Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, Revocation, On Enemy Soil and Nemesis


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Thu., June 21, 7 p.m. 2012 All Ages


The smorgasbord of treats and company at this show is like a metal cocktail party. There's Revocation, an eclectic, tasty bowl of mixed nuts resting on the coffee table. Their brimming, salty bowl is filled with meaty melodic death metal, complex progressive thrash, and a little hardcore barking here and there, which leaves something to be desired. Don't worry, you can just pick around those vocals like walnuts. Dying Fetus is the obnoxious party guest on uppers that corners you talking a mile a minute about things you don't understand. Their death metal has some time signature experimentation and arpeggio sweeps that fascinate at first, but after a while you'll need to slip away and freshen your drink. Finally, Six Feet Under is the awkward couple that couldn't find a babysitter, so they brought their precocious six-year-old—let's call him Chris Barnes. You could care less about the parents, but the scathing, classic death-metal vocals that come out of that kid make him the center of attention. Party on! ARIS WALES
