Not many shows have hit Toronto during the summer season, but Winnipeg doom metallers Psychotic Gardening hit Toronto on their national tour and played the Comfort Zone on a warm Saturday night. This night was fun for me because we have welcomed my very good friend and musical blood brother Aaron Chatterpaul into the MMK fold, and he got to conduct his first interview with Psychotic Gardening. It was an amazing experience for me to watch Aaron interview the band.
First band on was Cromlech. While they are very good musicians, they did struggle to hold my interest for most of the second half of their set. All their songs were over 10 minutes long, but most of their harmonies and guitar licks were ear-perking. While Kevin Loughnane is a great vocalist, I found that his vocals were too distorted through the P.A, especially his falsetto. I think that's one little issue that could have been improved. If I was to describe Cromlech's style, it would be Iron Maiden meets black metal and doom metal with clean vocals.
