Solitude Aeturnus in Las Vegas

“It’s time to Sab out on y’all,” said the Yeti-sized longhair covered in more ink than the Sunday New York Times.

The dude is question was John Fitterer, frontman for L.A. metallers Crowned in Fire, and the “Sab” he was referring to was Black Sabbath.

It was a telling statement early on at the Doom in June fest Saturday at the Cheyenne Saloon, where the aforementioned Brit metal pioneers loomed almost as large over the event as the monster riffs that defined the day…

All the way from Finland, Hooded Menace brought some crippling death doom in the form of a monstrously heavy, elephantine crawl that rumbled like tectonic plates colliding.

Maryland’s Iron Man followed, overcoming some drummer troubles (they had to play with a replacement) to wow with their upper-register, trad metal classicism.

Scott “Wino” Weinrich made the acoustic guitar sound electric during his unplugged set, which he ended by walking into the crowd.

And then there were headliners Solitude Aeturnus, who quickly demonstrated why they were perched atop the lineup… The band played the fan favorite “Opaque Divinity” early on in their set, and fittingly so: For doom lifers, it was a moment that at least approached the divine. -[Las Vegas Review-Journal]

The second installment of doom and stoner rock fest Doom in June went down in Las Vegas at the Cheyenne Saloon on June 4th. The lineup included Solitude Aeturnus, Wino, Hooded Menace, Iron Man, Stone Axe, Wofat, Leeches of Lore, White Witch Canyon, Meth Leppard, Hallowed Engine, Psilocybin, …Of The Horizon, Crowned By Fire, Dead Neon, and Swamp Donkey.

Hooded Menace‘s short tour also brought them to Maryland Deathfest, Union Pool, and Chaos in Tejas. I hope they don’t think we’re stalking them.

Wino played Mercury Lounge in February, and as part of Saint Vitus at Irving Plaza in March. Wino’s Shrinebuilder bandmate Al Cisneros plays with his band Sleep at Terminal 5 on June 22nd with Winter and White Hills.
