PAUL SCHRAG: WEHRMACHT â€" FUN TO SAY, FUN TO WATCH >>>
Portland-based beer-core metal maniacs Wehrmacht will be at Hellâ€™s Kitchen tonight, with a solid line-up following a series of band re-organizations. The remnants of the bandâ€™s original line up went on to form bands like Spazztic Blurr, Cryptic Slaughter, Drumattica and Tri-polar, and have played with rock luminaries such as Sweaty Nipples, Everclear, Nervous Christians and Bastard Children of the Roman Empire. Drummer Brian Lehfeldt became a criminal defense attorney. The band, named after military defense forces in pre-WWII-Germany, was formed in Portland, Ore., and is known for creating the shortest metal song ever â€" â€œMicro-E!â€, which lasts all of 0.1 seconds.
They have recently reformed with the original, 1985 line-up, and have taken to the road again, spreading their message of drunken horror to a new generation. Awesome.
