Rigor Mortis, Carry the Storm, Critical Assembly, Decimation Theory, and Mechanisms of a False Reality – Live In Houston, Texas – Saturday, October 1

Rigor Mortis and four modern metal bands are going to tear up the outskirts of Houston, Texas on Saturday October 1 from 8 – 11 pm.

You all know Rigor Mortis as innovators in the realm of non-effete melodic metal, intricate song structures, daring instrumentals and a bizarre and disturbing sense of humor. Now you have a chance to see the original line-up live, after a short drive (by H-town standards) and some metalcore.

Warbeast needs your votes

The Dallas Observer has set up a democratic poll to very democratically elect a local band as “Best Metal Act” of the year.

Naturally, every band and their dog’s dogs are gaming this system, in tribute to the true nature of democracy (buying votes with lies).

That means that in order to compete, all contestants need to rig the vote… see where this is going?

Warbeast is the latest band of Rigor Mortis vocalist Bruce Corbitt, who is also interviewed on our site.

He could use your votes.
