For 23 years, husband and wife duo Jucifer have been utterly wrecking fans with their extreme, fast-paced, raw power sludge metal.

Gazelle Amber Valentine (guitar and vocals) and Edgar Livengood (drums) formed the band in 1993 in the music mecca of Athens, Georgia, and have been touring incessantly ever since. Through this desire to play as many shows as possible, they have earned a nomadic reputation which spurred the creation of NOMADS: Built to Destroy, a documentary film incorporating tour footage.

The film, scheduled for release next year, is the pair’s first foray into filmmaking. Valentine handles the bulk of the editing duties.

The pair are titans on the scene, notorious for their sheer volume and the wall of sound they produce.

They are joined at Gabe’s this Friday, Dec. 2, by Iowa City metal acts Acoustic Guillotine and In the Mouth of Radness. Tickets are $10. The show starts at 10 p.m.
