Shadebeast Presents welcomes Jet Engine Dragons back to the stage after a long pandemic-induced hiatus. Anchored by Corey Flowers (also of Beast Mode), who holds a minor in composition and a doctorate in guitar performance, the progressive tech-metal group creates intricate and challenging music. Visiting from Cape Coral, FL, Dizygote is the father and son band of Ned and Ethan DuRant who combine their interests in classic punk rock and heavy metal to create a sludgy sonic hybrid that bridges generations. Closing out the night will be the second-ever live set by Kettle to Wake, a new local metal band composed of guitarist-vocalist Carter Ross, bassist Seth Barham and drummer Ross White. Arriving hot out of the hellgate with a four-track self-titled EP in late April, the band’s shreddy, melodic death metal sound melds elements of stoner, prog and doom metal.
