for any of y'all interested in some serious doom drone...
(from last fm)
Esoteric, experimental artisan’s LOCRIAN will be performing their first shows in almost two years. Now based in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD they just finished their Relapse Records full-length debut, “Return to Annihilation” which was recorded by Greg Norman (PELICAN, RUSSIAN CIRCLES, SERENA MANEESH) at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago, IL. The album will then be mastered by Jason Ward at Chicago Mastering Service. And should be out in May/June.
Chicago’s DEAD DRAGON MOUNTAIN is largely a recording project by Jacob Essak and Anthony Dunn of Sun Splitter which explores a vein of deep psychedelic music saturated with doom, black metal, noise and industrial.
While improvisation, found sounds, and obsessive layering are important aspects of DDM’s creative process, they also employ a wide variety of synthetic drum’s/rhythms, oscillators and keyboards resulting in long free ranging psych/drone meditations to short brutal black doom attacks.
