Concert Review: Trail of Dead, Secret Machines

Blistering punk. Pile-driving thrash metal. Air-guitar-worthy arena rock. Dual-vocal post-hardcore. Epic prog. Hair whipping, faces contorting, sweat arcing through the stage lights ten feet off the ground. Trying to identify the sound of Austin’s And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead is like looking for the proverbial needle after you and the haystack and your mom and your favorite cow, Bessy, have all been swallowed by the dragon.

One thing’s clear: it’s fucking intense.
