Things got heavy with ASG
Things got heavy Saturday night in Plaza Midwood neighborhood as Wilmington’s ASG came through the Queen City to make a stop at The Rabbit Hole. Local bands, Green Fiend, The Seduction, and Violent Life Violent Death made sure the crowd was wide awake before ASG took the stage.
Charlotte new comers, Violent Life Violent Death, opened the show with a performance that set the tone for the rest of the night.
Their intense live show is one that genuinely takes me back to the early 2000’s when I first started seeing bands like Hopesfall, Poison the Well, and 18 Visions.
With such an energetic live show I have to urge you to see them for yourself so you can fully understand what I’m talking about. Your next chance is this coming Saturday at Doom Fest in Wilkesboro, NC (https://www.facebook.com/events/763205797152810/).
“We’re not a mosh band, so move up and bang your head,” said Joshua Taddeo of Green Fiend.
They certainly had people banging their head Saturday night. Another Charlotte-area five piece band, they play heavy stoner doom metal, and they’re always a blast to catch live.
They recently released a video for their song “Higher Than Heaven (Heavy as Hell)” that gives a glimpse at how hard these dudes party and how heavy their music is.
While most bands fit into smaller sub-genres of rock, The Seduction is just pure rock’n’roll. The quartet had fans baging their heads from the first note, to the last.
They played a lot from their newest release, which according to one fan in attendance is “probably the best stuff they’ve done so far”, but they also mixed in several older songs in order to cover their full catalog so far.
Just after midnight ASG took the stage to close out a night of incredible music.
