Boise has some great bands that you've probably heard of. It also has a lot more you probably haven't heard of. Sadly, unless you're a serious metal-o-sexual, there's a good chance Krystos is one of them you haven't heard of.
As you can see in the video below, the local power-metal band has fingers as fast as Olympic sprinters and riffs as savage as Mel Gibson on a bender. This isn't the best audio for a live performance video, but since it's shot up close, you can see some serious finger-capoeira on the fretboard.
Krystos will be rocking tonight at The Shredder at 430 10th St. with VX36 and LATIMER for the low, low metal price of $5. The show is supposed to start at 8 p.m., but probably won't really start until the audience is suitably slizzered.
