This trio consisting of Eric Big Arm (guitar), Reuben Kaiban (drums and lead vocals) and Natalie Grace Sweet (bass). This was a special night for DIE GROUP, as they were also celebrating a special occasion: the release of their latest album Disease Control.
Loud and aggressive, the temperature in the room only increased as they started their set. Their brand of garage punk had bodies bumping into each other, getting my evening started off proper. I watched in awe as Eric Bar Arm shred for most of the set while wearing zipped up, double breasted leather jacket, contemplating his level off bad-assedness because I would have funking passed out because of the heat. That visual aesthetic was pretty funking punk.
By the time they concluded their set, a shirtless Reuben fell off his drum stool and lay sprawled on the stage in a puddle of his own sweat as Natalie, who had also taken off her own shirt teased him with a concluding bass riff. They may have been personally exhausted, but they turned the party atmosphere up a notch and had the room buzzing with adrenaline…”
