemian top and blatant womanhood.

 

   You know how at every show there is the one super psyched guy? He or she is always a row or two in front of me feeling the music in their deepest of souls and moving their bodies in a way only they understand. I remember I went to an Indigo Girls concert in the 1990s and there was a hundred pound girl dancing and singing and yelling with an enthusiasm known only to the superfan. Well, at Meshuggah superfans were everywhere. They are such a loved band. I had the feeling people had been waiting for this night for weeks, maybe months.
