Holy Grove, Sons of Huns, Billions and Billions

[ANCIENT METAL] The decline of the Mayan people has puzzled the world ever since the first mustachioed conquistador landed in the Yucatán. The one thing Mayan civilization lacked, other than draft animals and pulleys, was metal. Their calendar foretold a spiraling shift toward a new world order, a metalocalypse that eventually overcame them, and will overcome us all. Rise and be sacrificed, ye petty blackguards, to the annihilating sounds of Sons of Huns, Holy Grove and Billions and Billions. Not only is the 21st the apocalypse, but the show’s at Club 21 and it’s 21-and-up. Quetzalcoatl might as well be setting up a neon sign outside. Each band obviously represents a period of Mayan culture. Billions and Billions tells the pre-classical origin story with their shamanistic metal and songs like “We Came From Dust.” The height of classical Mayan civilization and depravity, Holy Grove’s rock is so stoned and its vocals so velvety one almost overlooks the forecasted doom. The death and oppression of the Mayans under colonial and then capitalist rule dictate Sons of Huns’ bluesy, morbid sound.
