Deathchants and Military Waltzes
I joined up with Kreblog and two other buddies of mine (one who flew in from Colorado) to see Scissorfight play at the Stone Church in Newmarket.
The opening act, a band called Eyewitness Deathcount, seemed to typify the sound of new death metal one hears on the On-Demand metal music station on the cable. Sure the band mastered the obligatory staccato machine gun riff soundscape necessary to the style, but the lyricist belted out his stuff in a high octave scream which I'm hearing more and more of in today's death metal (high octave screaming as opposed to low octave throaty gutteral dronings). In any case, they didn't play for too long and the other band, Lamont was much better. Then afterwards, Scissorfight took stage and took flight. Man, what a necessary dose of good North American rock & roll asskicking. Hope Kreblog liked it!

You had me worried when the first band came on stage but Scissorfight was awesome.

God damn that drunken hangman,
he's getting wrecked.
Townsfolk they love the hangman,
for breaking necks.
Drinks all day in the tavern,
before the gollows pole.
Out side the crowd has gathered,
for the show.

When you hang.
