Lazy, summer daze here at Mass Metal, so just going to chat up a few shows then get back to the beach.
Thursday, Aug. 23, is the night to find a load of the good stuff. Out by Boston, Fog Wizard, Faces of Bayon, Mucklers Circle, and Dyslexic Fudgicle are at Radio in Somerville, while in Worcester (of course) Metal Thursday holds court at Ralph’s Diner with Elder, Nocuous, Dead Languages, and Rozamov.
|A Fury Divine|
There’s a monster Saturday night, Aug. 25, in Turners Falls at the Shea Theater where an all-ages metal throw down begins at 5 p.m. A Fury Divine, Our Darkest Day, Your Pain is Endearing, Mechanical Process, This Coming End, Stowik Seizure, The Lost & Never Found, and Matt & Kim’s Rock Shop get it done.
Kataklysm brings a blast of Canadian tech death to The Palladium in Worcester on Wednesday, Aug. 29. Fleshgod Apocalypse, Vital Remains, The Flooding, and In Harm’s way are also performing, and the show starts at 7 p.m.
Finally got my hands on The Summoned’s “If Only Minds Could Paint Pictures” after the band’s fierce set at Summer Slaughter. With its long wending arrangements, “If Only…” is great disc to bliss out to. And that’s the game plan now.
