On its first major tour, Chicago's Mirror Mirror will be bringing some mellower metal to Miami. "We call it melodic metal core," says singer Brandon Butler of his band's style, which combines moments of slower, softer singing backed by more soothing guitar chords with harder and heavier musical breaks. "We tend to fuse a lot of things together," Butler says. "It's kind of what we all like." The band started about a year ago and recorded an EP entitled Tragedy Parade while doing weekend-long tours in and around Michigan. Since then, they've developed their sound and vocabulary and have released their full-length debut, The Priory of Scion, which they're selling for ten bucks at their shows.
