It was hard to pass up this solid trio of experimental, sort–of–but–not–really–metal power trios playing a 10–minute walk from my apartment. No Flowers was up first, and it was actually their first show, even though the band is in the full swing of releasing three.
It was hard to pass up this solid trio of experimental, sort–of–but–not–really–metal power trios playing a 10–minute walk from my apartment. No Flowers was up first, and it was actually their first show, even though the band is in the full swing of releasing three EPs this year (ONE came out in February, TWO in April). They include two ex–members of long–defunct locals There Were Wires and their post–metal spinoff Disappearer, plus one of those dudes currently plays in Doomriders, so you knew this would probably be good. And it definitely was. Not really far off the lane the headliners of this show occupied, it was a genre–less mashup of post–punk and metallic lumbering that was very enjoyable and even catchy at times, played quite tightly for a first gig with enough effects pedals to satiate dynamic–craving nerds like myself. They kept the rock going with minimal breaks during a 20–to–25–minute set. Absolutely a band to keep an eye on.
