Pelican, Daughters, Nachmystium – 2006-09-30

October 2nd, 2006

This was a pretty great show. A band I’d seen before redeemed themselves, a band I’d never heard but heard good things about impressed me, and a band I’d never heard of at all made a damn good showing.

Nachmystium is a black/thrash metal band that I’d never heard of before in my life. The vocals are evil sounding and the drumming is non-stop. The lead singer looks like Josh Homme cross-bred with Dave Mustaine and he has a voice like a demon. There was epic hair swinging and growling and grunting. Color me impressed as hell.

Daughters is a band that I’d heard about a lot from the Internet Kids but I never got a chance to really listen to. I liked a few songs on their Myspace page but couldn’t find their albums online or in stores (thought I didn’t look too hard) so I just went to the show hoping they’d impress me and they did. The lead guitarist played some of the most intriguing angular riffs I’d ever heard and so damn fast too. Also: the lead singer reminds me of pre-fat Meatloaf.

I saw Pelican back in June and they didn’t impress me then. This time around they rocked some new jams that I really liked so I would probably go see them again. I think it hurt them last time playing after Mono. This time, playing after Daughters, they had a better mood set up for them and the audience wasn’t as subdued.

All in all, a good show. If you know Nachmystium or Daughters song titles, then post them in the comments after you listen to the sets because I’m at a loss for the setlists.

    I had a try at identifying the songs from the Daughters set.. I think I’m pretty right on most accounts.

    A few of the songs are actually 2 or 3 songs played (nearly) back-to-back. It seems like there’s some improvisation too in between the songs, or something of the sort. For instance, the part linking “The Ghost with the Most” to “I Don’t Give a Fuck About Wood, I’m Not a Chemist”, as well as some other moments throughout the set.


    02 – Daughters Spelled Wrong
    03 – Recorded Inside a Pyramid (they play the intro at the end of “Daughters Spelled Wrong”, stop and start the song again)
    04 – Crotch Buffet / Nurse, Would You Please Prep the Patient for the Sexual Doctor
    05 – Feisty Snake-Woman / Fiery
    07 – Fur Beach / Hyperventilationsystem / Providence by Gaslight
    09 – The Fuck Whisperer / The Ghost with the Most / I Don’t Give a Shit About Wood, I’m Not a Chemist
    10 – Cheers Fucks

    Thanks. Just goes to show how uninformed I am about this band.

    Well, in all honesty, I love the band but it still took a while for me to identify the tunes — most of them are from the new album and I’m not too familiar with that one.
