You should go see them

Hey guess what! Doomriders are back in town! And they’re playing Húrra tonight!

This seminal metal band tore our faces off and shook our guts to the core when they burned down Grand Rokk eight years ago (with the help of I Adapt). That show certainly left a mark on a lot of people in Iceland’s metal scene (much like the 2004 Iðnó appearance by Doomriders’ stalwart Nate Newton’s other band, the mighty Converge), so much that noted hater Bogi Bjarnason is even excited for the show. This is what he told us:

To wrap your weekend up on a high note, you couldn’t do better than go bang your head off to the tunes of Bostonian heavy weights, Doomriders, and the accompanying post-metal dirges of local favorites Kontinuum.

Now, that’s a endorsement right there. Bogi will be reviewing tonight’s show for us, so be on the lookout for a write up in the near future. In the meantime, make your way down to Húrra for a loud night of loud loudness and shouting.

Oh, and guess what! The first person to comment on this story gets a +1 to the show, so they can go for free and INVITE A FRIEND!

(miss u, Grand Rokk. Miss u, I Adapt).
