Eight Gigs: Wastewalker

Sun., June 5, 7 p.m., Cooper’s Ale Works, $10-$13

With band members from Alterbeast and Journal, and the now-defunct Sepsis and Soma Ras, this is one supporting act you don’t want to miss. “We’re looking at a late July/early August release date for our new album Funeral Winds. …This will be our first show and we’re totally stoked!” says guitarist Nate Graham. Fans of Death, Nocturnus, Pestilence or other like-minded and technically challenging death-metal fare should come out en masse. Also on the bill are Australia’s King Parrot, Child Bite, Purification by Fire and Ostracized. 235 Commercial Street in Nevada City, http://wastewalker.bandcamp.com.
