SPAZZ FEST V PREVIEW: “Metal Night” at Hard Times, Thursday March 20

“Metal Night” returns with Acirema, Exalted, Parallels, No Quarter, Dear Desolate, Assailant at Hard Times. Doors open at 5:30 PM. Get ready to thrash and mosh your brains out.


Acirema is a long time player in Greenville’s metal scene. A reconstituted line up and new album (The Ghost You’ve Become) have reinvigorated the band. Their brand of Swedish melo-death/thrash metal will undoubtedly blow away the crowd. Bring your old sneakers, cuz it’s about to get nasty.

“American Nightmare”


Out of Greenville, Exalted‘s brand of deathcore is influenced by such luminaries as he Black Dahlia Murder, Meshuggah, and Dream Theater. It’s at once beautiful and dark.

“Forfeit the Cause” (ft. Logan Lawson)
