Doomed to Suffer Presents: COUGH, Ghloas, Sadgiqacea, Hollenlarm
September 26, 2010 @ 09:00pm - Doomed to Suffer & Philly F/M Fest Present:
Doomed at heart but with a healthy appreciation for filthy sludge and bong-ripping psychedelia, this drugged-out quartet draw upon the power of the almighty riff to unleash their crushing odes to the infinite. Even their name is a dead giveaway – ever really listen to the beginning of “Sweet Leaf?” There you go. This year will see the recent Relapse signees releasing a split with UK doom heroes The Wounded Kings on the always-excellent Forcefield Records, embarking on their first-ever European tour this spring, then rolling across the USA in November. Thank Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, and a LOT of weed for making this band possible.
"This New Jersey-based quartet shares members with local heavyweights Deathbeds, but has carved out its own niche within the city's heavy music scene, blowing eardrums and dropping jaws with their spaced-out progressive metal compositions. Equal parts Mogwai, Mouth of the Architect, Russian Circles, Jesu, and Sonic Youth, Gholas are a rare and compelling sort of band, one with its own aesthetic, sound, and raw, beating heart."
Heavy, slow, and atmospheric progressive doom from one of the Philly underground's rising stars. SADGIQACEA (sad-juh-kay-shuh) is a ferocious and epic power duo from the Philadelphia/South Jersey Shore area, using detuned guitars and thundering percussion to create a shape-shifting foundation of dripping darkness, while soaring vocals and echo-drenched strings pierce through the toxic sludge, painting a face-melting lucid dream of metaphysical pain and ecstasy.
Bleakest doom, crushing black. Amber, PA.
