What’s heavier than heavy? How about a co-headlining tour of Oceano and I Declare War? The two groups stop by House of Rock on Thursday during the Heavier Than Heavy Tour with The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Barrier. Doors are at 6 p.m.
Conceived in 2006, Oceano is comprised of former members of several Chicago metal outfits, and together are rapidly becoming one of the standouts of the Chicago extreme metal scene. Describing themselves as one of the angriest bands on Earth, Oceano channel this through their music, creating in the process some of the heaviest, most guttural and all-out brutal music to be found anywhere.
Seattle’s I Declare War is a force to be reckoned with in the death core scene. The technical skill of the band is showcased when they find themselves in front of fans and fellow musicians.
Wild Party gets its groove on early and often with its bright, power pop. They’ll be playing the early show Friday at House of Rock. Doors are at 5 p.m.
The San Antonio quartet quickly gained attention in the U.K. with its debut “Phantom Pop” and is now building attention in the U.S. with its DIY approach. Their follow-up release was the EP “All Nighter” and will soon be releasing its latest album “Phantom Pop.”
In Friday’s late show, hip hop and more takes center stage with Liquid Assassin, Error: Defect, Big Body Hella, U.S.E and Shattered Mic. Doors are at 7 p.m.
Liquid Assassin is a solo artist from Minnesota who was one half the group Grave Plott. Liquid Assassin has released four solo albums, including 2013′s “Mongrel.” Error: Defect is a metal/hip hop/hardcore band from Falfurrias. They have a demo available at the show.
