Carrion Decay

$5. 314-771-1096.

Carrion Decay feels tightly wound within punk and hardcore. The guitars hold a keen sense for dingy tone, while shredding shines light on the band's rock & roll leanings. Carrion Decay deals with the mundane middle class, dead-end jobs and being ushered to the sidelines. The style sounds reactionary, with quick tempos amid grimy sounds and guttural yells coming from an upset stomach. A Google search nets you little for Carrion Decay, which uses its Facebook and Bandcamp pages as little more than sideshows, showing disdain for self-promotion. Colonia is also on the bill — it merges speed with melody in a desperate howl of modern screamo. Don't confuse this with mall-rock counterparts.

St. Louis Represents: Anodes continues to usher in post-hardcore and screamo groups through tireless booking and promotion, and the Ultraviolents return from a two-year hiatus as a trio with their quasi-punk-meets-noise rock.
