DESCRIPTION

Formed in the icy wastelands of Northern Vermont, Rocketsled barreled through the first half of the 1990s like a furious Mack truck carrying a payload of nitroglycerin. One of Burlington's all-time heaviest acts, Rocketsled ?delivered a melodic punch and doom-laden groove that set them apart from the pack. Their 1995 album, '71 Nova, garnered national attention for its relentless riffs, precision percussion and tuneful yet acidic vocals. Subsequent demos found the band probing the heaviest quadrants of the metalverse and have been traded by die-hard fans ?since they were summoned in an unspeakable ritual involving Miller High Life and four-track cassette recorder. Despite the growing attention and accelerated musical evolution, Rocketsled called it a day before the decade was up, playing its first and, until now, only reunion show in 1998. Now, nearly two decades later, The Old Gods return for one more night of furiously seductive music in memory of of 242 Main, the legendary, now-defunct all ages club operated for decades by the City of Burlington. A final celebration or invocation of a new dawn? Some things are best left a mystery.
