august Calendar

Earthling mingles a dark sensibility, which seems equally drawn from Motorhead-ish metalcrust and true kvlt black metal legends like Darkthrone, with some incredible thrash power that comes straight from prime-era Slayer and Metallica. And ohhhhh what a combo it is. Get ready to bang your head and wave devil-horn gestures at the stage as Earthling's Praveen Chhetri and Alan Fary rip off some ridiculously blazing solos. And you can expect some equally mind-blowing metal power from openers Vorator and Hoboknife. I can’t really tell you anything about Loud Night, but the name sure is promising. So hey, fuck the fireworks shows–get all the pyrotechnics you need from a stage full of blazing metal glory at Strange Matter this Tuesday night.

Earthling, Vorator, Hoboknife & Loud Night are coming to Strange Matter on Tuesday, July 4th!
