The Concrete Rivals' sound combines the reverb-driven, gruff guitar work of 60's surf rock and the speed and guts of in-your-face heavy metal. This Montpelier, Vermont, trio has been touring on the strength of its debut album, "Eat Their Weight in Snakes." Justin Crowther of Seven Days, an independent Vermont publication, described the record as "Dick Dale and Slayer collaborating on a score for B-horror surf movie." The band's enthusiastic and exacting thrash n' surf musical mentality is an impressive mix of early metal, standard surf, and prog-rock, as well as a criminally crooked sense of country. Tombstone Hands and Roarshark fill out the bill.
