Bruce Lamont with Bloodiest @ IL Centennial Monument (more by Grant MacAllister)
The A.V. Club Chicago completed a massive, four part analysis of Chicago's metal scene yesterday (11/3), dubbed simply An oral history of Chicago's metal scene. Featured throughout, is commentary from only the most important figures in the movement.
A short list of these gentlemen is below..
Scott Carroll and Mike Perun of CianideThe A.V. Club's timeline runs from the early '80s all the way up to present day. The most standout exchange of the article, is between Will Lindsey (Indian) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Bloodiest).

...AND MANY MORE
WL: Bruce Lamont has at least made guest appearances on everybody's record here. And there's the connection that Sanford [Parker] has really developed with his studio. So many of us all go record there. People from everywhere record with him. Indian recorded with him. Nachtmystium recorded with him. Bloodiest recorded with him. And there's all his own projects--Circle Of Animals, High Confessions, and whatnot.Check out the early years (Part 1), location, location, location (Part 2), the '90s (Part 3), and a scene resurgent (Part 4) over at the A.V. Club Chicago.
BL: Yeah, there's a lot of that going on. This is a very incestuous musical town, and a few of us are just outright whores. I'll freely admit that. I think that's healthy, as well, because you get a fresh perspective on creating with those people, and you might be able to bring that back to another project, and kind of look at it from a different angle or go about it differently than you would have if you just stay with the same people all the time. That's always been my thought behind it. That's why I've played in a number of bands in all the years I've been ... collaborating, and all that stuff. We're all friends, man. We just like to jam with each other. We just love music.
Locrian at Europa (more by Greg Cristman)
On the occaision of the release of a new Locrian track from a new LP ("Chalk Point" from The Clearing, available now at BrooklynVegan), we cornered the Chicago dark ambient trio about some of their favorite Chicago haunts.
Your LPs always sound like an amalgam of influences, everything from black metal to dark ambient to punk and goth all come to mind. What are some favorite Chicago record stores that influenced the Locrian style?
André: My personal favorite place to buy records is a place in my neighborhood, the Ukrainian Village, called Permanent Records. They have a pretty limited selection of stuff, but what they do have tends to be really interesting stuff. Their staff have great recommendations too if you're not looking for anything in particular. They just expanded to L.A. and I'm really happy that their business seems to be doing well because they are such cool people.
There used to be a place that sold only metal called Metal Haven, but it closed down a while ago. Their stuff tended to be pretty expensive and you would have to really sift through their stuff to find anything good, but that was a descent place.
I recently picked up the new Tim Hecker LP from Permanent and that has definitely made a big impression on me. Before that I picked up Neil Young On The Beach which is an essential album to own.
