Since the weather inched out of the minus-30-with-windchill zone Friday night, I decided to make a short trip to the basement of 612 Gladstone and check out more heaviosity at the House With No Name (not its actual name). Toronto doomsters IRN were passing through town, house resident Tom of Spilt Guts has a new band and Topon Das of Fuck The Facts has some drones, so everything came together quite nicely.
First up, some gripping action with Tom (of Spilt Guts fame, like everyone else in the freshly minted combo)!
Phil hits, offers Vulcan salute!
The whole see-through lot!
And so on!
I feel like I've seen quite a bit of Topon Das lately - in addition to Fuck The Facts, I've caught him solo and with Merdarahta. I'm really liking his drone stuff, too.
Adjusting action! He's certainly doing his part to keep the folks at Fairfield in clover.
I admit I fooled around quite a bit with the shutter speed ... can you tell?
Well, it was a good idea in theory.
IRN crushed the rest of the night away with some Sleep-y metal molasses. It's well worth checking their "sludge sewer drone" out on Bandcamp. Here's some hairy action with guitarist Ken and bassist/growler Jeff.
And so on!
Great sets from all concerned, and a good crowd too.
