The Best St. Louis Metal Shows: September 2013
Intronaut, Vattnet Viskar, the Gorge and White Fire at the Firebird
7 p.m. | $13
Southern California's Intronaut is one of those all-too-rare bands that although hard to categorize, still has a little something for everyone. Technical but not without groove, heavy but melodic, progressive but straight forward, conceptual but direct; the band expertly plays on its many strong points. This expansive sound has earned Intronaut tours with bands as varying as Helmet, Cynic, Mastodon, Animals as Leaders and even a run with Tool last year.
Also on the bill is the blackened doom of New Hampshire's Vattnet Viskar and locals White Fire and the Gorge; the latter of which will be kicking off some tour dates throughout the Midwest beginning tonight. Come check out a great show and pick up the Gorge's excellent new EP and help these boys put some gas in the tank and tacos in the belly.
