The House of Capricorn / His Master's Voice - Akld 28/2

Postby Dead Kid » Sat Mar 01, 2014 6:44 pm

His Master's voice is heavy blues rock featuring a member or two of Cripple Mr Onion. Good turnout, somehow I suspect their mates dig this stuff more than the good ol' chug metal. The frontman was a bit over the top I thought, slurring all his words together until they're one big puddle of gravel. With his trucker hat and frizzy hair it's easy to worry that one of the slower songs they break out will be Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Reasonably enjoyable nevertheless, a bit like what you'd get if Two Wolves members took showers. They played an hour-long set.

First time out for The House of Capricorn since the reduction to a 3-piece, but they packed a punch I reckon. How you gonna cup that mic though Marko? Looking forward to the album... they cranked out a few new dark rock tunes. Plus the hitlist. Arcane Delve was a highlight, it's a banger. Had a good mosh around. Hopefully they can keep performing one-off gigs every year or two.

Ami left. The others have plans to hit up Melbourne and leave Marko by his lonesome self.

It was no stomping harmonica sludge, that's for sure.
