Uga Buga/Blazoner/Heemeyer

The Southern Café and Music Hall On a cold Saturday night in Charlottesville, VA, three heavy bands hit the stage at one of the region’s best venues.

Blazoner – Escape to Electric Land

Blazoner is a three-piece band hailing from Fredericksburg, Virginia. One thing that is immediately noticeable is that all three members provide vocals, putting them in a category not often used; vocal Power Trio. This allows for some very interesting voice usage, including harmonic and dissonant themes where they use cleans to offset grit and distortion. Blazoner weaves through many styles and genres, including, but not limited to, Doom, Heavy, Thrash, and Melodic Metal. Heavy riffing is bolstered with equally heavy rhythms that wrap around the electrifying vocals to create a sonic wave that will wash over you and leave you waiting for the next wave to bring another crash of audible heaviness.

Vision Master – Sceptre

Vision Master is two guys going wild and having some fun while creating a combination album. There are serious elements of Classic Metal woven together with Power, NWOBHM, and even Death Metal. Fast guitars are matched by thundering drums and the vocals go from gritty to guttural with unrelenting ferocity. Just in case you like impossible feats, there is a guitar duel on “Arc Terminal X” that will drop your jaw. Some passages feel almost like Doom Metal, you know, for that brief respite between blazing solos and frenetic rhythms. This is one of those albums that passes over, through, and around genres and styles without blinking an eye, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Originally formed as a Pop Rock act, the first two members recruited members with different ideas, creating what you hear now, a heavier tone with  Continue Reading »

Meurtrières – Ronde De Nuit

Meurtrières has a way of pointing out that the more things change, the more they stay the same. If that is not a Punk attitude, I don’t know what is. I’m glad I got to revisit this band. I hope they keep going for a long time to come as they have the ability to use history to teach current events. There is something to be said about that. Maybe they’re trying to tell us “those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.”
