Hummingbird of Death, Havok, Cannabis Corpse, Ramming Speed

Gusto, Wednesday, Oct. 21


On the louder end of the spectrum, Too-Much-Distortion's Justin Cantrell is turning this week's skate night at Gusto into an eardrum-piercing party. The grinding, thrash-metal lineup for the night includes locals Hummingbird of Death (love that name); Denver's Havok; Virginia-based Cannabis Corpse­--which includes members of punk/metal band Municipal Waste--a group smashed together by a combined love of wacky tobacky and the music of Cannibal Corpse; and Boston's Ramming Speed, a group Cantrell said lives up to its name. He said when Ramming Speed last played Boise--at a show at Cantrell's house--the lead singer spent his time jumping in an above-ground pool, running and shaking like a wet dog through the crowd and back to the stage, and then doing it all over again.
