-Ween 1996-2007 I saw these guys about 10 or 11 times and each time I had an absolute blast. No Shame!!!

Old Iron finished 2012 strong with an impressive set at Chop Suey on 12/28. The trio also features Jesse from Sandrider and boasts an interesting take on melodic doom metal that demands your attention.
