Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #24: Inter Arma

Hard as it may be to believe, it's once again time for Hopscotch. One of my favorite festival happenings, Hopscotch is a mere hop, skip, and a jump or two from the DC metro in lovely Raleigh, North Carolina. For the past few years they've been reeling in some seriously impressive lineups, and this year looks to be no different. Thanks to scheduling conflicts, I won't be heading down for this year's sonic extravaganza, but (not at all surprisingly) I've got recommendations on who to check out if you're heading to the fest.

As long as they're together, Inter Arma will be one of my favorite Richmond bands. It's not because I'm a huge fan of metal, as we know, but because, even as a casual observer, these dudes are just too fucking good at what they do. Theirs isn't just making loud as all get out noise just because they can, everything has a purpose. It's smart, it's impeccable, and it's even a little fun (especially so when you get to see these boys kill it live). An experience not to be missed.
