Here is the second installment from the show at Les and Jim’s in Merrill on January 20th.
Orwell is a band who’s members are spread throughout the state of Wisconsin. They used to have a more death metal sound but with their new album they changed directions. The new album is still very heavy but more melodic and atmospheric. It was one of my favorite releases from a Wisconsin band this year. You can check out the album and download it here. Also, consider buying the CD as the packaging was hand made by the band is is really stellar.
Orwell puts on an intense show. Lots of energy and they are tight. There were some amp issues that delayed the set starting, but once they got started they sucked the crowd in fast. I look forward to seeing this band again soon. Take a look at the video below.
