Return of Guitarless Metal 

Judgement Day

On Oakland string-shredding trio Judgement Day's last album, Dark Opus, brothers Anton and Lewis Patzner stretched the definition of a typical metal record. Now, three years later, Anton says they're continuing to expand the expectations of what a violin and cello should sound like. Though he spends most his time touring with Bright Eyes, Anton says he'll move back to the Bay Area to start recording new material with his bro, who just graduated from Baltimore's Peabody Conservatory of Music. The result may be more metal or less, effects, and a lot more progressive song structure, while maintaining a pop framework. In the meantime, get a sneak peek of new songs when the band plays with Captain Ahab and Silian Rail on Tuesday, June 12 at the Hemlock Tavern in SF. 9:30 p.m., $8. HemlockTavern.com
