Valentine’s Day Massacre at The Courtyard – Covering the Scene
Posted by Mike Ritchie on February 21, 2015
…excerpt

Troy’s Blanche Devereaux plays and performs metal like they are extracting demons from your inner most self. Basically yanking them out, wadding them up, and before you can breathe relieved, ram them back in. It’s better to have your personal demons contorted, disoriented and confused by the external environment before reinsertion. Mikey Devereaux’s bellowed growl complimented the maniacal sounds from Danny Miramontes and Jeremy Stone. It’s got thrash, metalcore and a bit of black metal putting The Black Dahlia Murder on Cannibal Corpses’s alter of sacrifice. They took the stage burning away the cold of the night on ”Noctural Consumption.” They encouraged all to step in the fire and “Man Up.” It only burns a little. They have been around for a while and seem to keep getting heavier.

The Keys of Life and Death, the debut album of Dayton metal band Horlet, is crunchy and tight from beginning to end. This cd has been in my player for a month now and shows no signs of getting stale! The heavy riffs SLAM, weaving lots of tandem melody lines and intricate percussion with great composition and production quality.

Hanks Pub – Josh Deeter’s B-day Party  1.24.14

Close The Hatch – Really enjoying hearing these guys play! They are an experimental metal band blending a lot of different styles into their sound. They have a lot of progressive metal as well: forging new ways of playing, having new ideas on what Metal should be, and taking it to the next level.  At first it sounds soft, and then the voice comes at you like a battering ram, letting you know it’s DEFinitely NOT soft. It reminds me also of other melodic metal,  creating a picture or a work of art within the music. Their music sounds surreal when they slow down the tempo and it features the great bass lines. Guitar solos that light up the atmosphere, and the drums are dynamic.
Band Members: 
2 Shauns, 1 Steve, a Rohr , and a Josh kill it when they hit the stage.
