Artist: Biblical

Song: War Pigs [Black Sabbath cover]

Recorded at The Silver Dollar Room ("DEATH TO T.O. IV: A Halloween Covers Show"), October 30, 2014.

Biblical - War Pigs

Once again Dan Burke and Elliott Jones celebrated Hallowe'en by turning the Silver Dollar and Comfort Zone into a giant, non-stop musical frenzy, with nearly twenty bands doing mini cover sets. The bands — several of which were constructed just for the occasion — all took the task seriously, putting a lot of work not only into the music but also costumes and all the little things to enhance their tributes. The only downside of the night was that with so many bands on the bill, it was impossible to stage-manage a consistently efficient staggering between the stages, so that it didn't take long for bands upstairs and downstairs to be playing simultaneously, forcing the crowd to make hard decisions on who to see and who to miss. Otherwise, it was a fabulously fun rock'n'roll marathon of a night.

Biblical were also fully-committed to inhabiting the spirit of the band they were honouring on this night, and easily tackled the requisite sonic wallop to flatten the packed house. Jordan Howard (who would also be playing with the band on their subsequent U.S. tour) was in fine form on guitar here while Nick Sewell prowled the stage in Ozzy mode.
