[Concert review] SHROUD OF THE HERETIC LP release show @ The Alleyway, Portland OR, March 29 ‘14

"Another rainy Saturday night in Portland. Perfect for a show at a dimly lit totally kick ass bar called The Alleyway. Pre-show Mexican food at Las Gorditas started the evening off right and the show started around 9ish. The bands didn’t start until about an hour after I got there, and killing time with IPAs and friends was a great way to kill time while Black Magick Dragon set up."

Tony Howard’s Top 6 Oregon beers
"Some people consider Portland to be the microbrew capital of United States because we have more microbreweries per capita than anywhere else in the country. More strip clubs too, but that’s probably better left for another time. I tried, more or less, to list beers I thought might be easier to find outside of the NW… distribution can be kind of weird, but if you see any of these in your area, check ‘em out."

BENCH PRESS / MARTYR’S TONGUE split 7”
"This split does what a split should do, and that is to introduce relatively unknown bands to people in a short format that’s done walking over your miserable internet-ridden body before you are able to raise an arm to protect yourself…" Read the review in its entirety and listen to both bands HERE.

ODE - Dread Pleasurereview

For fans of Godflesh and doom.

"…The songwriting interprets the bleakness theme of the album, the bass pounding, the guitar anguished, sometimes painfully beautiful in it´s gloom, lyrics written in one word sentences shouted against the wasteland of civilised life."

Perfect song. Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Faded In The Morning. 

halifaxcollect asked: Sounding old is the new new in many a "alternative" whatever-genres these days. Is Unknown Mortal Orchestra the best old sounding band going?

selfdefensefamily:

I was a pioneer of sounding like a grandfather. Hopefully, Self Defense gets a very tiny mention in a lengthy feature about a new band doing it. 

There you have it. Moving on…
