Join Fernando’s for a night of sludge, stoner, rock and doom metal courtesy of Heron, Bort, and The Grudge. Heron takes musical influences from bands such as Isis, Sleep, and Corrupted and combines them with existential lyrical content and audio samples, resulting in a swirling miasma of oppressive guitar tone, cannon-like drums, and bestial howls.
Heron carries as much gear with them on tour as possible in a never-ending search for perfect tone and will absolutely destroy any live venue.
Through deep desert grooves drenched in the gloom of the Pacific Northwest, Bort wades through the sea of hair and empties to unleash their brand of fuzz rock on any and all. The four piece from Vancouver have wasted no time in getting their craft heard, as they’re set to release their second record in as many years.
Recorded in the final days of 2018, the five track offering from Bort delves further into the dark and psychedelic. The Unblinking Eye sees the band embrace their heavier influences, while retaining the distinct characteristics introduced on their debut LP, Crossing the Desert (2018).
The quartet always aim to keep you on your toes, perfectly demonstrated with the inclusion of their sonically crushing rendition of the 1980’s Tears for Fears classic “Everybody Wants To Rule The World”. Gruff vocals, bass heavy instrumentation, and spaced out guitar melodies; this is undoubtedly a Bort record through and through.
