As the December Los Angeles-based THE POWER OF THE RIFF closes in, the coordinators of the gathering have added an additional day of mayhem to the event, with a pre-party show leading off the festivities.

The new pre-party for THE POWER OF THE RIFF will take place Friday, December 16th, with three new Southern California acts confirmed for the shredding. Venice crossover icons EXCEL will be headlining the show, in support of the recent reissue of their blazing second album, The Joke's On You. Also added to the party are Inglewood powerviolence squad DESPISE YOU as well as local Los Angeles death-punk sect DETH CRUX.

Saturday, December 17th will feature a headlining set by Cascadian black metal artisans, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM playing Los Angeles for the first time in years, as well as long-running death metal masters INCANTATION, Chicago post-metal outfit PELICAN, the debut performance of hardcore supergroup BLOODCLOT -- comprised of John Joseph, Todd Youth, Joey C. and Nick Oliveri -- Olympia-based punk freaks GAG, Oakland death metal warriors NECROT, and Ohio death/black/crust newcomers, and recent Southern Lord signees CRYPT ROT.

Sunday, December 18th will be dominated by NEUROSIS making a special return to LA to headline the event. The rest of the evening sees Southern California metal/hardcore trio NAILS making their first live appearance since the band went on hiatus several months ago, Bay-Area post/sludge act KOWLOON WALLED CITY, Arizona death faction GATECREEPER, Los Angeles' own hardcore-punk savages OBLITERATIONS, and Southern Lord-signed blazing hardcore outfit LIES.
