Forty Winters and Friends Return to Orlando Tomorrow Night! by orlandooom407

Wednesday heaviness continues on into February of 2012 tomorrow night with Forty Winters, A Fight For Life, In Reference to A Sinking  Ship, Abdomen Canvas and Wavedash Through the Onslaught.

Most of our regular readers know exactly why I have my hands in this show despite that it’s populated by a genre of music I ardently loathe in most cases. To those who don’t, I FUCKING LOVE FORTY WINTERS. Hate if you will, but I’ll retort any hatred with my review of their 2011 LP.

Still not convinced? Check it:

These dudes are pissed, and they aren’t afraid to convey this anger with a half time riff or two. Fans of The Red Chord, Thick as Blood and Despised Icon will feel right at home mid-pulverization by the FW.

In Reference To A Sinking Ship doesn’t fuck around:

I again will omit my thoughts pertaining to this band’s agenda and lyricism, but musically they’re a tenacious metallic hardcore wrecking crew. Vocalist John Crowder reminds me of the singer from Harm’s Way for multiple different reasons; definitely a plus. The rest of the band performing together provides a buffet of neck fracturing half times, and enough irate focus to take down a pack of rabid elephants. Bare handed.

Local support consists of Abdomen Canvas and Wavedash Through the Super Smash Brothers Allusion. AC is a galloping brutal centric quintet from Orlando, and if you like The Black Dahlia Murder you’ll want to partake in their flavor of modernized deathcore:

Finally we’ve got the Wavedash ballers. These chaps are relatively green, but have been taking some serious dedicated steps into their band’s success:

See you dudes and dude ladies tomorrow. Wednesday’s aren’t dead here in O-town!
