Hubris Local Massacre
Buffalo extreme metal has experienced a revival in the underground recently; bands like Hubris, Pneumonia Hole, Atrichous, Hellcannon, and Pig Rectum have all formed in just the last couple years, and mostly out of a frustration at the lack of extreme metal acts outside of the hardcore spheres. Bands like Hubris have had many opportunities to show off with national acts in front of their crowds, but at the expense of shorter sets. Now these bands will have a chance to give it all they’ve got at Broadway Joes for the Hubris Local Massacre on Friday (Sept 16). The spotlight is on these six bands, ranging in genre from thrash to black metal, who will have a chance to play extended sets to their own followers. With full length LPs on the way Hubris and Pig Rectum look to prove themselves to their hardcore crowds while Hellcannon will play in support of their recently released album Infected with Violence. Pneumonia Hole, one of the two openers, features Eareckson Murray from Cain (and Amish Noise), whose face has been a symbol of the Buffalo metal underground for years now, and Atrichous features Nayla Krystal, a lady guitar wizard, formerly of Chicken Fist. Metal fans don’t miss this local massacre tomorrow night at BJs. —a.v.
