Death By Stereo

8 p.m. Sunday, February 27. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

It must get slightly frustrating being Efrem Schulz. The singer has been fronting Orange County metalcore unit Death by Stereo since 1996, and its revolving-door lineup is legendary: Of the band's current configuration, only guitarist Dan Palmer has been with the group for more than a year or two. (He's a ten-year vet.) And though constantly changing the locks on the practice space to keep ex-members out could get tiresome, Schulz instead channels his rage through his caterwauling vocals — operatic one minute, drill-instructor barking the next. The band's most recent album, 2009's Death Is My Only Friend, was released by System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian's Serjical Strike label, but the odd pairing did nothing to temper the band's aggression — just take one listen to "Who Should Die? You Should Die" or "D.B.S.F.U." for proof.
