When I was but a wee lad, actually in my 20’s and fairly large for my age, I had attended shows whenever I could. I was in college, as I had spoke about this before, and had a hunger for music that has continued to this day. Luckily, being in college in very north New York, the presence of live music was not normal, but not rare, but there were plenty of people who helped to satiate my hunger for new and exciting music, and the creation of it. This culminated in attending shows in various areas of New York, mostly Syracuse area, and one massive show in New Jersey, which was Hellfest, the extreme music festival that was originally held in Syracuse but was moved to Elizabethtown, New Jersey in 2004. On the third stage, which was a room where they basically held kids’ parties, I watched a band that had not only grabbed my attention through the sheer ferocity of their music, but also through their incredible stage antics, including the lead singer busting his nose with his own mic, and the rest of the band acting like maniacs with their instruments. That band was spoke about by my compatriot, E.J., before they played. That band was The Minor Times.
