As we continue our adventure into the very darkest corners of self-expression, the Castle is thrilled to present a full live set by The Communion. The Communion's set is a life-affirming ass-kicking, one that leaps with ease across several metal and noise touchpoints—a punch out by Autopsy, Eyehategod, Halflings and Tulus all at once. These guys really are that good, and I'm just going to open up the airwaves and let 'em go.
Six million thanks to WFMU trusty Diane Kamikaze Farris, who'll be engineering The Communion's set, live and in real time, and you know, works on big metal tours and stuff, and is graciously lending her dynamite expertise to make sure it all comes off. Diane was also a friend to late Communion guitarist Lee Altomare (1976-2010), who passed away in April of this year. You can check out Diane's mighty playlists here. You rule, Diane!
The Communion do it all, and do it all well, often in the context of a single three-minute song. If you're stooge enough to doubt my claims, check out their myspace page, and the two live clips I shot of the band this past July, embedded below. Their writing and song-structuring are top shelf, and the intensity of their execution make The Communion a hellish live bludgeoning that's not to be missed.
Three swings with a sharp axe should do it @ 12 mid.
