Crippled Black Phoenix live review - Sound Control, Manchester
Venue: Sound Control, Manchester
Cripplied Black Phoenix remind Manchester that few do prog metal with so much panache
Supergroups are, as a rule, total dross – pared down to the most stereotypical and dull elements of their individual output. Publicist UK feature talented underground musicians – among them journeyman drummer Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Melt Banana) and members/ex-members of Freshkills, Revocation and Goes Cube – but avoid cliché with a sharp left turn into a heavy post-punk/prog style.
