the one time I've been to Edwards, the sound was fucking atrocious, easily the worst I've heard - and I'v ebeen to gigs in the Music Box ;) - couldn't hear a thing any of the bands were doing...

Sucks about Blasphemy. Sure I never attended all the gigs but the ones I did attend were great. The problem for me was that despite the difference in distance, it's actually easier to get to Camden than it is to Croydon on public transport, especially after work.

It's gay because it really felt like things were on the up with the unity under the UKDM banner etc, now it's just reverted to everyone for themselves.

yeah as for the whole myspace thing it seems to create more cliquey little groups bumming each other than unifying DM.

Edit: got any more brutal interviews coming up?

In short

Unmerciful were fucking killer as were Decrepit Birth and Detrimentum. Emeth were alright but i thought they sounded very thin in comparison to the other bands, grind inc were really good, and i just chilled in bar for Cryptopsy but i did not hear anyone complain and they sounded good but i not really a fan so cant comment, did not see infestation or brainchoke & prejudice did not play.

Unmerciful were intense, brutal, and tight as fuck. They totally owned.

Decrepit Birth played the best performance I've seen by any band ever. I was into their set on a level high above any other band I've seen, it was quite an experience lol.

Emeth were a bit of a let down, kinda weak, probably a bad gig for them.

I only caught the very end of Detrimentum as I arrived late due to working, sounded tight as ever though.

Didn't watch Cryptopsy.

Bsically, as R.O.I. said.
Unmerciful were my fave band of the day and Detrimentum were the best of the early bands, honourable mentions for Decrepit Birth and Grind Inc. Emeth are kind of like a light version of old Aborted stuff, to me, they did a Pantera cover too.
Cryptopsy stayed away from poncey new stuff, I did recognise 'slit your guts' from 'none so vile', one of my fave tracks by them. Prejudice pulled out, so set times got switched about a little, but every band got a decent amount of time to play.

Thanks for the write-ups. Here's what a friend of mine wrote:

Quote:
Went in at about 4pm and Infestation were towards the end of their set. Very ordinary. So that meant I missed Brainchoke and Detrimentum, who I wouldn't have minded seeing in retrospect.

First band proper then were Emeth, who had some serious kick drum trigger issues, regardless the crowd reacted well until they decided to commit suicide by performing a cover of Pantera's "Strength Beyond Strength". The floor emptied when they did that. Their set was mainly from the latest album - dull. They only did one track from the 2nd album but did do a couple from the debut, which actually sounded really good. Real shame about their choice of set.

Next up was Grind Inc who were so so ordinary, but got a really good reception. Unmerciful followed and ruled IMO. I was down the front and to be honest the sound was shit, but I had an unrestricted view of Clint Appelhanz's playing. Their vocalist is a really good front man too. They did their Suffocation "Catatonia" cover too!

Decrepit Birth were also very good. Their sound was tops and they had a 2nd guitarist who was also excellent. Their vocalist is a decent front man also, and KC Howard really is an awesome drummer. Set was balanced between 1st and 2nd album, and they covered Suffocation's "Liege of Inveracity"!

Then Cryptopsy. No Keyboardist. New vocalist was average. I was right in the front again so couldn't really hear him properly. Had an unimpinged view of Alex Auburn which was another treat. Set was pretty short, and was pretty good until the last 3 songs when it turned great - "Slit your Guts", "Cold Hate Warm Blood", and the encore of "Phobophile" were all fucking awesome, and vocalist aside, the rest of the band were shit hot!

So all in all 3 decent sets from the bands that mattered most.
