Odam Fei Mud rings in the holiday spirit with demons and swords

Odam Fei Mud is well known for their samurai inspired kabuki-like performances, which is exactly why we love this flier so much. It's just so damn metal it hurts. It also gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect from an Odam Fei Mud show at first glance, namely samurais, violence and rock.

Odam Fei Mud posters, in general, try to capture the mix of B-movie and heavy metal the group is known for, but this one goes above and beyond the call of duty. Without the details on the bottom, this could easily be confused for a movie poster -- that is, if the movie was some whacked out story of a demon fighting a man in a goat costume who is fighting a throng of people. Which, come to think of it, sounds like a great movie and is, more or less, about what you can expect to see at one of these shows.

It's not all performance art this time around, though. The Construct will be on hand to provide some slow-paced prog-metal, and FaceMan will provide its weird version of rock, mixed with bonkers videos. This show is bound to be an experience you'll remember for a while, as all three of these groups are known for putting on kickass concerts. Added bonus: A screening of Lords of Pain, an Adult Swim-esque short film by Tim Cronin and Albert Cook.

This flier's only drawback -- if there is one -- is the font choice on the bottom, which doesn't really mesh with the rest of the art and design. Even so, the rest of the flier is just awesome enough to live with such gripes.
