   DIRTBRED - STILLSEED - SCARIFIER - UNDECIDED
The Exchange - Regina, Saskatchewan (CAN)
June 19th 2004

Well, once again I find myself in the unenviable position of nursing a hangover. Everyone please recite the mantra in unison: "I WILL NEVER DRINK AGAIN." Now then, please proceed to crack open the next beer. And, in other news, a rock show happened.

With Dirtbred seeming to be on unofficial hiatus due to the double duty of multi instrumentalist (and all around fine, fine, man) Troy Bleigh, it was with great anticipation that I entered the Exchange. I hadn't seen the band perform live for some time, so to have them back looked to be a sweet treat indeed. Unfortunately, as is the way of the rock show, the evening started off with doors opening late, as per usual. Once they opened, though, all in attendance readied themselves to worship at the mosh pit flanked altar of the gods Heavy and Metal.

UNDECIDED, the opening act, are good people. It's really too bad their music makes me want to wretch. Enough said about them.

SCARIFIER, a new act to the Regina scene, absolutely astounded many. Gaping mouths were seen everywhere as they spread their hateful take on death metal. Powerful guitars and pounding drums and, thankfully, the first mosh pit of the night.

They were followed by the hard rock band STILLSEED, whom I personally enjoy greatly and I think they should be famous. Hell, I think a herd of moaning water buffalo should be famous if it gets Nickelback off the damned air waves. Sorry, I'm bitter about talentless schmucks getting rich... However, back to the point. And the point would be, how did those bred in dirt fare? Well, lets just say my neck may never recover.

Taking the stage with more energy and all encompassing power than has been seen from them in a long, long time, DIRTBRED showed everyone how to rock hard, and in the process surely turned non believers into simpering, whining piles of human refuse. Melding seamlessly fan favorites like "Heirloom", "T.W.A.T." and "Five Nines" with newer and more ultimately crushing material such as "Wounds Of Today (Scars of Tomorrow)", "Emerge The Coward", and the curiously titled "New Song", the band exerted total control of the venue. Much headbanging ensued, led chiefly by lead singer Donovan Turner's masterful windmill hair flinging action. He should become an action figure, seriously. Over the course of about fourtyfive minutes or so, and time is irrelevant here really, the dry became sweaty, hands became horns, and pits of swirling, headbanging insanity ruled. A truly excellent example of why we all love the music and the people who make it happen. And oh yeah, they covered "Refuse/Resist" by the almighty Sepultura. Horns up, boys, and play again real soon. I'm begging here.
