Lord Dying, Knyfs, Nude Intruder 

When: Thu., July 18, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8
I first saw Lord Dying last year opening for Indian and Witch Mountain, and the four-piece from Portland, Oregon, made a strong impression, though they’d only been a band for two years and were still a year from a proper release. They’re heavy as fuck and solid all the way through; there’s no filler at all on their brand-new debut album, Summon the Faithless (Relapse). Though they’re not as rhythmically fluid and challenging as High on Fire (to whom they’re often compared), they’re not just four-on-the-floor either; the twists and turns of “Greed Is Your Horse” and “Dreams of Mercy” can be downright neck breaking, especially if your hair is appropriately long. If you’ve been looking for a new metal band that’s no-frills, more or less unhyphenated, and all about the raw riffing, you could do a hell of a lot worse (and you probably have). —Monica Kendrick Knyfs and Nude Intruder open.
