Biblical – Sound Academy, Toronto

If a band describes their sound as “mountain splitting and oceans parting” they damn well better prove it. Biblical does. In spades. Their heavy, sludgy and rumbling version of rock n roll kicked off the night at Sound Academy in support of Death From Above 1979

Touring their latest record “Monsoon Season” (New Damage Records), Biblical ripped through their extended jams with energy and purpose.
