Even from Mexico I am posting!

Well, to be honest, I won't be posting much. I'm having the damndest time learning the language, so I won't be able to hop into a store here, and ask where the metal section is (and any preferences of mine more abstract than that would quickly turn into an Abbot and Costello sketch...).

At any rate, I was dumping the contents of my camera to make room for more pics, and I totally forgot I had a short video of some band footage on there.

On 6/6/06, I went to a black metal fest in Baltimore, and while all of the bands were great, the first one I saw really impressed me. Called Bloodtorste, they took kvlt very seriously. I mean, I don't have to point out all of the obvious in the video. However, what you can't see are huge candelabras with red candles, a smoke machine, and strobe lights. You also don't get to see the massive fireball the lead singer blew over the packed crowd at the end.

A few months later they played a show at the Warehouse, where I used to book, and then they dropped off the face of the earth. Which is absolutely a shame. If anyone knows anything about this grim horde, please come forward.

!Reyes del Metal aman satan!
