After Grey Wolves, my journey into the Melvins past would continue with their ex-bassist Joe Preston and his solo project Thrones. With a looping pedal, drum machine, and some sort of vocal harmonizer, Joe churned out compelling and doomy rhythms, leads, and everything in between, making for a fascinating one man show. [review from No Fun Fest 2009]BrooklynVegan and Todd P are proud to present a killer lineup of heavy music at Acheron on October 13th! Headlined by the one and only Joe Preston (Thrones) support will come from Christian Mistress, Villains, and one more TBA! $10 will get you in the door.
The show is one of many that Christian Mistress and Thrones will play together, starting in Portland in September, and ending back in the same state on Halloween. All dates below.
Christian Mistress are celebrating their new LP Agony & Opium out NOW via 20 Buck Spin. With classic 80s Euro riffs and a vocalist that brings to mind Geddy Lee, Agony & Opium feels like a lost relic from the NWOBHM. Dig on the killer retro goodness on "Desert Rose" and "Home In The Sun" available for download above.
