Lansing became Michigan’s state capital way back in 1847. Fast forward 170 years, and the Mitten’s fifth largest city is vying to be the its metal capital. This is due to the all-out audio assault of the city’s most unholy sons, Recorruptor. The band’s new release Blood Moon is generating more buzz than as any weed dispensary in the state ­– filled with brutality, virtuosity and feral hunger. It’s an album that possesses the maturity of a death metal band that has already made it ­– and mounted headlining tours well beyond state lines.

On Saturday, December 16th, Recorruptor will once again join forces with Michigan Thrash Metal royalty Battlecross, this time for their fifth annual BATTLECHRISTMAS at the Token Lounge in Westland. Carnis Immortalis, FORCES, Finality, Withhold the Blood and Until Solace are also on the bill.

If you’re going to the show, bring an unwrapped NEW toy to benefit children of First Step Domestic Violence Shelter. And bring extra money to buy merchandise from all these great bands who are working their asses off to keep Michigan Metal alive. Grandma will love her new Recorruptor hoodie.
