I.) LIVE @ SHFL-HOUSTON TX 1/1/12:
A wall of fuzzed out noize and minimal "percussion" assaults a crows in Houston.
Swirling mists of electronics whir and fill the atmosphere with static.A pulse can
rears it's head.You can feel the anticipation of the crowd as the song builds up.
Sharp static cuts like a knife through a fog of noize.Twisting sounds intermingle.
Flowing in and out of each other.The intensity is still building like a bomb preparing
to explode.Feedback rings and the air raid sirens sound.War has come to Texas.
Screaming electronics and the enthusiastic voices of the cheering crowd.Blackened
screams lost in reverb and delay follow rallying the troops and assaulting the townspeople.
The atmosphere is massive.Screams call all brave souls to fight and a high pitched shriek
rings out along with cheers of the frenzied gathering.Noize reaches out to all four directions
inspiring moral and causing devastation at the same time.The sound is blistering.High screams
and hardcore punk style mentality.RU-486 has come to tear down the walls and leave nothing
in their wake.Electronics shriek louder than before and feedback attacks.The vocals sound pissed
the fuck off.This is how live entertainment should be.Brutal and in your fucking face.Applaud from
the audience and a friendly "Welcome to Texas from RU-486"
II.) LIVE @ THE TAVERN-HATTIESBURG MS 4/22/11:
A low fog floods the room of a tavern in Hattiesburg as spoken samples speak in an unnatural
deep tone.Again RU-486 just has a way of letting the anticipation build before striking out at
the listeners.If this is their first show for a band like this I doubt they know what they are in for.
The overall vibe is intense as always and personal.A high shriek signals the crowds reaction as
a churning deep bass rythm begins.The vocals are louder this time around and twice as pissed
as side A.Spewing out filth upon the audience.Harsh static punches the air in intervals along with
those brutal hardcore declarations of war.High frequency noize and static sharp as a spinning saw
blade.It is almost as if RU-486 is insulting the crowd and poking em in the chest like "Hey you,
Fuck you!"He then says "Kill each other now" and all hell breaks loose in the form of a barrage
of Harsh noize and pounding hammer smashed metallic percussion.All backed by a death industrial
pulse.The set ends with "Were RU-486 and your fucked!"The crowd of the tavern couldn't be happier.
III.) LIVE @ NO SILENCE NO SLEEP FEST-DALLAS TX 3/13/10:
Spoken word samples in a layer of static.A warning of the oncoming onslaught.Noize floods the
room.Quiet at first and then all out war.Feedback like a waterfall of razors.Vocals like a throat
grinding the blades and spitting them fourth.Pissed and full of hate.Insane high screams and full
on noize chaos.No silence.No sleep.No remorse.Rallying messages of hate are screamed with passion
like a WWII speech calling to fight for victory.The vocals become louder and even more hateful as
dizzying loops of feedback are sent fourth like the grinding wheels of tanks rolling into Dallas.It seems
RU-486 has a thing for ear fucking the shit out of whoever is present in the same room.Low dense
rumbles of noize and feedback from hell.A final high end shriek and mass applause.I'd call that a good night.
A RARE CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THREE LIVE SETS IN ONE NIGHT FROM ONE OF THE MOST
PUNISHING BANDS IN THE GENRE.TEXAS HAS GONE TO WAR WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.
