Judgement Day Returning to San Diego (MP3)

Everybody’s favorite string metallurgists Judgement Day will return to San Diego next week.

Brothers Anton and Lewis Patzner have been shredding on violin and cello, respectively, for over 5 years, and in that time their hard work has earned them lots of famous friends. They’ve toured with bands like Mates of State and Margot and the Nuclear So-and-So’s, and they’ve made appearences on albums by Bright Eyes and some guy named Slash.

Check them out at the Soda Bar on September 17. Double-kick drummer Jon Bush will join the Patzner brothers for the show, and to round out the unstoppable instrumental force that is Judgement Day, he’ll be bringing his extensive collection of vintage effects pedals.

For a taste of their sound, watch their hilariously awesome video for “Cobra Strike” above, or download “Peacocks/Pink Monsters” (MP3), from their 2010 album of the same name. Back in March, they also contributed an awesome Poetic Memory list to us: their Top 5 Favorite Bad Action Movies of All Time. Additional tour dates are below.

Judgement Day are no strangers to action films. In fact, the string metal band spent years sifting through everything the genre has to offer, and have kindly compiled a list of the absolute worst for us.

You can check the band out live this Saturday, March 13th, at Soda Bar. They’ll be playing alongside The Burning of Rome, Battlehooch, and Boyscout in a special show curated by San Diego: Dialed In. It’s rare for San Diego: Dialed In to put together a show themselves, but the prospect of assembling such an action-packed lineup proved irresistible.

Now, without further ado, here are Judgement Day’s Top 5 Favorite Bad Action Movies of All Time… Continue reading
