Black Thunder and The Jump Off shake up the Slice

Lethbridge got a slice of Saskatchewan punk and metal as  Black Thunder and the Jump Off stopped by the Slice to shake the walls.

I barely caught the end of the Supervoid’s set, though was just in time for The Jump Off.

The Jump Off payed high energy alternative rock with the bassist / vocalist also adding a few extra keyboards for a touch of ’80s new wave/ synth pop balanced with full throttle angst.

 There was a massive bass growl throughout and a little bit of hooky guitar.

 As always Black Thunder were all about big, beefy, loud, guitar riffs reminiscent of the best of the ’70s hard rock and metal music.

 In addition to big sludgy riffs, they also had elements of Detroit ’70s pre punk along the line of Iggy and the Stooges and MC5.The Jump Off making their Lethbridge debut. Photo by Richard Amery
They were done by 12:30 a.m.
