Bay Area Brutality Round Up: Light This City, Necrot, End Hip End It news

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 4:33 PM (PST)

A few super cool Bay Area related happenings of note for you today, metal goblins.

Well the raddest news of the day in Metal Land is that cult melodeth band Light This City are reuniting! The Bay Area band were amazing and their final album Stormchaser showed they went out at the top of their game, but I always felt like that was one band who it was a real shame we never saw more from other than the 2010 farewell shows. We love us some Heartsounds and Wilderness Dream, but Light This City were also soooo awesome.

In September of 2015, Darkest Hour requested that LIGHT THIS CITY play the San Francisco date of their 20th anniversary tour. The band quickly reunited within a few months to rehearse one final set that would celebrate the band’s four-album career. The show was absolutely one for the books, sparking the flame which lead the band to reunite.

Album Review: Acid King – “Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere”

Heavy and atmospheric, stoner band Acid King return with their 2015 album, “Middle of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere”. Fronted by San Francisco natives, Lori S. (vocals and guitar), along with bandmates, Joey Osbourne (drums) and Peter Lucas (bass), this trio delivers on slow groove and ambiance. Unlike their previous efforts, this album’s vocal stylings and guitar work play more on the doomy side of stoner, offering the listener a darker and more introspective tone than what might be expected from their earlier work on Acid King III. After a slow building and jamming Intro track, Acid King’s second track, Space Pictures, coalesces into a thick, unassuming, sludge-inspired sound, placing the band’s sound somewhere between King Woman meets Sleep meets Electric Wizard. Add to that, the driving doom of their sixth track, “Infinite Skies”, and you’ll feel like donning your biker jacket and going for a ride.
