On Your Deathbed

Live Band Review

By:  Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio

 

 

Originating from Taunton, Massachusetts, On Your Deathbed stormed the stage of Rock and Shock Saturday, October, 14th at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts.  The quintet of Bob Mendell (vocals), Mike Creature (bass), Caz Gadles (guitar,backing vocals), James Healy (guitar/backing vocals) and drummer Mike Geoffrion also have a self-titled EP. Produced by David Allen and recorded at Solstice Studios, it's available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon but better yet, catch them live and visit their merch table for a CD.

 

 

This band is an unrelenting engine whose furor and frenetic energy are seen through the entire room this day. Intensity is the word and can be seen in the ferocious pits and swaths of headbangers at their performances.  Incensed lyrics are delivered by the abrasive guttural pipes of Bob Mendell with 100% metal passion. Their unruly rebellious assault continues with infectious trudging breakdowns, pile-driving bass tones, rapid-fire drumming and massive utterances from the bowel-churning guitarists.

 

When the final song “On Your Deathbed” rebounds through those punished speakers, the men are raging on stage and the audience are in a frenzy, you are left with this heavy, vigorous feeling of “Holy shit! What was that?”

 

On Your Deathbed knows the sound that they want and are unrepentant in their pursuit. At any venue they let loose with a vehemence and rate of speed that teeters on anarchic restlessness.

 

On a lighter note I asked vocalist Bob to describe how it feels being on that stage, looking out at a younger generation thoroughly immersing themselves in the band's music. His words, “When I see younger kids and the younger generation getting into our music it gives me hope for the music scene. Makes me feel like our community is growing.  I love thinking that maybe we may be helping people get into even MORE music. The metal scene is a family and we welcome everyone.”

 

The beauty of heavy metal.
