Witch Mountain, Diesto, Solid Giant, Red Shield

[METAL CRACK] The long-simmering cauldron of sludge that is Portland’s Witch Mountain—which, standard disclaimer, features WW contributor Nathan Carson on drums—is a gateway drug for doom metal. Even innocents to the world of gothic fonts and leather wrist cuffs will be lured in by the siren song of singer Uta Plotkin, whose formidable pipes produce big, bluesy wails that are more Pat Benatar than, say, Goatwhore. But before too long, you’ll start to find the thundering riffs and pentatonic screeches that lurk below those deceptively tuneful vocals become equally intoxicating, until eventually, Plotkin lets out a deep, bone-shaking growl and you throw your head back, raise your fists to the gods and roar along in delight. Then it’s too late for you, my friend: Grow your hair out and start brushing up on your Finnish. This show celebrates the vinyl release of Witch Mountain’s 2012 album, the nationally praised Cauldron of the Wild.
