rock, death metal, 8 p.m.
Sometimes there’s simply no better way to describe a band than how they describe themselves. And that’s the case with Orlandoom, Fla.’s Druid Lord. They write: “Druid Lord arose from the mists in what is known by most as the year 2010. Whispers of demented souls throughout mankind’s short history formed a swirling pool of tortured and disturbing tales from which Druid Lord chose to derive their dreadful and woebegotten songs. With visions of the most insidious humans and their macabre rituals of pure evil, Druid Lord began the foundation of what would soon come to be known as the Druid Death Cult. The foundation on which this death cult would be built would soon come to be understood as a twisted embodiment of both doom metal and death metal. In doing so, Druid Lord drew the attention of not only the residents of this world but the feared attention of those inhabitants who reside in a world less often visited. Unbeknownst to the members of Druid Lord, these inhabitants reached through the long-closed door between these two realms and took control of their fates. What began as a desperate attempt to channel the misery they had experienced by telling others with their music eventually exploded into a full-scale onslaught of all humankind.” Well, that about sums it up. —Chris Haire WEDNESDAY
