Kriadiaz Headlines a Hard-hitting Lineup at Sherlock’s by Tommy Shannon

Saturday, Jan. 30

Cleveland heavy metal quintet, Kriadiaz, is storming the stage at Sherlock’s on Saturday, Jan. 30, along with a handful of other hard-hitting local and regional acts.

Founded by former guitarist of Mushroomhead, Dave Felton, Kriadiaz is an undeniable powerhouse of all things heavy, incorporating techniques from both old and new styles of the genre to create a metal experience that any head-bangers can, well, bang their heads to. Their self-titled 2013 album is oozing with the stylistic influences of Black Sabbath, Lamb of God, and the most obvious influence, Pantera.

Also on the bill are Toro Blanco, and Erie’s own The Light In The Dark. Each band differs greatly from the next, Toro Blanco delivering a psychedelic blues/stoner rock, while The Light In The Dark plays an ambient and dynamic Deftones-esque alt-metal. Rest assured that the sonic atmosphere at Sherlock’s will be anything but stale on this night. – Tommy Shannon
