Amebix live at the Triple Rock Social Club

Last night (Wednesday, May 27, 2009), the legendary crust-punk innovators in Amebix played to an enthusiastic crowd of local Minneapolis punks, many of whom at been waiting to see the band for nearly 25 years. Suffice to say, it was the perfect choice to help celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Extreme Noise Records.

The Minneapolis natives and all around cool dudes in War//Plague and Misery kicked off the festivities with some straightforward crust-punk; both bands acknowledged that Amebix was now fulfilling a lifetime dream. I couldn’t agree with them more; it was simply an honor to be able to rock out with such influential musicians as a person who has grown to adore what they first pioneered. Even after 25 years apart, there’s no signs of age or inadequacy, as the songs were breathing with new life in front of the overly joyous packed house of crusties. And just to give credit where credits due, I believe Roy Mayorga (ex-Nausea, Thorn, Soulfly, Sepultura, etc.) must be commended for the thunderous backdrop he lays down for the band, as well; it was completely unexpected to see him behind the kit, but as the flying bodies proved, he definitely belonged there.

Additionally, I recorded an epic video of Amebix’s “Chain Reaction” (No Gods… No masters!!!!) that can be viewed directly below. Keep reading the whole post to catch the photos that I captured, as well as a live video from Misery.

Extreme Noise Records plans series of legendary 15th Anniversary shows

Posted in Concert Dates with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on Tuesday, March 24, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Extreme Noise Records has been holding down the punk rock scene in Minneapolis to its roots since it began 15 years years ago, and for their anniversary coming up they plan to reaffirm that to anyone who may have forgot! The reputable independent/co-op punk record shop has planned a 15th Anniversary concert itinerary at the Triple Rock Social Club that is sure to make any local crusty as giddy as a schoolgirl; for me, the biggest excitement from this recent announcement is knowing that the reunited crust-punk innovators of Amebix will be making an appearance in our fair city, but the awesomeness of none of these shows can be understated. Among others, the legendary punks The Kids, Shitkids, and many of Minneapolis finest names in underground punk will be some of the personalities to contribute the soundtrack for these shows in honor of ENR. The party begins at the end of April when influential reunited Minnesota hardcore heroes in Disembodied headline their reunion show with tech masters in Coalesce, and it will continue until the respected, reclusive d-beat hardcore punks in Tragedy finish up the festivities on July 11th.

All shows take place at the Triple Rock Social Club. Please visit triplerocksocialclub.com for ticket information (starting at noon today). Keep reading for all the dates! Continue reading
