Hating the devil.

7:30 p.m., the Village. $17 adv., $20 d.o.s.

Spiritual warfare is serious business. At least for the legions of fans of the Christian metalcore band Demon Hunter who have the group's symbol, a demon skull (sort of like a goat's) with a bullet through it, tattooed on them. Or maybe it just looks hard. The lines are easily blurred in the Christian death metal scene, where melody is important, but only as a counterpoint to sonic annihilation, where songs are about faith, but are sung incomprehensibly. It may not square for you, but you better believe that the Village will be packed to the brim on Wednesday. Demon Hunter comes to town with Living Sacrifice, historically one of Little Rock's most popular acts. In fact, because of Living Sacrifice, Little Rock was the epicenter of the Christian metalcore movement in the '90s. Apart for five years, the band has reformed, with not quite the original line-up, but one that's not likely to draw any complaints. In the same ilk, Oh Sleeper, the Famine and Advent open.
