Kansas City has its fair share of bands with hilarious metal names - Hammerlord, Koktopus - but none approach the epic ring of At the Left Hand of God. The thrash crew's 2012 album, Bayonets and Tourniquets
, is about as bruising as its title suggests. They're joined on this Friday-night bill by fellow brutalists Trogdolyte, Moire and Sequoia.
Friday, January 4, at the Riot Room, 9 p.m., $5-$8.
