Show with Sonata Arctica

Seed : after the guitar player, pete, figured out how to actually fit on the stage, they had similar sound situation to SDS, meaning it was good right off from the start. They sounded really really heavey. Almost too havey in that system. At the end of their set, the singer, alex, from SDS came out and sang with them. They were the first band to have the crowd singing along with them. their singer (who appears to be somehow related to adem sandler) went down to the crowd and have a few people move in to sing along.

American Legion show with Porphyria

seed : so.. This was my second time seeing them. First off, I got told about 30 times to get a good shot of the singer's shirt. Funny stuff. So, they played really hard, head banging the entire time. last time I saw them, I thought they sounded a lot more hardcore. This time, it was more deathmetally. They were the first band who seemed to figure out how not to have the PA feed back he entire set. The singer stayed back behind the speakers. Duh!

Club 125 Stone and Steel Fest (Oak-knoll records)

seed : (main stage) ok, any person that likes this band and fronts that they don't like dead to fall is an elitest snob. They were very good. Some hardcore influence, some black death, and even some more techy parts. They were really high energy and the crowd moved. oh and the singer channeled the ghost of adam sandler.

Bio

Seed is a melodic metal band based out of Haverhill, Massachusetts. Since 2003, they have played heavy, intelligent, and uncompromising music; combing elements of thrash, death, hardcore, progressive, and power metal to create a truely unique sound not heard in most of today's music. Their technical, unapologetic style has gained them an impressive fanbase around northeastern Massachusetts, while still gaining new fans in new places every day.

At the center of this are the 5 collective voices of Seed: Vocalist Jared Lee, whose vocal "characters" range from cute to disgustingly angry, aggressive, and truely gut wrenching death metal outbursts heard in every song. On lead and rhythm guitar we have Brandon Tandy, a guitar player who likes to combine the machine-gun rhythm stylings of Dimebag Darrell or Marten Hagstrom, with the virtuostic finesse of John Petrucci or Jeff Loomis. Bringing in the low end is bassist Kyle Paradis. Imagine Cliff Burton crossed with Jaco Pastorius, with a stong affection for brutal death metal; and you have a decent idea of Kyle's playing/writing style. Rhythm guitar player, and newest band member Peter Souza brings more of a melodic/power metal influence to the band. Peter usually brings in material with a strong sense of melody and harmony. Kyle referres to him as "the best guitar player in the world who really doesn't know how to play guitar." The backbone of all this is drummer John Marocco. Coming from a strong hardcore background, his style is very tight and precise. John is one to throw in the unexpected fill or the polyrhythmic accents, while in partnership with Kyle, still keeping a stong backbeat for Peter and Brandon to run their dual-harmony style guitar lines; all the while, with Jared spewing forth his emotion-filled words for all the world to ingest.

If you decide to come out to a Seed live show, you should expect no less than what has been described to you previously. Playing shows are definately Seed's specialty, with the crowd usually singing along to their favorite songs, causing violent mosh pits. Seed have no problem winning over new fans at every show they play, come out to one and see for yourself. The future looks like it holds only good things for the 5 young men in Seed, and they don't plan on slowing down any time soon.....
