Live report: Pig Destroyer, Dysrhythmia, Trenchgrinder, Mother Brain @ Saint Vitus

Pig Destroyer at Saint Vitus

How much is there for us to say about this show, really? We talked about this RBSS-sponsored event quite a bit over the past few months, so you probably already know how amped up we were about it.

And when the chips fell, it was just as good as I hoped it’d be. Mother Brain‘s new two-man format only intensifies the lean mayhem of their live delivery. Trenchgrinder have an Asphyx-esque gift for making their one-guitar death metal sound bigger than most bands with two axes can. Dysrhythmia are the most impossibly tight live metal act in New York City, which says something given the number of shred-inclined bands based here. And Pig Destroyer were Pig Destroyer, if a bit thicker and heavier for the addition of John Jarvis on bass. People go wild for that band, and for good reason. Opening with “Hymn” from the Benümb split: awesome curveball.

Thanks to the bands and to everyone who attended — the lengthy entry line waiting patiently in the pouring rain was a sight to behold. It is a good time to be into metal.
