AGE RESTRICTION: Only Ages 21+ can purchase tickets for this show. NO REFUNDS/EXCHANGES for anyone underage who purchases or attempts to use these tickets. Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PMULCERATEThe unmistakable sound of ULCERATE finds its emotional apex on 6th album “Stare Into Death and Be Still”, as the band emerge from the claustrophobia and dissonance of their recent past to present a next-level exploration of melody, harmony and power.The band’s signature ultra-atmospheric blend of highest order unorthodox Death Metal with the texture of futurist Black Metal is here pared-down with the consummate hand of experience, giving stunning credence to the riff, the song and the meaning.Embracing production clarity, ULCERATE use these songs to fully showcase their other orldly musicianship: a vocal performance from Paul Kelland of unadulterated authority, Michael Hoggard’s guitar and Jamie Saint Merat’s percussion working in tandem with startling skill and originality, simultaneously skewed and heart-rending, often addictively succinct and reveling in strident motifs that hook, haunt and transform the listener with their expressive honesty.Thematically the album explores the concept of “death reverence” – drawing on recent personal experience to confront the truism that death and tragedy aren’t always sudden or violent, that people are often passive observers trapped “in the silent horror of observing death calmly and cleanly”.”Stare Into Death and Be Still” is the deepest, purest and most meticulous form of ULCERATE: a soul-searching conflagration of atypical melodicism, immaculate virtuosic dexterity and sublimated psychological upheaval. A breathtaking new beginning for one of the most uniquely talented bands inextreme music.http://www.ulcerate-official.com/ALTARShttps://altarsdeath.bandcamp.com/musicHATHhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cT6CdYRJmzUhttps://www.facebook.com/HathBand@HathBandNJ

Havok + Toxic Holocaust ~ I Am ~ Hammerhedd ~ DJ Keith Cruelty

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM HAVOKInspired by the burgeoning American thrash metal revival of the mid-2000s, Denver’s Havok assembled in 2004 with an aggressive style that evoked Bay Area thrash legends like Exodus, Metallica, and Testament. Havok’s self-financed early releases got them signed to Candlelight Records, which released Havok’s debut album, Burn, in 2009 and then sent them off to tour with bands like Exodus, Anthrax, Destruction, Primal Fear, and Hammerfall. All of this roadwork only tightened up the group’s impressive chops, and prepared members David Sanchez (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Reece Scruggs (lead guitar), Jessie de los Santos (bass, backing vocals), and Pete Webber (drums) for the recording of their sophomore album, Time Is Up, released in early 2011. Michael Leon replaced de los Santos on bass for 2013’s Unnatural Selection, which earned positive reviews and saw Havok make their Billboard debut. TOXIC HOLOCAUSTA punitive thrash metal project influenced by hardcore punk, west coast hard rock, and proto-death metal bands of the late 90’s such as Discharge, Hellhammer, and Venom, Toxic Holocaust is largely a one- man operation run by Oregon native Joel Grind. Emerging in the lates, the project eventually expanded into a live entity, and by 2020 the group had issued six well-received full-length albums and multiple EPs. Grind founded the band in 1999 in the city of Portland. Writing and recording all of the group’s music himself, he issued a pair of demos (1999’s Radiation Sickness and 2002’s Critical Mass) before unleashing the project’s first full-length effort, Evil Never Dies, in 2003.I AMBrandishing a unique blend of furious thrash and death metal like a weapon of mass destruction, I AM is purely no-nonsense in their patented “Texas Death” assault. Armed with riffs, speed, and overwhelming power, “I AM writes songs that make you want to move” (Decibel Magazine). Across three full-length slabs of bludgeoning intensity and snarling rage, I AM put a Southern stamp and revitalized swagger into deathcore, a subgenre rarely as raw, energized, and diverse as this band. In the spirit of fellow Southern icons Pantera and newer Texan heroes Power Trip, I AM channels discontent and anger into empowering anthems, as likely to inspire a grueling workout as to incite the pit. HAMMERHEDDAbe quit baseball, Eli quit his after-school job, and Henry dropped out of college. The three Ismert brothers who make up Hammerhedd have a natural gift and a greater calling. Perhaps the definition of les enfants terribles, these metal-minded midwesterners from Kansas City are mostly too young to get served at the venues they slay, but you wouldn’t know it to hear their music. Drawing comparisons to contemporaries like Gojira, Meshuggah, and Mastodon, Hammerhedd blend heavy genres into a perfect sludge of driving rhythms, brutal distortion, and just a tinge of melodic mischief. DJ KEITH CRUELTYUnearthing the most hellish sounds from the depths of the heavy metal graveyard, DJ Keith Cruelty will be unleashing a Heavy Iron Fist of Metal Up Your Ass between sets: COMPLETE AND TOTAL STREET METAL HELL!!!

Conan ~ Thra ~ Bone Weapon (Cambridge Hall)

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM**SHOW IS IN CAMBRIDGE HALL** ConanConan are as heavy as interplanetary thunder amplified through the roaring black hole anus of Azathoth. Remember that sentence, for it is writ large in virgin blood on the walls of the forgotten temple of Bol – Krastor , deep in the steaming forests of forgotten Lemuria. Conan, a monumentally brutal three piece (in the grand tradition of all the hallowed three pieces through time) hold a sinew – tight line and an iron – grip command over the uber – synchronised powerchord chan ges and tempo – shifts of the anti – holy trio of bass, drums and guitar. Two weary yet defiant men have the task of vocalising wretched thoughts over the turgid weight of Conan’s metalized bombast. They bear it well, for the task is immense.https://linktr.ee/hailconanThrahttps://thra.bandcamp.com/ Bone Weapon TAPE RELEASE! Paleolithic death and doom.
