Secrets She Kept, Dreaded, Grooms of the Stool 

When: Thu., Dec. 3, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $7
Secrets She Kept may come from Florida, but the trio delights more in the scorched sounds of black metal than the snaps, strikes and bellows of the death metal its native state helped make famous. That’s not to say that the band ignores its backyard for complete Scandinavian oblivion; they squeeze in bits of death metal with the breakdowns and even furtively nod toward its technical ends with riffs wedged between verse and chorus. Last year’s La Fin Absolue du Monde even drifted into the atmospheric. But heavy, fast and mean—that’s Secrets She Kept’s preferred mode. Greensboro’s Dreaded keeps it much more basic and belligerent, while Raleigh’s Grooms of the Stool fashions a broad, aggressive chimera from all those aforementioned niches, even dropping a hint of doom into the best of their deeply foreboding songs. —Grayson Haver Currin
