This is where metal is going

You should check out the live footage of the Baroness show from the Bowery Ballroom.  I dig these guys.  Their idea of metal is much closer, I think, to Can than it is to someone like, say, Megadeath.  I think it’s a lot more interesting, this sort of improvisational metal.  However, it can get a little too proggy for me at times, and I get Black Flag cravings. I definitely think it’s sort of a ‘metal-fans-only’ genre, this weird new byzantine jammy metal, but it’s a nice break…
