Portland-based heavy-rock four-piece LORD DYING make their annual pilgrimage to our humble abode tonight and we can't wait to welcome their massive, crushing riffs into our bosom for another HEAVY Free Monday. Proving that a lack of sunlight can lead to some epically sludgey doom, LORD DYING released their debut album, Summon The Faithless, on Relapse Records. Embarking on a tour around Europe and the U.S. throughout the winter and spring, LORD DYING's titanic, disorienting brand of metal is not to be missed live. One of our favorite local instrumental metal bands, ELECTRIC HAWK proves you don't need many people on stage to create a sonic apocalypse or a singer to make your songs as catchy as the plague. THE HAWK, as they're lovingly known 'round these parts, continuously blows us away with their punishing, mathy approach to metal and they're about as loud as it comes, so don't forget those earplugs, kiddies. J.R. ROBINSON is a Chicago-based sound artist who works under the name WREKMEISTER HARMONIES to explore the darkest corners of minimalistic synth, drone, and ambient music, combined with visual projections he creates. His Thrill Jockey debut, You've Always Meant So Much To Me was released on June 11th. The recording is an album-length composition spread over two sides of vinyl, featuring some of Chicago's most infamous minds in the metal and experimental worlds.
