Slashpine Brings the Doom to Roofless Records' Cinema Sounds No. 6
It was an insanely heavy way to start a nice night of music and movies: Bodies tossed across train tracks, horsemen of the apocalypse streaking through snowy nowheres, and local metalheads Slashpine shredding slow and deep into doom-y sonic territory.
A couple days before the show, I asked Roofless Rex boss and Cinema Sounds mastermind Matt Preira about Slashpine. He tried to describe the band for me, saying: "They're an up-and-coming experimental black metal group that tickles the punks pink." But, um, after seeing Slashpine tear their silent clip to shreds, suck the crowd's collective soul, then dissolve into shadows ... I'm 87 percent sure Matt actually meant "They're an up-and-coming force of colossal destruction that scares the world retarded."
Honestly, I was extremely surprised people weren't shitting their popcorn.
