Absu & Sothis @ B.B. King Blues Club (6/21/2009)

The Candlelight Records Tour was bringing their bands Absu and Sothis to the Black Metal legions at clubs all around the USA. It originally featured both Averse Sefira and Glorio Belli but towards the end they were replaced by Rumpelstiltskin Grinder and we were on point to bring you images and the scoop on the event. Absu was actually supporting their own self-titled release “Absu” while Sothis would be celebrating the darkness of “De Oppresso Liber”.  To learn more about this show, just scroll down past the logo below to see it all. Photos of all three bands were delivered for your dark viewing pleasures.

The answer would come in the way of Rumplestiltskin Grinder who hail from the Philadelphia, PA area and are signed to Relapse Records. In the end this would leave the audience with two Black Metal bands and one that was more along the lines of Thrash meets Hardcore and if you were not there but wished to be, here is how the evening transpired.
