Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

This month I wanted to offer a little more depth into the metal offerings during Fun Fun Fun Fest happening at Auditorium Shores this weekend. ACL Fest was decidedly not metal, and that’s acceptable, but FFF has always offered a little more variety, including this year’s second appearance of the mighty Slayer! The festival proper is spending more focus on punk rock at the sacrifice of metal compared to years past, but I wanted to include some of the bands playing the ‘Nites’ this year in my playlist this month.

Many of the bands who just couldn’t fit on the rearranged stage setup this year have been forced into the club circuit for late night shows after the festival shuts down, but still included with the price of admission to FFF8. Local metal bands The Pushmen, Eagle Claw and national acts like Black Tusk, Inter Arma and Coliseum are just a few of the bands you need to check out this year, and support the metals. Have a great festival!

:August Burns Red – Internal Cannon:
:The Locust – Full Frontal Obscurity:
:Black Tusk – Set The Dial To Your Doom:
:Tenacious D – Dio:
:Body Count – Body Count’s In The House:
:Slayer – Raining Blood:
:Coliseum – Everything To Everyone:
:Quicksand – Baphomet:
:Eagle Claw – Ophidian:
:Pushmen – Blaze Some More Hate:
:Gojira – L’Enfant Sauvage:
:Inter Arma – Sblood:

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

I am not a festival guy, and right now everyone around me keeps yelling about how they can’t wait to see some crappy band at ACL Fest the next couple weekends, and I couldn’t care less. The influx of idiots to the downtown area the next couple of weekends will be great for our city, its economy, but destroys any sense of decorum that may be left in our music scene. Thousands of people who could give two shits about music any other time of the year pretending like they ‘enjoy music’ lumping all the darlings of the now into one show that they could never consume does nothing to make me think you love music.

The only fest that I actually enjoy is Fun Fun Fun Fest, and that is really due to the fact that the people who attend don’t care about that radio hit song from Fun, but really want to hear the Cro Mags, or _____ *insert band that the masses have never heard of. Plus, ACL Fest never once thought about a metal band in their lineup, to their credit, it is not their crowd. So the following is a nice list of FFF Black Stage bands this year, and a few covers from metal bands of artists playing ACL. Enjoy your Festival, I will be holed up until the end of the month.

:August Burns Red – Count It All As Lost:
:The Locust – Aotkpta:
:Between The Buried And Me – Little 15:
:Slayer – Disciple:
:Body Count – Evil Dick:
:Quicksand – Thorn In My Side:
:Creamatory – Black Celebration:
:Pelican – Ephemeral:
:Faith No More – Easy:
:Gojira – Mouth Of Kala:
