We don’t get too many straight power/prog metal bands playing the bar. It’s seems to be a very European thing and as far as our scene here in Brooklyn, it’s pretty non-existant. Dark Empire not only exist but they fucking rip! I can’t wait.

Ok, i was skeptical. I’ll admit it. Then i saw this. Holy fucking heavy! Combine that with a band that literally shook the entire block the last time they played, Battilus and Brooklyn’s own girls de force, Mortals, we have a tuesday to be reckoned with!

I just listened to Marston’s Behold….the Arctopus and I think it might have put me over the edge. Dude is the only word I got left. Sorry. This band is fucking insane. Marston lends his quick hands […]
