Scorched Tundra is proud to announce the entire lineup for its sixth edition. This year’s installment – taking place on September 2nd and 3rd at The Empty Bottle in Chicago – will feature Scorched Tundra alumni, as well as the most devastating bands from around the USA.
Swedish act MONOLORD bring some doomed fuzz troping, sludge delving, and stoner loving chaos into the mix of life.The Gothenburg trio have quickly grown into one of Europe's most exciting young groups. Considering their hometown is one of Chicago's sister city, this is the only way to headline tonight's monstrous lineup. Fusing blues, doom, and psychedelic rock, Chicgao band THE ATLAS MOTH look to their hometown for inspiration in their post-metal experiments. With layers of rumbling guitars and synthesizers, the band takes a more textural approach to metal, creating a maelstrom of heavy riffs and swirling atmospherics that evokes Isis and Pink Floyd in equal measure. BEASTMAKER specializes in Sabbath inspired central valley doom rock. Hailing from Fresno, CA, they formed in 2014 and released their debut album, Lusus Naturae on Rise Above Records in March 2016. The band’s music has a strong Black Sabbath influence. SWEAT LODGE are aptly named, as the sound produced by this Austin TX, vibe tribe is best experienced in a dark, smoke filledroom. Eschewing modern tendencies in heavy music to rely on brute force, the group combines epic, technical songwriting with enough neolithic heaviness to keep the cavemen happy.
