A colossus metal tour will be stopping at The Cabooze in Minneapolis on Friday, March 24th. Carnifex and Despised Icon will be teaming up with Rings of Saturn, Fallujah and Lorna Shore. Did you get all that?! Right there is a top tier list of some of the best bands in the metalcore scene right now. The fact that they are all playing in one night should be enough to get you a wee bit excited!
Carnifex, from California, is easily one of the more powerful bands I’ve ever seen live. Getting a chance to see them share the stage with such a legendary group as Despised Icon (from Montreal Quebec) will be nothing short of a treat. Both bands have more power and energy than your average local metal band and they promise to bring a sense of brutality to your Friday night while still keeping an extremely high bar as far as talent goes. Both bands are sure to get even the most passive metalhead into the mosh pit.
There will be no local groups opening this show, which is a bit odd for a metal show like this in the Twin Cities, but when you bands like Rings of Saturn, Fallujah, and Lorna Shore to start off the night, I don’t know that the fans could really take much more. So grab a friend and prepare yourself for some bruises… Friday night may get a bit rowdy.
