Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





Usnea take their new tunes to Psycho Las Vegas

Psycho Las Vegas is basically like the Coachella of metal, except it doesn't totally and completely suck ass. If a band makes it to a Psycho stage, being held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino this year, then they're really doing something to speak of with their sound. And that's exactly what Usnea is talented enough to be doing.

Usnea is one of Portland's beloved sludgy doom acts and on top of playing Psycho, they have a whole new album of new material to share with their adoring doomers. They're releasing Portals of Futility on Relapse Records September 8, and they've already shared a bit of what the album will sound like. First, fans got a taste with the almost 10 minute long official audio to "Lathe of Heaven" and now, the band have released a video for "Pyrrhic Victory." It's everything you'd picture it to be and wonderfully so much more.

The band is having a release show for Portals of Futility 9.16 with Thrones, Hands of Thieves and Ninth Moon Black at the Tonic Lounge. They'll be taking off for an extensive at the end of September and well through October so be sure to catch them before they hit the road. And if you happen to be at Psycho this weekend, well, you're a lucky son of a bitch.

Metal trio Mutoid Man tours with Danzig

Sludgy, frenetic, and surprisingly melodic, Mutoid Man serves up nasty, heavy jams with a side of skilled riffage.  Their latest release, War Moans, is 12-tracks worth of head spinning metal aptitude, and - paired with a ground shattering live show - opened the door to a summer US tour with Danzig - dates can be found here. Our friends at Delicious Audio were very curious to know what kind of gear went into making their signature gut-busting sound - check out the link below for a Q&A about it. - by Olivia Sisinni
