WarAnimal are three kids from Portland, Maine, who have a habit of singing their own band name in their songs. I saw them a couple nights ago at a basement show in Brooklyn, sharing a bill with Acid Tiger and Canada's Barnburner. I can't say they're the tightest or most original band, but they won me (and the 8 other people who stuck around) over with their enthusiastic mix of Motorhead, crust punk, and Killers-era Maiden. And for the low, low price of $6.66 I got the most lovingly handcrafted and environmentally friendly cd packaging I've ever seen for a metal band.
