Cough at Hardywood Park in Richmond

On Friday, I had the opportunity to catch Cough at their album release show at Hardywood Park Brewery in Richmond. It's been six years since they released a full album, and quite a few years since I last saw them live. I've been playing their latest, Still They Pray, pretty much non-stop, and I gave it a good review over on Metal Bandcamp.

I also got some video of one of my favorite songs on the album, "Haunter of the Dark." Hoping they'll tour and make it back down to Raleigh soon.

Dead Meadow at Pour House

Here are a few shots from Dead Meadow's show on May 10 at The Pour House in Raleigh. Great band, and great show. Was glad to check them out. I haven't been out shooting in a while, and it felt good.

Inter Arma -- "Transfiguration"

Inter Arma's next release, Paradise Gallows, will be out in early July on Relapse. The band recently posted a song from the album, "Transfiguration," on their Bandcamp page. They played at Local 506 on April 8, and opened with that song, which I recorded and posted below. I'm really digging this song, and pretty excited to hear the rest of the release.

Photos and video from Suppressive Fire

Raleigh's Suppressive Fire pull you headfirst into the blood- and flesh-filled trenches with their caustic, nihilistic blackened thrash. Their first full length, "Bedlam," is out now and is definitely worth a listen. Here are some photos and a little video from their album release show, which took place Jan. 14 at Slim's. Old Raleigh death metal group Eldritch Horror, and thrashers Temple Crusher were also on the bill. Videos below from Suppressive Fire and Temple Crusher.
