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.
