Just came back from The Vultures concert.
Eh. What can I say?
Did I enjoy myself? - mediocre.
Was the music any good? - It started out with a few good riffs on a few songs (very Ministry-like), but then went on to make industrial-garbage-noize (but in a bad way). Blah.
The people? - Metal crowd. Not too many familiar faces, but enough to feel comfortable. No moshers. How odd.
The show? - The place really reeked. Too small to accomodate the amount of people that came (not too many, mind you), the bar was practically unreachable, and the sound was really crumby. On the other hand, The Vultures themselves came up all dressed for success. They got a good look, (I esp. liked the nails-on-face thing going on with the guitarist), and they did a lot of jumping around, which is good. Definatly good energies from the vocalist. By the end of the show though, they gave a peculiar banging-metal-thingies-on-other-metal-thingies act... I'm not quite sure where they were going with that... Was it Throbbing Gristle for the meek, or was it simply random acts of senseless violence..? At any rate, they did their best to fill their self-proclaimed description "A misanthropic delusion of filth and fury". *g*
So..? - They have definite potential, but this evening was just plain blaaah. Hope they'll be better next time round.
