HOLY CRAP, YOU GUYS HAVE TO HEAR IWRESTLEDABEARONCE
A HUGE round of applause to our friends over at Metal Injection (and MetalSucks reader Vitruvian Ape!), who posted the below video for IWRESTLEDABEARONCE’s “Tastes Like Kevin Bacon,” thereby alerting me to what is now one of my favorite two unsigned bands (check out the other one here). I think Rob from MI really said it best, so I’m just gonna be lazy and cut and paste what he wrote:
“So, what’s the deal with all these new bands that put the core in grindcore with their silly long names and infectious breakdowns? There may be a bit of an overflow of these types of bands, but I declare that Louisiana’s IWRESTLEDABEARONCE are a band to reckon with. This band has a pinch of everything, grind, core, some jazz, clean vocals, and a female singer to boot! What I liked most about this band, is the balance of not taking themselves too seriously and then absolutely bringing it!”
Well said, Roberto. Your parents must be very proud.
ANYWAY, do yourselves a favor and check out the video below. Then head over to IWRESTLEDABEARONCE’s MySpace page, and then, when you’re really totally sold on what a bunch of friggin’ geniuses these fuckers are, order their 6 song EP here.
Hopefully this band will be signed very, very soon; it kills me that I don’t have a high quality mp3 of “Kevin Bacon” to listen to to my heart’s content.

As a bonus, here’s the clip for “Ulrich Firelord: Breaker of Mountains” from the band’s self-titled EP. And, yes, I believe that is the Inspector Gadget theme song at the end.
