Chicago post metal trio Snow Burial tour the UK starting 16th January with a handful of select dates. Their remarkable 2016 album “Victory in Ruin” was an excellent set so the chance to see them should not be missed.
The band draws from a variety of influences, most notably the Melvins, Converge, and Cult Of Luna, to create their own unique voice. At the time I said:
It mixes up sludge, thrash, shoegaze and math rock coming across a little like the bastard offspring of Fucked Up, “Red” era King Crimson and The Melvins. With former members of Hoss, Canyon, Doctor This Virus Is Silence the band self-financed and released two EPs entitled Oxblood Siren and Oxblood Tides in 2014. They make a very impressive noise for a three piece and must have one of the dirtiest bass sounds in the known cosmos. The album kicks a lot of butt and manages to balance the melodic, the progressive and the downright noisy into an impressive set. Recommended!
