LOCAL METAL SHOWCASE: Temptation's Wings, Dissent, Horseflesh

Battles, berzerkers, bizarre beasts, and bashing skulls. The trials and tribulations of ancient times. Pillaging and reciting grand tales of Bloodshed and Conquest. Trampling the weak and hurdling the dead, we aim to make each song a crushing tale of brutality from start to finish. Thick, roaring guitar tone, a massive, thundering bass tone, and drums that sound as if they were played with a warhammer. These are our sonic weapons of choice to bring our style of thrashy doom to life. We are a no frills, no gimmicks metal band from the shadows of the wicked old mountains of North Carolina. With influences ranging from bluegrass to classical, Amon Amarth to ZZ Top, and everything in between, we're out to bring our own brand of "brootality" to anyone that would lend an open ear. Check out our current EP, "WarMallet: an EP of Brutality", featuring March of the Barbarian Horde, WarMallet, and Conqueror of Giants. It is 21 minutes of ancient, unrestrained fury! And also check out our youtube channel under temptationswingsband. Horseflesh is a 3 price band hailing from Asheville, NC.Face-melting amps. Skull-crushing riffs. Fun-ass stoner metal, plain and simple. Formed in late 2004 the 4 members started an original project intent on filling a void in the sleepy local metal scene. Many local parties and shows followed. After a couple sloppy demo attempts the 12 song album "Reaching for the Surface" was recorded at Giraffe studios in early 2007. Many local and regional shows followed.

In late 2012 after several member changes and side project distractions the current lineup formed as a power trio with: Jason Jones Guitar and Vocals, Yona Owens Drums and Vocals, Rick Hulbert Bass.

Moving forward with constant new material and a solidified sound Dissent is here to crush your ears with brutal sounds and an explosive crowd pleasing live show.
