As we continue our collective slog through resolution season, This One Goes Eleven is proud to announce not only our first 2015 showcase but the perfect way to make good on that “more metal shows” pledge, bringing Horrendous, Aritificial Brain, Throaat, and Kosmodemonic to The Acheron for a face-meltathon of star-destroying proportions on Saturday, 1/31. Two of best bands currently operating under the American death metal banner, Philly-based Horrendous and local rippers Artificial Brain (featuring Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo and former Biolich vocalist, Will Smith) are set to put their stellar 2014 full lengths on mind-splattering display, living up to the accolades heaped on them in recent weeks.
Named the third best metal LP of 2014 by both Stereogum and Decibel, Horrendous’ Ecdysis has been hailed (by us, among others) as an instant modern metal classic, while Artificial Brain’s Labyrinth Constellation rode it’s obscenely technical tantrums and sci-fi good times into Spin and the Village Voice’s respective best-ofs. To have both crushing the same stage on the same night is almost embarrassingly exciting and a must-see spectacle for any Brooklyn hesher, especially when you throw supporting sets from Throaat and Kosmodemonic into the bone-crushing blender. Tickets are just $10, so grab them while you still can.
