A couple of years back Iron Man came to town for All That Is Heavy and made quite an impression, not only winning over fans but making a bunch of fans on the local metal scene. Naturally Jenn Bradshaw invited then back for the latest round of All That Is Heavy. This edition rounded out the bill with a trio of local acts; Muffler Crunch and Loviatar make regular National Capital Rock Appearances, while Longhouse is new on the scene. They went on first. This was also an album-release show for their Mike Bond-recorded debut Earth From Water, a very High On Fiery slab. Here's bassist Joshua.
And so on!
On to Loviatar, back on stage after a bit of a break from live performance.
Bendy blue action!
Mike Bond handles the low end.
The whole lot!
It feels like a long while since I've seen Muffler Crunch live - February 2014, if the blog is to be trusted. I'm going to try to see them a little more frequently than once a year because they always put on a killer show.
Iron Man, mighty Maryland titans of doom, were in town for the 2012 edition of All That Is Heavy; this time around they got to headline. In the intervening years they also were signed by Relapes and released South Of The Earth. Here's main man Albert Morris III.
Lawrence handles the low end.
As before Screaming Mad Dee was in great form.
Manos Cornudo action!
Rhythm section action!
A great night of music.
