  • met-uly recap: Minsk, Wolves in the Throne Room, Danava and Graveyard

    Posted on July 16th, 2009 CourvoisierOfSorrow 13,612 comments

    I failed to attend last nights Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth show. I have no excuse for this, and have betrayed metal.

    I did however, make it to the other two shows I wanted to see last night. The first was Minsk and Wolves in the Throne Room at Berbatis.

    Minsk were OK, but not particularly overwhelming. The remind me of Isis or Pelican or one of several other ‘Neurosis Lite’ bands. Worth getting to a show early if they are opening, but I am not sure if I would make the trip out to see them if there were not a more interesting band also on the bill. Maybe it was just an off night for them.

    Wolves in the Throne Room were astounding. They have an incredible live energy that is really hard to describe, and might be lost on people who have only listened to their recordings, where the black metal vocals seem to sit out in front of the music as opposed to taking its rightful place as another instrument in the onslaught of heaviness.

    Since the show was all ages, it ended at 11:59 on the dot, so I ran over to East End where Danava were finishing up their set. I anticipated needing to take a leak in the next half hour, so I got in line and managed to make it through before Graveyard had finished setting up. (The bathroom lines at the East End are truly offensive) I was able to find a decent vantage point by East End standards when Graveyard started, and they put on a really killer show. It was the first show of their US tour and they seemed quite fired up, possibly because of how much cheaper beer is here relative to Sweden. They played every song from their first and only album and a few new ones, wrapping up at around 2:00.

    To sum it all up, if you have never heard Graveyard, check them out. They are not particularly original, just good enough that you don’t care. And go see Wolves in the Throne Room even if you don’t think you like them. The live show they put on will convert you.

    And work sucks whether or not you do something fun the night before, so you might as well go for it.
