The Best St. Louis Metal Shows in November 2013
Dysrhythmia, Zevious, the Gorge and the Vanguard Party at Fubar
7 p.m. / $10
Do you love heavy music, have a terrible caffeine addiction and a slight case of A.D.D.? Then, boy, have we got the show for you. Philadelphia's Dysrhythmia has been boggling minds for some fifteen years now with its complex, dizzying progressive instrumentals. The band has been pushing limits and bending musical rules with releases on Relapse Records throughout its career, before a recent move to Profound Lore with last year's highly acclaimed Tests of Submission album. How the trio finds time to tour is a mystery, considering two-thirds of it are also full-time members of Gorguts (who just released one of the most impressive albums of the year). Dysrhythmia's influence in modern metal runs deep, as is evident in opening bands Zevious, the Vanguard Party and St. Louis' absolute tightest metal band, the Gorge. A night of complex rhythms, lighting-fast scales and all-around inventive musicianship is to be expected, along with the occasional bone-shaking groove.
