Wizard Rifle (Portland), Rip Room, Zirakzigil
Drawing from the sounds of Lightning Bolt, Karp, Sonic Youth, Black Sabbath and High on Fire, Wizard Rifle cannot sit still sonically for more than two seconds. Prepare thineself
Nasty, bass-heavy riffs with dark vocal harmonies that channel Lou Reed and The Raincoats.
ZIRAKZIGIL produces an onslaught of crushing, heavy riffage fused with sporadic flourishes of progressive insanity. With songs that span 20 minutes, weaving epic tails of wizards and demons waging battle on perilous mountain peaks, ZIRAKZIGIL brutalizes the audience with a non-stop barrage of unexpected twists and turns, zigzagging some groove laden intermediary between the complexity of Yes and Rush, and the barbarity of Neurosis and High On Fire. For ZIRAKZIGIL every song is a challenge, a challenge to be tackled head on with unyielding ferocity. Truly, a sight to behold.
