Foreshadow w/ A Mile at Sea 

When: Thu., Sept. 26 2013

death metal

When I first queued up Foreshadow’s “Meaning of Life,” a punishing death metal jackhammer of a song, I remember being vaguely concerned about the massive decibel level and how it might adversely affect my hearing. As I moved onto the equally brutal “War Without End,” I began to have a hard time forming thoughts, and my vision got blurry. Not long after that, I started running around Charleston City Paper’s office doing unspeakable things to my co-workers as Foreshadow’s music blared in my ears. I vaguely remember slamming chairs into walls, throwing a flaming sofa out of a window, and peeing on my boss’s desk. When I regained consciousness, I was naked, munching on chips in an overturned ambulance. For some of you, that’s a worthy enough endorsement of Foreshadow, but for others, you need a little more. These Tampa, Fla.-based metal heads have been around since 2008, and they’re currently touring in support of their most recent effort, The Stranger End of Death. They specialize in metal of the face-melting variety, and their lyrics seem to imply a dislike of the establishment — natch. Their music switches from a pounding cacophony to lighter, harmonic guitar riffs, and the changeovers indicate a level of technical proficiency that even a non-metal lover should be able to appreciate. —Stephen Pappas FRIDAY
