A little bit of rain didn’t stop SXSW attendees from once again packing the Dirty Dog Bar down on Sixth Street this Friday. While the Metal Sucks showcase was heavy on tech death bands, the Tone Deaf Touring showcase included down tempo acts The Skull and Weedeater. Before those acts took the stage, though, progressive instrumentalists Stinking Lizaveta opened the show. The Philadelphia, Ohio based band has fifteen years of touring American and European audiences. This longevity showed in the trio’s tightness. Their female drummer played hard sticking tightly to the bassist who played an upright bass. The guitarist adeptly traversed his fret board. They received a good response from the small crowd.

Trapped Within Burning Machinery - Moreno Valley, California's five-piece crushing doom/sludge outfit - is set to play this year's Day Of The Shred Fest on November 1st alongside Red Fang, Weedeater, Windhand, The Shrine, and a whole hell of a lot more.
The band was originally a one-man project started by Zak Esparza (lead guitar/vocalist) in 2007. After recording some demos, Zak recruited close friend Geoff Jones to play drums and Juan Rodriguez to fill in on bass.
The trio wrote and recorded the band’s first demo, "Evolutionary Transmitted Disease," and self-released it in the summer of 2009. In January 2011, the band entered the studio to record a first full-length album, "The Putrid Stench of Decaying Self," this time with new bassist Ernie Ballerz and second guitarist Robert Trujillo. The band released the full-length through Black Voodoo Records on October 5th, 2012.
In early 2014, the group released a limited split tape with LA's Pigeonwing. Trapped Within Burning Machinery has also recently added a third guitarist, James Inglett, to expand its sound. As of April of 2014, TWBM just finished second full-length, "The Filth Element," recorded with renowned producer/engineer John Haddad (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia), which will be released via Midnite Collective in the near future.
Day Of The Shred takes place at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California on Novemer 1st. Tickets are available here and the show will feature Red Fang, Weedeater, Windhand Elder, The Shrine, Bongripper, Radio Moscow, Ancestors, Glitter Wizard, Graves At Sea, Danava, Arctic, Hot Lunch, All Them Witches, Goya, (16), Greenbeard, and Trapped Within Burning Machinery.
