Italy's Rhapsody of Fire (formerly just Rhapsody, and Thundercross before that) delivers a dose of symphonic metal at The Palladium. Australia's purveyors of prog-metal Voyager is on tour with Rhapsody of Fire. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. with homegrown talent Aversed, Forevers' Fallen Grace, and In Harm's Way.
At Ralph's Diner, the amazing Negura Bunget (in video) from Romania headlines with support from fellow countrymen Din Brad, and Canadian death troupe Eclipse Eternal. Don't sleep on this one. Negura Bunget offers an engrossing blend of seething black-metal fury tempered with melodic detours. Transylvanian folklore binds the package nicely. Haethen was recently added to the show, which gets under way at 9 p.m.
