On February 16, Albuquerque’s own Launchpad hosts Lord Dying, Torture Victim, and Echoes of Fallen. Doors for this 21+ show are scheduled to open at 7 p.m., with the first band taking the stage at 8 p.m. Entry is $7 but is subject to change at the door.
Hailing from Albuquerque, Torture Victim describe themselves as follows: “An in-your-face extreme-metal assault.” The band’s new full-length studio CD is titled Of Darkness and Power.
Hailing from Belen and Albuquerque, Echoes of Fallen play a combination of ripping death metal and punishing grindcore. The band’s self-titled demo was released in 2007.
Around since 1997, Albuquerque’s Launchpad has played host to bands of numerous genres, including punk, indie rock, and metal. The Launchpad is located on 618 Central Avenue Southwest, which is between 6th and 7th streets.
