I usually listen when people tell me I'll dig a band. I especially listen when eight people unsolicitedly tell me I'll love a band. But it still took my several months to finally get my shit together to see Krallice. I've since listened to the album and while triumphant, it does not compare to the live assault. Seeing New York's two premiere guitar wizards play noodle-free black metal is little short of worship-worthy. Anyone familiar with Mick Barr and Colin Marston will expect nothing short of excellence, which Krallice generally encompasses.
I'm officially a fan and I must say, it's a great feeling to have a local band who, friendships aside, I am a bonafied geek regarding (although, disclaimer, Colin did master Battletorn's Evil Chains @ the Paincave back when I was in the band.)
