Portrayal of Guilt

City of Caterpillars, Portrayal of Guilt, Glassing, BFF

Let’s consider Portrayal of Guilt’s hellward trajectory in tectonic terms. Before Austin’s heaviest exports could mill about in the molten mantle, they were a feral flesh-storm careening into the crust. That’s to say, before POG played slow-tempo sludge metal, they were a crazyass screamo band! All comes full circle as the trio opens for one of their former (or perhaps future? POGLP2023!) genre’s formative groups – Richmond’s City of Caterpillar, who recently released a spindly, apocalyptic sophomore album following a 20-year gap. Glassing’s earth-pounding post-rock and the garage emo of BFF round out the lineup. – Julian Towers
