Headbangers prepare for a ball as three of Chicago's loudest heavy-metal tribute bands set off stagequakes at Durty Nellie's during the Monsters of Mock show. Meticulously aping the snarls and jackhammer riffs of Bay Area legends Metallica, Blackened blitzkriegs through a high-stamina set of hits, from the thrashy "Master of Puppets" to the sludgier "Enter Sandman." Dirty Deeds specializes in the early Bon Scott era of AC/DC, doling out hip-shakers such as "Highway to Hell" and "Big Balls" with ragged, stratospheric vocals achieved by drinking whiskey-and-razorblade milkshakes. Rounding up the hell-raising triumvirate, Judas Beast mixes a potent concoction of 80% Iron Maiden and 20% Judas Priest, appeasing metal gods with operatic vocals, a rhythm section of smoldering anvils, and accurate props such as Iron Maiden's famed skeletal mascot, Eddie.
