8/26/2014 7:51:00 PM Hard rockin' weekend at Main Stage in Cottonwood
Origin (from left: Jason Keyser, Paul Ryan, Mike Flores, and John Longstreth) performs at Main Stage on Monday, Sept. 1.
On Monday, Sept. 1, Main Stage in Cottonwood once again becomes the hub for a major national heavy metal tour stop as the "All Things Dead North American Tour" stops in Cottonwood.
One of the most intense and technical forces of the contemporary death metal world, Origin have returned to stake their claim as the leaders of metal's new wave of extremity with their fifth studio effort entitled "Entity." As expected, the death grind trio of Flores, Ryan, and Longstreth continue to churn out frantic hell paced grids of metal torment, but now further compliment the arrangements with a new found propensity for churning grooves and the hook-laden approach that first reared its ugly but accessible head on the band's 2007 offering, Antithesis.
The band once again returned to Chapman Recording Studios, in Lenexa Kansas to work with long time engineer and friend, Robert Rebeck. As stated multiple times in the past, Origin proves once again that they stand head and shoulders above their peers. They will be joined by Australian metal band King Parrot. The show is $15 and begins at 8pm. For tickets go to www.moshpitarmy.com.
The weekend begins with another show for metal fans as Arizona Heavy Metal presents "The Labor Day Kickoff Party on Friday, Aug. 29. The show will feature 2014 Project Independent winner Discordant along with Flagstaff's own Howitzer as well as Pulsic and Sacred Asylum. The show is free and begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug.30, sees local hard rock favorites Doubleblind return to Main Stage. The show is free and begins at 9 p.m.
Main Stage is located at 1 S. Main St. in Cottonwood. All events are free to the public unless otherwise indicated. Main Stage is open 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays during the summer. For more information please call (928) 202-3460 or visit www.mainstagetheater.com.
