It starts with the ritual slaughter of a virgin goat. Its blood flows off the edge of a machete forged in a fire stoked with biblical passages. Hunks of dismembered body parts stolen from local graveyards are demonized with evil passages from ancient thrash texts. The crowd passes a blood-filled cup till their teeth run red. And then the show begins.
When More Metal!!! impales Churchills Pub (5501 NE Second Ave., Miami) Sunday at 9 p.m., you can be sure of murder, mayhem, and total annihilating destruction of your eardrums. Its actually just a bunch of kids and old people who act like them having fun with loud, fast music. Witchaven from Los Angeles will play alongside the Panix, Music Hates You, Gorilla Pussy, To Be Hated, Slashpine, and Hellmass. Expect growling, screeching, distortion, a mosh pit, beer, whiskey, smoke, and a good time. Call 305-757-1807, or visit churchillspub.com.
