Yamantaka // Sonic Titan at The Garrison – 6/15/12
NXNE 2012 Day 2

Like a Japanese Kiss, the self-described “Noh-wave” seven-piece were as much about the live spectacle as about their music, which oscillated between standard, straightforward rock and doom metal atmospherics. Not surprisingly, the band were better when they practised the latter, incorporating jabs of keyboard and harmonized group vocals into their full-bodied sound. They started weak — plodding tempos and too-simple drumming did the band no favours — but by the end, they’d won over the venue, using phrase cycling and repetition to build and release tension. -[Exclaim]

NXNE‘s second night (June 15) included shows at more than thirty venues across Toronto. Pictures from shows at The Garrison, with Yamantaka//Sonic Titan (the subject of the above review), Doldrums, Art vs Science, and Peter Kernel, and at Silver Dollar Room, with TOPS and UN, are below.
