Inter Arma, who are currently signed to Relapse Records, is a hard band to pin a subgenre on. The best thing I have been able to come up with to describe them is to say they sound like a really pissed off Neurosis. Their live shows are always intense so don’t skip this one. Also on the tour with Inter Arma is Yautja, a Tennessee based sludge/grind band that is named after the species of alien in the Predator movies. The local support on this bill comes from the excellent Drugs Of Faith. The band has developed a sound known as grind n roll that is just as angry, but quite a bit more catchy, than your standard grind band. This is a pretty awesome bill and you’re not going to want to miss any of these bands so get there early! Now give a listen to these tracks by the bands below as you leave your comment telling me your favorite area band from VA, MD or DC!
Inter Arma – ‘sblood
Yautja – Denihilist
Drugs Of Faith – Insanity
