A new death metal band has emerged. Glacial Coffin, which contains members from Megawitch, DeadCentered and Vatic Decryption, promises to bring a performance with the intensity that comes with melodic death metal and then topping it off with “a frozen Nordic core”. New Orleans hard rockers Green Gasoline and Hammond doom metal outfit, Kavyk will be opening for them. It will be a great showcase of metal that Louisiana has grown to be known for. You can see all of this go down this Friday, March 22.
