Drop Dead, Bell Witch

[EXTREME METAL] The outer edges of tempo will be explored at this show, which the promoter has dubbed, “Fast vs. Slow.” Really, this is a mini-festival of epic proportions, with a touring cadre of leaden sludge colliding with grind extremists. Topping the bill is Providence, Rhode Island, legend Drop Dead. The group formed in 1991 and is still going strong, standing pat on its political hardcore stance, delivering short bursts of intense speed and vitriol. The penultimate slot tonight is filled by Bell Witch, a duo from Seattle that bemoans these end times with melodic anguish, sung from a sinking tar-pit of doom. The whole bill crushes and should take listeners on a trip to heavy frontiers with no middle ground.
