I could go on and on about how Burque is a metal town; you’ve heard it here before and you’ll hear it again. But this week, instead of listening to me rant while “Tornado of Souls” or “Caught in a Mosh” plays in the background, you can get a feel for the facts for yourself by taking a trip down to Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) for the concert being given by thrash legends Testament, Sepultura and Prong on Thursday, April 6. The Convalescence will provide support for the local iteration of a tour whose media depiction is festooned with poisonous snakes, blood red tongues and suffering, blindfolded humans hellbent on serving their Satanic master. Or something like that. Anywho, Testament has been around for, like, almost 35 years. Early work like 1990’s Souls of Black still resonates resolutely; the new stuff—which includes the most excellent return of guitarist Alex Skolnick—like last year’s critically aclaimed Brotherhood of the Snake are also thrashy and masterful. Sepultura on the other hand has had a more experimental metal history, but a less than stable line-up that has still seen notable nastiness emerge. And what about Prong, you ask? Well, that band, mostly the project of guitarist Tommy Victor, is worth hearing live too; especially if they perform anything from Force Fed or Power of the Damager. And guess what? Your opportunity to sell your soul for rocanrol will only cost between $25-118, a small price to pay for the immortality bestowed by perpetual headbanging and giving the sign of the horns to your loved ones and co-workers over the course of the following week. The gates of Hell open at 6pm for those who are at least 13 years old and sincerely appreciate palm-muted guitars.
