Doom in June II
. . .
I’m seriously thinking of going. All these bands, whom I’d probably never get to see individually, together in one place? Solitude Aeturnus, Hooded Menace, Iron Man, and Stone Axe? And that place is Vegas? Someone pinch me! (Actually, don’t. You will regret it.)
With a lineup like this, I figured that the Doom in June festival would sell out instantly. But evidently this second edition hasn’t, since it just hired a publicist to tell me to tell you what I’m telling. As I get older, the idea of slow metal festivals appeals to me more and more, basically because that means less moshing.
(When I go to hell, my version of hell will probably be standing in perpetuity at the front of a moshpit as Neanderthals that are either (a) shirtless and buff or (b) drunk and fat crash into my back every 10 seconds. Also, the person in front of me is much taller than I am, and quite flatulent.)
(Of course, this all could happen in Vegas, aka hell’s foyer.)
On the minus side, I would be the only sober person there.
Below are the details. Someone needs to start an early summer death metal festival called you-know-what.
