If metal pulses through your veins, drummer Brent Terry of Better Left Unsaid says their Wednesday night show at Club LA will leave a lasting impression.
"Everybody that sees us live is blown away by our show," Terry said of the Modesto, Calif.-based metal quintet. "We put everything we have into our music."
With 10 U.S. tours under their belts, Terry and his band mates have toured with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Devildriver, Mushroomhead and Hatebreed. Now they are bringing their brutal brand of metal to Club LA tonight, as they open up for (HED) p.e.
Touted as a complex melodic metal machine, Better Left Unsaid, which dates back to 2003, is comprised of Terry on drums, vocalist Adam Raffety, guitarists Greg Fender and Rob Fernandez, and bassist Ryan Denys.
The band is touring in support of their latest self-titled album, which features tracks such as "The Butcher," "Threat of Truth," and "My Wounds."
As for the new album, Terry said it comes from a much different place compared to their previous efforts.
"It's dark and organic," he said. "This album was more drawn from each one of us... we wrote this album from a real dark place."
And while music is a passion for Terry and the rest of the band, it's a passion that doesn't come without sacrifice, as they spend countless hours away from friends and family while on the road.
Despite the sacrifices, Terry said he wouldn't have it any other way.
"We signed up for this gig and we take it 150 percent," he said. "There is nothing like metal and the metal crowds. The respect and the feedback you get from the crowd is different than at other shows."
Better Left Unsaid joins Psycho Killaz as the opening acts for the California-based (HED) p.e., which is most commonly known for its hit "Hey Bartender."
Tickets for the 18-and-older show are still available and can be purchased at www.rockdestin.com or by calling 1-866-777-8932.
"You're going to get the best metal show you've probably seen from a band you have never heard of," he said. "If you have heard of us, if you think what we sound like on the album is what we sound like live, we are ten times better live."
