While many lineups load up on the noise and heft, very few have ever packed as much wild variety and sheer freakishness as the Savage Imperial Death March Tour. This road show for the ages brings the hat trick of England’s groundbreaking grindcore fountainhead Napalm Death, Pacific Northwest sludge experimentalists the Melvins and Japanese noise-rock iconoclasts Melt Banana. The bands all have deep cred as acts of historical and creative import, but each comes from a very different and distinct corner of the music galaxy. The thing they share, however, is forward thinking. And it’s what has distinguished them as eternal cognoscenti darlings across decades of interesting work. Together, they constitute a truly legendary cross-section of the breadth and originality of the extreme underground.
