When: Mon., June 27, 9 p.m. 2016
Dead Set, the 2015 album from King Parrot, is a slightly different “dead set” from the one Vermont audiences may be used to. Where the local Dead Set specialize in recreating the feel-good grooves of the Grateful Dead, the Aussie thrash metal heroes’ record is a brutal onslaught of shredding guitars, pulverizing drums, sludgy bass and eviscerating vocal howls. And, as evidenced by song titles such as “Anthem of the Advanced Sinner” and “Home Is Where the Gutter Is,” the album is as darkly funny as it is aggressive. Repeat after me: Catch King Parrot at Nectar’s in Burlington this Monday, June 27, with Child Bite as part of the Metal Monday series.
Price: $10. 18+
