The minute these guys hit the stage, one thing came to my mind: "I hope these guys sound as good as they look".
When I'm out looking to see a live band, I don't care what their genre is, I want to be entertained. I want to be moved, and pushed off the edge of my seat. I want to be forced out of my chair. AND MOST OF ALL, I WANT THAT BAND TO BE SO F*#@ING GOOD THAT I DON'T EVEN WANT MY FRIENDS TO TRY AND TALK TO ME.
I gotta say, I got all of this with BRING US YOUR DEAD when I caught their set at BREAKERS LOUNGE in Grande Prairie on Jan 24th. This hard-hitting deathcore metal band from Edmonton was exactly what I needed. I've got to say I've been getting tired of the SSDD bands, where everyone's in Walmart jeans, a plaid shirt, a touque, and a beard that's grown into the creepy zone. When these guys walked in, my hopes went up. I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of metal. But if it's done well I can appreciate it. However, this band had me loving their show. BRING US YOUR DEAD has incredible audience engagement, a killer vocalist, and they carried themselves like their show meant everything to them.
Anyone dishing out the $15 cover charged to see these guys: your money was well spent! I would go out of my way to see these guys again!
