.Kruelty + Ripped to Shreds at The X Bar

As self-described proprietors of “disgusting music from Tokyo,” Kruelty have perfected a righteous combination of heavy hardcore and death doom, possibly the most “skull t-shirt” combination of four words one could put together. The band is definitely heavy as hell, with sinister growling vocals over bluesy chord progressions and a relentless double bass kick. Joining them on the penultimate date of their US tour are San Jose/Taipei-based death metallers Ripped to Shreds, whose own brand of heavy old school death metal inspired by East Asian history has emerged as the South Bay heavy sound to get hip to.
