8/18: Thrash & Burn Tour at Peabody's

This show features nine bands, presented by online musical equipment store Musician’s Friend. The rundown: Devildriver (former Coal Chamber frontman Dez Fafara’s ultra-heavy new thing; great live, OK on disc), Emmure (muscle-headed Connecticut hardcore with occasional dabs of crudely integrated melody), Despised Icon (technical deathcore from Canada, dissonant and noisy and rhythmically relentless), My Children My Bride (cranky metalcore; no more need be said, really), Veil of Maya (melodic, progressive, technical death metal with good drums, awful vocals), For the Fallen Dreams (screamo-ish hardcore you and your bros can pump your fists to), Oceano (demonic vocalist fronting a totally generic deathcore band), Periphery (fast, staccato, pissed off; destined to open package tours forever), Thy Will Be Done (trying to steal the tour’s heaviness crown from Devildriver, with moderate success). It all starts at 3 p.m. at Peabody’s (2045 E. 21st St., 216.776.9999). Tickets: $17 advance, $20 day of show. — Phil Freeman
