Los Angeles, CA's MATRIARCHS have been making major waves in the local scene, so it’s no surprise that they’re busy with events lately. Make sure to catch them tomorrow at Loaded, located at 6377 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA. The show also features Society 1, Vengeance For The Fallen, and Animus Divine(currently on the Summer Slaughter tour). For more information on the show, visithttp://www.loadedhollywood.com/.
After cutting their teeth on the local hardcore scenes of Los Angeles, New York, France, and Northern California, founding guitarists Ben Levi and vocalist Richard Barthel formed MATRIARCHS on the idea that they could fuse together the visual aesthetic and presentation of more thought provoking heavy acts like Tool or Converge with the sonic ferocity and energy of hardcore.
Their debut EP does just that and more – with thought provoking lyrics, the precision and technicality usually found in metal and the energy and ferocity of their predecessors…and of course, breakdowns. Featuring ex-members of well-known bands like Hoods, Ruckus, and Avoid Serious Injury, MATRIARCHS brings a unique brand of punk influenced metal.
