In 2008, Richmond was at the peak of its crust punk scene. Tons of great local bands brought friends from across the country on tour stops in RVA. We had some awesome fests and gatherings. Directly after Kollapse Fest in March 2008, Tragedy came through and played with Parasytic, Appalachian Terror Unit, and SSR.
To this day, Parasytic are one of my all-time favorite bands. They’re one of those perfect mergings of punk and metal; friends and family. Total perfection! This is one of my favorite photos of Ethan from Parasytic; capturing the energy and mayhem of the show. I’ve got my fingers crossed that the stars will align and Parasytic will play together again in the new year!
