The Hunt @ Otto's Shrunken Head

At a tribute in honor of Lux Interior's untimely passing, bands came out to Otto's to play a quick set with a Cramps cover included. One of these groups happened to be The Hunt, with whom I joined on a brief jaunt to London, and without whom I could not get my NYC fix of post-punk tribal deathcore. The boys have recently been in and out of their Boston studio finishing up a new album, from which they played a new untitled track with lyrical content about an evening with mysterious mushrooms. Older classic material followed, such as "Set The Rising Sun" and their obligatory cover, "I Was A Teenage Werewolf," which singer J. Vigil howled and skulked through with a rhythmic creep conjuring up the undead Elvis. It was over almost before it started, but, as usual, they left me satisfied.
