Aah, Jan. 2: A nice day to recover from the debauchery of New Year's. Of course, if you want work out some of the angries you may be experiencing in the face of the looming workweek, head over to Chain Reaction for some artery-popping metal music. Headliners Bitter End hail from Texas, a place where everybody does everything bigger. And when it comes to this band's sound, they live up to the adage of the Lone Star state. Rocking a sound reminiscent of Slayer with a little more growl in the vocals, you're sure to leave with a big ringing sound in your ears.
