Bloodiest filled the stage then filled the room with a more baroque -- or maybe medieval -- take on blackened avant-garde metal and they varied between complex and pretty repetitions and all-out stompers. The last two main songs (I think it was), with more-aggressive vocals from Bruce Lamont, blew me away.
Indian wrapped up the night with a heavy set of bleak doom, with a nod, maybe, to early Unsane or other metal-thinking post hardcore stuff. The bass guitar was returning through the amps as a physical entity, it was so thick, heavy, and low-down.
I was pleased to see so many friends at the show, as it had been a while, with the holidays, and all.
