This week Savage Wizdom and Future Scars are headlining Tuesdays at the Pond at 7 p.m. today.
For those that love metal, Savage Wizdom delivers! Inspired by bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Manowar, Savage Wizdom brings their unique and heavy sound to the masses. Founded in 2004, surviving many lineup changes they have become a pillar of the metal scene in Santa Fe, NM.
First releasing No Time For Mercy in 2007 and their latest highly reviewed epic, A New Beginning in 2014, they have grown into a powerhouse of a band. Now they are the strongest they have ever been with soaring vocals, big guitar riffs and solos, bombastic drums and a riveting stage presence; they are a band you don’t want to miss. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfD6gHXVUAk
Founded in 2015 by members of Santa Fe’s As In We, Future Scars boasts a lineup of dedicated musicians seasoned with nearly a decade of cooperative experience. Emotionally rooted in the contemplative, melodic atmosphere of post-rock, Future Scars expands beyond a singular genre’s expectations, often times overflowing into the domain of sheer intensity and fervor. The group couples these drastically varied, yet complementary components with the recurrent flurries of heart-wrenching vocals, creating an aura of earnest exhilaration and beauty. Laced with technicality and the prowess of control, Future Scars construct a sound balanced in adversity, soothing and cathartic yet all the while anxious with anticipation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZHPWjYuwRY
