Carcass, Crowbar, and More at the New Daisy 

The New Daisy has already had some of the biggest names in metal come through their doors this year, but Friday's show that features grindcore legends Carcass along with Night Demon, Crowbar, and Ghoul might be the biggest metal bill of 2016. Formed in 1985, Carcass have been at the top of the grindcore food chain for most of their existence, mostly due to the unprecedented success they experienced for the album Heartwork, the record that essentially landed the band a deal with Columbia Records. Carcass broke up in 1995 but re-formed in 2007, and as they are considered by many to be the fathers of grindcore, the reunion was highly anticipated by new and old fans alike.

While all the supporting acts on this full U.S. tour are capable of filling the headlining slot on their own, Night Demon are certainly the newest band on the bill, having formed in 2011. With their massive fan base, they certainly belong on this all-star bill. New Orleans sludge masters Crowbar are no strangers to Memphis or the New Daisy, and their loyal fan base should make up most of the crowd at Friday's show.

Rounding out this insane lineup is Ghoul, the punk/metal band that features members of Phobia, Exhumed, and Wolves in the Throne Room. Ghoul come from the same school of thought as GWAR, meaning they adopt stage names (Cremator, Fermentor, Digestor, and Dissector, to be exact) and often use props during their performance. This one should get nasty.
