Heavy Metal concert Saturday

I t’s going to be loud at the Whitehall Athletic Club this weekend.

“Meltdown on the Mettawee,” a heavy metal concert featuring Metallica and Pantera cover bands will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2013.

The show features two Albany-based acts headlining what is billed as “a metal tribute show like no other.”

Creeping Death, a Metallica tribute band, and Stronger than All, a Pantera cover band will be the headline acts at the concert which begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors will open an hour earlier.

Both bands tour extensively, and each have recently sold out shows in Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, and Boston, according to the Whitehall Athletic Club’s director of music events Alex Hyatt.

“These bands are certainly something you don’t see or hear every day in this area,” Hyatt said. “To me, it is incredible that we’ve got not just one of these bands on the stage that night…but both! Thanks to some luck on our part, all tickets are just $17. It’s a ‘can’t miss’ kind of show…if you haven’t been to the WAC yet, you’re definitely going to have your mind blown.”

Regional favorites Second Switch will open the night with original music slated to be released on a brand-new album later this year.

“I’m excited to be playing this show,” said Second Switch lead vocalist PJ Ferguson. “It’s cool to feel the support from our hometown and we’re gonna have a great night.”

The show is 16 plus. Anyone under 16 will be admitted with guardian.

All tickets are general admission, and $22 day-of-show. There will be food and beverages available for purchase and the WAC lounge will be open to those 21+.
