Readers’ Bands: Let’s Meet Western Massacre

Western Massacre

We get emails every day, from people pitching us the latest in jazz hardcore or ukulele-driven black metal, and for the most part, we delete them.

If you’re just some dude blasting every site out there with your dumb band’s bullshit, we’re purging you. But from time to time, we do get fans writing us about their bands. People who actually read the site and know what we’re all about.

Kyle from Massachusetts’ Western Massacre is one such dude. He wrote us a while back saying he “loves the site,” and made particular mention of our boycotting of MySpace, oddly.

Anyways, Kyle writes: “I would really like to get some coverage on Western Massacre’s new debut album,” which is called Freedom Through Violence.

OK, Kyle. We checked your band out, and guess what? You’re not shit.

The band call themselves “death groove” and have shared the stage with the likes of Shadows Fall, Abysmal Dawn, Dead By Wednesday, Revocation, Conducting From The Grave, Diecast, Acaro, Otep, Widow Sunday, The Summoned, and Black Pyramid.

Check them out below, and let us know what you think over on Facebook. Western Massacre — horns up, or thumbs way the fuck down? Let us know. And thanks for reading GSA, Kyle.

    Western Massacre and Kyle Leary are the very definition of the shit.  So happy to see these deserving guys get some attention.
