Obey the Ooze is a gaggle of dudes sick of playing by the rules of metal. They handed in their badges and guns to the heavy metal gods and mumbled something about being "too old" for this shit. Fans of all styles of music, Obey the Ooze seeks to craft a fun, dance-heavy take on the riffiest type of shit around. They remain flexible enough to incorporate just about anything from funk to sludge to polka if they happen to feel like it at the moment. The end goal is to create an ungodly anomaly that's impossible to categorize and even harder to ignore. Live shows may include ruckus, too many shots, dudes flashing bottom-sac and lots of rock and roll.http://tophatsandeffigies.bandcamp.com/

The Savannah scene has produced so many great bands you'd be excused for thinking that sludge is in the water there, but there's no excuse for overlooking BLACK TUSK. Comparisons of 'Taste The Sin' to bands BLACK TUSK considers brothers only tell part of the tale; the band's sophomore release and first for Relapse Records rips into you with locomotive riffing and powerful percussion, creating a furious display that incorporates the fury of punk and the precision of thrash metal within a familiar Southern-fried landscape.

105 invited, 8 attending.
FIGHT AMPUTATION is a heavy, grungy, hardcore punk crossed with sludgerock trio from the seedy underbelly of Philadelphia's thriving noise rock scene. Drawing influence from Dead Kennedys, Cherubs, all things AmRep, His Hero Is Gone, Eyehategod, skateboarding, and foreclosed suburban ghost towns, FIGHT AMP has crafted a sound similar to early Melvins filtered through Queens of the Stone Age.
Founded by long time friends and co-combatants Chris Spencer from New York noise stalwarts Unsane, and Steve Austin, Today is the Day’s human guided missile system, UXO are decorated survivors, veterans of countless insurgent noise rock tours and wars, campaigns waged from the early nineties through the approaching collapse of the western world.https://grizzlordestroys.bandcamp.com/

Emerging from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Alustrium is introducing the world to a new form of progressive death metal. From intense, technical riffs to lengthy, soulful solos, Alustrium creates a unique blend between melody and fierce brutality. In December of 2010, the band entered the studio under the banner of Toil Records and recorded its debut album, An 'Absence Of Clarity', which was released world wide in the fall of 2011. Following two years of playing shows throughout the northeast of America, Alustrium recorded their much awaited sophomore album; an album containing even more diversity and raw talent than their previous work. 'A Tunnel To Eden' was released in July of 2015 and quickly became a contender for multiple "Album Of The Year" projections. Fans of death metal and progressive metal alike can anticipate a sound unlike any they have heard before. Prepare yourselves, for none can stand up to the onslaught of Alustrium.https://www.facebook.com/DreamOfScipio/timeline
Formed in Ansonia, CT 2011, Dream of Scipio took the CT Metal Scene by storm. Mashing together elements of hardcore, technical, and death metal they quickly grew into a 5 headed monster making them a real contender in the CT music scene.https://www.facebook.com/AciusCT/
Acius is a Progressive Metal band from Madison, Connecticut. The name is derived from the word acies which is latin for battlefield. Later, we decided to change the spelling so it would be less confusing to pronounce. Everyday is a battle, the moment you get out of bed you get on that battlefield and our music is about the constant battles of living and the various emotions and consequences involved in life. We currently have a 6 song EP, and we are playing shows in New England. New songs are in the works!https://www.facebook.com/%C3%84mniv%C3%B3r-474888652672149/
In 2015 founding members of Philadelphia band “Thee Citadel” Bob Hughes, Jason Carr and Chris Elliott scored a new vocalist, Damian Gioia (Necropolis, Live Suffer Die, Unscarred). However, with the new vocalist came a new sound and a need for a new start for the band of more than 20 years. A new name seemed like the final step in the now, “Ämnivór’s” new beginning. Vocalist, Gioia said it best, “We felt we needed a new beginning. And changing the name was the way to get out of our own shadow.”https://www.facebook.com/mesmeria1/
Another Fantastic night of Heavy Metal at The Tusk at Woolly Mammoth! Awesome Philly bands Alustrium, Ämnivór, and Mesmeria host Connecticut's Dream of Scipio and Acius! Be sure you don't miss this awesome night of music and a chance to support some badass touring bands!

Malignancy plays very intense, crushing brutal death metal out of Yonkers, NY (US) and are known for their seamless variations between hyper-technical riffing and unsurpassable NYDM style breakdowns. With each release, Malignancy increases speed, technicality, eccentric intensity and originality. Touring on the heels of their latest slab of technical brutality Eugenics. One of the most entertaining band you will ever see live. Between the sick music, Danny's killer banter this is one band not to be missed. See you in the pit!https://www.facebook.com/EATTHETURNBUCKLE
