Heavy and metallic, like our older bands, but more rock’n’roll. Betamax Overdrive turned into Titanpointe, with members of In The Weeds, Squealer, Pines, May Regret, The Extortion, Ol’ Painless, Psilocin and more. No shortage of punk, hardcore and metal, with an emphasis on heavy rock and post-hardcore like Hum, Failure, Quicksand, etc.
FLESH OF THE STARS
Flesh of the Stars is a doom metal band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 2014 by songwriters Matt Ciani and Mike Fox, bassist Travis Marmon, and drummer Nico Ciani. Flesh of the Stars’ music is heavy, melancholic, and melodic. They have released three LPs – Hide, Hosanna, and Anhilla – and a fourth will be released in 2018.
From the darkest reaches of space, the last survivors of a dying world, Stondar have come to earth with an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. A thirst that can only be satiated with high decibel crushing doom. Stondar is Gabe Bott on guitars and John Marino on drums. Building on the Chicago tradition of instrumental metal from the likes of Pelican, Russian Circles, and Bongripper, Stondar takes that intensity and strips it to its core. Drums and riffs, no filler and no pretense, just crushing beats and sludgy jams.
Nequient is a four-piece band from Chicago playing a crusty, sludgy take on metallic hardcore for people who like bands that Kurt Ballou or Scott Hull either play in or produce. If you’re into loud and angry music with plenty of d-beats, single-foot blasts, and the occasional odd time signature, come listen us. If not, you have 25 minutes to pee and grab a beer.
