Every Time I Die-LetLive-Code Orange Kids-Angel Du$t Concert Review

Every Time I Die, Let Live, Code Orange Kids,
and Angel Dust Thrashes VClub


Rating: 5 1/2 out of 6 SKULLS
www.vclublive.com
Address: 741 6th Ave, Huntington, WV 25701
Hours: Wednesday 8:00 am – 3:00 am
Phone:(304) 781-0680


I have been to the V Club on several occasions (once to see Every Time I Die almost two years ago) and I was excited to see a Hardcore show returning. The V Club offers a great atmosphere for an intimate look at some kickass shows. Its stage is located to one side of the bar with the bar placed in the center. Another
great aspect is the second bar location which is outside, off the dance floor that offers an escape for a quick smoke between sets or when the urge strikes. The staff is organized and professional. They keep a good eye on safety and let the groups have fun but are quick to act if needed. All of these are fine qualities in a good venue, but what makes this place a Great Venue is the laid back atmosphere. Time and time again I have seen supporting acts mixing it up with the crowd during and after shows. It is amazing to see a member of a band that you are really into vibing and getting into the "pit" with you to support a band that they are into as well!


Angel Du$t
Baltimore, MD Based Hardcore/Punk Rock
React Records

This Baltimore punk band has a good throw back sound to them. They are not reinventing the genre but the sound  that they bring to the table is both passionate and inspired. Calling upon the sounds of Black Flag, The Ramones, Dead Kennedy's etc... They carved out a quick set that featured a cover of The Ramones song "The KKK Took My Baby Away".


Code Orange Kids
PA Based Hardcore/Punk Rock
Deathwish Inc

Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover... Let me just say that when this band walked on stage and started sound checking I was a little taken back. They had a quite reserve to them and got their gear checked quickly and methodically. Then they kicked off the show. The sound that was unleashed was refreshingly unexpected, a sound that reminded me of early Unearth live. The pit was alive during every song with a specific groove to it. We at SBE named the movement of part moshing part karate exhibit "The Code Orange Karate Kids". The combined vocal effort of Reba, Jami and Eric is unique in the way they complement each other. A highlight of the set was when Andy Williams from Every Time I Die came out to perform guest vocals. He quickly called out the pit saying "Beat Up Your Best Friend!!!". He punished the vocals and then left the stage letting the havoc ensue and be carried on by Reba and the group.

















LetLive
Inglewood, CA Based American PostHardcore
Epitaph Records

Energy, that's what this band's show is about. Jason flies over the stage in a flurry that
mirrors the possessed, all while staying true to the vocal timing and rhythm. The sound from the drums and guitars were very complimentary to the accurate yet intricately delicate screams. Jason (who was wearing a cast on his right arm) slung himself into the crowd carelessly and made his way to the bar where he immediately climbed up and let loose a calculated verbal assault on the crowd. As if the crowd wasn't already in a tizzy, LetLive (which is one word) covered Black Flag which sent the place soaring. My favorite aspect of the show is one in the same as the with the venue. Seeing Jason hang out after his set and talking with the crowd and experiencing the show was trulyawesome. The time he spent talking with and taking photos will surely be remembered by the fans.

Every Time I Die
Buffalo, NY Based Metalcore
Epitaph
www.everytimeidie.net

Not gonna lie to you, anyone that knows me knows that I am huge Every Time I Die fan! If you think this review will be biased though, you're right, read it anyway, they are that good. So now that the rant is done. This show was a clear showcase of what the band has done in the past, their current status and a small look into where the band will be headed. They did a plethora of songs from five of their albums and also showcased a Brand New Song called Thirst (which was an angrily heavy, yet fun song that rocked the pit).The energy that started with "After One Quarter of a Revolution" went through the middle of the set which had Jason from Letlive join them on stage for some guest vocals and more verbal inspiration to the Pit. The set concluded with crowd favorite "We'rewolf". This band is honestly one that must be seen live to appreciate. They continue to expand their sound not letting down true fans (the heavy) and being able to invite new ones along for the ride(the catchy). Out of the eight of us that went to the show six had not seen them and the atmosphere and experience didn't disappoint. As with LetLive my favorite part of the show was after when Andy and Stephen hung out in front of the stage talking with fans, taking photos and enjoying the atmosphere.


Final Thoughts
I have been to quite a few shows this year, even some at the V Club with its intimate setting and others that were EPIC in size. This was the show that will stick out in my mind when I recap my year. So if you have a chance to catch any of these shows that are left please do so. The bands are amazing and if the locations they are playing allow you as intimate a look at the show that the V Club did you will not be disappointed, and if you are then you are probably dead from the waist down.

Best of 2013: Movies

 

Best of 2013: Movies Edition

Best Mainstream Horror Movie:

Winner: The Evil Dead

Why?: The Evil Dead was a fantastic rendition of the original by Sam Rami, not quite a remake, but still true to its core, The Evil Dead satisfied fans of the genre. I am logging for a sequel, or the possible Army of Darkness 2 that will combine the two series.
Honorable Mention: The Conjuring and Mama

Best Lesser Known Horror Movie:

Winner: ABC's of Death

Why?: Don't let the IMDB reviews fool you, ABC's of Death is a great addition to horror and took the anthology horror genre past where "V/H/S" and "Trick R' Treat" took us. Yes, some of the movies left you scratching your head and wanting more, but overall films like "L is for Libido", "Y is for Youngbuck", and others made the movie fantastic. We are very excited about ABC's of Death 2, and even though our entry wasn't picked, we are very happy we had the opportunity to be apart of the film. You can view our entry here: "M is for Mad Cow".
Honorable Mention: V/H/S 2 and American Mary

Horror Movie That Left Us Disappointed: 

Winner (Tie): World War Z, The Purge, and Lords of Salem

Why?: Let's start with the colossal budgeted "World War Z". The effects and the storyline, up until the end, were fantastic. One who is a fan of the genre and movies in particular, will notice that the film seemed very rushed with the present ending. I almost hoped for an ending that was sad that showed his family not surviving, but instead it ended with a happy but short ending.

