Sons of Zeus, Slayers of Gorgons: PerseuS Brings the Thunder

PerseuS

A late June Saturday night doesn’t necessarily conjure thoughts of machine gun kicks, chunky riffage with the tastiest of finger-licks or vocal pipes that make you wonder, if just for a moment, you’ve inadvertently stepped behind a Boeing jet engine, but if you were at The Blue Note in downtown Oklahoma City on the 30th, the last paragraph probably hit you like a Woodstock acid flashback.

In case you’re out of the loop, OKC has a new group of homegrown heroes; PerseuS hit the local metalcore scene in 2008 and, barring a brief hiatus, has been plowing their way to the big time. By all accounts, June 30th, 2019 was the best outing thus far, and let me tell you, it was a face-melter.

Another Round (the opener) got the room warmed up in top fashion, with a sound that reminded me of The Toadies and Alter Bridge (you’re welcome for that thought). Then, as if M. Night Shyamalan made the schedule, the headliners played the middle spot! Mind….. blown…. But I guess you can do what you want when you bring the furious thunder!

Upon first glance, PerseuS seems like a ragtag band of misfits, admittedly, but don’t let your eyes fool you! Jordan Gorath (drums) may be quiet and unassuming off stage, but his timing and energy behind the kit blow those misconceptions away quick.

And no, that’s not Toki Wartooth on the bass, that’s Gage Wayland! Together with Chris Gomez (rhythm guitar) the trio rhythm section is not to be trifled with!

Oh, you wanna know who the guy off to the left of stage is? It’s only Gabe Mark, lead guitar and composer! With an attitude that says “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” Gabe seems content to ride the edge of the spotlight, but when you’re the brains of the operation, you can rock out wherever you damn well please. And with blistering sweeps and awesomely technical solos, rocking out is an understatement.

And last but certainly not least, the frontman, on lead vocals, Jeremy Knight. Jeremy has a way of connecting with the crowd, of drawing out energy, that one only gets with true passion for performing. He had the entire bar on their feet by the second song, and kept them there till he was done with them. A fireball of energy, PerseuS is bringing their tight, heavy stampede of fury to ever greater heights.

Wanna see Slipknot play Rock Am Ring in Germany this weekend?

Well we’re giving away tickets to……. ok, no we’re not. This site doesn’t make that kind of money… yet! The good news, though, is that you don’t have to pay one red cent to catch the show.

The Nine will be live-streaming their headlining performance Sunday night, the band tweeted Thursday morning. It’ll give the group some (masked) face-time with their fans before the upcoming Knotfest Roadshow, which promises to be a kind of reestablishing of dominance, in the best way. This years lineup includes Volbeat, Gojira and Behemoth. (Warning: It Might Get a Little Loud!) We here at the Jam Hole are super- syched for We Are Not Your Kind, their 6th studio album, to drop in August.

Curtains-up is at 9:45pm UK time, which means the US east coast tunes in at 4:45pm, and 1:45pm for the west.

If you want to join in the festivities, just click the link below at the designated times on Sunday. http://slipknot1.com/events

Enjoy the show! And remember….you can’t see California without Marlon Brando‘s eyes 🤘😆

On This Day.

March 23rd, 1979

Following their super-successful 1978 debut album, Van Halen went on in completing their very first world tour. Come early December, just one week after tour, the band made their way back into the studio to begin recording their second album.

With in just a matter of days… recording came to it’s end and Van Halen II was ready to be released. It wasn’t long after that the album made way onto the charts, taking it’s Spot as number 6 on the Billboard 200… along with 2 hit singles that were featured on the Billboard 100.

Where the first album was more of a showcase for Eddie Van Halen’s “flaming fingers”, the sophomore record was the chance for the rest of the band to show that they well deserved that spot on stage, playing alongside “The Sultan of the Six-String.”

…We can go ahead and say, they didn’t disappoint!
