PHOTOS: Dark Tranquillity, Swallow The Sun, Enforcer—November 17th, 2016 @ Bada Brew, Joliet, IL

Crest Hill’s Bada Brew isn’t a huge venue, but its intimate nature allows audiences to connect with bands. Dark Tranquillity, now on their eleventh full-length album, have been leading the way alongside other Gothenburg bands in the melodic death metal scene. Atoma comes with a different mindset, but is the same Dark Tranquillity you know and love—different riffs, but embodies the same spirit you’ve come to know intimately over the years.

This same tour package came with Finnish melodic death/doom band Swallow the Sun, Sweden’s own ’80s style thrash band Enforcer, and the equally powerful Starkill.

Enjoy the photos below!
