Diecast Live at the House of B

In support of Hatebreed and Agnostic Front, on the Heavyweights of Hardcore Tour, Diecast tore it down, displaying a full throttle performance despite technical difficulty early in their set.

The cranium cracking quintet from Massachusetts kept cool and professional while initially hitting the stage without bassist, Jeremy Wooden. Fortunately, the sound bugs were exterminated within a few minutes. You might say that the band was caught with their knickers down. Get it? Bottomless …? Nonetheless, guitarists Jonathan Kita and Kirk Kolatis carried it well in Jeremy’s momentary absence.

Paul Stoddard is Diecast’s new vocalist, who sings on their recently released Tearing Down Your Blue Skies. Stoddard makes an easy transition from scream to clean in his singing style, and does it when required by the mood of the song or the riffs being played.

Diecast’s man beating the skins with fast moving shins is Jason Costa. Radical, powerful, and precise drumming. Note to self: Jason Bonham, Jason Bittner and Jason Costa are great drummers.

Jonathan Kita’s guitar wants to kill your mama. A fine player, with no shortage of energy on stage, Jonno plays a ferocious lead while keeping the low end happening with Kirk Kolatis.

From what I could see, the blood may have been spilling out in the pit. The mosh action was frenetic and it was all Diecast’s fault. It’s funny that this site is called the House of Blues because there wasn’t any Delta, Bayou or 12 bar blues going down on this night. Not that I ain’t cool on the blues, ya heard me? Wrote a little song about it. Like to hear it? Here it go!

Their set included three songs from their Day of Reckoning and three songs from Tearing Down Your Blue Skies.

The last song of their set was Pantera’s “Mouth for War.” Of course, there can be only one, folks. I have to say that Diecast did it with attitude and respect to the Cowboys from Hell.

Diecast are real metal men, and they are unpretentious in who they are and what they do.

Three and a half stars!
