The bass rivets your attention like a snake curling around your legs. Hold still or the sting will still you for good. You’re screwed and you have American Heritage to thank.
LORD (members of Smoking Popes, and Biscayne)
Chicago-based quartet, LORD, plays a loud and punishing brand of metal. Vintage sensibility, coexisting with progressive modernism, guides the listener through a menacing, inter-woven guitar assault laid atop a megalithic rhythm section. This conceptual journey, on their Asian Man Records debut release, features Asian Man veteran Rob Kellenberger (ex-Slapstick/Colossal/Smoking Popes) on drums.
Ironborn are a horde of ravenous barbarians from the northern wastes, riding across the plains leaving a trail of destruction in their path. They're also a metal band from Chicago playing heavy jams.
