Inter Arma, Valkyrie, Genocide Pact @ Strange Matter, Richmond, VA (PHOTOS)
With a sound that incorporates elements of prog rock, doom, black and death metal, Inter Arma is one of the more intriguing bands on the Relapse Records roster. The quintet has been out touring in support of their Paradise Gallows album since it came out back in 2016, and with a European trek coming up with Deafheaven, Inter Arma was welcomed back in their hometown of Richmond, VA for a gig (Aug. 31) also featuring Valkyrie, Genocide Pact, and Paint Store at Strange Matter. Though she missed Paint Store, photographer Melissa Skinner was there for the rest of the show and she was nice enough to send me some of her favorite shots from the night. -Carlos Ramirez
