I’d been looking forward to this gig as soon as it was announced. Underground doom metal legends Pagan Altar — on a Saturday, no less — supported by three of the biggest names in Canadian doom.
You knew this one was gonna be special. Ending a two-year hiatus, Truckfighters announced that their 2019 tour would feature their seminal debut Gravity X, played in its entirety…
Monster Magnet kicked off their North American tour last night with a long-awaited Toronto date — I’m not sure they’ve been to Hogtown since I moved here in ’05.
Tribulation is a Swedish dark metal quartet with four albums under its belt…but I hadn’t heard of them until very recently. I guess it shows how allergic to corpse paint I am.
Black Tusk and Whores brought the energy up from Georgia to put a heavy end to the start of the week–with a solid supporting act straight outta Quebec!
Angel Witch has been an active outfit, more or less, since 1978…but they had never played Toronto until 2018.
What’s better than seeing Earthless live? How about seeing Earthless live with lava lights!? The San Diego heavy psych veterans brought their new album…
It was great to see Pallbearer back in Toronto–and as a four-piece this time.
Pink is pretty much the quintessential Boris album. Not only is it the closest they’ve come to that stoner/doom stuff all the kids are listening to these days, but it also contains a few tracks where they kick out the jams like the MC5 on takoyaki…
Evidently I can’t be in seven places at once, so for me, Lee’s was the place to be last night for a pair of hardcore pioneers from both sides of the border.