Now to the very profitable "The Purge". What a fantastic premise. America is perfect with minimal crime and low unemployment, but once a year the government allows "anything to go". The problem with "The Purge" is that you could predict the entire movie through the first 10 minutes. The kids in the movie are idiotic and need to be beaten. A fantastic premise with lackluster mechanics.

First let me tell everyone that I'm a massive Rob Zombie fan. As you can tell from our blog, we have covered the "Night of the Living Dreads" tour and had a blast. Rob is a very creative person that has a great vision for our genre. This was true until "The Lords of Salem". Although I think Sheri Moon acted very well, I think that Rob tried too hard to be Kubrick and he missed. Overall I hope Rob gets back into the chair and directs more classics like "The Devil's Rejects" and "Halloween". His next film is going to be a hockey based film. We shall see where that goes...

Concert Schedule-Bloody Cuts Film-Holiday Films



What a beautiful month December and January will be. Two of the owners of Scary Business Entertainment will turn another year older (Buzzman on the 21st, and D Mack on the 25th). 

Concerts:
We will also be covering the Everytime I Die concert on December 14th in Huntington, West Virginia. This is Buzzman's favorite band in the world, so we are really excited for the show. If you don't know this awesome band, check out their track "Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space." Video

In January, the guys from SBE will be going to the HellPop Tour in Cincinnati, Ohio. Two of our favorite bands, Butcher Babies and In This Moment will be there. Butcher Babies is an amazing aggressive metal band with two of the most beautiful lead singers in the world. Check out their video for "Mr. Slowdeath Video". In This Moment is lead by the beautiful and talented Maria Brink. In This Moment is a metal industrial rock band that mixes singing and screaming to portray its powerful lyrics. Check out the "Adrenalize Video". 

Movies:

SBE has currently written their short film "Governor Bush, Have a Drink, You Deserve It", which will be entered into the Bloody Cuts Horror Challenge. This short film will be a step into a different dimension for SBE. It will be a pseudo-silent film featuring a character dubbed "Governor Bush", who loves two things: Killing women and drinking scotch. We are behind schedule but hope to get it filmed over the next 2 weeks, so it will be edited and ready for the competition. 

Scary Business will also be featuring some holiday themed short movies for kids featuring our nieces and nephews. One example, Things That Go Bump in the Night aka Isabella, can be viewed Here

ABC's of Death 2 update... BloodyCuts UK

To all of our fans:

We regret to inform that our submission to the ABC's of Death 2 contest was not one of the finalist. We were extremely impressed with all the entrants that we watched (probably 200 of the 550+ movies). We thoroughly enjoyed filming "M is for Mad Cow", and hope that the people who watched it enjoyed it also (You can view it Here!!!)

The good news is, Scary Business Entertainment is going to be filming a short film to enter the Bloody Cuts Horror Challenge (More Information Here!). We are hoping that our artsy slightly silent film entertains our fans and other horror lovers.



Will SBE be at Rock on the Range? Bet your sweet ass we will!

Scary Business Entertainment WILL be rocking at Rock on the Range in May 16, 17, 18 2014. (More info at @ http://www.rockontherange.com/). For those who don't know, Rock on the Range is a 3 day music concert showcasing the best of rock and metal in Columbus Ohio. Last year bands such as Korn, Stone Sour, Buckcherry, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden lit up the main stage, with personal favorites Ghost, In this Moment, Klutch, The Sword, and Lamb of God. The lineup hasn't been announced yet for 2014 but don't be surprised to see Avenged Sevenfold headline one of the evenings. Personally I'd like to see Butcher Babies attend.

Night of the Living Dreads Review

Night of the Living Dreads- November 23, 2013

The anticipation for this concert was intense. I saw Korn for the first time at Rock on the Range 2013 and they were amazing. Rob Zombie had always been bucket list show that I needed to see. On November 23rd I had the opportunity to cross that off the list in Huntington, West Virginia.

Scar the Martyr- Joey from Slipknot's other project was hard and heavy. Joey is among the best modern metal drummers in the business. I think Scar the Martyr has the opportunity to be a great side project for Joey. (4 out of 6 skulls)

Korn- Korn performed a hour and 15 minute set-list with such songs as Blind, Falling Away From Me, Coming Undone, Got the Life, and Freak on the Leash. Aside from tackling a drugged dude, the show was amazing! Korn sounds as good live as they do on record, and Jonathan Davis's emotion really shows in his performance. (5 out of 6 skulls)

Rob "MotherFucking" Zombie- Rob was the real treat of the night. His stage included classic horror favorites as the Wolf man, Frankenstein, and King Kong (among others). John 5 changed guitars frequently and included a lava-lampesque guitar among others. The show was amazing and included such hits as Dead City Radio, House of 1000 Corpses, Living Dead Girl, Dragula, and some White Zombie tunes. I personally enjoyed Sick Bubble-Gum but was disappointed that Teenage Nosferatu Pussy wasn't included. The John 5 guitar solo was memorable. (6 out of 6 skulls)

Overall 5 out of 6 skulls. It was a don't miss concert!!!
