She Likes It Heavy

May 21, 2014

Sharp, angular and difficult to listen to: perfect for the weirdo in your life.

Denigrating in the Tanks: Idylls (Brisbane, AU) (0:28-3:02)


Violent, aggressive grind from of course, Denver.  Members hail from Primitive Man.


9 Fruitless Years Of Total Fucking Agony: Vermin Womb (Denver) (4:12-8:15)


Dozer is one of my fave bands, and spun-off to Greenleaf, thank gawd because Dozer has been defunct for awhile.  Because of the talent, Greenleaf has attracted members from other high-profile bands like Truckfighters and others but I can’t remember.


Ocean Deep: Greenleaf (Sweden) (8:47-14:13)


Greg Wilkinson is brilliant and anything he touches is awesome, raw and relevant.


Sex Teeth: DeathGrave (Oakland) (14:38-16:42)


Local band is making it big, Hornss is getting a ton of press and deservedly so.  Catchy, groovey stoner that thrash out, making it very fist-worthy.


Maker Of The Moons: Hornss (San Francisco) (17:25-20:23)


Doesn’t matter that Barghest has one of the stupidest album covers I have ever seen.  Their take on black metal is in one word: bad-the fuck-ass.  Barghest, is that with a hard g or soft g sound?


Agonizing Spiritual Descent: Barghest (Baton Rouge) (20:52-26:02)


Minot are gorgeous instrumental proggy and math-oriented, but sometimes become groovy and just damn fun.  Is that ok? For music to be fun? 


Tharsis: Minot (Oakland/NC) (27:25-33:39)


Owl’s new album is akin to the dawn.  I don’t know what that means, but maybe it is about dark giving way to energy?  If so, I guess that makes sense.  It is very darkly pummeling, but doesn’t linger it.  Instead it gives way to a larger brighter composition of sound. 


We Ascend As We Fall: Owl (Germany) (34:13-37:55)


I would leave you, in a second, for the dude in Misery Index.


Conjuring the Cull: Misery Index (Baltimore) (38:39-43:24)


Swedish heartfelt sad stuff = funeral doom.


Earthless: Doom:VS (Sweden) (44:17-51:47)


Experimental droney growly metal and drone and stuff.  Atmospheric!


Väärä Kuu: Katakombi (Finland) (52:15-57:26)

Spastic vocals to end the show.


Konditionierungsapparat: Japanische Kampfhorspiele (Germany) (57:59-END)
