Book of Black Earth
Check out that band logo behind the singer in the first photo, it's the scribbliest metal logo I've seen in a long time. Book of Black Earth contain a couple ex-members of Teen Cthulhu who I was a big fan of (I was geeky enough to play punk D&D with some of the other T.C. members about a decade ago over a case or two of Black Label one weekend). They play keyboard and guitar-laden black metal that's pretty brutal, yet totally catchy. Hear them lay it down here. These photos are from King Cobra last Thursday, February 28th, 2008. One fatal flaw though about this band though, check out the keyboard player's white tennis shoes. That's not metal.
