Rise From Your Grave: Altered Beast Set To Unleash New Music
Unless you’ve been sleeping for the past three years, chances are you’ve heard the name Altered Beast when talking about the local KC/Lawrence hardcore and metal scene – and that’s for a good reason. They’ve opened for heavyweights like Napalm Death, Madball and just about every other group in-between. Their blend of old-school crossover with tinges of sludge, powerviolence and metallic hardcore make them pretty irresistible to any fan of any heavy music.
Their newest release, a self-titled 7 inch on Blak Skull Records, showcases the group at maybe their heaviest output yet. Fast riffs punctuated with effective breakdowns should make the release feel right at home alongside heavy hitters like Power Trip and Cro-Mags. The first great local heavy music release of 2017!
Altered Beast are taking the stage Saturday night at the Replay Lounge in Lawrence to celebrate the release of their newest 7 inch record. Opening are the equally great bands in Young Bull and Canyons.
