Chevelle Concert Review with Aeges and Silver Snakes
May 16, 2017
Central Illinois rock fans love their Chevelle. The venue was about ten fans short of being sold out. Peoria and the surrounding areas have a lot of phenomenal rock shows going through the area. The Pretty Reckless performed the night before and had to be moved as they were initially slated for the same night. Rock fans in the area have a plethora of great rock shows to attend and always choose Chevelle when they are in town.
The night started with Los Angeles’ Silver Snakes who has been to the area opening for Korn. Their sound is a fusion of industrial metal with progressive metal. Their latest album Saboteur is out now. Their set warmed up the crowd for the main act.

ÆGES, pronounced as ‘Ages’ was the second opener and they also hail from Los Angeles. The band just played and had a sound that was eclectic that reminded me of Deftones or Between The Buried and Me. The vocals were lower however the music kept us all engaged in the songs.

The crowd was ready for Chevelle whose latest album “The North Corridor” is definitely their hardest to date. The single “Door to Door Cannibals” is blowing up air waves and streaming devices alike. Chevelle is one of the most underrated bands. Their live shows draws in their fans to a fervent pace to just get lost in the music. Even the newest songs become fan favorites to sing along to. Whether it’s “The Red”, “An Island”, or “Vitamin R”, the crowd loves this band. Catch them in person at these dates: Tour Dates
