It’s me again, Nikki Knight your reviewer of all underground local music from both my home towns Sacramento CA and Richmond. When I’m not being sent to shows I like to go on my own and support my local bands just like I did back home in California. This time in my Coast to Coast review we will he discussing a hardcore power/memeviolence band and a slam band of apes that would slam you into oblivion.
The aggression and the high voltage energy of Grindcore and Power violence, Slam Metal has been a big part of what attracts me to go see shows. D Beat blasts, and thrashy crowd killing riffs and all the different mixes punk and metal and thrash an in a fascinating way. Yes both are similar and both are different but in all the same the pits kick your ass! Well this time I’m here to bring you the best from Sac and RVA
Now these kids are very dear to my heart. When I first started booking shows, I was in awe of their filthy and offensive lyrics, their extreme, aggressive sound and the sheer insanity, they bring to any show they are on, made me proud to be their punk Mama. Alcoholic Sex Detonation. They are memeviolence and powerviolence and they are fucked up. They induce a riot like pit, that hurdles people into walls, and have people laughing due to the silliness and the depravity in their song titles and jokes. Their Lyrics are pretty messed up to but in just the right way. Their sound is amazing! Perfect vocals awesome riffs, and killer drums that may or may not split you in two. Their album It’s Not Rape If It’s Dead is one of my all time favorites. Not only do they have a great sound, but they have hilarious sound bites and skits, that can make you shit yourself if your not prepared. unfortunately they have been on hiatus. Still check out their facebook page and bandcamp so you can experience the awesomeness of ASD.
Now in RVA, we have an outbreak of killer apes that love to SLAM. BananaSlama is a band of 4 apes that somehow possess the power of slam metal. Their hardcore slam sound, crushes you as these apes scream, growl and make monkey noise. They speak English but sing in Simeon, but the music is killer, the monkey vocals are powerful and funny at the same time. You should not miss a live show, because they tear it up more than King Kong tears up a city.
