NO MERCY METAL: LETCHWORTH SHOW NYC THAT UPSTATE METAL RULES TOO
As part of our sponsorship of the No Mercy Metal showcases here in NYC — the most recent of which was held July 24th at Santo’s Party House — we’ll be highlighting one band from each show here on MetalSucks in an effort to bring the best of the piping hot NYC metal scene to the rest of the world.
Civic duties once again prevented me from attending the show, but after checking out all the bands on the bill I’ve decided to award this month’s feature to Letchworth. Letchworth came all the way from Sharon Springs, NY (about 50 miles west of Albany) to hawk their metal wares in the bowels of NYC, but it’s easy to see why the audience in the above video (filmed at a different show) is so amped to see them. These dudes can all play their instruments well and have a good understanding of what makes for a solid song, and the put a lot of energy into making their live performance entertaining. Sure, their style is an undeniable nod to Lamb of God, but it’s not like that’s a bad thing. Definitely psyched to see these guys next time they make it downstate.
