Monday, December 15th

Tuesday, December 16th

Pallbearer with Solstafir, Mortals at Riot Room 8 PM $12

If you’re a fan of heavy metal, chances are you’ve seen Pallbearer mentioned heavily in almost every single magazine/blog/website’s best of 2014 list. And for good reason – Pallbearer is a doom band with unmatched heaviness whose latest album, Foundations Of Burden, is one of the heaviest albums of the decade. Accompanied by amazing post-metal group Solstafir and Mortals, this will be a magical show.

Battlecross with Wretched, Sedlec Ossuary, Bleed The Victim at Aftershock 6:30 PM $13

Sebastian Bach with Villains Dance, Pullman’s Standard at The Scene 8 PM $25

Yes, that Sebastian Bach. Still riding high from his time in the popular 80s hair metal group Skid Row and his many stints on VH1-related TV shows, the surprisingly solid Bach brings his talents to the Scene Rock Bar for a fun night.

Medusa with Sigrah, Nmezee at Riot Room 10 PM $5

Orange Goblin with King Parrot, Bl’ast!, Troglodyte, Merlin at Riot Room 8 PM $15

A rare US appearance for Orange Goblin (let alone in KC) is enough to cement this as the show to see this month. The UK doom titans top an eclectic bill with Aussie grind madmen King Parrot, old-school hardcore dudes Bl’ast! and local guys Troglodyte and Merlin. Five different bands – five different genres. Things are going to get weird!
