Yeah, yeah, yeah...we get it Mondays suck (we've read Garfield). But it means the start of a new week, which means a bunch of killer shows in and around Phoenix. And here are a few of the coolest, our top five must-see shows this week.

Monday, November 26: Atriarch @ Trunk Space

Self-described as "a living entity comprised of four parts, offering catharsis through sonic ritual," Portland, Oregon-based death rock band Atriarch will attempt to violate whatever might remain of your delicate sensibilities. I'm not entirely sure what they mean when they say their "aim is to tear a hole in the veil that blinds us from our true selves," as the only thing torn was my eardrums.

Their latest album Ritual of Passing released on Profound Lore Records, is full of heavy, from lyrics to rapid-fire bass, to an ever present synthesizer. These guys seem to have found a formula that works in the genre. One that can easily be tweaked to allow the band to experiment as needed. "Altar" exemplifies this with a 6-minute speech, that definitely dips into the punk rock pool.

They will be hitting Trunk Space on Monday, November 26th, and finishing up their latest tour with a stop in L.A. -- Richard Noel
