"For those who walked in to see A Black Rose Burial performing, it was like walking into the sound of a battle in progress... the screaming, the odd syncopation, the mix of command & chaos. A lean mosh pit was tearing up the floor in front of the stage. The sound was definitely metal, definitely hard, and definitely new. The tempo kept changing, kept teasing, and kept the crowd guessing. Would the next pause lead to a guitar solo? Never. They sounded dark without ever sounding like a funeral dirge. Joel's sweatshirt with "Hot Damn!" (Every Time I Die) written on the front pocket pretty much summed it up."Friday, July 23rd, 2004 (Powerslave.com Event) @ The Blank Club
"San Jose natives A Black Rose Burial kicked things off right around 9 p.m., with their standalone brand of technical hardcore metal. Undeterred by (or perhaps because of) the sparseness of the crowd, lead vocalist Joel Ferry took the opportunity to leap into the area just in front of the stage, where he shrieked, sang and growled for the remainder of Black Rose's set. The band launched into every song with extreme gusto, executing time changes and odd signatures with near-flawless abandon. Each member was all over his respective instrument, resulting in an enjoyable mixture of rhythmic and melodic dissonance. Even if many of their songs tended to blend in with one another, the material's unpredictability always managed to keep listeners on their toes, enough to turn the head of even the most ardent Meshuggah fan."
