Lair Of The Minotaur 2008_06_12 (Tempe, AZ – The Clubhouse)

LotM PosterLair of the Minotaur are one of the best metal bands on the road today. Imagine if Slayer stayed on the South Of Heaven course, and you have Lair of the Minotaur. I really can’t stress enough how brutally awesome they are! Listen to their MySpace tracks here. What I really like about their sound is how they take some standard death metal & thrash elements and add some new blood-crazed, flesh eating energy into it. I get kind of bored with a lot of metal bands playing the same oh-so-heavy bullshit that everyone’s been playing for 20+ years, or even worse, a band who tries to reinvent the sound/crossover or whatever. Both routes usually lead to the same pile of shit. LotM put in plenty of speed when needed, but definitely aren’t afraid of slowing down to let the doom soak in, even in the same song. Very nice!

I’ve seen them twice and will post both shows. This is the first. I showed up late and missed the first song or two, but the sound is better than my second (although complete recording). I was not impressed with the crowd at either of their concerts. They just sat there during the songs, and maybe gave a clap or two at the end. COME ON PEOPLE! I have an excuse not to get all crazy during the show (recording, duh), but what is theirs? I hope the band didn’t get the wrong idea…because I’d like to see them a third/fourth/fifth time!

Here is their amazingly graphic music video *If you are under 18, or are offended at all, ever, by anything, DO NOT WATCH THIS. It will scare you.
