Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Affiance CD Release/Fallen Captive/Sentients/Cholera AD/Aurora/Atlas/Abstraction

When: Fri., Oct. 3, 5:30 p.m. 2014

One of the best local bands on the circuit, Affiance made quite an impression with 2010’s No Secrets Revealed, an album that serves as a real call to arms. The intricate guitar lines racing through “Nostra Culpa” and “For Power” are more old-school than new-school metal, but Affiance shreds with relentless precision. The band’s latest offering, Blackout, commences with the blistering title track. The guitar solos in songs such as “Limitless” and “Darkest” show just how much the band has evolved. The over-the-top vocal performance on “In Justice” is simply stunning. These guys could hold their own against Slayer, Anthrax or any other veteran speed metal band. In singer Dennis Tvrdik, the group has a screecher who can hit the high notes. This guy could probably sing opera if he wanted to. 5:30 p.m., $10. Agora. (Jeff Niesel)
