As the sun was setting last night, Australian thrash band DZ Deathrays took the stage of the Old Rock House.

Despite the intimate audience, duo Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley provided a high-energy set filled with songs off of their 2012 release "Bloodstreams." The band utilizes pedal delays and distortion that gives them a fresh sound, with drum beats that make you rethink standing too close to the speakers.

Bass Drum of Death headlined the show, with their debut 2011 release "GB City" already gaining notoriety through the single "Get Found." Bass Drum of Death originated with multi-instrumental John Barrett doing low-fi recordings in 2007, and an initial release in 2008. The band is great live, filled with raw energy and grittiness that is hard to find these days. The set flowed seamlessly and without breaks from one song to another, and the crowd slowly gravitated to the stage to hear the fast drum beats and riffs from the band.

Although both bands could have played a bit more in their sets, I will be on the lookout for them the next time they come to town, and are definitely worth a trip to the record store.
