Recently, the UK band Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats (UATDB) brought their Night Creeper Tour back for round 2 to Atlanta at Terminal West. The band was formed (2009) in Cambridge by lead vocalists Kevin (K.R.) Starrs who wanted to express his love for the music of the late 1960s, the birth of heavy metal . UATDB has an uncanny ability to produce this psychedelic like doom metal sound by using vintage musical instruments and recording equipment. They have released four (4) LPs and many singles, most notably their recent entitled The Night Creeper. In support for part two (2) of The Night Creeper Tour, UATDB brought Danava and The Shrine as their openers.
The Shrine is a musical mixed bag of punk and metal which sometimes confuses concert goers with their combination of Black Sabbath and the Ramones. Hailing from Venice Beach, CA., The Shrine have been on many tours with names like Red Fang, Earthless, Fu Manchu, Dinosaur Jr., and Graveyard to name a few. I've personally seen these guys on a couple of the above mentioned tours and each time they did not disappoint as they shredded through many of their hits.
The band Danava, hailing from Portland, OR., brought their very energetic and heavy, psychedelic metal sound in full force for their set before UATDB. These guys have paid their dues as touring musicians since forming as a band in 2003. I'm pretty surprised that I have yet to see them live before this night with all the concerts I have attended over the years.
Now for the moment I have been waiting for... may I present all the way from Cambridge, England- Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.
