Last night was one to remember at Brooklyn’s iconic heavy metal club, Saint Vitus Bar, as Kerrang! curated and sponsored its first ever show in the United States.
Headlined by New York’s Mutoid Man (featuring Stephen Brodsky of Cave In and Ben Koller of Converge), with support from Ruby the Hatchet of Philadelphia, and The Well of Austin, Texas, the evening was filled with fuzzed-out heavy riffs and whiplash-inducing head-banging.
Last week, the mighty Mutoid Man announced a three-part series of cover tunes, starting with a totally righteous cover of Tom Jones’ “She’s a Lady” (re-christened “She’s a Mutoid Lady,” natch). Today, MetalSucks is SO FREAKIN’ EXCITED to be premiering the second entry in the series, a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” dubbed “Mutation Breakdown.”
