Live Review: Black Breath, Burning Love, Martyrdod at Atlanta’s 529 (7/1)
Milwaukee-based hardcore metal hybrid Enabler took the stage next. I was initially vexed by how familiar the drummer looked, yet I failed to place the face with a name before the band unleashed their set of slack-stringed fury. Enabler forced the growing coven of metal fans into a unison involuntary head-bang. Their final song, “They Live, We Sleep”, ended with a riff that will swim around the memory banks for ages; some gargantuan sounding chunk not too far removed from something Disembodied might have written, though the band’s sound was refreshingly original. And, it turns out the familiar face behind the kit was Fall Out Boy’s Andy Hurley, who showed he still had his heavy chops from his days in Racetraitor.
