Other medias do Throwback Thursdays. But Enslain… well, we do Throw-up Sundays. Classy, I know.
After a weekend of heavy metal [and heavy boozing], our corpses have little strength for much more than being slothful Sunday slugs, but we’ve conceived of a way to come together to the Enslain waterbed office as a grumpy group of gremlins – which I will call the “Spew Crew” – and hate on songs we’ve (mostly) never heard before. Sorta like an acrimonious levyraati.
The first time was by accident. Having no energy to even choose albums to listen to, I played my personalized Spotify Discover Weekly playlist, only to learn that most of it was detestable, derivative dog droppings [or perhaps everything just kinda sounds that way when you have a moody, melancholy hangover]. Normally, I only like to publish content that promotes music that’s worth being heard, but… this idea was just too fun! And since the comments and the reviewers are anonymous, we’re safe to say whatever we damned well please. You’re welcome. Sorry.
A week ago, a handful of us Enslainers had a planning session [otherwise known as “we drank beer”] at Enslain Headquarters, and we noticed that a curious and relevant musical affair was being held early that Wednesday evening; curious because it was apparently occurring at a “squat” somewhere nearby, and relevant because several friends (crust punk pummellers Pelkotila from Helsinki, and powerviolence à la Tallinn-based Sociasylum) would be performing at the event. We collectively decided that it sounded just peculiar enough to warrant our interests… and it was BYOB, so it wasn’t much different than what we were doing prior!
Those who missed Sadistic Intent’s show at last year’s Steelfest were lucky enough to have the opportunity to see the band in town again. The small but great venue Kuudes Linja hosted both Obscure Burial from Turku and Sadistic coming all the way from Los Angeles.
LET’S END OUR CAREER WITH WELL-KNOWN CLASSICS, NEWER SONGS AND AN OCTOPUS-PRINT GUITAR.
One of the first gigs of 2017 was at the same time the last gig for Amoral. After being active for over twenty years, the band ended their journey in the metal scene – but ended it in a spectacular way!
