The seminal doom metal outfit alongside New York and New England heavy music luminaries.

Formed in 1991 by then Disrupt guitarist Terry Savastano, Grief’s style of “extreme doom” was seminal to all things slow, doom, and sludge to follow. For more than a decade, Grief would release several EP’s, splits, full lengths, and compilations before calling it quits. Fast forward to January 2016, Terry’s new version of Grief (including former Grief drummer Chuck Conlon) played their first show as Come to Grief. Since then, Come to Grief have toured all over the United States, Canada and Europe, and released The Worst of Times EP, a split release Take Me In My Sleep / Contusion with Fistula, and the EP, Pray for the End. On May 20, 2022 Come to Grief released their debut full length When the World Dies, on Translation Loss Records.

In a scene that has become largely repetitive, nostalgia driven, and prone to navel gazing, few bands stand out as breaking new ground. With their sophomore full-length Blood from the Lion’s Mouth, Barishi demonstrate that it is still possible to challenge the established formulas of the metal genre by recombining its musical DNA. There is an undeniable progressive undertone in their modern approach to hard guitar based music, but at the same time, the Americans delve into the darker side of extreme sound that defies the happy fret-fingering all too often employed by their peers. Barishi were formed by guitarist Graham Brooks, bassist Jon Kelley, and drummer Dylan Blake in Southern Vermont in the spring of 2010. The US band originally performed as an instrumental trio throughout the east coast of the United States, which they relentlessly toured. Barishi provides the listener with earth-shattering grooves and savage vocals born in the verdant mountains of Vermont. Prepare to be pounded on and thunderstruck with ecstatic metal from the ancient hills of New England.

Formed in late 2015, New York’s False Gods is a unique blend of sludge/doom metal mixed with melodic noise and down-trodden hardcore.
