Dischordia plays Nightrocker Live on Monday, June 11 as the kickoff to a six-shows-in-seven-nights trek dubbed "The Waystation Tour." Heck, they're even giving San Antonians the chance to see them live before their own hometown. How hardcore is that? Complete dates are:
- June 11 - San Antonio, TX - Nightrocker Live
- June 13 - Lubbock, TX - Jake's Backroom
- June 14 - Albuquerque, NM - The Launchpad
- June 15 - Amarillo, TX - Vientiane Nights
- June 16 - Oklahoma City, OK - The Conservatory
- June 17 - Wewoka, OK - Metal Malice Festival
The Spurs and Thunder play Game 5 tonight at the AT&T Center in a series that's deadlocked at 2-2. By next Monday's concert, the series will be over, and one of them will be in the NBA Finals. Meaning, Dischordia will likely be absorbing its share of trash-talking from the Silver and Black faithful or unleashing their own trash talking in the form of death-metal fury.
Vocalist/bassist Josh Turner, guitarist/vocalist Keeno and drummer Josh Fallin released their debut four-song EP Creator, Destroyer this past October.
"The finished product is heavy, technical, brutal, and epic," Turner says in a release. Adds Keeno: "We are more than excited to embark on our first multi-state tour. We look forward to playing with some great bands in all the local scenes and meeting everyone who supports metal in those cities."
They also have a mostly instrumental track called "There Are No Words" that can be downloaded for free, along with the EP's title track here. Fans of Meshuggah, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Darkest Hour, The Human Abstract and Born of Osiris will take a liking to Dischordia.
Though it can be argued that all death metal sounds the same -- which is to say, vocally unintelligible -- Dischordia's trio boasts pounding and destructive musicianship that will make Nightrocker Live's weekly "Metal Mondays" more than live up to its moniker.
Another reason to check out Dischordia will be the curiosity factor. With a four-song EP and one instrumental not on the EP, it will be interesting to see what other songs this triumvirate will play/cover.
Who knows? Perhaps Wings of Abaddon and Dischordia will put their basketball differences aside and come together for a friendly jam. Full of "death" and destruction, of course.
