Dark Ages breathes like a rabid animal that you’d find tied up in WINO’s backyard. It’s flying V’s, analog perfection, loud and sludgy, played by hairy dudes in denim jackets.
I’m sorry; did they say Flying V’s, loud, hairy dudes and denim jackets??? I can get down with that.
I’ve seen these guys a few times, and every time they blow all the other bands on the bill away. We’re talking about a bangover with an 11 on the richter scale. And they’ve played on some pretty epic bills. And they are total sweethearts.
Quiet Earth so far has been my fave; in fact there’s even a little bow chugging in there too! Wendigo Pt. 1 (Quest For Fire) is an epic 8 minute beautifully brutal bow chugging song. I love it. I hope you do too, although I’ll try not to be offended if you don’t.
These guys are on tour NOW, playing at the Fox Theatre in Oakland tomorrow, Saturday, May 8th. AMAZING venue. Not so amazing line up of bands, (except Black Cobra-they rule too). Here’s a suggestion. Go to the show, buy me the new album and a t-shirt (youth medium please) and I’ll provide you with awesome cookies, sandwiches and love for the rest of your life. OR, you can do me a solid Brokkake and do my final project, write my three research papers, and study for my mid term. In which case, you might get upgraded to ribs, baked bacon goodies, and a head-banging partner for life. It’s up to
(Oh, and say hi to the bros)
