Longstanding Detroit bruisers Walls of Jericho is one of the earliest progenitors of a distinctly American style of metalcore, which takes two-step ready rhythms and pumps them full of galloping riffs and pinch harmonics. The band, fronted by Candace Kucsulain, has been doing the damn thing since 1998, and its influence on a rising generation of young metalcore acts, like Code Orange and Sanction, is undeniable. Its debut LP, "The Bound Feed the Gagged," is one of the subgenre's founding texts and hasn't lost an ounce of its feral energy in the 20 years since its release.
Walls of Jericho will perform with First Blood, Sanction, Left Behind, The Weight We Carry, and Misgiver on Tuesday, June 12, at Photo City Improv, 543 Atlantic Avenue. $15. 5:30 p.m. tecshows.com; facebook.com/wallsofjericho.
