Tag: 3 Inches of Blood
From eardrum-shredding riffs to raunchy stand-up comedy, orange-tinted little people and Rob Zombie’s giant, dancing robots, Mayhem Festival had a little something for everybody Tuesday at Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre. Except for maybe soccer moms. And nuns. And Justin Bieber fans. And …
Well, you get the picture. Metalheads were pretty pleased with a lineup that – along with the esteemed Mr. Zombie – included metal mammoths Korn, Lamb of God, 3 Inches of Blood, Hatebreed, Five Finger Death Punch and more. Here’s some of what earned devil horn salutes on a sweltering summer day (all photos by Ernest Jasmin.) And when you’re done looking at these, check out staff photog Drew Perine’s gallery over here.
3 Inches of Blood may technically be a gang of Dungeons & Dragons obsessed Canadian metalheads. But here at TRC we give them an honorary Grit City pass for (a) living in Tacoma when they wrote “Fire Up the Blades” a few years back with Slipknots Joey Jordison, (b) for rocking our faces off whenever they come to town and play Hell’s Kitchen, and (c) for just being a swell bunch of guys. So here’s some of the insanity that ensued after these kinda-sorta Tacomans headlined Mayhem Festival’s parking lot stage Tuesday evening.
P.S. There are more videos, photos and notes from Mayhem on the way, some of them featuring Oompa Loompas. Yes, orange-tinted little people with green hair. Seriously.
OK, one more installment. Hope you like watchin’ these as I like shootin’ ‘em.
A bunch of you just saw Vancouver thrash-metal torchbearers 3 Inches of Blood at Hell’s Kitchen last Saturday (footage here.) Now you can see those guys, with actual torchbearers and other medieval stuff, thanks to a brand, spankin’ new video for “Battles and Brotherhood.”
Hey, nice mead drooling, Cam Pipes!
Vancouver, BC’s 3 Inches of Blood returned to Tacoma this weekend to pay tribute to fallen former bass player Brian Redman. Here is some video from early this morning at Hell’s Kitchen. Hit the “more” button for the next clip, and stay tuned. I may have some good stuff to share from the Jet City Fix performance, too.
So 3IOB had to wait until this weekend to return to it’s home away from home (the bulk of 2007’s “Fire Up the Blades” was written in T-town) for a tribute show. The band will headline a benefit for Redman’s widow, Dana, on Saturday (Nov. 7) at Hell’s Kitchen, a bill that also includes locals Monuments Collide, the Jet City Fix and Glimpse.
Recently I caught up with 3IOB vocalist Cam Pipes who talked about how he learned the bad news. Click here to listen to some of what he had to say about Brian’s time in the band and learning about his tragic accident.
Then click the “more” button to check out a cool video CMH Pro posted from the Oct. 2 memorial show at Doyle’s.

That night’s bill will also include local favorites the Jet City Fix, Glimpse and Monuments Collide with a 9 p.m. start time and a minimum $10 donation requested. Proceeds will go to Redman’s wife, Dana, Connel said.

For those who couldn’t be there, here’s a clip of Dirty Knockers paying tribute to their fallen band mate, the late, great Brian Redman. An army of local rockers, including Zeke, Glimpse, Top Heavy Crush, Helm’s Alee, Pioneers West, the F—ing Eagles and many more, turned out to Doyle’s Public House to see him off. Rest in peace, Brian.
