Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage at Stage AE (CPs Mon., 11/25/13)

1) Lamb of God makes an appearance at Stage AE tonight. If you’re thinking it sounds like a good Christian rock band, you’re wrong.

Album titles include New American Gospel, Burn the Priest, and Walk With Me in Hell. Co-headlining the show is Killswitch Engage, a metalcore band formed by members of Overcast and Aftershock. Opening are Testament and Huntress. Doors open at 6 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore.
