RWAKE
8:30 p.m. Revolution. $8.

Oh man, this all-ages show is gonna be a do-not-miss for metal fiends. You've got Snakedriver, the totally badass purveyors of crusty, metallic hardcore in the vein of His Hero is Gone or Despise You (though the band is becoming increasingly more musically complex). You've got 2013 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase winners The Sound of the Mountain, bringing in the sweepingly cinematic and cerebral post-rock heaviness. You've got Memphis stalwarts The Dirty Streets with their amp-exploding power-trio psych-blooze damage.

And then you've got Rwake, who probably don't need much of an introduction in these pages. The band has released four albums, at least four of which are unquestionably classics of inspired, inventive Southern metal. This show will be the first to feature three guitarists, with former member Chris Newman rejoining the ranks for what's sure to be a triple-threat six-string metal meltdown. Rwake will be playing tunes off their most recent long-player, "Rest," as well as cuts from "Voices of Omens," including the epic "Leviticus" and "Of Grievous Abominations."
