Lord Dying come from Portland, Oregon, a place over abundant with purveyors of the heavy riff. A region where the inhabitants are plagued with nerve and joint damage due to lack of sunlight. In a time where everyone is trying to out-sludge or out-doom each other Lord Dying gives something less than a fuck. They are a metal band with members of Black Elk , Portals, Le Force, and Cremains, who i
n their short, one years time as a band have shared the stage with Unsane, Red Fang, Yob, Valient Thorr, and others locally. They have also braved the west coast twice, the first time alone, only to meet up with crazy prog-shredmeisters Danava and heavy lust-lifers Lecherous Gaze for a few shows, followed a few months later by another co-headling tour with local heavy punishers Nether Regions. Shortly after Lord Dying teamed up with longtime bros Kelly and Erica G and solidified the first monumental release, Lord Dying "s/t", in 7" form on his Powerblaster Records label. Lord Dying are here to pummel with heavy riffs and promote simpler things like Cold brew-Hot Shower.
Black Fast was formed from four corn-fed Midwestern metal nerds who met in the college town of Edwardsville, near the campus of Southern Illinois University. Trevor and Ryan were studying jazz at the time, but all the guys really wanted to do was start a metal band. “We like to take all the elements of the styles we love and put every bit of energy and excitement we have into it. It’s a driving, pedal-to-the-metal sound that makes you go crazy. That’s what it’s all about. That’s what we live for.”
Since 2010, Black Fast has been melting faces and sharing the stage with bands like Havok, Vektor, Toxic Holocaust, Cavalera Conspiracy, Revocation, Forbidden, Warbringer, Nachtmystium, Landmine Marathon, Enabler, Lazarus AD, Abigail Williams, Lord Dying, Onslaught and Agrimonia.
Black Fast recorded a self-titled EP in 2011 and in 2012 Black Fast won the St. Louis ‘Headbang for the Highway,’ battle of the bands contest, earning them the opportunity to play the Sumerian Records stage at the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in Kansas City with Upon a Burning Body and I Breather.
In August 2013 they self-released their first full-length album, ‘Starving Out the Light,’ which helped them win the title as ‘Best Metal Band in St. Louis’ from the Riverfront Times for the second time in three years.
e started a band. Nothing interesting.
Four antisocial dudes taking delight in pushing contemporary hardcore punk into the dissonant shade of the dark astral unknown, and some shit.
