More About

Death metal is the most divisive force in the world today. Yes, even more divisive than Palestine, or Europe's proton-dividing Large Hadron Collider. To fans, death metal's blast beats and growling vocals are awesomeness incarnate. To others, it sounds like a long, amplified belch. We suggest the latter group steer well clear of the belatedly named "New Year's Bash" at the Clubhouse, where a bone-jarring alliance of local metal bands promises to push the limits of cochlear tolerance. The headliner is The Asylum, an apocalypse-minded quintet from Tempe whose repertoire includes a fairly radical cover of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." The top-billed opening band is Scottsdale's Laconic, a quartet of sneering sonic brutes whose taste for tremolo guitar riffs and sepia-toned vanity photos has no apparent bounds. Melodic death-metal rockers Loren Battle (from Phoenix) are next, followed by We Own the Sky, another Phoenix band that operates one of the bitchin'-est-looking MySpace pages we've ever seen (think "fiery airline disaster"). Two more Valley-based metal bands — Where Is the Glory and Cold Blooded Theory — are on the bill, and if that doesn't satisfy your nightly appetite for wanton musical destruction, you may want to consult a doctor.
