Aftershock preview: Chevelle, volume, loudness, and hearing the music this time

ALISON TOON: Chevelle &emdash; Chevelle live 2012
Chevelle, Aftershock 2012
Last time I saw them--at Aftershock 2013--I remember their show being good but incredibly, incredibly loud. I.e., it's a rock concert, it's a metal festival, it's supposed to be loud, but Chevelle were more than that. There's a point at which it's too loud to hear. So this year, I hope to hear the music more than the volume. Because their music is well worth hearing, and their stage show is imbued with high energy.

Take a listen to this year's release, La Gargola, especially "Take Out The Gunman", "One Ocean", and "Twinge".

Looking forwards to seeing and hearing them in... oh not very long now!
