Where: Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

Tickets: $25 advance, $30 at the door


Few times seem as appropriate to host a death metal gig like the weekend following Halloween — and a mere three days after the haunting and candy-focused day, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino welcomes five-member group The Black Dahlia Murder to South Shore on Friday, Nov. 3.

“Having released their most accomplished, aggressive and emotionally diverse music to date in the form of 2015’s ‘Abysmal,’ the Michigan quintet have once more pushed themselves to new heights, and the 34 minutes of searing melodic death metal that comprises ‘Nightbringers’ is riveting listening,” states the band’s online biography.

“When we started writing I honestly didn’t know we had this album in us, and I feel really proud of it. It’s a great moment for us,” continues vocalist Trevor Strnad.

“Nightbringers” is noted for its “circusy, evil and playful air,” according to the band’s bio. But the album also includes mournful songs and cutthroat aggression, too.

Apart from The Black Dahlia Murder, six other bands — including Tahoe’s own Purification By Fire — will perform at the Friday evening show.

Doors open at 4 p.m. for the 5 p.m. gig, which is held at Vinyl inside Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Guests must be at least 21 years of age in order to attend.

Tickets, available through, cost $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the show.
