HEAVY HOUR (((3))) – Featuring DEAD CONGREGATION, CYANIC & KOMMANDANT
Dead Congregation from Greece are destroyers. This was their first trip out to the West Coast and I was there front and center to circle headbang myself into a near coma and to capture the power of Dead Congregation. They did not disappoint and I can not think of a better band to kick off this edition of the Heavy Hour.
Cyanic from San Jose (Cali) are a pulverizing force of extreme metal. They blend the lines of Death/Black/Grind with incredible precision and definition. Heavy Satanic Death Metal!
Kommandant is a mysterious militia hailing from Chicago. Blurring the lines of Art and Controversy, this band, which is composed of several well-established musicians, borrows themes from War and Boyd Rice while manipulating that general aesthetic into an visceral attack that will leave you talking about them.
