It takes a lot to stand out in the world of hardcore and metal, what with there being like thousands of bands in the genres and numerous subgenres. But Chico California’s Armed for Apocalypse, made up from ex-members of Number One Gun (Tooth and Nail Records), manage to do just this with their eclectic sound. Combining that classic California beat-down hardcore sound similar to bands like Throwdown, Armed for Apocalypse manage to mix in elements of doomy Southern sludge reminiscent of the likes of Eyehategod. It’s actually an awesome mix and if you need something fresh for your metal ingestion, you won’t want to miss this show.
