Featuring members of AMERICAN HERITAGE and BLOOD OF THE TYRANT, local trio HEAVING MASS skillfully blend earth-shaking metal riffery with a keen sense of rhythm, resulting in songs that explode with quick tempos and barrel through speakers with enough gravity to satisfy the most doom-obsessed of listeners. Minneapolis’ WITCHDEN vent frustration amid dank guitar assaults and burnt-throat screams on extremely heavy, raw, dirty and crushing sludge. On their debut LP, Consulting the Bones WITCHDEN prove they are superb musicians and in the words of The Sludgelord, “brilliant stuff and highly recommended.” With a self-titled album out on Plastic Airlines Records and comprised of ex-members of AUTHORITY ABUSE, HEWHOCORRUPTS, LETTERBOMBS and OFF YOURSELF, CHICAGO THRASH ENSEMBLE take traditional 80's thrash metal to the next level and open tonight’s early metal extravaganza.
