LEBENDEN TOTEN new stuff + live
Just got back from the 2nd of two LEBENDEN TOTEN shows. Playing the new LP as I type this.... probably my favorite thing they've done so far (although the first 7" is pretty high up there too...). Seriously, the song 'Near Dark' is soooo fuckin' good. I fell in love with the song live and even though I've already sent out for the LP through the mail I bought another copy today from the band just so I wouldn't have to wait to listen to that song again. Fuck! This band sounds so much tighter live now than the last time I saw them (about 3 or 4 years ago?). The pogo parts fucking kill too. Big thanks to Gus for having the band play these two shows locally before flying back home to Portland after their Japan/Australia/New Zealand tour. Also, fellow PDX band NERVESKADE was really good too. Got their demo and I'll be sure to pick up their vinyl releases as they come out.
