Even before relocating to Conception Street, Alabama Music Box has always been one of the best downtown venues for the Halloween season. 2020 has created challenges for this eclectic venue. However, Alabama Music Box is not going to let a little thing like a pandemic get in the way of its love for the season. Four bands will bring an explosion of dark metal sounds to summon the spirit of Halloween. Those planning to attend should bring a mask.
Son of a Gun will be headlining this event. Before the pandemic, the band had resurrected its crunchy metal sound as a calling to its dedicated fan base. As is the case with many local bands, Son of a Gun has been seeking shows wherever they are available. From melodic overtures to grinding grooves, Son of a Gun’s versatile metal sound is a pure shot of adrenaline to its unsuspecting crowd.
For decades, Florida has celebrated a rich metal scene that stretches as far as the state’s coastline. Fort Walton Beach remains one of Florida’s hotbeds for metal sounds. Worthy of the Crown emerged from this legendary scene. This group has been promoting its latest release, “Tidus.” With its mix of electrified synth, breakneck rhythms and spicy guitar runs, this album more than legitimizes Worthy of the Crown’s reputation for producing great modern prog metal sounds.
KNIVES has spent the past year introducing the Azalea City to its homegrown metal. With a few shows logged, the band has been relying on two singles to promote its music. “Eyesore” is the latest release. The band fills this metalcore anthem with an impressive abundance of roars and a dizzying whirlwind of riffs.
Under Giants completes this furious foursome. This up-and-coming local band joined Son of a Gun and KNIVES for their last invasion of Alabama Music Box. “Queen of Corruption” represents the band’s sound. This track delivers a brass-knuckled punch of frenzied metalcore.
