Brand-new (sort of) Houston hardcore supergroup Pasadena Napalm Division, featuring alumni of deadhorse, D.R.I. and Dethkultur BBQ, made a most excellent official debut before a mostly full Warehouse Live studio Saturday night. Rocks Off was impressed by the five-piece's taut, seething songs, which reminded his ears of "Thieves"-era Ministry: overpowering, ear-blistering and surprisingly kinetic. A few more pictures after the jump, and click here to see a mini-slideshow of the pit - click fast enough and it looks like one of those old-school animation flip books! - Chris Gray
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
