Elenora Fagan, Battle Beast, Such Mad Hope, Strongholdcrvsader, Sham Lee

When: Fri., April 6 2012

BATTLE BEASTS, STRONGHOLDCRVSADER Battle Beasts is one appropriately-named act. The Charlotte duo plays flat-out, reckless drum-and-bass noise-rock (yeah, a lot like Lightning Bolt). Yet Battle Beasts’ mix of hardcore pummel with wild-eyed danceability results in a more ruthless creature than the Bolt’s unicorns-n-rainbows bliss-punk: the desperate grit and grime of the genre’s basement origins shine through. Their unlikely cousin Strongholdcrvsader plays minimalist drone-sludge. And though Strongholdcrvsader moves at a slower pace, it’s still sped up compared to obvious influences like pre-2005 Earth.
