Wandering metal show/tour/festival booking heavyweight Power of the Riff have announced two special Los Angeles shows in December. Going down on December 17-18, the two-day, 14-band fest will take over the Regent Theatre. So far they've only announced the headliners Wolves in the Throne Room (who play the 17th) and Neurosis (the 18th), but given the history of these events and the exciting nature of those headliners it seems sure to be a great weekend for metalheads.

Neurosis have their new album Fires Within Fires on the way. Wolves in the Throne Room play their third of three NYC shows tonight (9/13).

Neither band has played LA in a while, so this is a very cool chance to catch them both in one shot. Tickets are not yet available, but we'll keep you posted on that, as well as further lineup info as it becomes available. Listen to music from both below.
