The Chicago Metal Factory presents: Chicago’s 23rd annual Holiday Of Horror
Admission includes access to TWO ROOMS of Metal:
17+ in Rock Club with MACABRE, Maggot Twat (Reunion Show), Without Waves, and Texas Toast Chainsaw Massacre
21+ in Music Joint with Inner Decay, Beyond Deth, and HanzxGruber
AND – FREE MIDNIGHT AFTER PARTY in the Joint (21+)
with Slayer tribute band REIGN IN BLOOD
Stages will alternate so those 21+ can see all the bands
Formed in 1985, Macabre’s lineup has remained the same since day one:
vocalist/guitarist Corporate Death (Lance Lencioni),
bassist/vocalist Nefarious (Charles Lescewicz),
and drummer Dennis the Menace (Dennis Ritchie).
That’s a rarity for any band, let alone a band in a genre where peers with similar longevity may not feature even one original member.
The trio is a vanguard of the style they’ve come to describe as “murder metal,” a ferocious mix of death metal, punk rock, grind, jazz fusion, thrash and folk melodies among other sounds with lyrics examining real-life stories of serial killers, mass murderers and more.
MAGGOT TWAT ((Reunion Show))
Two idiots and a puppet drummer named dickpancakes. This is the most awesomely stupid metal band in the universe. Formed in 1998 by brothers Pete and Dan Manzella, (Piz ‘n’ Spam Manwhat). Maggot Twat returns to make you piss yourself.
Without Waves range from extreme metal to jazz fusion to atmospheric rock, showcasing blistering riffs and unorthodox time signatures paired alongside dreamy melodies and poetic chord structures.
TEXAS TOAST CHAINSAW MASSACRE
Crossover thrash band from the underground of Chicago, Ten years strong this 5 piece combines their love of pop culture, thrash metal and putting people through tables
