Hatebreed is and why you should go to this show. The band’s music is intense and brutal, the breakdowns are insane and its mosh is undeniable. And while Hatebreed’s sound has remained fairly consistent during the 16 years the band has been around, the band members have done a good job at keeping things interesting. They play Bogart's with Cannibal Corpse, Unearth, Hate Eternal and Born of Osiris.
Boston’s Ramming Speed are poised to become the next band scrawled on the denim vests of thrashers all over the world and they're playing their first show in Cincinnati. Most bands that play this style limit political statements to hypocritical TV evangelists and Christianity, but Ramming Speed covers issues ranging from xenophobia to the affects of terrorism on Americans’ mindsets and political apathy within the Metal scene. See them at the Blue rock Tavern.
With everyone from metalheads to Hardcore fans and punks wearing flip-up hats, Thrash Metal isn't just experiencing a revival: It's undergoing a renaissance. That's just one of the reasons why Boston's Ramming Speed, with their incredible live shows and mind-blowing guitar work, are poised to become the next band scrawled on the denim vests of thrashers all over the world.
If you're reading this, chances are you know what to expect from this show and are surprised to see it being written about here. If that's the case, all you need to know is that the new Hatebreed CD is awesome and there's a hilarious bonus track.
