Excruciating Terror flew the death metal and grindcore flags high in the mid-‘90s Los Angeles metal scene. Their two albums — Expression of Pain and Divided We Fall — were two of the most relentlessly brutal albums to come out of L.A. during that time. Live shows since their 2013 reunion have seen the old faithful fans join forces with new blood to create ultra-violent mosh pits. If you are still in desperate need of sweating out your New Year’s hangover, this show should do the trick.
