In Death We Rise with 3 Inches of Blood, Malakai and Hells Eden Darkside, 2106 E. Platte Ave. Sunday, Oct. 2, 7:30 p.m. $8-$10; visit ticketweb.com for tickets.
In Death We Rise is proving to be quite the musical force. They recently landed in the middle of the hurricane exodus zone of Baton Rouge to find their show, not surprisingly, had been cancelled. Some college students insisted the show be relocated to their living room, and with little notice, an audience showed up to rock out.
The Colorado Springs quartet's XfashionXmetalXrockXcoreX face-melting guitar riffs and triumphant chord progressions are enough to rock the black socks off of any pre-pubescent. Glorious guitar harmonies are ripped to shreds by vocalist Ryan Moore's harsh screams, and it comes together beautifully. See them rise above the masses of XcoreX bands when they open for 3 Inches of Blood on Sunday at Darkside.
