Ode to the Metalheads

For too long have the mainstream gods of music bestowed their blessings upon the highly polished heads of the Justin Beibers and Lady Gagas of the world. We remember when metal had its own days: when you could hear Megadeth and Slayer on the radio and when it was trendy to stomp on punks. Well, Propaganda has booked four bands that could bring the metalheads back. Kill Now?!, a Lake Worth power trio, will represent the hard-rock spectrum of metal. The West Palm Beach quartet Fall of Olympus will bring a pure form of power thrash, and Mean Disease will be playing guttural hardcore. Bladesong, a Delray septet, will play the rare and elusive symphonic metal. The show starts at 9 p.m. at Propaganda (6 S. J St., Lake Worth). Tickets cost $5.
