I saw a band perform a few weeks back that blew my mind.
I saw them again last night at the Heavyweights. They didn’t win, but with Second place, Flood The Desert has definitely turned some heads. The crowd even chanted their fucking name. A LOCAL band had people chanting their names.
Flood The Desert is, I imagine, what the illegitimate offspring of Mastodon and Rush would sound like. These dudes are insane. A three piece with the sound of a much larger band and way more interesting music than most local bands, these guys are original, innovative, and extremely entertaining.
I’d keep my eye on these guys if I were you, because they ARE going places.
