Aug 19, 2013 On Saturday Aug 24, BlackCat Burrito in downtown Boone will host Charlotte based alternative band The Feral. Also on the ticket will be The Seduction, a punk-metal group from Wilkesboro, NC. The show is scheduled to start at 10 p.m. and will cost $5. The event is 18 and up only, and all proceeds will benefit the touring bands first and foremost.
The Feral blends elements of post punk, ambient and classical heavy metal to create an alternative sound that lulls their audience into both a trance state and an intense and high energy frenzy. With influences like Radiohead and Neurosis, and with each band member having their own style and experience, the band produces a complex and intricate sound that is still cohesive and clear.
The Seduction, based out of Wilkesboro, Boone and Sparta, is best defined as punk and metal sludge with just the right amount of crazy. The band boils down heavy Rock&Roll to its bare bones and presents it with fury and vitriol. Formed from the fallout of several other local bands, the group has found a sound that is all their own. They play several shows a month, making a name for themselves and having a hell of a good time doing it.
