Ekktoplasm/Alcindor/Vulcanite/Sacrificial Betrayal – Another Round RVA – Richmond, VA, Saturday, February 10, 2024

All four bands crushed it. No two bands filled the same space musically, but they all gave the crowd something to take home with them. Whether that was just memories or new merch, everyone left with a piece of the show. Nights like this are special because these are not touring shows. There is just something wonderful about a one-off show that may not ever happen again. The unique mixture of styles comes together for one evening of Metal Worshipping, then fades into history, lovingly brought forth in the memories of those fortunate enough to witness the moment.

Unmothered – Corridors

Unmothered was formed in Austin, Texas, in 2013. The COVID pandemic hit them pretty hard and they partially split with the core of the band relocating to Columbus, Ohio. Most of the sound is Fuzzy-Doom Metal, but they bring in elements of Sludge and Melodic Metal to craft a broader, deeper sound that touches different parts of the brain. Multiple short instrumentals on this album allow for a quick rest, giving the brain time to prepare for what comes next.

Blazoner – Escape to Electric Land

Blazoner is a three-piece band hailing from Fredericksburg, Virginia. One thing that is immediately noticeable is that all three members provide vocals, putting them in a category not often used; vocal Power Trio. This allows for some very interesting voice usage, including harmonic and dissonant themes where they use cleans to offset grit and distortion. Blazoner weaves through many styles and genres, including, but not limited to, Doom, Heavy, Thrash, and Melodic Metal. Heavy riffing is bolstered with equally heavy rhythms that wrap around the electrifying vocals to create a sonic wave that will wash over you and leave you waiting for the next wave to bring another crash of audible heaviness.
