Kill Matilda bring female powered rock

It’s always a pleasure to hear women rock out. So Vancouver based punk/metal foursome  Kill Matilda provided the perfect adrenaline rush for a long weekend Friday night at the Slice.Kill Matilda killed at the Slice, Sept. 3. Photo by Richard Amery

 Guitarist/ vocalist Dusty Exner, bassist Mykel Exner, lead guitarist Mar and drummer Marcus Luk brought it for sure. They had boundless energy, plenty of  high volume power chords and shouted vocals. '

Plus Mar and Dusty almost shared a kiss during a guitar solo  during a song called “She’s a Killer,” then launched into another song about “Mormon fundamentalists” called “Heaven Bound.”

I couldn’t understand a word Dusty, who sounded like Joan Jett on steroids, was singing, and expected a mosh pit  as their music cries out for one,  as did the band, but that was not to be seen — not this time. She leaped all over the stage and showed moments of impressive vocal range when not screaming.

They were tight, not to mention loud, but the crowd was into it, cheering after each song including one about a “zombie apocalypse. They were fun.
