When I saw the event Mayhem in the Ville, I may have given the Universe a high-five – because for months amongst my friends we talked about how there is nothing for the metalheads – in a college town. Which seems odd and strange because I am sure not all students listen to the same genre’s of music.

The town I live in doesn’t have a metal scene – although it could happen because there are a ton of bands in this particular town and our surrounding areas.

I was excited to hear about a show not too far from me that was all about the Heavy Metal – and not sure what you expect as I had not heard these bands before, I was pleasantly surprised – as well as making some amazing connections.

Talking to the owner of the establishment, I know he’s trying to do a monthly metal show as well as feature other genres on various weekends – and I am loving this plan. I also know that there are few people in this town that want to bring the metal scene back with potentially me being part of this in some kind of a way.

The bands that were featured were:

Time Nothing – featuring a short interview below

Cut The Architect’s Hands – featuring a short interview below

They attack with a ferocity and deftness that I believe gives the best avenue for their brand of the original metalcore. Ya know, the Botch-Coalesce-Converge kind. This extends to their physical performance as well, which includes members looking as if their instruments had better comply or die.

The Panic Broadcast – there’s a plan for an interview in the meantime you can connect with them on their Facebook Page here or check out their website here!

Our name is inspired by the novel War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. We are made up of five guys from the Shenandoah Valley with a combined 20+ years of experience. We are influenced by a wide range of musical genres ranging from classic rock and blues to 80’s new wave and every sub-genre of metal there is.

Braincell – I interviewed these guys the same night, you can check that out here

Braincell is a five-piece groove/thrash metal outfit based in Lynchburg, Virginia. With seasoned members coming from a variety of backgrounds, Braincell combines elements of death metal, punk, hardcore, progressive, and traditional heavy metal to offer a unique and powerful blend of full force headbanging madness. The result is a sound of combined aggression and melody, delivered with an unstoppable high energy live show.

It definitely was a great night of listening to new bands and I look forward to many more Mayhem in the Ville events in our town.
