Tyrants of Chaos celebrate a very metal Christmas

E-mail Print PDF

Saturday night was the night to catch bands I haven’t seen for a while, and apparently was everybody’s night to hit the town.
 The Slice hosted a sold out “Very metal Christmas,” Dec. 16.

I missed Bring your own Bodies and Caste of Shadows, but caught local metal band Tyrants of Chaos, who played a set of mostly original, longer, epic length songs.

They were powered by Phil Sirias’s air raid siren vocals and chugging rhythm guitar from new guitarist Josh Nicol and screeching solos of Curtiss Vaselenak, which  were highlighted by smoke and a brace of flashing stage lights.

 They began with  “Habitat of Insanity, and followed it up with “Ancient Cord of Coexistence.” “Trenchfoot,” featured some impressive bass playing by Paul Denton.
