Comments:
If you’re into crossover thrash then this show is mandatory. Both Power Trip, crossbreakers from Dallas, and Iron Reagan, a band with several members of Municial Waste, just released new albums in February and this show will be a perfect chance to hear them live while you practice your ninja skills in the mosh pit. Be sure get there early to catch DC’s own Genocide Pact, those guys are sick!

The 9:30 Club’s event page for this concert is here

Comments:
Sunn O))) are probably the biggest drone band there is. Their songs are so slow that there really aren’t any riffs per se, this is not music to work out to at the gym. Their live show is something akin to being sucked into a black hole; time loses meaning and it’s incredibly loud. So loud in fact, that when they played at the Black Cat in 2012 I saw a bottle of liquor vibrate off the shelf behind the bar and shatter on the floor. Bring ear plugs, don’t worry, you’ll still be able to hear everything perfectly.

Comments:
Nails is more of a hardcore or powerviolence band than a metal band. The California based band has been getting a lot of praise for their album You Will Never Be One Of Us which dropped in the summer of 2016. Toxic Holocaust is a throwback thrash metal band and the opener Gatecreeper is an Arizona based death meta band with a sound reminiscent of old school Swedish bands (think Unleashed, Grave) crossed with Bolt Thrower. That’s a pretty great line up for just $16!

Comments:
This show is the 6th Anniversary Party for DC Brau and since it is happening during the week of the Craft Brewers Conference (taking place in DC this year), you can expect to run into a lot of brewers from around the country at this show. It also means that this show may end up selling out, so don’t wait around to get tickets if you want to be sure you get in. This isn’t a part of a tour, Baroness is playing this show before they head out on a European tour a few weeks later. Oh, and be sure to check out local openers Trans Am, an old school post rock band that is also instrumental.

This is actually a pretty decent show for the price, a lot cheaper than the Pentagram show going on the same night also in Baltimore. WeedIsWeed features Dave Sherman who has been in a ton of the area’s bands over the years like Earthride, Spirit Caravan and The Obsessed, and also Gary Isom who is also a local metal veteran. Snakefeast plays an experimental style of metal that uses a saxophone. Blood Mist just released a new album on Grimoire Records and Asthma Castle is a stoner band that features Misery Index and Pig Destroyer drummer Adam Jarvis behind the kit.

Comments:
Dysrhythmia is one of my favorite instrumental bands. Both Colin Marston and Kevin Hufnagle have joined tech death legends Gorguts, but Dysrhythmia isn’t death metal, though they are technical. The three piece plays complex, serpentine songs that manage to be catchy and just rock at the same time, a rare feat.

Angelcorpse is one of those death metal bands from the 90s that have gotten back together, though they were one of the early band to have a more blackened style of death metal. I remember they used to open on a ton of tours back in the day but I guess they’ve built up a following at this point and will be headlining when they come to the Pinch with New Yorkers Black Anvil.

Comments:
Sabaton is a power metal band from Sweden with an obsession with military history. Their energy and chemistry on stage is pretty infectious and they are known for putting on great live performances. They’re playing with Leaves’ Eyes, a female fronted symphonic metal band from (mostly) Germany that is now fronted by Elina Siirala. The opener is Battle Beast, a melodic metal band from Finland. Oh and btw, despite the tour being named “The Last Tour,” Sabaton isn’t breaking up. Their most recent album is titled The Last Stand and they just named the tour The Last Tour to go with it.
