Lots of hard choices to make this week. Look past the break to hear about Prog Nation and some bands that should have made the adds list…
So I saw Progressive Nation when they hit San Jose last week. I would have preferred a better venue than the civic center. Kinda felt like I was going to a High School graduation… But the show was good. Or what I saw of it at least.. Me and Bisquick (who you guys will get to hear on air coming this fall) were dumbasses and forgot to check to see what time it started. It started at 6, we weren’t there till 7:15 ish… We missed Scale the Summit and Big Elf but we got to see Dweezil Zappa Plays Zappa and Dream Theater of course. I was really bummed about missing out on Scale the Summit..
1 ANGHER Hidden Truth Dark Star – Started by a cellist/guitarist. I love classical instruments!
2 DIRGE WITHIN Force Fed Lies E1 – A dirge is a somber song expressing mourning or grief, such as would be appropriate for performance at a funeral.
3 3 INCHES OF BLOOD Here Waits Thy Doom Century Media – They will be touring with Between the Buried and Me for the release of BTBAM’s new cd. In Flames will be there as well. Go see it. You won’t be sorry.
4 BLACK ANVIL Time Insults The Mind Relapse – They have a song called 777… I think they did their math wrong..
5 LEFT SETTER Left Setter – Listen to them. They are pretty kewl.
Honorable mention for Street Legal. Check out their myspace.
