Fiends At Feast, Grievance, Tlazolteotl, & A Thousand Shall Fall @ Hangmans Oak Saturday 9/20/14
Blackened Death Metal
Striking a luciferian bargain between black and death metal, Fiends at Feast sound like the hellish, gruesome aftermath of a street fight between Deicide and Marduk. The commanding, vicious vocals are a hateful diatribe against the feeble Nazarene, while the razor-wire guitars slash at his wrists and the rhythm section smashes his skull to smithereens. This is not the monotonous, over-produced faux-extreme metal that gets shoved down our throats on a daily basis. This is the real shit, the shit that makes you remember what you liked about black/death metal in the first place. It’s rough and hungry and reeks of a band putting their blood, sweat and even more blood into mastering their craft. -Josh Haun
Divergent, uncompromising, and absolutely punishing; Santa Cruz, California’s “A Thousand Shall Fall” stand poised to continue what they have done for years. Create music untethered to the whims of labels, magazines, or blogs. To create metal that is unafraid to experiment, to enjoy itself, and to humiliate the inadequacy of environment. “A Thousand Shall Fall” greeted 2013 with the release of “In the Shadow of the Mighty,” they continue their growth and evolution in 2014 with the release of “Horizon.” Having recently wrapped production of their latest release the band is currently hard at work cementing tour plans and crafting the band’s first full length album for 2015.
