Satan, Cauldron, Satan's Hallow, Beast Warrior 

When: Wed., Oct. 26, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: $20, $18 in advance
This Toronto metal trio started in 2006 by blasting out a classic speed-metal sound with a touch of tongue in cheek. It wasn’t up to Steel Panther levels of parody, but a song like “Chained Up in Chains” certainly sports some self-awareness and a little bit of camp, only without losing any punch. Cauldron’s fourth full-length, In Ruin (Earache), plays it straight and tuneful, aiming for an unpretentious, classic sound. Vocalist Jason Decay has an affable sort of convincingness that’s even more efficiently sold by the riffs and trills from guitarist Ian Chains that fill out the spaces in the band’s galloping momentum. There’s nothing radical here, but that’s not what you should be looking for with a band like this—what they deliver is high-energy retro satisfaction.
