SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Las Vegas metal band Destruction of a Rose will take the stage at 5 p.m. today at the Blue Moose Tap House, 211 Iowa Ave. The all-ages show will also include local bands A Casual Affair, Such Creatures Exist, Amidst a Ruined City, and Sunday’s Best.

Destruction of a Rose has been a part of the hard-core metal scene for nearly four years. The five-member band grew in popularity after its 2008 release, Unseen Destroyer. The songs had diversity in the singing style, combining rap with metal screams and calm vocals.

Since the 2010 production of *America Hell*, the band has been continually on tour. The album looks at the public’s lost faith in the American government. The band believes the U.S should look more closely at the underlying issues of social problems rather than dwelling on them. America Hell is described as having a more mature sound compared with previous CDs, as well as heavier instrumental parts.

Iowa City will be the second stop for the band’s 2011 tour. The group played earlier this week in Bloomington, Ill. The last performance this month will take place on Jan. 27 at the Atlas Theatre in Colorado.
