Definitely falling onto the nu-metal end of the hard rock spectrum, Austin’s Motograter do the genre better than most. While it’s definitely not the coolest style of hard rock right now, after becoming overdone through the late ’90s and early aughts, Motograter manage to add some interesting elements and dynamics to the genre, throwing in unexpected transitions, vocal harmonies and double-bass to keep shit changing up through their songs.
Also on the bill are nu-metal counterparts Terror Universal. Rumored to feature current and former members of Machine Head, Soulfully, Upon a Burning Body and ILL Nino, Terror Universal are a masked quartet that make music that appeals to fans of Slipknot and Pantera.
