Monday I went over to the Daily Grind to check out some outer limits metal. Topon Das of Fuck The Facts did some of his solo ambient drone, while Montreal's Mono No Aware and Ottawa's Obsidian Will brought some duo action. All three outfits feature people taking a break from their usual sound.
Here's Topon, dialling in that sound and waking up the neighbours.
Mono No Aware - not to be confused with the American or German combos of the same name - play some rhythmic, melody abusing post-punk.
This is main brain Spencer Curtis, who is also in The Dories (as is drummer Josef McGuigan - this is their break from spiky pop sounds).
As for Obsidian Will, it features members from Stale Cum, who I've heard of but not seen, and Prophets of Gen Zee, who I haven't even heard of. This was their first show, and they have a very fuzzy, doom sound going.
The whole lot!
And, er, that's it, since taking more photos would have meant seriously getting in people's way.
