Midnight Metal Massacre Setlist 8/26/2011

“Ocean Planet” by Gojira was a very pleasant surprise today. I pulled it out of my metal library on a whim, looking for material for the show, and ended up being blown away. It’s a nasty, take-no-prisoners death metal track, with a progressive feel to it. In short, exactly what I like to play on Midnight Metal. Also notable was “Diaspora” by Irepress, which is an 11-minute post-metal epic. It’s tough to squeeze such a long song into a set, but in this case, it was worth it. That song is packed full of excellent riffs and sexy post-rock grooves. Good stuff. Always a welcome addition, I played a song by local metalcore band Brock Murdoch. Straight out of New Brunswick, they’re perfect for fans of Glassjaw or The Number Twelve Looks Like You. As a matter of fact, I found out about them by seeing them open at Number Twelve’s farewell show on 1/29/2010. I was joined on the mic by my good friend Sarah Morrison, who has her own show on 90.3 The Core, Sarah Morrison’s Infinite Playlist. If you want to hear more of her beautiful voice, tune into The Core Monday mornings 8-11AM. Without further ado, here’s the setlist:
