This was my 6th Pale Chalice show and this was the best they ever sounded. The sound was raw and dirty but all the instruments came through incredibly clear. They tore through all the songs from their EP plus one more. I'm truly disappointed in the turnout last night. BFC did cancel, but Pale Chalice are one of my favorite live bands and I think more people need to experience them.

They Are All Dead

Excellent grind/crust band They Are All Dead played Retox Lounge on Friday, 6/24. You can download their debut The CorporatEP at their bandcamp.


Fermentae is 1/2 of local blackened noise duo Sutekh Hexen. They played Retox Lounge on a bill that included They Are All Dead and Pale Chalice.

Vestiges played San Francisco's Sub Mission Gallery with Lake Of Blood. They're touring behind their first album, the excellent The Descent Of Man.
