Plate XII Records Presents: SINISTER SOLSTICE
[[$7 AT THE DOOR. NO PRESALES.]]
A night of sonic darkness, specially curated for the longest night of the year.......
Come celebrate the death and rebirth of the sun with some of the southeast's finest acts of musical malice!
Pyre combine elements of thrash, punk, and classic metal into a rollicking good ol' time. Their songs leap and crackle with energy, and their riffs and vocal melodies stay in your head long after listening.
Their newest release, the mini-masterpiece of southern metal..."SWAMP WITCH" is available for you to listen to right here:
And here's Pyre ripping up The Atlantic back in January!
Bound for the Ground
Bound for the Ground is an occult sonic collective. A southern tent revival of nefarious means and purposes. Moon soaked blues meets dirt covered death worship.
Their most recent release, "Professional As Hell" is available for you to listen to here:
Here's some video evidence of a Bound for the Ground performance in Sacramento...
Vitreous is avant garde black metal. Their roots as a symphonic black metal band have flourished into a new...stranger entity. Elements of jazz, prog, and psychedelia combine with grim black metal to create a wholly unique darkness.
Their symphonic black metal material can be heard here:
VItreous will be debuting their BRAND NEW material at Sinister Solstice!
Rot In Coffins
Rot In Coffins is grindy, blackened, and HEAVY AS HELL. This is metal that rips and shreds like a razor edged chainsaw. With monster riffs, searing leads, and vicious vocals that manage to be accessible and memorable yet outright savage and brief.
Hear their track "UNMAKER" here:
Hear and see them destroy The Atlantic here:
Thunderclap combine elements of doom and sludge with a classic rock sensibility to create their very own brand of southern heavy. Tectonic sized bass and drums meet psych-tinged, blues soaked guitar that screams and roars. Vocals howl into smoke filled aether. CRUSHING is the word.
Hear Thunderclap here:
Hear and see Thunderclap level Loosey's a few years back...
Bit Brigade performs rock covers of full NES game soundtracks as their gamer speedruns the game live on stage.
On November 15th at the Atlantic in Gainesville, FL, they will be performing The Legend of Zelda.
w/ Velocirapture & The Mermers
Bit Brigade (11:10)
The Mermers (9:30)
"When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah’s NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011

ABOUT: DETROIT HOUSE GUESTS
The Detroit House Guests project concept was conceived in the early 2000s and became a reality in 2014 after receiving a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant. The project was based on the "visual" artist residency model but for musicians. Each musician would come for up to a three week period with the parameter that we live, work and collaborate together. The results - a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album. ADULT. is the Detroit duo Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller. They played their first live show together in Germany in 1997 under the name Artificial Material. In early '98 they released their first 12" under the moniker Plasma Co. Later that year, they released their first 12" under the name ADULT. Currently, they have released six albums and 19 EPs or singles on Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey, Clone Records as well as on their own label Ersatz Audio, (which currently has over 40 releases since it was founded in '95) They have remixed over 20 acts as well, including Tuxedomoon, John Foxx, Death in Vegas and Pet Shop Boys (for Moog Music).
Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio. They have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan) and Centre d'art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at places such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City) and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
