Here's the last post for the Arm Your Desires fest from the 3rd day of extreme drinking and musical destruction! It was a killer day and everyone partied fuckin' hard! First on stage were Dyspnea,a dark crust band from the rainy mountains of Tyrnavos! Even though they had some serious sound problems (an almost burned out guitar amp and electricity problems) they put on a great show and they sounded way better than the last time I saw them! Old-school crust attack! Next were Hibernation,if you're not familiar with this band then there's something wrong with you! It's the oldest Greek crust band that is still active and they never disapoint live! They played some new tracks,that I might add that they were great,in the vein of their older material,and all of the classics! I hope they have plans for a new release soon! Next,if I remember correctly,were Schizogony,a brutal death band from Athens. I took no pictures of them 'cause I had some drinks and a chat with some friends I haven't seen for awhile.It was typical brutal death metal and to say the truth I don't like this style at all but who cares what I think! Moving on,next were Απέχθεια (Aversion).I had heard good things about them and I was very curious to finally see them play live.I was fuckin' blown out! Disclose/Mob 47 worship all the way! Ultra noizy distorted guitar,bass that resembles the sound your head makes when you hit the concrete pavement and drums that hit you like a fuckin' A-bomb!!! Even the guitarist's voice sounds like Kawakami's! Keep it up fuckers! Terrorismo Musical were next,they play raw crust/gore/grind and their lyrics have a clear political leaning which I like that,unlike most bands of this genre that only write songs about blood and rotten meat! Anyway,after a couple of songs the one guitar amp blown out and they had to continue with only one guitar which was a real shame 'cause they have a fat and distorted sound with both guitars that's great.But they didn't disapoint even with one guitar! By the way the just released a split 7" with Disturbance Project which is great,check them out! Next were Black Trinity from Thesalonniki,they play old-school black metal like old Mayhem,Sarcofago and Darkthrone! My only complaint is that the drummer needs to exercise his blast-beat and use it all the time! They even played a Mayhem cover! Praise the Dark Lord fuckers! Last were Melanocetus Muray,a harsh noise band also from Thesalonniki,it was clear that they improvised on stage but if you were there your mind would've been destroyed from the ultra distorted howling bass! It can't be described with words! The vocalist made some really creepy screams and screeches that fit the (anti) music perfectly.
After all the bands played a jam session started mostly with grind/noise stuff and I was drunk enough to dance with my friends and forget about the next day and that we had to leave and get back to the miserable routine of everyday life........
Till next time....smash a cop's face!
