Year of the Cobra- Burn your Dead EP MER

Some quick words on one of my Northwest favorites Year of the Cobra's new release.
5 songs that show a band who's growing and maturing at a rapid rate not unlike a face grabber bursting onto an unsuspecting host. Amy's voice and vocal phrasing is haunting, luring and growing, and I mean that respectively as I already thought she was a kickass vocalist.
There's plenty of cool things going on here, whether its Amy's bass/vox being effect manipulated or Jon's ripping drum playing leading in and out of  fast-slow dynamics. Jon and Amy do a great job of filling up space sonically on record and live, especially since there's only 2 of them. Plus they are hella loud live, which tickles my fancy.
If you don't already own their 1st EP and the 1st full length I'd suggest doing so.
This dynamic duo is road hardened from back to back tours and guess what, they are in fact heading out on tour starting off in Bozeman MT.
Catch them at the Indianapolis Doomed and Stoned fest 2017 Saturday October 7th!
Burn your Dead is another fine addition to an already great catalog.
Official release Oct 27th.

Descendants of Crom Festival-Cattivo-Pittsburgh, PA September 30, 2017

On Saturday September 30, 2017 at 3:00 PM EST all hell will break loose on the City of Pittsburgh, PA. An event of epic proportions, 17 killer Stoner Rock/Doom/Metal bands are set to ignite the two stages of Cattivo in the Lawrenceville section of the city. This festival is the first of its kind for Pittsburgh and I say it is about damn time! Event organizer Shy Kennedy (Horehound/Blackseed Records) has excelled at putting together such a fine collection of bands, especially by nabbing Pittsburgh-based doom legends Penance (Alpha & Omega lineup). Growing up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh I am a little giddy about this festival. From the scorching NWOBHW sounds of Pittsburgh's own Lady Beast to the instrumental Doomy Jazz of  Philly's Stinking Lizaveta, there is enough to appease the tastes of everyone attending. 

For the overzealous, there will be an acoustic pre-fest at the Full Pint Wild Side Pub, click here for more info.

Lineup:

CANT
MONOLITH WIELDER
LADY BEAST
ENHAILER
