Death by Stereo

In between tours with ascendant nautical metallers Mastodon and goth-chic pop-punkers Alkaline Trio, Death by Stereo headlines Dallas the day before the release of Death for Life, the Orange County metalcore outfit's new album. Avenged Sevenfold fans anxiously awaiting that band's terrific major-label debut would do well to bide their time in the company of the DBS dudes. Not only does Avenged front man M. Shadows guest on Death for Life, but also, like their fellow O.C. denizens, Death by Stereo has managed to complicate its thoughtful riff-and-rant without diluting the music's brute force.
