Arsis performs at Emergency Room
Virginia’s Arsis specializes in senses-numbing thrash outbursts as technical as the flight manual to a 747.
The band’s guitarists go at one another like a couple of stray pit bulls fighting over some roadkill, churning out knotty, angular riffs topped by sandpaper-coarse death-metal growls. It’s some brutal stuff, the musical equivalent of a series of gruesome autopsy photos.
How fitting, then, that the band plays at 6:30 p.m. at the Emergency Room, 3550 S. Decatur Blvd. Tickets are $10; call 227-6363.
