I have two bands to tell you about. The first is Valiska and they hail from the Omaha and Council Bluffs area. Valiska will be opening the Act Of Defiance show along with a few more locals on Sunday, March 18th, 2018, at Dr. Jack’s Drinkery in Omaha, Nebraska. I’ve witnessed the sheer brutality of Valiska live and their ultra face ripping guitars, mega crushing drum sound, powerful bass, and brutality heavy vocals, will destroy you live. No BS, it’s that badass. It’s, however, unfortunate that I cannot find any of their recordings anywhere online… you’ll just have to take my word for it.
The main event of this gig is Act Of Defiance and they’re touring to support the release of their latest album “Old Scars, New Wounds”. The band is currently signed to Metal Blade Records and happens to feature former Megadeth members Chris Broderick on guitar and Shawn Drover on drums. Matt Bachand from Shadows Fall on bass guitar and to finish the supergroup off is Henry Derek on vocals. You’ll remember him from one of Joey Jordison’s projects titled Scar The Martyr. With all this amazing talent their new record will surely be crushing!!! This new record kinda reminds me of In Flames. I’ll let you decide. Have a little taste of the new offerings, here is a video…
I know you like what you just heard, so head over to the official Facebook event page and save the date. Once again this event contains a few bands. Show up on time and also check out Shattered Sun, Silence Is Madness, and Fallen Reign Band as well. $10 advanced tickets for 5 bands, that’s a great deal. Doors open at 7 pm and the event is 18 and over.
I’ll leave you with Act Of Defiance’s new album, you’re welcome.
