There are three metal shows happening July 27th, 29th and 30th, all three have pretty big lineups, and with a wide-range of “metal” sounds, too, making all three equally recommended. On Thursday, July 27th at The Fifty, come on down to support touring acts Demonsmoke & Morbid Fascination, with Wicked Haven acting as the local support for this intense and awesome show. If you happen to like Wicken Haven, you’ll want to check out the “Make Salem Metal Again” show at Shotskis on the 29th, with them, AND Dead Thrall, Lotta, Feel Connected, Aether Theory, Choke The Silence, Renascenta & Amerikan Overdoese also on the bill! Crazy! But, if you want something a little weirder, then you need to come on down to the Space Concert Club on the 30th, for Herd William, Don Haugen, Fischkopf Sinfoniker & Eater of Hope, for a doomier show (as part of the Sunday Service Mutations Showcases they put on). So much metal in one weekend, that you are bound to get rocked pretty hard after having a pretty mellow time last weekend.
