Madison band Pyroklast had its initial run from 2007 to 2013, playing a strain of hardcore charged up to near-epic proportions with metallic filth and grandiose, dystopic rage. Pyroklast's members have played in a lot of other very good hardcore and metal bands, including Panther, Dos Malés, and No Hoax, but Pyroklast had a distinctively bleak and crusty vision. Highlights on the band's 2012 album, The Madness Confounds, ranged from the rapid-fire hammer-on riffs of "Extermination Of Permanence" to the thrashing fury of "Alcohol May Have Been A Factor." The band plays a one-off reunion show here to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Joining Pyroklast here will be the Madison synth-punk outfit Cave Curse and a new Madison hardcore band, Warbastard.  —Scott Gordon
