Lord Dying

Summon the Faithless (Relapse)

Record Reviews

Super-colliding black metal's low distortion threshold with the mondo gallop of Monster Magnet and High on Fire, this Portland, Ore., quartet's full-length debut reanimates the classic Relapse Records thunder of ancient Mastodon and Baroness ("Descend into External"). Channeling Matt Pike's fuel huffing ("Dreams of Mercy") and Dave Wyndorf ("Water Under a Burning Bridge"), Summon the Faithless fires massive astral riffs over the top of a rhythmic, underworld sludge. Compositionally primitive but preternaturally confident, the rise of Lord Dying begins. (Thu., 12mid, Dirty Dog Bar)
