Shadebeast consistently puts on impressive metal shows, and this one in particular caught my attention. Atlanta band Irist will play at Flicker before embarking on a two-month European tour in support of the self-produced and Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis) mixed Gloria EP. Rodrigo Carvalho (vocals), Pablo Davila (guitar), Adam Mitchell (guitar) and Bruno Segovia (bass) have a cinematic quality to their music, clean but not sterile. The riffs are heavy but dynamic with prog influence. The rhythms are rich with Latin flair, and it’s no mistake. Three of the band’s five members moved from South America to Atlanta before forming the band. So, if they can move across hemispheres to create the band, surely you can get on down to Flicker to go hear them before they travel overseas.
