Indigo Raven plays a style of Doom/Post Metal rooted in Chelsea Wolfe’s heaviest excursions, contrasting atmospherically monolithic guitar chugs and slow burn rhythms with ethereal vocals and occasional electronics. Those vocals in particular help the French trio stand out, putting on a passionately bluesy performance that differs from the more vulnerable approach of peers like Frayle and Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard.

First on the bill are local act Eradikator, a band I’ve caught on a couple of previous occasions at other events. They play an attractive style of Thrash, though there are maybe twenty or so in for the start of their set, with that number growing steadily through their set to around triple that by the end. It’s certainly likeable and ably played with those in – even though most hid at the back – seeming to enjoy the thrashy grooves laid out. The 30-minute set goes without a hitch and provides a good, fast start to the evening. Continue reading →
