Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada, Dark Tranquility

Friday, February 26, at the Palladium Ballroom

Killswitch Engage released the first disappointing album of its career last year, and though it was just announced that frontman Howard Jones has been removed from the rest of this tour, chances are still pretty good that the band won't disappoint live. Face it: This is an act that really throws out the rulebook on how to do a "mettttttttt-alllllllll" show.

Expect All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte to do a decent job filling in for Jones, and be prepared to hear guitarist/court jester Adam Dutkiewicz offering up plenty of great one-liners that mock metal machismo. He might even wear something like a cape and short shorts. But aside from that, the band has a great catalog filled with meaty riffs, complex drumming and anthemic, harmonious choruses. Yes, thankfully, there are still bands out there that can pull this off without sounding like emo mush.

The Devil Wears Prada, a six-piece from Dayton, Ohio, opens with its brand of modern metallic hardcore. Longtime Swedish metallers Dark Tranquility open as well.
