Nashgul, Marrow, Total Fucking Destruction, Casket Philly Gallery

Nashgul - band live at Millcreek Tavern in PhiladelphiaSpain’s horror-film-worshiping grind practitioners, Nashgul, blasted through Philadelphia’s Millcreek Tavern last week with tour mates Marrow and special gusts Total Fucking Destruction and Casket. This show marks the last of the off-shoot Maryland Deathfest X Tours we’ll be featuring, as another stellar year of rare one-offs surrounding the US’s biggest and most legendary metal party comes to a close.

Local death metal ensemble, Casket, got things moving early with their infectious blend of cathartic riff offerings. It was a busy week for this local wrecking crew, as they also supported another MDF off-shoot bill with Ghoul last week. The band is reportedly wrapping up recording sessions for an unnamed forthcoming release. We’ll keep an eye out.

Local grind titans, Total Fucking Destruction hit the stage with a vengeance with drummer-extraordinaire Richard Hoak (Brutal Truth) screaming into his kit mics. This is a band that never skimps on sheer technical voracity that mesmerizes as much as it invigorates the audience. It’s hard to know whether to start tossing friends in the pit or just stare and soak in this technical extravaganza. Guitarist Dan O’Hare and bassist Ryan Moll share a musical passion with Hoak that presents a unique spin on the grindcore game. The riffs vary from incredibly fast, complicated, and dense, to segues that are driving and rocking. Tons of quirky lyrics and tongue-in-cheek contexts kept smiles on the faces of the crowd, as the band continues to support its latest full-length, Hater. Total Fucking Destruction never disappoints and is highly recommended for any fans of the genre.

Nashgul - US Tour 2012Spain’s Nashgul hit the stage next and proceeded to just pummel the sound system with a set that showcased the band’s old-school grind approach that is as engaging as it is unrelenting. The multi-layered vocal attack runs the gambit from high-end and ear-shredding, to low, sub-bass guttural growls to compliment a set of musicians that offer a diverse selection of approaches. The incorporation of d-beats, driving double bass, and metal, into a whirlwind package of punk-tinged grindcore keeps the band’s set fresh throughout. It was apparent that Nashgul were having a most excellent time, still riding high from a performance at MDF X, as the ferocious sound was tempered with warm smiles and posi-vibes from this radical grind band.

Baltimore’s Marrow closed out the evening with an eclectic blend of crusty metal that was a perfect fit for the bill. Lots of tasty variations in speed and delivery, complimented by a southpaw drummer who had the chops to match. Here is another East Coast band to keep an eye on as they support a recent split with Machatezo with some killer artwork by renowned gore artist,Putrid.
