To celebrate the late arrival of summer and hot weather in Denver, we have some blisteringly ripping bands coming through town, sharing their music and keeping things brutal as Denver gears up for a season full of beating sun, dry heat and mountain treks. This week marks the perfect soundtrack to the start of your metal vacation, boasting such awesome acts as Diecide, black metalers 1349 and big bill names Otep and Ill Nino.
Otep @ The Marquis – Tuesday, June 2nd
Metal legends Otep are still at it after years as a band, and now they are signed to Victory Records, making for a strong and powerful alliance that will surely carry them across the country and even the world. Vocalist Otep Shamaya has been a trailblazer for the female presence in the metal scene and a staple example of a solid vocalist. They stopped in the Springs on Monday, and this Tuesday night they will grace us with their presence at the Marquis. Joining them on the bill are The ReAktion, Nuisance, ELETE and Blakk Mantra.
