What would Halloween week be without a dark metal show from one of Missoula’s longest running heavy bands? “Incomplete” would be one answer; “effed,” would be another. This year the band signed on new vocalist Leif Winterrowd and seems to be playing out more often and playing in far away metal lands such as Polson. But that’s what is necessary to be a loud band in a quiet state. You have to log a lot of miles and seek out your audience: no busking for the metal crowd. Right now, the band has a Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording, mixing and production of their third full-length album Alive in Desolation. As of this writing, the band has received almost 40 percent of the full $10,000 it seeks. Like a lot of metal bands, the music allows them to share their serious side with the rest of us, but one look at some of the Kickstarter rewards reminds you that these dudes are as silly as any other bunch. Offers include a date with a member of Walking Corpse ($5,000), an 8-hour work day from all the band members that includes a private show and barbecue ($10,000). Finally, Winterrrowd will tattoo your name above his corn cob tattoo on his leg for a mere $10,000 donation. Of course, you could just give $20 for a shirt, but where’s the fun in that? —Jason McMackin Monk’s Bar, 225 Ryman St. on Thu., Oct. 25, at 7 PM, with Universal Choke Sign, A Balance of Power, Vengeance and Undun.
