0 SHOW PREVIEW: Meshuggah, Baroness, Decapitated

Not many bands could weather the kind of adversity that Decapitated have. From a tour accident that took the life of their drummer and put their singer in a coma in '07 to a near catastrophic plane accident last year, this young band who helped breath life back into death metal in the early 00s has not only survived but has consistently released some of the best metal coming out today.

Decapitated's latest record, "Carnival is Forever", builds upon the band's past technical proficiency displayed on records like "Nihility" and the death metal classic, "The Negation", but steps outside the death metal circle just enough to appeal to a larger audience. It's an incredible album!

Decapitated will be in Seattle on Wed, May 9th, where they'll be performing at Showbox Market with label mates, the unmistakable and unrivaled Meshuggah. It's hard to believe that over the last 25 years Meshuggah has only released 7 full length albums. The band's influence on modern metal is undeniable. The band's latest record, "Koloss", is in many ways what one would expect from Meshuggah. That's not a put down. The band are masters at tension and technical ferocity and the entire length of the new record is full of it. If you're a fan of Meshuggah, the band has delivered again!

Also appearing will be Atlanta's Baroness whose new record, "Yellow & Green", will be released this summer on Relapse.
