DC9 Live at El Sibil, Ep. 14: The Timeline Post
...and for the YouTube elite, here's your link.
Not exactly the chattiest band, I'll admit. But that's fair enough: The once-upon-a-time Sulphur Springs-based band seems to prefer that its songs do the talking. Want more? OK: In one of the few reveals the band did allow in the short interview above, frontman Bryon Mantooth admits that the band's catalog is largely centered around skepticism. Of what, exactly? "Of God," Mantooth says. With song titles like "Wedding Bell Murders" and "Kill The Girl," though, I'm thinking Mantooth's skeptical of some other stuff as well, but I won't argue with him. Or with the appeal of the band's latest release, Slow Descent, a visceral, in-your-face release filled with more than its share of angst and volume.
Watch the above clip and you'll see what I mean.
Oh, and feel free to stop by El Sibil (122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff) this evening as we welcome in yet another area talent for a taping. Starts at 7 p.m. and, as always, it's free to attend.
