Tempe, Arizona’s DED breathed new life into nu-metal at Jub-Jub’s Thirst Parlor in Reno. The show started with Fate Awaits. A four-piece local group that’s combined ages of members are probably younger than me. Their youngest member is a 12-year-old  guitarist who’s 7-string guitar is as big as himself. All cute comparisons aside, they are great.  They have the sound and stage presence of pros. They covered System Of A Down, which is no simple task. Someone I guessed was a band-mom yelled “We love you, Scotty!” during a drum solo. These kids mean business. Hate To Share played next and had the difficult job of following children. Things changed abruptly – choruses suddenly included f-bombs and fog machines were exchanged for vape pens. They combined touches of Slayer, The Misfits and Suicidal Tendencies. DED’s set was a continuous mosh-pit. I sure hope the small children playing “Ring Around the Rosie” evacuated in enough time. The crowd waited with bated breath between songs. DED combines metalcore with a little rap. I sensed some Fred Durst influence. I checked their wiki, and the chocolate starfish himself directed some of their videos. They played Reno on a small break from their tour. They thanked the crowd continuously for supporting and being awesome.
