MIKANNIBAL, YOU ANIMAL

40

The hottest women in metal are signed to The End Records. That might sound crass, but it’s true: my big crushes of ’08 are, without a doubt, Made Out of Babies’ Julie Christmas and, now, Sigh’s Dr. Mikannibal. We got to see the good doc in action the other night as part of the MetalSucks co-sponsored Sigh/Unexpect tour, and while Sigh clearly killed in every way imaginable (no big shock there), I think it’s safe to say that all eyes were on Mikannibal. She wears tight, short leather outfits, she dances, she headbangs, she plays the sax, and, oh yeah, her death metal growl is every bit as good as that of Sigh mastermind Mirai Kawashima.

I’m saying I wanna marry this chick.

Headbanger’s Blog has an excellent write-up of the show, complete with photos of Kawashima, Dr. Mikannibal, and the rest of the gang in action. But why just read about it when you can experience it for yourself? There’s still six dates left on the tour! The band plays all your favorites – “Death with Dishonor,” “Me-Devil,” “Inked in Blood,” even their cover of Venom’s “Black Metal” (which, at this point, is probably better than the actual Venom’s live version of “Black Metal”), and, like I said, you also get to ogle Dr. Mikannibal.

Get the remaining tour dates after the jump!
