Two of the finest modern metal acts — Meshuggah from Sweden and Savannah, Georgia's Baroness — are sure to lay waste to the Mainroom with their experimental, incendiary sounds. Meshuggah have embarked on what they are calling "The Ophidian Trek" in support of their raucous new record, KOLOSS, a highly anticipated album that their hardcore fans waited four years to hear. Baroness also have a new record, Yellow & Green, which is set to be released on July 17, but plenty of new songs should find their way into their stormy, sludgy set. The two bands both bring a heavy, turbulent edge to their music, and this pairing is like a dream — or nightmare — come true for current metal fans. With Decapitated. All ages.
